Malaysia: American music performance banned from tv



American music performance banned from tv

Officials in Malaysia apparently found the dance and costume of American superstar Madonna so provocative that they banned it from been shown on Malaysian television

Wearing a lilac leotard and bustier with matching high heels, the 47-year-old pop icon gyrated around a pole during a much-hyped performance with the virtual band Gorillaz at the Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, USA.
“We decided that from our point of view, Madonna’s performance was not suitable for the 21:30 primetime audience,” a spokesperson for broadcaster 8TV network said. The decision to cut the scene was made “because of what she was wearing”, the official added.
