Lady Gaga was forced to cancel a concert in Jakarta, Indonesia, after Islamic groups objected to her show; one group, the Islamic Defenders Front, threatened to stop Gaga from getting off her plane. Police, in turn, refused to issue the pop star a permit, and the show, which was scheduled for June 3, has been canceled.
