Malaysian Islamic students protested Gwen Stefani's performance because of, um, well, Gwen Stefani. They don't want her to wear revealing outfits or do anything naughty on stage. Gwen said "Go to Hell. This is my show. People here like my music. They are lining up to see my show. If you don't like it, you get everyone else not to come. I'm doing my show the way I designed and rehearsed it for the type of culture that would allow an artist like me to exist and become popular. If you don't like it, then stuff it. If you won't let me perform it the way I see fit, then call me back when you get some good ideas."
Oh, wait...That's what I imagine Gwen Stefani would have said if we lived in a world that made sense. Instead, she has modified her show and allowed the backwardness to win out even though if she had been in Malaysia she would have probably been flogged by now for her work.
