(Reuters) – Lady Gaga’s cancelled a planned Indonesia concert on Sunday because of security concerns over objections by Islamic groups to her “vulgar” style.

Local promoters Big Daddy Entertainment said on its website that the sold-out June 3 “Born This Way Ball” concert in the capital, Jakarta, was cancelled and that 100 percent refunds would be given to ticket holders.

The U.S. singer, known for her outrageous stunts and provocative costumes, said in a message on Sunday to her 25 million Twitter followers: “We had to cancel the concert in Indonesia. I’m so very sorry to the fans and just as devastated as you if not more. You are everything to me.”
