Gwen to Malaysia: I'm No Bad Girl...
What a sweet and sensitive gal Gwen Stefani is.
So aware is she of the protest from a Muslim students' body, that she is willing to dress accordingly to placate them.
Gwen does not want Malaysia to think that she is a bad girl.
So, the pop star will not wear any revealing costumes when she takes the stage Aug. 21 at Putra Indoor Stadium.
According to the show's sponsor - mobile phone company Maxis Communications, - Gwen "will abide by the Malaysian authorities' guidelines to ensure that her show will not be offensive to local sensitivities."
Now, isn't that sweet and sensitive?
I already like the girl.
As you know, the National Union of Malaysian Muslim Students objected to Gwen's upcoming concert because they find her image too sexy for their liking, calling the video clips promoting her concert "too obscene."
Its president, Mohamad Hilmi Ramli had threatened to ask the authorities to intervene if Maxis didn't cancel the show which is part of her ongoing Sweet Escape world tour.
Now, here's what I call a real "star". I think her response speaks so much of and for her.
Gwen's a class act, showing a lot of respect and regard to whatever that was told to her.
Hey, she could do the pop star diva thing and skip KL. She could tell the organisers to, you know, shove it.
But, the lady has respect and regard for Malaysia and Malaysians, despite the fact that the NUMMS does not represent Malaysia or Malaysians.
More than I can say for those kids who had already painted her smutty and, well, bad.
