Popstar Lady Gaga is facing further protests on her tour across Asia after religious activists in Indonesia condemned her plans to perform in the country.

The Poker Face hitmaker,who kicked off her Born This Way Ball world tour last month (Apr12) in South Korea,was forced to perform in the face of a demonstration outside her show in Seoul after angering hardliners with her saucy lyrics and raunchy stage costumes,reported Contactmusic.

Gaga,26,is now taking the tour to Indonesia for a gig in Jakarta on June 3 but a hardline Islamic group has warned her today that it would not let Gaga set foot in the country.

“Lady Gaga insults all religions. Even Christians in Korea opposed her. She is promoting the worship of Satan,” a spokesman for the Islamic Defenders’ Front (Fpi) said.
