Malaysia Puts the Kibosh on Pussycat Dolls!

YES!!! This is the best goddamn news I’ve heard all day! From the AP…

Malaysia fines Pussycat Dolls organizers

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Malaysian authorities fined organizers of a concert by the chart-topping Pussycat Dolls for allowing the singers to wear skimpy costumes and for their “sexually suggestive routines,” a news report said Wednesday.
The Subang Jaya Municipal Council fined organizers Absolute Entertainment 10,000 ringgit ($2,714) for flouting decency regulations, the Malay Mail tabloid reported.
The fine came a day after Culture, Arts and Heritage Minister Rais Yatim was quoted in the local media as saying the group took Malaysia “for a ride” by their alleged indecency.
“I believe the way the Pussycat Dolls behaved on stage amounted to gross indecency,” said Rais, according to the paper. “The Pussycat Dolls reportedly put on a show which not only featured scantily-dressed performers but also included sensuous elements,” he said.

YEAH! You tell ‘em, Malaysia! And fine them another 50,000 ringgits because only ONE of them can sing!!

And put on some burqas, for the love of god (Allah).

are you sure they're not actually men?

don't forget they make the only one with real curves cover up too.

They sing? Who knew! I thought they were underwear models. For teen starter bras...

God, it works, too. I have a whole drawerful of teen starter bras now I have no idea what to do with.

I saw them in concert this spring and they are fabulous performers! It was a sexy & fun show.

Are you talking about my bra collection?

Jonathan's sister from Bravo's "Blowout" produces the Pussycat Dolls. He's gonna cry again.

Dontcha wish your country was fascist like me!

Hey, the US resembles that remark, Gomez!

Don't mess with Texas - or was that Don't mess with George's Vacation While Rove Springs Another "Surprise".

Lets look at the big picture. While we Malaysians don't have to put up with talentless bullshit like this it also means we will be getting less foreign artistes who are actually good, now that Big Brother is gonna tighten its rope on the entertainment industry. There's been a dearth of good bands coming in lately... not to mention an indie gig got busted earlier this year, by clueless cops thinking it was a heavy metal concert.

Speaking of facists Gomez, we have lots of them running the government here in Kuala Lumpur.
