Malaysian authorities fined organizers of a concert by the Pussycat Dolls for allowing the singers to wear skimpy costumes and for their "sexually suggestive routines."
"The Pussycat Dolls were guilty of performing sexually suggestive routines on stage," council President Mohammad Arif Abdul Rahman said. "In terms of their eye-popping attire, well, there's a lot of proof of that from our sources and the media."
The government in this Southeast Asian nation had previously warned artists not to be too "raunchy" so as not to offend local sensitivities when performing in Malaysia.
Linkin Park performed in 2003- and the Ministry of Culture and Arts warned them not to "wear shorts, scream or exhibit raunchy behavior." In 2004 Mariah Carey was told to "dress accordingly" for her concert.
Mohammad said organizers took advantage of the fact that the council did not send officers to monitor their concert. Are they here? Cool, get dirty!
