Lady Gaga Promoters Sues Over Terrorist Threat

Remember the big flap in Indonesia last summer when Lady Gaga was forced to cancel a concert in Jakarta, Indonesia?  The promoter killed the gig after some pretty robust threats from the Islamic Defenders Front

They were afraid that Gaga would perform in her underwear, so they promised to send 30,000 followers to prevent Gaga from even entering the city.  So much for the show.

Now the promoster is suing the insurers for not covering their losses causes by this “terrorism threat.” Apparently the policy had a clause detailing with terrorism and the insurance company has so far failed to pay up.

The full story at the BBC.
