Gwen in danger ?

I'm a little late in getting my news but then again sometimes it's better late then never right ?? hahaha this one that was in Friday's star really got my attention and I sometimes do wonder what certain people are thinking when they come up with such outrages claims such as youngsters to enjoy themselves, mix around too freely, get drunk and commit sins. My god this is happening almost every weekend at hotspots around the Klang Valley don't need a Gwen Stefani concert for such things to happen !!!!

Isn't there security checks to ensure that no booze is brought into concerts such as this ? So youngsters nowadays are not suppose to enjoy themselves and mix around too freely and what kind of sins exactly can one commit in a concert with thousands of people around them pushing and shoving each other ?

Sometimes it's music lovers like us who suffer because of misconceptions from authority figures. It's just amazing what some people can come up with.

KUALA LUMPUR: Federal Territory PAS Youth Exco members have handed a memorandum to Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Hakim Borhan calling for the cancellation of Gwen Stefani’s The Sweet Escape 2007 concert next Tuesday.

A five-man team, headed by Kamaruzaman Mohamad, handed the memorandum Friday to KL City Hall Enforcement Inspector Adnan Baba at the City Hall lobby. Adnan passed it on to the Special Officer to the Mayor, Mohd Nazam Harun.

“This concert does not bring any good to Malaysians except invite youngsters to enjoy themselves, mix around too freely, get drunk and commit sins,” he said.

“We want City Hall to be more responsible when giving out licences,” he said.

Asked why they still protested despite Stefani’s promise that she would abide by local guidelines, Kamaruzaman said it was not just about her dressing but her image, which was obscene and would bring down the moral of youths.

Asked if he had seen any of her concerts, he said he had not but had seen her pictures on the Internet and advertisements on television and they were indecent.

Earlier, the team also handed over a memorandum to Maxis Communications Bhd, the parent company of Hotlink, the concert’s presenter.

The National Union of Malaysian Muslim Students also recently protested against Stefani’s concert because of her past record of indecent dressing and obscenity.

Maxis has give an assurance that the show would go on with a promise from Stefani that she would abide by local guidelines, which include “no revealing costumes”.

Stefani, 38, a singer, songwriter and fashion designer, will be performing at Putra Indoor Stadium, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur at 8.30pm.
