Erykah Badu Banned In Malaysia

Singer Erykah Badu has been banned from a performance in Malaysia due to a temporary tattoo that raised the ire of officials. Badu was pictured with the tattoo on her shoulder, which is a tat of the Arabic word for "Allah."
Malaysian Information Minister Rais Yatim states that the picture “triggered public criticism that could jeopardize national security and cause a negative impact to the government’s image.”
Past performers that have been banned in Malaysia include Gwen Stefani and Mariah Carey, but they were targeted for their 'revealing' wardrobes.
