Lady Gaga may go to the ball alone

Lady Gaga is as confused as anyone about whether she will be allowed to perform in Indonesia.

Islamic hard-liners have threatened violence, saying the Bad Romance singer's sexy clothes and provocative dance moves could corrupt youth.

Police initially denied a permit for the Born This Way Ball but are now hinting that the concert could ahead if the pop diva tones down the show.

Gaga tweeted yesterday: "The Jakarta situation is 2-fold: Indonesian authorities demand I censor the show & religious extremist separately, are threatening violence. If the show does go on as scheduled, I will perform the BTWBall alone."

What she meant was not clear, and her promoters have not commented.

Indonesia, a predominantly Muslim nation of 240 million people, was supposed to be the biggest show on Lady Gaga's Asian tour.
