Beyonce Knowles Less Sexy in Malaysia

Beyonce has vowed to wear “appropriate” clothing for her controversial show in Malaysia.

The “Crazy in Love” singer’s scheduled concert in the country’s capital Kuala Lumpur on October 25 has been met with anger by Islamic extremists, who claim her sexy outfits and provocative stage routines are “immoral” and will corrupt young people.

But the 28-year-old star - who had to pull out of a concert in the country two years ago after the same group, the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, threatened to protest at the show - has agreed to tone down her performance, meaning the concert can go ahead.

“We are confident that the concert will once and for all silence international critics and put Malaysia back on track… in presenting A-list international pop concerts in this region,” a spokesperson for the entertainment company added.

The canine cops will be traveling to New York, where they will strut their stuff in the Big Apple.
