Lady Gaga is planning to ditch her troupe of backing dancers and perform solo in Jakarta, Indonesia next month (Jun12) in a desperate bid to get around a concert ban.
The Poker Face hitmaker is faced with the prospect of axing the 3 June (12) gig on her Born This Way Ball world tour after local police revoked her performance license.
It came amid a storm of protest from hardline Muslim groups, who have branded the star the "devil's messenger" for her raunchy stage routines.
Concert bosses are desperately trying to overturn the ban, and Gaga has now vowed she will take to the stage alone if it helps to calm fears her gig will be too explicit.
In a series of posts on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "The Jakarta situation is 2-fold: Indonesian authorities demand I censor the show & religious extremist (groups) separately... are threatening violence. If the show does go on as scheduled, I will perform the BTWBall alone."
Gaga's comments come just hours after she was given permission to stage a second show in the Philippines since officials ruled her Monday night (21May12) gig complied with decency laws.
In a reference to her prison breakout themed video for Telephone, her collaboration with Beyonce, Gaga told her Twitter fans, "Don't worry, if I get thrown in jail in Manila, Beyonce will just bail me out."
