Erykah Badu web site goes black
The official web site for neo-soul songstress Erykah Badu has been blanked out or has been unreachable from Malaysia since late last night (Tuesday), after the Malaysian government banned her concert in KL scheduled for tonight.
The web site displays the controversial photograph of Erykah Badu with the tattoo-like body art that includes Arabic calligraphy for the word Allah, displayed on the upper chest.
Her concert was banned after the same publicity photograph was published in the Star on Monday. Editors of the Star were called to the home ministry and the paper has been given seven days to provide a written explanation under threat of suspension or revocation of its publishing licence.
