For Lady Gaga's Indonesian fans, the show did not go on.

On Saturday in Jakarta, Indonesia, Mother Monster channeled her maternal instincts and weighed her and her Little Monsters' safety over a live performance. For several weeks, members of the religious group Islamic Defenders Front have been protesting the star's concert in their city and promised "chaos" if she did indeed carry on with the show in the Muslim nation.

According to Business Week, they referred to the 26-year-old's dance moves "pornographic," called her a "devil's messenger" and claimed that her image would "destroy the country's morals."

On Saturday, the "You and I" singer took to her Twitter to address the disappointing news with her 52,000 fans who had bought tickets to her sold-out show.

"There is nothing Holy about hatred," she tweeted. "We had to cancel the concert in Indonesia. I'm so very sorry to the fans & just as devastated as you if not more. You are everything to me. I will try to put together something special for you. My love for Indonesia has only grown. #GagaSendsLoveToJakarta and all its people."

This isn't the first bout of unfortunate events that the singer has faced since embarking on her tour overseas. Last month, the South Korean government banned concertgoers under the age of 18 from attending her April 27th show. As she took the stage, Christian groups protested outside the venue, accusing her of being "pornographic" and "promoting homosexuality."
