Lady Gaga reminisces on cancelled Jakarta concert in new song
Following the cancellation of her concert in Jakarta, US pop sensation Lady Gaga has decided to express her feelings about the city through a new song called “Partynauseous”.
“I wrote ‘Partynasueous’ about Jakarta, and my relationship with that country. Wishing I could ‘get high with the enemy’ and make peace,” Gaga told her 28 million followers via her official Twitter account, @ladygaga, over the weekend.
The song will appear on rapper Kendrick Lamar’s debut album Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, which is set to be released on Oct. 2.
“Once @kendricklamar and I started talking about life and his forward-thinking views about love and hip-hop, the song became something more,” Gaga said.
Some Indonesian Gaga fans felt “Partynauseous” was dedicated to them.
“@ladygaga, I see that you've been really preparing a surprise for all Little Monsters here. You're so sweet,” wrote @LadyGagaIndo, a Lady Gaga fan-based Twitter account.
In June, the US pop star had to cancel her much-awaited gig in the capital as the police could not ensure her safety following threats from the hard-line religious organization, the Islam Defenders Front (FPI).
The group opposed Lady Gaga because they thought her music promoted Satanic teachings.
The cancellation was a disappointment for the 52,000 ticket-holders and was particularly upsetting for the artist’s loyal fans, known as “Little Monsters”. (yps/swd)
