SINGAPORE (AP) — Lady Gaga's manager says the pop diva has no plans to tone down her act, even if that prevents her from performing in some countries on her Asian tour.
The Straits Times newspaper of Singapore reported Friday that Troy Carter said Lady Gaga "plays the show as it is," and that she is not "provocative for the sake of being provocative."

Indonesian police denied a permit for her sold-out show in Jakarta after Islamic hard-liners threatened violence, saying her sexy clothes and dance moves could corrupt youth. They later hinted the planned June 3 show could go on if she tones down the show.
Lady Gaga delivered a cryptic message about the situation this week. She tweeted that if the show went on as scheduled she would perform alone.
