While religious fundamentalist, police and large segments of the general public in Jakarta haggle over whether or not Indonesia has the moral resilience to withstand a planned performance by American singing sensation Lady Gaga in June, Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika has risen above the fray, saying he sees no issue with the outlandish performer taking the stage in Bali, providing police officials are confident they could guarantee the safety of the event.

Quoted by the national news agency Antara, Pastika said: "I think it's no problem, if they are willing to follow our regulations. It should not disturb the norms existing in Bali and Indonesia."

The chairman of the Island’s House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali), I Made Arjaya, told the press Bali was ready to welcome Lady Gaga. Adding: "Although it was turned down in Jakarta, it's different in Bali. We are open. Just move the concert to Bali. We are in fact happy because Bali will become more famous."

Speaking practically, Arjaya said, "The visit of Lady Gaga, a singer who is famous among young people throughout the world, will help promote Bali's tourism…we welcome her. The visit of Lady Gaga is purely for the sake of arts. We support her concert on this Island of Gods."

Ni Made Sumiati, a female politician from Bali also hopes Lady Gaga will elect to come Bali. "Bali is dynamic, flexible. There is no problem in holding a concert in Bali. And I am sure it will not affect the morality of Balinese people. So why should we be worried?" Simiati said.
