Erykah Badu Concert Canceled Over Her Tattoos

By Tim Rogers |

Erykah Badu was supposed to play Kuala Lumpur today. Doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. Folks in Malaysia don’t cotton to tattoos in general (Islam forbids them), and they especially don’t dig tattoos of the word “Allah,” which Badu has in this publicity photo. You can read more about the dust-up here.

My question: what about fake tattoos? Because, while Badu and I don’t hang out naked together as much as we used to, I’m pretty sure those aren’t real tats.
