...No, that's just silly

It is silly of the authorities to slap Madonna's concert with an R18 rating and various restrictions on songs.

Anyone who is attending the gig, even religious people, will know what Madonna is all about and will not be offended.

It also would not be fair to Madonna fans in Singapore, who are getting a different concert from other countries in her world tour. Others are getting the full value of their tickets and we are not.
