Looks like all the Malaysian party people will be missing out on the glitter and paint-soaked insanity that is a Ke$ha concert. 

According to CTV News, Livescape, her concert organizer, received a letter yesterday from Malaysian officials informing them of the official decision to ban the "Tik Tok" singer from performing in the Muslim-majority country.

 Officials claimed the concert would hurt cultural and religious sensitivities.

Tonight's concert at the Kuala Lumpur stadium was then canceled. And according to Ke$ha, it was canceled under the threat of imprisonment if she decided that the party must go on. This is what she had to say:

Then she plugged the upcoming second season of her reality TV show, "My Crazy Beautiful Life." Because, why not?

As for Livescape, they weren't thrilled either. In a statement they explained that they had already agreed to implement some modifications for the Malaysian leg of the tour to comply with the government's general guidelines for performers. Changes included altered song lyrics and wardrobe.

They added that they are losing more than $350,000 due to the government's last minute decision and suggested that higher-ups in Malaysia "engage in a productive dialogue" with concert promoters in the future to avoid such things. 

Seeing as Ke$ha IS a walking, talking party, it's difficult to understand why it took the Malaysian government a month to make their decision.

Anyways, the Malaysian government should watch out. Ke$ha can troll like no other!
