Lady Gaga Wants to ‘Get High With’ the FPI in New Song ‘Partynauseous’
Pop diva Lady Gaga still has Indonesia on her mind. Or is that Jakarta?
The popular singer is working on a new song called “Partynauseous” about her ill-fated Jakarta concert. Lady Gaga’s sold-out concert, her first in Indonesia, was cancelled amid protests and threats from hard-line Islamist groups.
“I wrote ‘PARTYNAUSEOUS’ about Jakarta, and my relationship with that country,” Lady Gaga tweeted on Wednesday. “Wishing I could ‘get high with the enemy’ and make peace.”
The Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) — Indonesia’s self-proclaimed morality police — were vocal opponents of the provocative artist’s Jakarta concert. The FPI called Lady Gaga a devil worshiper and claimed that her presence would corrupt the morality of the nation’s youth.
Lady Gaga tweeted a response to her 25 million followers, writing “There is nothing holy about hatred” shortly after her June 3 concert was cancelled.
“Partynauseous” will appear on rising hip hop star Kendrick Lamar’s new album.
“I am so excited to announce that a record I’ve been working on has now become a collaboration with @KendrickLamar for his album,” she said. “Once @kendricklamar + I started talking about life + his forward thinking view about love + hip hop, the song became something more.”
The single will be released on Sept. 6.
Kendrick Lamar’s full album will be released on Oct. 2.
