So no go for Avril Lavigne in Malaysia.
The government there has given the official ax to her concert, claiming the country doesn't want "our people, our teenagers, influenced by [Avril's] performance. We want clean artists, artists that are good role models." Seems that the timing of the concert -- just before Malaysia's independence day -- worked against Avril.
The promoter and Av can request a new date for the concert.
