    Lady Gaga tweeted about the drama surrounding her canceled Indonesia show and the protested Philippines shows, the latter of which went on as planned.

    She tweeted: "The Jakarta situation is 2-fold: Indonesian authorities demand I censor the show & religious extremist separately, are threatening violence." She then posted: "If the show does go on as scheduled, I will perform the BTWBall alone."

    She also posted: "And don't worry, if I get thrown in jail in Manila, Beyoncé will just bail me out. Sold out night 2 in the Philippines. I love it here!"

    So the Jakarta show looks to remain off but if the permit is restored, she will alter the show. It was canceled despite selling out, due to pressure from Islamist extremists. The Philippines shows were targeted by Christian hardliners, but they went on as scheduled.

    What do you think of Gaga's reactions to the protests?
