After the singer took heat from critics in Malaysia who claimed her show was too sexual for the Muslim-majority country, she made some adjustments.
She burst onto the stage wearing a black leotard under a white short-sleeved shirt and black-and-white striped hot pants suit, with black gloves up to her elbows.
“I am very inspired tonight,” Stefani told some 7,000 cheering fans at an indoor stadium.
When Stefani announced tour dates in Malaysia, the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party accused her of promoting promiscuity and corrupting the country’s youth and the National Union of Malaysian Muslim Students claimed that her skimpy outfits and cheeky performances clashed with Islamic values.
“I’ve been in the music industry for 20 years and this is the first time that I’m facing opposition from people who have misunderstood me,” she was told an interviewer from a local magazine. “I’m not a bad girl.”
