Erykah Badu Sad But Not Angry Over Malaysian Ban

Soul singer Erykah Badu said she holds no grudge against Malaysia's government for barring her from performing after a photograph of her body art offended some Muslims.

Her scheduled concert was canceled when Malaysia's information minister announced that it could not proceed because a promotional photo of Badu with the Arabic word for Allah painted on her bare shoulders was "an insult to Islam."
