nice local interest story today:

Malaysian band detained after singer's top reveals bare skin

Religious police in Malaysia have detained a Muslim singer and her band, accusing her of baring too much flesh during a recent performance at a nightclub.

Siti Noor Idayu Abd Moin's sleeveless white top exposed a triangle of skin on her back, prompting officials to charge her with "revealing her body" and "promoting vice".

The artist, who plans to contest the allegations, was released on 145 bail and ordered to appear before the sharia court in the northern town of Ipoh early next month. But Noor Idayu, 24, was bemused by the charge that her top was too skimpy and said it was a style she would feel comfortable wearing in public during the day.

It is not the first time that Malaysia's authorities have protected public morals from pop stars. Last year organisers of a concert by the US act Pussycat Dolls were fined for allowing the all-girl band to perform a sexually suggestive routine while wearing revealing outfits.

Lim Kit Siang, head of the opposition Democratic Action party, said the case underlined a narrow, intolerant face of Islam in the mainly Muslim country. "It's going back to the 15th century where we want our women to be covered up," he said. "It's of concern to all Malaysians because it affects the image of the country as a progressive and modern society."

The artist, wearing the white top and long trousers, was detained in the early hours of Wednesday as her band finished its set at Ipoh's Sunway City club. Officers from Perak state's religious department took band members to their offices and held the singer overnight. Noor Idayu said one officer took many pictures of her in the top. She was also accused of drinking alcohol but took a breathalyser test twice and passed each time. She said she felt insulted by the officers' insinuations.

"When I was in the department's headquarters ... my pictures were taken again and again," she told Kuala Lumpur's New Straits Times. "When I asked why they needed so many shots they said: 'It's procedure.' Really? I think I was being singled out."

Speak for yourself, Glaswegian heathen. I would happily eat a truckload of dead rats just to floss my rotten teeth with her pubic hair.

Heathen - Moi?

She has a squinty mouth,accordingly, any load discharged therein would dribble out one side before she got the chance to roll it around and play with it which would be mandatory!

I rest my case!
