US pop singer Gwen Stefani compromised with Malaysia’s culture and kept her promise to perform as a “good girl” with no sexy costume in her concert in Malaysia. She disappointed many Malaysians who were expected her sexy look during her performance. However, her performance in the concert still managed to wowed many conservative Malaysians.

Gwen Stefani covered her tight-fitting tops in jackets, and sported leotards under her dresses and mini-skirts during the two-hour Kuala Lumpur leg of her “Sweet Escape” tour.

“I am practically Malaysian,” Stefani told 10,000 screaming fans. “I just want you to know I am very inspired tonight,” she said. “You are a very, very amazing audience.” She waved a miniature Malaysian flag, and said “Terima Kasih” means thank you in Malaysia language. Malaysia’s Independent Day is on August 31.

Early this month, Union of Malaysian Muslim Students protested her concert and said her skin-baring act could erode Islamic values.

Gwen Stefani told a local entertainment magazine that she has never encountered such an opposition to her performances in the past. “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,” Gwen Stefani said. “I’m not a bad girl.”
