Datuk said that there was no interference by his ministry on the matter and that Beyonce, 28, who was scheduled to hold the concert on October 18, had decided to postpone the concert on her own, reports New Straits Times Online.
According to him, there are many possibilities as to why she decided not to perform on the given date, and cited that one of the reasons could be because of pressure from the organisers. He also said her refusal to comply with the dress code or simply because the concert would not be profitable could lead to her postponement.
But he denied rumours that she had been pressured by threats from certain groups after she announced that Malaysia would be one of the venues for her "I AM...World Tour".
Pas Youth was one of the groups, which had declared to take 'further action' over the government's refusal to ban the concert at the National Stadium Bukit Jalil.
