    No Thank U: Alanis Cancels Gig

    You oughta know, Alanis Morissette has canceled an upcoming concert in Indonesia amid terrorism fears.

    The Canadian-born songbird was set to perform Sunday in Jakarta. But she nixed the show after a recent bombing, concert promoter Rini Noor told the local television station Metro TV Tuesday, per wire reports.

    On Sept. 9, six days after the U.S. State Department issued a travel advisory warning of possible terror attacks, a suicide bombing outside the Australian embassy killed nine people and injured more than 170.

    That attack prompted Alicia Keys to scuttle her Oct. 5 concert plans in the mostly Muslim nation, and Morissette decided to follow suit. Back in May, following a similar State Department warning, Missy Elliott canceled a date in Jakarta, prompting one local paper to dub her "Wussy Elliott." A month later, Boyz II Men postponed a gig in the Indonesian capital citing similar fears; the date has yet to be rescheduled.

    But not everyone is heeding the advisories. German exports the Scorpions recently rocked Jakarta, and oh-so-sexy aging superstar Julio Iglesias is scheduled to make Indonesian women of all ages swoon Dec. 1 in the capital city.

    Morissette, 30, is touring Asia in support of her latest release, So-Called Chaos. Her Jakarta show has not been rescheduled and there is no word yet on refunds.

    The "Thank U" singer will soon tie the knot with actor Ryan Reynolds, whom she got to know well by flirting with online.
