Ban On Kylie!

 

15 July 2002

Australian pop sensation Kylie Minogue is 'too hot' for Malaysia - her music video Live in Sydney has been banned by the Film Censorship Board.

The list of 195 banned titles issued by the board also includes Ally McBeal's Queen Bee, and Friends' The Video Tape and But I'm A Cheerleader episodes, which are available in disc format.

Those convicted of possessing, selling or distributing the films will be fined a minimum of $2000 and a maximum of $15,000 or be jailed for a term not exceeding three years, or both.

A Malaysian government sokesperson said, 'In order for us to instil good morals and values in our people, we have to stop importing films that are not appropriate for our country.'

He said so far local films had not faced any real problems with the censorship board although some films have been approved, 'with a cut or two.'
