    And because I’m an Indonesian I’d like to ask you 3 questions, some of it in Indonesian.

    Come on, do you even Anggun reads this, for real?

    Hiya Guys,
    why this forum turned to be a place for people to argue each other. That’s what happened if we mixed art, music and culture. I don’t think it’s right to mention somebody in disgusting way. Look, we are all Indonesian, we should have supported Anggun AND we, those who like her musics, are NOT supposed to argue each other.
    Everybody are entitled to their opinions.
    I’d like to say To Mohammed Khafi Very good English! I like the way you wrote it. Potterfield, good thinking of saying. Fortunately, there are artists like Anggun to change the world with their manner. So Inge. Nothing to argue about religions cause it will only lead to fights. Inge, everybody has their different ideas but it’s all up to Anggun whatever she wants to do. I have Christian parents in law but we never argued anything about religion since we respect what we believe. You know Inge, whatever critics people put on here it’s merely because those people love Anggun. Nobody knows whether she read this or NOT. I don’t think Anggun ,if she ever read this, will get offended because I said topless photograph was not right. I believe she know about ‘people are entitled to their opinions’. I will answer inge’s question if anybody Or may be Hasan.

    Inge said..whether anybody had any chance to travel overseas ….I did! In fact I am currently living in Thailand and I lived in Uk before Thailand. It doesn’t mean if live in other country we have to be like them. It’s nice to be in another country with our own culture and tradition. Some of my thai friends admired of what I brought from Indonesia things, the way of living etc as well as in England. So I don’t think Hasan needs to move to Arab country cause you still can live in Indonesia with your way of thoughts. You can be tolerant or intolerant person to quote what Potterfield said.

    And it’s all up to Anggun what she wants to be and what she wants to do.

    Keep singing beautiful songs with your beautiful voice, ANGGUN!

    Hi there, love Anggun’s music by the way. Really makes her fellow countrymen/woman proud.

    While we’re at it, I don’t really think the whole “I WANNA LOOK LIKE ANYTHING I WANNA LOOK LIKE” thing should be given too much attention, yes, enough attention to actually “CONSTRICT” it.

    Let your friend wear anything they want to wear. If someone has a beautiful hair, and wants to show it, THEN SHOW IT !!! Not everyone has nice hair, it should be considered a blessing to have it.

    Then something terrible happens, raped for example. Instead of calming her, hypocrites from all around the nation blame her for what has happened to her. WHAT ?? What did that girl do ?? She was only trying to EXPRESS HERSELF !!!

    Then whose fault is it ?? The dude with the DIRTY MIND.

    That’s what we need, a good, strong, deep, morale education for the young. Not some “EVERYONE HAS TO WEAR VEILS” bill that applies to whole nation !!!

    With decent knowledge of feminime dignity and religion, one wouldn’t go to mall in a G-String, right ?? Or rape the first lady one sees in sight ?? NO!

    There’s absolutly NOTHING WRONG with that long black hair/lean bod/long legs/ARROUSING smile. WHAT’S WRONG IS IN YOUR MIND, buddy !!

    Hello semua,
    Apa khabar?

    I’m Shaiful from Malaysia and I am one of Anggun’s die-hard fan (kalo di Malaysia dibilang kipas susah mati :p)! I’ve listened to her songs since 14 starting with Neige au Sahara that my friend accidentally bought for me on his trip to Paris. She has this haunting voice that you can’t find on any Malaysian artist.

    To me Anggun epitomizes the modern Asian woman – well-traveled, diverse in knowledge and stay true to herself and her culture. I truly dislike Malaysian artists except for Camelia and Ning Baizura because they are afraid to open up like Anggun. I mean apart from getting half-naked on the magazine that is :D

    If only Malaysian artists could be just like Anggun then dominating the world music chart won’t be a problem. And sorry to say this, like Anggun, I also believe that the Anti-Porn law thing is simply sucks!

    I do not agree with you Anggun, I like most of your songs though. If we open our body it does not mean that we are not frustated. Being modern mowen it’s not always show your shiny leg, amazing body etc but more what you have in your mind. I am moslem and cover my body, still I am modern women in America. I am proud to be moslem-Indonesian American. So it does not mean if we cover our body we are frustated or closed-minded or whatever you call it. I cover my body ‘coz I know why I do it, I know where I am going to and to whom I am back.

    Everybody has right to speak out here. So please don’t shut them down. It’s absolutely true, that faith is only between you and GOD. None of your business.
    And faith is something that can’t be forced to someone else’s mind. So, don’t waste your time arguing over this matter.

    One thing that i believe, everybody likes Anggun! She has the quality and it says all.

    Cheers!

    Hi there everybody :D

    I like what Anggun’s said in her In Your Minds Lyrics, like it very much so I take this song for my subjects / theses in my bachelor degrees about gender representation in this song. :)

    The lyrics strike me because its like a “sindiran” or we can say “wake up call” (cmiiw) for me to realize that its more than just “long hair, nice body n etc” in a women.

    The main point I think its Anggun its practicing her freedom of speech

    Respect other people, so they can respect you. :D

    I like her way of thinking, she’s inspire me and some of my friend. :D

    Hi Anggun,
    I like your songs very much. You are so talented!
    I think your decision to stay in France is exactly right, because if you want to develop your career the best way is going to another country. First reason is Indonesia will proud of you. Second reason is Indonesia has too many rules that “block” you, it must be so hard for you. I read about your experience in Kick Andy. I think you choose a good decision to leave Indonesia, although it must be so hard for you to leave your family too. Success always for your career, and if you have time to reply me, please send me the lyrics of your new song. Thanks a lot.

    So nice to read of a cultured, intelligent Indonesian woman who doesn’t have to “show off” by adopting the jilbab or trying to show her Muslim-ness.
    Maybe the freedom in France that you don’t have to pretend to be religious may be a reason.

    Bahrain, Uni Emirates Arab and Qatar are examples of the modern Arabs, they are tolerant and open for new ideas and new peoples and even applied much more western aspects in their culture another aspect of life,

    This is a great point – while so many Malaysians and Indonesians have a complex where they try to “be Arab”, the Arabs themselves are so comfortable with Islam and more accepting of the West.

    Dear Anggun and people of Indonesia…

    I am Indonesian and live in St.Maarten Netherlands Antiless.
    I love Indonesia and I am happy if Indonesia does well. I am a Hindu and since I am here i wear cleavage so often and it is just that I like it. When I go back to Bali, I dont wear it as appealing as it is here. I believe in time, place, and situation.
    I do not have to be that strict, coz as long as I sleep with one guy and I live properly, I do not think it is ashame to wear cleavage as an Indonesian. So if Anggun is in France and sexy, it is because of her needs as an entertainer. She has to attract people and that helps. French people like it and that is all about it. She is still Indonesian no matter what, and do not bring religion in this case coz she is doing fine. A lot more women with those scarfs do wrong things behind the scene. So stop being very hypocrite and support Anggun. As long as she behaves properly not mainly for the dress wise, be supportive, Indonesian people are too much critisizing. And we are democratic country not based on one religion.

    I read in the paper recently that she’s going on tour again here in Indonesia but when I rang the ticket agents, they’d no tickets and in fact no idea when the tour was to happen.
    Anybody out there know?

    Thanks for the bad news, Patung, and may I say I’m glad you are still alive and kicking… everything seemed to grind to a halt as far as new topics were concerned, just about the first week in June.

    I already visit some countries from all over the world. Even in Arab self, the woman has freedom “to” or “not to” wear a cover. So i agree with Anggun, this country more need to fix shitt corrupt than trying to make this underpressure RUU.
    I am surprising that u had performanced in Vatican, how was it? i though u convert religion. And few days ago i saw u in a fashion show in FashionTV, u look shiny! I am proud of u! I think Indonesian singer not hv to be “Siti Nur***nyet” hehehe………just be your self! But dont be too westernised! v(^_^)

    I think Anggun is a wonderful person. Not only she is very down to earth and unpretentious but also very open minded. I am pleasently surprised that her dad sent her to a Catholic school. (I admire her dad for allowing her to see a more colorful side of life). That says a lot to me about her and her family. Anggun, you had a great upbringing. I personally think Anggun sets many good examples to the younger generation in Indonesia. I also think it doesn’t matter what your beliefs are, but please don’t use them as your reasons for not moving forward to achieve your goals in your lifetime. This is why I support very much what Anggun is saying or doing to achieve her success. I also want to say that one can’t really judge a person based on the pictures he/she takes, the clothes he/she wear, or the friends he/she has. It has to base on his/her heart. And who can be the judge for that? Not YOU, Not Me, Not anybody BUT GOD. Thank you.

    anggun congratulation for your excellence achievement, but with your statement, i think it’s very wise to understanding about the culture in each country must be different and as a person who has believe and faith…. i guess we should know that we should accomplish our religion completely…..no matter if you are christian, buddhist, moslem, jewish….each religion has their rule ….. i guess we should tolerate it….. so with all respect did you understand and know exactly your own religion?

    She was magical and mystique when she sang Snow on Sahara . Her movement and grace is so tantalizing , she has mesmerized me for good .

    A true quality Javanise blood line as it can be seen in her mannerism and at an unpluged level ,very adventurous , very strong willed , very compasionate and great to be with for sure .

    Hidup berlayang layang dan melayar layar
    Mengembara mencari kepuasan
    Tasik hati selalu mencari kepuasan
    Itu ada lah hidup yang penuh

    The above poem is a gift to Anggun .

    I am your for ever fan from KL

    From what I have seen Anggun in Eurovision she is very talented and sexy. I am surprised she claims she is Muslim and she is Indonesian. If you do not behave like one, you probably are not. Its obvious she could not live in Indonesia, without someone raising an issue about her western lifestyle. It also like saying Obama is an Indonesian or a Kenyan. But no he is an American. And Anggun is a Frenchie like it or not with French not Indonesian values.
