Indonesia deems Ed Sheeran pornographic

Indonesia deems Ed Sheeran pornographic
Ed Sheeran gets a lot of stick, but we like him…and even if you dislike the man and his music, surely even you must raise eyebrow at our headline. Yes, the strict Indonesian government has issued a list of songs deemed pornographic and immoral, and are restricting their play to the night time. The Ed in question is Shape of You.
Other songs which broke the rules include The Killers with Mr Brightside (bit late to the party this one), the easier to understand ‘Fuck It, Don’t Want You Back’, and Your Song.
How the bloody hell is Your Song on this? Here’s an official quote: “In this case, what is banned is not the songs, but the lyrics of the songs that contain pornography, pornographic association, and obscenity,” said a government officer.
