Uganda Might Ban BeyoncéS

Beyoncé is probably too busy being hated for travelling to Cuba with her husband (what's his name again?) to notice that her image, and the image of any other sex symbols, may be banned for good in Uganda.

The Ugandan government is currently considering instituting anti-pornography laws that would ban anything deemed inappropriate by its Ethics and Integrity Minister. And that's a lot of things.

"Any attire which exposes intimate parts of the human body, especially areas that are of erotic function, are outlawed," Minister Simon Lokodo was quoted saying in the Daily Mail. "Anything above the knee is outlawed. If a woman wears a miniskirt, we will arrest her."

In addition to arresting women for wearing "provocative" clothing, the bill could also mean anyone who shares or watches music videos featuring scantily-clad women could face up to 10 years in prison, or a fine of almost $4,000.

But, in slightly promising news, the proposed bill ran into trouble in parliament. It will have to clear the country's Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee, which thinks its definition of pornography is too broad.
