The GARRANCE REGGAE FESTIVAL in Paris has been cancelled after of a flood of complaints about singer Sizzla's anti-gay lyrics.

The festival, which was due to take place on Saturday (02JUL05), was called off because of "risk of public disorder", event organisers say.

French gay rights groups complain Sizzla's lyrics incite violence towards homosexuals after OutRage, a British gay rights group, translated Jamaican patois lyrics from Sizzla's PUMP UP song as, "Burn the men who have sex with men."

The singer, real name MIGUEL COLLINS, defends his lyrics with his religious beliefs.

He argues, "They can't ask me to apologise. They've got to apologise to God because they break God's law."
