Nicki Minaj cancels Saudi Arabia concert following backlash
11 July, 2019, 20:14
"While I want nothing more than to bring my show to fans in Saudi Arabia..." The initiative has been created to reflect Jeddah's history and its potential for holidaymakers, as well as to help change stereotypes about Saudi Arabia in general. "I believe it is important for me to make clear my support for the rights of women, the LGBTQ community and freedom of expression".
Following the cancellation, the HRF commended Minaj for her "inspiring and thoughtful decision" while charging other entertainers still subscribed to the show to follow her lead.
"I am your biggest fan and I was dying just waiting to see you in Jeddah but you disappointed me thank you", a user called Mohammed al7 posted on Twitter.
"I'm exhausted of my fans sending me DM's saying they want to commit suicide", she wrote on Twitter. "It would break me if even one of my fans were arrested, or BEATEN for expressing themselves".
Clapping back in short order, Minaj assured followers that her love for Jamaica knows no bounds. Robert Quirke, chairman of ROQU Media International, the event organizer, explained that Jeddah World Fest is set to become the first global music festival of this scale in Saudi Arabia and has been put together to amaze audiences in Jeddah like never before. "NO disrespect to the Saudi govt". "Voice your opinions here".
"So in touch with your fans that's a real queen", Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams commented. "This is a huge move that you made", one fan wrote. "I stan wholeheartedly", another shared.
Minaj was initially booked to headline the concert on July 18, but backed out to support the human rights struggle in the middle east country, where gender segregation is still enforced in many restaurants and institutions.
