Nicki Minaj pulls out of Saudi Arabia concert after backlash

Criticism from human rights groups has compelled Nicki Minaj to pull out of Jeddah World Fest. She recently accepted the opportunity to headline a music festival in Saudi Arabia. Women were not permitted to give public concerts in Saudi Arabia until two years ago; Minaj has pulled out of the July 18 event, citing her commitment to women’s rights, the LGBTQ community, and freedom of expression.

She "pulled out to support women's rights" after the backlash. Sounds sincere and not like a PR move.

What bollox. Was she so dumb she had never heard of Saudi Arabia's track record before signing up in the first place. No, didn't think so. Sanctimonious cow.

Judging by her outfits, she's clearly against objectifying women. /s

so, to fight for women's rights you refuse to perform in an area, that until recently women couldn't perform in? Will someone smack this bitch? That's like Parks riding in the back of the bus and complaining the whole way.

why do I think it more about the fact that she would be forced to wear clothing? no, I am not speaking about a burker, I am talking about pants that don't double as underwear.

Do you think this imbecile even knows where Saudi Arabia is let alone what it stands for?
