Nicki Minaj performing in Saudi Arabia
#1
Saudi-arabia https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-48861071 Saudi-arabia

Nicki Minaj has been announced as a headline act for a music festival in Saudi Arabia, prompting confusion on social media over how her typically revealing outfits and explicit lyrics would go over in the ultra-conservative kingdom.

The rapper will perform at the Jeddah World Fest on 18 July.

The concert is the latest example of the kingdom loosening restrictions on entertainment and encouraging the growth of the arts sector.

"Nicki Minaj" trended on Twitter on Wednesday as people reacted to the announcement.

"Imagine waking up from a three year coma and the first thing you hear is Nicki Minaj [is] opening a musical festival in Saudi Arabia, I'd honestly think I woke up in some parallel universe," one person wrote.



Okay, can one of you guys please confirm that I read this headline correctly? Because it doesn't sound right to me at all :huh: ...

I mean, why would Nicki Minaj want to perform in Saudi Arabia? And why would the Saudis want Nicki Minaj performing within their borders :-/ ???

That is very odd... women don't have any basic rights in Saudi Arabia... dunno why as a woman, you'd feel comfortable enough in the first place.

Yeah, that's what I would have thought :-/ .

I mean, things have improved a bit for Saudi women in recent years (since they've been given the vote, and that ridiculous ban on driving has been scrapped) - but, the overall situation remains horrible. So, I don't understand why any women from Western countries would feel at all comfortable performing there :ermm: ...

Hardly surprising, considering it was one of the most ridiculous announcements I've heard all year -_- !
