NICKI MINAJ versus Saudi Arabia
Famous rapper Nicki Minaj had her scheduled performance over in Saudi Arabia next week cancelled. She will be citing her support towards the LGBT community.
Nicki's headline had started an outcry from major critics in Saudi Arabia from the country's human rights record. Some are questioning her outfits that are revealing, following that her explicit lyrics are also being questioned.
Lately, Saudi Arabia has been attempting to ease some restrictions on entertainment; this will help to increase encouragement on growth in the arts section. On Friday, the US Human Rights Foundation had sent Minaj a letter, this letter urged her to withdraw from the festival on July 18th.
The letter also wrote to refuse any of the regime's money, also to influence the demand on more female activists. Last week some described the singer's decision to perform in Jeddah as hypocritical, because of the looks she had pulled at gay pride events related to Saudi Arabia.
