Just a few days ago, Nicki Minaj had announced that she would perform in Saudi Arabia.
Many Muslims were extremely outraged, as Saudi Arabia is supposed to be a holy country and they did not approve of having a concert there.
However, something shocking happened recently.
All of a sudden, Nicki refused to perform in Saudi Arabia.
When asked what the reason was, she revealed that her performing there was against her values, as Saudi Arabia is really insensitive regarding women and the LGBTQ+ community.
Famous singers like Liam Payne, etc. will still perform there.
However, Nicki won’t be there.
The atmosphere of Saudi Arabia is pretty strict, as men and women are still segregated everywhere and have witnessed clear gender-based discrimination.
However, a lot of rules are set to ease for women, like driving a car or attending a sports stadium.
But it still hasn’t completely reached there, and the issue of discrimination and extremism is still very much there.
