    After controversy surrounding her upcoming show in Saudi Arabia, Nicki Minaj has decided to drop out of the event due to the country's restrictive laws.

    What’s up guys? It’s Drew Dorsey here with Clevver News and Nicki Minaj has officially backed out of Jeddah World Fest in Saudi Arabia and her reasons are VALID!

    Just last week Nicki was revealed as a headliner for the upcoming international music festival, but now she has decided to forego it after better educating herself on their political restrictions.

    Nicki announced the news Tuesday saying quote, “After careful reflection I have decided to no longer move forward with my scheduled concert at Jeddah World Fest. While I want nothing more than to bring my show to fans in Saudi Arabia, after better educating myself on the issues, I believe it is important for me to make clear my support for the rights of women, the LGBTQ community and freedom of expression.”

    Nicki was supposed to perform at the event on July 18th, but groups like the Human Rights Foundation asked Nicki and other artists to pull out in protest of the country's restrictive laws.

    And that’s exactly what she did.

    And in case you don’t know what kind of restrictive laws I’m talking about -- in Saudi Arabia, gender segregation is still a thing and same sex relationships are illegal.

    Women were only recently allowed to drive and attend sporting events, so yeah, they’ve got a long way to go and Nicki obviously doesn’t want to support a place that doesn’t align with her personal views.

    This cancellation is a win for activists who regularly ask artists to boycott Saudi Arabia until their laws change.

    And many fans are supporting Nicki’s decision on Twitter.

    One person wrote quote, “Holy sh*t, I actually respect her for this.”
    And another said quote, “Good move!”
    But others are disappointed that Nicki won’t be visiting Saudi Arabia.
    One fan wrote quote, “Da f*ck we bought the tickets for u !! Why u didn’t talk before??”

    Well my suggestion to you is to get a refund, because you have to respect Nicki for this move! Do you agree with Nicki’s choice to back out of the festival? Let me know your thoughts about Nicki in the comments right down there!

    the laws are not changing wonder why feminists from USA don't want to help women there? it's because those women have stockholm's syndrome and are brainwashed by the patriarchy believing that having limited freedom and opportunities is for their respect and safety Human rights is more important especially female empowerment do not say it otherwise by using Science Philosophy Evidence and Morality in a negative or false way or have irrational views about feminism

    Saudi Arabia you got to respect the laws there if you don't have respect for their laws and you don't need to come there. They don't want no butt naked woman dancing on no stage in front of all the men their losses for biblical they'll never change so you can forget about it Nicki and that's good that she pulled out

    I’m not Saudi yet I live in Saudi. Let me tell you that I’m so, SO thankful that Niki didn’t come here, not that I hate her, but literally Saudi is one of THE most disrespectful countries when it comes to open-minded people, like niki for example. They’re SO damn close-minded. I don’t hate Saudi, I literally live here and have friends here and I love it. But sometimes you gotta face reality. Everyone here wears stuff that covers their WHOLE ENTIRE BODY (And I know that it’s for religious reasons BUT they take it too far. Look at all the other Muslim countries; Egypt for instance, the majority of it are Muslims, yet they don’t take it AS far as saudis.) Anyway Niki did the right thing, but I feel bad for people who bought tickets.

    It’s great that she pulled out because Saudi Arabia’s crown prince MBS murdered jamal khashoggi, imprisoned family members in a hotel because they disagreed with him and started the war in Yaman and so much more, think all of the artist shouldn’t go there

    if your “culture” is gonna be disrespectful to women and LGBTQ folk than don’t be mad that ppl gonna not wanna perform ! or be associated with you sis! the rest of the world is progressing while the saudis living in the past. Nicki had a right to pull out and she did. fans that bought tickets can still go to the show cuz she wasn’t the only artist or they can get a refund. the ppl from saudi rhag are complaining are obviously hurt that nicki not going anymore lmao and they have nobody to blame but their government and themselves

      RSR X2 just have a look in every news agents posts in social media on Nicki Minaj performing in Saudi , chrck all the comment sections , you will see clearly muslims are not happy on MBS inviting minaj to perform in Saudi . Specially in the month of holy pilgrimage of thousands of muslims in mecca and medinah . Not a single muslim want her there because of her hypersexual songs and motive .

    No first of all, the government told her that if she doesn't dress respectably then she shouldn't perform, yes I understand her but she should at least respect our country and its laws, she should know that. There's a lot of barbz here in Saudi Arabia including me, she could've just did what she had to do and performed. Saudi Arabia is beginning to change its laws, it's beginning to open up which is why they did 2030 vision. It's not like before, I'm honestly very happy about it. Also, about the LGBTQ rights, we are living according to our religion and the Quran, we have borders and if she won't respect it then we won't do the same, I mean she performed in UAE and they have the same laws as us but kinda different. I saw a lot of westerns hating on my country and it hurts a lot btw, the media is corrupting us with some fake ass news. Please educate yourselves before you talk. thank you for anyone who read this and understood :)

    I believe you should keep your ideologies where it belongs, don’t force it upon others and other countries. First liberate your own... you don’t know how many ppl in Saudi are relieved to hear that she’s not going. Believe me, as a business person, you’ll never back away from money... she didn’t back out because of her beliefs, she backed out cuz she might get killed. Period. For the many ppl that support her in Saudi, there are many more who either don’t give a shit or opposed her! Don’t blame it Some restrictive laws, she just saved her life. Smart move!

King and Princes Salman shame on you u have been shunned by the people of Lut ,have some self respect and pride for who u are don't pretend to be who u aren't or many people will slap u in the face .
