The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is notoriously harsh on women and LGBTQ+ individuals. Nicki Minaj would be performing at the Jeddah World Fest in Saudia Arabia a few weeks ago, the star was forced to back out of the show because of heavy backlash. The gap was quickly filled by 50 Cent, Janet Jackson, Chris Brown, Future, and others.
For some people, a big enough bag is enough to change everything. For others, their morals intervene and prevent them from even considering signing the dotted line in the first place. It turns out that the attendees didn’t really need much advance knowledge of the performers because they still managed to sell out the 62,000-seat arena.
