The British singer announced that she would not enter Qatar until all promises “to comply with human rights”.
The famous British singer Dua Lipa has denied rumors that she will perform at the opening ceremony of the World Cup in Qatar. JOE writes about it.
Lipa, 27, denied rumors that she would speak at the opening and stated that she would not travel to this country until human rights are respected there.
She wrote on Instagram: “There are now rumors that I will be performing at the opening ceremony of the World Cup in Qatar. I will not be performing and have never been in any negotiations to perform. I will support England from afar and look forward to visiting Qatar when he fulfills all the human rights promises he made when he received the right to host.”
Dua Lipa is currently in Australia as part of her current 10-month Future Nostalgia tour, which will begin next Monday.
So, which of the stars will perform in Qatar is still unknown. Among the favorites are Shakira and K-Pop group BTS.
The World Cup in Qatar is constantly controversial due to violations of LGBT rights, as well as due to the huge number of illegal migrants who work for low wages and live in terrible conditions. A lot of videos from construction sites have been published on the Web, and the football stadium, where the World Cup will be held as well. People were forced to live in inappropriate conditions in 40-degree heat and work in the sun.
Sepp Blatter, the disgraced former head of FIFA, thanks to which the World Cup will be held in Qatar, already admitted this week that this is a decision was wrong.
“This is too small a country. Football and the World Cup are too big for her,” he said.
