  • Vive déception des fans saoudiens de Nicki Minaj après l'annulation d'un concert

Elle devait initialement être la tête d'affiche du spectacle prévu le 18 juillet.

La rappeuse américaine a renoncé à sa performance prévue le 18 juillet à Djeddah, évoquant "la liberté d'expression".

Nicki Minaj tells @AP she is pulling out of a concert in Saudi Arabia because she says she wants to show support for women's rights, gay rights and freedom of expression.

Un changement de cap apprécié par les représentants de plusieurs associations qui ont salué le geste de Nicki Minaj, tout en pointant du doigt Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez ou encore les Black Eyed Peas, qui ont tous accepté d'aller chanter en Arabie Saoudite.

En octobre, le journaliste saoudien Jamal Khashoggi, critique du pouvoir, a été tué brutalement dans le consulat d'Arabie saoudite à Istanbul par un commando d'agents venus de Ryad. "Afin de mettre fin à toute polémique la concernant, l'interprète " d'Anaconda " a donc officialisé son retrait du festival de Djeddah: " Bien que mon seul souhait soit de présenter mon concert à mes fans saoudiens (mais) après m'être plus renseignée sur toutes ces questions, je pense qu'il est primordial pour moi d'exprimer clairement mon soutien aux droits des femmes, à la communauté LGBTQ et à la liberté d'expression ".

Cette annulation part du fait que l'ONG The Human Rights Foundation avait adressé un message à Nicki Minaj le 05 juillet dernier, l'invitant à annuler ce concert en guise de solidarité envers les homosexuels.

Si le puissant prince héritier Mohammed ben Salmane tente de promouvoir un mouvement de libéralisation dans le royaume -qui se traduit notamment par l'ouverture de nouvelles salles de cinéma et la tenue de concerts ou de grands événements sportifs-, l'Arabie saoudite est régulièrement mise en cause pour sa répression des opposants. Il faut dire qu'en Arabie Saoudite, les femmes sont légalement placées sous le contrôle de leur père, mari, frère ou même fils. Elle se dit néanmoins elle-même féministe, capable de réussir dans le monde très masculin du hip-hop.
