Some members of the LGBTQ+ community felt that Beyonce had “sold out” by playing in a “homophobic dictatorship,” which is a very rare occurrence for the singer.
Beyonce lived up to her nickname “Queen Bey” during her colorful concert in Dubai.
After nearly five years, Bey returned to the stage at the Atlantis The Royal hotel in the United Arab Emirates. The musician was paid a staggering $24 million to perform at the hotel’s opening gala. Many in the crowd used recording devices and posted footage on social media despite the ban.
Bey’s 90-minute performance contained her four biggest hits: “Crazy in Love,” “Naughty Girl,” “Halo,” and “XO.” The performance concluded with a spectacular fireworks display.
However, rumor has it that tracks on her most recent album that express support for the LGBTQ+ community were omitted owing to the country’s anti-LGBTQ+ policies.
Her father told TMZ that his daughter has an extraordinary ability to bring people together… from all walks of life.
Her father said Queen Bey united a really diverse crowd with her incredible performance overseas, bringing people closer, as she does best.
He went on to say people who weren’t at the show might not understand, adding she gave respect and got respect back from the country, calling it an amazing moment.
Mathew Knowles notes his daughter always stood for inclusiveness, and believes everyone was there for love. He adds she’d never do something to deliberately hurt someone.
Mathew said the accusation that she isn’t performing “Renaissance” masterpieces is a restricted view.
