She told the Associated Press she pulled out of her show after "educating" herself on the many "issues" women, the LGBTQ community and other minority groups face in the country. "After careful reflection I have chose to no longer move forward with my scheduled concert at Jeddah World Fest", Minaj said in a statement Tuesday to The Associated Press. "I believe it is important for me to make clear my support for the rights of women, the LGBTQ community and freedom of expression". She's been at the top of her game for so many years and we're excited to see where this next chapter leads her.

"It would break me if even one of my fans were arrested, or BEATEN for expressing themselves", Minaj had tweeted.
"Ummm for the ppl in the back, I wasn't saying Jamaica doesn't have women's rights", she wrote. Jeddah World Fest, which in line with Saudi laws is alcohol and drug-free, is open to people 16 and older and will take place at the King Abdullah Sports Stadium in the Red Sea city. "In April of this year, five men were beheaded by the Saudi government after enduring months of torture and admitting to sexual relations with other men".
