Justin Bieber was recently pictured performing in Saudi Arabia, despite numerous calls for him to withdraw.
The star performer was seen carrying out a mega performance in the city of Jeddah at the Corniche Circuit on Sunday, despite the major controversy surrounding his appearance, in regards to the country’s human rights practices.
The 27-year-old pop star from Canada wore a red-toned jersey, pairing the look with athletic pants while dancing and singing on stage in front of a crowd that simply couldn’t get enough.
His recent performance is in conjunction with the F1 Grand Prix, where the pop star sang several of his hit numbers including Hold On, Somebody, and Deserve You.
The star’s wife, model Hailey Baldwin was also seen swaying to her partner’s beats in the audience as she clicked plenty of images while enjoying the performance. 25-year-old Baldwin was quick to update her social media status with a post featuring her hubby and the caption ‘Go Baby’ underneath as a means of showing support for the star.
Bieber’s performance was surrounded by plenty of controversies as many requests were put forward to the celeb to withdraw from the star-studded concert.
Other entertainers that will reportedly perform next include Jason Derulo, Tiesto, David Guetta, and A$AP Rocky.
The list of people who urged the Peaches star to cancel his performance included Hatice Cengiz who is the fiancee of late Saudi critic Jamal Khashoggi. The latter was reportedly killed in the month of October 2018 by a series of Saudi agents who carried out the brutal murder in Istambul, Turkey.
Meanwhile, officials from the US Intelligence and Saudi Foreign Ministry were quick to reject those claims as false and baseless, calling them unacceptable in regards to the Kingdom’s leadership.
Cengiz mentioned to Bieber how the cancellation of the concert could pave the way for a great chance to send a powerful message to the world that Justin’s name and talent wouldn’t be used to restore the country’s reputation of a regime that takes away the lives of its own critics.
