Dua Lipa shuts down rumors that she will be performing at the World Cup 2022 opening ceremony in Qatar due to human rights on LGBTQ community

Dua Lipa shuts down rumors that she will be performing at the #WorldCup2022 opening ceremony in Qatar:

“I look forward to visiting Qatar when it has fulfilled all the human rights pledges it made when it won the right to host the World Cup.”

Dua Lipa has denied reports she will perform at the World Cup opening ceremony in Qatar.

The chart-topping 27-year-old singer, born in London to parents from Kosovo, said she would only play in the country if it improves its record on human rights.

Controversy has surrounded the upcoming football tournament with Qatar’s treatment of migrant workers and criminalisation of same-sex relationships under the spotlight.

The treatment of the LGBTQ+ community in Qatar has been a cause for concern for supporters hoping to travel to the country to see their side in action.

“I will be cheering England on from afar and I look forward to visiting Qatar when it has fulfilled all the human rights pledges it made when it won the right to host the World Cup.”

BTS star Jung Kook is the only official act confirmed for the opening ceremony, which will be held at Al Bayt stadium on 20 November. US rapper Diplo, DJ Calvin Harris and Jamaican singer Sean Paul will also be performing at the Fifa Fan festival, which will run over the 29 days of the tournament.

Lipa is not the first musician to make a point of avoiding playing concerts in Qatar. On Sunday, Sir Rod Stewart revealed he turned down more than US$1m to play in the country last year.

He told the UK’s Sunday Times newspaper: “I turned it down. It’s not right to go. And the Iranians should be out too for supplying arms [to Russia].”

Qatar’s record on human rights and draconian laws on homosexuality has has led for calls for teams, fans, brands and officials to boycott the tournament which kicks off on 20 November and runs through to 18 December.

To debut today's Bikini Bottom look, Dua took to her IG grid with a 9 (!) part carousel post. In said post, she is wearing said daring look, that also features matching fishnet fingerless opera gloves and a strappy halter neckline. As for her undergarments, Dua wears nothing but an itsy bitsy pink thong to coordinate.

Alluding to the star (see what I did there) of the show, Dua writes in the caption: "down undaaaa in bikini bottom ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️". And as you can probably guess, this look is certainly NSFW...

Just in case you missed it, to make sure that we received the look in all its striking glory, Dua provided us with many 'a posed angle including a close-up look on slide five. As shown, the woven pink fabric also features a glitter fleck detail, which IMO, adds a certain je ne sais quoi to the look. *Chef's kiss*.

As for the beauty side of things, Dua and her MUA, Shelby Smith opted for a confetti-like glitter eye paired with her signature nude lip. But our favourite aspect of the glam has to be those pink star nails created by nail technician Miss Betty Rose. I mean, c'mon... [insert flame emojis here].

Miss Peep, you've outdone yourself once again! (Read More Here).
