Beyonce’s Hour Of Shame: ‘Single Ladies’ Singer Hides Face From Cameras After Fans Accuse Her Of Accepting $24M Dubai Gig Money, Putting Profit Before Fans

It seems like singer Beyonce is running away from the media’s spotlight after she was criticized for her show in Dubai. The singer arrived at the Van Nuys Airport on January 26th with her husband, Jay-Z. The singer is usually welcomed with love by all her fans but this time, people were not happy. The two quickly deboarded the plane with their kids and avoided the paparazzi.

She was reportedly criticized for performing in Dubai despite knowing about the UAE’s strict anti-LGBTQ policies. Her fans felt like she prioritized money over her fanbase as she earned $24 million for the performance.

Beyonce was criticized for performing in Dubai


Not everyone was excited to see Beyonce on stage for the first time in five years as she was criticized for performing in Dubai, which is part of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a Middle Eastern country made up of seven regions that follow strict laws and have rules against homosexuality. Despite knowing about the strict laws, the singer performed in the country. It’s quite odd as her latest album, Renaissance, has been celebrated for “honoring black queer culture” and “taking inspiration from LGBT icons.” In the past, she has supported the community a lot but that doesn’t mean she gets a free pass.

 The LGBTQ+ community was not happy

Co-founder of the British advocacy group LGB Alliance, Bev Johnson, claimed that the LBGTQ+ community was deeply hurt and Beyonce’s performance in Dubai “casts a shadow over her support for lesbians and gay people.” This move may have forced many of her fans to turn their backs on her.

A lot of her fans claim that maybe the singer was not thorough with the policies of the country and expect Beyonce to publicly acknowledge the situation. The singer returned to the United States on January 26th with her husband, Jay-Z, and three kids, Rumi, Sir, and Blue Ivy.
