She received backlash for that event as well. Although the 2014 performance did receive criticism, her Paradise Tour lasted over eighteen months and visited four continents. That was her second concert tour in support of her third extended play, Paradise.
She has recently collaborated with Taylor Swift in the latter’s new album, Midnights with the track, Snow on the Beach.
