New controversy surrounding Qatar 2022. The soccer World Cup that is about to start in the Middle Eastern country continues to generate strong rejection from some of the main names in the entertainment industry. Just a few days ago we had the local example of Ibai Llanos, the popular streamer, who refused to travel there to create content and this weekend we have known the forceful response of Dua Lipa.
He has done it through his official Instagram profile where he has published a story in which he makes it clear that his name is not going to be associated with or be present at the biggest football event. One of the loudest and most remarkable rejections by a world-class artist.
“There is currently a lot of speculation and rumors that I will be performing at the opening ceremony of the World Cup in Qatar. I will not be performing nor have I been in any negotiations for it. I will be cheering on England from afar and looking forward to visiting Qatar when I turn all the human rights requirements they promised to abide by when they won the right to hold the tournament,” wrote the London soloist.
In fact, there are those who have wanted to specify and point out Dua Lipa, ensuring that the selection process of the Qatari country has generated even more suspicion. There are even many movements in the networks that ensure that there were economic movements that could not be demonstrated.
However, not all people in the world think in the same way, nor do they see it from the same perspective (it would be boring, on the other hand, if everyone thought the same about everything). Some artists will attend and participate in the inaugural show, assuring that it is the way to try to open the country to the world from within.
That seems to be the case of Jungkook from BTS who has officially confirmed that he will be part of the World Cup opening ceremony and also the soundtrack with his songs: “We are proud to announce that Jung Kook is part of the World Cup soundtrack.” World of Qatar 2022 and who will perform at the opening ceremony of the World Cup. Stay tuned.”
The poster with which Qatar 2022 will kick off the football World Cup has not yet been revealed. It is one of the great secrets to know who will take the stage of the Al Bayt Stadium, perhaps because the organization also fears that the artists that are announced could suffer a boycott by their more activist followers that could condition their decision.
Many rumors point to Shakira, the Black Eyed Peas, J Balvin, Ozuna... names that have already been involved in the realization of previous shows. What is clear is that whatever happens, it will not leave anyone indifferent.
