Beyoncé remains one of the most influential pop stars in music history. She has amassed a huge fan following all over the world, thanks to her consecutive hits and phenomenal music. She also had a massive performance in Dubai recently and it seems her dad made an interesting claim when it came to the backlash surrounding her show.
As previously reported, the legendary singer was $24 million for her concert at Atlantis Dubai. Beyonce’s concert in Dubai stirred outrage from some fans due to the anti-LGTBQ+ laws.
While speaking to TMZ, Beyoncé’s father Mathew Knowles talked about his daughter’s performance in Dubai and defended it. He said that his daughter has incredible power to bring people together.
Knowles stated that she united a really diverse crowd with her incredible performance overseas, bringing people closer. He added that those who were not at the show would not understand, further adding she gave respect and received respect back from the country.
He added that his daughter has always stood for inclusiveness, and believes everyone was there for love. He further added that she would never do something to intentionally hurt someone.
The backlash, which Beyonce faced, centered around some in the LGBTQ+ community feeling she’d “sold out” by performing in a “homophobic dictatorship.” Regardless, the performance was a massive success and that’s all that matters.
