Last month, Carey performed in Saudi Arabia amid protests. The singer, who recently released her 15th studio album, Caution, caused outrage among women’s rights groups. The protesters believed that Carey’s performance was a distraction from the human rights atrocities the Saudi Arabian government was committing against its citizens, according to The Blast. Others who have condemned the singer-songwriter claim that the recent surge of American entertainers performing in Saudia Arabia is just to take attention away from the recent death of Saudi critic Jamal Khashoggi. Since his death, a myriad of American celebrities has been criticized over their relationship with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Carey’s reps have a different perspective.
“Presented with the offer to perform for an international and mixed gender audience in Saudi Arabia, Mariah accepted the opportunity as a positive step towards the dissolution of gender segregation,” her reps said. “As the first female international artist to perform in Saudi Arabia, Mariah recognizes the cultural significance of this event and will continue to support global efforts towards equality for all.”
