Dua Lipa rubbishes reports she will perform at the inaugural World Cup in Qatar

Dua Lipa has denied reports that she will perform at the opening ceremony of the World Cup in Qatar.

The chart-topping 27-year-old singer, born in London to parents from Kosovo, said she would play football in the country if it improved its record on human rights.

Controversy has surrounded the football league over Qatar’s treatment of migrant workers and the criminalization of same-sex relationships in the limelight.

Following reports linking her to the event, Lipa shared a statement on Instagram, writing: “There is a lot of speculation right now that I will be performing at the opening ceremony of the World Cup in Qatar.

I will be cheering on England from afar and I look forward to visiting Qatar when it has fulfilled all its human rights commitments when it won the right to host the World Cup.Dua Lipa

“I will not perform and have not entered into any negotiations to perform.

“I will be cheering for England from afar and I look forward to visiting Qatar when it has fulfilled all its human rights commitments when it won the right to host the World Cup.

“One love, Dua.”

The treatment of the LGBTQ+ community in Qatar is a cause for concern for supporters hoping to come to the country to see their faction in action.

Lipa is not the first musician to make a point of avoiding concerts there.

Sir Rod Stewart recently revealed that he turned down over a million dollars to play in the country last year.

He told the Sunday Times: “I turned it down. It’s not right to go. And the Iranians should also stop supplying weapons.”
