Nicki Minaj Cancels Saudi Arabia Concert After 'Better Educating Herself'

NSFW rapper and human-Barbie hybrid, Nicki Minaj, has pulled out of her proposed gig at Saudi Arabia’s Jeddah Fest this month, after seemingly coming to the realisation that women’s rights, gay rights and freedom of expression trump oil money.

“After careful reflection I have decided to no longer move forward with my scheduled concert at Jeddah World Fest,” a statement made to AP read. “While I want nothing more than to bring my show to fans in Saudi Arabia, after better educating myself on the issues, I believe it is important for me to make clear my support for the rights of women, the LGBTQ community and freedom of expression.”

The Trinidad and Tobago-born New Yorker was scheduled to perform on July 18th, though the announcement raised more than a few eyebrows in the Kingdom. Does anyone have Cardi B's number…?
