Beyonce plays it low-key when she gets home from her controversial concert in Dubai
After her controversial show in Dubai, Beyonce Knowles and her family have gone back to the United States. On Thursday, January 26, the former member of Destiny’s Child and her husband Jay-Z landed at the Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles.
Bey looked like she was trying to hide her identity when she got off the plane wearing a black zip-up sweater and black sweatpants that matched. She had her hood up over her blonde hair, and it looked like she had a mask on.
Her rapper husband wore a black hoodie and a blue tie-dye bucket hat for comfort, too. The couple flew in with their children. Their 5-year-old son Sir was wearing a green hoodie, and his twin sister Rumi was seen coming down the stairs wearing a pink jacket, blue leggings, and pink Ugg boots.
Beyonce’s oldest daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, and her parents, Matthew Knowles and Tina Lawson, watched her Saturday, January 21, performance at the opening of the Atlantis The Royal hotel.
She brought her daughter Blue Ivy onstage to sing “Brown Skin Girl” with her. She also did a cover of Etta James’ “At Last” before singing “Beautiful Liar,” “Halo,” and “Crazy in Love,” which were some of her biggest hits. It was the first time she had performed live in almost five years.
Bey was praised for her performance, but she was also criticized for doing it in the United Arab Emirates, which has terrible laws against LGBTQIA+ people. Ts Madison defended her by telling TMZ, “Beyonce is a famous singer. Many LGBTQIA people go to Dubai for many different reasons.” She said, “Beyonce actually went there for some of the same reasons. She went to make money there.”
The trans actress said that Beyonce has always been there for the trans community. She said, “Everyone who loves Beyonce and knows Beyonce knows that Beyonce loves the community.” “And not just cares about the neighborhood. She gave her fans and the people she loved a whole album, which is like the best album of the year. So, I thought it meant that she went to get her bag.“
She went on to say that people would do the same thing if they could get paid a lot of money. “But tell me, I want to ask any of those people over there if they got $24 million—I heard it was $35 million—because I want to know if they did. What I heard was that.”
Bey’s father, Matthew, told the same news outlet that Bey’s show in the Middle Eastern country “brought together a really diverse crowd” and brought people together. The 71-year-old man said that his daughter has “always stood for inclusiveness” and would never do anything to “deliberately hurt someone.”
