Mel C said she’d turn down a World Cup offer from Qatar. David Beckham was criticised for a $10 million deal to be the tournament’s ambassador.
“I’m an ally to the LGBTQ+ community, so I wouldn’t feel comfortable performing that,” she told The Daily Mail’s Richard Eden.
“People want to help make a difference.” “If offered, I’d say no,” said the singer.
Dua Lipa also weighed in on the opening ceremony hoopla, writing on Instagram, “There’s a lot of conjecture that I’ll perform.”
“I won’t perform and have never negotiated to perform.”
“I’ll cheer on England from afar and look forward to seeing Qatar when it fulfils its human rights obligations,” she said.
