US pop star Britney Spears will tone down her stage costumes
and risqué dance routines in respect to the UAE’s Muslim culture when she plays
in Abu Dhabi this month, a source said.
The pop princess is the opening act for the emirate’s
Formula 1 after-race concert, headlining a bill that includes Beatles star Paul
McCartney, US band Incubus and British outfit The Cult.
A source close to the star told Arabian Business that Spears
would amend her performance to avoid offending local customs during her Yas
A review of Spears’ Femme Fatal concert tour in British
newspaper the Daily Mail said the American singer wore “skimpy costumes…
showing off her stomach, legs, and as much else as she could get away with.
“The singer bared a great deal of midriff throughout the
show, at one point wearing only a pink sequined bikini top on her upper half,
paired with the briefest of denim hot pants.”
Britney, who has sold more than 100 million records
worldwide with hits such as ‘Baby One More Time’ and ‘Toxic’, is set to play on
Incubus and The Cult will perform in Yas Arena a day later,
before McCartney takes to the stage on the final night on November 13.
Access to the concerts is available to holders of F1 race
Then why bother having her! This is what she is all about.
Strange how she can cover up for the UAE but not for the kids in UK who follow her.
