When the FIFA World Cup officially kicks off next Sunday at 17:00 Swiss time in the Arab desert state of Qatar with stars and a great show, it will not be there on purpose: Dua Lipa (27), a British singer with Kosovar-Albanian roots, will be there clearly he will not sing at the controversial event. The emirate has been heavily criticized for human rights abuses, exploitation, deaths during stadium construction and corruption.

In a post on Instagram, the three-time Grammy winner ended the speculation: “I look forward to visiting Qatar when the country fulfills all the human rights promises it made when it was named as the host of the World Cup.” However, the three-time Grammy winner does not want to boycott the tournament completely. “I’ll be rooting for England from afar,” writes the singer, who is giving up a lot of money by staying away.
