Nicki Minaj has been scheduled to perform at Saudia Arabia's 'Jeddah World Festival' this year.

According to the Associated Press, Saudi organizers announced she would be the headline act for the festival which takes place on July 18. The concert, which in line with Saudi laws is alcohol and drug-free, is open to people 16 and older and will take place at the King Abdullah Sports Stadium in the Red Sea city.

The concert will be broadcast globally and covered by MTV and as well as Nicki, performers include British artist Liam Payne and American DJ Steve Aoki. 

While most people are pleased, one woman on social media is outraged by the organizer's decision:

"She's going to go and shake her ass and all her songs are indecent and about sex and shaking ass and then you tell me to wear the abaya," the Saudi woman says in the video. "What the hell?"
