JEDDAH: Pop icon Janet Jackson and rapper 50 Cent are among musicians set to perform in Saudi Arabia, organizers said yesterday, after rapper Nicki Minaj pulled out in a show of support for women's rights. "WOW WOW WOW @50Cent is going to perform live at Jeddah World Fest!" organizers of the Jeddah Season cultural festival said on Twitter. "@JanetJackson is confirmed to perform at Jeddah World Fest! We can't wait to see this incredible icon in Jeddah!" They are to perform alongside British musician Liam Payne and American DJ Steve Aoki as the curtain falls today on the nearly month-long festival in the Red Sea city of western Saudi Arabia. Minaj was to have headlined the concert, but she cancelled in a show of solidarity for women's and gay rights in the ultraconservative kingdom. - AFP
