Beyonce's upcoming Egypt show branded 'insolent sex party'
Singer/actress Beyonce arrives curbside with her husband Jay-Z for the New York premiere of "Cadillac Records", held at AMC Loews 19 Theatres, Flatiron District in New York City.
Beyonce's show has been branded an "insolent sex party" by Islamic conservatives in Egypt.
The sexy singer is due to perform a concert in a resort south of Cairo on Friday evening and giant posters of the star have been plastered across the city.
Beyonce sports a revealing, flame-covered outfit and grips a set of motorcycle handlebars extending from her hips – a sharp contrast to Cairo streets, where most women wear the traditional Muslim headscarves.
TV ads promoting the show, part of Beyonce's I Am ... world tour, have also been running on Egyptian and Arab satellite stations.
But now Islamic conservatives are up in arms, claming the pop star is threatening the Muslim nation's "social peace and stability".
"Why are you encouraging this insolent sex party?" lawmaker Hamdi Hassan from the opposition Muslim Brotherhood wrote in a letter to the government.
But conservatives have not derailed the concert, scheduled to take place in the luxury Red Sea resort of Port Ghalib.
Beyonce cancelled her stop in Malaysia last month following opposition from a conservative Islamic party.
Malaysia requires female artists to cover up from the shoulders to the knees and bans any showing of cleavage.
