A rep for Beyonce has set the record straight regarding reports she performed this past weekend for a relative of Kazakhstan’s president.
According to The New York Times rapper Kanye West gave a performance as part of the wedding celebration of the grandson of President Nursultan Nazarbayev. British publication "The Independent" reported that "Human Rights Watch has singled out Kazakhstan for its 'serious and deteriorating human rights situation.'" West has not spoken publicly about the alleged performance.
When reports started surfacing that Beyonce had also performed, the singer's rep explained that there was no way she could have been there as she was headlining husband JAY Z's "Made In America" concert which he hosted with Budweiser in Philadelphia.
"She was in the US as the headliner at the Made In America Festival last Saturday in Philadelphia then spent the weekend in Philly to attend the festival on Sunday," her spokesperson said.
