OH GOD!

I travelled to Azerbaijan with friends in 2014, and stayed some days in Baku. This is going to get me emotional

I really couldn't care about the most corrupt (not to mention homophobic) country in the world but yeah, I'm glad she's performing for the F1!

They have been investing A LOT of money on the last years to portray themselves as an European country. That's why there is a F1 race there, as well as the European games last year, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey doing performances, among a lot of new buildings and the boulevard in Baku.
Petrolium lost a lot of value on the market, their money lost a lot of currency value as well, but it looks like they still have loads of money to invest on this.
I cannot argue about corruption and homophobia, but the most? Maybe Top 20. I can think of worst places on Earth. They do try to portray a good image, so I don't blame Mariah for going there. It is not blatantly bad like performing for African dictators. It is a bit less bad

^PORTRAY being the operative word. They're about as genuine as a new Clowntina project. No Muslim country will ever be for equal rights lets be very clear. No matter what glossy PR company they hire.

Exactly...
A country ruled by a mafia family (literally) with lots of money and where they threaten, harass, physically attack, imprison and even kill journalists and homosexuals isn't exactly my definition of trying.

I don't think this is going to hurt her image. It certainly didn't for Gaga when she performed at the opening of the European Games
