Jennifer Lopez’s sexually-charged show at the Mawazine music festival in Rabat has disgusted Islamist members of the ruling Justice and Development Party.
Despite the 45-year-old singer toned down the show to make it more discreet, the common format was offered to the Moroccan public, where she changes lots of wardrobe, all of them involving scanty clothing and plenty of skin, Fox News reported.
Communications Minister Mustafa Al-Khalfi of the JDP did not criticize Lopez directly but wrote in his Twitter account that the fact that the show was broadcast by the 2M public TV network, which airs all the Mawazine music festival concerts, was “unacceptable” and “against the law.”
Al-Khalfi added that he had asked the channel’s ethics committee to examine the ethical aspects of broadcasting the concert during primetime.
Another JDP official, Abdessamad Al-Idrissi, also criticized the Mawazine festival, the only such festival in the North African country to feature performers such as Shakira, Rihanna, Ricky Martin and Justin Timberlake.
On his Facebook account, Al-Idrissi said that the festival is “shameful” and attacks the values of the Moroccan people and nation.
