Katy Perry rocks headscarf in LA gig

JEDDAH: Pop star Katy Perry rocked a headscarf as she performed at the Staples Center on Wednesday in Los Angeles — part of a promotional tour of her latest album “Witness.”
The “Roar” singer donned a sheer red jumpsuit which featured an elaborate head scarf during a performance that otherwise saw her wear a number of bold outfits.
Perry also wore a sparkling silver ball gown with a thigh-high slash that she teamed with a matching headdress.
The show was the first of three hometown dates for the California-born chart-smasher, as she takes her Witness world tour across the US.
Expected to end in August next year, Perry embarked on this leg of the US tour on Sept. 7 with a performance in Columbus, Ohio.
Her new album “Witness” includes songs that touch upon the changes around Perry and her life. The released singles from the album include “Chained to the Rhythm” starring Skip Marley and “Bon Appétit” that features Migos.
Headscarves or hijabs have lately become a fashion accessory, and mainstream brands in the West such as H&M, Tommy Hilfiger and DKNY have launched modest-wear collections featuring headscarves for stylish Muslim women.

Oman’s Religious Affairs Ministry says second wife rule claim was ‘fake news’

DUBAI: Oman’s Religious Affairs Ministry said reports of a decision allegedly forcing local men to wed multiple wives to boost the population were “fake news,” local daily Times of Oman reported.
False claims spread on social media in a post that read, “Due to the lack of population growth, the Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs decided [that] every man must marry at least two women and the state will support them monetarily,” the report added.
“A woman who tries to prevent her husband [from getting married again will face] a penalty set by the ‘Department of Women Preaching and Guidance’ in the Ministry,” it added.
But the Religious Affairs Ministry dispelled the rumors, and issued a statement which stated: “Referring to the rumor that is being circulated, the Ministry would like to point out that this decision has not been issued by the Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs and that they will take legal action against [the person who started] rumor.”
