‘I made the wrong call’: Lorde cancels Tel Aviv show amid criticism


Lorde canceled a tour stop in Tel Aviv amid criticism.
Protesters are urging a boycott on Israel for policies they believe are unjust toward Palestine.
The singer released a statement saying she was overwhelmed with responses from protesters. And after discussions, she decided to cancel the stop.
She was supposed to play in June 2018.

Lorde is no longer stopping in Israel during her recent tour.

The 21-year-old singer canceled her stop in Tel Aviv amid criticism.

“I’ve received an overwhelming number of messages and letters and have had a lot of discussions with people holding many views, and I think the right decision at the time is to cancel the show,” the singer said in a statement as reported by reporter Amy Spiro from the Jerusalem Post.

She continued: “I pride myself on being an informed young citizen, and I have done a lot of reading and sought a lot of opinions before deciding to book a show in Tel Aviv, but I’m not proud to admit I didn’t make the right call on this one.”

She ended the statement with an apology and a hope that she could one day perform in Israel.

“Tel Aviv, It’s been a dream of mine to visit this beautiful part of the world for many years, and I’m truly sorry to reverse my commitment to come play for you,” the statement read. “I hope one day we can all dance.”

China’s economy is projected to be bigger than America’s by 2032

In the year 2032, President Trump’s worst nightmare will come true: China will be better than America.

Well, to be precise, that’s the year the Chinese economy is expected to be larger than the American economy for the first time, per a report from the Centre for Economics and Business (CEBR) Research in London. The CEBR also predicts significant economic growth for India over that period; India will have the third-largest economy by 2032, a decade after it replaces China as the world’s most populous country.

The question of population is key in thinking about what it means for Beijing to helm a larger economy than Washington. China’s population is currently about 1.38 billion, more than four times the United States’ 323 million. Even with a larger aggregate economy, per capita income and standard of living in China will remain significantly lower than in the U.S. for some time.
