Lana Del Rey cancels Israel show after boycott pressure

JERUSALEM: American singer Lana Del Rey said Friday she was postponing

a performance in Israel after failing to set up a show "in Palestine", reports AFP.

The surprise cancellation came after a campaign by pro-Palestinian groups calling for a cultural boycott of Israel over its occupation of the West Bank.

"It's important to me to perform in both Palestine and Israel and treat all my fans equally," said the artist, who had been scheduled to perform at a September festival in northern Israel.

"Unfortunately it hasn't been possible to line up both visits with such short notice," she wrote on Twitter.

"Therefore I'm postponing my appearance at the Meteor Festival until a time when I can schedule visits for both my Israeli and Palestinian fans."

The 33-year-old, known for her melancholic baroque pop and tales of ill-fated love, had faced pressure from supporters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement seeking to end Israel's occupation of the West Bank.
