Closing the biggest sporting event on Dubai’s calendar and putting a smile on the faces of staff and patients at one of the city’s dedicated children’s hospitals? All in a week’s work for the American pop princess.
Gwen touched down in Dubai to grace the stage at this year’s World Cup, where she delivered a characteristically energetic and dynamic performance, wowing crowds with epic renditions of nostalgic, old-school classics like ‘Don’t Speak’, ‘Rich Girl and ‘Sweet Escape’. Her costumes, in customary Gwen style, brought cheetah print, fishnet, sequins and a head-to-toe silver tracksuit to the Apron Views stage.
Before leaving the UAE, she gave back to the community and added a little sparkle to some lucky children's faces.
The American popstar stopped by at Al Jalila Children's Speciality Hospital, in the Al Jaddaf area of the city, earlier this week.

The Al Jadaf-based hospital shared photos of her visit on Twitter, in which she poses with staff and patients, and in one photo is stood with a gift fit for a young child in hand.

The popstar later took to Twitter to thank the hospital for bringing her in.
A cause that is No Doubt close to her heart, Gwen has lent her support to children’s charities in the past, including Save the Children and Small Steps Project. Most recently, she partnered with Cure for Kids Foundation to donate $1 from every ticket sold for her Las Vegas Residency.
