Snapped: Celebrities spotted in the UAE this week
Because let’s be honest, we all love a bit of celebrity goss…
Dubai is fast becoming the mini-break and stopover favourite for the world’s rich and famous.
With so many A-listers (and B, C and D-listers) visiting the glittering emirate every day, it can be hard to keep track of who was spotted where.
So in case you were wondering who to keep an eye out for at The Dubai Mall, we’ve put together a list of some of the famous faces spotted in Dubai and the UAE this week…
Hollywood legend Tom Cruise made a low-key visit to Dubai this week to visit top media executive Ahmad Al Shaikh. According to Al Shaikh, the pair discussed “the best ways of making the UAE a hotspot and a magnet for global filmmaking”. Exciting!

One of the world’s biggest popstars right now, British-Albanian singer Dua Lipa, made her UAE debut in Abu Dhabi last weekend. We’re pleased to see she managed to squeeze in a visit to the beautiful Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque before the gig.
Former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger showed off her skills at a Pilates class in Dubai this week. The singer said it was her “first” Reformer Pilates class… yeah right, Nicole, stop making the rest of us feel bad!
Nicole was joined by Ladies of London star Caroline Stanbury at the Pure Pilates studio in Barsha Heights. The born and bred Londoner (who reportedly dated Prince Andrew) is now based in Dubai.
American superstar Jason Derulo was in Dubai this week to perform at superclub BASE. The In My Head singer seemed to enjoy his time in the city, sharing this pensive snap with the Burj Al Arab as a backdrop.
It was a big weekend at BASE Dubai, with former B2K lead singer Omarion taking to the stage on Saturday night.
Dubai Jazz Fest returned to the Media City Amphitheatre last weekend. All Of Me singer John Legend performed to an adoring crowd on Thursday night.
Meanwhile Puerto Rican pop king Ricky Martin shook things up on Friday night with hits like Livin Da Vida Loca and She Bangs.
