Fast & Furious star Tyrese Gibson recently turned heads as he left the United States for the UAE wearing a traditional Kandura, a typical men’s clothing in the GCC, for what he said was “respecting the tradition and culture.”

Gibson is scheduled to attend the Formula 1 races to be held this weekend in Abu Dhabi where other U.S. celebrities like Ludacris and J. Cole are expected to make appearances.

“[There are] a lot of my family and loved ones out there. I wear regular clothes all day so I’m very comfortable,” Gibson told a reporter as he was making his way to his flight.

“Listen, if you have someone says to you ‘in my house we don’t shoes,’ you have a tradition to stick to,” he added.

On Friday, the Formula 1 cars will take to the circuit in the first of two practice. Later tomorrow evening, singer, songwriter and actor Enrique Iglesias will perform at the du Arena.
