The world is falling apart at the seams! At the seams I say! (also I’ve run out of puns)
Recently, Alissa attended an event in Egypt for the cellular phone company Voda Phone in which she wear a special red dress the exact same one that Haifa wore in her music video “Boos El Wawa”, which will be released in the very near future.
According to the London based Elaph, this is not the first instance in which the two singers wear the same outfit, showing that their taste in clothing is very close to one another. [source]
I’m so out of touch with Arabic music, in fact I swore I would never listen to it back in 1995, except for the selective few oldies. Which is why I fell to the floor laughing when I read the song name “Boos El Wawa”. But here’s some more interesting news on Haifa…
In a usual press release, Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbi revealed that it will not be out of the ordinary for her to suddenly wear the Islamic headdress Hijab. The singer stressed that she may be inspired to do so at any time, and the matter is all in God’s hands.
According to the London based daily, Al Quds Al Arabi, Haifa stated that she does not understand the big fuss about her making such a step, simply because she presents songs and music videos that have some form of seduction in them. [source]
LOL. Am I the only one who sees the contradiction in that sentence? I mean I don’t care if she does turn all religious but I suddenly got the image of Madonna becoming a nun and making bad music videos on the weekend. It’ll be “Like a Prayer” all over again, and Arabic music will have reached a critical turning point in its timeline: also known as 1989.
Anywho, I just thought it was funny.
