4 Times Ahlam made us gasp with horror
Ahlam is one of the most entertaining characters in Arab showbiz. (www.watanserb.com)
Opinionated, loud-mouthed and strangely hilarious? We could only be talking about one diva: Emirati singer Ahlam of course.
This flamboyant character never seizes to amaze us, except for the four times below:
1. That time she called Lebanese people "beggars and falafel vendors": Believe it or not, Ahlam boiled Lebanese people's blood when she referred to them as "nothing more than falafel vendors and beggars," while instructing them to "deal with their ongoing trash problem instead of talking about their 'Queen Ahlam.'" Yep, this actually happened!
2. That time she wore a $1.3 MILLION dress: Say whaaaat? Diamonds are Ahlam's best friend, so much so that she decided to wear a dress made out of rare Graff diamonds. She might have sparkled all night, but she missed the mark with its poor design.
3. That time she ranted like a headless chicken for a bucket of KFC: Anyone watching Arab Idol at the time was crying with tears over Ahlam's hysterical request for a bucket of KFC, which she wanted delivered now now now to the studio or else she would wage a Twitter war against them. What a bucket load of chicken poop that is!
4. That time she wanted to become an Islamic preacher: Should we be referring to the singer as "Sheikha Ahlam" instead of "Queen Ahlam" yet? Last year Ahlam said she will become a preacher when her music career comes to an end. Meanwhile, many are crossing their fingers that day will never come.
