Handbags at dawn? Amal Hijazi gets catty on TV talk show
Lebanese singer, Amal Hijazi, has never been shy of airing her opinions on screen and her latest appearance on talk show, 'Sorry Bass' was no exception. The controversial star, who had to defend herself from accusations of dirty dancing in a Moroccan mosque, was on air to talk everything from Arab current affairs to her plans for handbag awards.
Speaking to journalists, Raja Naser Ad Din and Rudolph Hilal, Amal said she was 'disgusted' with the current conditions in Lebanon, presumably refering to the recent bombings in Beirut and the spillover from the Syrian war.
The chatty songstress went on say she had avoided releasing albums in order to respect the lives lost in the Arab world at this time. But according to the London based Elaph, Amal's production company, 'Rotana', has filed a lawsuit against her, which is the real reason for album delays.
Amal told the Elaph: “My contract with the company states I must submit one album to them and after I do so I do not know what will happen.”
Despite her career problems, Amal did not hold back from attacking other stars, saying the Murex D'or Awards for singing and acting were a joke. The wayward songstress said she couldn't care less if she was nominated as the awards 'are not based on the artist’s talent and are in most cased paid for by artists.' Instead, Amal recommended that the awards be given to the best shoes and handbags, as they have more talent than the stars wearing them!
