Attempted reconciliation between Haifa Wahbi and Lebanese magazine
The administrations of the Lebanese magazine Allo are attempting to reconcile with Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbi, after the latter filed a lawsuit against the magazine for publishing semi-nude pictures of her. The magazine is hoping to find a settlement with Haifa in court and have all the charges dropped, reported the London based daily, Al Hayat.
A while back, the magazine had published inappropriate photos of Haifa taken without her knowledge. Haifa in turn filed lawsuits against the magazine and photographer and demanded that they be prosecuted for violating her privacy.
On a different note, Haifa is dedicating her time entirely on her new music video, which she will begin filming under the direction of Saeed Al Marouq. Haifa stressed that she wants the new clip to hold a true message that matches the theme of the song “Bidi Eish” (I Want to Live), which is also the title of her latest album.
Haifa revealed that she wants to make a clip that holds a true message after making several in the past that relied mainly on her outer appearance and her femininity. The main message Haifa wants to send across to her audience is that her music is not shallow and holds real meaning and her presence in a music video does not always aim at seduction. She added that the song tells the story of a woman repressed who seeks ways of breaking free to live her life to the fullest.
