Court takes Ruby off the hook
A Cairo court has cancelled a lawsuit against Egyptian singer Ruby, which was filed by musician Ahmad Al Jabali demanding that all the singer’s entertainment activity must be halted. The court’s decision came after Ahmad and his attorney failed to show up for the hearing and so dropped the case and charges against Ruby.
Al Jabali had demanded 5 million Egyptian pounds in compensation from the singer stressing that she had signed a contract with him in 1997 giving him full rights to all her entertainment activities, and making any other contract signed since that period invalid.
The contract has been automatically extended for five years, based on a condition in the contract that states an extension for five years will be made unless one of the two parties states otherwise. Neither Ruby nor Ahmad had requested otherwise and so the extension occurred giving Ahmad rights to Ruby’s activities until the year 2009.
Ruby finally had her first interview on Mazzika satellite music channel, and surprised her fans with her shallowness. Millions of fans in the Arab world could see Ruby as a naïve reluctant and even closer to stupidity from the way she was answering the questions. The fans were not expecting their star to be cultured or well educated but at least to have a minimum level of common sense of the ability to answer easy and common questions.
Other critics say that Ruby meant to look as a naïve innocent girl to make her fans convinced that she does not mean to be seductive in her video clips. Ruby was asked about her revealing clothes and seductive moves in her video clips and her latest movie and she simply said that she does not mean to seduce any body and after being provoked by her host she said all the people wear revealing clothes why people concentrate on me?!
Ruby said that she has no goal behind her works she only present her songs and wait for the reaction from her fans. About a secret love story between her and director Sherif Sabri Ruby said naively Dr. Sherif is smarter than this!
Ruby was asked if there is anyone she loves in her life and she simply said "I don’t want to answer! The singer also stressed that her dancing in her videos are not intentional but rather due to the mere fact that when the music begins, her body begins to moves unconsciously. –Albawaba.com
