Elaine Khalaf chooses Caroline Libky over Salim Turk
Lebanese singer Elaine Khalaf has revealed that she chose Lebanese director Caroline Libky to direct her upcoming music video “Bardo Sudfeh” instead of director Salim Turk, whom she had been used to working with in the past. Elaine stressed that the change was a must, especially due to the fact that she had been away from the scenes for quiet some time.
According to the London based daily, Al Sharq Al Awsat, the singer revealed that the clip is a semi shift in the style people have come accustomed to seeing her in and that she underwent a complete change of looks. Elaine’s new album is scheduled for release by the end of the current month under the production of Alam El Phan Production Company.
Khalaf is planning on making a strong comeback with her album “Bardo Sudfeh” (Accidentally). The album features ten songs varying between the Lebanese and Egyptian accents, and the singer has overlooked the thought of releasing a single, wanting to focus on the album as a whole. Elaine has cooperated with numerous poets and composers some of who are new to the scenes, because she feels that they always have new ideas and styles to present, wanting to ensure that her album is of the highest standards.
Recently, Elaine made a shocking revelation that she was involved in a love affair with Jiji Lamara, Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram’s business manager, but ended breaking up with him after he had refused her wishes to get married. Elaine had insisted that they must marry after being together for ten years.
Elaine added that when she made her request to Jiji he had refused it, but once she became famous he asked for her hand and she rejected him. The singer added that she and Jiji were in love the entire time when he was her business manager and once they broke up she moved on to Alam El Phan production company cutting off all contacts with him.
Elaine also revealed that Jiji was her first love and her experience with him taught her that she must take extra caution in whom she loves. She added that she is very happy in her life despite her loss and despite what many may thinks, and her only goal at the moment is gaining more in her music career.
