Julia Boutros Banned From Lebanese TV
Lebanese singer Julia Boutros will hold a conference this week to discuss her new project “Ahiba’i” (My Beloved Ones), according to the British daily Elaph.
It will be the first project of its kind in the Arab world. All proceeds will be donated to those who lost loved ones during the Israeli-Lebanese war last summer.
Julia and her family are known for helping those in need.
Julia has stayed away form the media spotlight for some time, especially the Lebanese media. A party that Julia held at ‘Beit El Deen’ was filmed by a Lebanese channel, but was never aired on television. There was an agreement between Julia and the channel to air the party nearly a year later, but the channel never did so.
The reasons for not airing the party remain a mystery. All of the parties held at ‘Beit El Deen’ this year by famous singer like Marsil Khaleefih and Kathem El Saher were televised.
It is unclear whether there is a disagreement between Julia and the Lebanese station.
Away from Lebanese television, there seems to be some tension between Julia and the satellite musical channel ‘Rotana.’ It is not known if her song “Ahiba’i” is the reason behind it.
Julia will be asked to explain the tension between her and the television channels, although the conference might be postponed for security reasons in Lebanon.
