Marriage out of the question for Pascal Mashaalani
Lebanese singer Pascal Mashaalani has publicly announced that she has no plans to ever get married and hopes that people would stop creating lies about her saying she got married to a rich Arab man or that she had gotten a divorce. The singer has expressed that she wishes she never gets married so that people would stop making up rumors and let her live with some peace of mind.
According to the London based daily, Al Hayat, Pascal stressed that she is sick and tired of the rumors that have been circulating about her personal life and said she wishes that the marriage train would pass her by so she can concentrate completely on her singing career. She added that she is so in love with life that she does not fear growing old and intends on enjoying every minute as if it were her last even if she was alone.
Pascal noted that she believes fate is behind a person getting married, divorced, or even growing into an old maiden. She revealed that she has a special person in her life, whom she turns to when she is happy or sad and asks advice from regarding different issues, but she added that they have not talked about marriage and the issue is not their main focus at the time. Pascal stressed that when the time is right she and her special someone may announce wedding plans, but for the time being they are enjoying being together and in love.
Mashaalani has proudly announced that she holds no regrets in leaving her previous production company Music Master and joining Rotana Music Production Company. The singer stressed that since she became a part of Rotana, the company has spoiled her in every way possible making sure all her needs are met. Pascal stressed that the best decision she has made throughout her career was joining Rotana, which took her in with open arms. Pascal revealed that no dispute had occurred with Music Master, and her decision to move was made on the best interest of her career path.
During her last visit to Dubai, Mashaalani held extensive negotiations with the head of music Rotana for the possibility of joining their team. The talks between the two sides turned out to be successful with Pascal signing a contract with Rotana and officially joining their long list of singers.
Rotana’s authority over the releases of Pascal will take effect as soon as her current contract with Music Master is over. Music Master is releasing the last album for Pascal this summer and after that Rotana will take over.
Mashaalani is very keen on how she presents herself to her audience and is always careful not to be classified as a performer but rather as a singer who holds enormous talent. Director Salim Turk had previously commented that he feels Pascal is too innocent in her music videos and is not daring enough to try out new techniques that may help increase her popularity. The singer stated in that she prefers to be referred to as innocent and have ladylike manners than acting as a westerner and use seduction and inappropriate body movements in her clips to capture people's attention.
The singer added that she does not find Salim's manner of direction to be suitable to her upbringing or to the entire Arab world's traditions and social ethics. She added that she will not waste any of her valuable time arguing with Salim for she has much more important things to do. - Albawaba.com
