Nancy Ajram denies being sleazy
Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram has denied allegations that her music videos are sleazy and unethical. The singer stressed that her performance in her videos only reflects feminine characteristics and does not exceed that limit.
According to the London based daily, Al Sharq Al Awsat, Nancy revealed in a press conference she held in Amman Jordan, right before her concert, that her appearance is not the least bit seedy, even though she does appear in more ways than wan attractive and seducing. She added that children imitate her movements on stage, and is she was disrespectful they would not act in that way.
Ajram was able to reach the top of most music charts with her latest song “Ah Wi Nus”. The new song has been witnessing great success and popularity as is the case with all her previous song. Ajram has released a video clip for the main song of the album direction of Lebanese director Nadine Labky.
In the clip, Nancy plays the role of a simple Egyptian village girl who amuses her townspeople by dancing and singing to them. The singer also appears in some of the scenes washing cloths with her bare hands to signify her simple life. Nancy's new album, which features 11 new songs, is as described “exceptional work” by her business manager, Jiji Lamara. Many famous composers and poets participated in the album like Tark Abu Joudeh, Mohammed Raheem, Tarek Madkoor, and others.
Ajram was held as one of the main highlights of the Egyptian Spring Festival Sham Al Nasim, which was sponsored by the Egyptian television network. During the event, a request by an Egyptian parliament member was sent to the Minister of Information to prohibit Egyptian television from airing and sponsoring such events and singers like Nancy, with the justification that Egypt needs to give support to the Iraqi people at the current time and not sponsor such entertaining events.
The argument of the parliament member was that it is very inconsiderate and inappropriate for Egyptian television to preoccupy people with foolish entertainment by singers like Nancy at a time when Iraqi people are suffering at the hands of the American invaders and bloodshed is seen by the hour. It was added that instead of dedicating efforts on covering events in Iraq, Egyptian television is wasting its time broadcasting concerts and foolish nonsense. –Albawaba.com
