Nancy Ajram innocent of posing in the nude
Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram has expressed extreme anger towards recent circulating rumors in Egypt regarding the spread of nude photos of her on mobile phones. A large number of youths around Egypt and around the Arab world have been spreading nude photos of the singer supposedly taken at a women's spa for a full body wax.
According to the London based daily, Al Quds Al Arabi, Nancy stressed that jealous and sick individuals are behind the spread of such demeaning photos and she never thought that people would stoop so low as to attempt to hurt her in such a manner.
She added that her only concern in her life has been her career and she thought that if someone from the entertainment world is jealous of her they would strive to present better music not insult her in such manners.
Nancy stated that the photos of her at the spa are mere fabrications and she had never been to such a place, stressing that people are misusing technology to hurt the reputation of singers who have worked hard, such as herself, to reach success.
The singer added that the 'Bluetooth' feature in mobile phone devices has become a threat to Arab female stars, as they are filmed in private situations without their knowledge, or nude pictures of them are created and disbursed to people at the touch of a button.
Nancy's business manager Jiji Lamara confirmed that the video of Nancy was fabricated. He stated that this is not the first time the singer was attacked. Previously an obscene video was created to appear as if the star was taking a shower.
Jiji said that he and Nancy are outraged by the matter, but also see it as "the ridiculous means jealous people resort to just to try and hurt an artist who is successful and loved by millions."
On a similar note, an obscene video of Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbi is also circulating. In the video Haifa appears at restaurant with one of her friends, wearing a very revealing dress. During dinner the singer drops something on the ground and when she bends down to pick it up the straps of her dress break exposing her breasts.
Haifa's managing office announced that "the video was fabricated by sick individuals" and is certainly not authentic.
On a different note, Nancy has just released the music video for the song “Moujaba Moughraba” (Interested and in Love).
The singer intends to release a new version of her popular hit “Ya Tabtab,” featuring a young boy whispering phrases such as “Ya Tabtab” (Love You Nancy) throughout the song.
