Lebanese singer Elissa revealed that presently she does not have time for love or any type of intimate relationship. The singer said that as the sole provider for her family, after the death of her father, she has too much responsibility on her hands to make a real commitment.
Although, she still dreams of getting married and having her own family in the future, said Elissa, adding that she hopes to have a daughter.
Elissa recently gave two consecutive concert performances wearing the exact same dress, causing concern amongst her critics that she may be facing a shortage of clothing. The first performance was held two months ago on the Muslim holiday Eid Al Adha in Bahrain and the second on Valentine’s Day in Egypt.
This is the second time Elissa has been criticized for her attire, the first being when she and Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbi appeared in the exact same dress.
On a different note, Elissa is preparing to film the music video for the song “Lao Ta’rafouh” (If You Knew Him) for a second time. The singer previously filmed a clip for the song under the direction of Salim Turk, but was unsatisfied with the outcome.
Elissa requested that production company ‘Rotana’ not air the video for the song stating that it was not up to her standards. Elissa announced that she will no longer work with directors Salim or Saeed Al Marouq after both men publicly criticized the singer and never apologized. The singer revealed that she will be working with a foreign director and is also considering filming a music video for the song “Kirmalak” (For You), written and composed by singer Marwan Kkoury. Elissa is currently holding work sessions to prepare for her upcoming album produced by ‘Rotana,’ to be released in the summer of 2007.
