Despite the extended campaign to promote Rotana's stars who participated at the Carthage festival in Tunisia like Lebanese singers Haifa Wahbi and Pascal Mashaalani and their seducing looks, people chose to listen to the good voices and not good looks.
In a joint concert between Pascal and Syrian singer Nour Muhanna, Pascal learned a hard lesson. The concert started with Nour Muhanna who made the thousands of fans sing with him until midnight, and then to leave Pascal with a couple of hundred after the fans left the theatre.
Critics think that Pascal learned her lesson to depend on her talent and not on her looks and made her realize not to compete with masters. The singer was very disappointed to learn that many of the expected audience had left and gone home, but despite that fact she attempted to give a memorable performance that did not turn out as she had planned.
Mashaalani is expected to release her latest album in the very near future, which she has been very secretive about fearing piracy. Pascal revealed that her new album will hold some surprises to her fans because she is always careful to offer something new. One song will be filmed in the form of a video clip with director Ahmed Almahdi but still Pascal did not decide if she is going to film it in Lebanon or Egypt.
Pascal added that in her new album she is cooperating with a good group of poets and composers like Ashraf Salem, Ahmed Alfanawi, Tareq Abu Judeh, Mahmoud Khiami, Boudi Na'oum, Mustafa Awad, Hassan Attieh, Munir Abu Assaf, Ihab Abdo, Ahmed Saleem, Anan Mohammed, and Hani Abdul Kareem. The singer stressed that she will appear in a new look for, but without undergoing any plastic surgery, noting that a person can easily look different without having any operations.
Mashaalani revealed that she is going to publicly announce her engagement to her personal hairdresser. Pascal added that what most attracted her to her to be fiancé is the fact that he has a sense of humor and is very sensitive.
Pascal described her new love affair as being a very hot one and that she is very happy to have finally found her match. The singer added that she is the type of person who cannot live without love in her life and will announce her engagement in the very near future. –Albawaba.com
