So-called 'King of Romance', Wael Kfoury, is certainly a ladies man  but fans got a shock last weekend when the X Factor judge turned feminist and appeared at an International Women's Day event in his home country of Lebanon,
The songster told his audience that “a woman is the most precious gift”, while half the Arab world swooned. But the Lebanese heartthrob wasn't the only star to throw his weight behind a good cause.
Wael was joined by one half of the celebrity power couple, Nicole Saba . Nicole is happily married to Yousif al Khal but took the time to tell fans that women have to learn to be self confident and strong regardless of circumstance.
Fellow singers May Hariri and Dominique Hourani also made an appearance  at the event with both sexy songtresses making the point that the Arab world has a long way to go for women's rights.
