Iraqi-Saudi singer Majid Al-Muhandis’ guest appearance on TV talent show “Arab Idol” last week has hit the wrong note with Syrian singer Asala Nasri.

After the warm welcome Al-Muhandis received from the panel of judges on the show, a lack of a similar greeting from a seemingly-tense Nasri has raised many questions. MBC, however, attributed that to the show’s limited time.

Nasri, after her recent appearance on “Arab Idol,” tried to reassure fans, but voice clips and recordings on Snapchat and Instagram suggest otherwise. A recording released by her brother and manager on Instagram shows him making efforts to improve her mood, to which Nasri responds: “Get away from me.”

Several vague comments posted by Nasri on Instagram refer to her little patience when wronged, without the mention of any names. It appears that the singer is not in her best state these days, particularly in light of some unkind comments made by others about her in the industry.

Fellow Syrian singer George Wassouf recently described her as “promiscuous” while artist Rowaida Attiya said Nasri “can no longer be considered among the Syrian people” due to her constantly changing nationalities. Moreover, the lack of attention she received on “Arab Idol” suggests her unfriendly relations with other judges.

Nasri is scheduled to perform this Friday with Egyptian singer Angham in Sharjah.
