Lebanese singer Marwa has denied allegations made against her that she is a seductive singer and attempts to be sexy in order to gain popularity. The singer stressed that she is against seductiveness by nature and what she presents simply extenuates her femininity.


Marwa added that wearing revealing cloths or acting in a certain way in a music video are mere guidelines given by the director and they do not necessarily reflect the nature of the singer. She noted that she does not understand why people criticize her in such a way when all she does is act like a woman, reported the London based daily, Asharq Al Awsat.


Marwa was recently attacked by harsh criticism from the media and the Censorship regarding her manner in her video clips. Resigned Egyptian singer Laila Nazmi, who sung the original songs Marwa remixed, accused Marwa of insulting her songs and disgracefully portraying them and filed a lawsuit demanding she put a stop to the ridicule. Laila was shocked when she first saw the manner in which Marwa was performing her songs turning them into merely music for dancing and loosing their true meaning and quality. 


Marwa has described herself as being stubborn and hardheaded not caring about all the criticism she is facing regarding her singing and inappropriate seductive style in her music videos, in addition to disregarding all the warnings she has received from the censorship committee. The singer has acquired the style of taking old classical songs and remixing them to make them modern. 
Marwa has overlooked all the criticism and made things worse by shooting a new music video in a bar. Marwa has filmed her new video in Jala Studio and made the background look like a bar in the sixties. An European cameraman was brought to ensure that the theme of the clip is well portrayed. The new song “Laleeh” is written by poet Ramzi Al Basyouni and composer Dia’ Ghazawi.
