Lebanon and the Arab world have not forgotten about that famous feud between Emirati singer Ahlam and Lebanese TV host Adel Karam.
The flamboyant singer boiled Lebanese people's blood when she referred to them as "nothing more than falafel vendors and beggars," while instructing them to "deal with their ongoing trash problem instead of talking about their "Queen Ahlam." Yep, this actualy happened!
Since then, the two haven't seen eye to eye (shocker) and several trending hashtags on Twitter urged Lebanon not to allow Ahlam on its soil.
However, looks like their numerous attempts to keep the "Queen" out of Lebanon have gone down the drain.
Miss Controversy is set to return to Beirut in the near future to resume filming the singing talent competition Arab Idol, where she sits (not quietly of course) on the judging panel next to Lebanese stars Nancy Ajram and Wael Kfoury, and Egyptian music producer Hassan el Shafei.
How will Lebanon react now? Will Ahlam be greeted with an angry crowd at Beirut International Airport, or will the patriotic Lebanese forgive and forget?
