Best performance of Arab Got Talent



I missed the 1st episode of the new season, but this has got to be the best performance of the night.  A lot of people praised the Kuwaiti dance group “Back Stage Group”, but IMO this one legged dancer is a lot better than them.

The Premier League is pleased to announce that Al Jazeera Sport has been awarded the exclusive broadcasting rights in Middle East North Africa for all 380 Barclays Premier League matches per season for the seasons 2013/14-2015/16 [via PL].

Hard Luck Abu Dhabi. I wonder if the present AD commentators will change jobs as well with the lose of the PL rights.

Official call for Jihad in Syria تجهيز غزاة للكفاح في سوريا

Kuwaiti Islamists call for fighters to Syria

This is beyond outrageous. Since when do we approve and seek the arming of citizens of other countries. Who’s to say your point of view is the best for theو? Who’s to say that the money sent will really be used to fight oppression and injustice and for defending the innocent? Don’t you think there are official, local and international, organizations more equipped to handle a dangerous assignment like this?

What worries me most is the possibility of innocent and naive Kuwaitis foolishly volunteering their own lives for a “Holy” campaign like this. Many immature Islamist extremist will let their emotions role high with such a holy call. How can they resist it, when they see a lot of the most popular Islamic leaders and politicians approve such a crazy campaign?

I’m not sure how this call for arms is not illegal in Kuwait. In fact I’m pretty sure it is illegal. I will leave you with a quote from my cousin, she summarized it in the most amazing way:

يبون يقصون على الشباب يودونهم يموتون هناك و هم الشيوخ دق عيوش بالكويت

Bravo A7lam رد أحلام على تعليق راغب علامة في فيروز



I had actually caught this segment live on TV tonight. I had MBC1 on for like 2 minutes, and by pure coincidence they were those exact two. I didn’t get the impression that Ragheb was being disrespectful to God or that he meant God couldn’t create another Fairouz. He was just praising Fairouz and meant her unique talent won’t be duplicated, as in her talent is unique and one of a kind. Just some strong words of praise, that’s all.

However, a lot of people do think he was out of line and that he did mean to trivialize God and his mighty powers. They think he meant God didn’t have the power to make another Fairouz, which is just silly and ridiculous. But for them, I say Bravo A7lam. I’m a huge fan of hers in Arab Idol, so her quick wit and strong clear reply didn’t surprise me at all. She immediately cut him off and properly replied to his comment saying “Yes, God can create anything”.

Official: Janet Jackson married Qatari Wissam Al-Mana

Janet Jackson Qatari Wissam Al-Mana got married

Janet Jackson married her Qatari boyfriend Wissam Al-Mana in a secret ceremony last year. ET reports this short statement from the secretly married couple:

“The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony. Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet”.

Janet has a fancy for secret weddings. The last time she did that, no one knew of it till she got divorced 9 years later.

The couple have been dating for a while now, you can check their pics [here], [here], and [here]. There was some talk last month of Janet perhaps getting a half billion pre-nup if they ever divorced.

Congratulations to the happy couple, and kudus to Mrs. jackson for getting Wissam to marry her. Let that power and respect spread to other couples in our region, may they too make honest men and women out of their dating partners. Let them put a stop to the love them and leave them scenarios.

Seriously, congrats to the new couple.

Btw, this pic is their official wedding photo.

Behind the scenes at Kim Kardashian’s Hia magazine cover shoot

Kim Kardashian Hiya arabic magazine cover



Kim Kardashian graces the latest cover of Hia magazine, a leading Arabic publication. Hia posted this behind-the-scenes video footage of Kim’s photo shoot. They’re basically promoting her as the “Arabian Bride” or something similar.

The theme of the shoot is a veiled and hair covered Kim, with an overly exposed cleavage. If you’re easily offended by this kind of do-up, then you might want to skip the vid and just look at the more tame magazine cover.

Here’s a quote from Kim regarding the shoot:

I’m excited to share my cover of Hia Magazine! Hia is the leading luxury lifestyle magazine for Arab woman and I’m honored to be on the cover. This shoot was so different from any I have done before and I’m so pleased with how the cover turned out.  I got to wear some incredible high glamour creations by grand couturier Stéphane Rolland!
