Beirut - Haifa Wehbe's new music video, "Mish Adra Astanna" (I Can't Wait), has left her huge fan base drooling for more, yet her vocal and conservative critics again accuse her of pornography.
Director Yehya Saade can't get any closer to Haifa's body in a swimming pool shoot of Haifa wearing a skimpy gold bikini. As far as Arabic music videos go, Haifa's sexually enticing video pushes the boundaries of mainstream music artists.
The clip shows scenes that have never before been witnessed in an Arab music video and could be compared more to a sexually enticing film that focuses on indecent moves of seduction.
Critics such as the conservative, Saudi funded, London based Elaph slam Haifa for going overboard with the new clip, saying all the scenes in it signify only one thing - revealing the hidden mysteries of the human body in a very indecent manner, calling it pornographic.
Elaph continued to accuse the other models that took part in the clip of parading their "practically nude" bodies in front of the camera to sell more of her music.
Whatever Haifa does, she typically draws criticism regardless. However she is reportedly working on a children's album with tracks that will include "Wawa" and "Naughty", and was working on changing her sex symbol image. The sexual connotations filled in "Mish Adra Astanna" clearly are not intended for an audience of toddlers.
Haifa critics that label her latest video clip as "porn", also say the music video proves that she willingly shot a pornographic film, charges that she is currently defending herself in court against.
The silly commotion surrounding Haifa's latest video is what comes with the territory of being a seductress celebrity. Haifa should just continue to be the bad girl that made her famous.
