Here's a cocktail of short news from here and there!
Nicole Saba, who is pregnant with her first child with hubby Youssef Al Khal, posted a photo of herself performing at the opening of the Cairo Festival yesterday.
She's seen wearing a wide black dress, that clearly hides a baby bump!
Najwa Karam has announced that she's participating the annual Mawazine festival in Morocco this year.
She's currently very busy working on her latest album. She's just finished recording a single, which is written by Nizar Francis, but will not reveal its name, because it may be the title of her upcoming album!
Ragheb Alamah has decided to postpone his scheduled trip to Tunisia.
Alamah said that his concert in Sousse will be postponed to an indefinite date, because of the current political situation in Tunisia.
On the other hand, Alamah will be hosting a Valentines Day concert at the Abu dhabi Country Club.
Shireen Abdel Wahab is still not 100% divorced!
She revealed that she hasn't gotten officially divorced and if her hubby asked her to come back home and become his wife again, she's agree and got back without a second thought!
So that brings up a valid question, why have they gotten separated and news of their divorce spread in the first place?!
Lebanese singer Madeleine Matar recorded a show for New Years Eve on Moroccan TV 2M but the show wasnt aired because of the tragic events in Gaza.

"... There is talk [the Israeli air strikes] were targeting the police and security forces but in Shifa hospital, I saw many, many civilians, some dead, some injured, some were children, some were women, some were elderly people", "There are people without their legs in very severe pain... Some were asking God if they could die..."
"... Killing lots of people on the other side is not only ineffective, it is counterproductive. It hurts your cause. It gets more of your own people killed in the long run...", "Yes the Hamas leaders are crappy and pathetic. Yes they risk their own civilians. That is not at issue. But these Israeli leaders are pathetic, too, so desperate to look tough...", by Lorelei Kelly.

Jordanian Super Star Diana Karazon announced her engagement on the air a couple of days ago on the program Paparazzi, which is broadcast on one of the satellite channels.

Don't you remember something like that too?
