Remember Lara Kay? Lebanon’s version of YouTube reality star wannabes?
Well she’s back. And she has taken a few lessons from the likes of Myriam Klink in how to get people talking, which shouldn’t come as a surprise with it involving singing.
Her song is “ataletleh l a7lem” and it is not as “trashy” as Klink’s “3antar.” She’s basically depressed about life in Lebanon. So she decided to sing about it.
Shou we2fet 3laya? L kel beddo yghanne.
Problem is even with auto tune, she’s out of tune and the video she has going with the song is simply boobs galore.
Now please, for the love of God, don’t tell Nemr Abou Nassar about this. Let’s keep this among ourselves, have fun with it for a week max, and not turn it into a matter of national security.
This is absolutely disgusting and as +961 said “Please tell me this is a joke.”
Let’s start with the shorter video – I couldn’t go through the first 30 seconds. I really thought her lips were going to fall off. Shouldn’t there be a law as to how much silicon you can inject into a certain part of your body? Dear Lara, your lips are not koussa. Walaw?
And since there’s another longer video, I decided not to waste my quota on it. 15 minutes of this atrocity is nowhere near acceptable. But hey, you might find her “entertaining?”
In the first video, she says about herself that she’s beautiful. Miss Kay, if you’re beautiful then Maryam Nour should be crowned Miss Universe. How about you ponder on that while you give hair advice?
Update: I was just linked to her Facebook page. She has over 450 likes. Why does she have that many likes? Well, let’s just say that she has many images there that resemble this:
No, you’re not imagining things – if you know what I mean.
Everyone knows by now that I’m a huge fan of country singer Carrie Underwood. I also believe she has one of the best voices I’ve ever heard – and no, I’m not being biased. Even if you dislike her, you can’t but appreciate her talent.
So I was positively surprised when I stumbled on a youtube video that is precisely what this post is about: showing you just how versatile a singer Carrie Underwood truly is.
The fact of the matter is, she has tackled more genres than people have realized – and she has nailed every performance outside the country genre, which is supposed to be her home turf.
Without further ado, just check out the video:
Who knew that the person that would be taking YouTube by storm these days would not be Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga or Britney Spears… but Carrie Underwood.
Showing everyone that you don’t need legions of teenagers and sexed up music to get the attention of the masses, she has gone in the totally opposite direction: gospel music.
Carrie’s first video to be considered a viral success was her duet with Steven Tyler at the ACMs on the Aerosmith song “Walk This Way”.
Becoming the top video in music on YouTube for a few day and also topping out the most watched videos lists in many countries around the world, “Walk This Way” stands in less than three weeks at more than 4 million hits.
And for those that might say the only reason Walk This Way became viral was the presence of Steven Tyler, Carrie indirectly replied with a breathtaking performance of How Great Thou Art.
Not only did she blow everyone away with her voice but her performance has actually reached the masses with the video currently standing at a little less than 2 million hits, a mere four days after her performance. How Great Thou Art is a gospel song, praising God… and it is sung in a divine way and people want to listen to it. Maybe other artists should take note?
Moreover, Carrie is now the #1 trending topic on Yahoo!, fueled by the growing popularity of her How Great Thou Art performance.

A singer’s job is to sing, not to show skin in order to get attention. People are beginning to call Carrie Underwood this generation’s best vocalist. And that is not something to take lightly. She has no way to go but up… and as the pop masses would say: Get it, Carrie!
A friend linked me today to a YouTube video that hasn’t gone viral in the Middle East yet, featuring Lebanese TV presenter Razan Moghrabi in an intimate session with friends, discussing sex.
I normally wouldn’t care about such a thing. Sex is a natural thing that we discuss. However, Razan takes this “discussion” to a whole new level with lewd behavior that includes putting her hand up the guy’s shorts.
Lebanese people in general, and women in particular, are already being stereotyped as being overly promiscuous, which, in a region as conservative as the one we live in, isn’t a positive association. We try to tell everyone how this is not true and that those spreading such lies are Saudi men whose only purpose of coming to Lebanon in summer is to get laid.
