Hiba Tawaji rocks the crowd at her debut concert in Riyadh

RIYADH: On her first visit to Saudi Arabia, Hiba Tawaji, wearing a new-collection Ellie Saab dress, expressed surprise at how lively and excited the crowd was at her concert in Riyadh on Wednesday.
“After one of my songs, I yelled ‘girl power.’ I felt honored to be one of the first females to sing in a public concert in Saudi Arabia,” she told Arab News. The singer found fame participating in the TV show “The Voice.”
“Saudi ladies are very close to the heart,” she added, knocking on wood when mentioning how beautiful they are. “I’m impressed.” 
She said: “I’d love to come back to Saudi Arabia. I had a lovely experience. Right now I have lots of concerts, as well as playing the lead part of Esmeralda in ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame,’ a French play that’s quite popular around the world. This year the play is being held in France, next year in Turkey, Russia and Canada.” 
When Arab News asked about her New Year’s Eve plans, she said she likes to spend it with family and friends. Her new year’s resolution is to learn Italian.

EgyptAir pulls magazine after Drew Barrymore article

  • EgyptAir will stop printing the issue and will pull out distributed ones from shelves
  • The airline earlier deflected the blame to a partner advertising agency

CAIRO: Egyptian officials say EgyptAir has removed the latest edition of its in-flight magazine over a contentious article it published, purportedly based on an interview with American actress Drew Barrymore.
They say the carrier had agreed with its publisher, Al-Ahram advertising agency, to stop printing more copies of the October issue of the magazine, Horus, and pull the ones already placed onboard the fleet’s aircraft.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to talk to the media.
Earlier this month, EgyptAir said Al-Ahram is to blame for Horus’ content and specifically for the Barrymore article, which was riddled with misspellings and grammatical errors. It described Barrymore as “being unstable in her relationships” and quoted her as saying that motherhood was “the most important role” of her life.
