Rabih El Zein Wins Mr. Lebanon. Boy Toy!

Lebanon may not have a president, but sure thing she has its Mr. Lebanon ready to go. He is a good looking fellow. And he seems to be happy about being the prettiest boy in the room. He says it took him two months to prepare for that thing. He thinks Mr. Lebanon is only the beginning.

Rabih El Zein took home the title, I am so happy to see not only the women of Lebanon are asked to show off their hood looks. His next thing is taking part of a contest in Turkey. Rabih is good guy he is well spoken and I think he has future on TV.

Double major in theater and media, he likes to have a good time, but he also likes basketball.

Those Brown-Nosing Egyptian Entertainers Deserve To Live Under Dictatorship!

See the A list entertainers from Egypt pose with the army

Just watch them release one song after another praising the army and it's lovely army leader General Sisi, who has never met a a massacre he did not like. Now, the entertainers all falling in line behind him singing hims praises. They sing for the second revolution but not the first one. Le'ts be clear, the main artists in Egyptian music did not sing for the Jan 25th revolution, But they all came swinging for the second revolution (aka coup)

They are singing about their history and past glories, but have no idea that the future is what matters, and they just have ruined it for everyone else. I love how this song, calls the brotherhood a minority--forgetting off course that minorities have won the past six fair elections that took place in Egypt. The issues with such thinking, is that they fall in love with persons, not the process. Meaning democracy is a process and it's hard to like, but when a charming and soft spoken dictator raises, the people of Egypt cheer him on. and remember 30 years later their original sin. 

I thought entertainers like Medhat Saleh and Rihm Abd El Hakeem were all for freedom of speech, but they were among the first to usher a new ear of intimidation and repression. Of course those practices come wrapped in the flag of nationalism and Arab Unity. I love how they sing for Arab unity, but the new government is choking the Gaza Strip, jailing Palestinians, Syrians and Yemenis for no crime they have committed.

The humor in all this, the army targeted the brotherhood first, second they gutted the liberals, and now they are going after the Al-Azhar and the other parties that does not endorse the arm's practices.

I remind you, most of those singers who are praising the army were the same ones who sucked up to Mubrak, and now they are coming back for the encore.

The First Arabic Music Video With Lesbians--Thank you Rabih Gemayel (Video)

Here's a guy who comes from a political dynasty in Lebanon, but politics drives people apart. Rabih Gemayel wanted to bring them together so he chose music instead. I have taken notice of this new comer few months ago with the release of this moving dude song, a song about bros code.....a song about his past love who is now in a serious relationship with his best pal. The song is about the dilemma of what to do in this situation.

You are in love one day playing bowling and in few, love goes sour, and things go south. Rabih found this song  with Faris Iskander....and he seems to find luck with this young hit-maker. Then your buddies swings by, and shows you a photo of his gal, then you see she is none but your ex. I do not know if this is stupid concept for a music video. The only real problem here is that people are forced to conceal their identities, not that they have same gender attraction. I give the people behind the music video credit for brining out this issue to the spotlight.

Goes this song from Rabih Gemayel. Not sure why all the women are dressed like teenage cheerleaders, not real women. I give it to this artist he has gone under a makeover that fits his style. Watch for the minute he meets his ex pretending not to know her. I guess this is about Lesbian love as well. This is bold dude, perhaps the first hip song to tackle the issue of you same gender attraction in the female population.

The Assyrian Australian Sexy Actor / Model Ramis Issac Corny Song @RamisIssac

Here's a good looking guy left the Middle East to live in peace in Australia, but since he is good looking he is now an actor, a model and now a singer. Ramis Issac is dubbed "the first Assyrian/Babylonian Model." and you know I asked my wife, she agrees he is a good looking dude.

When it comes to music, if this is his first song ever, it's OK. But if his music career to hold, he needs to do better. The lyrics are corny and his vocal performance is not yet Western. His approach to music is similar to that of Arabic and Assyrian songs.

I thank Ramis for doing more, and I am happy he has found safety in a place that gives him a room to be creative and good looking.
