A singer has come under fire for wearing hot pants during her concert in Egypt. According to media reports, the female Lebanese singer, Haifa Wehbe was reported to Egyptian authorities because she wore a tight pair of shorts on stage.
The pop star was spotted by a female reporter who saw the performance at the American University of Cairo last weekend and went straight to tourism cops.
According to reports, her manager was summoned after the police informed the Egyptian Musicians’ Syndicate, which licences performers in the country.
Haifa took to her twitter account to post: “I was shocked to learn that a female journalist has lodged a complaint against me at the Syndicate in objection to the shorts I wore. “Has it become intentional [to jeopardize me] after every successful performance in Egypt? “Or is this civilised look strange to some people?”
A spokesman for the EMS said they would not ban Wehbe but the manager was advised to “take into account the traditions and customs of Egyptian people.”
