Je la connais si bien et je connais le contenu de sa garde-robe par cœur. Je sais aussi quelle robe lui irait aujourd’hui et ce qu’elle peut encore supporter comme accessoires. Par ailleurs, Sabah est une star, et une star doit conserver une belle image d’elle-même aux yeux de tous. Et il est de notre devoir de faire en sorte que cette image ne soit pas ternie. Je ne sais pas pourquoi il y a des gens qui s’obstinent à la détruire. C’est de la méchanceté gratuite. Ce sont sûrement des ennemis de la lumière, des gens qui n’ont pas pu s’accomplir, des artistes déchus. C’est la femme qui a le plus vécu sa vie au Moyen-Orient, tout en restant honnête et authentique. Ils lui veulent une fin triste et malheureuse, ils espèrent la voir punie. Mais Sabah aura une fin heureuse, elle le mérite. En 90 ans, elle n’a fait que le bien. Si elle n’avait pas été aussi généreuse, elle aurait été aujourd’hui richissime.
I know her so well; I know the contents of her wardrobe by heart. I know how to dress her even today and know which accessories she can still pull off. Beyond that, Sabah is a star and a star must maintain her image to the world. It is our duty to ensure that this image does not become tarnished. I don’t know why so many people seek to destroy this image. This is mean-spiritedness for the sake of being mean. Those who seek to destroy Sabah are enemies of the light, people without accomplishments, failed artists. Sabah is a woman who has lived her life in the Middle East, honestly and authentically. They want her end to be sad and unfortunate: they want to punish her at her end. Sabah will have the happy ending she deserves. All she has ever done is good. If she had not been so generous, she would be a very wealthy woman indeed.
So many people want to make a joke of Sabah as if she has not lived and loved with only purity in her heart. They count down the days until her death, they mock her many marriages (which she only had because she did not want to sleep with anyone to whom she was not married) and they treat her as a joke instead of as the living legend that she is. Bassem could not have said it better. I am in LOVE with the portraits that he and Emile Zeenny put together of her. She looks regal and saintly and at peace, which is all that she is and all that she deserves. I love you, Sabouha.
I absolutely love this. Why are people obsessed with bringing her down? Why do they love to see people like Sabah fade? Why are there pictures circulating around the web of her hospitalized? It takes a lifetime to go through the body of work that Sabah has given and it makes me sick knowing they there are people out there that mock her for something as natural as aging. I’m glad that there are people like Bassem Feghali and Clauda Akl that keep her legacy alive as well as everyone else around her. I love her and her big heart that has no room for the teensiest bit of hate.
