I didn’t expect it to be a success though. Only it was a huge success, people memorized the song, whether they tried or not. When Hayfa started making concerts, the whole picture shifted to unveiling of the ultimate sex symbol. At that time everyone started attacking her. I felt sorry for her, honestly. Not because she was suffering from the situation (she just didn’t care), but simply because the campaign against her was unjustified. She was not stripping. She was relying on her looks for success, and if there were no one to buy her looks then she wouldn’t have become such a success.
After this, she tried to portray herself as a very innocent person. She tried to look childish and fragile. Some people think that this is her attempt to wash away the shades of sexuality of her public picture. I think that was the obvious intention. But to say the truth, the real, and less obvious, intention was to increase the sexual doze of Hayfa Whebe. Think about it, society (and especially in our open minded, sweet orient) is sexist (wow I must have been so smart to have discovered that fact!). And there are 2 corner stones of sexuality in sexist societies:
- Male supremacy
By looking childish Hayfa Whebe is looking less sexually knowledgeable and she is looking less smart. I have seen relationships in this corner of the world. Girls are supposed to be younger than guys, they are supposed to be virgins and they are supposed to know sex only through the needs of there husbands.
It’s known that guys seek easy girls for the real pleasure and virgins for the real relationships. Having both in one package is a fantasy that’s where the childish Hayfa shows up!
Anyway, after my personal experiences in life I came to like Hayfa Wehbe. I still don’t listen to her songs (who listens anyway?). But in a way, she’s a slap in the face of all the weirdos that we call men. ALL men pretend “not to care that much for Hayfa” but let’s face it, the success of Hayfa and the immergence of others (like Ruby, and Maria, and that the other 2 but I don’t know there names) is a clear sign of how much people are paying to get a bit of Hayfa! I like the way she exposed there hypocrisy.
However, I think that Hayfa Whebe’s still as coward as all the others are, despite what many people think. Tae her last song for example: All the WAWA stuff are a clear indication for sexual contact. I know it, you know it, she knows it, we all know it. But she still insisting that it’s all in people’s heads, she’s still insisting that she’s singing a song for babies, or about them. That’s so coward! If she wants to sing it let her do so, I personally encourage that (it shows all the men all the sweet stuff they’re missing by forcing us all into virginity) but why hiding behind her own shadow.
My opinion’s of no importance, but hey! I’ll give it anyway. I don’t admire Hayfa Wehbe, because she wants it all and still being safe. She wants the future to portray her as the one who broke the Taboo but she wants to remain safe!
