An enduring star since her teenage years, Wehbe has graced hundreds of magazine covers in her own time zone and has long been a lightning rod for controversy: feuds with rival divas, crash-and-burn relationships, and a taste for revealing clothing that rankles Muslim conservatives. In the video for her most recent single, “Ezzay Ansak” (“How can I forget you?”), amid reminiscences of domestic bliss in an all-white mansion Mariah Carey would be proud to call home, Wehbe, clad in a bodysuit and a glittering cat mask, rappels from the ceiling into a vault of emerald necklaces. Dangerous vanity, it seems, is popular anytime, anywhere.
