The Only Arabian Singer I Listen To

People find it weird that I don't like Arabian music (all genres) even though I am from the Middle East. They also find it weird that I only listen to one Arabian Artist.
Diana Haddad was the first singer I actually liked, and she stuck with her even after I took a liking to Metal music, so she's basically the only... I've said it too many times, but you get the point, the first Arabian Artist.
This is Diana Haddad:
As you can probably tell, her look has changed through the years. There are no fans who find it bad. But some fans do hate the fact that switched her style from Lebanese Pop to Gulf Music. You're probably thinking: "Arabs have music genres?!?!!!". We do, though they mostly come down to dialect and a slight chance in instruments.
Back to her music switch. She was the first Lebanese singer to ever sing in a Gulf dialect, and was followed by many other singers who I won't mention because I don't now the english spelling of their names and am too lazy to search for it.
A few examples of her music:
Lebanese Style & Gulf Style
She has also sung in Egyptian & Iraqi.
Other songs worth mentioning.
As well as her most successful song ever (OLD AND BAD QUALITY LIKE ALL OLD ARABIAN MUSIC VIDEOS).
The only reason I posted so many links is to show the different styles she had tried over the years. She was praised for sticking to the conservative Arab clothes style while still not being too conservative, though I find it irrelevant to her singing abilities. When compared to other Arabic singers, she is considered one of the best.
Anyway, I only made this blog to show what my current song obsession is, which changes everyday. If you read this and be one of the few (if any) who actually responds, what do you think of her?
