Another singer faces charges of debauchery over music video

Another singer detained over racy music video: Prosecutors ordered the detention of singer Leila Amer for four days while they investigate charges brought against her, claiming she incites debauchery with a new music vide, judicial sources told the AFP. Amer is the second pop star to get clipped for the exact same charges under almost exactly the same circumstances in the last few months. While her video didn’t have a banana, she was criticized for “provocative” gestures and language.
