BEIRUT: American singer and actress Jennifer Lopez carried a Lebanese flag during her concert in Dubai Thursday, which coincided with Lebanon’s 69th anniversary of Independence Day.
Part of her Dance Again World Tour, Lopez surprised her audience at Dubai’s Media Center by holding up the flag and wearing it around her shoulders.
Lebanon, formerly under a French mandate, gained its independence on Nov. 22, 1943.
There are an estimated 78,000 Lebanese in the UAE with around 41,000 in Dubai alone.
The 43-year-old artist, one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood, has also collaborated with world renowned Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad to design her outfits for her 2012 tour, which also included Turkey.
