Fairuz is Fairuz is Fairuz
In this article (in Arabic) about Fairuz, she is referred to as "Al Sayyeda" (Mrs./ Lady/ Madam) six times. It's even used without her name following the title. The title becomes her name. I don't like it. Even if her pay is half a million dollars per night, she's still Fairuz. She never needed adjectives or superlatives or titles. If I sound cranky, it's because I am cranky.
