BACKSTAGE ΜΑΥ 16: KRISTA ALLOWED 10 YEARS AFTER t.A.T.u. FORBIDDEN
The Finnish representative managed to provoke the media again using the same plan as she did in Amsterdam: kissing her backing female singer. Back then she said that the entire scene was intentional as she hates the discrimination between the straight and gay couple marriage status in many European countries. Today she made it clear again during her rehearsal that she will do it again rising question (?)
Back in 2003 Russian entrants t.A.T.u. were about to be kissed on stage something that was completely forbidden by the EBU as the show was a family show and shouldn’t play with the current European ethics. We kindly asked the EBU for a statement 10 years after the Russian warning. EBU avoid to talk on the matter and therefore Krista 10 years after will be allowed to kiss a woman on stage.
Talking to press and media representatives in Malmoe they all said that it’s nonsense to pay attention to such things anymore and define someone regarding sexuality and sexual preferences. It’s no secret that there is a massive pro-gay / pro-lesbian movement the last two years; just remember that many countries are already voting pro homosexual wedding already in Europe and abroad.
