Lalaev shoots outrageous video for “Instagram” and wants to make a career in show business. “StarHit” decided to find out what was the reason that the young man decided to become a woman.
Ilyas suffered from obesity since childhood. Despite the fact that in his family there are no people struggling with excess weight, it touched by this problem. During snack, he ate 10 sandwiches for lunch and dinner, took himself two portions. According to Laleva, this behavior is due to resentment of the loved ones.

For some time the young man tried to initiate a romantic relationship with peers.
“Was the girl who said I was fat, and she was not happy. I was 18 when we tried to sleep, but she was making fun of me. Later I learned that she has another young man and talked to me for a laugh. After this incident, I to girls are not that negative, but this situation left a mark,” shared Lalaev.
At age 19, Elias decided to go for their goals – he first came to Moscow. In the capital, he starred in the lead role for the short film. For four years Ilyas lives in two cities.

I used to have more videos, even more scandalous. It seemed to me that the worse the better, – says Lalaev. – Many people are accusing me that everything I do is for PR and play on the theme that is causing the resonance. I was silent, and now I understand: I may like a buffoon, a freak. I can make money of your talent.”

After that, the mother said she was not opposed to changing the floor. But they are close to me still call Ilyas. Very soon I will leave and start an independent life. Will work on appearance – I want the chest to be done, remove the ribs to pump up the ass, to correct the person – I have asymmetry, because of this, a lot of complexes. At the moment I haven’t done any surgeries, no lip shook,” – said Lalai.
Parents Lalaeva ready at first to support the son while he is settling in Moscow.

I keep saying, “Talk to the parents, but many times tried and it just did not do! – says Ilyas. – I don’t think it’s normal when a man loves a man and a woman a woman, but I am! Let do not look at my appearance, and soul.”
