Xena, Hello! Tell us why you decided to become a singer and have you considered other ways to fulfill themselves?
In my life there was a time when I doubted your choice. Then I went to art school and studied piano and music teacher said I have talent. After a few years, I faced a choice – would I become an artist or singer. I decided to focus on the ground, but also hesitated for a long time. Now I continue to paint for myself.—
Have you applied for the “Junior Eurovision”. Tell us about this experience.
I participated in the final of the national selection, which had 10 artists, one of them had to go to the competition. Two times I applied but I never managed to reach the final stage and present to Belarus. I guess I just do not fall under the format of the Junior Eurovision song contest. Remember that at that time very tightly prepared, every day singing and creating the image. The hardest part was in summer, I generally did not rest.—
Perhaps you’ve seen the adult “the Eurovision” would you like to participate and represent your country?
While I’m only 15, I’m on the “New star Factory” and do not look so far away. Although, of course, dream of a big future in the music industry.
You are the youngest participant of the project and joined the project a few days before his fifteenth birthday. Do you feel the age difference with the other “manufacturers”?
I thought that I did not get to make new friends and to join the team because I’m the youngest. But it just so happens that I don’t feel for 15 years and can easily communicate with everyone on the same page. Of course, sometimes there were minor conflicts due to the difference in age, but they remained in the past.—
Are the older children care for you?
Some members treat me like a little sister – love me, take care always help. Others perceive as a friend, and there are those who consider me a competitor. To sum up, most of the guys I feel the love, support, sincerity.—
The diaries show that you are very warmly communicate with Ulyana and Elman. Who else from the parties you have formed friendships?
I communicate well with everyone, but in Elman and Ulyana, I found kindred spirits, we share a lot of interests. We are very creative people and do not feel any difference in age.
How did your parents react to your decision to participate in the “New Factory of stars”? Still, at such a young age to move to another country for four months to fall out of the familiar life is very stressful even for an adult…
Parents accepted my decision very easily and safely. I think “Factory” is cool and necessary for me now the project to develop spiritually and artistically. —
Due to participate in the project, you don’t go to school. Close mind?
They always support me. And the fact that I miss school, it doesn’t matter. When I come to Minsk, I will help with the study. We have already decided that contact your Tutors to catch up, and I’m finally finishing 9th grade. Teachers we are warned in the late summer, after the final casting for MUZ-TV. Teachers and classmates are rooting for me and watching the ethers. By the way, I read a lot of fiction, trying to keep up with the program.—
Are you a student?
I wanted to start a cattle farm, but quickly realized that it was for me not the main thing. Now I horoshistka.—
What other items you like except music?
I love math, but only in those moments when I am able to deal with it. Very like English, do try to pay attention to the languages.
Two months on the “New Factory of stars” have you had the chance to sing with Valerie, Jane and the group “the City 312”. How much were you excited to work with the stars?
In fact, every performance on stage with the artist is very exciting. If I know the artist and our duet, I feel calmer. —
How do you duet with Alexander Rybak? First you have accepted this Duo and even cried, but in the end turned out to be so powerful and beautiful room.
Yes, this image of the girl-cat of the anime seemed very strange to me and strange. I felt ill at ease, and I felt that people would look askance. But as it turned out, the audience reacted calmly to my character, and in the end all turned out well. Not prevent even the fact that these songs I never performed.—
You can say I was pleased with myself after this number?
Of course! Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. I believe that the artist should be able to log in to different images.—
With whom would you still like to perform? Do you have any favorite performers?
Of our artists I would love to sing with Ivan Dorn, Monticom, Grigory Leps, Timati and foreign love Beyonce, Drake, Chris brown and Jessie J. Actually, I listen to very different music, often include something movable – R’n’b and hip-hop. At the same time, I like to learn new styles and trends.—
What else are you into?
I believe that the artist needs to combine dancing and singing. When I lived in Minsk, in a free swinging and athletics. My dad – the master of sports, and we trained together. I really like to do makeup and do hair. People think that I’m great at it. I already got the hang of it – can easily make up yourself and girlfriends to a party.
Let’s talk about the boys. What young men do you like?
I think the guy should be a creative person, not necessarily a musician. The main thing that he was in a rush to do their work. Of course, of great importance also has a sense of humor. As for appearance, I like tall guys who could defend me and be on hand. Tell you a secret, I really like the African Americans of its bright appearance and temperament (laughs). Although, in principle, no matter what human growth and who is he by nationality. It is important that we were soul mates, understand and support each other.
