Солистка группы «Мельница» Хелависа: «В нашей семье все женщины немного ведьмы»In our family, all women are witches a bit, but the evil witches among them.—
It turns out that you believe in supernatural forces, in the devils? Maybe you’ve had a mystical meeting or have you seen aliens?

As still affect people are frequent. And how it is perceived by your children?
Солистка группы «Мельница» Хелависа: «В нашей семье все женщины немного ведьмы»It’s tiring, of course. Just got unpacked, settled down and it is time again to put things, look for a new apartment, school, to re-establish a way of life… But kids are very experienced travelers and soldiers persistent, they are great, are well adapted.—
Is it hard to raise two daughters, especially abroad? Is there education, the manner of communication, behavior in society?
Солистка группы «Мельница» Хелависа: «В нашей семье все женщины немного ведьмы»“There” is a very General concept. Each country has their own peculiarities, and, say, the Austrians and the Swiss, even the expense of asking different, although they say conditionally in the same language. As for school, it’s important to me that children go to international schools – it is in order to facilitate adaptation when moving. But honestly, I’d like to return to Russia and live here.

How do you spend time with her daughters?
Солистка группы «Мельница» Хелависа: «В нашей семье все женщины немного ведьмы»I’m doing homework with children, if you want my help, but, in principle, I am for independence. The girls cook together, sing songs, watch movies, and ride on the weekends on the carousel… well, normal life.—

And have you had any moments of outright lack of money?
Солистка группы «Мельница» Хелависа: «В нашей семье все женщины немного ведьмы»Of course, there were. In the early 90s, we bought 300 grams of cheese a month, and it is still believed that we splurge some families have cheese or none at all. And in the beginning I lived in Ireland for a scholarship, which after deduction of the rent remained at approximately 100 euros per month. Most of the money went to books, I went through all of Dublin on foot, fed on the day carrot and poured into a plastic bottle of water from the tap.

You’re not only a singer but also a teacher, and even in University! How to react to students when their teacher is a rock star?
Солистка группы «Мельница» Хелависа: «В нашей семье все женщины немного ведьмы»First you have to understand that I taught at his alma mater, Moscow state University before he became a rock star, and,especially, long before I had to move abroad.

Then work in the “Mill” became so much that I eventually made a choice in favor of music. —
Over the years, “Mill”, as I understand it, two times have completely changed lineup of musicians. How to pass such partings, that is the leader – you suffer or look to the future with optimism?
Солистка группы «Мельница» Хелависа: «В нашей семье все женщины немного ведьмы»Well, not quite, a complete change was only once, but it was quite a few iconic coming and going of musicians. Is all different- sometimes it is obvious that people in the group performed, and he is ready to move on somewhere and then breakups are more or less painless. Sometimes a person does something professionally or humanly unacceptable, it happens “point of no return” when there is no other option but dismissal. And sometimes it’s hard when you realize that the person pulls the current level, on the contrary, pull down the sound of the entire group and, no matter how hard, to meet the goals and objectives cannot, and have to leave.—

Create a fashionable house without an impressive third infusion we did not have had our differences with creative plan with fellow designers, and at some point I realized that sprayed and spend your time and energy on a case that brings nothing.
