Maxim Fadeev respect and dread colleagues — 50-year-old producer for many years, is one of the important figures of the Russian show-business. In an interview with “StarHit” the musician admitted that more than just hates the hypocrisy of others.
And recently, Fadeev became the guest of the new season of the show with the stars “Money or shame” on channel ТНТ4, where he talked with the daring leading Uncle Victor, and explained how humor helps him in life.
Was there a moment on the show when you thought, “Damn, where am I”?
No, I knew where I was going. Was this completely ready! Although my friends and family were against it. But I went because I like uncle Victor, his approach and style.—
What for you is the shame, because you would have interrupted any relationship with a man?
I hate hypocrites and snobs. If the person is a snob, he is stupid by definition. And if he’s a hypocrite, he is not my friend and never will be.
There is some thing for which you feel ashamed?
The list is long, but when you’re ashamed about it, even not want to remember. Can you tell us a funny incident that put me in the paint. I was very young and went to the bath not knowing why it is needed and what is happening there. And when was surrounded by naked men from the basins and brooms, I was in so much shock that I just didn’t know where we are.—
If you go back to his hometown of Kurgan, and with what feelings?
There my ancestors are buried. Of course, I go way back.
Your attitude to money has varied from youth in the Mound until today?
I’m still the same generous and poor.
Have you ever seen a person, in character resembling uncle Vitya?
I had a great-grandfather on my mother’s side, here it is — a copy of uncle Viti: all dissatisfied, all the screaming, but always joking, so no one could take offense to it. Here he would insult, taunt, and then as a joke, that everyone will forget about his words and shake his head. He had never before anybody did not apologize, was a real boor, but wildly humorous. From Faina Ranevskaya was a true case that characterizes my grandfather: she once offended the whole theater and absolutely no one talked to her. And somehow she comes into the dressing room and says “Hello”! No one answered, there was dead silence, she continued: “Thank God that no one, then fart can”. Well, everyone laughed and forgave her everything. I mean, who could say? No one else, so how can you be offended by Ranevskaya? With such people I have the pleasure sitting at the table, invite them home and enjoy this company.—
You have repeatedly said that dissatisfied with the quality of the modern Russian show business and personally fix it in the project “Songs”. What do you think about the humor?
It seems to me that humor is a delicate thing. There’s intelligent humor and below the belt. I think that Russian humor is while the story is about humor below the belt, but someone, sometimes, it rises up to the navel, but to the head while no one has little. While I have favorite artists: like Garik Kharlamov, happy to see Edward Harsh.
Do you have any mandatory questions that you are asking budding artists to determine whether or not to work with him?
Yes, of course. For example, I always ask about a final goal. What he wants to come, what to do? I always take people who are individuals who argue, oppose, Express their opinion and defend it. It is a valuable.—
Free time who spend?
With friends and family. I think that I’m the best father for his son, because love him very much.
Who would of stars invited for the show?
Yes, I would advise everyone to go to the show to uncle Vite. But for some reason I’m afraid. I know that the audience will not accept a fake. So you need to invite new, young, daring heroes and “print” them. They also believe that the most intelligent in the rap-savvy, well, then go here, talk to this intelligent man. Let you apart because all mighty only in social networks.—
The broadcast will see 90 million viewers. Now there is a chance to use it to air — what would you say to them?
I went to the show with the mindset that he’s never given me a laugh. I even made a bid in the amount of 10 000 rubles that he did not laugh, I very badly wanted to laugh. But, in the end, I owed him money and the debt paid. Uncle Victor handsome, and most importantly — a very smart and handsome. Feels great his guest.
