The underground contractor has entered juried shows “Success”, which will premiere on 5 November. “StarHit” learned from Suppurative joint filming with Bruno Mars and Philip Kirkorov, the pop music and fashion in a public squabble.
Vyacheslav Machnow, better known as the Purulent and glory to the CPSU, is popular among fans of hip-hop battles, but a wider audience is just beginning with him. Recently, the 27-year-old native of Khabarovsk was among the experts the new vocal show “Success” of the channel STS. Machnow selects artists who dream of a career in show business. With him in the seats of the jury is Jane and Philip, and leading the project began Vera Brezhnev. Sometimes on the set ignite serious passion — to make the performer went on to conquer the musical Olympus, need the consent of the whole star team. “StarHit” met with Purulent and learned as it relates to sudden fallen popularity, judging by Jane Kirkorov, as well as contemporary pop music.
Thank how you feel as a judge in this ambitious project?
It is quite comfortable. Sometimes there are moments when you can laugh. —
Amuse me my jokes. The rest they can seem unfunny.
Why did you even agree to participate?
Perhaps the main reason is financial (laughs). It’s simple.—
And you don’t want to support artists?
Actually, you can, if there are worthy candidates. While there was only one person, the development of which I would like to watch. —
What impressions have you got from the other members of the jury?
I learned that Nyusha, it turns out that she writes music and lyrics. My attitude to it has changed. As it turned out, it is very interesting, creative girl. Yeah and Philip, a nice man.—
Your cover with Kirkorov started to repost and discuss in social networks. Many were not ready to see you together with Philip. How do you feel about that?
I liked it. It turned out funny. And the public’s reaction were also hilarious. I’ve seen a lot of pictures, for example, I have the phone image on which Kirkorov with our faces swapped. As to the conviction, that people in General tend to criticize, so that’s fine.
I wonder if you are watching Russian pop music? Often listen to it?
No, I guess. When I’m in a cab, listen to different pop hits. Can’t say that I like them, basically, these songs bring me rejection. I am sure that we have enough live an interesting “pop”. It before, in the 90s, people could sing: “In the bag of cigarettes, chain, tutorial, and diary, you’re coming with brass knuckles to school, you hide not used”. And now everything is too polished, in pop music there is no existence, something real, she’s too professional. So it’s boring.—
I can assume that project participants include many of those who fits your description.
Yeah, that’s why I few like. It isn’t hard to click on “No.”
Who are you listening from Russian artists?
All that had my taste — punk rock, electronic music, psicodelico, of course, hip hop. I don’t consider myself a fan of any one genre. In General, I like old Russian pop and modern — no.
I can not ask about your attitude to the work of Olga Buzova, which all stormed the charts.
As a product it might be good, once ranked first in the top of iTunes. But if we talk about her music, it is shit.—
Would like to record a joint track?
It is possible, why not. Olga Buzova — a cultural marker, a phenomenon that can be fun and outside the box to beat. —
Let’s talk about Tina Kandelaki. Like she’s serious battle with the Milky…
I think that this is absurd. But I think she will be able to win over the Milky, since even Booker won it.
Don’t you think an unexpected that a woman battled with a man?
Rather, it is strange that in the fight involved people not from that environment. There are women who have the necessary skills, for example, our [Booker] good friend Julia Kiwi. She quite naturally looks for this battle, and her gender plays no role.—
Would you help Tina prepare for the “Versus”?
I think she’ll manage without me. Tina Kandelaki is a smart woman, and chattering, and so it knows.—
Now even many stars of show business try themselves as battle rappers in the show and not only.
People are always trying to jump on any wave, when she’s already gone. Usually they can’t do it, because you have to be on its crest, rather than trying to keep up with the trend, when all around are doing the same.—
Even Maxim Galkin called to fight a Basta…
This is another proof of the poverty of attempts to ride the wave of popularity. Disgusting, unfunny, vulgar and stupid. I think that battles should participate professionals or those in context. Outsiders do not understand the process, they perceive it completely differently. Otherwise it’s ridiculous and pathetic. Of course, after some time, the fashion for the battles will take place. Nothing lasts forever. —
Tell me, what relatives think about your activities?
You’re my friend? (turns to Booker D. Fred, who is sitting nearby). Share your opinion.
Well, we would put up with it. As with something lame, but necessary. So you can live. If the street is not pointing a finger, everything is fine. Otherwise, I have somehow sadly. There is a feeling of existential helplessness, of powerlessness in the machine of media resources, which devour of the situation. And so, in principle, not bad. More or less. —
Fame, but certainly in recent times began to poke and try to casually take pictures of… How to cope with such increased attention?
Of course, it happens that you get tired, and in Russia, and everywhere, a lot of boorish, familiar people. But there are pleasant moments. Different. —
And how relatives reacted to your participation in the project? Still, “Success” with Kirkorov for many representatives of the senior generation much more understandable story than battle rap.
Started calling distant relatives from Khabarovsk, which have not been thinking about me over the years. They say: “Glory, we saw you on TV”. The usual thing, nothing. My closest is my mother and my sister, ofigevayu from happening. Moreover, laugh with me. But they are smart and understanding, so everything is fine.
What shocking things do your fans?
In the stairwell I have no one on duty. But Yes, it happens. Recently at a concert a girl came up and said, “may I see your hand”. Then began to consider and said: “Now I know what your long cock”. It was very strange. —
Fans sent their pictures to direct?
It happens, but I don’t care. I have a girlfriend, she lives in Moscow, and in Petersburg I… I do not tire moving, I’m happy to be here. Sometimes it happens that she is jealous and says: “Come.” Recently, however, I often find myself in the capital, so we have not yet had any problems. Now I will go on tour for two months, let’s see how it can survive.—
But you to move to Moscow while don’t you think?
I like Petersburg. Beautiful city, more relaxed, and it is smaller than Moscow. No need to spend a lot of time on the road. —
It is clear that your heart is taken. But still — what kind of girls do you like? Do you have any preferences?
Like many, I like smart and beautiful. What I will say. I have a strange criteria, such as interest in the girls hair, ash colors or something like that. To be honest, for me is important, when you share my Hobbies, because otherwise it becomes boring. I’m still fairly selfish person — it is important that girls played with my toys.
