The singer told “StarHit”, how was her life after participating in popular designs. Not so long ago, Sasha decided to return to the musical Olympus and have prepared for this special project.
Alexander Gurkovo many remembered first to participate in the project “You – supermodel” on STS, then the girl loudly declared itself on “Factory of stars”, which came quite young. Thanks to the contact with the screen as the contestants the girl in time became part of show business. In the first years after the heady success came to her after participating in projects Kurkova sang in the group “Princess Avenue”, a song which sang to teenage girls across the country. Now in the life of Alexandra entered a new Chapter. Now she is a happy wife and mother, continued, nevertheless, to be creative. To the musical Olympus Gurkova back with a new project, and now fans know her as Sasha Holiday. “StarHit” talked with the singer and find out how was her life after “idol.”
The participants who dropped from sight: how was their fate
Sasha, when you graduated from “American idol” for a while disappeared from sight. Then all saw you in the group “Princess Avenue”, but this project stopped. What happened to you then?
It was, perhaps, the most difficult period in my life. I was left alone, pregnant, without work and without money. I was just sitting in his apartment and stared at the walls all day, not knowing what to do and how to live. Began health problems. My husband does not even have a Russian passport, to go anywhere to get a job in Moscow, he only managed to move in with me from Finland. Almost all turned on me. To say I was depressed is nothing to say. Could only cry and pray that I did.—
On the days you have with her husband Valery Drobysh was a wedding anniversary – you have lived together for seven years. What has changed in your relationship during this time? Were you able to maintain?
No, it was not maintained. Because our relationship over the years has become much better. And now all the feeling that go into some new, uncharted phase of special closeness and understanding. We survived the lack of money, problems with parents, quarrels and crying every hour a child in a small Studio apartment. I never believed all those stories that “love lives 3 years” and so on. This is nonsense and an excuse, when there is no intention of making the relationship better and to change.”
And how things are going with her husband’s family?
I have a very good relationship with mother-in-law, a talented poet Helen stjuf’s word. I know it’s rare, but I call her mom. It does everything that I felt her child – care, counsels, and protects. Of course, feed me to the slaughter. Not even dishes to wash! I always worry, but to argue with mom on this subject is useless. We are infinitely having fun together and chatting in the kitchen until four in the morning. Most of all I appreciate in Lena that she is very strong, fair and always delicate – it never hear of the attacks from the “why are you so skinny”, “why do you dye your hair that color”, “what are you feeding the baby” and so on. On the contrary, Lena herself has a great taste and broad-minded, so she cracks up.—
Who in your family still in charge?
In our family the main course, my husband, and I really think these are the best positions for marriage. Even if I don’t agree with his decision, and he insists I do as he thinks is right. Sometimes at this point I’m yelling, but I still do. He insists ,by the way, just in case. Often asks for my opinion itself. Generally the most uncomfortable part is when the woman climbs with their advice without asking, it just would not stop talking then. Even it infuriates me when I see such. Our main principle is family first, and then everything else. Deep in our relationship we do not allow anyone. All the sweet and wonderful hidden from the public eye and belongs to just the two of us.—
You have a son. How do you feel as a mom?
We absolutely were not ready for his birth! I couldn’t do anything, diapers I saw for the first time in the hospital. In many respects I was helped by my husband because he since the age of 12 had to raise his younger brother. A little later, we have delved into the study of child psychology and education. It turned out that diapers, feeding and all daily things, which are so worn out young mothers, it is not so important as to learn to communicate with their own child. Many are trying to be strict, and then loving. I fundamentally disagree. First comes love and acceptance, then discipline. We never humiliate the dignity of our son, he is small but people. When moms yell at their children in public places, I’m itching to smack them all and say, “You nice?”. I believe that children raise their hand because they can’t answer. It’s disgusting!—
And how you and your husband raise the child? What focus?
Trying to my son was a confident person. But we have strict rules of conduct and a system of weekly rewards. Tantrums do nothing from me to achieve. Good and bad COP we’re not playing, try to bring in one canvas. The nature of the son of Nordic, very strong. I like it, a man should be strong-willed. Well, how else, he was born on 11.11.11. So idea for a first tattoo I was not – was tattooed on her body that date. Yet we all the time embrace, kiss and tell him how much you love how happy he is our son. Let these memories warm his whole life.
You now perform under the alias Sasha Holiday. Why did you choose that name? And how, in principle, decided to return to the stage?
I was sure that my career ended with Vanyushkina birth. There was no way to create something, as not even enough for baby things, familiar at first gave us the remnants of clothes of their children. And then my husband said, “We just have to try! If you don’t do what you dream, you’ll regret it for the rest of my life.” The secret beginnings of a simple – stupid to begin with. Though lying in this direction, if can’t run there. We started to look for jobs and to invest in songs. It took a lot of time, because every creative step requires a decent investment. And we need to adequately feed our baby, as any parents would like to buy only good and beautiful. Now we ourselves can’t explain how it all managed to pull. Over the title I thought for long – I always seemed to only Sasha, not Alexandra, and all my childhood was spent singing the songs of Billy Holiday’s favorite singer my dad. Plus a few days later we laughed about what to order for corporate events Sanya Holiday is a success! –
Who is responsible for the repertoire?
Music we do together with Valery, but for him the crucial word is always. I’m more vocal pieces, for the visualization of content for ideological components, but it makes everything sound. I trust him completely, he’s incredibly talented music producer. We also use third party young authors and producers from different parts of the world. We have a terrible international in the project! Songs came from Los Angeles and Stockholm, directed the last clip was Japanese, an Australian, online-designer – Finn and so on. We are looking for like-minded people around the world, including in Russia, there now began to appear class professionals, with them, we also start to cooperate. Work only with those who believe in us, and always give room for creativity. A new person must bring something unique and creative in my project, and not just stupid to follow my commands, otherwise I don’t need it – I have my own creative ideas more projects 5 minimum. We need a whole wave of creativity! —
Your new look – pink hair, catchy makeup, unusual clothes not fit with the image of an exemplary mom. Don’t you hate that?
I generally do not bother. I do not care who and what thinks about me. And who is such an exemplary mother? It’s kind of an ephemeral concept, image, and all mothers – they are real live people. I know who I am, God knows and that is enough. I am very responsible attitude to its mission moms and do it with love and respect. What’s the difference what I’m wearing? Son calls me little pony and loves when I’m going to concerts. Always waiting for what a new mom might hurt himself. Sometimes even making the orders! I try to instill in him the freedom of thinking, creativity in all. I basically do nothing frikovaya, it’s just the trends of modern fashion, I wear interesting design things.
Why did you choose this image? Who is helping you to make the suits?
My image is that close to me, like that. To pick up clothes, helps me with my stylist Arch Manush. He senses me, sometimes better than I know myself. He directly looks inside and pulls out my childhood dreams and adult fantasies, making them things. I never wanted to go on stage, “just beautiful.” Sometimes it is the place to be, but to act on her heel, curls and dress in sequin I’m bored is primitive. I just don’t like that. I love to experiment, to try. One life, to do what you like. —
In September will be released your new music video based on the popular game. Tell us how came the idea to create this image?
My next job will be, perhaps, the most favorite song to date. I have long thought, what kind of visualization to pick up under her and decided just to combine everything that I love – a song I adored the game. More I do not want to tell, now I’m looking for a command that will make my dream come on the screen.
You communicate with other graduates of “factory of stars”? How to relate to the success of some of them?
With colleagues at the “Factory” I talk, of course. The successes followed, now it is not difficult, given the pervasive web of social networking. For all rejoice. I’m always just happy when I see cool projects. I can admire. Plus I understand how difficult it is to do anything of their own. Nastya Shevchenko we have a tradition – I go every year to visit her “girly holiday”. We sit for a week and not doing any-thing, only eat oysters , drink wine, go shopping and discuss everything. I know she is always near, despite thousands of kilometers. —
You, like many, there are plenty of haters. How you react to criticism with which you have to face?
Heydarov I feel sorry for. Beauty’s in the eye of the beholder, and the whole world is a reflection of the internal state. If the person is not able to see the beautiful, it says only that he is ugly on the inside. I think that to live in such a dark world hate. But inadequate fans I’m afraid! For example, one guy sent me his cut up arm with a razor with the text “look how I love you, but if you don’t want to be mine, I will find you”. I was on the third month of pregnancy, I just cried. But with adequate fans I communicate with pleasure. They have me krutyshki.
