Today the actress, whose identity has always been shrouded in mystery, celebrates 40th anniversary. “StarHit” find out what really is behind the many rumors about her.
It’s hard to believe, but today, August 26, Zemfira Ramazanova will be 40 years old. The presentation of her first album took place in 1999. During this time she became a music legend, but her life has acquired all sorts of speculation. “StarHit” chose five myths and tested them.
Myth 1. Group the Uchpochmack collapsed, and nephews of the singer went abroad (the Truth)
After the death of his parents and brothers Zemfira no one closer than nephews, 26-year-old Artur and Artem Ramazanov’s. Three years ago, with them she sang in the group the Uchpochmack. “Their First and Last album was the only one – said, “StarHit” Emelyanov, guitarist. We played together, but the group did not last long. The last time I saw you guys in 2014″.
The fares of the year on tour with his aunt, nephews returned to his native Ufa. “Artem and Arthur still making music in his Studio writing songs, but few who give them to listen, – has shared with “StarHit” Evgeny Ostapenko, cousin Ramazanov’s. Sing for friends or relatives at home gatherings. To marry yet do not think, although a lot of groupies. Yes and thought of the boys on the other. In late August they fly to London, will study at the faculty of pop vocal. A few years ago they were in England, only mastered directing. They then Zemfira helped.”
While the guys in Ufa, Tom helps her mother Natalia. She’s a businesswoman and is the founder of ZAO “Forward”, which deals with the supply of products in the supermarket chain.
MYTH 2. THE FIRST LOVE OF A ROCK MUSICIAN FROM UFA ( FICTION)
Not once wrote that a star’s first love was Vladislav Kolchin, they are in the mid-90s played in Ufa restaurant “Jasper”. In his autobiography “Music as a chance to win multiple sclerosis” – its presentation will be held on September 14 – Vlad spoke about the fight against the disease and dedicated singer of a Chapter. In it, he revealed the truth about their relationship – the future star was just a cover for Kolchin. A longtime friend wrote the following: “…the Owner showed interest in me… Zemfira, just in case, fearing for my safety as I could, played the role of my girl.”
MYTH 3. RAISED HIS HAND TO THE MAN (THE TRUTH)
“Zemfira was in the center of the scandal…” – such headings can often be found in the press. Even friends know that under the hot hand the singer is better not to fall.
“A slap in the face can give to anyone,” recalls the musician Vlad Kolchin. – In the restaurant “Jasper” was the bandits. One day they got drunk and started making orders for the songs. One Zemfira refused to do. Then one of the skinheads walked up, bent over her and began to whisper. Zemfira, as usual in such moments, he paused and listened intently. When it was over, she calmly slapped him across the face and rushed to the back room. In the hall began fighting,the noise, the screams. We defended the guards of the restaurant, and to hush up the conflict, I had to call a friend to the bandits.
Why does the singer behaves, explained her first producer Leonid Burlakov: “Impudence and rudeness is a common defense from people. Actually Zemfira sincere and attentive people. A year and a half ago called me to check on things. Said that she Ufa at mom’s. Gave up Florida to Jakiene. She thanked him for the fact that I helped my daughter in her musical career. And I said thank you for Zemfira. She loves children and with them she turns into a child. Somehow my daughter Mary stopped by her guests. She not only gave us a warm welcome met, but fry is very delicious cheesecakes”.
MYTH 4. THE SINGER HAS A SERIOUS ILLNESS (FICTION)
Three years ago Zemfira posted in social networks photos Topless. Fans were shocked by her thinness. Immediately there were rumors of illness singer and the use of illegal drugs.
“To work, as Zemfira, you need a lot of effort, says producer Leonid Burlakov. No doping will not help and will only hinder. Zemfira understands. She gives concerts almost 20 years.”
But health problems have the stars really are.
“She has a chronic disease, she constantly complained of pain in his left ear,” recalls journalist and producer Alexander Kushnir. – Remember that when she first moved to Moscow, money and registration she was not. I was helping her with the doctors. Among my friends were found highly qualified specialists”.
A few years ago an old disease – chronic otitis media – escalated, and the singer ended up in the hospital.
MYTH 5. LIVING IN AN EMPTY APARTMENT (THE TRUTH)
“If you ever find yourself in, you’ll see that the singer uses only three subjects, – says Leonid Burlakov. Is the sofa where she is sitting, a table for work, the piano to write music. Zemfira – not a fan of things, and by and large she doesn’t care what she’s wearing. And with a taste misfortune. Externally, it transformed with Nastya Kalmanovich and Renata Litvinova, who had a hand in her style. She cares more about other things. Remember how excited Zemfira was looking for a amplifier for the bass. Ordered it from London, and when received, I was happy as a child.”
By the way, on the cover of the first album of the singer Zemfira is also nothing extra – just the flowered Wallpaper from her first apartment rent. “She was living in Peredelkino, – says the journalist and producer Alexander Kushnir. – There and took this picture. And when it became clear that the album was rushed, made a witty gift for the dedicated – released limited edition CD, only 999 pieces. On the cover was a beautiful brown finish chair – as a sign that previously was only Wallpaper, but now there is money on the furniture. Now this disc is worth unimaginable money, and she I have.”
