…Charlotte Perrelli has found her hero?
The 1999 Eurovision winner and her groom Anders tied the knot during a lavish wedding in France yesterday. The bride wore an elegant wedding gown by Elie Saab and these wonderfully sparkly shoes! Her new legal name will be Charlotte Jensen Perrelli, but she will keep performing as Charlotte Perrelli.

…Loreen had some Mexican help becoming euphoric?
In an interview with Elle magazine she admits to having taken part in priest led ceremonies where the psychedelic drug ayahuasca has been used as a tool for the participants to get more in touch with themselves and gain access to a larger part of their brains.  She first tried the drug four years ago, prior to her Eurovision victory. “It meant a lot to me, as it allowed me to look at myself from the outside” Loreen tells Elle.

…Jedward are branching out?
After finishing sixth in The X Factor (UK) and representing Ireland in both the 2011 and 2012 Eurovisions, they have among other things hosted children’s tv-shows and participated in Celebrity Big Brother. Lately, however, they have tried their luck on other arenas; film and fashion. 2015 has seen the twins both work their magic on the catwalk for Jean Paul Gaultier during the Life Ball in Vienna and make their film debut in “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!”. They haven’t quite made it to the top of the credits yet, but it’s a start. We can’t wait to see what the pair will do next!

…Waylon had to sell his Amsterdam apartment, valued at 368,590€, after not paying property tax?
The sale of the apartment allowed Waylon to pay what he owed the authorities, also leaving him a little pocket money; 150,000€. And don’t worry; he has a place to live, so he won’t have to sleep under one of Amsterdam’s countless bridges.

…Iceland’s María Ólafs isn’t *really* a Disney princess?
The 22 year old singer could easily be mistaken for a little girl on stage in Vienna, but during last Saturday’s Culture Night she looked all grown up in black leather pants, heels and a fringed jacket. She rocked the stage, performing her hit single, “Dancing in the Storm” as well as her Eurovision entry.

…Jade Ewen has filed for bankruptcy, as she owes “thousands of pounds” in tax?
But life isn’t all dark and gloomy for the former Sugababe; she’s heading to Romania to film her first action movie, “End of a Gun”, alongside none other than Steven Seagal! Maybe now it will finally be her time (Sorry, I just *had* to!)?

We’ll be back next week to find out if you’ve heard stuff!

I'm Norwegian, presently living in Iceland. My mom loves Eurovision, and always let me stay up to watch the contest since before I can remember, so I'm "second generation Eurovision lunatic". My musical god is David Bowie, so I'm obviously not into the stereotypical Eurovision songs. I prefer the rocky/bluesy/jazzy/ethnic songs over schlager and mainstream ballads, though I occasionally surprise myself (and others)... I HATE canned drums and "Cvet Z juga". Photo © Tobias König
