A Fairytale: “Slattum Bulls” were so pleased with the fact, that Alexander Rybak came to their elementary school Thursday night, that they made him an honorary member of “Slattum Bulls” after the concert.

A star meeting at the end of the course

It’s probably few other 6th graders who have had the pleasure of performing with Alexander Rybak at their own end of course Christmas party!
Outside the gymnasium at Slattum school the torches are lit. The hallway inside is packed – of pupils, teachers, parents, siblings and grandparents, who are eagerly waiting for the doors to the auditorium to open.

Behind the doors Alexander Rybak is sitting, eating gingerbread in the middle of a group of autograph- hungry sixth graders. Some will have a signature on their violin, others will have an autograph on their t-shirt.
It’s only minutes left until six o’clock and Slattum Bulls with Berit Cardas in the lead, let the parents in.

Александр Рыбак презентовал

Alexander Rybak presented three premieres in the center of Kiev!

Ahead of “Halloween” the winner of “Eurovision” and one of the most charming artists of CIS and Europe -Alexander Rybak invited all his friends into the “madhouse” in the city center of Kiev! It’s the club-restaurant “Tolstoy” that has became such a place for one day. At the door of the club the guests were welcomed by crazy men in straightjackets, and inside they have been waiting on a show by the experimenter, Alexander Rybak. The artist presented three premieres at once – the new single, the video, and the new Russian program!

The topics of the evening were preceded by the video shoot for Alexander Rybak’s song “Dostala” (“You’ve driven me up the wall”). In the plot of the video the singer flees to an insane asylum, away from his obsessive female fan, who annoys him by her calls and just pursues him everywhere! And then he manages to leave his maniacal fan in the madhouse, but he leaves it himself for a normal life. The video was filmed with inspiration from real events in the life of the artist!

Article: “Alexander Rybak hopes new single will end his fan trouble”

SLITER MED INNPÅSLITNE FANS: Fiolinisten Alexander Rybak tar nå et oppgjør med en innpåsliten fan i sin nye låt «Leave Me Alone». Foto: Steinar Buholm / Dagbladet

Since winning Eurovision in 2009, you’d have thought Alexander Rybak had quite literally lived the fairytale. With fame however, comes attention, some of it most unwanted. Rybak’s newest single, out tomorrow, tells of the nightmare he has been experiencing lately with an obsessed fan trying to get too close.

Since his Eurovision victory, young charmer Alexander Rybak has remained in the spotlight through his participation in high profile shows, such as Let’s Dance in Sweden. His name has been linked to various women in the tabloid press with rumours of romance, most of which has been welcome attention. Lately however, Rybak has been tortured by an extremely obsessive female fan who has badgered the star day and night, making his life hell.

The girl in question travels around the world in an effort to get close to her idol, apparently even turning up on Rybak’s front doorstep! He has been swamped by over 600 e-mails from the amorous fan and has been forced to obtain an unlisted phone number, which, rather disturbingly, the troublesome fan manages to get hold of time and time again. The persistent girl still calls Rybak at least thirty times a day, and even more so at night, making it difficult for the star to get rest after a hard day’s work.Rybak has spoken openly about the ordeal through both his Facebook page and official website.

His newest single is aptly entitled Leave Me Alone and is scheduled for international release tomorrow, the 12th of October. The troubled singer states on his official fan page that he wonders even whether or not the girl in question will realise the song is about her. Hopefully she’ll get the rather unsubtle hint and give poor Rybak some breathing space!

‎29 sep 2012 Meet&Greet in Kiev, Ukraine

What a day!
Well, I’ve been thinking all the time, how lucky we are!  Alex so often comes to Ukraine and we have an opportunity to meet him again!
I knew from FB that Alex came to Kiev on shooting. So when I went to work on saturday morning I brought my old camera. Thanks to Yana and Julia, the meeting was held in a small, cozy cafe near the hotel “Riviera” where Alex usually stays.
It’s tradition to come to meeting with gifts. When we were discussing gifts, I offered to give him a picture from all of us. I worked to 8, and then I decided to take a taxi, pick up the picture from home and then fly to the cafe.

The winner of “Eurovision” went to a mental hospital

The fact that the stars are besieged by fans is well-known. Sometimes fans’ love can be so obsessive that artists have to change their phone numbers, addresses, and even call the police. And fans love brought the popular singer, winner of “Eurovision 2009” Alexander Rybak to the mental hospital.

Fortunately, just for fun. Sasha just decided to explain to girls with a song and music video that shows fanaticism is not always good. A few days ago in Kiev the shooting of the video for the new Rybak’s single “Leave me Alone” («Ты достала меня”) took place. They shot at once two versions of the video – English and Russian ones. The fan-girl of the artist, who tries too zealously to prove her love to him, prompted him with an idea of the new video and the song.

Last weekend the 2009 Eurovision winner Alexander Rybak and the amazing Paula Seling, the number 3 at the 2010 ESC, visited Belgium on the occasion of the Closing Ceremony of the 2012 Antwerp Pride.

During this concert also other main stars appeared such as 2Unlimited and Kate Ryan. However during the concert from the reactions of the public it became very clear that the biggest star of the event was Alexander Rybak whilst Paula Seling was the biggest surprise to the audience because of her great vocal abilities which were very impressive!

After the concert both Paula Seling and Alexander Rybak gave a number of interviews to the national and international press present. On Monday both artists were a special guest at the very popular afternoon show ‘Studio TVL’ on Belgian channel TV-Limburg where they performed their duet ‘I’ll show you’ next to Alexander’s winning song from Eurovision. However it was revealed during the tv-show that both artists keep the door open for Eurovision 2013. Whilst Alexander said he is interested to return to the 2013 Eurovision as a composer (so not as a performer), Paula left the door open to return as an artist. She stated that many fans had asked for her return to Eurovision. Alexander stated in his pleasant way that you should never doubt or discuss the opinion of a Eurovision fan!

Rybak records new music video for russian release

In a video like you’ve never seen him before, Alexander Rybak dusts down his 2010 release Oah, giving it a brand new music video intended for the Russian speaking market.

The single Oah was originally included on his follow up album to Fairytale, No Boundaries and released way back in June, 2010 in an English language version. It was a moderate hit in Norway, making number 23 on the charts. This latest video to accompany Oah was not previously released in Norway, filming having only been completed in the spring where it was filmed in Ukraine. The newest release is the first of a number of Russian language projects in the pipeline, as Alexander Rybak recognizes that Russia and Eastern Europe are two very important markets for his career.
