He’s only 25 years old, but has already conquered Europes music stage.  When he won Eurovision Song Contest he opened the door for a career. Special for the readers of Exclusive interview with Alexander Rybak!
[T] You performed on Polish TV, you gave a concert, you met your Polish fans…Do you like our country?
[A]lex: I love Poland as a country. Polish people are awesome, warm people. And you wear nice jeans!

T: Many of your fans are in love with you. Is your heart free right now?
A: My heart has never been free. Especially now, when I met th most wonderful girl of all.

T:What kind of girls do you like?
A: I like few Polish models and Natalie Portman. But mostly I like my girlfriend – she’s number 1! I try to meet her every month, sadly we don’t live in the same city…

T: You’re the ESC winner. Poland has bad luck and we always lose. What do you like in the contest, what would you change?
A: Try to make your chosen song more naughty! Try some new types, have fun and invite me as a judge next year, please 😀
T: How did Eurovision change your life?
After ESC I’ve got many more possibilities. I always liked to work on small projects – now I can make beautiful projects in the whole of Europe. I travel a lot, I have met amazing people and great musicians.

T: You’ve recorded four CDs. When will be the next one?
A: Well, I made only two albums in English. Now I would like to work on individual songs.  I’m especially interested in duets. Maybe you could find me a young Polish artist? 😉

T: What’s your inspiration?
A: My greatest inspirations come to me, when I’m alone. When I’m with people, I love to give. But when I’m alone in the mountains, then I take.

T: What’s your hobby, except for music?
A: My hobby nr 1 in this world are video games: Mario, Tekken, Halo, Zelda, Donkey Kong… I love good stories! If only I could have more time for other games…

T: Do you owe your success to your parents, who are also musicians? 
A: I owe my childhood to wonderful parents. They thought, that everything is useful one step forward. You can make a break sometimes, when you have more time, realize it later.
