Alexander Rybak struggling with a stalker.
Heaven forbid our beloved artists from things like that! Norwegian singer Alexander Rybak (26), who won Eurovision 4 years ago, has been struggling for some while with a stalker, who is following him to different parts of world and terrorizing him with phone calls. The young man put this experience into his new song “Leave Me Alone“.
“That kind of harassment one can only usually see in movies“, Rybak tells the magazine “Kroonika“. It’s a true story about a woman, who has travelled half the world by following me and stalking me at the hotel doors and other places, where I stay. Altogether I have received 600 e-mails from her and some how she managed to spy out my secret phone number.“
The woman from Israel still calls Rybak these days, but the young man hopes, that now after he has poured his emotions into the song, the insane woman understands where to draw a line.
Besides, on January 19th Alexander can be seen performing in the nightclub “Teater“, to where the magazine “Kroonika“ will draw lots on his Facebook page – tickets for 4 people and exclusive meeting with Rybak!
