“People think that happiness is when you shine on stage, when you have an enormous amount of supporters and many friends,” says Norwegian Eurovision singer Alexander Rybak. “Yes, it can be so, but you always have to ask at what price?

That girl got my number from one of the dancers – she told the dancer she knows my grandmother and that she has some kind of medicine for her “tells the musician Alexander Rybak about one of his fans, who has bombarded the young man for three years already with daily phone calls and e-mails.

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!

Report from an Estonian fan 🙂
So, here is my report.
We arrived in Solaris center a few minutes before the signing session was to begin and went to the long line, where we met with another girl from Facebook, Kylcella. Alex arrived soon and teenager girls, who weren’t in the line, just stormed to him. Alex looked a bit tired at the beginning and had a kind of sad expression, even while smiling. But soon he looked much better and happier, so, it must be true, what he has always said about the signing sessions – that this is, where he gets his energy from. 🙂 The line was moving very slow because of those teenage girls, who weren’t standing in the line at all, but just pressing through. And the time went fast and the session was about to end – it was set from 16.45-17.30 only and the line was still pretty long . . . We realized with Kylcella, that we have to act more rude now, too, and pressed us through the crowd. The security was doing the best to protect him from fans, on the cost of politeness – they were rude to the crowd . . . happy, that Alex didn’t understand, what they were saying. :S Soon it was told to Alex, that the signing is over, but he looked at the long desperate line and said, he want’s that everyone gets the autograph.
