The delusional fan from Israel has been stalking Alexander Rybak for a few years. The musician answered her insinuations with a video, in which he appears in a straight jacket, showing to the woman that she sent the boy to the mental hospital.

Alexander asks the fan “don’t call me anymore” in the chorus of the song.  And, by the irony of fate, the lady called him exactly during the presentation of the video

Winner of the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest, Norwegian singer of the Belarusian origin Alexander Rybak told the finalists of the TV music project Eurofest (national selection of the Eurovision) to take the contest as a holiday. The artist gave a press conference in Minsk on 5 January.

“The most importantthing is to take the contest as a holiday and forget about the victory, you should enjoy the process. It rarely happens that all things go as planned. Therefore, you should thoroughly prepare for both Eurofest and Eurovision and when you come to the big stage you should never forget why you are there. Some people forget,” the artist said. Besides, it is very important that the team of a participant thinks about the country it represents first, not about personal interests as it often happens at Eurovision. The team should work for the common purpose.

Alexander Rybak praised the high level of the Eurofest music show. He regretted that the group Thriller who did a great show did not make it to the final. He gave tips to each finalist of the show. Alexander Rybak noted the catchy melody of the song We are the Heroes of the group Litesound and said that he even sang it in the shower a day before. “A trendy song, good English,” he said. Gunesh has a charming smile and a strong voice, Alexander Rybak said. Alena Lanskaya is definitely vocally gifted. Alexander Rybak recommended her to make the music more quiet to emphasize her voice. Viktoria Aleshko, according to Alexander Rybak, has the strongest voice among all the finalists.
