On May 30, just four days after winning Eurovision 2012, Loreen flew to London to appear on BBC Breakfast—Britain’s most-watched morning news program. It’s taken several weeks, but a kind soul somewhere out there has finally uploaded the interview clip to YouTube for all y’all outside of the U.K. In the segment, which you can […]
Vebooboo hasn’t written anything for a few weeks, but the news that we aren’t going to Stockholm for Eurovision 2013 has dragged me out of my pseudo-retirement ruul ruul quickly.
