When Maria Yaremchuk arrived in London she had two goals: to give a good performance at the London Eurovision Party, and to shop till she dropped at London’s luxury department store Selfridges. We’re happy to report that she can tick both off of her list!
We caught up with the gorgeous Ukrainian in The Penthouse in London’s Leicester Square. She’s incredibly humble and says there is no secret to her beauty. But she’s quick to emphasize that she has not been surgically enhanced. “If I were to be a 60 year old woman and look like this that would be a surprise,” she tells us. “But nevertheless everything is natural.”
Maria also tells us about her song “Tick Tock”, which encourages all y’all to pursue your dreams.
“The main message is that tick tock is the sound of the clock, and the clock never stops,” she says. “Time goes on so you have to understand that your time is now and you shouldn’t waste your time. You should take what you have, take your love in your hands. If you’ve got your real love you should not let go.”
Given the climate in Ukraine, Maria has had a tough road to Eurovision. But she says she’s found strength in music. “It was hard morally because it was like a shock for everybody who lives in Ukraine and all over the world,” she says of the conflict. “But music is the thing which lives forever and it unites people. Actually we have to make music live and it doesn’t depend on the political situation. The art is stronger than politics I guess. It lives forever.”
The team from wiwibloggs.com are thinking of Maria and the people of Ukraine. We love you so much!
