Molly Smitten-Downes—the UK’s Eurovision 2014 singer—is already a household name among Eurovision fans. But if she’s being honest, she doesn’t really care about being famous. That’s one reason why she never pursued talent shows like the X Factor and The Voice.

“The whole fame thing is not something I’m really that bothered about,” she told wiwiblogger Deban Aderemi at the London Eurovision Party. “Those kind of shows are great if you want to be a pop star.”

Wiwi snapped this photo of Molly working sexy lace-up boots. Clearly starstruck, Deban had to wear sunglasses….

Miss Molly is much more concerned about writing good music than she is with being recognized on the street. “I feel like more of a songwriter…The problem with those shows is that you’re there as a singer. I feel like I sing things best when I’ve written them.”

Well it’s really obvious she wrote “Children of the Universe” because she sings it so damn well. Just Michael Fassbender and and Hugh Jackman—two of the stars who recently recorded an episode of the Graham Norton Show with Molly. “I was like, ‘Oh my god, this is crazy!’ They were so lovely though. It was the first sort of big, live TV show I’ve done, so I was quite nervous. But they were all so nice.”

Dan,

Just because you care about fame, doesn’t mean everybody else does. Stop being such a drama queen. Not wanting fame is normal, not innocent – Most people don’t want constant attention.

I thought these were thoughtful questions and elicited some very interesting answers, but I do wish the interviewer (Deban) wouldn’t keep interrupting with personal asides. Molly was visibly embarrassed when Deban cut her off just to comment on how he felt about the way she was talking to him. Anyway, thank you wiwibloggs for this insightful interview!

Pixy Turkish diaspora will support heavily Azerbaijan. Every year they do it. As for Armenia, its diaspora across Europe which is huge will vote for Armenia this year very strongly as they are the hot favorite. As for corruption, I think everyone knows… 😉
Did I cover it up?

@Xaris Turkey isn’t even in contest this year what the hell are you talking about? And what have Armenians to do with bribes and diaspora votes? Don’t you see differences between Armenians and Azeris? Was Armenia a favorite last year and did they end up in the top 3? And two years ago.. let me ask you, where are those powerful diaspora people were? Probably in hibernation? Why didn’t they care about Emmy? Wake up! Many things have changed in ESC so stop spreading bs.

I’d like to see her winning but it’s very difficult. It’s still political. Other than that, you’ll see guys that Turkish and Armenian diaspora across Europe will make miracles. Shame on them. Not to mention the bribe…. 🙁
