From the Daily Star to The Huffington Post, everyone has been reporting that Conchita Wurst may appear on the UK’s Celebrity Big Brother. But the Eurovision 2014 winner has revealed exclusively to wiwibloggs.com that she will not enter the Big Brother house.

Conchita spoke with wiwiblogger Deban Aderemi on the red carpet at this year’s London Pride in Trafalgar Square, and she could not have been clearer: “No. I’m not going to do Big Brother.”

She also suggested that performing at gay pride events across Europe has been really heartwarming. “I love it,” she says. “It is always like coming home actually. We’re a big family. It’s cheesy but it’s true.”

And what about her next single? “I don’t know yet. We will see. Give me a bit of time.”

She should focus on music – not “gay activism”…..

I read this, do not like to comment a discussion like this too, but must say I don’t think it sounds like understanding the music industry. Sounds on the contrary do not totally understand about music industry today

I’d hate to pepper up a discussion, but Laurel S totally understands the complexities and challenges of the music industry today. Yes, I would like to hear more music from Conchita Wurst, but I’d much rather wait for a quality offering. This takes time.
Ideally, she should re-release ‘That’s What I Am’ internationally in the meantime.

@ Pat: HAHA! As if you have talked to all Conchita fans 😀 In my country we use to say “A good thing is worth waiting”. And was no way comparing Conchita to Adele, I took Adele only as an example to express how some artists make their music and albums with a big cautiousness and love because they don’t want to betray their fans with crap. Conchita is the best thing that has happened to the ESC for a long time, imao.

@Timo: Honestly, to me that sounded like a joke, because how she put it and because, well, three singles in three years? That’s no way to make an album. @JayESC: Making an album or making sure you have another single ready before going to Eurovision is not a requirement. Eesh. Also, if there wasn’t going to be a new single or album, why would she tell everybody she’s working on it? She’d still get invited to all the gay prides this summer because of who she is, so it’s not because of that. @ESCFan: And you know she’s not got… Read more »

I don’t agree. The song is already forgotten and of course professional artists could pic up songs for an album in some few weeks but professionals do it before participating on ESC and there’s what Music Business is about. And ues massproduction too cause every single year there is new participating artist in ESC and each year a new winner. Conchita is not in the near of Adele and an album in the end of the year is too late, not interest and accepted of most of the fans!

@Alex. It has not disappeared anywhere. Do you think an artist could pick up songs for an album just like that in just a few weeks? I think she wants to do a perfect work – just like Adele who only releases an album every second year. Music business is not a mass production. I think if she’ll release her album by the end of this year, it will be all acceptable and you should undestand it, too.

If Conchita did Big Brother it would be the end of her career.
I hope she has some people making a short list of songs for her next single. She can’t leave it too long.

Conchita won Eurovision for two mounths ago! i think he’s not a professional artist with a team backing up his musical career so he’s not smart and when Austria host ESC there is new artists and he will be a one hit wonder !

She’s being incredibly smart about her career choices. Big Brother would have been an idiotic choice and a huge step backwards (it’s trash, let’s face it). And, as far as a single goes, leave the poor woman alone. She won Eurovision 5 minutes ago and has barely had time to breath since with all the TV shows she’s been on and the concerts. Pride season will soon be over, as will summer concert season – then she’ll have some time to work on a new single before the insanity that Eurovision is hits again. Don’t forget, she’s going to have… Read more »

If Conchita were to enter the CBB house, Tom would essentially be coming in there with her. Unless she did what La Toya Jackson did and have her own room with her own hair and makeup each morning!

Hi hi a little bit of time? Conchita has have much time b e f o r e ESC to found out next single! But to be honest s h e is not a musician and give a damn of music! There will not be a next single nor more song, the important is to be on red carpet at pride!

I think it would have been a great move for Conchita to appear on CBB. I think the problem is that Conchita would hardly be able to remain in Conchita mode throughout the whole series. I bet it takes a while everyday before she looks like conchita

Nothing wrong with being a gay celebrity. Also she gets paid a good bit for these gay pride appearances!!!

Actually she mentioned in interviews before she won Eurovision, that her plan was to release singles periodically. So not a full album, but singles because she wants to try different genres. However now that she won and is getting a lot of attention, maybe she is inspired to work on a full album (i’m sure a lot of producers want to work with her now).

It’s been just a month and change since she won. She’s hardly disappeared, and making an album takes time. Here’s the thing. Since she did not have an album ready before she went to Eurovision, she now has three options: – She clumps together an album in a hurry right now, picking whatever, and it turns out not very good (as rushed albums do). At which point she’s a one-hit wonder with “Rise Like a Phoenix” and falls to obscurity. – She doesn’t put an album out at all (she’s already stated she’s working on one, but humour me).
