La reine d’Autriche Conchita Wurst found herself at the 72nd annual Golden Globes Awards in Beverly Hills over the weekend and the world’s press weren’t just gagging to get her take on fashion. They were also keen to pick her brain on more serious matters, like her attitude toward Vladimir Putin and the recent tragedies in Paris.

Last Thursday the Los Angeles Press Club hosted an  interview session with Miss Wurst and asked whether she is afraid to travel to conservative countries. She answered that she wasn’t afraid at all, and that she would like to meet Putin in the flesh.

A day is not enough. I need a week. I need to understand who this guy is. I need to understand why he makes this kind of decision he does. So I really would love to spend some time with him.

This echoes the sentiments she expressed at the end of 2014.

#JeSuisCharlie

As Europe’s symbol of freedom of expression, Conchita was asked about the terrorist attacks on Charlie Hebdo (note: at the time of her interview, authorities had not yet captured the suspects.) Naturally she was horrified and expressed how important the freedom of expression is to her. She also said that she will never be scared to do what she does.

Conchita’s biggest fear

When the interview turned to the Golden Globes, Conchita was asked what she would wear on the evening. She says her gown is beautiful and that she loves the fashion police, but that she’s scared Kathy Griffin won’t like her outfit.

I agree! Putin don’t care about Conchita! Why did Conchita not do the only main thing make music??

Vladimir Putin doesn’t care about you, Conchita. You have nothing to fear.

Conchita has good reason to fear Kathy Griffin. Here in the United States, there is a show on cable/satellite called Fashion Police, where the panel expresses their opinions about what people wear to award shows and public appearances. Kathy Griffin took over the hosting from Joan rivers when Joan died. Kathy’s sense of humor is, to some people, is caustic. I just hope that the Fashion Police are nice to Conchita!
