Måneskin Zitti e buoni Italy Eurovision 2021

On Saturday evening the Twittersphere was alight with allegations that Måneskin’s Damiano David had used drugs in the Eurovision 2021 green room. This was based on some rather scant “evidence”: a video showed the singer leaning down at his table during the voting segment. It was also informed, perhaps, by unfair stereotypes about people involved in rock music.

Well it’s time to turn down the drama and to turn up “Zitti e buoni.” The EBU has now confirmed that Damiano has passed his drug test with flying colours.

This is the official statement from the EBU:

“Following allegations of drug use in the Green Room of the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final on Saturday 22 May, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), as requested by the Italian delegation, has conducted a thorough review of the facts, including checking all available footage. A drug test was also voluntarily undertaken earlier today by the lead singer of the band Måneskin which has returned a negative result seen by the EBU.

No drug use took place in the Green Room and we consider the matter closed.

We are alarmed that inaccurate speculation leading to fake news has overshadowed the spirit and the outcome of the event and unfairly affected the band.

We wish to congratulate Måneskin once again and wish them huge success. We look forward to working with our Italian member Rai on producing a spectacular Eurovision Song Contest in Italy next year.”

On Sunday Damiano hit back at rumours alleging he was seen using drugs in the Eurovision Green Room. At the Eurovision winner’s press conference, the frontman firmly told media, “I don’t use drugs.”

He added: “[Måneskin guitarist] Thomas broke a glass. I don’t use drugs, please guys. Please don’t say that.” His comments were met with applause, and he went on to add, “Please don’t say that. But really, no cocaine. Don’t say that.”

The group also posted on their Instagram stories, again refuting the claim and emphasising their anti-drugs stance:

“We are really shocked about what some people are saying about Damiamo doing drugs. We really are AGAINST drugs and we never used cocaine. We are ready to get [tested], cause we have nothing to hide. We are here to play our music and we are so happy about our Eurovision win and we wanna thank everyone for supporting us. Rock’n Roll never dies. We love you.”

I’m surprised the lyrics of the song didn’t cause more controversy. Maybe no one noticed as it’s in Italian, but according to this translation https://www.google.com/search?q=maneskin+lyrics+zitti+e+buoni&oq=maneskin+ly&aqs=chrome.2.69i57j0i131i433j0l8.5221j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 it includes the word f**k, as well as mentioning drug dealers and saying there’s no God. Not that I find any of this offensive, but all three of these are surely Eurovision firsts?

For some reason Italy and France like to jeer each other. I think it’s quite normal in a brotherly relationship and these two countries do have that kind of relationship. As an Italian I can just say that Barbara Pravi wrote a beautiful song and had a magical staging. I love Voilà and hope to see a french entry that has the same success, or even more, next year. Can’t wait for next year

I still don’t get why people say the French started it. We didn’t. Italy won fair and square, they deserve their victory 100% ! And we are all really and genuinely happy with that 2nd place… (and we were never first. Switzerland was way ahead of us with the jury points, we actually thought their song was more appreciated than ours, so there was no way for us to be disappointed with the results… It was a big surprise. And a very pleasant one.) End of story. Yes, a stupid French journalist said Italy should be disqualified if found guilty.… Read more »

I haven’t heard about that, just the comments from Ludwig Galea (ESC 2004) on similar topics. It’s no secret that there were ads for “Je me casse” on YouTube and sponsored posts promoting the entry in international mainstream media (not Eurovision fan media, as far as I know). If you have a link to the former HoD’s accusation, we would be interested to see it! 🙂

I don’t know what Paris Match wrote, but they are by no means representative of the French press.

And in the digital age, they would be ready for anything to still exist. Don’t give to them more important than they deserve.

Hate is such a strong word and I wish it was stopped being used like this. I know even two ESC-song this year used the word this way. Some people might dislike others and spread very mean things about other people. The ones who always press like are called followers. The opposite should be called dislikes or similar. Hate crime is not even near disliking. Hating someone is detesting them with your whole body. Getting strong negative feelings about them etc. It does not belong here. Using there kind of words about people who dislike some people is making sure… Read more »

Actually also the EBU didn’t help at all. Saying that we are going to investigate, it is like implying a crime was committed. They didn’t say we are going to look at it, or just quickly check the many CCTV, I am sure, they had.
It was quicker Damiano to return to Italy and take a test, than the EBU check the CCTV. Plus Damiano offered to take a test, the same day of the victory, but EBU said no. SO I guess EBU handled this in a very bad way.
