Hit-parade of the most epathetic artists of Russian show business - part two
In today's article, we continue to highlight the names of colorful and extraordinary individuals who have stormed the Russian pop with their charisma and truly alien image! Quirky for some, ridiculous for others - one way or another, these artists have gained a solid fan base and often shine on television! They may not be brilliant performers (for the most part), but they are always interesting to watch! And what would we do without them? We would probably be bored... Who are we talking about? We suggest to find out together...
In compiling the continuation of our top "Russian freaks." We relied on the comments from the first part, so we are sure that many of our readers will be interested.
About Boris Moiseev we could rant for a very long time. He has always been an interesting personality - from the very beginning of his creative path. He was born in Mogilev, in a women's penal colony. The boy had no father, his mother was a political prisoner, who later died tragically... It was to her that Boris dedicated his song "Deaf-mute love.".
An orphan boy from a small town. Boris's prospects were not the best. Perhaps because of the desire to escape to a better life, and maybe because of inner feelings, but Moiseyev decided to connect himself with the art, namely with dancing. He danced in theaters, made his way to fame - and international fame. Over the years of his "theatrical wanderings," Boris created a dance trio "Expression"with whom he performed in France, Italy and even the USA! And then, over time, he got useful acquaintances, a big name and a solo career.....
I guess it's hard to forget those PerformancesMoiseyev organized for the audience at his concerts. Even though not everyone liked him, there was something special, beautiful, light and relaxed about him. Perhaps for this he was loved by thousands of people.
Oh, poor thing. Philip Bedrosovich! Perhaps, there is no other artist on the Russian stage, about which would be judged as lively. "Filka." - as his anti-fans ironically call him, has long been the star of memes, jokes and fables. And how can it be? The king of our pop music, after all!
In many ways, Kirkorov gained his widespread fame through connections, and in particular the to marry a diva. By the way: at that point, his style was ordinary (not counting the disheveled hair). And then it started 90s - Philip began to actively pull up to the trends: to experiment with image, with songs, with lyrics and clips... With the onset of the noughties (and especially closer to the 2020s) Philip Bedrosovich surpassed not only himself, but also young competitors.
Gradually, Kirkorov became the brightest and most discussed star of the Russian pop music scene: he would come on stage in feathers, and then with Trump the paparazzi will catch him at the banquet... Well, the King is supposed to live a bohemian lifestyle.
No sooner had the Russian public moved away from the epatage of the 90s, than in the early noughties, an artist appeared on stage, about whom one could say only that "alien"The speech, as many might have guessed by now, was about a speech. The speech, as many might have already guessed, was about Vitas. Since childhood, Vitaly (the artist's real name) has been drawn to art - he even learned Michael Jackson's dance moves as a child! For a while he worked in the theater, and then moved to Moscow, where he began to gain connections and got a producer.
His first and overall biggest accomplishment was a hit "Opera No. 2." - a composition that is still remembered to this day (in fact, it is difficult to forget such a thing). The singer's extraordinary, completely unique vocal data impressed the public - and not only the Russian public. Vitas is particularly revered in Chinawhere the artist has his own home.
We don't know if Leontief can be considered to the obvious "freaks"Whether he is just a bright and charismatic man, we thought he would harmoniously complement our article. His unusual eccentric image, as well as songs with ambiguous hints, testify to the fact that he has always strived to "stand out from the crowd".
Valery from childhood adored everything that is connected with creativity: drawing, singing and, of course, dancing. However, what's most interesting is that as he grew older, he realized that he wanted to become a . oceanologist! Alas, but there was no money for training, and therefore about the dream had to forget and go to work. Like many of his colleagues on stage, in his early years Valery tried a lot of professions and part-time jobs - from turner and letter carrier to tailor and tester!
For years Valery sang in various ensembles, performed in clubs and at festivals. And when the time came 90s - he was able to throw off all the shackles and just create authentic performances at his concerts! As a result, he was loved by many....
Okay, now a moment of clarification: yes, we know it's a non-musician and not a performer. Yes, we realize that this figure doesn't quite fit into this selection - but that's how you look at it! One of our readers left this man's name in the comments under the first partand when we decided to get acquainted with this person, we realized that we just couldn't not discuss her! Not a person, but a walking performance!
Andrei Bartenev is known as a painter and sculptor, designer, fashion designer, and TV host! But, as we all realize, fame came to him not only because he is a genius in any craft. He is simply bright and epathetic, and as we all know - the public such personalities attract. And the media often write about him, so his name has gained such weight.
As a child, Andrei dreamed of learning strumbut his family didn't have the means to give the child a proper education. When he grew up, he set off on the voyage of life, as they say. He studied to be a theater director, and in the late 80's began to build a career.
Fame has caught up with our hero in the 90swhen he unveiled his performance art piece called "Botanical Ballet."He was awarded the Grand Prix at the Riga Festival. Soon his name became recognizable abroad, including in America. Not only his works, but also Andrei himself is a "walking work of art" - you can't argue with that.
