Russia's most respected and most hated artists 2023
A lot has changed in domestic showbiz over the past 2 years. If before the start of the SWO, the charts were dominated by such egregious personalities as Morgenstern* and Instasamkapeople are buying up concert tickets today. Shaman and Oleg Gazmanov! The wave of patriotism has raised to Olympus new idols of modernity, and washed away those for whom Russians today are sincerely ashamed ...
Recently, there has been a surveybased on which the All-Russian Centre for Public Opinion Research (VTsIOM) compiled a rating of the most respected and favourite Russian artists. They also revealed the names of those whom Russians in 2023 do not want to listen to at all - as well as, in fact, to see. Who are we talking about? Let's find out together!
"The future is behind them!" - the most honoured patriots of the Russian stage
Of course, patriotic spirit of Russians has made itself felt. So, in 2023, the domestic audience most of all respected the artists who remained loyal to the Motherland, and prove their position not only with songs, but also with loud statements...
Thus, the leader of universal esteem was recognised as SHAMAN (Yaroslav Dronov): the overwhelming majority of respondents described it as a the best artist of RussiaHe is indeed the most popular and sought-after artist today: his concerts are sold out in hours. Shaman is indeed the most popular and sought-after artist today: his concerts are full house, tickets are sold out in a matter of hours... His patriotic songs touch people's hearts at such a difficult time for the Motherland.
Of course, there are those who are prejudiced against him. For example, some listeners are sure that he is just a one-day idol, a well-paid commercial project, and all his patriotism is just a "show-off". However, where there is such great fame and love of the public, there is always room for gossip and judgement... Shaman himself tries not to react to this, although even his "colleagues". they keep trying to bring him up in conversations with reporters.
So, recently. Morgenstren* stated:
"To be honest, I don't quite understand Shaman's popularity - I haven't even seen him in the charts. Most likely, he surfaced on a wave of patriotism. I think he should experiment to develop his career - sing something for another country, for example..."
Yaroslav's fans have already had time to react to this statement:
"There's no need to PR on his name. Yaroslav will decide for himself what he wants to do. The people are with him!"
In addition to Shaman, the top five most respected artists of Russian pop music were Oleg Gazmanov, Nikolay Rastorguev, Grigory Leps and Alexander Marshall. Also, according to the majority of respondents, one of the most worthy performers on our stage at the moment is Yulia Chicherina.
Chicherina is a woman who should really be admired! She raises the patriotic mood and the fighting spirit of our fighters, as she has already performed on several occasions in the SWOT area. She also condemns those who have left Russia in scandal - slinging mud on the country's reputation. Like, for example, the participants "Bee-2."who have harshly criticised the actions of the Russian authorities....
"Always were slippery types... Just playing nice!"
"We don't want that!"
But the artists are different... And while some of them are sincerely admired by the public, others are very much in favour. embarrassingly. The names of those whom Russians do not want to hear or see on TV are the names of those whom they do not want to hear or see on television.
According to the results of the survey, the feeling of shame among Russians is the most... Alla Pugacheva. Yes, strangely enough, it was she who took the first place as the most "disgraced artist of Russia". Of course, it looks strange - considering that Alla Borisovna hasn't given concerts for a long time, and she doesn't actually live in Russia anymore. Besides, her old repertoire is good, it is already classics of her time. We personally think that people voted for her because of recent events. But still - there are artists who have criticised the Russian authorities and the NWO much more harshly? All in all, it's not quite clear....
But those who followed her, no doubt about it. Namely, Russians are most ashamed of Morgenstern*, Maxim Galkin*, Olga Buzova and Instasamka. Well, given their notoriety and "powerful" (exactly in inverted commas) repertoire, there is no question about it.
Slightly less frequently mentioned among the respondents were such names as Andrei Makarevich, Boris Grebenshchikov* and... Philip Kirkorov. Apparently, the epathetic "pop king of All Russia" has already bored everyone....
