Also, the reporter asked the singer how she refers to the “black list” of artists in Ukraine.
“I always say that artists are children. The children of the devil knows what to throw. And artists, too. They are so cut off from all real. And you can’t touch children and artists. They are not adequately perceived. And these children, in some lists… well, where?! If they got somewhere, only because I don’t know what’s going on”.

In the 90s I saw a man, who instead of shoes was in the winter of Newspapers. The transition was very difficult. I am in politics do not understand, but if you join the EU… I know that any transition is very difficult. We went through it. In Latvia ten years was poverty. But today we are happy,” she added.
