RUSSIA – Roskomnadzor — Russia’s state telecommunications stated they will investigate the MUZ TV awards and the red carpet following the extravagant appearances of Philip Kirkorov and other artists and celebrities.
Kirkorov and rapper DAVA evoked a same-sex couple about to walk down the aisle together, surrounded by eight shirtless muscular men, looking like the sort of entertainers (someone can call them strippers).
TikTok star Danya Milokhin was wearing an outfit that was a fun pink dress on one side and a sharply cut black tuxedo on the other side.
Blogger Igor Sinyak brought elegance to the red carpet by wearing a black gown featuring a long ruffled train.
THE AUTHORITIES STATED (under the 2013 law upon gay propaganda)
In the meantime, Svetlana Loboda sacked Natella Krapivina (her producer and director) over the comments made against Kirkorov calling his red carpet appearance with rapper DAVA as a freak show mentioning that “back in the old days in the Caucasus, this kind of people were killed”, apologising for her former colleague comments.
Kirkorov, while outlining that Natella copied a Beyonce appearance in a Lobobda’s clip, got numerous support messages from celebrities and artists such as Little Big’s Sonya, Melovin and Natalia Gordienko.
Natella Krapivina admitted that her comment was extremely harsh, she announced her withdrawal from the Russian showbiz and accused Kirkorov of having a group of untalented artists around him and that she intended no probe to LGBT community, claiming that it all comes from Kirkorov’s bitterness from Loboda’s constant refusal to collaborate with him.
This comes as bad news for ZIVERT who was tipped to collaborate with Kirkorov’s DREAM TEAM in Eurovision 2022 as the artist “liked” Krapivina’s initial comment about killing the freaks in the Caucasus.
