The great Bregvadze is forced to silence2010-12-15 14:35
To sing or not to sing in Moscow? The question became really a Hamlet's one for Georgian singer Nani Bregvadze. On one hand, she has performed many times in Russia after the tragic August 2008, including this December, but on the other hand, the concert planned to be held at the cultural center at University named after Bauman has drawn a negative response of the Georgian media and now the star-singer is obviously scared of being hunted down again. Will she go on her daughter and Georgian officials' leash or will she fulfill her commitments to the performance sponsors, making her Russian fans happy?
making her Russian fans happy?
Nani Bregvadaze has made a fool of herself. She is beating up and down like an 18-year-old girl before her first concert, while the point at issue is just a short performance at the cultural center at the Technical University named after Bauman in Moscow.
Today Bregvadze was ashamed to admit to a RIA Novosti journalist that she is afraid of a scandal. "I don't want to comment on anything or just discuss it with journalists. Please do not get me wrong, I've grown very much tired of this story. Has anything terrible happened?" - she just said, without even stating whether the concert will take place.
The terrible thing is that the singer was forced to refuse to sing, which she admitted quite clearly. "I must ask the ministry whether I've got the right to do that and whether I'm doing anything wrong; I will clear up the matter today", - she told the Georgian reporters. On the same day, she refused to sing at Moscow education institution.
It looks like the People's Artist of the USSR and Georgia has lost her inner power that has always put her above the officials from Rustaveli Avenue.
Perhaps, the problem is that Nani got no support from her family. Her daughter Eka Mamaladze had told the journalists before the singer's commentary that the posters about her recital named "Voice of the Heart" at the Bauman University were just a trick. "There is no concert planned to be given by Nani Bregvadze in Moscow. Someone must be viciously using the singer's name", - she said.
In an hour, the mother was already refuting her daughter's words: "This information is correct. I reckoned I should not refuse to sing, for there will be students and professors, so I was told the concert had no political meaning".
