YO!Mag correspondent Christos Zervas interviews…
Helena Paparizou, 33, a Greek-Swedish musician, won the Eurovision song contest in 2005 representing Greece and was voted as the 4th best entry ever. Since 1999 and her breakthrough in the Scandinavian & Balkan music stage (as a part of the group ai???Antiqueai???), she has become an ambassador of two different cultures within Europe.
I always felt very European ai??i?? even before the contest. The Eurovision Song Contest is a beautiful festival, where we can celebrate European music. I believe that everybody in the contest participates as a very proud European, representing his/her country. Europe is our home and our common love.
2. How much your different origins influence you?
As a Swedish born Greek (born and raised in Sweden from Greek parents), ever since I was a kid, I was always into pop music. But in my home, my parents were listening also Greek traditional music. So the folklore will always be in my blood. And as you know, music is not only what you prefer, but also a lifestyle.

This is a very tricky and difficult question. I could go on for days. The only thing for sure, is that I would like to take away the troubles and problems each country has. But however I love both Sweden and Greece as my homeland and I adore the people especially for their differences.
4. Who are the three persons you would invite for an ideal dinner and why?
Melina Merkouri for her temperament, Sophia Vergara for her humor and Annika Lantz for the way she sees everything in life. It would be an amazing girls night out with a lot of ai???in depthai??? discussions and a lot of laughs. What do you say, you want to join?
5. When you were a child, what was your biggest dream?
To do what I am doing today.
6. Who/what is your inspiration?
I get inspired with everything. And I like to be impulsive. I actually get inspired even from the sad things. I get inspired from people and life every day.
7. What is your worst fear? To die alone
8. Which is your favorite European city and why?
I have a lot of different favorite places because I have experienced wonderful moments in every cityai??i?? Athens for its pulse and history, Stockholm for its beauty and serenity, Barcelona for Gaudi, Berlin for its cult, Copenhagen for its design, Milan for my shopping, Ascona for its breathtaking scenery. I have been in so many cities and I am sure that I have only experienced a very small percentage of Europeai??i??s beauty. And I will continue to explore new places. I am European and I love Europe.

So, I guess I might have a few of them (laughs) usually I talk too much and laugh too loud! 10. What would be the main message you would like to give to Europeai??i??s young generation? To love and respect others as much as they love and respect themselves.
