Philip Kirkorov recently got into a huge scandal. The reason was one of the concert numbers of the king of the pop scene on the occasion of the 55th anniversary to the hit “Mary Magdalena”. The audience accused the singer dancing on the cross of insulting the feelings of believers. The artist, two days after the wave of indignation, turned to the offended.
Philip Kirkorov declared himself a believer. He also said that the song “Mary Magdalena” is dedicated to his dead mother.
“I didn’t think that I would offend anyone, and even more so I didn’t deliberately plan to offend anyone’s feelings with my Mary Magdalena number, which was included in the program of my anniversary at the Kremlin Palace and the Oktyabrsky Concert Hall. This song is dedicated to my mother. The day of her departure from life, by a tragic accident, coincides with my birthday, “the artist began his penitent confession.
He noted that he “did not put any evil or blasphemous intent into directing the act.” “For me, as a believer, religious shrines are extremely important and revered. Everything that happened on stage is an exclusively fantasy story that in no way has any connection with an insult to Christianity or another religion. Therefore, if I hurt someone Feelings, I offer my sincere apologies!” added the vocalist.
Recall that actress Maria Shukshina was one of the first to point out the scandalous number of Kirkorov. “The self-styled “King” rages on his cross. But perhaps the most important and pressing question – I would still like to understand. We are talking about a further tour of this demonic show around the country, “the actress burst into an angry rebuke. She herself knows what it means to be at the center of high-profile scandals. Her family was rinsed for many years either because of her eldest son Makar Kasatkin, or because of a tiny grandson Mark, either because of the failed daughter-in-law Freya Zilber, or because of the famous mother Lydia Fedoseeva-Shukshina and her new husband Barry Alibasov.
Meanwhile, the day before it became known that human rights activists appealed to the Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia with the requirement to conduct an audit against Kirkorov. Activists believe that Kirkorov violated a number of articles of the Criminal Code.
