News-update Lenna #2

Lenna at Psühholoogia Sinule

"I'm sick of feeling guilty!", Lenna says on the cover of the magazine Psühholoogia Sinule [Engl.: Psychology for you], where she really opened her soul to the public. She tells that she has lost her inner peace currently and has become almost paranoid.

The main topic of her interview shows that she has thought a lot lately. It was concerning children and a family. Some happenings of this year (e.g. the vocal cords surgey right after the Eesti Laul 2012) were decisive for this and opened her eyes.
"I think it is nice when people have children and assume the families. [...] I would be delighted if it happened to me one day.", Lenna tells.
Personally, she thinks that it wouldn't be a problem to have children and care for the own career.

Her former mates Keit Triisa (backgroundsinger in 2010) and Maarja Kivi (alias Marya Roxx) might be two good examples for her.

On Suurproblem's Photobucket-channel you can see the screenshots.

Lenna will play in Aku Louhimies' new Film

As the film "Vuosaari" [Engl.: Naked Harbour] was very successful in its producing country Finland, the producer Aku Louhimies has now finished the script on another movie. "Elävvien Kirjoihin" [Engl.: Living Books] will be released in winter in January 2013.
Lenna once told in an interview that she was chosen for Viivi in "Vuosaari" because the producer liked what she does, so it's no wonder that he chose her for this movie again. She will play the role of a woman who is named Anna.

"You can sort this movie into a love story", Louhimies tells to the Estonian magazine Postimehe. The producing places were Helsinki and Kuopios in Finland and Lissabon in Portugal. It was inspired by Marko Kilpi's detective novel.

News-update Katrin

Cooperation with Jana Kask:

Since May 2012 the Estonian musician Jana Kask, you might remember from the Eesti Laul 2011 ["I Don't wan't anything"], has had a new stylist manager: Katrin Siska.
Today it was official that the cooperation between the two has ended. Katrin shortly explained the end of the cooperation in the following way: "Sadly I turned out to be Jana Kask's fifth manager. Our cooperation was difficult and ended in the same way as the cooperation with her former manager. Perhaps a horrible end is better than a never-ending nightmare!"

At first Katrin was very happy about this cooperation and saw lots of good chances and possibilities for Jana. She loved the work with her and she as person. Even more sad is such an end now.

Having asked Jana herself about this she answered us: "She wasn't my stylist and has never been. :) All, what I have done until now, I have done by myself. She has simply helped me with the project Miss Jillion in technical questions."

Jana Kask, presents herself with the new name Miss Jillion, her debut-single "Miljon" [Engl.: Million] was written by Katrin and her.

In mid-july of this year, Katrin Siska, has finally graduated her law-studies at the Technical University of Tallinn (TTÜ). She wrote her dissertation about: "Personality of public life within the conflict between data privacy protection and freedom of the press"

Biggest congratulations Katrin and all the best for the future! :)

Back to School

Lately Katrin Siska who is now the head of the biggest culture centre of Tallinn, the Lindakivi Culture Center, talked to the Estonian fashion magazine Buduaar [Engl.: Boudoir] and remembered her schooldays.

From her official biography we know that Katrin was Piret's classmate and a very, very good student. "At school I liked music, arts, maths and languages - Estonian, Russian, English and German language.", says Katrin who speaks also French and learns Spanish.
As a good student Katrin liked almost everything at school the only thing which annoyed her was IT because of her teacher. She remembers: "I didn't like IT, because of teacher. IT teacher was an old sweaty man, who smoked and didn't hear properly. Every time someone asked something he came really close to explain it. That's why noone didn't want to aske anything."
This is understandable for Katrin who generally doen't and doesn't like to smoke.

Belated news: Piret at the 'Computer Games Night'

On Saturday April 7th, 2012 the singer Piret Järvis hosted the 'Computer Games Night: R U There', which took place at the 'Sõprus'-cinema. 

"Looking at a bloody game like 'Mortal Kombat' is one, I was a school girl indeed not having the possibility to play it. It's alright that games are bloody and brutal just as the regulary action-films and I think, there should be age limits for underage ones.", Piret said to the Estonian newspaper Õhtuleht.

Computer-fans of among others 'Mortal Kombat' were able to play agains each other on big movie-screens of the Sõprus movie theatre.
During that night Piret remembered her childhood: "As a child there was still played a lot. 'Prince of Persia' I had a compter, the computer was black-green and also black-white still. 'Supalex', 'Minesweeper' and 'Super Mario' were games I also played.", she tells. Today th situation as changed for Piret: "Currently I'm not such a big computer- and video game player. I'm absolutely not familar with the games nowadays."

And what does Piret generally think of computer games? "Maybe it is a good way to escape from the reality and somehow calm your mind for a moment but I think that you need an entertaining feature, too", she answered.
From her childhood she remembered that she always argued with her elder sister Mari and her younger brither Peeter who may play the computer and that her parents always had to tell that that it's bed-time.

From the 'Computer Games Night' we got to know about Piret that she doen't like brutal, bloody games but prefers nice games like 'Super Mario' or 'Prince of Persia'.

At the beginning of the new year we had to inform you about the sad message that the concert the VN girls Piret, Katrin and Lenna planned, to celebrate their 10 year anniversary in summer, got cancelled. This made the band lose more fans again and more fans doubt about a VN-reunion.

Since today we have more hope than some VN-sources have tried to give you already. Vanilla Ninja will perform this summer! This is not an April-joke! Estonia's neighbour-country to the south, Latvia, has a new music and culture festival called 'Pestival', where many European artists will perform and so will the legendary Estonian girl-rock band from Estonia on July 28th, 2012 from 3.00 p.m. to 5.00p.m. [GTM+2] on the Mezaparks Great Stage in the Latvian capital Riga.

The ticket-shop has been opened since today. If you are quickly and belong to the ones to buy one of the first 3.000 tickets you only have to pay 18.00 Ls [25, 74 €], normal tickets cost 25 Ls [35, 75 €] and VIP tickets which are limited cost 50 Ls [71, 50 €].

Time to concentrate VN-fans!!! :)

As we informed you Piret Järvis will be the host of the Estonian ETV morning show 'Terevisioon' [Engl.: Hellovision] for a certain time.

The singer and host hasn't been able to judge about the results of the recordings. "I haven't watched filming yet, it is difficult to imagine by speaking.

In these following three days Piret even has to wake up before 05.00 am [GTM+2]. "But it's great that meanwhile I've got the routine.", Piret says.

Apart from that she has won concert tickets for Lenna's summer performances and a signed CD.

Piret and Kalle in a Relationship Again?

At the beginning of the new year we had to informed you that Piret Järvis and her fiancé drummer Kallervo Karu take a break from their relationship. Now it seems that they are together again.

We remind you that everything got clarified in January when Kallervo changed is relationship status on his Facebook page from "in a relationship with" to "single". The two of them explained that they need to refresh their relationship with this break. Even though they kept their tattoos which is supposed to be the sign of their engagement. Apart from that the couple still has plans to marry in the future.
Even in August, when Piret firstly began to spend lots of time with the Shelton San singer Valter Nõmm, there were rumors that Piret would have had a relationship with him, as the Estonian newspaper Õhtuleht wrote. Piret annulled these rumors and explained that it's only a business coorporation between the two of them.

The Estonian magazine Kroonika writes that Piret and Kallervo were seen at a beautiful dinner in the restaurant Põhja-Tallinna Rimis.
Now Piret additionally says that during this period her fiancé and her didn't have any arguments and that it looks like they are in a relationship again. "We get along greatly with each other!", she says.

Lenna talks about her Outfit

Last week Lenna attented to the yearly presdential-reception again. Just like the last year she wore a dress by the Estonian designer Pille Küngas. She chose a audacious combination of a cold-coloured dress and orange shoes and explains to the women's magazine Naisteleht why.

'The shoes were my own courageous decision, you can say. I talked to Pille about it and she wasn't sure if this would be a loss at such an important event.', Lenna Kuurmaa says.

She goes on telling that this audacious idea came suddenly. 'But this dress itself was so romantic, airy, bright, pure and light so I wanted the 'break-in' there to set something completly different to impress. I still wanted the colour in there.'

'It is also logical saying that the shoes were really bright, but I put in pastell orange and I also painted my fingernails in the same coulour.'

Which arrived belated to the Estonian cinema-screens.

Louhimies, about who there was a false rumour that Lenna and he would have a relationship, is also the director of her 'Eesti Laul' contesting song 'Mina Jään' [Engl.: I Stay].
'Many people wonder, how Louhimies came as director of my video, but it's another confirm, that if you believe in the goodness of people around you and these people believe in you then you can also do things without big money and budget. Not that people around you should work for free, but good deeds find their way in a circle. Always.', says Lenna about her cooperation with Louhimies.

Triinu's Answers to the Questions

Not long ago we informed you about a fan-interview with the ex-VN bassist Triinu Kivilaan arranged by the Estonian VN Portaal. Today Triinu's answers have been published.

How often do you visit Estonia? Has your boyfriend Sandro been there too? (What kind of work does he?)
I don't visit Estonia often. Regulary once in a year. Last Sunday (Febuary 19th) we came back from Estonia. Sandro has been there for the first time. He works in the informatical science field he's an IT-specialist.

You currently live in Switzerland, what kind of job do you have?
Me, myself I do work in a shoe-boutique.

Do you plan to work in the field somehow again?
I'm still fully connected with the music.. I don't believe that the will, effort and time is enough to make something.

How many years have you lived in Switzerland and why did you decide to move there?
Now I have lived here for five years. Some things are still different which I like. The people here are always very are open, very obliging. As well the countryside is very good, after all it's a mountainious area. It is also a very good place to find a destination here.

Do you feel like you fully belong to Switzerland, where Vanilla Ninja has been popular for the Eurovision?
All alone I'm more unknown. Maybe rarely people come to their minds and recognize that I've ever sang. But I'm thankful to Vanilla Ninja. Most of the people here know VN.

What do you think of some fan-sites still supporting and writing about you? How much are you still interested in these fan-sites?
Oih... Here I really don't know what to answer because try not to visit these sites because I want to leave my story of life behind me.

How is your sister doing Kerli and how about the little Markus?
Kerli is soon going to graduate school and she is going to go on learning in Tartu (she wants to study law if I'm not informed wrongly). Well Markus is only a little sweetie and goes to school. Currently he's still in the kindergarden. Both are doing well!:)

Which are your favourite song from your soloalbum and which VN songs did you ever like?
I don't want to list them. There have been many favourites... but I don't believe that I will listen to them very often again.

Which music are you listening to? Who are your favourite artists? Name some of songs which you like at the moment!

I listen to the following songs:
Schiller & Nadia Ali - Try
Aura Dione - Friends
Paul Kalkbrenner - Sky and sand
Sting - Desert Rose
White Apple Tree - Snowflakes
Tim Berg - Seek Bromance
These are some example. Of course I listen to every kind of music.

When did you meet (at least one of) VN girls?
I didn't meet any of the VN girls. I neither have their telephone number nor any kind of contact. None of us feels to miss somebody. It's better like this:)

Greetings Triinu K.

The VN Portaal and of course us thank everyone who took part at the fan-interview!

Piret Hosts the Eesti Laul Semifinals

Having hosted the semifinals and final of the 'Eesti Laul 2011' together with her band-mate Lenna Kuurmaa, Piret Järvis showed that she did a great job so that she will be the host of this year's 'Eesti Laul' semifinals.

Piret realized that she prefers peace of mind and that she is rather interested in leading the competition. "It is much more comfortable next to the racetrack and to let others compete with this year's semifinalists under the spotlight and the stage. Me, I was asked a following time to administer the show, that was such a big compliment for me that I didn't have to be asked twice.", she says.

"I'm among the participants of the "Eesti Laul" every year, I always see new artists or find and recognize old ones.", adds the host, who thinks that the 'Eesti Laul' is in a good position in the local music scene.

Last year Piret wore extravagant dresses as remember. This year she will be dressed by the fashion-artists Britt Samoson so we may expect new beautiful eye-catching dresses.

This year Piret will host the semi-finals together with the musician Mait Malmsteni.

Another good reason not to miss the 'Eesti Laul 2012' which will be on Febuary 18th, Febuary 25th and March 3rd in the Nokia concerthall on 21.35 pm [GTM+2]!
