Lenna at ETV

Recently the Vanilla Ninja girl Lenna Kuurmaa has appeared in two ETV shows:

On January 18, 2012 she was Terevisioon [Engl.: Hellovision] Morning show's guest where she firstly performed her song "Mina Jään" [Engl.: I stay] and talked about her band, the coming Eesti Laul and of course her song.

Watch her performance and interview below:


Yesterday evening we could watch Lenna at the show Kahekõne [Engl.: Dialogue]  where she gave an interview.
She caught four different topics in the in the show: Vanilla Ninja, her music and band, her film roles especiallz refered to her newest film Vuosaari [Engl.: Naked Harbour] and the Eesti Laul.
Lenna confirmed her band mate Katrin's message that the Vanilla Ninja members are all too busy at the moment to organize such a big event like a concert. Even though Lenna said something optimistic, the band might celebrate their 20-year anniversary. So Lenna doesn't write VN off. We as fans should do either. :)

About her band and her plans with the band Lenna said that she dreams to perform in foreign countries such as Germany where Vanilla Ninja's success was the biggest. We can interpret from this that Lenna misses the time when she performed elsewhere than in Estonia and we can assure her that her fans are waiting for her.
Maybe even this year her dream could be reality as she says to have some contacts in Germany.

Lenna has already performed on the stages of the Eurovision Song Contest (we remember Kiev in 2005 when Vanilla Ninja took the 8th place with Cool Vibes - then with Triinu Kivilaan - representing Switzerland) so the knows what's really going on.
"I have experienced the Eurovision, I know what is going on there's a big party of show, tralalala and circus but at the same time it is groovy and and fun, so why not participating again? Apart from that I haven't represented Estonia yet. I want to do it now.", Lenna says.

Vanilla Ninja Concert Cancelled

Finally 2012 has come. The year we have all waited for so longing with lots of hopes and beliefs because it is the year of Vanilla Ninjas 10 year anniversary.

At the end of the passed year we informed you that the Lenna, Piret and Katrin have been planning two huge things to celebrate the band's anniversary together with their fans: a big concert in summer and a show with the videos of their fans.

Today a sad message reached us. The concert is cancelled as they Vanilla Ninja keyboardist Katrin wrote to the VN Portaal. She and her bandmates Piret and Lenna are too busy with their own projects so that they wouldn't manage to organize that event. Katrin herself writes that she is very sad about it. But she keeps being optimistic.
About the videos we can assure you that they will be used in a way! If not by the Ninja girls themselves then by the VN Portaal! DON'T WORRY ABOUT THAT!

There is much more hope we can tell you about: The Love Ninjas crew is still giving its very best to make the fan-meeting in the girls hometown Tallinn in midsummer they've mentionned real. Apart from that us from Club Vanilla Ninja are looking forward to get more and more photos from you with Piret, Katrin and Lenna for the photoalbum for the girls.

Let's not give up on  our beloved girls because of that. Let's stay true to them and be though enough together. They have always showed us that we are in their minds and hearts and with every released work they have prooved us their love.
Piret once explained in an interview with the FREE! magazine: "But you know, for ourselves we decided that we do not want to do the same thing right now. We need some change, but I think that after 3 or 5 years or so it would be nice to come back to the roots of the band."
All they have done was to please us.

When they talked about their band logo Piret said: "(...)It expresses all the things we went through, which other artists haven”t experienced. We started out from the very bottom and battled our way through to becoming famous and getting into the charts. It is like a crown for the text “Vanilla Ninja”.” and Lenna added: "(...)This part is also a sign for our music and for us being in the hearts of our fans.”

They have fought hard, very hard, we know that! And they haven't for sure fought to throw it all again one day. They will come back we just have to keep believing.

Love is just a war without them!

Piret and Kalle Take a Little Break!

"It's an absolutely true story. It is true", confirms the drummer Kallervo Karu about the break up of his relationship with the musician and TV editor Piret Järvis as present solution. "We thought of taking a little break - so maybe in time our relationship would be renewed.", argues Kallervo who has been engaged with Piret since four years already.
The Estonian newspaper Õhtuleht informs about the story at first.

One more sign that the story is true is that Kallervo changed his relationshipstatus on Facebook from 'engaged' to 'single'.
Even though the engagement hasn't broken up. Kallervo believes that they will as well keep the sign of their engagement, a tattoo in shape of a circle which Piret has at her neck and Kallervo at the inner side of his  forearm. Even if the relationship is in a crisis they won't remove the tattoos: "We are not going to erase them. We leave and see what the times brings for us. Even if the ultimate decision will be negative I don't think that we will erase the tattoos. That's a good mind." At least it has been an important phase of their live.

No matter what happened both still keep their friendship. About two weeks ago they attended to the Aastahitt gala together and posed happily for the photographers. "Indeed we have had broken up a while before that but we decided to go there together.", Kallervo explains. "For five and a half years we have been together nonstop."

The wedding will be delayed

Let's remember about the beginning of Piret's and Kallervo's beautiful relationship.
They've met in the cold winter six years in December 2005 when Vanilla Ninja (then with Triinu) performed at the Saku arena where Slide-Fifty performed, too.
Two years later in 2007 they got engaged.

"Kalle asked me to meet him because of something very important. I thought that we go there without any big sense. Everything was so thouching, that I screamed and said "yes".", Piret remembers the very romantic moment. Kalle says it was very spontaneous: "To me there was a strong feeling. I had the thought that there was a good thing going on. I felt that I wanted to allow her - please I'm yours!"

They planned to marry abroad. "The wedding is designed in our taste. We're not that vain to have a big white marriage. We have many good friends with whom we would have a very happy celebration.", Kallervo finds. So the wedding will be delayed.

At the moment the two of them go different ways. Piret spends a lots of time with the disco- and rockband Shelton Stan singer and guitarist Valter Nõmme.

Thanks for Zuzia for informing us about the news! :)

Mina Jään

As we informed you Lenna will participate in this year's Eesti Laul as contestant again to represent her native country Estonia in this year's Eurovision in Baku with some luck.

For this reason she and her new guitarist Mihkel Raud wrote and composed the song 'Mina Jään' [Engl.: I stay] which was firstly presented at the Von Krahl Theatre at the end of last year.

As Mihkel informed the fans on his Facebook page the band has travelled to the capital of Sweden Stockholm to record the song and to make a video to this song.

Now we are able to check both out below:

...and the lyrics:

hääled vaikusesse sumbunud
veri huultes külmast tardunud
kauaks lagled läinud rändama
kaugele nad lendavad

tuhat tähte alla langevad
su silmadesse kukuvad

mina jään
veel ootama su jälgi lumel
mina jään
veel seisma siia tormituulde
sosistama sinu nime
lendama su unes

helbed laugudele langevad
veena põskedele voolavad
lumepimeduses liblikad
käsivarsi riivavad

tuhat tähte alla langevad
su silmadesse kukuvad

mina jään
veel ootama su jälgi lumel
mina jään
veel seisma siia tormituulde
sosistama sinu nime
lendama su unes

tuultemered endaga
meid algusesse kannavad

mina jään
veel ootama su jälgi lumel
mina jään
veel seisma siia tormituulde
mina jään
veel ilmuma su peegelduses
sosistama sinu nime

Making of...Vuosaari

Even though we sum up her main parts, before she talks about her role she talks about her career from the beginning til now and how she got the role. She says that she had some problems with the Finnish language which is quite similar to her native language Estonian.
