    I'm not sure that it is Mika's dressing room, but yes, that looks like a cigar. It's sad because I've seen many of her fans on IG begging her to quit, she had to fight with cancer for more than 10 years, underwent 3 surgeries and only 4 months ago she said she's recovered... but yeah, I also hope they are not allowed to smoke in there :no:

     

    Ah, I didn't know that. Well yes, it doesn't look like she has a very healthy lifestyle, I can understand her fans being worried. I'd certainly be, if it was Mika.

    I thought it was Mika's dressing room because of the carpet, I think that's the one he has, no? And because he's the only one not wearing a mask - from what I saw so far, it seems only in your own dressing room you're allowed to take off the mask. Tho they probably just put them on for the pic anyway, as they were having drinks. :rolleyes: Drinks from plastic cups, I hope it wasn't the Dom Perignon. :aah:

    I think Fedez had his e-cigarette in his room, ready to be used, so I doubt they need to go outside for smoking. Or well, from my experiences of working at concerts in backstage areas, it might be they're supposed to go outside but no one cares if they don't. They're the stars of the show, what are you gonna do if they don't keep to the rules, call the police to get them? Surely not. Anyway, Mika looks happy in the pic, so I hope that means there was no problem for him.

    I just noticed when zooming in - what's Emma holding, is that a cigar? :blink: It's blurry, but the way she's holding it between her fingers, it looks like it. :dunno: I think she does smoke, so maybe also cigars - but as that's Mika's dressing room (I think), I hope she wasn't smoking there. :sneaky2:

    I don't think he is fake, but he is shy and not aware of his capabilities as a singer, I am happy that he is in Mika's team

     

    It's true, insecurity can come across as being fake and arrogant. But as we're on MFC here, it's Mika who sets the standards - and tho he used to be full of insecurities at the beginning of his career, he never seemed fake or arrogant, apart from maybe a few slips. Anyway, I don't see any of the other candidates as very likeable either. Not even Casadilego, tho she's an amazing singer and can transport a lot of emotion in her voice, when I watch her IG stories, it's just meh, not very interesting. So I could imagine Vergo has a chance of winning this thing, he's definitely among my faves, for his performances. Tho well, maybe I'm a bit biased because he's in Mika's team... if it wasn't for the teams, I suppose I'd vote for Casadilego as a winner.

    Thank you! :flowers2:

    I find Vergo so fake when he speaks, when he moves, dunno why but I can't stand him :aah:  For me NAIP is an authentic artist and I'm always curios to see his performances.

     

    I see what you mean - but as I probably won't follow any of these artists after XF is over (unless they work together with Mika), I don't care much about whether they're real or fake. I mostly look at their singing and their performance. And Vergo is a great performer, that's undeniable. If I had to choose which of Mika's candidates I'd go to have a drink with, that'd be Naip, he's definitely more likeable and a more deep and interesting person. But as a performer on stage, Vergo touches me more than Naip.

    Well, not everyone can have it all, like Mika does. :teehee: :wub2:

    You're so welcome! :mikalove:

     

     

    Thank you! I've downloaded this one, because apparently they've already deleted again the one you posted yesterday. :rolleyes: Do they just delete it if you post the whole Daily's, would it be better if you only upload Mika's part? Or doesn't it make a difference?

     

    What is Mika saying about Vergo's song, the first time he's speaking with Vergo? I think later he tells Vergo that it seems like he's suffering and he should rather have fun. And in the end I think Mika complains why he always gets the most difficult team, or something like that? :teehee:

  6. Ah, thanks. So in the first part they'll be singing again songs they've sung before? It makes sense that 2 candidates will have to leave, there are not that many live shows left. I just wish they'd let them sing their newly rehearsed songs first, I think it's not fair if they have to rehearse and invest all this work and then they don't even get the chance to sing it. :sneaky2:

    I'm totally enchanted by Vergo this week. I haven't expected it, but I felt such goosbumps I didn't feel while listening to other's people songs (I mean not Mika) for a long time. 

    So, officially now he's my favourite at XF. It would be a kind of tragedy if he is kicked away. I'm really impressed to see the growth of this guy. Anyway, I hope he won't disappear and will go on on the stage.

     

    I also was stunned by his performance. It felt like a prayer - the atmosphere, the music, the costumes, his movements.... I didn't even notice there was autotune, but imo this performance had this special something that Mika said he was looking for.

     

    What are the rules for the next Live, does it change every time?! Why is there a risk that Naip can't perform his song? He sounded awesome in yesterday's rehearsal, I want to hear it!!

    Mika was on for like 2 minutes :crybaby:and Warning: It's not perfect, had to do some editing

     

    Perfect enough, Mika is singing. :wub2: :wub2: Thank you!! :hug:

    And wow, I'm amazed that Naip can do such a song, very melodic! Looking forward to his performance on the next live. Mika also says a few words about the song, that it's about love without cliché, starting with wanting to throw love away and ending with begging for it to return - and that this is beautiful because it's true. It's good that he explains the song, just from reading the lyrics I wouldn't have understood the meaning - the translator often only makes half sense with lyrics, because lyrics often aren't schoolbook grammar.

    Starting at 5:50, the question is how is your relation with Mika. I don't understand much of his answer, I think I understand something like that Mika believes in Vergo and Naip, and in the end Vergo says it's an artistic relation and it's very good. Anyway he doesn't seem overly excited to me, I have the feeling he's struggling for words a bit. Maybe someone who speaks Italian can give us a clearer idea of what he says?

    Edit: And at 7:05 there's another question, something about songs and Mika and Naip - but not sure what it's about, songs that represent them? That he'd dedicate to them? Anyway he says "La Bomba" for Mika, and something about autotune.

  10. Mika IG story yesterday, a repost of MFC's repost of a fan with a tattoo saying 'Who gives a shit about tomorrow' - tho in Mika's story it's not readable at all anymore, I already found it hard to read in the MFC one, so not sure what he wanted to say by reposting this. :teehee: Well I do understand why he'd like a tattoo of this songline, because for getting a lasting tattoo you just have to give a shit about tomorrow. But I mean what's the point if no one can read it. It's nice to hear from him though, even if it's random. And the song is playing too, so maybe that's why. :dunno_grin:

  11. So, let me just make this clear again: In my first post on here when I said Mika doesn't mind, I did NOT mean people telling him they want to have sex with him. I was talking about my own comments, which are telling him in different (imo respectful) ways that he looks attractive, and from what I gathered that isn't the problem you're talking about. Like Sabine, I hadn't (still haven't) seen those comments in question - not sure if that's because social media shows me mostly the comments that me and my friends might be interested in the most, and/or just because I usually don't scroll down to read everything. Especially posts in different languages, I only click on those if I think it's news about Mika, or an interesting discussion, because I have to let Twitter translate those for me (Instagram doesn't do that - and even with the translation I still don't always get the meaning).

     

    So yeah, if you say that those who write such comments aren't the ones who are discussing here, I suppose we mostly agree. :dunno_grin: It's still good to have this discussion, because maybe those whom it concerns might read it at some point and think more before they post. 

     

    As for those of you who talked about calling people out: I think it's always a better choice to write to the person in private, and just tell them about your concerns in a polite way - specifically relating to the comment/s in question, because no one will be happy to hear that you generally think of them as a bad and respectless person. Either they're interested in a discussion with you and take your concerns seriously, or they aren't - in the latter case, nothing will change anyway, no matter what you say. If you can't reach them privately, because you only know them on Twitter and they don't follow you there, maybe you can also answer to the Tweet in question with a link to this thread. I think these would be appropriate and polite ways to let people know that a certain post by them offended you, and discuss it with them. If you're open for a discussion yourself, of course. Not everyone is, on both sides. Just posting a general "some people post offensive stuff" on Instagram won't change anything. So it's good Chandler that you opened this thread, to discuss these things. :thumb_yello:

     Schönen Abend, Mellody!

    Ich bin (noch) gesund, im Bekannten- und Verwandtenkreis gibt es aber leider einige Erkrankte und leider werden es immer mehr. Deswegen halte ich mich an die Regeln und bleib zuhause und nutze das Internet um mit anderen zu kommunizieren. Mein kleiner Neffe leidet darunter am meisten, kein Kindergarten, keine Freunde - mit 3 Jahren versteht man sowas nicht wirklich. Aber ich denke, bei deinen Kindern ist das ähnlich. 

    Liebe Grüße aus Kärnten

    Gigimau

     

    Ich hoffe, du bleibst gesund. Gehörst du zur Risikogruppe? Ich kenne zum Glück im Umfeld niemanden, der positiv getestet wurde, toi toi toi - habe aber gelesen, dass Österreich das im Verhältnis zur Bevölkerung am meisten betroffene Land weltweit ist derzeit, das ist schon hart. :( Wie hast du es denn in deinem Umfeld wahrgenommen vor dem Lockdown, haben sich die Leute daran gehalten, möglichst wenige Kontakte zu pflegen und Masken zu tragen, oder eher nicht?

     

    Hier sind die Kindergärten ja bislang noch offen, aber im März-Mai war's dasselbe hier. Mein Sohn versteht das ja alles schon, vermisst aber die Kontakte zu anderen Kindern wenn der Kindergarten zu ist. Dem fällt dann hier die Decke auf den Kopf. Meine Tochter ist zwar zum Glück flexibel, auch wenn sie es nicht versteht, ihr gefällt's auch daheim - aber durch den Kindergarten macht sie ständig so tolle Entwicklungsfortschritte (sie hat ja eine Behinderung, durch die sie entwicklungsverzögert ist), dass man es sofort merkt, wenn sie mal 2-3 Wochen nicht dort ist. Zum Glück stehen Kinder mit Behinderung und Integrationsplatz inzwischen auf der Liste der Kinder, für die eine Notbetreuung vorgesehen ist. Nicht an oberster Stelle, aber immerhin besser als im März.

    Naja, schaugn mer mal wie's weitergeht.

    Chandler perfectly articulated the point I wanted to make. One concept the feminist movement is very keen to educate people on, is that someone sexualising themselves does not give YOU the right to sexualise them. You often see comments from men online like “how can women post revealing sexy pictures of themselves like this, then get mad when people objectify them?😂”. The reason is the same as why people chose to take showers but will get angry if you unexpectedly throw a bucket of water over them. There’s no crime in speaking sexually of things INTENDED to be sexual, but overly sexualising normal things is when it becomes sexualisation. Also no ones trying to police peoples thoughts, I just think it’s a matter of what might be distasteful to post online. And obviously tastes differ! Which is why we were just sharing what others find to be distasteful and uncomfortable, so that people are aware of that❤️

     

    I agree with you on that. And sorry Chandler if it came across to you as if I meant this with my comment about Mika humping things on stage. It's not what I mean. I can elaborate on this more tonight, when I have more time.

     

    What I'm still trying to figure out in this discussion is what comments we're talking about here. It's a HUGE difference to me whether someone comments a pic of Mika with "😍" than saying "the things I'd do to him". No matter if they're 16 or 60. I thought with this thread Chandler might also be referring to my Tweets about the video of Mika opening his jacket to show his abs. But maybe that's a misinterpretation by me? I definitely don't want to defend any comments that are saying "Mika I want to f*** you" in some way.

     

    As I said, I'll post more tonight, am busy now.
