My German is not good enough to translate word by word,but basically,it says that Mika has been named the new icon of pop and his song Grace Kelly has stormed british charts and now he is visiting Berlin.

Then there is the background bit about American father and Liebanese Mum and sining opera.And he says it is funny that he used to do all the classical music and now he is singing about fat girls :D

He also talks about Grace Kelly video and says that you can see his big sister,mum and grandmother in it-he calls them his bodyguards ;)

And people reviews are very good.Thats all I could understand-now wait for a better translation

it is far from perfect but i wanted to do it quickly:

 

Underestimated by music companies for a long time, he nevertheless believed in himself and kept going on – successfully. Now Mika, son of an American father and a Lebanese mother is THE big newcomer. With his single Grace Kelly he hit the top of the charts in UK and just yesterday he made it to the hearts of the Berliners.

From falsetto to base – his voice contains more than 5 octaves (didn’t he say himself that was bull****?). Pop wonder MIKA is celebrated as the new discovery of the music scene, although the 23 year old Mika wanted to become an opera singer (really??).

 

It is funny because one and a half years ago I was studying Brahms songs at music college. Now I sing songs about big girls, lollipops or Grace Kelly.

 

And with the hit Grace Kelly he broke all records at once. It is because of his American-lebanese big family that he still keeps his feet on the ground. Members of that family are also dancing along in the video.

 

The only person that is always around me is my big sister. And of course my mother, my gradmother and all the others want to come with me. I don’t have bodyguards, I have relatives instead.

 

Of course all of them were with him at the beginning of his tour but not only his family was enthusiastic.

 

Woman: he can really sing – top. Super pop

Man: Super, I’m glowing.

Woman: That was the most beautiful night of my life.

 

Mika – the pop sensation of the year. We are sure we’ll hear more from him.

 

Thank you so much for posting the link, Sou!

Yeah, that is really funny, I even didn't realize it until yesterday. Actually I didn't think of trying it in one word as I signed in here, so I did not know. Otherwise I would have tried a different name but I hope you don't mind... :wink2:

But I like the translation Violet Sky gave and I'm getting curious now...
