Alla Pugacheva published a post in connection with the death of ex-president of the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev. Many, including Maria Shukshina, found the Primadonna’s statement provocative.
In her statement, Pugacheva noted that Gorbachev had done away with the “evil empire” represented by the USSR. Shukshina, in turn, reminded the singer that she became famous thanks to the Soviet Union, where it was possible to study music for free, reports First Russian.
The actress did not like the statement about “freedom”. According to her, it was she who influenced the work of Pugacheva. All her songs have become “consumer goods”. The Russians, on the other hand, fell in love with the Primadonna for compositions that delight the ear.
“I used to sing, under the Soviet Union, the beautiful sonnets of Shakespeare. A wonderful song was from “The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath!”. Amazing compositions. Everything was pleasing to the ear. And there was freedom – there were songs in the spirit of “My Bunny, I’m your … basin” and so on. Is this freedom? Shukshina was outraged.
Earlier, showman Rustam Solntsev said that Pugacheva would soon leave Russia again. According to him, the singer will go to her husband Maxim Galkin.
