Russia: Dima Bilan believes in Sergey Lazarev

The one and only so far Russia’s winner, Dima Bilan, breaks his silence and speaks openly against those who compare him to Sergey Lazarev and perpetuate an enmity between the two super stars.

He explained that their careers are like two parallel lines that cannot intersect, but can show some similarities, as it happens in nature too. He didn’t hesitate to call those rumors as stereotypes which take place only in the fantasies of some people, who live through this hate. Furthermore he emphasized the solidarity that must be shown to the hard workers, as success demands strength and sacrifices. With his philosophical words, Dima admitted that respect and understanding each other is what differs human from apes! Finally, Bilan didn’t forget to wish Sergey to bring the trophy back to Russia and experience this unique feeling victory gives!

Read his statement below:

“Sergey! Congratulations for the song! Yesterday I had a look at the comments I’ve received. Apparently, we are still compared by those, who tend to think only on two-plane scale, not further and by those, who, due to being narrow-minded, cannot understand that two parallel lines do not intersect, both in creative work and in the cognition of this world, where  coincidences are rare, just like with fingerprints! Apparently human is created this way; they need to invent “windmill mills” where virtual “antipode heroes” must be in constant struggle and enmity with each other!) Apparently the genre of classical epic is always in demand) and the behavioral pattern of rivals has to be just that -hateful! Cliché and STEREOTYPE! I don’t even want to ruin these fantasies, and disappoint particularly active followers, for whom “our rivalry” is so meaningful, a fire wood periodically smoldering in their fantasies. But I emphasize once again – I have no need to hype this up, of course I possess inherent solidarity with the work and the artist, who invests in the profession enormous strength. Solidarity I have been brought up with since childhood and is multiplied throughout my life, moreover having seen it personally, and having experienced more than once what sacrifices it takes to climb up to the top!  It is a pity that not all, among “writers and readers”, to those who come up with easy conclusions, can experience this, it is a pity because overcoming obstacles, overcoming physical work, and not virtually throwing remarks, is complicated, but an ultimately amazing feeling and pleasure, because only during growing process a person becomes larger, wider, * turns from a unicellular one you into a multicellular * (c), such a practical philosophy, no matter how grand it may sound! Apparently only this motion vector transfers us all out apes into humans!!! Dear followers, we are all different and this is the joy of this beauty! Seryozh, and I want to wish you to have a blast at this contest and give the audience this pleasure, not forgetting yourself, to plunge in euphoria again and feel this drive, with your awesome track, which is so necessary for everyone who wants to escape from the sad winter gloom and imperfection of life! I sincerely wish you victory; there are so many emotions and feelings in it, which allow you to rise above the planet for a split second!”

Серж @lazarevsergey!поздравляю с песней!ЧитаНУЛ вчера комментарии у себя☺️видимо нас продолжают сравнивать индивидуумы,которым свойственно размышлять только в двух плоскостях не более и кто в силу своего узкого кругозора не может понять,что две параллельные прямые не пересекаются,как в творчестве так и в познавании этого мира,где совпадений минимальное количество,как на отпечатках пальцев!Видимо человек так устроен,надо ему напридумывать«мельниц ветряных» где виртуальные «герои антиподы»должны находиться в постоянной борьбе и вражде друг с другом!) видимо жанр классического эпоса востребован всегда) и модель поведения соперников должна быть только такой -с ненавистью!Штамп и СТЕРЕОТИП! Вот даже не хочу рушить эти фантазии,и разочаровывать особо активных фоловеров,для кого «наше соперничество» является смыслом,дровишками вспыхивающими периодически в их фантазиях.Но ещё раз подчеркну – мне хайпить незачем,мне же свойственна элементарная солидарность к труду и артисту,вкладывающему в профессию огромные силы,которая воспиталась во мне с детства и умножалась в процессе жизни,ещё и насмотревшись воочию,и испытав не раз на себе,какими жертвами берутся высоты!Жаль,что из«писателей и читателей«тех кто пишут односложные умозаключения не все могут испытать это,жаль потому,что преодолевать препятствия,преодолевать физически делом,а не виртуально бросать реплики,это смешанные,но в конечном итоге потрясающие чувства и удовольствие,потому что только в процессе роста человек становится больше,шире,*из одноклеточного превращаешься в многоклеточного*(с),эдакого практикующего философа,как бы громко не звучало!видимо только этот вектор движения и делает нас всех из обезьяны в человека!!!и Господа следящие-мы все разные и в этом счастье этой прелести🤷🏻‍♂️))Серёж,а тебе хочу пожелать оттянуться на этом конкурсе и дать зрителю это удовольствие,не забывая про себя, оказаться снова в эйфории и почувствовать этот драйв,с твоим афигенным треком ,который так нужен всем кто хочет отвлечься от грустной зимней серости и несовершенности жизни!Искренне Желаю тебе победы,в ней столько эмоций и чувств,которые позволяют на доли секунд как бы подняться над планетой! #димабилан #сергейлазарев
