Farewell to a Russian Legend – Last Concert of “Prima Dona” in Odessa Tonight

April 30, 2009

Alla Pugacheva, who has just turned 60, has embarked on her fair-well tour of the former USSR.  Also known as “Prima Dona”, Pugacheva has a massive fan base across Russia and Ukraine and is one of the most successful artists from this region ever.

Her career has lasted over 30 years and she has never dropped from the limelight.

Having already said goodbye to Kyiv, where the Prime Minister of Ukraine, Yulia Tymoshenko……..who is a massive fan…….and would be, as she perfectly fits the age range of Pugacheva’s fan base……got on stage and sang “Happy Birthday” to her………Yeh, it kind of turns “Happy Birthday Mr President” on it’s head with Monroe and JFK…..but there you go.

Of course “Prima Dona” won’t disappear from public view……..she’s just not touring any more.  No doubt she will still be all over the TV…….and will probably host even more TV shows than she does now……..and it is almost guaranteed she will be wheeled out every Christmas for the “variety shows” on TV.

Her style of music is not to my taste………her daughter, Kristina Orbakaite is a little more so……..and definitely more pleasing to the eye……….particularly after her nose job ………promised the wife I wouldn’t mention the nose job as she is a friend of Kristina…………so Shhhhhh!!!……..I really am a bitch sometimes!

Bucking the trend of older husbands and young wives………..or maybe that is just for old US men with young Russian wives……..Pugacheva’s current husband is in his late 30’s………..the same age as her daughter Kristina. 

Eh??……….No, no, no – No “mother and daughter” thing here you sick puppy……..Kristina is married to an exceptionally rich Greek.

Above is a little duet between Mum and daughter………………Not that kind of duet – you really are sick!!!!

Anyway, the last concert from the “Prima Dona” takes place tonight at Palace Sporta in the Arcadia district of Odessa.

No – you won’t see me there………like a say, Alla Pugacheva doesn’t do it for me musically……….or any other way to be honest!!

………Yeh, I know, I’m not sure her late 30’s husband wouldn’t prefer her to “stay on the road” a little longer too!!
