Aysel Teymurzadeh: Without new songs, every singer would be forgotten - PHOTOS

09 April 2010 [16:38] - TODAY.AZ
At one of the mettings, last year's Azerbaijani Eurovision representative Aysel Teymurzadeh was noticed, with a camera. Moreover, she was actually shooting things, just like a professional photographer. Later, she gave an interesting interview to Trend Life correspondent, who noticed her in the first place.

Where did your love for photography come from?

I love to shoot myself, and I also like being photographed. I have recently bought a professional camera. I did have a camera, but i couldnt get the effects i wanted from it. Then, i decided to buy the latest model, which as you can see, i take with me to any event I attend. I bought it in one of the local stores.

Which celebrity you would shoot instantly if you had a chance?

As for the foreign stars, without hesitation, i would photograph Monica Bellucci. To me she seems like an ideal female. I now regret missing the time when she was here in Baku...

If one of the Azerbaijani TV-channels would open a paparazzi show, would like to be the hostess of the show?

We dont have much of paparazzis here, but I would very much like that. Would have been great, if we had the same system as of Hollywoods - where stars get actually "caught" by paparazzis. I, myself, wouldnt want to be a paparazzi, but I am interested in the idea itself. We should have this kind of thing here in Azerbaijan.

And if you yourself would suddenly be caught by paparazzi?

And what would they capture? As I leave home and go to buy bread at the store? I never tried to stand out. Yes, I know that there is a formed opinion that I'm very rich. But I am not. At home I have a cat, and recently when she run out of food, I myself, went out to buy her some. All I am saying is that we are all ordinary people. Try watching the foreign stars' lifestyle - they all prefer simplicity.

Do you earn a lot?

Since I do not sing at weddings, I earn money as a model for the promotion of different brands. Also, join some corporate evenings, and get royalties. Well-known American star Jennifer Lopez performs at weddings, too. And I'd love to be visited on someone else's celebration, but on the other hand, I honestly do not want get involved in weddings. The stage of "Eurovision" has become for me an ideal place for self-assertion. This level was very important to me.

Perhaps you yourself noticed that recently, the local press sometimes get surprised by your actions...

If you are referring to my interest in photo shooting, I will say that I am not really preparing for them. For example, during the Nowruz celebration on the set of Lider TV channel I was "Bahar qizi." During the festive shots in the Mugham Theatre I was dressed in appropriate clothes, and there were some pictures taken of me. Frankly speaking, I do not want to post photos on sites. I posted them on my personal Facebook page, and then suddenly discovered them on other websites.

Now the main thing. In the contest "Eurovision-2010" Azerbaijan will be represented by Safura Alizadeh. I'd like you to go back, and clear something up for us - back then you said, that you dont have any favourites among other Eurovision-2009 participants....

Yes, I said that I will support Azerbaijan, regardless of who is elected. I'm glad Safura got elected, and I support the decision. I wish her success. With God's help, she takes good place and please all of us.

I listened to all her songs during the national selection, and i liked "Drip-drop". It's still very difficult to say whether she will win or not. I myself will certainly go to Norway for support.

Did you give any useful advices to Safura?

During the semifinals and the national final, I was backstage and tried to help her with advices. We talked a lot about the Eurovision, i told her what it is all about, what might happen, etc.

After the success in Moscow, you have become very popular. Moreover, not only as a singer, but as a friendly and sincere person. Will you stick to this gained reputation?

I want to believe it. To remain in the memory of viewers and fans, hard work is the key. It is important to constantly write new songs, if you do not, any singer would be forgotten...
