Swedish singer Danny Saucedo is in a spot of bother after his appearance at a tv talk show. Danny talked about his youth and how he once thought he was gay but then said that "I came up with a better idea", suggesting that it was wrong to be gay. The talk show host Malou von Sivers reacted to the comment and Danny defended himself by saying "but I have lots of gay friends".
Danny enters the swedish Eurovision contest this coming weekend. This was his entry last year:
The LCHF diet debate lingers on in swedish media after last nights debate in the swedish tv show "Kvällsöppet". Katrin Zytomierska who has written a bestseller about how she used the diet to lose weight after she gave birth attacked the scientists saying they just hide behind old views and an old culture not embracing new evidence.
Katrin, always controversial cause of her constant outbursts on her blog entitled "Fuck you right back", claims that the LCHF diet is the only diet that works.

Last night Sweden's most famous tv news anchor, Claes Elfsberg, made his last appearance in the news broadcast of "Rapport". Claes has been reporting news to swedes since 1975. Claes will now continue the same work but in the other of Swedens two main national tv channels in the rivalling news programme "Aktuellt".

Loreen will represent Sweden in the Eurovision Finals in Baku after winning the swedish Eurovision with the song "Euphoria". She is already tipped to win the whole thing with her powerful performance where she fills up the stage all by herself except at the end when a dancer joins her onstage.

For the second year in a row Danny Saucedo ended in second place in the swedish Eurovision song contest with his song "Amazing". The performance was perhaps worth a number one spot with the light suits and overall dance performance but a sulky Danny afterwards didn't go to the after party and was dubbed "bad loser" by the swedish public.

After she had qualified for the swedish Eurovision final Loreen appeared at the swedish Gay awards singing her 2011 Eurovision entry "My heart is refusing me" and the crowd was really up for it.
I am still coming to terms with the awful Kate Bush rip off song Lisa Miskovsky performed during the swedish Eurovision recently.
"Been running up that hill, been taking too much drugs" more like....
Hello, Urban. Great to see you posting again. Pretty sick of them to ban you just for saying that African Americans should "stand up."
As always when my local band KENT release a single or album the journos are like bees to honey. Overnight the band released a live version of their upcoming single "999". The band recorded their upcoming album in France during the winter.
Cover art inspired by egyptian hieroglyphs. Egypt who launched itself as the pyramide country of the world despite the fact that Sudan has the most pyramides.
I used to love KENT but I cannot stand them since a few years back. Sometimes when you discover that people that you do not like are into the same band it kind of makes you stop being a fan. The song is horrible and they are past 40 now so time for these old grumpy men to retire methinks.
The latest season of "Sveriges fulaste hem" (Swedens ugliest home) is well under way. It is the makeover show hosted by gay couple Simon Davies, from England, and swede Tomas Cederlund. They own the interior and design shop London W8 in Stockholm.
During the latest season of their tv show they have a clip called "Typiskt svenskt" (typical swedish) where they highlight things that are typical for swedish homes. Simon understands swedish but prefers to talk english in the show but will burst out in swedish at times and mostly when he swears or is annoyed with his partner Tomas or something that goes wrong.
Typical swedish clip:
Malmö is once again making the headlines in Sweden as a tv reporter and a local politician is attacked verbally in the street by muslim gang members during an interview about the many shooting in the city. SVT reporter Janne Josefsson was walking in the troubled area of Seved in Malmö interviewing Ilmar Reepalu, described as the strong man of Malmö after having held Malmö's top political job for many years, when two men of foreign background questioned their presence on what they described as "our street".

My final Solo post as I have realised that I have no business on a website dedicated to someone I haven't listened to in many years now and who means nothing at all to me these days. The people I liked from the chatroom days are not here it seems and I haven't got the time or will to hang about here anymore.
I wanna urge people who see posts done in my name to report it to the mods and I can only hope they will act on it. Despite having used the new anonymous posting here set up by David I would urge him to restrict the ways to post and instead set up a new identitification scheme for the people on here as many people suffer from abuse done anonymously.
I wanna thank the many people I talked to over the years here and David who made this the place to be for many years. I wish everyone all the best for the future.
Like I stated in the thread about what music people is listening to I have decided to post in this and that thread after receiving a request via email from a Solo member who kindly asked me to post in these two threads.
Tonight the swedish tv show "Let's Dance" started a new season a bit later than usual. This show goes under the name "Dancing with the stars" in the USA and "Strictly come dancing" in the UK but in Sweden they named it "Let's Dance" using the Bowie tune as intro music for the show.
In its 7th season one of the contestants is Anton Hyse'n, son of former Liverpool player Glenn Hyse'n. Anton came out of the closet last year and as a footballer admitted that he is gay.
Anton Hyse'n appeared in the BBC film "Britain's gay footballers":
