Sweden doesn’t like Rybak
Markus Larsson in the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet gave Rybak a 1 for his latest album and called him a violinhobit among other things. He predicted that his fame would be in Norway only and that his music only belonged in The Eurovision Song Contest. Many other Swedes followed and didn’t give Rybak much credit for his work. I thought this was jealousy, its a Norway-Sweden thing.
Today Rybak visited a very small place in Sweden, over 5000 people wanted to see him and it became quite chaotic, at least one girl fainted. I think the number of visitors would be five times higher if he visited a large city and I find it hillerious. Does this mean thousands love him after all and Markus Larsson only wrote in jealousy? 🙂 Rybak can charm everyone I think and I believe we will see much more of him in the future. Because of his personality I think we will see him in other roles as well. A future peace negotiator maybe? 🙂
