A family post! Helena Seger's been out and about lately, giving her first interview, getting an award for her... fashion sense, and attending games with the children (Vincent got glasses!). So I will post about it.

interview, pics, etcCollapse )

I haven't had much time lately, but I wanted to post some new pics on Maximilian and Vincent (and a vid!), and Helena Seger. And a small Zlatan picspam.

A quite meagre (and belated!) post, but, well, there's been school and stuff. Still, I just wanted to post these quotes.

Zlatan on racism, turning down the NT (yet again) and getting olderCollapse )

Okay, I've got to post all of the pics from Zlatan's outing with Maximilian back in September, they're just too cute.

So, Sweden played two qualification matches a while back. I know I'm hopelessly late, but I'm still going to make a post now. Because of the love.

Swedish NT, you useless, pretty team (heavy on Zlatan)Collapse )

Parts of an old interview with Zlatan, back when he was ninenteen.

Oh, great new interview with Zlatan, about being the winner of the scoring race (though it was published this morning before the final, heh), the Barcelona rumours, Paolo Maldini and more.Collapse )

So! The Eurovision Song Contest is coming up, and Sweden, fed up with getting the last spot every year with a beautiful and perfect pop-song-composed-to-sound-exactly-like-ABBA, will this time send Malena Ernman, our reknown mezzo sopran. She'll be singing a far-out tune surrounded by dancing men in diamond masks, so there!

Anyways, Malena first entered the Swedish consciousness when she performed parts of the Habanera from Bizet's opera Carmen at the Sports Gala, with lyrics that consisted of classic supporter's chants. I recommend watching it, for two reasons: 1, she's pretty lovely, 2: Zlatan's adorable smile when she sings "I love you, Ich liebe dich, Zlatan Ibrahimovic". Compare it with former NHL star Peter "Foppa" Forsberg and his completely clueless stone face and weep. Other highlights: at 2.03 when she starts chanting "We hate, hate, hate Gothenburg!" followed by "The referee brews his own!" and the choir's "Fuck the referee! Fuck the referee!", and then the crescendo with the Hammarby club chant ("Bajen, beer and chicks that shave!") followed by "Henke Larsson! He blows! He blows in Helsingborg!"

+ a new Zlatan interview for anyone interestedCollapse )

Since I'm writing a paper due in just a couple of days, naturally I'm taking a break to do a really rather random Zlatan post.

Paris, Vincent, latest tattooCollapse )

So, as posted yesterday, Zlatan finally agreed to an interview with Aftonbladet (it's tradition for them to interview the Golden Ball winner, and he was the first player ever to get to three), and the result is a gem. I've translated some of the highlights, but the whole thing (4 pages!) is just lovely.

(You can read about his war with Aftonbladet at # 14 and 23 in this post, as well as in the prologue to it. The reason it's apparently over now is because the new editor wrote him a letter and told him to get over himself.)

***

Reporter: "The women I know are all impressed with the fact that you're living with Helena Seger, a woman more than 10 years your senior and an independent woman with her own career."

Zlatan: "Haha, they're impressed with her for standing me, you mean? At this point we've known each other for about 7-8 years, that's quite some time. It's felt right all along. She's gotten to know me, she understands what I'm about. I've gotten to know her, I understand what she's about. And she isn't fazed by my job, she knows I'll have to stay away a lot. She knows how it works.

We talk a lot. She'll tell me her ideas on all these issues. She's so fucking smart, she's so intelligent. I don't mean to brag about her, but she just is. And she's wicked in the kitchen. Okay, I'll brag about that."

Much moreCollapse )

I just have a tape of the documentary "Circus Zlatan", that aired last night. But I'm sure someone will put it on the net eventually, so I thought I should get a translation up, that might come in handy for people if they want to watch it.

Lovely interview, part ICollapse )

Tonight TV3 will air the much-awaited Zlatan documentary by Renée Nyberg (the one Swedish journalists that Zlatan deemed worthy). She was the only reporter who managed to get an interview with the then in hiding young man behind the Trustor raid in 1997 (the biggest and most ~devious~ corporate plundering in the history of Sweden; every Swedish guy who were a teenager back then will be able to tell you every dramatic detail of the trials and aftermath, and Zlatan, being no exception, has named one of his dogs "Trustor"). She also did a great interview with Zlatan's good friend, media-shy actor Mikael Persbrandt. By the looks of what's been shown already, it will be lovely.

I've celebrated the joyous event by translating two other, recent interviews with Zlatan by female reporters (since he will generally be more open and forthcoming in those), for anyone interested. They're long, so I chose the parts I thought were interesting.

TranslationsCollapse )

Yeah, so this is another Zlatan post, for no apparent reason other than that I needed a break from school. And I still squee over Vincent. <3
