Singer Alla Pugacheva was summoned to the ministry.
Unusual facts from the life of Alla Pugacheva were revealed by music historian Mikhail Kunitsyn. Many years ago, the prima donna was called to the ministry for a “prophylactic conversation.”
Sergei Lapin, Chairman of the State Committee for Radio and Television Broadcasting, liked to talk to the People’s Artist.
“Sergei Georgievich, in conversations with Alla Borisovna, always asked: “Do you love Nadezhda Obukhova?” And Pugacheva answered: “Of course, I know her! But I’m also a singer, just different”, — said the music historian.
Alla Borisovna categorically did not like that she was compared with another singer and her repertoire. But Sergei Lapin simply adored Nadezhda Obukhova and tried to pass on his love to Soviet citizens. Therefore, during the years of the USSR there were so many programs on TV and radio dedicated to her.
She was not a competitor to Pugacheva, because at the time of Obukhova’s death, Primadonna was only 12 years old. But Lapin was interested in her opinion about his favorite, writes woman.ru.
