Conchita Wurst has been very busy since her victory in the Eurovision song contest 2014 in Copenhagen two weeks ago. She's been to London and done various TV-shows, has given a home coming concert in Vienna, she's been honored with a sausage (and ice cream apparently on the way, too, with the taste of.... sausage, bien sur!) and she has also set the catwalm on fire in Cannes film festival besides getting compliments from likes of Elton John, Cher and many others. And she may or may not open for the Lady Gaga concerts - that was apparently all made up but who knows, maybe Gaga got interested and makes it happen?
And how did Ms Wurst comment on her sausage? "It looks good, but I never thought it'd be so huge!" Priceless. Conchita came face to face with tha sausage when visiting her hometown. Butcher Joe Aichinger lives next door to her childhood home in Bad Mitterndorf and created the sausage for her honor. "It's spicy, just like her" he says. And apparently it is selling well. According to reports, village priest Michael Unger is also a fan of her sausage. He said: “I am proud that she stands true to herself."Newsnight she discussed Russia and its politicians that are against her. "This is a very big honor for me. Because they think I'm that powerful to burst the whole country so, thank you! ... But you see I'm number on on iTunes in Russia and it's a huge thing for me actually,"
In The One Show she met with Sophie Ellis-Bextor and was really in good spirits, and came up with this fabulous line: "I have to say when famous politicians say I'm the reason Europe is crashing into pieces... I have to say I never received a bigger honor... because they think I'm that powerful. Thank you. I don't want to disappoint you but I'm just a drag queen!"
And last night she did G-A-Y in London singing Believe, That's what I am, Rise like a Phoenix and My heart will go on, could you ask for more? Watch it here. Rather triumphant I'd say!
