52-year-old Angelica Varum rarely communicates with journalists and does not like to be frank about personal matters, so each of her interviews arouses increased public interest. Today, an interview with the singer appeared on Irina Shikhman's YouTube channel, in which Varum spoke about her attitude to sex after 50 and infidelity.
Recall that in recent years, rumors have often appeared in the press about the betrayal of Leonid Agutin, with whom Varum has been married for more than 20 years. This year, Agutin himself publicly spoke about one episode when he kissed a stranger at a party. The singer did not seek to comment on these conversations, but in a conversation with Shikhman she shared her thoughts on how to deal with difficulties in family life. Angelica said that she would not want to delete even difficult moments from the common history with her husband, since “she grew up with them.” The star also compared betrayal to a tsunami, “which is ridiculous to be offended.”
When you are in a relationship for 10-15 years, you will feel that your attitude towards the person who is next to you is changing. The moments that were prioritized when you first started your relationship are changing. The next question is only how much you can live in a new incarnation. It's ridiculous to be offended by the tsunami! But the tsunami takes the lives of people. It is completely pointless to be offended. You can understand and forgive, or you can understand and not forgive. And it's your choice
– said Varum.
The singer also noted that it is quite possible to forgive sincerely, but added that advice on this topic cannot be given, since “everyone must go their own way.”
Angelica Varum and Leonid Agutin
When I first faced the question of whether I could go further in life alone, I realized that it even physically hurts me. I was very surprised because I am a freedom-loving person. Until a certain moment it seemed to me – “suitcase in hand, everyone is free.” And the moment when you realize this hole, when you imagine that this person is not in your life, you understand that you are addicted,
– said the singer.
In a conversation with Shikhman, Varum also told why she is now not interested in her early repertoire and does not want to perform with it.
Age on stage matters. The main thing for me is the repertoire. Something that the audience wants to listen to, I can no longer afford to voice on stage, because it is ridiculous due to age. Turns out a 52-year-old aunt – and “let's start a fire!” There is something unhealthy about singing about sex after 50. It's time to think about the soul. It's just that this topic is so primitive and so irrelevant at the age, starting from the age of, probably, from 40 (at least for me), it is not even so secondary that it is simply ridiculous to sing it out,
– shared Varum.
