The Grand Prix

Jenny Berggren in Grand Prix
Tomorrow I will be there and start to set up all things for the show on the 26:th.
I can’t wait.

’There’ is of course in Copenhagen, the capitol of Denmark.

I am so happy to be able to work in Denmark again.
I know the language since twenty years soon, because of all the times I have worked there.
I know the streets, the best shops, designers and so on. I know the sound of the clock from Rådhuspladsen.

When I was twenty-one and walked the streets of Copenhagen as a young pop star, I had a vision of that Copenhagen was the very best city in the world. I still do.
It has everything. I remembered I loved the story behind every corner of the city. I heard many and lost them into my inner memories, still creating a good spirit.

Then I got the chance to see for the very first time a country in miniature, since I was for the first time traveling a whole country in only a few weeks. It was just before Christmas in the 90’s and we left for a small tour.
I saw everything through the hungry eyes of a young person:
The windpowerstations, the audience, the smell of sugarcanes factories, the hills and wide stretched landscape, the ”GaJol” candy and the Citronvann sodas I grew to love, the drinking tap water, The prescription for a great evening according to the pair-dancing in inner Jylland, in all the mentality of a whole people humble before the arts, because they are covered with it in various ways.

I learned to love Copenhagen and Denmark. The Danes granted me an entrance into their school of pop stardom, and they gave me a wisdom I could live with. ”Be yourself. I am!”

I took my first step as an artist in this country, witch airport always saw a tired 20 year old girl returning home, transfer traveling to Gothenburg, my home city. I was the only one who had taken of my shoes. I relaxed because I felt like home, and then I didn’t need any shoes on my feet anymore. This barefoot behavior of mine has only happened in my own house and … in Copenhagen, Denmark:)

    Dear Jenny, I love the way you sing and write. I cannot take lyrics, melodies, moods of your album “My story”, out of my head. I think it’s a masterpiece.
    Ok, I just want to tell you this.
    Jenny n. 1!
    Greetings from Italy

    Jenny will always live in her sister’s shadow as she has always been the less talented of the two. Jenny should just go back to sucking her Z-Lister husband’s dick or better yet, guest star in an episode of South Park with the Battletoads guest starring as well and go fight and get her leathery ass kicked by the totally disgusting Robo-Manus mutant because Jenny would just stand there getting shot like an idiot whereas Malin knows how to crouch to avoid getting plastered!

    PS – Oh by the way, Jenny’s album was number 48 on the Swedish album charts. Can you say DUD?

    @brother bruce
    I bet you could beat the crap out of that Z-Lister husband of hers…then again you can’t even beat the Mega-Walker at the end of the FIRST level of Battletoads for the NES! So scratch that. Once a loser, always a loser.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
