“I would have to have a super mega team, a super giga mega track, everyone’s support. Maybe it would be worth fighting together. However, if I had to compete and take part in some competitions between labels and fans, I certainly wouldn’t do it.” – she commented in an interview with “Fact” in the fall in the context of a possible fight for Eurovision.
