The flamboyant nature and suggestive statements of Montenegro’s Eurovision representative Slavko Kalezić may have caused backlash for the singer in his homophobic homeland, but they happen to be the very reasons we can’t get enough of the eccentric performer.
Kalezić, who declared “I am your queen!” after he earned a spot in the Eurovision semi-finals, is one of the most talked about contestants in this year’s competition, largely due to his lavish costumes, long pony tail and vivacious video for his song, “Space.”
But it’s the singer’s hilarious media interviews that reveal his playful personality and really leave us wanting more.
One of the most flamboyant in the bunch comes courtesy of a very flirtatious chat with Wiwibloggs, in which he discusses Eurovision’s 2017 theme, “Celebrate Diversity,” and talks about being compared to former Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst.
Kalezić first gained notoriety in 2013 for his performance of Beyoncé’s “End of Time” on the first season of Serbia’s X Factor Adria, which you can check out in the clip below.
Eurovision Song Contest will air live on Saturday, May 13, at 3pm EST/12pm PST on Logo.
