Conchita Wurst, Stop Taking Over My Life (Video)

I wake up every morning, get started on my day, and always begin by saying to myself  “No more articles about Conchita Wurst today”.  Not because I don’t adore her, but because she’s beginning to take over my life.

But then, like today, somebody sends me the link to a new Conchita Wurst video that is beyond stupendous. And what do I do? Write about it. (She sings. I write. Sorry, that’s just the way it is).

Today’s I’m-Not-Going-To-Write-About-Conchita-Wurst is because of this video.  A video taken close up of Conchita Wurst singing ‘Rise Like a Phoenix’ at Padova Pride Village in Padua, Italy on Sunday. (A big thank you to Marie Claude Zanoni for the link).

Remember I told you she hit diva status yesterday with this very same performance? Here’s sterling proof.

And the only thing that came to mind when I watched it?

“It’s a good thing I’m not male, as I’d give everything I had to make her mine “.
