Nina Hagen about Pussy Riot: I appeal to Christian heart of Russia

meeting in person. 57-year-old Nina Hagen is a German singer and actresswho grew up in East Berlin called "the queen of punk rock". In the 1970-s she was deprived of the GDRcitizenship and emigrated to Great Britain, where she found herself in a popularyouthmusical direction - punk rock. Then she moved to Germany and got her top success in 80-s. In DW interview Nina Hagen shared her opinion concerning the lawsuit of Pussy Riot, spoke about her past, and also about why she believes in justification of Russian punk band participants. DW: On Monday, July 30, in Moscow there will be a lawsuit of Pussy Riot punk band participants. What do you think of this matter? Nina Hagen: I want to ask the Russian government and my Orthodox brothers and sisters to show mercy. These are absolutely young, hot-tempered persons (participants of Pussy Riot - DW) who've gone too far. Probably, many people apprehended their activity in church as provocation. But I appeal to Christian heart of Russia and I ask to show mercy to these young people. They won't do such nonsense any morefor sure . They surely have understood a lot of things. I hope that Russia will show its big heart again.

"That's why the lady is a punk"
Nina Hagen about sound, concerts, family, religion and social engagement
She is called the German Godmother of punk: Catharina "Nina" Hagen, born on the 11th of March, 1955 in Berlin-Friedrich's grove. She was known in the GDR as a singer of the group "Automobil" and „Fritzens Dampferband". Their song „You have forgotten the colour film" („Du hast den Farbfilm vergessen") has meanwhile cult status.
In 1976, after the deprivation of citizenship of her stepfather Wolf Biermann, Nina Hagen left for England from the GDR. Punk was announced. Then she moved to West-Berlin, where it properly overshot. As a punk rock singer she sprinkled regularly all taboos and morality images.
Her best records are called as follows: an album "Nina Hagen Band" of 1977, the disc "Unbehagen" which was recorded in 1979 in the Hanse recording studios in Berlin, and the gospel CD „Personal Jesus" (2010). In the end of 2011 Nina has published her new disc "Volksbeat". Her life stations are as coloured and fluorescent as she herself: besides, she lived in England, in Los Angeles, in Paris, on Ibiza and in India. Religiousness belongs to her life. Just as social engagement. Andreas Düllick spoke for the Street Brush with the unfathomable Nina Hagen.

"The World Mind Is An Intrigant”
Nina Hagen is sitting in a suite on the 15th floor of Hilton in the town park and is just amending her bird of paradise-like make-up which has easily been affected by the summer heat. Her hair being pitch-black, the lipstick gaudy red, the plateau shoes adorn the colours of the US flag. On her head she carries a little pink crown, matching pink points on her dress.
A guitar leans nearly towards the couch . Though she remains untouched during the interview, it might also not be quite a normal conversation, however: The 57-year-old German rock singer, actress, author, „Godmother of punk" and since 2009 also baptised Christian does not just give answers. She gesticulates, rolls her eyes, changes the vocal range, praises the Lord and starts singing in the middle of the interview.
Is Nina Hagen crazy? A little bit maybe already. But it is a charming, winning and consistent madness which she has been cultivating in about four-decade of being in show business. In 2010 the singer celebrated her comeback after long break with the gospel rock record „Personal Jesus"; in the end of the last year it was followed by the German album "Volksbeat" which Nina Hagen brings to two concerts in Austria these days.

Alle Wollen In Dem Himmel
Nina Hagen "for eight years single".
In the Viennese town park Nina Hagen speaks of her faith, her life and her sexuality. The guitar on the back, a pink little crown in the black hair. "I like this because I feel like a small school girl", says the 57-year-old German Rock-Punk-Gospel-Soul-Blues-Tube. Above the leggins there is a spotted minidress. Deep black make-up on eyes, gaudy pink-coloured lips. This is Nina Hagen!
Happily and affectionately, like an angel on earth, she hops on her platform soles about the Viennese town park, waves to the homeless, welcomes a veiled woman with "Salem Aleikum" and stops with known psychiatrist Reinhard Haller at Plauscherl. He comes out as a big Nina Hagen fan and asks for a photo.
