Marie as the cover girl of Finnair’s in-flight magazine

"Soaking up the summer with Marie Fredriksson" says the front cover of June-July issue of Blue Wings, Finnair's in-flight magazine. The magazine contains a 3-page interview with Marie, including some very nice pictures from the shooting of "Anyone" and some more recent pictures, one of them right there on the front cover.

The article is about Marie's summer tour, but it also covers some bits of her past. They mention that "the Internet has been buzzing with requests for her to get back on stage" and that "it was strong pressure from fans that finally got her back on tour".

Marie is described as a strong performer. "Otherwise quiet and reserved, and even serious, according to some, she undergoes a personality change on stage, where she's in her element. You can see she's brimming with confidence, and obviously enjoys the adulation received by a born performer."

But Marie hasn't always been high on self-confidence. "I was 30 when we were an international success. Of course, it was fantastic, but, at the same time, I had an empty feeling inside. A difficult time in my life," Marie tells. Everything changed when Marie met her husband-to-be Mikael Bolyos and had her first child. Her life settled into a better balance. "The basis for marriage is a good relationship. That's what I have. I'm very lucky to have such a good husband," Marie says.
