Elena Paparizou Life

Elena Paparizou (born 31 January 1982), also known as Helena Paparizou, is a Greek-Swedish singer, songwriter, and television presenter.

Born and raised in Sweden to Greek parents, she spent time in various arts colleges before starting a career in 1999 as a member of the lako (Greek folk music) and Eurodance duo Antique, which went on to become well-known. Antique was disbanded in 2003 and Paparizou signed a solo recording deal with Sony Music, focusing on lako, pop, and dance sounds, but first had modest sales, but not so much.

With the song "My Number One," she represented Greece in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005, she gained the first prize.

It was the first Greek victory in the competition's history, and it changed her life.

The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry of Greece later awarded her album double platinum.

Paparizou tried to work outside of Greece with English-language skills, charting in a handful of countries abroad.

Early life

Paparizou was born in Bors, Västergötland, Sweden, on January 31, 1982; she was the youngest child of Greek parents Georgios Paparizos (1948–2008) and Efrosyn "Froso" Paparizou. Paparizou's parents are from the Karditsa area in western Thessaly; she has a sister Aret, referred to as Rita, and a brother Konstantinos, who is called "Dinos." Paparizou's parents were born and raised in her mother's hometown before emig to Boris in 1970. Since Paparizou had asthma and her lungs could not cope with the damp Scandinavian climate, the family returned to Greece in 1985 to live in Volos with relatives. She was able to return to Gothenburg, Sweden, after two years. Paparizou spoke Greek as a first language on the trip to Greece and did not make friends with many Swedish children because she attended a Greek-language school. Paparizou suffers from respiratory difficulties and often wears an inhaler on stage.

Paparizou performed for the first time in front of a Greek audience when she was 11 years old, singing "Moro Mou" by Christos Dantis. Paparizou had decided she wanted to be a performer and began to study Greek music two years ago. Paparizou had formed Soul Funkomatic with three Hispanic teenagers by the age of fourteen. When saving money to buy albums, they jammed together; two years later, they disbanded. Thirteen of Paparizou's closest friends died in the Gothenburg nightclub fire at a hip hop festival on October 29, 1998, killing sixty-three people and injuring more than two hundred. She had begged her mother to let her attend the dance but she was not allowed to attend. Paparizou decided not to perform after losing her friends. She began attending classes at the Art Performing School, where she studied theater, acting, television, and directing.

Personal life

Paparizou was devoted to Buddhism at one time, but she eventually began following Eastern Orthodoxy because she believes it suits her better. Toni Mavridis, a Swedish-born Greek, was introduced by a friend of her sister's at a restaurant when she was 17, but Mavridis is 11 years older. Mavridis became an impresario for Antique and has written songs on all of Paparizou's solo albums. He also served as her boss. Mavridis knew Paparizou a month before they met in Stockholm; she moved with him. On December 24, 2000, the two families held a traditional Greek engagement party with their relatives, and they hadn't been engaged since. Paparizou has said that Mavridis has never officially suggested to her and that she would prefer that he do this in the Western tradition of going down on one knee. Mavridis suggested getting married in Las Vegas, but Paparizou has also selected a koumbara (the person chosen by the groom and/or bride to "crown" the wedding) (which is the Orthodox manner in which a couple marries).

Paparizou spoke on several occasions about starting a family with Mavridis; in Celebrity, Paparizou said, "I think that family is the most natural thing, the thing I want in my life."

And what is my preference?

If I don't have children, I can continue my work. It will be over in a day. I can't be on stage every day because I'm 25 years old. "No [Mavridis is not my first marriage], she said in Nitro, but I suspect he is my last. I want my children with him. I believe he is the best father they could have. "I don't have children with him, I will adopt." Paparizou said in the Life & Style issue for August that she wants to have a child within the next two years.

Paparizou took a break from the Greek music scene in 2011 and returned to Sweden alone. Toni Mavridis and her partner had been separated for almost three months and were planning to divide their shared wealth and selling their house, according to the newspaper. Mavridis announced on June 29 that he and Paparizou had ended their twelve-year relationship. Paparizou moved out of their house, while Mavridis remained. According to reports, he has ordered half of his shared wealth and assets, which included a second home in Chalkidiki, property in Sweden, a Ferrari, and joint bank accounts; their estate was valued between €6 million and €7 million. Mavridis' argument was that as her boss, he put the same amount of effort into asset accumulation as he planned and was present at all of her transactions. The couple were unable to agree on the financial details and had involved their lawyers with the possibility of allowing the judges to decide. Paparizou and Mavridis negotiated their differences out of court, and their Glyfada home was sold for €650,000 (€350,000 less than its purchase price). A portion of the money was supposed to be used to pay off their existing debts, while the remainder would be divided equally among the two parties.

Paparizou's father died suddenly from a heart attack during the family's Christmas Day festivities in Backa, Gothenburg, on December 25th. Paparizou's appearances in Greece were postponed until she was with her family in Sweden before resuming her performance. She later said she suspected that her father would have died if the ambulance had been sent, blaming medical incompetency. The ambulance was not allowed to enter the area without police protection because it was considered a 'no-goo' zone,' according to medical officials. Paparizou suffered from depression after her father's death, blaming it as the second time she had been suffering from depression since she was a child.

Paparizou began dating civil engineer Andreas Kapsalis in October 2012. They got married in Athens secretly in mid-2015.


Elena Paparizou Career


Paparizou's brother, Paparizou, asked Paparizou to make a demo of the Notis Sfakianakis hit "Opa Opa," but Paparizou wanted to perform with her childhood friend Nikos Panagiotidis because the lyrics were written from a male viewpoint. Any record labels, who were keen on a male/female duo to perform covers of traditional Greek songs, contacted Paparizou, who suggested Panagiotidis. The pair performed Antique and then signed to Bonnier Music, an independent label. They referred to themselves as "antique" because it gave the appearance of being "classical" and "timeless," and Paparizou's involvement of Greek music with the intention of it being remote, old-fashioned, and something of an acquired taste. Their debut single "Opa Opa" became a hit in Sweden and Norway, eventually advancing to the top ten in both countries, making "Antique" the first act to reach the Swedish top five with a song sung in Greek. "Dinata Dinata," "Follow Me" and "Moro Mou" were among Sweden's later singles to chart.

Despite being relatively unknown in Greece in 2001, the pair performed "I Would Die for You," composed by Nikos Terzis with lyrics by Antonis Pappas. They earned joint first place in Copenhagen, but the overall winners were announced in Copenhagen as "Antique" had also won the public vote and advanced to the 2001 Eurovision Song Contest. Their song gained third place with 147 points, the highest Greek Eurovision ranking at the time. It was Greece's biggest hit, achieving platinum status, peaking at number three in Sweden and charting elsewhere. Antique's Eurovision triumph earned more attention in Greece. They released four studio albums, but only moderately profitable, on a small European and North American tour, where they met with artists including Katy Garbi and Slavi Trifonov. Paparizou and Panagiotidis later decided to go solo for their careers. Paparizou was initially accused of abandoning her friend for her own career aspirations, according to the split's reviewer. Paparizou said the break was not permanent, but that it was a group decision to try other things, with the intention of a reunion in mind.

Paparizou signed a solo recording deal with Sony Music in late 2003 and debuted her debut single "Anapandites Kliseis" as a double A-side with "Treli Kardia." The publication was rated Gold by IFPI Greece and ranked first on the Greek Top 50 Singles Chart. Paparizou appeared on stage for many artists in Greece, including Antonis Remos and Giannis Spanos, Apostolia Zoi, Nino, Thanos Petrelis, Sakis Rouvas, and Giorgos Mazonakis. "Anapandites Kliseis" won the MAD Video Music Award for Best Dance Video in 2004 and was nominated for Best Video by a New Artist. Paparizou performed a duet of the song with its writer Christos Dantis at the award ceremony.

Paparizou's debut solo album Protereotita was released on June 27, 2004, from which the tracks "Anditheseis," "Katse Kala," and "Stin Kardia Mou Mono Thlipsi" were released as singles. Critics have mixed reactions to it. Paparizou's first Arion Award for Best Female Pop Singer, and her videos for "Katse Kala" and "Treli Kardia" received her MAD Awards for both Best Female Video and Best Direction, respectively,, as a result of her awards.

Paparizou moved permanently to Greece in 2004, and after a lengthy process led by national broadcaster Hellenic Radio and Television (ERT), she was chosen to represent Greece in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 held in Kyiv, Ukraine. ERT had envisioned Paparizou as a potential back-up singer for a well-known musician but those negotiations fell through. She said at the time that no one wanted her to compete in Eurovision and that no one wanted her to participate in Eurovision. The album "My Number One," composed by Manos Psaltakis with lyrics by Christos Dantis and Natalia Germanou, was chosen by the jury and telephone vote in the Greek national final.

Despite the fact that her first name is "Elena," Paparizou's campaign to distinguish herself from common names in other nations is "Helena." Helena continues to be identified as "Elena" on all non-Greek advertisements and launches, although she prefers to be identified as "Elena." Paparizou toured Europe to promote her Eurovision entry. Dimitris Avramopoulos, the Minister of Tourism, was appointed a Greek Ministry of Tourism ambassador during this period. He invested €500,000 in her bid to advertise Greece through books and advertisements that aired around Europe.

Paparizou won the Eurovision Song Contest on May 21, 2005, the first Greek victory in the country's history. Her results were 230 points and the maximum 12 points from ten countries. Her appearance was also responsible for the country's highest viewing ratings. Her triumph sparked mass celebrations on Athens' streets, and on her return home, she was lauded at a State reception hosted by Prime Minister Theodoros Roussopoulos, Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis, and other government officials. Paparizou's Eurovision triumph took her from a little-known celebrity to a well-known musician, solidifying her solo career and increasing foreign exposure. Victoria, the Crown Princess of Sweden, was on display at the birthday gala on July 14th. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden refused to acknowledge Paparizou instead of giving a handshake, causing uproar for placing his hand lower on her back than is socially acceptable. Later, the Royal Court released a statement claiming that his hand had fallen out.

Paparizou toured Europe, appearing in all the countries that gave her 12 points. In North America and Australia, Nikos Kourkoulis leads a tour of the Greek diaspora. Paparizou said that if she wanted to do something Eurovision-oriented again, it would be for her birth country Sweden, since she had her turn with Greece. Paparizou headlined at Fever for the 2005-06 season, supporting Christos Pazis and Giorgos Tsalikis, who appeared as an opening act on several occasions.

The album has been rated double Platinum by IFPI Greece following Paparizou's Eurovision victory and several reissues. It was reissued as Protereotita: Euro Edition in single and double disc format, as well as a collection in several European countries as My Number One, which peaked at number 13 in Sweden, in order to capitalize on this success. Paparizou's first album to debut at number one was awarded a second Arion award for Best Female Pop Singer. The songs "My Number One," "The Light in Our Soul," and "A Brighter Day" were singles, peaking at number one, three and twenty-four respectively in Sweden, and were minor hits in other countries as well. Moda Records with remixes first released "My Number One" in the United States in August 2006, peaking at number eight on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. "My Number One" was certified Platinum, marking her first number one airplay hit, while "To Fos Sti Psyhi"/"To Fos Sti Psyhi" hit the top at two.

Paparizou's latest CD single, "Mambo," was released in November 2005. "Weakness" - which peaked at number one on the Greek Singles Chart for ten weeks and the airplay charts, has since been promoted to Platinum status." It's her most well-selling single to date, and it's the second most well-selling single of 2005, surpassing "My Number One." In 2005, she performed "My Number One" at the MAD VMAs, and in 2006 she was nominated for Best Pop Video ("The Light in Our Soul"), Best Female Artist ("My Number One"), and Artist of the Year ("Mambo"), among other things. Protereotita: Protereotita + Mambo was reissued for the third time. In November, the company's name was changed to November.

Paparizou travelled to Sweden in the winter to work on her new album and spend time with her mother. For 2009, an English-language album had been released, but those plans didn't materialize due to Paparizo's sudden death. Three songs have been released, one of which is a salute to him.
