The grief-stricken singer criticized the Russian stage.
Sergey Penkin became one of the few stars who came to say goodbye to Valentina Legkostupova. At the farewell ceremony, the Prince of Silver did not have a face: it is too hard for him to experience the departure of his star friend.
The artist lamented: Valentina, a world-class singer, did not have the success she deserved. In recent years, the artist lived very modestly: she gave concerts, receiving not too large fees for her performances.
- Valentina is a talent! - could not contain emotions Penkin. - Such artists should be appreciated, and not those mediocrities who are now performing on stage. Appreciate while alive, not when they leave.
Sergei did not give his assessment of the tragedy that happened in the life of Valentina Legkostupova. After his emotional speech, he silently left.
It is still unknown where the ashes of Valentina Legkostupova will be buried. The last husband of the singer Yuri Firsov said: the artist dreamed that her ashes would be scattered over Tenerife. The star loved this place in the Canary Islands. She lived there for five years, doing real estate business.
However, star colleagues doubt Firsov's words. According to them, Legkostupova was not going to die. She was actively preparing for the 55th anniversary: she underwent a number of plastic surgeries and dreamed of being poisoned on a tour.
- Shortly before the tragedy, Valentina told me: "I finally felt what it is like to love and be loved!" - says the secular reporter Sobesednik.ru Denis Sorokin. - Our mutual friend, a concert organizer, asked: “Please, upload me to work. I have to spend my jubilee year on stage. " They had many touring plans. But, unfortunately, all of them were not destined to come true.
