Rolling Stone, a site that continues to follow Italian popular culture, has put Erika Vikman, who is seeking a position as a visa representative, in the limelight in the New Music Competition.
However, in Italian style, Rolling Stone has a bit of the facts, as Vikman is allegedly Norwegian. The magazine reports that Ilona Staller, known as Cicciolina, the ex-politician of the Love Party, known to all Italians, has now emerged in the Eurovision Song Contest.
Cicciolina's style includes innocent dress and a bear that she always carries with her.

The title still talks about a Finnish artist, but by getting into the body text, Vikman has changed to a Norwegian artist.
The article describes how Vikman mimics Cicciolina with her dress style and performance. To the end of the news, Rolling Stone has also picked up lyrics from a Vikman song translated from Finnish into Italian in a rather free style.
A carelessly constructed article ends with a strange ending.
- Well, now you're in control. At the end of the story, Vapise, Diodato, is acknowledged in a sarcastic tone.

Antonio Diodato is an Italian singer and songwriter representing Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam. Diodato will compete against Vikman in the visa final if the former Tang Queen is chosen to represent Finland in the UMK final and will advance to the semifinals.
Ilona Staller moved to Italy at the age of 19 after marriage. Originally featured on the sex-counseling program Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, which was originally aired on the radio, he established a career as an adult star, both in nude and in porn movies.

Known for catching her breast, Cicciolina was also involved in politics. He was elected in 1987 from the Radical Party lists to the House of Representatives, where he sat for one term. Nowadays, Cicciolina also makes singing and performance gigs.
Italy is one of the five major contributors to the Eurovision Song Contest, along with France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom, and is therefore heading straight for the finals.
Erika Vikman, Aksel Kankaanranta, F3M, Sansa, Catharina Zühlke and Tika will compete for the position of Finnish visa representative. Competitors' songs will be released during the spring. The UMK finals will take place on March 7 at Mediapolis Tampere.
