Conchita Wurst and celebrities with beard
Conchita Wurst won the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 with a score of 290 after a grandiose James Bond theme-like ballad, Rise Like a Phoenix, before a TV audience of around 180million people in 45 countries.
Tom Neuwirth aka Conchita Wurst used to be in Austrian boyband 'Jetzt Anders', looked as normal guy.
But later on Thomas returned to the show in 2011 transformed as Conchita Wurst complete with long hair, fluttering eyelashes and the now world-famous beard.
Conchita was then selected to represent Austria in this year’s Eurovision contest with her eventual victory sending Twitter into a frenzy, generating 5,384,678 tweets.
Accepting the trophy, he(she?) said: ‘This is dedicated to everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom. We are unity.
In our times of global emancipation there are a lot of women who adopted men’s habits. Well, that beard and mustache, they have not adopted yet? In majority – not yet, thanks to the God.
But who knows what may happen in the future.
Thus if it became fashionable (ladies with beard and mustache), we would see the following.
