    1. OH NO!! not again that super-short white haircut for Marie. She looked so stunning good and young on those new promo-photos with the longer hair.

      Could someone please hide shaver and scissor from Marie’s hairstylist!?

    2. @RealSugar: I know i thought the same!!! She just looks so much better with the longer hair!! Not sure why she wants to keep it soooo short?! Anyway we’ll see how it looks all styled up! She can still look great if only she’d let that hair grow out a bit : P

    4. Marie’s hair does look whiter and shorter, yes!! It looks better when she let them grow and let the “brown” roots show. Looks more natural – but hey, she looks good. Looks like her old self. I guess she likes the short hair.

      Can’t wait to see what they play and how the stage will look like. I hope they put the whistling back in Joyride and the balloons!!

    5. Those russian papers are even writing about their demands, and what roxette is talking about while dining…

    6. 1 million tickets? Do they mean actually sold, or sold to ticket agencies? Would like to think they’ve sold that many as that would be amazing.
