With all the photography in that mag you'd think they could get more/better photos with the interview . . .
This is what I came up with for translation with Google Translate and some editing--Stjepan was in serious "flirt" overload . . .If anyone has any better interpretations, please add them.
2CELLOS by Jojanneke Goedhart 10/17/2014 13:24
I'm about to interview Croatian 2CELLOS. I had not heard of Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, but after seeing their game on YouTube, I’m very impressed. A duo that is the icing on the cake in the field of classical music, but they immediately went viral through their masterful cello version of Michael Jackson with more than 6 million views. Since then, the men mega-toured with none other than Elton John; played a role in Glee; and appeared on the Ellen Degeneres show several times. Yes, I am therefore interviewing them for my "flirt"! [One of writer’s columns is called “The Flirt”]
They are waiting in the Amsterdam American Hotel; two beauties, I must admit.
Luka: "Love your hair." Stjepan: "Beautiful face." J: "Oh, thank you guys!" (This is a good start for a flirt)
J: Do you have a girlfriend? Luka: "Yes, I have a girlfriend." Stjepan: "Would you be my girlfriend?" J: "Uh, yes, maybe." Stjepan "Then I've got one." J: "In every town another babe, right?"
J: The extent to which love and music go together? Stjepan: "All the success we have achieved is because I was rejected by a girl. I came home one day and thought, F*** you b*tch and then “Smooth Criminal” was made. "
He improvises the number by Michael Jackson on a cello.
J: "And when she was suddenly back." Luka: "Haha, that's a real story, I can fix it."
J: Do you get a lot of female attention now that you're famous? Luka: "Yes, much more than before." Stjepan "Yes, I think that's sad. Three years ago you would not even want to talk to me. Actually, I'm mad at you. Women are attracted to many things out of love. "
J: What is love to you? Stjepan "I see love in your eyes. They radiate. " Luka: "When you meet the right person then everything is possible. It only gets stronger. If the passion is still there and you have moments that's worth the sacrifice of not being together. All those other times.”
J: What's the most romantic thing you've ever done? Stjepan "I gave an interview to a wonderful journalist and what happens next is history." Me: "Luka, maybe I can have a conversation with you. What is your most romantic act? " Luka: "It's not one-time things. It's about what you are doing each day, the attention you give to your loved one. " Stjepan: "That's right, it's not about a bunch of flowers, but the feeling. Do you feel it Jojanneke? " J: "Maybe I feel it when you play for me." Stjepan: "I will play for you."
J: What is your favorite clothing for women? Stjepan: "I love feminine. What you wear is the right look. It is a perfect combination of sexy and cute and beautiful and elegant. For example, I do not like it when women dress in same manner. As sexy or just cute. If they only dress cute, she is not sexy enough. If she's only elegant, it's even less sexy. It is about the combination. You look like the perfect woman for me. "
Luka laughs loud.
J: "And you, Luka?" Luka: "It's not just about looks, like he said. It is more about what you feel. If you look into the eyes of a woman. " Stjepan: "Do you have a business card? J: "Not with me."
Stjepan walks away and comes back with a sheet on which he has written his cell number and e-mail
Stjepan: "Call me, text me. If you want you can come to Geneva. Tonight. We are only there one day, but it is very nice and the city is beautiful. " J: "Uh, I love Geneva, but I'd rather not sleep with the ten other women you invited down. I’ll pass."
J: “What if you and I wake up tomorrow together? Luka: "I cannot because I have a girlfriend." J: "Yes, but just the scenario that you do not have a girlfriend?" Stjepan "Oh, I would have cuddled all night. If someone is beautiful I want every spot of her body as a pillow. And it would be great. Trust me, it would change your life. It would be the most beautiful night of our whole life." J: "Sounds exciting."
Stjepan appears to be a real charmer with humor, but you need the somewhat shy Luka if you are going for looks and true love. In addition, they are obviously fantastic on their cellos. I am in anyway for their concert!
