A nice little interview in Goteborgs-Posten

There is a nice little interview with Salem from Göteborgs-Posten which is more 'personal' than some of the more recent interviews. Find it at:

I thought you might like a translation!

In the interview, Salem said that he has a girlfriend. (Planet Salem says: Salem's girlfriend is the luckiest girl in the world!!!!)

Salem went on to day that his first real relationship was during high school, and his first kiss was when he was either 14 or 15 years old or maybe earlier!

Salem said that in the past he had been unlucky in love, as he'd been in love with people who hadn't loved him back :(

Salem was asked if he'd ever had a celebrity crush: he said he hadn't, and had never been interested in them in that way.

He said he'd been single for long periods in the past and was close to friends and family, he also has a best friend.

The interviewer, Emma Bergström Wuolo, commented on Salem's music being happy. Salem said that he has a fairly positive view of life and thinks he always will have, although you can be more cynical when you get older. He went on to say that "it is clear that one can write about sad things, but in a hopeful way".

When asked which decade do you think has the best music, Salem thought about that for a while and then said the 60's, although he thought it was difficult to say why.

Finally, the interviewer asked why Salem dropped his surname in preparation for an international career; Salem said that many people in Europe will know how to pronounce Salem, but can't pronounce Al Fakir !!

I really enjoyed this interview. :))
