We have known about Michael Starling existence since 2011, from 8 years. Since then, he’s been called colorful bird
of the Polish music scene, and secondly he is described as „controversial”. As I am not his obsessive
a fan in love with him, but only an objective observer and listener, so I don’t follow his career all the time.
Since I have been the owner of my own blog from several months, I decided to follow his current
Career and from the materials available on the internet try to find out why hi has been called „controversial” and
why he is underestimated and muddy by so many people, I will try to analyze his actions
as a public figure and artist and find out what the problem is. Here we go.
Michael Starling was born on November 26, 1990 in the city Jasło, zodiac sign Sagittarius, age 28, height 1.75.
Let’s start with the surname, the very surname may not be associated well for many people, and this is because it is
name of the popular bird. In Latin, the starling is: sturnus vulgaris, it is one of the most popular species
birds in the world, many people associate starlings as pests because they steal fruit: cherries, plums,
neither will they despise strawberries. Starlings have mean characters, open them repeatedly by walking on strawberries. It happened many times that i find a large, beautiful, red strawberry with a eaten center, only the shell from the whole strawberry they have left. They couldn’t eat the whole strawberry, why piss a man ? Every year my father plants a pumpkin and almost every year he got mad because of starlings, so to plant a pumpkin you need to soak pumpkin seeds in water so that it soaks up well and only such seeds are planted in the ground. When the seeds began to take root and grow, starlings for unknown reasons, pulled them out from the ground and most often it was not possible to save such a plant, pumpkin had to be planted again, starlings did not eat these plants, they pulled them out only for fun. Many people every year tries to fight with starlings in different ways, unsuccessfully often because starlings they have become accustomed to many human tricks and they do not make much impression on them anymore, starlings can only be used scare off firecrackers, only the sound of gunshots can frighten them. There are starlings that sit on elks and Bison and eat their parasites from their hair, helping to get rid of unwanted tenants.
People testing starlings they considered them to be very intelligent and resourceful, in Polish there is the term „fed by starlings”, meaning someone who is extremely clever and cunning, can cope in any situation, in olden times people have caught and ate starlings, they also easily got used to living in captivity. Mozart had a tame starling who he could sing a fragment of his 17th piano concert (KV 453) . He bought it from the store after hearing it
him singing a phrase from a work he had written six weeks earlier and not yet done in public. He became very attached to the starling and arranged a sophisticated funeral for him when he died three years later. According to some The musical joke (K. 522) could have been written in a comical, disordered style of a starling song.
We learned about the existence of Michael Starling during the broadcast of the first edition of X Factor in tv TVN in 2011. An unforgettable episode and an unforgettable performance of Michael, who sang a well-known song Czesław Niemen under the title: This world is strange. Let’s start with the audience’s reaction when he said his name
well let’s say it was a loud laugh. A surprise was the behavior of juror Kuba Wojewódzki, who he addressed to the audience immediately after her reaction asking for more cultured behavior and respect for the person present
on stage, he said about Michael that if he is an alien they will send him to his planet – „E.T. Go home” I had the impression that for a moment X Factor turned into one of the episodes of The X Files. What was the problem?
Answer the same as always when it comes to Michael Starling: hes look. When Michael participated in the X Factor
he was 20 years old and looked very colorful, in addition to the clothes and accessories he was wearing, he had long hair almost to belt and makeup on his face. Because mother nature gave him a very delicate type of beauty, even feminine some people thought he was a woman, Kuba Wojewódzki said before the show that Michael was looking like a women at the beginning but it turned out to be a guy. And in that moment I remembered the scene from the Hobbit movie, where Bilbo and his friends were guests at the elves’ dinner and one of the dwarf said to the other that one of the elves (women) he likes it and he pointed at her, his friend looked at her and then laughed and told him that it’s a man. When I saw Michael for the first time I had such an association that he looks like one of the elves from J.R.R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogy, these novels were directed by Peter Jackson.
Tolkien described the appearance of the elves as beautiful beings with a very delicate beauty, I saw these films and therefore it was mine first association when I saw Michael for the first time, Michael always wears a lot on his fingers jewelry so you can say that he is the lord of the rings and comparing his appearance to the elves from the novel Tolkien is OK. After the song „strange this world is” everyone were positively surprised by Michael extraordinary voice and talent, he went without problems to next episodes. From episode to episode, Michael showed that he knew well why he is there, each subsequent performance aroused enormous emotions and always positively surprised. Maja Sablewska has sad that his performance: I don’t wanna miss a thing- Aerosmith was reportedly weak, some time later it turned out that Michael was sick then, he had 39 degrees of fever and he didn’t try to defend himself against Maja Sablewska’s opinion by explaining that he was sick. Maja Sablewska accused Michael is overconfident and it is perceived negatively. I don’t know what kind of man he was then and an artist, I say this: if an artist performing on stage knows why he is there for, he also knows how much he can afford, what he has opportunities and wants to give the best performance, I don’t see anything wrong with being confident. If the singer is on stage for selfish reasons, that is, he only depends on fame, popularity, false flattery on artificial applause, in my opinion, viewers would see it. If the singer is trying to sing the best he can, make a show, how to best perform and doing it primarily for people and not for themselves to give people through for a moment entertainment at the highest possible level and knows what he wants, knows how he wants his performance to look like his confidence should be seen as a desire to express himself as an artist, a desire to give the best performance for people: I am here for you not for myself. If the artist gives the greatest joy and satisfaction positive the audience’s reaction to everything he does on stage, and he does it as best he can, gives his best to give the best performance is self-confidence is right there. As I wrote earlier, I have no idea what kind of man and artist Michael Starling was at the time and I do not know what his confidence resulted from. Today they sell best positive images and modesty, even false, but people are more sympathetic to those who show modesty. Participant in the same edition of Factor X Ada Szulc was in turn accused of lack of confidence during her performances, as they say: there hasn’t been born person yet that would please everyone. Michael Starling finished at second place in the final of X Factor and only he of all the participants is making a real career to this day. I believe that self-confidence in an artist who, like Michael, was endowed with such a wonderful voice, talent and sensitivity artistic is very much in place and there is absolutely nothing wrong or negative about it.
During the X Factor, Michael began to give interviews, in interviews from that period that he succeeded I can find myself on the Internet, you can see a very young man full of hope and enthusiasm. These hopes and enthusiasm were fueled by others, including Kuba Wojewódzki, who promised him a great career. For how I can remember Kuba Wojewódzki seemed to be a man who is well aware of this in which country he lives and what mentality has most of people in Poland, that’s why I was surprised at his confidence what to the great career and conquest of the Polish music scene by Michael Starling. I grew up in a traditional Catholic family and I was perfectly aware of the mentality of the vast majority of people in the Poland, and for that I knew that Michael would win a loyal group of fans but he would not win most people through it what it looks like. The salt in the eyes of many people was and still is his appearance, it does not matter what his voice is , how it can use it, what has talent and artistic sensitivity, what counts is how he looks and the end. Lack of tolerance, backwardness , talent and artistic sensitivity, what counts is how he looks and the end. Mental causes that Michael is repelled and rejected by many people only because of his appearance, instead of focusing on his voice and music, people focus on his appearance.
It’s how Michael has dressed since we met him and how he dresses now has changed a bit. Youth is only one and it is governed by its own rights, if someone for their own money earned and not offended nobody dresses colorfully, extravagantly, very original so that you can’t go wrong with anyone for others, I see nothing wrong, nothing bad, nothing negative. In Poland people were not used to it to view every day on the streets of the colorful and very original Michael Starling, if a man looks like this what it looks like, just because it is, it likes the style of dress, it expresses itself in this way, it has to it the law and no one should condemn him for what kind of man he is, I repeat if he doesn’t offend anyone and doesn’t hurts what’s wrong with that. Even when I was a religious and practicing Catholic, I didn’t understand why so many people react so negatively to the appearance of Michael Starling, I focused on his voice, what he is artist, his talent, his appearance was of secondary importance to me. After the broadcast of the first edition of X Factor Michael took part in many different programs, such as: Dancing with the Stars, Agent the Star, his roast was created, took part in the Culinary Program, Eurovision Song Contest. I haven’t seen his roast because of this type program and this type of humor are not my atmosphere, not my fairy tale, I do not like this sense of humor. I have not seen also dancing with the stars, or this cooking program. As for the Agent Stars program, I regretted dropping him out in episode 4, because he showed a lot of courage and showed that a small stature does not interfere with anything and not means that such a person is a challenge coward. As for the basketball player, there is no growth and no looks like Pudzian, I will mention a few names of people who also had an appearance and yet achieved success and are legends to this day: Louis de Funes 1.64, Prince 1.60, Michał Wołodyjowski, Napoleon Bonaparte 1.69, Danny DeVito 1.47, Pablo Picasso 1.63, Albert Einstein 1.75, Edit Piaf 1.47, Bruno Mars has 1.65 Height and slim figure does not indicate someone’s intelligence or talent or lack thereof, it doesn’t matter how you look. There was a lot of people who accused Michael of taking part in all possible tv programs, if you come to a city like Warsaw and you don’t smell penny and you would like to live there because your future is closely connected with this city and your family can’t afford to help you then you manage how you can and you take advantage of every opportunity that comes along. If he wanted to live in Warsaw and he is not it’s a cheap city, to earn a living there you have to earn a lot of money there is absolutely nothing wrong with the fact that he took part in various programs to organize and maintain somehow at the beginning, no honest work is dishonorable. Later we can observe that Michael does not participate in all possible industry events, we do not see him posing on the walls at all possible banquets that are organized. When it comes to giving interviews and photo sessions for colorful newspapers, this is not too often. However, when it comes to I will say breakfasts tv like this: Poland is not the USA, almost every TV station has its own talkshow and breakfast TV is their really a lot, in the US there are a lot of different colored newspapers more or less respected so the stars have something to choose where they want to promote themselves and their work. In Poland, this is what you see, there is not too much choosing where to promote yourself and your work, there are interviews in various internet projects. Although the internet has become a huge competition for tv, tv is still a powerful medium reaching millions of people. Many people think that being on the covers of such or other newspapers is a shame that they participate in such or other programs are a disgrace, as I wrote earlier, no honest work disgraces where the artist should go when I want to promote my work if the choice is not big? Let us remember that Poland is not the USA. We can observe that Michael Starling is an ambitious man who does not want to change into small things, he respects himself, but sometimes he has to compromise to promote your work. A few sentences about interviews with Michael. What I was able to find on the internet shows that it is first an intelligent man who thinks well about what he would like to say, and secondly is a man cultural, who in his statements tries not to be controversial and tries not to offend anyone, also rarely uses words which could be described as non-parliamentary, meaning it doesn’t use vulgar words. My two favorite interviews with him It’s No. 2 Driving stars, my No. 1 is his first participation in the Kuba Wojewódzki talk show. Observing his activity in social media, we can observe that he does not get into the „mouth” of others, he once said that he does not like to argue, he tries to avoid conflicts, many other celebrities repeatedly she seemed to get into public quarrels and mouths. It can be said that Michael Starling has a character like Mahatma Gandhi or peace and love for everyone. Many public figures who are under constant observation of opinions public not once let go of nerves and bad luck often it ends badly. In 2015 there seemed to be not much, but as it turned out drastic change in the appearance of Michael face, due to the appearance of facial hair on his face. Looking at photos side by side in front of and with stubble is difficult believe that he is the same person and yet so. Because I didn’t follow Michael all the time when I saw him with stubble, it was hard to believe that it was really him. When I got used to his new look, it’s mine the first association was that it looks like one of the musketeers, I’ve seen many musketeer movies for that that was my first association. And with the new look started again, there were many people who thought it looks like Conchita Wurst and I think this is bullshit, these two people look completely different and are not at all together similar. Many people were outraged by saying that Michael looks like Jesus, one could say which country such associations. Being a religious and practicing Catholic, I remembered looking at Michael new face that in the 1980s many men had long hair because that was the fashion then hippies, and secondly in the ’60s and’ 70s, children of flowers also wore long hair.
One of the most important commandments given by God to people is: love your neighbor as yourself.
There is nothing about the Bible that: if you don’t like your neighbor, throw it at eggs and vulgar insults.
There was a lot of people who claimed that Michael doing covers for someone else’s career, I will tell you what I
I think about it. If a singer like Michael Starling was endowed with such a crazy voice as he was endowed
performs very difficult and demanding songs that were once performed by others and he succeeds in them
to bear it, I believe that he deserves respect for courage in choosing songs. In many type programs
talent show we can see different singers who perform their versions more or less known
songs and all those vocalists who manage to support the song they have chosen always get positive
assessment. It is a real art to perform a song that is very difficult, demanding and do not slaughter it, do not make yourself
ridicule, go out with your face. Let all those who criticize Michael for making covers try to sing
them like him, we’ll come back to the subject. Michael Buble won the hearts of millions of people around the world by recording and
performing covers, he made a global career and made millions, why he is allowed and Michael is not allowed. My
in the opinion if young and talented vocalists perform songs that are very often for young generations
underestimated or not very well known, or known to all hits in new versions is in my opinion such
the singer builds a bridge between generations. Courage in choosing a well-known hit means that the singer does not
he is afraid of comparisons because he is aware of his capabilities and that he will be able to cope with the challenge.
I see nothing wrong in building bridges between generations and certainly not by a singer like Michael
Starling, he is allowed and even should cover because he has a voice and talent that can cope with everything.
Regarding Michael concerts, unfortunately I have never been to any of them, I only saw what can be found in
online or live tv broadcasts. In my opinion, Michael got all the necessary conditions for stars
world-class, of all the currently known vocalists is the only exportable for
border, we have something to show ourselves with in the world. Looking at foreign charts there is no singer similar to
Michael, he doesn’t imitate anyone, he has his own unique style, he is ambitious, he doesn’t change into small things, he respects himself.
Propo to follow, despite the fact that 8 years have passed since the first edition of X Factor, we do not see Michael earning extra
doubles, many people try to imitate those who have succeeded with varying degrees of success. Imitating someone else’s
style does not guarantee success, it is better to be ambitious and develop your own style, your own brand.
Michael said in an interview that artists are not respected in Poland and I agree with it 100%
Unfortunately, there are many artists who do not respect themselves, if the artist does not respect himself, others will not
They respected. Watching and listening to Michael music on YouTube, I can see how many views each of the songs has, from the side I can see
other songs and their number of views and I will tell you that I often get deep sad because of mainstream music
disco polo is unfortunately more popular in our country, which I think is very sad. I get the impression
there are more people in our country who cannot appreciate good music, apparently tastes are not talked about, but
should. In my opinion, disco polo music is dangerous because it has a slimming effect, I am absolutely a fan
I’m not this type of music, but if I’m in the company of people who like this music, it happens that unfortunately
involuntarily I start humming the words of these songs and I even dance and jump with them and that’s why I think that this music is EVIIILLLLLLL ! and this should be banned. Someone on a website once compared our disco polo to
country music, it’s like our national country, and you spoke on it man? How can you compare
country legend like Johnny Cash for any disco polo artist?
When I found out that Michael Starling became a trainer in The voice of Poland, I was curious how he was doing in this role.
There was a lot of rumors on the internet that he is said to be a „star” manner, that other trainers do not like him and engage with him
into conflicts, well, if you are an artist like Michael, it’s not difficult to get such opinions, which doesn’t mean that they have to be
true. Television has its own rules, and The Voice Of Poland program requires trainers to be like that and not
others, this is the format of this program and in all countries that have their voice of is similar. My
according to Michael, he is perfect for this program, as if this program was created for him. First
has the ability to show constantly new styles, and secondly the program gives him the opportunity to perform
different songs and to the delight of the audience to show off his vocal abilities, thirdly his approach
to program participants (vocalists) and to the audience. In a word, he is a man in the right place.
While browsing materials about Michael on the Internet, a thought came to my mind: what would happen if it were still in Poland?
was compulsory military service. A terribly sad thought because in the army he would not be allowed to stay long
hair and his own style of dress, he would probably stand dressed in camouflage on the training ground and sing a song like my rosemary.
What I respect Michael for is also that he is not politically engaged in public, he never belonged to any party and
he never publicly supported any party, he remains neutral.
You can’t fault the music Michał creates because he doesn’t offend anyone with his music. If he created
such music and music videos such as the band Behemoth or Marilyn Manson, for example, could happen to many people
dislike if, for example, during one of the concerts he bit off the bat’s head like Ozzy Osbourne’s
it would be terrible too. Unfortunately, there is nothing to fault, which side to look at is nothing to do
attach. Catholics put their hands on their chest three times during each mass, each time
they say: my fault, my fault, my very big fault. Michael biggest fault is his appearance, salt in his eye
people is his style of dress and that he has somewhere what people think about him, people are measured by his courage in being always himself
Once, when ripping a page from a calendar, I read such words: two things are endless, the universe and human stupidity.
This world is strange, and even stranger are people who reject a real artist and his work only
because he doesn’t look like a stereotypical guy. I am asking people to use their minds and have open minds, let us be
tolerant. I wish Michael such a long and colorful career as Mick Jagger has. Here you can listen his music : www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVI6LGakT4c
My favorite songs performed by Michael are:
5 Colour of your life
4 Moja miłość największa
3 Dziwny jest ten
