EBU released a statement over Måneskin’s Green Room event.
Speculations of Måneskin’s Damiano (lead singer) taking cocaine during the voting in the green room have risen in the media. Without any evidence, people started spreading the news due to a segment of the televised show where Damiano bend over.
The speculations spread with the speed of light. At the winner’s press conference a journalist asked the group. Damiano refused that takes drugs.
I don’t use drugs. Please, guys. Don’t say that really, no cocaine!Damiano
The band has announced that they are willing to take a drug test as soon as possible!
EBU Regarding The Event
Earlier today, EBU released a statement saying that indeed they found broken glass on Måneskin’s green room space, but they cannot organise a drug test on such short notice.
We are aware of the speculation surrounding the video clip of the Italian winners of the Eurovision Song Contest in the Green Room last night. The band have strongly refuted the allegations of drug use and the singer in question will take a voluntary drug test after arriving home. This was requested by them last night but could not be immediately organized by the EBU. The band, their management and head of delegation have informed us that no drugs were present in the Green Room and explained that a glass was broken at their table and it was being cleared by the singer. The EBU can confirm broken glass was found after an on site check. We are still looking at footage carefully and will update with further information in due course.EBU – see the statement here!
Even if Måneskin wanted to take drugs, I don’t understand why people think they would do it in the green room with many people around them. Personally, I believe that the haters of the song are just sad because their favourite song didn’t win. Måneskin represents the rock and roll sound, but rock and roll don’t mean drugs!
Until further information on the event, you can rewatch their performance below!
