Da parvónia para o mundo

Can´t believe it’s really you:

“I have been so lucky, I am the girl with golden hair,” Agnetha, 63, sang in   ‘Thank You for the Music’. Even if the audiences believed it, she knew it   wasn’t true. Agnetha had always felt herself to be the odd one out in Abba.   She lacked the confidence and the vigour of the others, her English was less   fluent, her poise less assured, and when the band became a global phenomenon   in the mid-Seventies she felt unable to establish a distinct personality.

While the other members, Björn, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad   revelled in the fan worship and the perks of fame, Agnetha yearned only to   be home. “I’m a country bumpkin,” she told her (ex) friend and biographer,   Brita Ahman. “I’m not a showgirl. The others like to party. I like to be by   myself.” Performing in public filled her with dread, and although she   understood the commercial drawing power of her leggy figure and   blonde-bombshell looks, she was never comfortable as a sex symbol.
