Zemfira is not fated to become the philosopher.

The most well-known student of philosophical faculty of the Moscow State University is threatened with deduction. Apparently, the singer has decided to study sciences of Aristotel and Gegel in absentia. As "Komsomolskaya Pravda" writes, for all semester she has never appeared at lectures. Moreover - winter session is ignored by Zemfira too. She didn`t come on the examination which was passed on 27th of December, after what a serious conversation with a dean of faculty Vladimir
Vasilevich Mironov existed! He explained to the future philosopher, that the question costed sharply enough: or she undertakes study, or will be deducted. However on the 11th January examination on logic has passed too without Zemfira`s participation, and she has not found time to warn a dean's office about the absence. If student Ramazanova will ignore also the third examination, deduction is inevitable - by the rules of the Moscow State University.

Zemfira will act with Queen.

After a joint performance of Zemfira and Queen at the Russian Music Awards ceremony in the Kremlin and during the afterparty for the musical "We Will Rock You", the English musicians sent the Russian singer an invitation to continue the creative collaboration. The essence of the offer is extremely simple: to continue in the same role, but to a much greater audience. As a concert venue, Queen have suggested the Red Square - it was probably recommended by McCartney as a very good place for
a rock concert. Also, there is even a chance that president Putin will come to listen the concert. Zemfira immediately agreed to Queen`s offer. Now Roger Taylor`s and Bryan May's representatives carry on with negotiations for the formal aspects of the future super-concert. Russia didn`t see Freddie Mercury, but it does not mean that we cannot hear Queen. Perhaps, Zemfira is the correct choice to give us the sensation of real Queen`s magic in Moscow.
