DBTV: Tarkan Interview at NYC Fashion Week

WEB2Tarkan might not yet be a household name in the United States, but with his forthcoming album – star studded with collaborations featuring some of the hottest US artists, it soon will be unforgettable. In Europe, Russia, and especially Turkey, the press has compared his effect to that of Elvis’ on the US in the 1950s. Tarkan, famous for his spellbinding performances, is an award winning German-born, Turkish pop-singer known as the “prince of pop” by the media on the other side of the Atlantic. He has several multi-platinum selling records, with a total of over 15 million albums sold.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

WEB14Check out my interview with Tarkan at the Emilie Humanitary fundraiser at Fashion Week in NYC where we discuss his humanitarian, environmental, and animal causes in addition to music such as his fighting of a controversial dam in Turkey and his collaboration with PETA to help animals like strays in Turkey and those typically used in the fur industry.

Tarkan was confronted by PETA in 2008 for wearing fur on the cover of his album. Once he learned of the plight of fur-bearing animals, he made an apology and has sworn it off. He also really enjoyed the Dr. Cow’s vegan cheese I gave him, and I hope to get the opportunity to prepare him a full vegan meal soon!

    Thanks for posting this interview. I’ve put it on my profile in facebook and wanted to let you know that an English-based interview with Tarkan really helps get the word out on environmental issues that don’t usually get much air time (dams). Also seeing his beautiful smile (as well as the rest of him) is an added bonus.
    Last of all, his video has given me the opportunity to find out about your website. Awesome recipes! Definitely bookmarking this site.
    Thanks again!

    It’s fin again. I wanted to post pics of Hasankeyf; that’s the area that Tarkan mentions in your interview. If the damn is built the entire area will be underwater.

    These pics were posted tonight on ntvmsnbc and I thoought of your interview and your site while clicking through them. The captions are in Turkish but you can flip through all of the pics by clicking on the arrows or number menu on the bottom.

    The concert of Tarkan on 14 December 2008, Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam was great. I’ve sung a duet with Tarkan. Next time I’m going with him on the picture 🙂 That is much more fun 🙂
