Do you do it, you live in a glass bubble, a fish bowl. There are too many intelligent, funny women who aren’t famous. To be honest, so many famous women I met are not the nicest people. Fame does strange place with people.
Want a child
To get married is not something Radin sees as a must. But he would like to have children.
– I can see myself getting married if I find the right woman. I have nothing against marriage but it does nothing if I do not marry. I don’t care about the document itself. But I would like to have children. It is something I think about more the older I get. I am not stressed but I like where I am in my life. My house is empty. It would be lovely to have a child or two running around.
You seem to be very in touch with your feelings?
– Yeah, I would definitely say. I think a lot of them and it is what I write about. I don’t have a problem with talking about how I feel.
How is it that you are so open?
– For that, I have nothing to hide. I have never done anything bad in my life. There is nothing I am ashamed, ” he says.
Radin about the friendship with Måns Zelmerlöw
– We released a duet together, on one of my songs called "Belong". I came to Stockholm last August, and so we sang it together on the "Sommarkrysset" at Gröna Lund.

Radin on his new album ‘The fall’
– the Album is about a relationship. And the resurrection and the case of the relationship. Fall can mean different things. I did not want people to know if it was about to fall for someone or fall for that a relationship is over. So I guess I want people to listen to the entire album.
