The fashionable foreign word “influencer” sometimes puzzles and even frightens ordinary people, but don’t worry – this concept has nothing to do with sexual deviations. Influencers are now called those who, due to their charisma, popularity, experience and other virtues, are able to influence the broad masses (influence in translation from English is “influence”). The research holding Romir quarterly polls Russians over 14 years old to identify the main influencers in various categories. There is also a Music category in these studies, in which the most influential pop and rock performers compete.
Another musical hit parade of influencers brought unexpected results. The surprise here is, first of all, that Alla Pugacheva lost her usual leadership. As can be seen from the rating, Alla Borisovna consistently ranked first in it for a year (previously the situation was similar), and suddenly – a failure. The prima donna did not even roll back to second, but immediately to fourth place, losing the throne, which is symbolic, to her ex-husband Philip Kirkorov. Also, Oleg Gazmanov and Olga Buzova turned out to be higher than Pugacheva (she, if suddenly someone is not in the know, also considers herself a singer).

For Alla Borisovna, it is difficult not to associate such results with recent events – we recall that for about six months the People’s Artist of the USSR has been abroad, away from the people who are slowly ceasing to believe in their favorite. Yes, Pugacheva has repeatedly emphasized that her move to Israel, and then to Latvia, is a temporary matter, this is not emigration, but just a vacation.
On the other hand, even if this is so, it is unlikely that the love of ordinary citizens for the Prima Donna is strengthened due to such a long vacation – they say, we can’t escape to Gelendzhik for a week, and she sunbathes in overseas resorts for six months!
It is unlikely that Philip dreamed of sitting on his ex, but, on the other hand, not to give up the first place now?

Against this background, the brilliant results of Philip Kirkorov look quite understandable: the leader of the survey is not currently sitting on foreign beaches, but is actively touring the country – in particular, Philip Bedrosovich recently performed in the Crimea and found time to visit the wounded in the hospital during special operations in Ukraine of Russian soldiers. Naturally, all this had a positive effect on the image of the pop king and strengthened his position in the list of “influencers”.
