A glass of sparkling wine to toast the new year? A beer for your birthday? Not for Was P. ! The pop star has consistently avoided alcohol for a long time. The 44-year-old now reveals the reasons for his abstinence to his colleague Thomas Anders (59) in his podcast 'Modern Talking - Simply Different'.
Alcohol is part of everyday life for many people, but for Oli P. high-proof drinks have been taboo for six years. 'I'm on the highway so much, I drive myself for all my jobs,' the singer explains his decision in an interview with Thomas Anders.
And it also got with the illness of his wife Pauline to do. 'I am responsible for my wife.' That's why he decided for himself: 'I always want to be in control of my senses and I thought about it, I won't do that anymore.' The background: Pauline was diagnosed with a brain tumor a few years ago. In March 2020 she underwent a successful operation. After that, a long road to recovery began for her.
The musician doesn't seem to be missing anything. But: In general, the couple would like to enjoy a glass of wine together again. Due to Pauline's illness, however, this is not simply possible, Oli P. reveals: 'It's also about my wife's health. Because of her medication, you can't do it like that either.' Finally, the TV star adds with a wink: 'Maybe someday the moment will come and we'll enjoy a case of wine.' (tma)
