It's hard to be a role model
Marie Serneholt is 17. But she is not a common teenager. She's in the A-Teens and is working hard to stay on the scene. And now she's going to be on tour with Britney Spears.
Two years ago she was a normal teenager. Today she's 1/4 of A-Teens, but she's still a very uncommon common 17-years old girl.
Marie was dancing at Lasse Kuhlers danceschool in Stockholm. That's where she spent all her spare time. That's where she had her friends, that's where the possibilities to become famous was, but above all - that's where she could do what she loved the most in the world: to be on stage.
Now it's been almost two years, with hundreds of thousands of sold records world wide and having millions of fans.
Marie is more than satisfied. This is what she has always been dreaming of.
- It does not feel like a job. I do what I love to do!
During the spring the group has been on a huge promotion tour in South America, and in a few days they are leaving to USA to open for Britney Spears, and in this autumn the second album will be released.
- I don't drink alcohol. When I'm going to a party I am having a good time and dancing, but I don't do all the other stuff. You can have just as much fun anyway!
The record company don't have to worry. Marie is not the girl who will bring any scandals.
- My youth was very easy. Maybe because I choosed the homework and dance instead of going out at nights partying. I have always been very focused on what I want to do.
In Stockhom she lives a pretty normal life. She goes to the movies, sit down at a café with her friends, and even travel with the subway without beeing attacked of curious fans.
This far she's been exempted from rumours in the daily press. The rumous that are, usually stays within their well visited website.
- It's many people that thinks that me and Dhani is a couple.
- Then there was a rumour that all four of us was homosexual, totally untrue. But I don't care. They can write what they want, after all, I know what's true or not.
Marie doens't think much about the future.
- In ten years? Oh my god, I'm almost 27 then. I hope I will still be in showbusiness then.
- When I'm 30 or something, I probably want a family and kids and things like that, she says and laughs for a while.
