Why women fall in love with musicians…

… Or even a step further: Why do they faint at concerts? Or just behave the way they behave (screaming – fainting – dancing)?

A journalist in the Netherlands wrote a book about her story of falling in love with a musician and wanted to explore that further: it is a general phenomenon, why does this happen, what is then the appeal of the musician? And so, I got asked to contribute a little bit to an article about these themes. Read the full article here (in Dutch + you need to sign up for Blendle).

My contribution can also be seen in this picture:

(Basically I argue that they indeed commit to certain practices, the screaming too – yet that is more as a relief and because they’re happy they can finally see their idols again. And state that it’s no different than men screaming / chanting during a soccer match)
