Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli

Happiness is just a hairflip away.
Chris Crocker


"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".
Tom Ford


Falko - "With you"

Lestat : Who is Falko de Bolster ?
Falko : I'm 23 years old. I was born on March 16 in Ghent, Belgium. I've been living for three years in the capital city of Spain. I'm currently working out there as a course counselor at a language school. I also study the piano and electronic music production.
Lestat : What’s your background in music actually ?
Falko : I've been adopted by a vocal coach when I was about 11 years old. Back then I started training my voice, working in the recording studio and writing my own songs. I got familiar with the Belgian music industry when I became the youngest finalist of Idool in 2011 (Flemish version of Idols). After that, I started writing songs for others and moved to Madrid to learn how to become an electronic music producer.
Lestat : Morphosis readers discovered you as a model (here), so what's a working day like ?
Falko : Since I was a kid people around me had been encouraging me to model. But I never really felt interested in getting commmitted to the modeling industry, as it's known to put a lot of social pressure on individuals. I started modeling recently and I really like the experience. A working day is basically : talking with the photographer, understanding his vision, getting to make up and styling, shooting some hours, editing the photos and choosing the best pictures for Photoshop.
Lestat : How were your latest shoot as a model and performance as a singer ?
Falko : Every shoot and performance is a unique experience for which I'm very grateful.
Lestat : Please present your new single "With you".
Falko : This is an electro-pop song with tropical influences that I wrote and produced together with Inntune Records. It is available on iTunes, Spotify, Deezer...
Lestat : What about the video ?
Falko : The story behind the song and the video is about a painful breakup I've been through, about having so many feelings for someone but also knowing it's not okay. The music video deals with the story of a couple. It'll be released on Sunday !
Lestat : And you're a finalist of Mister Gay Belgium 2018... on Saturday night, right ?
Falko : Yes ! I participate in this contest to defend those who feel discriminated because of how they look, think or like. I guess it's important to stand up against discrimination and accept each other as we are. For me it's an amazing way to connect with young gay people struggling with their identities and getting to know them.
Lestat : So what are your next projects ?
Falko : Well the idea now is to promote "With you". Then I'll release my first album "Undercover" together with a kick off concert in Ostend. After that I think about collaborating with other artists and make a few songs for this summer. With Mister Gay Belgium, we have a lot of shoots and events so I focus on this experience more than modeling. In the summer I'm sure I'll be working with many photographers and brands, unless I win the contest, then my agenda will be even busier !
Lestat : Is love important to you ?
Falko : Love is like water, it's crucial to life.
Lestat : What do you wear to bed ?
Falko : Nothing. I prefer to sleep naked.
Lestat : Do you spend much time on the Internet ?
Falko : Unfortunatly I do. Having friends and followers from different countries makes it difficult to keep contact without using the Internet. I'd like to be more among real people in the future.
Lestat : Answer the question you'd like to be asked.
Falko : If you had one wish, what would it be ? The world without any war, without poverty... where everyone has equal rights and chances for happiness.
