50 coming up

In February I’ll turn 50! 💃🏻🥂💋🎉 I’ve almost never celebrated my birthdays (except as a kid). Now I’ve decided to change that ”boring behaviour” 😘I’ll go back to LA… this time with my husband ❤️ We will visit all places that became special to me when I lived there and we will spend time with Alison Reynolds 😍❤️ and Joel Berliner 😍❤️ Alison introduced me to her dear and very close friend Hugh Hefner. Hef was like a father to me. Bedroom nr 3 (Marston’s and Cooper’s room) was always available for me. Well, the rest is history… I ended up on the cover of Playboy and on all the biggest TV channels and shows. I even got the part as ”Ariana” on Baywatch. I got to know all the people who were part of Hef’s ”Playboy Family” and I met some of the biggest movie stars at the Mansion. I had so much fun during those years in LA!!! 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻

I feel blessed and thankful 🙌🙏🏻 .

This time we will stay at @sunsetmarquis and @graftononsunset We will also ”do Vegas” and visit Grand Canyon. Can’t wait… I wish I turned 50 tomorrow… 🌸🌸🌸

.

By the way, I will soon be done with my autobiography… Then you’ll get the whole LA story… 👍⭐️😃 My name was Linda Brava back then. I filmed my life almost daily with a digital video camera 1997-2005. I took many pictures and wrote down everything that happened in my diaries. I can and I will prove that Hef was one of the greatest gentlemen and most hospitable people on earth. I spent so many days and nights at the Mansion 1997, 1998 and 1999 that I would have noticed if any of Holly Madison’s accusations (re Hef’s behaviour) were true. I don’t believe her. At all.

Mitt liv i rampljuset

Saknar Pertti Pasanen! Han tog tag i mig 1995 och sade att jag måste börja tro på mig själv. Han ville att jag skulle starta en karriär inom TV & film, som jag skulle hålla på med parallellt med min karriär som klassisk violinist. Han påbörjade skolningen…Sedan är allt underbar historia 👍💕 Skriver om bl.a. detta i min kommande bok. . Då skall Tom Merilahti också få det erkännandet han är värd. Tom var den som år 1996 skrev pr-brev på finska och svenska och skickade breven till olika företag. Tom sålde in mig hos Björn Borg i Finland och Sverige. Mer om allt detta i boken… @bjornborg #björnborg #model #tommerilahti #tomcom #perttipasanen #spede #uunoturhapuro #spedenspelit #bingolotto #tv #finland #suomi @mtv3suomi

Linda Lampenius Brava on Eurotrash

Linda Lampenius Brava on Eurotrash

This was the way the super popular TV-show ”Eurotrash” (Jean-Paul Gaultier) introduced me to Europe in 1997… I was the spokesperson for Björn Borg and that was a character I did at the fashion shows. It was SO MUCH FUN!! I was a classical artist all the time. These fashion shows and photo shoots were something I did for less than 20 days of my life!! (I’m just laughing about the fact that they called me ”supermodel”😜) If you get stuck in a box and never dare to do anything funny and different, life will become boring. Eurotrash was a humorous TV show, like a comedy show. I come from a theatre family and all quirky stuff is normal. It doesn’t make me less of a classical violinist/artist. Have a great week! 😃🍁❤️

Heimo Haitto and Seppo Heikinheimo

This letter from Heimo and Eva Haitto means the world to me. Heimo Haitto is by far the most brilliant and talented Finnish violinist ever! He was called ”Finland’s Jascha Heifetz”. Heimo and Eva wrote this letter to me in 1997 when I had started playing some pop-music along my real career/passion (classical violinist) and some Finnish people couldn’t handle that. Heimo and Eva told me that they supported me and they thought it was great that I kept my pop-songs separate from my classical music. That way I could show both my ”trump cards”, classical violinist / pop artist (according to them)

I feel very honoured 🙏❤️ I also got grate feedback (re me as a classical violinist) from Finland’s toughest critic of classical concerts/artists, Seppo Heikinheimo. He invited me for lunch at Lehtovaara 3 months before he died and told me how good he tought I was. He adviced me to stay exactly the person I was and told me not to ever leave my classical career. In my book (will be released next year) I will tell the whole story…

And to you Finns who attacked and criticized me back in the days:

Performing for President Martti Ahtisaari in New York, 1997

”Linda Lampenius hullaannutti miljonäärit raikuviin aplodeihin”

”-Minulla on hyvin isänmaallinen ja herkkä olo” Linda hymyili esityksen jälkeen.

Presidentti Martti Ahtisaari ja Rouva Ahtisaari seurasivat tyytyväisinä suomalaisen viulusensaation menestystä.
