Brooke Borg is a regular Eurovision Song Contest contestant who represented Malta in 2018. In fact, she recently spoke out about Destiny’s entry in the Eurovision and why it may have made sense for the Eurovision team to have chosen foreign dancers to accompany them. Scroll down to listen to the full podcast. 

‘It’s definitely ironic to say so since, I too, was a Eurovision contestant. However, I believe that the public focuses too much on the Eurovision and not enough on the artist’s future after the contest. It’s almost as if our lives depend on the Eurovision. Eurovision is not the sole opportunity for singers and musicians – we need to broaden our horizons and focus less on the song and the package and more on the artist’s future’.

Switching on to her own musical career, Brooke’s main aim has always been to be true to herself.

‘There was a long time where I stood quiet because I really do not like drama. However, I’m all for female empowerment. I like to stand up for myself and for other people. I believe that there is a big difference between constructive criticism, which I like, and people attacking others, which I hate’.

As an artist, Brooke explains that one of the biggest challenges is to be authentic to yourself and keep evolving and staying in touch with the times.

‘I don’t want to release music for the sake of it. I always strive to find the perfect balance between who I am and what is current and what’s on the radio at the time. I’m a big fan of Swedish producers as I think they are the ones who set the tone in the music industry’.

Brooke lived in London for six years, and despite being exposed to a foreign country, she strongly believes that Malta is surrounded by talented individuals, and that with a little push, there are many artists who can achieve great things.

A revelatory moment in Brooke’s career and personal life was in April 2020 when she described her birthday wish to be to finally feel comfortable in her own skin.

‘This has always been a struggle of mine for as long as I can remember. I’m a very sensitive person, even if I don’t seem like it. I always had this strong first layer that I put out there for the public to see. When I uploaded this post, I stripped off that layer and cried my eyes out. I felt vulnerable’.

However, Brooke feels that people can relate more to vulnerability rather than that strong outer surface. In fact, she admits that she never tweaks her photos as she does not want to upload a picture of herself, on social media, that is deceiving.

As a final note, Trudy Kerr asked Brooke the ultimate question, ‘What would you like your legacy to be?’ Brooke replied with an incredibly humble answer.

‘I want people to be true to themselves and to be happy in their own skin. I don’t think I’m even there yet. I believe that the first place you have to start off from is your reflection in the mirror. Once you achieve that, all your starts will align. That’s the real goal’.

What a wonderful way to end our podcast! Thank you for chatting with us Brooke, and we hope that your legacy will ring true to a lot of people!
