Singer vents his anger on tabloid

Swiss singer – or singing hairdresser – Piero Esteriore has tried to avenge himself of an article in the tabloid Blick that wasn’t to his taste (apparently the journalist wrote that his recent celebrity birthday party was more akin to a mafia funeral.) On Thursday, he crashed a Mercedes through the front door of the Zurich offices of the paper’s publisher, Ringier, before climbing out of the car and throwing signed copies of CDs on the ground, allegedly yelling that he would castrate the offensive reporter. After being arrested, he was released on Friday with no charges being pressed. Ringier said it was better to forget the whole sad business, although it believes that this kind of personal vendetta is way out of line. Esteriore is best known in Switzerland for being the finalist of the talent show MusicStar and a (badly) failed attempt to please punters at the 2004 Eurovision contest in Istanbul (Switzerland – null point) with what was considered to be a truly awful song.

So was he really that bad? You judge for yourself…
