So, it's like a metaphor
The Eurovision song contest has officially bellowed towards the voting period, and very soon, we will know how the UK has done.
Amongst the usual antics of the occasion, Serbia raised eyebrows on social media after they seemed to sing about Meghan Markle.
Serbian entry Konstrakta sang In Corpore Sano, which incorporates both Serbian and Latin, sings: “What could be the secret of Meghan Markle's healthy hair?”

“What could it be? I think it's all about deep hydration," the singer, whose real name is Ana Đurić, added.
According to the Express, the singer explained: “Meghan Markle isn’t that important here, but she’s representative of all those people in the media that we’re focused on.”
“She hasn’t contacted me yet, but I’d like for her to hear it" she added. “This is a song about the atmosphere in which we’re living, which has put health as the highest value.”

Further explaining the overall meaning of the track, she said: “This is a song about health and the atmosphere in which we’re living, which has put health as the highest value.
“We needed a compulsive aspect during the song, which we decided would be the washing of hands.
“I think that the staging can make an impact, especially when you dive into the lyrics.”
