She revealed that she had requested her May delighted the nationwide tour continues despite warnings from its tour organizer of the possibility of impending closures (by what she calls “divine intervention”, the tour ended just before Delta’s current epidemic plunged back into the sky. many Australian cities in long closures).
“I refuse, as a woman, to be told what to do. I know not everyone is going to get it, but I absolutely refuse to buy into the propaganda, and I turned around and thought, “I believe in this show, and I believe we just have to get on with our lives. “” she revealed.

Melbourne-based Arena also appeared to urge supporters to vote against Victorian Prime Minister Dan Andrews in the upcoming state election, encouraging them to “take the time to think about who they want to lead this state.”
“When it comes time to vote for who we choose to work for us, maybe next time we’ll pay a little more attention to who we want to be behind the wheel.

I really hope that in the next election people will take the time to think about who they want to lead this state, ”she said.

A passionate Arena praised her extraordinary interview at Studio 10 Friday, in which she slammed double standards between sporting and musical events and said Australian artists should be ‘done’ lending their talents to charitable causes given the little support they received during the pandemic .
“In the event of a problem, the artistic community has always rolled up its sleeves. We went there and did what we had to do. We’re very happy to play this role to help people – that’s what we do, ”she told interviewer Angela Bishop.
“Now we have problems, can anyone help us?” No. It’s amazing how people fly away and disappear, yet they ask us very quickly to work for free, to forgo any form of remuneration on record sales.
“You know what? DONE. We’re done, and now we say it. Just stop this ridiculous and absurd behavior. It has to stop.
