The latest issue of De Showbuzz magazine (published in association with Weekend and Party) features an interview with Marga Scheide.


The former Luv' singer discusses the loss of her partner Michiel Gunning, who passed away on June 22nd. "Michiel was born on Christmas day, so it was always special. I need to go away because it'll be hard for me if I stay home. I'm going on a cruise to the Canary Islands and Madeira with my sister. It's going to be an emotional Christmas as my cousin died last year around the same time, " Marga says.


When asked if she is going to watch the Videoland series based on Patty Brard's life, she answers: " I haven't subscribed to Videoland, so I don't know how I'll watch the series. I'm busy with other things. I don't watch television often".


When asked if she hopes for a new partner in 2024, Marga explains: "I haven't thought about it yet. I don't want to anticipate certain things. I live day by day. Steb by step".
