Privately they've already been boy friends for several years, now they're going to perform the disco tune called Not a Sinner, nor a Saint side by side in the Swedish preselection Melodifestivalen 2003.
Last Sunday, Magnus Carlsson, who's said to be more handsome than ever after having been through a hair transplantation this autumn, was busy singing for the very last time for his popular group Barbados, well-known after several participations in the Swedish national final. He will be replaced by another gay artist who got his fame through the Operación Triunfo-clone Fame Academy. But his career is in no sense of the word over yet. Together with his lover Andreas Lundstedt, known from the internationally famous band Alcazar, he will form a super duo ready to perform the song Not a Sinner, nor a Saint in Melodifestivalen 2003.
They've been engaged for more than a year, and recently they even started living together. Although they would love to have a child together, they'll still have to wait for three or four more years, cause right now they're dedicating all their time and energy on a hopefully successful career: “I love to perform with Magnus by my side,” Andreas told the news paper Aftonbladet. Concerning Not a Sinner, nor a Saint, Andreas cautiously described: “It's a smashing hit, but I'm not sure how much I'm allowed to tell at the moment.”
The song is one of 17 entries (out of 32) participating in the upcoming semi finals of Melodifestivalen 2003, which all are being supported by the recently merged record company M&L, owned by Bert Karlsson himself, the king of Swedish music industry.
