Greek singer, Julia Alexandratou, causes a scandal as the crisis-hit country embraces a welcome distraction to the state deficit, as she becomes the first Greek mainstream celebrity to perform in a porn video. She was seen as the definition of a good-time gold-digger in Athens' free-spending, credit-fuelled Noughties, but now has become better known for this very different kind of video, which sold over 240,000 copies in ten days. Greece. 15/03/2010. "It's a big scandal in Greece, it's the first time a Greek celebrity did something like this and it got out," Alexandratou told The Independent. Sex-aids and Easter candles in her curvaceous likeness are now on sale. Twitter and the blogosphere are agog, and the row has even prompted remarks in parliament. The 45-minute film features Alexandratou tottering into a whirlpool bath with a bottle of Dom Perignon, later used as a sex aid. She then pairs up with an as-yet unidentified man. Last week Alexandratou issued a statement requesting that the media "desist from reproducing science fiction scenarios around my stolen private moments". Just as her story was fading from the front pages, her manager said she will marry a businessman, whose identity won't be revealed until the wedding day.
