Eurovision’s Måns Zelmerlöw appears naked on stage, speaks out against anti-gay laws

By Fabio Crispim

Eurovision fever has hit and things got a little more exciting when Mans Zelmerlow, one of the hosts for this years competition, decided to get naked during Eurovision’s second semi-final. Appearing on stage, Zelmerlow has nothing but a toy wolf covering him.

But Mans also impressed fans when he dealt some shade on anti-gay laws around the world.

“Lots of songs are about love tonight, that was Denmark with ‘Soldiers of Love’ and before that we heard Bulgaria with ‘If Love Was a Crime’ and you know what, love is still a crime in many parts of the world and I long to see the day when that is no longer the case.”

Naturally, Mans’ fans took to Twitter posting gifs and messages of love for the host.

That’s one to remember.
