Aired as part of its evening culture show "I snova zdravstvuite/И снова здравствуйте" (And Hello Again), the Russian female reporter was a guest of the artist in Istanbul, as he drove her around to show her the sites of the city, and where the Russian crew filmed an interview with Tarkan by the Bosphorus and in a luxury hotel convention room.
In the video report, Tarkan talks about the loneliness of fame and his need for love, revealing he currently has a girlfriend, and that he would like to have children one day and backpack across the world.
The artist also mentions stripping for animal rights movement PETA, and denies rumours that he has undergone plastic surgery.
In addition, there are a couple of misnomers in the Russian report, most notably when it says the European version of Tarkan's video single to "Şımarık" (Ölürüm Sana/1997) was filmed in the streets of Istanbul - when it was really filmed in Marseilles, France in September 1998 - and that the word "Şıkıdım" (A-acayipsin, 1994) from his hit track meant a click of fingers during a dance, when it means the whole dance.
