1. I always thought Frida really loved Benny but he was not as much in love 2. Frida is goodlooking and Agnetha not. But Agnetha knows how to make herself look attractive and Frida not. This comment was from a kid , 12 . Pretty insightful for that young age and spot on, IMO. 3. This person saw the Super Trouper - video for the first time in the 90´s and said Frida looks like she has been drinking.He then continued there is a puffiness in her face that suggests it. Years later I came to think. The video was made in the autumn of 1980 and Frida knew Benny had found another woman at the time. Perhaps she really had turned to the bottle to cope with the situation. I actually think the same puffiness is in her face in some indoors scenes in the When all is said and done clip from August 1981. And her face is OK again in 1982.
Do you have more remarks from non-fans you think are interesting ?
I'm sure this might be a stretch, but an online user on Twitter or Instagram (yikes, I keep up with both social media and they seem to blur to the point of no distinction) once remarked of a photo op between Björn Ulvaeus and Zara Larsson that Zara looks like his daughter. Insensitive much? But it's nonetheless interesting because of the comparison
1. The only people who could possibly know are Benny and Frida themselves. None of our business either way. Not sure I'd like the uninformed public speculating wildly on the quality of my marriage based on random photos or video clips...
2. Entirely subjective. I think they're both beautiful women with wildly different styles.
3. Given the timing of the video shoot and the tumult in their personal lives, it's entirely possible that any puffiness could simply be down to crying? And even if she had hit the sauce, who could blame her? She got her act together soon after, though, with a screw-you haircut and a survivor spirit divorce album. Pretty triumphant, when you think of it, given her struggles with depression over the years.
