Their appearance was eagerly awaited: hand in hand, model heidi klum (45) and musician tom kaulitz (29) came to the presentation of the "about you" awards – but the two remained ironically silent on the question of all questions on thursday in grunwald near munich.
The "germany’s next topmodel" presenter and the guitarist of the band tokio hotel announced their engagement in december. The wedding date and the exact location of the ceremony have always remained a secret. On thursday, too, the two of them – she in a full-body tiger look, he in a black baggy look – left the journalists on the red carpet to their side. Also present: toms twin brother and tokio-hotel-frontman bill.
The "about you" awards honor social media personalities of the year in various categories. Klum received a special award. The influencers who won the award encouraged them to "put positivity" into the world. "There is so much hate. You haters out there: stop hating!"Even in her short speech of thanks, she didn’t make a wedding vow. Klum lives in los angeles, her birthplace is bergisch gladbach in north rhine-westphalia – both places are being traded heib as possible wedding venues.
The piquant thing about the "about you" awards: on an initial version of the guest list that went out to journalists before the awards, kaulitz had been announced as klum’s "husband. Allegedly an error that has been corrected, as "bild.De" quoted the organizers.
Klum and kaulitz had met at the birthday party of designer michael michalsky, with whom both are friends, as kaulitz had revealed in early february on markus lanz’s zdf show. "Actually we were not set up. I gave directly gas. I thought she was great right away," he said at the time.
Since the two are a couple, there is always speculation about offspring. A piece far the moderator had also fueled the rumors with meaningful appearances themselves. Klum has four children from previous relationships.
Among the honorees on thursday was swedish climate activist greta thunberg (16). She was awarded the honorary prize for empowerment in her absence because her work motivates many supporters. Supermodel doutzen kroes praised greta’s "incredible work" and said that she makes the world a stronger place every day.
In march she had personally received the special award for climate protection of the golden camera in berlin. Since last summer, thunberg has been demonstrating on fridays, especially in front of the swedish parliament, and has thus started a global climate movement: "fridays for future".
