“I don’t use drugs, don’t say these things.” Damiano David, lead singer of Maneskin, after his triumph in Eurovision 2021 peremptorily replies to questions in the press room. On the final evening, in the Rotterdam arena, the singer was filmed with his head bowed on a table. On Twitter, in particular, messages have overlapped that have approached the artist to drug use. “Please don’t say such a thing. I don’t use drugs, no cocaine. Thomas had broken a glass,” he says, referring to the ‘damage’ done by the guitarist when a cameraman framed the group.
