Here is a scan from a Finnish tabloid, discussing Finland’s “It Couple”, Tuomas Holopainen and Johanna Kurkela.

To give a brief translation of the article; it simply states that after four years of togetherness, Johanna has moved into Tuomas’ house as of the end of last year. Although the couple never publicly addresses their relationship, it has been an “open secret” for a long time.

The article also goes on to mention that they have both collaborated together musically; each of them guesting on each other’s projects. Most people may know about Tuomas’ contributions to Johanna’s album in 2009, but many may not have known that she actually recites part of the poem in the Imaginaerum track “Song of Myself”.

Some other quick mentions in the article: Johanna stated that the reason why it took her so long to set up house with Tuomas was because of their constant touring schedules, and kept her own apartment while Tuomas is out on the road. But now that both of them have some “free time” in-between tours (in May for Nightwish; in June for Johanna), now seemed as good a time as any.

Thanks to Michèle for the scan and for the Finnish translation.

"How can you “just be yourself”
when you don’t know who you are?
Stop saying “I know how you feel”
How could anyone know how another feels?"

"Who am I to judge a priest, beggar,
whore, politician, wrongdoer?
I am, you are, all of them already."

"…I am the voice of Never-Never-Land,
The innocence, the dreams of every man,
I am the empty crib of Peter-Pan,
A silent kite against the blue, blue sky,
Every chimney, every moonlit sight
I am the story that will read you real,
Every memory that you hold dear …"
