Washington Capitals Star, Alexander Ovechkin is the star of Katya Lel’s new music video, “Let Them Talk.”
1. Alexander Ovechkin Is Very Good At Glaring Into A Camera
It’s unclear as to why Ovechkin needed to put on a helmet while shooting pucks at the end of the video, but one things for certain, his ability to glare into a camera would make Zoolander jealous.
2. Katya Lel And Ovechkin Have Been Friends For A Long Time
The two first met in 2008 after Russia’s World Championship victory and remained friends, catching up whenever the NHL player was back in Russia during the off season. Last September on her 39th birthday, Ovechkin told her he wanted to be the star of her next music video. His dreams came true this summer and the two teamed up to create the video for her newest single “Let Them Talk.”
3. There’s Definitely Some Sexual Chemistry
Katya told reporters, “Alex literally melted into my arm.” and “imagine how many women will be jealous after watching the clip. And how many will be willing to be in my place.”
Apparently it’s not just Katya who’s caught OV fever, he’s been breaking hearts all over Russian.
This summer Ovechkin was allegedly dumped by his fiance, tennis pro Maria Kirilenko, because of an instagram photo posted by his friend, Vitaly Fridzon. The photo shows Ovechkin enjoying a helicopter ride with Russian gymnast Karolina Sevastianova.
4. Don’t Ask Ovechkin Provocative Questions
In a video interview posted by Express Gazeta, Ovechkin answered questions about the video shoot, but was clearly uncomfortable when asked any questions about his personal life or his libido.

5. This Isn’t Even Ovechkin’s Weirdest Music Video
There are lots of people who are calling this music video featuring Alexander Ovechkin bizarre and even creepy. However, those people have probably never seen a Russian music video before. The awkwardness in this video Katya is pretty standard in terms of the kind of videos in heavy rotation on MTV Russia. It’s also less weird than his last music video, where he became a rapper.
