Tokio Hotel's Bill Kaulitz: 'It's A Miracle I'm Still Alive'

Tokio Hotel's Bill Kaulitz: 'It's A Miracle I'm Still Alive'

Tokio Hotel frontman Bill Kaulitz was involved in a car accident last week, totaling his Audi Q7 on the Germany’s Autobahn, he tells Bild.

The 20-year-old rocker, who crashed the day before the MTV Europe Music Awards and still rocked out at the show, spoke about what happened and how he’s feeling now.

On what happened: “I was sitting alone in the car and was on my way to Berlin. I am basically a very careful driver, never had an accident and never go too fast. Suddenly a car pulled in front of me without signaling. While I tried to swerve, I lost control.”

Bill hit the guardrail trying to stop his car.

On how he’s doing: “I think about the accident every day. I think it will be a while before I can get over it. It goes deep. I thought I wouldn’t make it out alive. I’ve never been this close to death!”

“It’s a miracle that I’m still alive. In moments like that we notice what is really important and to cherish one’s life anew.”

Glad he’s okay!

    Poor guy. His professionalism is astounding too, he showed up at the EMAs with no indication that he’d gone through something like that. I’m glad he came out of the incident unharmed.

  • Iron

    I was shocked whe I heard this, wish you all the best baby <3

  • cece

    hard to imagine him driving a car with that hair…

  • Ariel

    God would never let his angel die. This is horrible. Be careful Bill, we love you so much.

  • Ira

    He’s such a pro. No-one would’ve guessed something this traumatic happened to him just the day before, judging by that flawless performance.

    Respect.

  • billlyboy

    @Ira:

    Agree, who could have guessed something tragic happened to him. They could make a big deal out of this, before EMAs and get lots of attention, but they didn’t say anything. So glad he is fine .

  • eiri

    Oh god, poor Bill .

  • pouty

    I don’t like Tokio Hotel’s music but I’m happy he’s doing well! Glad that he was driving slowly else it coulda been worse!

    I couldn’t live if he was not there anymore, seriously. Even thinking about this makes my eyes all teary. Never go away Bill!

  • tsc

    It’s sickening when men try to look like women, unless, of course, you’re a flaming homo like Adam Lambert please spare us. He-she looks like Kim Kardashian.

  • Oh….how…..lovely…

    Could he be any more dramatic about a stupid car accident? He was obviously not hurt. He sounds like such a pu**y boy. Puhleeeeze.

  • Sarah

    Omg, what is up with this dude and amy, #15, that is scary, get some help, dear.

  • ann

    I’m so glad everything is fine with him. I better don’t see respect from haters, than having him dead Like Michael Jackson and becoming a legend then.

  • dundies

    I’m glad to hear he’s okay and that he doesn’t drive fast either

  • Oh….how…..lovely…

    This is rediculous!

  • ann

    @Oh….how…..lovely…:

    I can guarantee that I know one person who always misspell word ridiculous, and it’s TH fan. I wonder if it’s you N.

  • yoyo

    Yes, its an unfortunate miracle.

  • Isabel

    I dont know what would I’ve one if smth had occured to him! I’m sooo glad nothing bad happened… I hope he can forget this bad experience soon ♥

  • Jessie

    I’m so glad nothing happened to Bill.
    I’d be devasted if something had happened.
    He’s the nicest guy with the best personality.
    And he is so talented and he’s the most beautiful man on earth.
    I adore him!

  • katie

    Glad he’s ok, I can’t believe he was in a car accident and then put on such a great show at the EMA’s the next day!

  • fan

    Well, he is little dramatic. But it’s Bill, he is little diva. But him being little dramatic does not make the accident he’ve been in not serious. I had an accident on highway on 60m/h speed, was freaking lucky that did not have a scratch after, but I was shaken up enormously. So I can understand what he is talking about. So haters, please, go away to you pathetic little life and let Bill be. Obviously somebody is watching over him. We love you Bill, be safe…

  • julie

    Maybe if he removed his hair from his eyes or washed his face, he’d see more.

  • Oh….how…..lovely…

    I may have made a mistake in my spelling but please re-read your own sentence and see if you can find your mistake. And after you are finished you can inform me what the f*ck you are meaning? Who are you anyway? Get a life.

  • Susanne

    Oh my god, what a shock!!! But thankfully his guardian angel was with him! And after then he gives thousands of interviews, perfomed and take the prize for best group. “What a BRAVESTAR”!!!

  • Oh….how…..lovely…

    Oh, and this is another fine example of fine writing skills too. You are certainly the scholar aren’t you?

  • Susanne

    @Ira
    Right! He´s family, friends and Manager David Jost tryed to explain him , to cancel the perfomence. But Bill say´s, he want to do perform.
    Hope, this accident have no negative effects for Bill in his future!?!

    Hey you haters who say you want him to die.You have absoulutly no regards for a humans life.I love Tokio Hotel and i was in shock when i heard this happen and was thinking if he was driving his brothers car he would have been injured seriously or killed.Tokio Hotel would have been over.Its very stupid of you ppl to call him a girl also.Just get over your selves.

  • Emmy

    I’m so glad he’s alright. He showed up at the EMAs even after such a horrible incident, god bless him.

  • Claudia

    So glad Bill wasn’t hurt. Feel better soon!

  • pup

    =O!
    Thank God he’s okay.
    Feel better soon Bill.

  • Susanne

    I remember the past time of Michael Jackson´s life! Everybody talk´s or tough sh*t about him. And after his death everybody recognized, what a unique, genius person he was! Why human recognized that, when he lost it!

  • Gina

    I can’t imagine wrecking on the interstate. Must have been terrifying. I watched the EMAs on MTV2 last night and you would never know from the performance that anything had happened.

  • Gina

    Oh, and wtf is up with all of you homophobes?! Good god, get a life.

  • Black Angelxxx!!!

    this angel will not leave us!i’m sure.be careful my baby!Ilove you really much!many people say that BILL is a girl.he isn’t it is just a fu***** lie because this guy is 100% a man.this awesome band isn’t homo!This is a fu***** lie too!
    TOKIO HOTELx x x 4 EVER!

  • Xander

    @tsc:

    Bill’s a guy. Look again: He’s kind of lacking Kim’s boobs and butt, don’t you think?

  • Xander

    Remember folks, when you think this is overdramatic, this is the Autobahn we’re talking about. No speed limits.

  • Emily

    Wow! SO glad he is okay. Guys, how would you feel if you are at the peak of your career, and you almost DIE in a CAR CRASH on the f***ing HIGHWAY. Alright, people die from car crashes on the high way A LOT because people are driving REALLY fast. His professionalism is amazing, because he rocked the EMAs despite his near death experience, hopefully he is alright :) Feel better bbe!

  • Quill

    Thank God he’s okay! He’s quite the trooper! Tokio Hotel did an amazing performance at the EMA’s the day right after this. I would have never guessed. I Can’t thank God enough that him and the rest of the band are safe and well!

  • dacia

    Im so happy he is ok! Its amazing that after all that he still performed a spectacular performance at the EMA’s.

  • Schkloby

    @Ariel:

    that was so sweet! poor billy x.x

  • Vnlasteamer

    We are so thankful he was not hurt. His life is far too precious to waste like that.

  • hm

    I always thought he is a girl. Sorry, but he is wearing more make up than a drag queen.

  • InYourShadow

    There is a big possebility that I would take my own life if Bill died. It’s didiculous how much I care about him. I have only met him a few times, and my world is all about Bill Kaulitz! It’s wierd. Thank god my angel is ok. You can’t die Bill, you just can’t.

  • ann

    I’m glad he’s okay.
