On Gran City Pop:
“The inspiration? My main cities: Mexico City, Miami, and Madrid, Spain. This is my second album recorded at my own studio inside my house. The recording process was really relaxing; we have an ocean view with twenty palm trees, sailing boats passing through. It’s really relaxing and really organic. I really enjoyed it.”
On Writing Vs. Performing:
“When you’re composing, it’s like worship. You’re transmitting your feelings. When you’re live, when you’re in a concert at a stadium, it’s rock ‘n’ roll. It’s totally different when you’re putting your feelings on paper.”
“My inspirations are the Beatles, Freddy Mercury, Queen, The Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley, Agustin Lara. Most of my inspirations are from rock stars. I think I have a rock star inside me. My energy is very spontaneous.”
On Latin Love:
“I would love to perform in Australia. I’ve never been. Hopefully we’ll go with this album. I’m going to do 35 concerts in America... and then I’m going to Europe. They love my concerts everywhere. Because everybody has a Latina inside. It all depends on the hour... but everybody has a Latina inside!”
