Show transcript
00:08
Girly pop. Are you dressed?
00:17
OK. So tell me a little bit about tonight's look.
00:20
So I definitely wanted to showcase a more sexy version of myself
00:27
like that very thumb fad but like,
00:29
you know, just sexy.
00:30
I always gravitate towards the black.
00:32
Anyway, so let's talk a little bit about music.
00:35
Are there any artists that you have either a crush or that
00:38
inspire you in some way?
00:40
So for sure Selena was always like OG Selena.
00:47
It was really inspiring to watch her.
00:50
I got to go to her last show.
00:52
You did. Yes,
00:53
I did. So I was like e experience giving out my
00:57
age but yeah, four years old going to her last concert
01:00
What was the most memorable moment about experiencing that?
01:04
I think just watching her like,
01:07
I mean, I was very little.
01:08
So we were up in the boonies and kind of watching.
01:11
I remember my dad had the little thing binoculars,
01:15
you could go and see someone.
01:16
I remember it rotating,
01:17
but it was really nice to just see a very confident woman
01:20
She was very beautiful and had so much presence and as
01:24
a child when you see someone like that,
01:26
you're just like I want to be like that or I want
01:28
to be like that person,
01:29
you just admire them,
01:30
right? So for her,
01:31
it's always been like the biggest thing for me,
01:35
you know. So yeah,
01:36
do you feel like you're entering a new persona whenever you go
01:38
on stage in your outfit?
01:40
I mean, 1000% you know that the whole thing,
01:42
say what you wear will bring some confidence out of you and
01:46
stuff like that. So you know,
01:47
people are like some people are like,
01:48
oh clothes doesn't matter.
01:49
But I'm like it does.
01:51
If you dress a certain way,
01:52
it brings out another side of you.
01:54
It's like playing like acting or something like that.
01:58
You know what I mean?
01:58
So it's really cool because when I wear outfits,
02:01
I channel this different persona no matter what,
02:04
it makes me feel like you really are channeling something if you
02:07
could raid anyone's closet who would,
02:12
let's say Rosalia. Oh my gosh.
02:14
Yes, she's got some good fit.
02:16
Yeah, I like,
02:17
you know, I follow her on social media and stuff and
02:19
I was just like some of the outfits like those pieces are
02:22
some cool dope ass pieces but I was just like,
02:24
oh that would be cool to braid her closet like I need
02:26
that the designer designer.
02:29
Ok, let me join you on this bed.
02:31
Speaking of info, do you find that any of your
02:34
relationships inspire the lyrics,
02:36
you write the music,
02:37
you make relationships with yourself and as well as like with other
02:41
people, inspiration is just floating everywhere.
02:43
So I try to,
02:44
like, just always on my phone,
02:46
like, have my notes and stuff and I'd be like,
02:48
oh, this would be a dope topic,
02:50
you know, and stuff like that.
02:51
And yeah, I inspiration is everywhere when it comes to being
02:54
a musician. What is,
02:55
what's the scariest thing about being a musician in today's day and
02:58
age maybe? Thinking like,
03:00
oh, did I make a mistake taking this path?
03:02
Like you miss out,
03:04
you sacrifice a lot,
03:05
you know what I mean?
03:06
So you, you never want to get to a position like
03:08
man, I invested all my life in this and,
03:11
you know, it didn't turn out the way that I wanted
03:12
to, you know,
03:13
I think for me and I know it's kind of crazy,
03:15
but like there is like a very clear vision of what I
03:20
how I envision my life and how I see it.
03:22
And I think I'm more concerned about like when I get there
03:26
to the point that everything's just great,
03:27
like, will I actually be happy with that success?
03:30
Will it be satisfying or will I be like,
03:33
not happy? You know,
03:34
it's really strange, but I think that's one of my biggest
03:36
fears. That's just a personal thing.
03:38
Like when you have it all,
03:39
is it all, you know,
03:41
I mean, and that's totally fair because you're,
03:44
I think part of finding happiness going through that journey and learning
03:47
about yourself and yeah,
03:49
success can mean a lot of different things to many different people
03:53
So what does success mean to you?
03:54
I think you've reached success when you're doing something that you love
03:58
You know what I mean?
03:58
That the whole process is a successful process,
04:02
you think? Oh,
04:02
just because I obtained something I'm already successful.
04:05
No, I think it's just the fact that you get to
04:07
enjoy your life and do what you love the most.
04:11
You already reached that success to me.
04:13
I think that's what success means.
04:21
Let's go. I don't know.
04:22
Let's test it out.
04:23
That's our dogs, dog,

04:50

04:53
A girls night or date night,
04:55
girls night, Instagram or tiktok,
04:57
Instagram. Painful truth or comforting line,
04:59
painful truth. The last one,
05:01
Colombian or Mexican, those Colombians.
08:10
And can you describe your music and how you found your sound
08:20
if I had to put a name to it?
08:22
I always call it Spanish pop.
08:24
Genuinely. I do music that is to me popular and I
08:29
just put it in Spanish.
08:30
If you, it's whatever it is,
08:33
I'm just gonna bring some of my flavor into it and make
08:35
it me like whether that be funk,
08:38
whether that be Cumbia,
08:39
whether that be like it doesn't matter.
08:41
R and B in Spanish,
08:42
like as Mexicans, we listen to everything for the younger generation
08:45
that's watching and listening to your music.
08:47
What's the message that you want to give them?
08:48
What's advice? What's the like,
08:50
hey, this is,
08:51
this is what you need to be doing.
08:52
This is like the most important thing.
08:54
My advice is always gonna be be you.
08:56
It doesn't matter if you're like,
08:57
hello Mexican mota like fucking like,
09:00
you know, it doesn't matter.
09:02
You know, El Devi is like the Rancho lo que like
09:04
be that because guess what?
09:06
That is a part of your life that no one else could
09:08
take from you. But also don't be ashamed to learn something
09:12
new and grow into the new view.
09:13
And like, I feel like I've done that per se myself
09:16
because I used to be very quiet,
09:18
closed off, scared,
09:20
but like as my confidence just grew through the roof because I
09:23
allowed myself to do that.
09:24
And also I had great family and I feel like one of
09:27
the main things is,
09:28
is find what matters to you and put that in the forefront
09:31
and never let nobody like,
09:33
you know, change your perspective on what's important to you.
09:35
For me, I'm just like my message is like,
09:38
you know, do what you love.
09:40
You know what I mean?
09:41
Because you were raised and,
09:43
and conditioned to think,
09:44
oh, I have to do this because this is the way
09:46
it should be because this is how America society is,
09:49
right? So I feel like now,
09:51
you know, you're in a moment where it's just like you
09:54
don't have to be in survive,
09:56
you can break out of that,
09:57
you know, do what you love.
09:59
So how does traveling play into the lyrics?
10:02
You write? What's your creative process when you're on the road
10:05
you know, you're going from hotel to hotel.
10:07
How, how do you find time to sit down and,
10:09
and write your music?
10:11
My inspiration, honestly,
10:12
just, it runs throughout my body at any time of the
10:15
day. So if I can make the time,
10:17
I'm gonna write a whole song or sometimes like,
10:19
I don't really have the time,
10:20
but I'm just writing a song on my notes while I'm on
10:22
my way somewhere, you know,
10:23
and then I'll make be later,
10:24
you know, but I think my lyrics are always gonna be
10:26
inspired by either what I'm living or what people around me are
10:29
living. And that's like one of my big things is I
10:31
wanna be able to represent everybody around me as well as,
10:34
as much as I have my own ideas and opinions about life
10:37
Like I also wanna tell stories about the people around me
10:39
because I feel like that's a part of my story and it's
10:41
a part of like what I get to witness and I'm grateful
10:44
for that. And like that makes me write a lot of
10:46
songs about family and like those songs be the best ones.
10:48
That's beautiful. Are we ready to go?
10:50
Ladies? Let's do it that far.
10:53
I can. Is it?
11:01
No? Ok. Po I want to get to know you
11:09
a little bit more.
11:09
So I've got some questions for you.
11:10
You ready? Let's do it.
11:12

11:50
And last question, Mexicanas,
11:52
Boricuas, Chihuahua. Who knows who *** you have been so
12:17
tall. So the Tim men the same play by the same
12:41
Send me the baby.
13:38
He loves the. And again I see you over there.
14:41
Period. Representing France.
14:43
Let's go. Yeah,
14:46
like I said, you know my girl,
14:48
Julieta Venegas got on the remix that P Mexico Cron.
14:52
Let's go. Yeah.
14:56
Cy my love. We're here a you too.
15:12
Are you excited for the show?
15:14
We don't come here empty handed.
15:15
So I brought you some things to make you feel a little
15:17
bit more grounded. The girl on the bed.
15:24
I heard you're a spiritual.
15:44
If you get a hit girl,
15:45
I got chocolate, whatever you need.
15:47
When you're bouncing from hotel to hotel.
15:49
Do you bring something with you that keeps you grounded?
15:53
That makes you feel like you're back home?
15:54
Is there an item or something that you hold close to?
15:57
That reminds you of being home because I know like sleeping in
15:59
different beds in different locations can be a little overwhelming.
16:02
What's something that grounds you to remind you?
16:05
I have this little card.
16:07
It's similar to this,
16:08
but it has a core and on the back of it,
16:10
my grandma she wrote and it's in my wallet.
16:17
So I carry that with me all the time.
16:19
So speaking of culture,
16:21
you know, I find a lot of Latino cultures,
16:23
we're very heavy on the spirituality.
16:25
Do you find that that's led you to where you are now
16:28
Do you use?
16:29
Are you a manifesting girly?
16:31
Like what's your spirituality like?
16:32
And does that play into your music every day?
16:36
Like I, I talk a lot of positive into my soul
16:39
even when things are going,
16:41
not the way that I wanted to.
16:42
I always say, hey,
16:43
I'm so happy and grateful.
16:44
Now I manifest it all.
16:46
Like when I'm working on a business opportunity,
16:49
I already say that I have it.
16:50
Even if I feel sad,
16:52
I'm, I, I say that I'm happy like,
16:54
you know, we all go through those emotions and we have
16:56
to let it out,
16:56
right? But we have to fight that.
16:58
So it's all about the mind.
17:00
So I definitely say that a stro having a strong mind to
17:03
be able to function in this business is very for it because
17:05
people are always watching you,
17:07
they're always, they're always wanting for you to make a mistake
17:09
So if you just like let go of all that and
17:11
say I'm this, I'm that easily not fall asleep.
17:14
Done. What's your favorite thing about being a Latina?
17:20
Like what is the one thing that you would never give up
17:22
for the world that comes with being a Latina?
17:24
I would say alpha,
17:26
like my mother is a force to be reckoned with.
17:28
And I wouldn't want any other example in any way,
17:31
like she's strong, she walks into a room,
17:34
she lights it up,
17:35
you know, she taught me to be kind to others.
17:37
She also taught me remember where you came from,
17:39
you know, like humble yourself,
17:41
understand that no matter where you are,
17:42
we're all the same.
17:43
We come in a lot of shapes and forms really dynamic and
17:46
like, you know,
17:47
we can have like our sensitive size but like,
17:49
like you said, we're also extremely powerful,
17:51
but we're also able to turn off our work life when we
17:53
step in that house and become extremely loving and caring and cook
17:57
up a whole meal.
17:58
Like if we're not even tired and didn't just work three jobs
18:01
like that is genuinely,
18:02
I forgot to mention that that was fun.
18:03
Like no, but we have our ups and downs.
18:08
But guess what? You would never tell.
18:09
No. Where do you find your confidence?
18:12
It really comes from within and it comes from values of your
18:16
family. Like it starts in Pesa la casa.
18:19
My dad was an artist,
18:20
he was a producer,
18:21
he was a writer.
18:22
He was everything. So for me,
18:24
music was everything to him.
18:26
So it became everything to me.
18:28
And my mom is a showgirl,
18:30
you know, personality.
18:31
So it's like that's how they fell in love,
18:33
you know, I'm like,
18:33
ok and it's crazy because it really does,
18:36
it, it stems from values of the home,
18:38
it stems from what your parents believe in.
18:40
So they show you right?
18:42
Because a lot of the times I always say,
18:44
you know, to be confident,
18:46
it's you gotta search for that,
18:47
you know, and you gotta want that just like everything in
18:49
life, you gotta want it.
18:50
Nobody's gonna want it for you.
18:52
So and you gotta work hard for it,
18:54
right? But it's your life,
18:55
right? And everything is just everybody's in it.
18:57
It is your life,
18:58
it's your world So confidence comes from family,
19:01
comes from love and loving yourself too.
19:08
We're amazing. We're incredible.
19:09
We are fierce. We are valuable.
19:11
We are worth it.
19:12
Amen. Amen. Ok.
19:23
Are you ready? Ok.
