00:03
What's your go to cheeky song?
00:05
I like Vasa Volver,
00:07
especially right now. So Josh actually sat down with her to
00:11
discuss her the Amante tour the other day.
00:14
So I, I know you're gonna appreciate that interview.
00:17
Well, that's cool.
00:17
I just got FOMO right now,
00:19
but that's OK. Let's check it out.
00:22
What's up? Me too.
00:23
F miss your boy,
00:23
Josh, I've had a lot of artists but they have cheeky
00:26
here. It's looking good.
00:31
So, you know,
00:33
I gotta get my shades on.
00:35
I know that that's the only thing I forgot in my shades
00:37
The shades are going,
00:38
they're popping. So,
00:40
what's the amount this tour about?
00:41
Like, how are you feeling about this?
00:42
I feel very good.
00:44
I feel excited. I feel grateful.
00:46
I feel grateful. That's the word of the day.
00:47
You guys grateful the team is ready.
00:49
It is ready. You're shining,
00:51
you're bright. Thank you.
00:52
We did a prep for this because we got to get our
00:54
bling on. Right.
00:54
Yes, we got to get our bling on and more than
00:56
diamonds more than like materialistic things.
01:00
The a month is more of the inner light that we all
01:04
have this little light of mine.
01:06
I'm gonna let it shine and that's what it is and,
01:09
and that's why I wanted to call it diamonds.
01:11
That's why the new song is going to be diamond and that's
01:14
that's what it's and that's what we're gonna do.
01:16
You know, I want everyone to wear their diamonds if you
01:18
want to wear some bling,
01:19
bling, if you want to wear some sassy,
01:21
whatever it is that you want to wear as long as you
01:23
are shining and you're able to just embrace that inner light so
01:26
that it can come out and just,
01:28
you know, like you said,
01:28
shine bright like a diamond.
01:30
Don't be afraid to look good,
01:30
don't be afraid to look good.
01:32
What do you have in your guest room?
01:33
What do you have in the backstage?
01:34
Do you have any fun little foods like Oreos?
01:37
What is it? I need to know that.
01:38
Ok. Well, usually I like to have like veggies,
01:41
you know, with the ranch and stuff.
01:42
I love that. I love anything that's crunchy.
01:44
So I like the celery.
01:46
I like the carrots and that's like the healthy,
01:48
I'm trying to be cute stuff,
01:49
you know, and then you have the turkey with a little
01:52
bit of meat and the crackers.
01:53
You got to have that.
01:54
And then my guilty pleasure.
01:56
I'm really into flaming hot Fritos right now.
02:00
I'm telling you, I like anything that crunches and I need
02:02
my grapes because I like crunchy grapes.
02:04
Oh my God. I want them so bad.
02:06
They're sold out everywhere.
02:07
I don't know what the heck happened.
02:08
But anyway, I put them in the freezer.
02:10
I put a little bit of chain sometimes and I'm feeling a
02:13
little bit crazy spicy.
02:15
But yeah, Fritos is the thing right now.
02:17
So, yes. Or hot Cheetos and tequila.
02:22
You gotta have the classics because you got hydrate.
02:24
So we'll see you on stage with your mic.
02:25
Are you gonna have gloves on when you need these hot heels
02:26
or are you going to see the little red fingers?
02:28
You know what I'm really cute with like making sure that I
02:31
lick my fingers. I don't like the little,
02:32
you know, especially under my nails,
02:34
but, you know,
02:35
if you see them just know it's a hot free dose.
02:38
There's no like little dog that like,
02:40
hey, lick this.
02:42
It's me. That's my guy.
02:45
I know that would be fun.
02:47
Are we going to have any cool guest appearances on this tour
02:51
Are we going to have anybody?
02:51
Like, oh my God,
02:52
this print is going to pop up in the Mexico City,
02:54
Mexico City for sure.
02:56
I already invited a few people and now that the dates are
03:00
out and that everyone knows we're going to be in Aio.
03:04
I do have some guests already in line and in mind
03:07
and I think more and more hopefully will come than when the
03:10
album comes out, but for sure,
03:12
I want that show to be like,
03:15
yes, my championship,
03:17
you know. So,
03:18
yeah, we're going to have a lot of surprises.
03:20
How do you prep for a tour like this?
03:21
I'm on a detox.
03:22
I'm on a cleanse and I've been on it since January 1st
03:27
and it was 90 days of like,
03:28
no alcohol, no red meat,
03:30
no coffee, like all my favorites,
03:33
all the stuff that if right,
03:35
we still got Fritos and,
03:38
and so that's really been helping me just feel very energetic and
03:42
clear to the point where I'm like,
03:45
I kinda want to dream,
03:46
but I don't know.
03:46
Should I push it to 100 days and then should those?
03:49
I don't know. You know,
03:49
because I'm feeling really good and spiritually,
03:51
I feel really good.
03:52
I don't want anything to disrupt that.
03:53
But I did that intentionally as like a sacrifice to be like
03:57
universe God. Thank you.
03:58
And I want this tour to be successful and I'm working out
04:02
I'm singing on the treadmill,
04:03
walking on like a freaking 15 incline and I'm freaking singing.
04:07
I'm like, I'm running,
04:09
I'm running out of breath and I'm like,
04:10
dude, I can only do 30 minutes,
04:11
but hey, 30 minutes is better than nothing.
04:13
So I'm like, I want to be like,
04:14
on my, a game.
04:15
So I'm, I'm definitely preparing,
04:17
I'm going in the studio that helps a lot because,
04:20
because that exercises my vocal cords and,
04:23
and just that, that's what I'm doing.
04:24
I'm just kind of like in,
04:25
I'm in anything Diamantes I'm in right now.
04:28
I'm locked in, locked in.
04:31
Are you excited? I mean,
04:32
obviously you're not these hawks,
04:33
you can't eat too crazy,
04:34
but you're going to some crazy cities.
04:37
Are there any things you're looking forward to?
04:38
Oh, well, every time I go to Mexico I love
04:41
to eat, you know.
04:42
So, it's just like I've got to try to and the
04:45
whole thing. But you know what,
04:46
I'm going to Chicago and I haven't been to Chicago in a
04:49
long time and I definitely want to go there and just like
04:53
the pizza dude. I'm like the deep dish.
04:57
I'm looking forward to it.
04:58
There's a specific restaurant.
04:59
I can't remember the name of it,
05:00
but someone took me there a while ago and I'm just like
05:02
I'm craving it.
05:03
So s MS that's how much I want some,
05:05
I want my teeth to sink into the dough and then get
05:09
stuck and I want it so bad to help me in my
05:12
makeup. I got sauce everywhere.
05:16
What's the weirdest thing you've on tour?
05:18
You're like, oh,
05:18
no, I don't even know if this is weird.
05:20
But I mean, because I know it's in Mexico,
05:23
it's like super normal,
05:25
but I really liked it.
05:26
The chapulines just sitting on the side.
05:29
So, yeah, honestly,
05:30
before I was like,
05:31
I don't know about all this,
05:32
but then I tried them and I really like it.
05:36
I was just like,
05:37
it was like a little cute little app.
05:39
So I think, I don't know if that's the weirdest thing
05:41
I've eaten. But that's like the latest thing that I tried
05:43
and I really liked it.
05:44
Gains in there. How do you feel about this tour?
05:48
I know you're excited.
05:49
You're ready to go.
05:50
Is there any fears that you have?
05:52
I don't have any fears.
05:53
You know what? I,
05:55
I tell myself every morning,
05:57
I'm like, I'm going to trade fear for faith,
05:59
you know, and of course,
06:01
I would want every show to be sold out and that's what
06:03
I'm going to declare,
06:04
you know, and I'm going to work towards that.
06:06
Obviously, I'm just like,
06:07
oh, it's, you know,
06:07
I have to do my part but nothing,
06:11
I'm not really scared.
06:12
Honestly, I, I feel,
06:15
I feel ready. I feel like if this is happening,
06:17
it's because it's meant to happen and I've been waiting for it
06:20
for so long and I'm going to do my part.
06:22
I'm going to make sure that I make everyone proud and the
06:24
people, especially the people that go and take the time and
06:28
invest in my show.
06:30
I'm going to make sure that I give them the best.
06:33
That's why it's important for me to rest.
06:34
It's important for me to prepare because I want to give them
06:37
the best Janae the best chicky.
06:38
You know, what do you want to hear your boss be
06:40
What do you want to tell anybody that's,
06:42
you're not tuning in right now.
06:43
My boss bees more than anything I want to say.
06:45
Thank you. I'm grateful for you.
06:47
Each and every single one of you for those that have been
06:50
with me since day one who believed in me when other people
06:52
didn't believe in me and sometimes when I didn't believe in myself
06:55
I thank you with all of my heart.
06:57
I love you. I don't say that lightly and people that
07:00
are just, I even get messages to be honest where people
07:03
are like, I didn't like you before now.
07:04
I like you and I like that.
07:05
And I'm like, ok,
07:06
