Show transcript
00:06
Hey guys, welcome back to Lincoln Bio.
00:08
I'm Jenny and we've got a really interesting show for you today
00:13
We're gonna talk about a baby that was born on an
00:16
Iro Mexico flight. We're gonna be talking about the how the
00:20
US is trying to get you to stop traveling to Colombia.
00:25
And we're gonna be talking about what the hell is going on
00:29
with the mcdonald's ice cream machine and then the old,
00:35
the New York subway shooting that took place last Thursday.
00:38
And what's going on with that?
00:40
We have dairy farm workers being exploited.
00:43
Nada Nuevo there, Grecia Lopez fills us in on Cali Ci's
00:47
new baby and the hot Cheeto ban and the guy trying to
00:52
get it banned joins us.
00:55
Wow. Ok, let's get into it.
01:01
Jenny sometimes Boeing planes do great things.
01:06
So a woman gave birth on a Eldo Mexico flight that was
01:10
traveling from Mexico City to Ciudad Juarez.
01:14
Wow. Dang. So this woman had birth giving birth to
01:20
her baby mid flight guys,
01:22
mid flight. It was on a Boeing 737 plane.
01:26
You know what they've been going through?
01:27
Oh yeah. Yeah,
01:28
I know what they've been going through for sure.
01:30
So it's, it's crazy even like the crew assisted the birth
01:34
A doctor just happened to be on board.
01:37
Like no, like she had God on her,
01:40
on her flight with her.
01:41
Definitely she had the Lord in there and check this after she
01:45
gave birth. Everybody applauded and clapped.
01:47
You know how we do when we,
01:48
when the plane lands somewhere,
01:51
the baby landed in the aisle and everybody was like,
01:54
what do you think the baby's name is gonna be?
01:56
I hope it's not bowling.
01:58
Iro Iro Mexico. Oh I love that.
02:04
That's and the crazy part is once a Mexico found out
02:07
that she had given birth,
02:09
yo, they went and blessed her with 90 flights to celebrate
02:12
the 90th anniversary, 90 free flights.
02:15
I'm gonna have my baby on a next time.
02:17
You got 90 more chances to have one more kid on them
02:19
plates. I like,
02:21
I also like how you pronounce birth birth?
02:24
Bu RT H No,
02:26
but you see birth birth burf.
02:29
Yeah. Any who next story?
02:32
The US Embassy in Colombia has issued a travel warning for what
02:37
they say is a continued threat of crime in Colombia.
02:41
But I mean we're saying anywhere is dangerous right now to go
02:45
I mean, even the US like it's dangerous anywhere like
02:48
it's crazy like I've been there like they said the same thing
02:52
when I went and you know,
02:53
you just know where not to go and who not to talk
02:56
to you. Yeah,
02:57
the security alert recommends us citizens to reconsider traveling to Colombia due
03:04
to crime and terrorism.
03:06
Colombia has become super popular for traveling and for weddings too,
03:11
for weddings and isn't viewed as that dangerous.
03:14
All the ladies getting BB OS,
03:16
that's just not stopping the BBL game.
03:19
Like there's some, I,
03:19
I think there's more drama to it up.
03:23
Well, right now Colombia is level three travel advisory.
03:28
the alert says that there have been several robberies at
03:31
gunpoint in Bogota and it warns us travelers about criminal organizations and
03:37
terrorist groups in January.
03:38
The embassy warned us citizens not to use dating apps in Colombia
03:41
after eight suspicious deaths in Medellin.
03:45
I mean, yeah,
03:46
that's getting catfish man.
03:49
Yeah, I mean,
03:51
a Brazilian doctor wrote this.
03:52
He wants them to go to Brazil for BBL.
03:56
You want the BBLD but just be aware everywhere you go,
04:02
it's not just Colombia.
04:03
Just take your repercussions.
04:06
Yeah, be smart.
04:08
Not a whole new country,
04:13
Jenny, even the feds are fed up with mcdonald's ice cream
04:17
drama. I've been fed up the Federal trade Commission and the
04:20
Department of Justice is applying pressure to make sure we get our
04:24
mcflurry. They want to be legal to use outside technology because
04:29
apparently a couple invented a device that reads the error codes and
04:33
can fix the ice cream machines.
04:35
But when the franchise owners started using them,
04:38
Mickey D's was like,
04:39
nah, what, why like no no ice cream.
04:42
Sorry guys. That makes no sense.
04:45
Yeah. So apparently it's illegal to fix machines except for the
04:48
manufacturers. So the couple that created,
04:51
you know, the solution now they're suing mcdonald's for 900 million
04:56
for copying this shit.
04:57
Oh, so mcdonald's ended up copying them mcdonald's.
05:01
So first they say,
05:02
oh, you can't use it and then we're gonna copy your
05:05
we're gonna copy it.
05:05
We're gonna make sure we control when they're fixed and when they're
05:08
not fixed, that's crazy.
05:11
And quick fact,
05:12
10% of mcdonald's ice cream machines are still broken at any given
05:15
time. So it's like Russian ruler out there.
05:18
Damn, it should be on the app,
05:19
it should say on the app like which one,
05:21
which if your local ice cream machine is working or which ones
05:24
work? So Brooklyn's district attorney is not pursuing charges against a
05:36
man who shot another man on the NYC subway this past Thursday
05:43
Do you know what happened to the video?
05:45
That was crazy, dude.
05:47
I Yeah, like it was,
05:49
it was insane. Like I was scared of it.
05:51
Yeah, he, he pulled in,
05:52
they got into it.
05:53
The other guy's girlfriend three times in the back.
05:58
Then you had stabbed him three,
06:00
poked him three times and then there was a tussle with a
06:04
gun. He goes to get the gun out the jacket and
06:06
everybody's on the other side of the train just like,
06:09
yeah, we're about to die like what the fuck is going
06:11
on? Where are the cops?
06:12
Yeah. And it's just crazy that this happened like days after
06:16
the New York's Governor deployed 1000 national Guard members and police officers
06:22
to protect subway. Right?
06:24
You, you the three shots.
06:25
I know I showed you the video.
06:26
Yeah, you don't see it.
06:27
But damn, that was crazy.
06:29
But they, they said that they don't have,
06:30
they have enough evidence to prove that it was like self defense
06:34
Damn. You brought a gun and a knife to a
06:37
fist fight and you get shot and stabbed by your own shit
06:41
That's kinda crazy.
06:42
Well, the girl had her own knife but yeah,
06:44
yeah, he took his gun away from him and shot him
06:47
with his own gun,
06:48
his own gun. Yeah.
06:49
Crazy story guys, apparently the 36 year old who got shot
06:52
is in the hospital right now.
06:54
I don't know his status but we'll see.
07:02
Hey, Gene, you want some milk.
07:03
You know what? Sure.
07:07
True. Yep. The fuck is that?
07:10
The dairy industry is hella dirty guys.
07:15
Immigrant farm workers are being treated super unfairly and to better understand
07:22
what's going on. We have Melissa Sanchez on the line from
07:25
Propublica. Hi, how are you doing?
07:28
Good, good. And yourself.
07:29
Welcome. Thank you for having me.
07:32
Thank you for coming on.
07:34
So we wanted to ask you,
07:35
how did you first uncover this story?
07:38
Sure. So sort of by chance I was connected with an
07:41
immigrant rights advocate in Michigan who told me about a fire in
07:45
the house for immigrant dairy workers in the western part of that
07:49
state and two men from Southern Mexico died in that fire.
07:53
And what, what really drew me to it and what drew
07:55
this advocate to it was the fact that because dairy workers work
07:59
year round and not,
08:00
not seasonally like migrant crop labor.
08:03
The state's OSHA didn't investigate what happened or if the employer
08:06
could have been responsible.
08:07
And that case sort of sucked me into this world of,
08:10
of dairy workers and all the cracks that they fall through in
08:14
state and federal protections.
08:16
Melissa, how many immigrants are working in the dairy business?
08:19
So it's, it's hard to say that number.
08:21
But the, a lot of industry groups have said that at
08:25
least half of the workers on dairy farms are immigrants.
08:27
What we've seen in Wisconsin is a lot more than that.
08:30
I'd say it's easily in the tens of thousands nationwide and they're
08:34
largely from Mexico, increasingly from Central America,
08:37
places like Nicaragua in Guatemala.
08:39
And we've heard of cases or met people from Ecuador or from
08:42
Eastern Europe and even from South Africa,
08:45
are they treated worse than farm workers?
08:47
And why is that?
08:48
I think it's all,
08:50
it's all case by case.
08:51
You know, we've talked to workers who feel like they're treated
08:54
well and they're respected by their bosses and others who are called
08:57
racial slurs on a daily basis and who they get hurt when
09:00
they get hurt and they get hurt very often,
09:02
they're just ignored and they're fired and they're evicted from,
09:05
from their homes. I think what makes dairy work different from
09:09
other kinds of farm work?
09:11
What we might normally think of,
09:12
like people in the fields is that a lot of these federal
09:15
and state protections just don't apply.
09:17
And so dairy farms,
09:19
dairy farm owners can operate with a lot less scrutiny.
09:22
So OSHA isn't often like in their business,
09:25
like standards that exist for,
09:26
for housing that employers often provide their workers doesn't get checked in
09:30
the same way that it does for other kinds of farm work
09:33
And like I said,
09:34
the people get injured all the time and workers' comp laws don't
09:38
always apply to small farms and a lot of dairy farms are
09:40
small and what this means is when workers get hurt,
09:43
they're just discarded and they can get fired and evicted and
09:47
no medical treatment. And of course,
09:49
the threat of deportation just hangs over everything.
09:51
Melissa, what can we do to not support these businesses exploiting
09:55
laborers? I wish I wish I had a good answer because
09:59
I think about this all the time when I'm at the grocery
10:01
store getting my $8 a gallon milk for my kids.
10:05
There's labels for, you know,
10:06
whole milk and there's labels for like free range eggs,
10:10
but the same thing doesn't exist for,
10:11
for, for the labor part of,
10:13
of dairy. So,
10:15
so not a whole lot unless you like know a farm and
10:18
you, and you talk to the workers,
10:20
which is unreasonable for most of us.
10:22
I will know that it doesn't have to be this way.
10:25
And in Vermont, there's advocacy,
10:27
there's a group called Migrant Justice that works with,
10:30
with dairy workers and with farmers and they try to get the
10:33
milk buyers to the table to increase the,
10:36
the price that they'll pay per gallon of milk and pass it
10:39
on to workers. And there's,
10:41
there's standards that come with that housing work conditions,
10:43
et cetera. But that's only in Vermont.
10:45
So big companies like Ben and Jerry's have signed on to that
10:48
But for the rest of us who aren't there,
10:50
there isn't a whole lot.
10:53
Well, thank you so much,
10:54
Melissa. We really appreciate,
10:55
you know, you sharing your insight and where can people
10:59
find you propublica.org/dairy? Perfect.
11:04
Thank you so much for coming on.
11:06
Thanks for having me.
11:07
Thank you. Have a good one.
11:08
Take care. I like the weekend.
11:17
It was tough. So I'm not gonna do too much talking
11:20
right now, but we got Grecia on the line break it
11:23
down in Miami. Listen,
11:29
it's been a crazy,
11:30
crazy time for Latin music this past week as you guys saw
11:33
I was over at South by Southwest representing Los Latinos Porque
11:37
Let me tell you guys,
11:38
we bis South by Southwest.
11:41
OK. You guys may have seen that video that I uploaded
11:44
on Instagram de los fans.
11:46
So Puma that basically took over downtown Austin.
11:48
OK? And I saw another tweet from another news outlet that
11:51
said they had never seen this many fans line up for a
11:54
South by Southwest event in a few years.
11:57
So if that doesn't speak volume to what,
11:59
you know, the regional Mexican music is doing.
12:02
I mean, hello.
12:03
Fun. Oh my God.
12:05
I'm getting fomo talking about FO O though.
12:08
You see Klis baby.
12:10
Oh my God. OK.
12:11
First of all, first of all,
12:13
it was interesting that how kiss had this secret up her sleeve
12:16
and we all know that she had Coachella last year.
12:19
So it was like she had been giving us Easter eggs here
12:22
and there that she was pregnant,
12:23
but of course she was hiding it with her outfits and she
12:26
was on tour. Remember y'all?
12:27
We went to her tour last year and now she just had
12:30
her baby. However,
12:31
the name, that's what we all want to know.
12:34
Some fans are speculating that she already released the name of her
12:37
baby. A little Easter egg within her album,
12:40
we still don't have it confirmed.
12:41
So we can't say here this is the name of her baby
12:44
but some fans and a lot of the fans may be
12:46
true may be real that her name is already out there in
12:49
the, in the album,
12:50
I know, I went to the concert and I was like
12:52
oh, it's cute when she was wearing like a little
12:54
doll dress, you know.
12:55
And then I was like,
12:56
I don't know, she seems like she has a little something
12:59
under there. I suspected it talking about more rumors though.
13:02
We got the Avengers,
13:04
not those Avengers, the Avengers and Faye not coming back,
13:07
dude. Ok. This one is huge over here because as
13:11
we know, fate has had a monumental year by himself.
13:14
You know, he was on tour last year.
13:15
He dropped his album Malte MAOs Curad in October and now
13:20
in September my bad.
13:21
But now we're like,
13:22
OK, hold on.
13:23
Is he coming back to the Avengers?
13:25
Because we do know that's how he did get a big part
13:27
of his start. As we,
13:28
he was a singer songwriter for Bob and for bunny,
13:32
a lot of ghostwriters for these big artists.
13:34
But now we're like,
13:35
wait, is he going to be a part of the Avengers
13:38
because he came up with them together and now he's going to
13:41
go back to them.
13:42
Maybe this is his way of thanking them and paying homage to
13:45
the artist that he came up with,
13:47
which is set that like the Avengers.
13:49
We don't know yet.
13:50
The day ones, you know.
13:51
Yes, the day ones I can't wait.
13:53
And honestly, that's beautiful because you al you always start in
13:56
a group, right?
13:57
You start in a group and you always want to be that
13:59
one that succeeds. Fate is the one that has had the
14:02
most success, of course,
14:03
set has his own hits and so does DX.
14:06
But it's a beautiful thing for him to be like,
14:07
you know what, let me not forget about my day ones
14:09
and let's get, let's get going and bring the fans and
14:11
give that nostalgic feel crazy.
14:14
How do you feel about gospel music?
14:17
I, I don't know,
14:18
I, I mean,
14:19
I don't really listen to gospel,
14:21
you know, just vibing,
14:22
right? It's a good vibe.
14:23
But did you see that Farco is gonna switch his genre up
14:26
to gospel music? I believe that because didn't,
14:28
he wasn't he talking about Peppas and how he regret,
14:30
like, regrets kind of like making it or whatever?
14:33
But like that's what I listen to on my workouts.
14:38
Can you imagine working out for a gospel?
14:41
So I got to interview Haruo at the Vibra Urbana Festival here
14:45
in Miami. And I asked him about that because he had
14:48
once said that he was finished with his Pepa song because he's
14:51
like, I don't believe in this anymore.
14:53
This is not the,
14:53
the mood that I'm going into.
14:55
However, a Vibra he performed it,
14:57
the crowd went crazy.
14:58
So I said, wait a minute,
14:59
wait a minute, you're kind of contradicting yourself.
15:01
My guy, let me ask you about this.
15:02
And he said at the end of the day,
15:03
the fans want what they want.
15:05
You know, I gave the fans what they want.
15:06
They're here to have a good time and it was just so
15:09
key timing because not two or three weeks after that,
15:12
his whole label, Carbon Fiber Music and his partner,
15:16
they now are transitioning their entire carbon fiber music into a gospel
15:21
music because they're saying God has called us to serve him so
15:25
we can anticipate a lot of gospel e Spanish music coming out
15:29
of FU and carbon fiber music group D Well,
15:32
if it's as lit as PPA and they're talking about Christ,
15:36
I am down, I am John Iglesias.
15:40
And what happened with Jimmy H and Nahana Cano.
15:43
What, what happened?
15:44
What's the, what's the tea?
15:45
Give us some tea?
15:47
OK. So of course we know that Jimmy Milde does not
15:50
hold his tongue back,
15:51
right? He says,
15:51
you know what this is what's happening.
15:53
So we saw a lot of commotion on social media where he
15:56
was like, Natanael Cano and Junior Ache are pulling out due
15:59
to quote unquote, not enough tickets being sold.
16:03
We don't know if that's true or not.
16:04
Jimmy Umid is saying that that's what the festival told him.
16:08
And then after that,
16:09
not a few days after that Forza Raida also pulled out.
16:12
So we were like,
16:13
wait a minute, there's something bigger what's going to happen.
16:16
We don't know, but I do want to think this is
16:19
just me being a detective over here.
16:22
I think Jimmy Ilde will probably throw his own small festival highlighting
16:27
Los Artistas de la Musica Mexicana because as much as we don't
16:32
want to say it,
16:32
sometimes our artists are put on specific festivals to sell tickets.
16:37
Right? When the lineup for Rolling Loud L A was announced
16:40
back in November, December.
16:42
I was excited. I made a whole reel about it.
16:43
I was like, oh my God,
16:44
hold on Junior Ache.
16:45
We have for Raida at Rolling Loud.
16:47
That's predominantly hip hop o Questa Sando.
16:50
That was a beautiful thing to see the,
16:52
the black and brown pride culture merge especially in Los Angeles and
16:58
for them to be pulled out.
17:00
It was, it was devastating.
17:03
I couldn't use my,
17:04
you should have brought the boas with Air Force one wearing boas
17:10
to a festival that ouch.
17:13
I know talking about ouch.
17:15
I'm still super hungover.
17:16
The Raza still partied this weekend.
17:18
So Grecia, where can we follow you?
17:20
Thank you so much for coming out.
17:21
Oh Yeah, for sure.
17:22
You guys can follow all my music journey at Grea is Lopez
17:25
on Instagram and on tiktok.
17:27
Actually something big is happening in Miami this week,
17:29
Miss Shakira is getting ready to drop her new album and there's
17:33
going to be a huge party here in Miami who's going to
17:36
attend. We don't know I will be there soon as the
17:38
jos who shows up.
17:40
But look out, girl,
17:44
let's go. Yo,
17:51
Jenny the 911 for Latinos is among us.
17:56
what's going on,
17:57
girl? A bill has been written trying to ban Hot Cheetos
18:01
from schools in California.
18:03
Oh, why? I don't know.
18:05
It might be the Cheeto dust like that shit might be,
18:08
you know, fucking skin up eyes.
18:11
I don't know. What do you think it is?
18:13
Could be. I mean,
18:14
I love Hot Cheetos but it could be the shit that's in
18:18
them like the red 40 for example,
18:21
I heard really bad things about red 40.
18:24
But have you tried washing Cheeto dust off your hands?
18:27
That shit takes like the evidence.
18:29
Is there five washes the evidence is there?
18:33
Listen, Jenny, I don't know why they're trying to ban
18:35
this shit, but I have assembly member Gabriel who proposed the
18:38
bill and he's here to explain it to us straight from the
18:41
source, from the source.
18:43
Hello, assembly member Gabriel.
18:46
Hey, how are you guys?
18:47
Good, good and yourself?
18:50
I'm doing well. Thank you for having me.
18:51
Thank you for coming on.
18:53
So why are you trying to ban Hot Cheetos from schools?
18:56
So let's just be clear to start off with.
18:58
We are not trying to ban Hot Cheetos in the state of
19:00
California. I love Hot Cheetos.
19:02
I love talkies. They are great.
19:04
What we are trying to do is make sure that the food
19:06
we serve our kids in schools is a little bit safer.
19:08
So we're trying to get these companies to make some very minor
19:11
modifications to their recipes really just to change the coloring that they're
19:15
using., so that the schools so that the food
19:17
that our kids eat in school can be safer if there's any
19:19
food that's banned.,
19:21
what would be the rules if kids bring them in as snacks
19:23
to school? Would,
19:24
would you guys regulate that?
19:25
Yeah, we're not gonna,
19:26
we're not gonna have the Cheetos police out there or anything else
19:29
like that. The idea here,
19:30
people obviously can pack what they want in their lunches.
19:32
The idea here is just that,
19:34
you know,
19:34
if you go into the lunch line,
19:35
right? Or the,
19:36
the products that kids are served and said dear is,
19:39
if you want the state of California,
19:40
we spend a lot of money on,
19:41
right? If you want these school districts to buy your products
19:44
then we think at a minimum you should get rid of
19:46
the toxic chemicals. These are,
19:48
these are toxic chemicals that are causing kids problems.
19:51
and particularly some of our kids that have challenges.
19:53
I'm someone who grew up who struggled with a DH D I
19:55
have three little kids.
19:56
One of my sons struggles with it and we know that these
19:59
food dyes in addition to causing things like cancer and harm
20:02
to the immune system.
20:03
They also can be really challenging for kids with a DH D
20:06
They can make their challenges even more complicated.
20:08
And so we want to make sure that the food that we're
20:10
serving to kids in schools is healthy and it's safe and it's
20:13
not gonna make their challenges even more significant.
20:16
And so the idea here is that we serve about 3 million
20:19
free lunches every day in the state of California,
20:22
we serve about 1.5 million free breakfast every day in the state
20:24
of California. So we just want to know that this food
20:27
that we're giving to our kids in schools is safe.
20:29
and that it's not going to be making things more
20:31
difficult for students. When will we find out if this bill
20:34
passes? We're just at the very beginning the process here.
20:38
so it's gonna take a couple of months for this
20:39
to, to work its way through the legislature.
20:41
We're hopeful,,
20:42
maybe in August or September,
20:44
we'll be able to send this bill to the governor's desk and
20:47
you know,
20:47
we're, but, but,
20:48
but we're feeling really good about this and we got nurses and
20:51
teachers and public health advocates and all the folks that care about
20:55
our young people, a lot of parents that came in,
20:57
to push for this.
20:58
And so we think we're on the right side of history here
21:00
So we're gonna keep pushing hard and,
21:02
and we, and we know,
21:04
we don't expect and there's another important thing I think
21:06
for folks that we don't expect any products to come off the
21:08
shelf. This is not a ban on any food.
21:11
This is not a ban on any product.
21:12
You're still going to be able to get flaming hot Cheetos in
21:15
the state of California.
21:15
You're still gonna be able to get talkies,
21:16
all the foods that all of us love and enjoy.
21:19
The idea here is just to be able to get them in
21:22
a slightly safer version,
21:23
right? For them to take out that one or one or
21:25
two chemicals that are causing the problem here and,
21:27
and particularly for young people.
21:28
Definitely, thank you so much for your time,
21:31
Gabriel. And what is your favorite snack?
21:33
By the way? I I I'm,
21:35
I'm a big potato chips guy.
21:38
but I do,
21:39
I do like spice.
21:40
I do like spicy foods.
21:42
so I will confess,
21:43
I do enjoy some hot Cheetos now and then they're pretty good
21:45
Yeah, every now and then,
21:47
right? But not all the time every now and then.
21:48
It's ok. Yeah.
21:50
And where can people find you?
21:51
They can find us on Insta at a Sm Jesse Gabriel.
21:55

22:17
You got to meet my crush,
22:19
young Miko. I didn't get to just meet her.
22:22
I got to talk to her,
22:23
hug her, take a couple of pictures for her.
22:27
You know how it is.
22:29
How did you even talk to her?
22:30
I don't, you don't talk Spanish like that.
22:32
First of all, let me,
22:34
let me get you right.
22:35
Let's get you in the face.
22:37
I've been knighted to the crema squad.
22:38
That's how I go swag.
22:41
What up? It's your boy Josh.
22:42
And yeah, I am with you.
22:43
A mi that's it.
22:45
I'm done. I don't have to do anything more.
22:47
How you been chilling?
22:50
Yeah, you look good.
22:50
Everything looks good. I like this little background that we got
22:52
back here. We're chilling right now.
22:54
Right? It's nice out.
22:55
It is by the beach.
22:56
It used to be colder.
22:58
It's better than us.
22:58
Way better. Talking about heat.
23:00
Let's do some fast fire.
23:01
Are you ready for that?
23:02
All right. Apple pies or mcflurrys?
23:05
Apple pie? Perfect.
23:06
Right. Hot ones.
23:07
Booth or table booth.
23:10
You need the, you need the I need this,
23:11
I need to be able to do this.
23:13
The crew. You have to have the crew,
23:14
right. Just the fries in your mcflurry.
23:16
Yes or no, no fries.
23:18
No, I never understood that.
23:19
People do that. They do that a lot.
23:21
I don't like it,
23:23
it tastes weird. Right?
23:24
Because it was like cold and hot.
23:26
Do you still bite them?
23:27
Like do you do like the bite and then the bite here
23:29
or no, you let it go down in.
23:32
Nothing crazy. All right.
23:34
And then for, let's get started,
23:35
you know, for the fans that really don't know you,
23:37
how'd you get the name Young Miko?
23:39
is based on one of my favorite anime shows.
23:41
Miko is a very common girl name in Japan and it kind
23:45
of represents like being a daughter of God.
23:46
I just kind of like,
23:47
felt related to it.
23:49
So I liked it.
23:49
Perfect, right? Anime mcdonald's.
23:52
So how did you feel when like they decided to like,
23:54
bring you in for the anime side of this?
23:55
I think it's so cool because I,
23:57
like, I recently learned this was a world that already existed
24:00
like online in the anime world and,
24:01
but then they brought it to life for this campaign.
24:03
So it's so cool that I get to be a part of
24:05
something that used to be animated and now it's real.
24:07
I think it's so dope,
24:08
so crazy. Right?
24:09
What, what was the anime that got you into anime?
24:11
It's like, it's not well,
24:13
I used to watch Dragon Ball Z when you used to
24:15
when it used to be on Cartoon Network and Yu Gi
24:17
oh Pokemon. I used to watch all the animes used
24:21
to have on Cartoon Network.
24:22
I don't think they have them on TV anymore.
24:23
I know it's so sad.
24:24
Like the, the drawings and everything,
24:26
the music So if you were in an what superpowers would you
24:29
have? Would you have superpowers or?
24:31
No, I think I wouldn't like,
24:34
I think one of my favorite characters doesn't have any superpowers.
24:37
She's just a, she's just a bad ass.
24:40
I don't know if I can say that she's just super cool
24:43
She trains in mixed martial arts and she can take
24:46
on people that have superpowers.
24:47
I think that you got some like Batman vibes here.
24:50
Right? Yeah. Yeah.
24:53
So tell us about your new single Corita and then how it
24:55
fits into like the mcdonal love anime vibes.
24:57
Everything. Well, I think Corrida has like an anime sound
25:00
to it. Everything I do is super anime inspired.
25:02
So the mixture of both of them,
25:05
I just think it just goes really well together.
25:07
I don't even think you have to explain it that much.
25:10
You just kind of feel it,
25:11
you know, I think the commercials look really dope with it
25:13
too. I'm just happy they got to collaborate and then
25:16
we're talking about L A being in L A but what's your
25:18
favorite city to perform in my favorite city to perform?
25:21
It definitely has to be Puerto Rico back home.
25:24
Yeah, I did have a show in Rega Mican that like
25:28
Shook me. No.
25:30
Ere is Sania and I definitely have to go back.
25:32
It's so cool right here and the fans like sing your music
25:34
you just kind of like I don't really gotta sing it
25:36
I just vibe it on stage.
25:38
Argentina is crazy too.
25:39
Puerto Rico. I gotta get out there,
25:40
Puerto Rico. You have gotta get out there the heat down
25:43
there. What's your song performing?
25:44
Why? I think my favorite song to performing is Lisa because
25:48
of the crazy energy it has.
25:50
Sometimes I, I won't even sing like I pull the mic
25:52
down because people will be singing it so loud that it's super
25:56
euphoric. How do you feel like you,
25:57
you see the fans right in their eyes and they're like singing
25:59
every single word. You can't convert it to anything else
26:03
I swear to God.
26:03
Like much Foria much much see that you really get to connect
26:09
with people and they're so locked in on you and you're like
26:11
I can't believe I'm locked in on them and it's like
26:13
very mutual. It's,
26:15
I, I don't think there's anything I enjoy more than being
26:18
on stage. I shouldn't be scared by singing your songs.
26:20
Like making crazy faces.
26:21
Like, no, the crazier,
26:23
the face the better,
26:24
you know. You Right.
26:25
Yeah. Yeah. And then I'll make like a stand face
26:27
to look at you like you,
26:28
you crazy. Yeah,
26:29
I love that. So how did you get into music?
26:32
Was it a group,
26:33
a specific song that you were like,
26:36
I kind of always wanted to be in music.
26:41
There's people in my family like my grandma,
26:42
she used to play the piano.
26:43
I had cousins. I used to play guitars and my brother
26:47
used to play the guitar and then it's like,
26:48
I don't know, I,
26:49
I kind of just got into it and then when I got
26:52
to my first year of college I started to really experiment with
26:56
it. I started to meet people from the industry and I
26:58
started to meet other up and coming artists and then soundcloud was
27:01
like, pretty popping,
27:02
you know, this era of underground music and I just kinda
27:06
scooped my way in there and I don't know,
27:08
the rest is perfect,
27:09
right? The child kitty came and you know,
27:11
crazy songs. Great era.
27:13
Yeah. What's like that g clad that you're looking for next
27:17
I do always kind of mention dout cat.
27:19
I just, I wanna manifest that.
27:21
I think, yeah,
27:22
I think we go crazy together.
27:24
I love her. If not,
27:25
we can still be friends if Miko wasn't doing music.
27:28
Where would you be at right now?
27:29
I think acting. Yeah,
27:31
I still, I still wanna do it but I definitely was
27:34
one of the two action comedy drama,
27:36
all of it. Everything.
27:38
Would you be a scary movie?
27:39
Yeah, that'd be crazy.
27:40
You got a horror stream in you.
27:42
I don't know if I do,
27:43
I'd have to explore that little M and Myers.
27:45
I, I think I wanna be the scary one though.
27:49
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
27:49
Like coming at them,
27:50
right. You probably the one that survives like,
27:53
oh, I cut up.
27:53
I do, I do wanna be the one that survives because
27:56
you're getting down on that.
27:57
You're not, you're not like 130 at the end of the
27:59
movie, I'm like,
28:00
yeah, I'm in and out.
28:01
Damn, I should have saved everybody.
28:04
And how can fans experience with down through your eyes?
28:06
Me growing up with anime is just like getting to experience it
28:09
through my eyes is just pretty nostalgic.
28:11
I don't know, like it's a crazy feeling,
28:13
getting to be able to collaborate and go into an anime world
28:17
I don't think I ever thought it would be something I
28:20
would do. So just that just like emotion and nostalgia
28:25
like excited to like kill out the two great vibes.
28:29
Great, easy vibe,
28:29
right? Rita? All the songs,
28:31
all the cool stuff.
28:32
It's coming out. Yo,
28:34
Miko, you guys' problem is Yo,
28:36
Miko and Crema by Me too.
28:38
Thank you for coming.
28:39
That's cool. Yo,
28:41
wasn't that sick? Yeah.
28:42
Should have been me there.
28:43
Not you, you don't know anything about animes.
28:46
Yeah. I mean,
28:47
she didn't know her name was from the anime.
28:49
Don't care, bro.
28:50
Did you know that her anime would be fighting people like that
28:52
Like Batman? All I know is that I know all
28:55
her songs and I can sing along with them at a concert
28:58
The new song Corita though.
28:59
It's gonna be lit song in the summer.
29:02
I haven't heard it yet but I will get to it.
29:04
I know you're gonna be rocking that,
29:05
that little bandage on your cheek.
29:08
That's what you think.
29:15
Well, that does it for the tired,
29:18
