This 2023 has been full of great things for you, you became a mom and returned to singing,
did you ever think that both things happened simultaneously?
Absolutely, 2023 has truly been a remarkable year for me. Becoming a mother has been an incredible blessing, a journey that I cherish every moment of. And yes, returning to singing during this beautiful new chapter in my life was something I never expected, but it felt so right. Life has a way of surprising us, and I’m embracing every aspect of it with open arms.
How do you create that balance between your motherhood and your professional life?
Creating a balance between motherhood and my professional life is a priority for me. It’s all about organization, support from my loved ones, and understanding that both roles are important parts of who I am. I make sure to allocate quality time for Lía while also dedicating time to my music and career. It’s not always easy, but it’s incredibly rewarding. I’m learning and growing every day, and I believe that being present in both my roles makes me a better mother and artist.
Since becoming a mom, how do you consider your life has changed?
Becoming a mom has brought about a profound transformation in my life. It’s like a whole new chapter has opened, filled with love, joy, and a sense of responsibility, unlike anything I’ve experienced before. My priorities have shifted, and I find myself constantly amazed by the strength and depth of the bond I share with my family. Every decision I make now is influenced by my well-being and the happiness of Lía. It’s a beautiful journey of growth and discovery, and I’m grateful for every moment.
For years, motherhood has been romanticized by making it seem simple when it is not always so, what is your perspective?
I appreciate the opportunity to share my perspective on this. Motherhood is a wonderful journey filled with love and joy, but it’s also a complex and challenging role. It’s not always as simple as it might appear on the surface. It involves sleepless nights, endless patience, and a constant learning curve. There are moments of uncertainty and moments of pure bliss. It’s a journey that tests your limits and teaches you so much about yourself. It’s okay to ask for help, to seek support, and to admit that it’s not always easy. This journey is unique for every mother.
You have a career of almost 20 years, and you have grown and evolved personally and professionally in the public eye, what has been the learning process that has brought you to where you are today?
My career has been a transformative journey marked by growth and evolution. Through experiences, challenges, and unwavering fan support, I’ve learned vital lessons about authenticity in an ever-changing
entertainment landscape. Perseverance and resilience are crucial, helping me navigate adversity and contribute to my artistic and personal development. Embracing change, pushing creative boundaries, and having a supportive team have been key. This journey is one of self-discovery, passion, and learning from each experience. It’s led me to where I am today.
After a long wait, RBD is back on stage, a moment longed for by millions of fans, what is it like to be back, did you ever imagine that after so many years, the euphoria would still be the same?
The connection between us and our fans is truly timeless. Being back with RBD on stage has been an incredibly emotional and heartwarming experience. The love and excitement from our fans have truly
touched our hearts. We always knew that RBD held a special place in the hearts of many, but to see the continued euphoria after all these years is beyond what we could have imagined.
It’s been almost 15 years since “Tour del Adiós”, you are a different woman and your life has changed since then, what did this comeback imply?
The comeback after nearly 15 years since “Tour del Adiós” has been a transformative journey marked by personal growth and change. Reuniting with RBD members reflects our individual evolution and a celebration of the past while embracing the present. This comeback is a chance to honor our journey, connect with fans, and create new memories together. It’s a special chapter that signifies growth and gratitude.
What is your favorite part of “Soy Rebelde Tour”?
My favorite part of the “Soy Rebelde Tour” has been sharing the stage with my friends, and my family and the incredible energy and connection we share with the audience. Feeling the love and excitement from our fans as we perform together is truly unforgettable. The opportunity to relive those timeless songs and see the impact they still have on people’s lives is incredibly rewarding. It’s a reminder of the power of music to bring people together and create lasting memories.
What do you like to transmit to the public?
Love. What I aim to transmit to the public through my music and performances is a sense of authenticity, emotion, and connection. I want my audience to feel the passion and dedication I put into my work, and to resonate with the stories and emotions expressed. Whether it’s through the lyrics, the melodies, or the energy on stage, I hope to evoke feelings and create a shared experience that lingers long after the performance ends. Ultimately, I want to connect with people on a deeper level and inspire them.
You have always been characterized by opting for a natural beauty look that highlights your features and personality, what is that beauty secret that you like to follow on a daily basis?
Thank you for your kind words! Embracing a natural beauty look is important to me. One of my daily beauty secrets is to prioritize skincare. I focus on cleansing, moisturizing, and using sunscreen to protect my skin. I also believe in enhancing my features rather than masking them. I often go for a subtle foundation, a touch of mascara, and a lip color that complements my overall look. However, the most essential beauty secret for me is to prioritize self-care. Getting enough rest, staying hydrated, and nourishing myself both physically and mentally play a significant role in maintaining balance.
At the same time, you have always been faithful to your own style, which has followed you for years and distinguishes you, beyond the clothes is a matter of authenticity, how would you
describe it yourself.
It’s about embracing who I am and expressing that through my choices. Over the years, I’ve learned what makes me feel confident and comfortable, and I’ve stayed true to that. I believe that by being true to my style, I’m able to connect with my fans and express a genuine sense of self.
Finally, we would like to know about your dreams, you are an actress, singer, and entrepreneur, do you consider that you still have a dream to fulfill?
I believe that dreams continue to evolve and grow as we do. There are always new horizons to explore. One of my ongoing dreams is to continue pushing myself creatively, taking on challenging roles that expand my acting abilities, and exploring new characters in the film. Moreover, I aspire to use my platform to make a positive impact on the world, inspiring others through my journey. I remind myself to live the minute, live the present, and live the moment because time passes and doesn’t return, and this moment is a precious and unrepeatable treasure.
