…She has never performed live before, and she is nervous:
I’ve been so busy in the book tour that it’s been hard to focus. But […] We have a plan. I’m nervous, but I think I can do it. I think I’m going to be ok. It’s about preparing vocally, physically, all the ‘allys.’”

On how she deals with her haters:
“It all depends how you wake up in the morning. I’ll say, ‘today is a good day and I’m not going to let anything affect that.’….I have to understand that these people are obviously not happy in their lives. So I think maybe they’re the problem….I focus on God and on the people who are supportive. It’s a mistake we all make: We get 10 great comments and we only focus on the one nasty one. And I won’t give them that pleasure.”

On recording ‘Amor Eterno’ for her mother Jenni:
“It’s an homage to my mother, and I dedicate it to her with all my heart. I always loved that song, and obviously, after December 9, I saw it in a different way. Where the original lyrics mention Acapulco, I mention December 9. She never recorded the track, but she did sing it.”
