Pitbull, whose real name is Armando Christian Pérez, graces the cover of Latina’s “Hot Guys Issue.” Inside, he gushes about being a father, relationships, and being a proud Latino.
Here is an excerpt from the interview:
On His Relationship Status: “I always tell people that I’m single, bilingual and ready to mingle!”
On Being A Father: “My kids are all characters. It’s crazy to watch a young mind and what a sponge it is. Sometimes my son will be like, ‘Are we going in the Benz or the Beamer?’ And I’m like, ‘Hey, it’s the white care or the silver car, OK? And what do you have to do to get something like this? Work hard. Because I’m not going to give it to you.’ I tell them that my job is to be out here and their job is to go to school.
On Representing Cuban Americans: “I’m not here to exploit our culture – I’m here to empower it, and I want to build a brand like Jennifer Lopez.”
Who knew Pitbull was a father of four? It definitely adds dimension to the rapper, in my opinion. And to aspire to be Jennifer Lopez is a huge dream to accomplish. I think he has the potential and the fan-following to succeed.
What do you think? Could Pitbull build a brand as strong as J.Lo?
