After a video went viral where she was accused of criticizing Shakira’s new song, Thalia, through a statement, denied that she had spoken ill of the singer of ‘Monotonia’, stating that they have been friends for a long time. Shakira defends herself against Thalia’s comments
Thalia took advantage of her appearance at the Latin Grammy press conference to speak directly on this controversy and clarify that despite all the speculation and misunderstandings, her friendship with Shakira remains intact.
“As you just said, you know me, I am here, in this career of how many years, how many decades, and you know the human being that I am, and you know the words that come out of my mouth throughout this career,” she began.
Afterwards, Tommy Mottola’s wife emphasized: “I would never use a word like that for a friend that I love as much as she does, I mean, Shak and I have a friendship for years, she is part of our family”.
Immediately after, the singer revealed the reaction that the interpreter of ‘Te felicito’ had to the whole scandal.
“When the issue started, I immediately whatsapped her: ‘Shak, what’s up, have you seen,’ [Shakira replied] ‘baby, I know who you are, so don’t even worry, forget about it,’” said Thalia.
In the same way, the Mexican singer-songwriter said: “And when you’re with friends, what they invent, what they say, is not yours, it doesn’t belong to you“.
Without forgetting the creators of the controversy, the actress also said: “I live, I definitely believe in the power of God, and I put the people or the person who put this note outside in your hands, to give them light, love, harmony, to get closer to him, to change their lives, instead of destroying, to build, I think the world right now is in full destruction, we must build.
And to end the topic, Thalia said: “How nice that I can clarify this here, especially because it could affect my friendship with her, forget my prestige, forget my name, I am interested in my friendship with my friend”.
