It’s a bit like psychotherapy, because I have to remember every detail of my childhood until now, ”she replied. “Remembering all the things that made me decide to be who I am, my career as an artist, my decision to leave Michigan to go to New York, all the things that happened to me when I was young and naive, my relationships with my family and friends, watching a lot of my friends die – sometimes I have writing sessions where I go to bed and just want to cry. You know what I mean ?

“The thing is, I realize that I forgot a lot of things, and relive, dig deep, try to remember the emotions that I have felt at times, the experiences that are both joyful and traumatic. … I realize that I have lived a crazy life, ”she said. noted.

“I would say my family. They are a big, big inspiration. My country, my Latin roots. I remember when I was 12, and all of these dreams started, ”said Maluma. “I wanted to be a singer, I wanted to sing all the things that I was going through, even though I was 12 years old. I just wanted to sing for my mom, dad and sister, and it was a beautiful thing that I don’t want to lose.

“I would say the same. I am very inspired by my children, my family, my life experiences, the love, the loss, the betrayal, ”replied Madonna. “The things that happen to us as humans – that’s what inspires me, I guess. The struggle.
