Zitat des Tages von Pitbull:
I'm in the major league now.
I don't agree when the USA, that lives by a constitution, says, OK, just because you look this way, we're going to ask you for your documentation, or you gotta go back to your country.
Look, Pitbull is a product.
I already had three strikes against me. One, I have light skin. Two, I'm from Miami, which wasn't getting looked at at the time. Three, I'm Cuban. But now, I've made everything that stacked against me into a virtue.
My owner is life and that's what I fight for.
As Americans, which I suffer from myself, we have ADD.
I'm here to entertain.
I'm taking a lot of freestyle music and flipping it.
I feel like I've been fighting in music and creating new ways and new opportunities to make things work even when people thought it wouldn't.
I won't perform in Cuba until there's no more Castro and there's a free Cuba. To me, Cuba's the biggest prison in the world, and I would be very hypocritical were I to perform there.
I'm no longer an artist, I'm a business partner.
I'm definitely someone who enjoys life and wakes up with a ball of energy.
My kids can't eat awards.
With all the negativity going on in the world right now, people need an escape. When you give them a hit record or a great record, it allows them to escape for at least three to four minutes. They're not thinking bills or economy or immigration or war when you create that kind of ambiance.
I like to keep my money at the end of the day.
I look at this game from a different perspective.
I think of fans like a barbershop. I want that debate.
Every time I reach a new audience, that means I'm doing something right.
I make music with no boundaries.
One night I'll be in Los Angeles and it'll be a Latin crowd, and then another night I'll go to Fresno and it'll be an all-black crowd. To me, that's the beauty of the music.
Any time I see anything moving onstage, I'm cautious about it.
Music to me is something I did as a hobby.
You can't get much whiter than me.
I work hard. But I play hard, too.
I'm taking all the negatives in my life, and turning them into a positive.
The people in Cuba, they know what I stand for, and there's a lot of people in Cuba that stand for the same. But they can't say it.
In any country when you throw something in somebody's face, it's disrespectful.
Music is my hustle.
This industry is 90 percent business, 10 percent talent.
When I get in the studio the idea is just to work and bang out as many as I can.
I grew up around salsa, merengue, bachata, bass music, freestyle, hip-hop, techno, house, rave.
