Pitbull Talks About Collaborations, Partying with Marc Anthony, and Being a Dad on Most Requested Live with Romeo

Pitbull called into iHeartRadio’s Most Requested Live with Romeo this weekend to answer fans’ questions. Listen to the full interview above and check out some of the highlights below!

  • “Since you’re the King of Collabos, who do you have your eye on right now to work with next?”: “It’s funny that they say, ‘the King of Collabos,’ because I just feel like everybody’s doing collabs on records, and everybody kinda like given me that– I would say that label. But I’m just always looking forward to work with anybody to be honest with you. I love new artists, new sounds, and I never have a problem with thinking outside the box– or even opening up Pandora’s Box. So, I’m looking forward to work with anybody that’s willing to work.”
  • “Out of all your celeb friends, who’s the most fun to party with? I heard you got some pretty epic yacht parties.”: “Who’s the most fun to party with? Oh man, umm… I’ll tell you– you know who’s a lot of fun, and we always enjoy when we take the boats out in the bay– I would say is Marc Anthony. Marc Anthony, he knows how to have a good time. And he also likes to be low-key and under-the-radar. I tell you– for me to have a great time– I just love it when people come out and it’s not about the pictures, it’s not about the videos, it’s not about posting. It’s just about enjoying each other. So, people around me, we have a rule: they got to put away their phones and there’s no social-media, and believe it or not, they have the time of their lives.”
  • “How has being a dad changed the way you’re making music?”: “It really hasn’t changed anything to be honest with you. I feel that those are two different things and two different responsibilities. As far as being a dad- it’s amazing, there’s nothing like it. I have six kids, so I have a lot of experience in the dad category. And as far as making music– it never leaks over to my kids as far as them asking, ‘Why would you say this or why would you say that?’ because pretty much what you hear, is what you get.”
    “Have you stepped on a Lego yet, having six kids?”: “Man, I’ve stepped on a lot things to be honest with you.”
  • “How did you land on your famous slogan, ‘Single, Bilingual, and Ready to Mingle’?”: “How did we land on that famous slogan? We’ve been using that since I was like in sixth-grade. So, it worked out later on in life a whole lot. And it’s the truth! So, to all the women out there: I’m single, bilingual and always ready to mingle.”

New Audio: Pitbull Talks Turn-On’s, Turn-Offs, and new Music with Enrique Iglesias

In a recent interview Pitbull did at Rodeo Houston, he revealed his biggest turn-on’s and turn-offs, how he relaxes and, ‘escapes,’ his upcoming single with Enrique Iglesias, and more!

Interview Highlights:

  • On Performing: “For one, I’m up there doing what I love. So its like, I really don’t feel like I’m running out of energy.
  • On Women: “To me, the most attractive quality is when there’s a certain mystique to a woman. I was raised by women, I was raised by a single mother that gave me that intuition that women have.”
  • On his Biggest Turn-Offs: “If a woman doesn’t keep up with herself, it shows you they might not keep up with other things.”
  • On the Bahamas: “If you catch me in the Bahamas, when there’s nobody around, I’ll be out there in a pair of underwear jumping in the water. You’ll catch me getting loose out there. What I love about places like that; its like the Twilight Zone.”
  • On his Upcoming Enrique Iglesias Collaboration: “We have a new song with Enrique, we’re looking at probably an early April release. It’s called, “Messing Around”. I gotta say thank you to Enrique Iglesias as always. He always shows so much love. More than anything, Enrique isn’t only a great business-partner, a great-person to learn from, but he’s also a stand-up human being.”

Pitbull in People en Español’s “Los 50 Más Influyentes” Edition – Full interview + Scans.

Mr. Worldwide has been named the most influential Latino of 2015 by People en Español. He is featured on the cover of the magazine’s Los 50 Más Influyentes edition, out now.

In case the magazine isn’t available where you are, or you are unable to purchase it, Pitbull Updates has the full interview in Spanish and English, plus scans of Pit’s section in the issue!

Read the interview in English below!

Pitbull greets me with a firm handshake and opens the door to the ladies, at least he did during the photo shoot in Miami. And an exclusive interview? It was granted in the backseat of a luxury car as his driver took him to a meeting to finalize the details of the series, Life, based on his musical tour that Spike TV is airing.

In fact, his new CD, Dale (from the label Mr. 305 Inc.), was created in airplanes, yachts, hotels and islands across the globe. Thanks to him not sitting still, his music stands today on radio and in countless clubs, his mischievous smile adorns billboards and he has his own vodka, clothing line, perfume and restaurants – which has let him become an unstoppable global force and People en Español’s most influential figure of the year.

How did he get the name Pitbull? “A friend of mine gave me the name because I have forever been fighting very hard with words, in life, in my career… biting, no barking,” he says with laughter. The Cuban American, Armando Christian Perez, 34, doesn’t forget his origins. He learned the art of survival from his mother, grandmother and aunt. “Women raised me,” he says. “They taught me to be thorough, organized. I earned this intuition they have.”

Intuition that led him to change the course of his life. An argument with his mother, Alysha Acosta, who warned him that if he continued in the drug world, he would have to leave home when he was still a teenager, straighten his steps. Today, he motivates other kids attending his charter school SLAM! in Miami – that emphasizes sports and instills leadership – to let the kids also go “from negative to positive.”

In fact, his six children are his engine. “Being a dad is the only true love that I have,” says the artist, whose fortune amounted to $12 million in 2014 according to Forbes magazine. “For me, the most important thing is to teach by example.” So it takes time, but his busy schedule seems like an action movie. “My life is like James Bond,” he jokes. And if he has a Bond girl? “There’s always room for love,” he admits, “but these beings are the most protected.”

Besides singing in his New Year’s party in Miami (which will air on FOX on December 31), Pitbull wants to fulfill the dream that one day he will sing with Celia Cruz; and sing in Cuba after it becomes free. “[I want to] sing for her, for everyone who died without seeing or touching this land,” he says. His own dreams, he adds, have already come true. “I am the best example of the American dream, and that is not a lie” he says. “If you want to, go and fight me.”

Read the interview in Spanish below:

Pitbull es un hombre que saluda con un fuerte apretón de manos y les abre la puerta a las damas. Al menos asi lo hizo durante esta sesion de fotos en Miami. Y su entrevista exclusiva? Fue concedida en el asiento trasero de un lujoso auto mientras su chofer lo llevaba a una reunion para ultimar los detalles de la serie, Life, basada en su gira musical, que se transmitira por Spike TV. Es evidente que esta superestrella – cuyo grito de guerra es “Dale!” – no para.

De hecho, su nuevo CD Dale (de disquera Mr. 305) fue creado en aviones, yates, hoteles e islas por todo el planeta. Gracias a no quedarse quieto, su pegajose musica se destaca hoy en las radio y en un sinnumero de discotecas, su picara sonrisa adorna vallas comerciales y cuenta con su propio vodka, linea de ropa, perfume y restaurantes – lo cual lo ha convertido en una fuerza global imparable y la figura mas influyente del ano de “People en Espanol”.

Como surgio la leyenda de Pitbull? “Un amigo mio me dio el nombre por siempre estar peleando muy duro con las palabras, en la vida, en mi carrera, mordiendo, no ladrando”, cuenta entra risas el cubanoamericano Armando Christian Perez, de 34 anos, que no olvida sus origenes. El arte de la supervivencia lo aprendio de su madre, abuela y su tia. “Las mujeres me criaron”, dice. “Me ensenaron a se detallista, organizado. Me transmitieron esa intuicion que tienen”.

Intuicion que lo llevo a cambiar el rumbo de su vida. Una discusion con su mama, Alysha Acosta, quien le advirtio de que si seguia en el mundo de las drogas tendria que irse de su casa cuando era aun adolescente, lo hizo enderezas sus pasos. Hoy, el motiva a otros jovenes que asisten a su escuela charter SLAM! en Miami – que enfatiza los deportes e inculca liderazgo – a tambien pasar “de negativo a positivo”.

De hecho. sus seis hijos son su motor. “Ser papi es el unico amor verdadero que tengo”, reconoce el artista, cuya fortuna ascendia a $12 milliones en el 2014 segun la revista Forbes. “Para mi, lo mas importante es ensenarles con mi ejemplo”. Por eso le dedica tiempo, aunque su hiper cargada agenda parezca cosa de pelicula. “Es un vida tipo James Bond”, bromea. Y en ella tiene a una Chica Bond? “Siempre hay espacio para el amor”, admite, “pero a esos seres son los que mas proteges”.

Además de cantar en la fiesta de Año Nuevo en Miami (que se transmitira por la cadena FOX el 31 de diciembre), Pitbull quiere cumplir el sueno que un dia tuvo su compatriota Celia Cruz: cantar en una Cuba libre. “[Quiero] cantar para ella, para todo el mundo que se murio sin ver o tocar su tierra”, senala. Sus propios suenos, agrega, ya se han hecho realidad. “Soy el mejor ejemplo de que el sueno americano no es una menitra”, afirma. “Si lo quieres, ve ya lucha lo.”

Pitbull Talks About Giving fans the Time of Their Lives in Vegas 

image
Prior to kicking off his mini-residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Mr. 305 talked to Vegas.com about becoming Mr. 702!

Take a look at the article below!

¡Dale! All we can say is that when (not if) you go to see Pitbull at Planet Hollywood, make sure you wear your dancing shoes; you’ll be moving, shaking and dropping in ways you maybe didn’t know were possible.

Kicking off his seven-show, “Time of Our Lives” residency last night with his chart-topping “Don’t Stop the Party,” it took one word out of Mr. Worldwide’s mouth to have the 7,000-member audience in the Axis Theater at Planet Hollywood up on their feet and dancing.

Joined onstage by his band and his troupe of sumptuous dancers, the suave Miami rapper entertained the crowd with a variety of his best known American hits as well as some of his old school classics from his debut album “M.I.A.M.I.” (an abbreviation for Money Is A Major Issue).

Prior to the opening night, we had a chance to sit down with the mega-star and discovered why this concert is especially important to him.

“To me, Vegas is an honor and an amazing opportunity,” Pitbull explained. “But more than anything, because of my family being from Cuba, Havana is what spawned the idea for Vegas. So once everything went down with the revolution in Cuba, everybody shot up to Vegas, you know, Meyer Lansky and Bugsy Siegel and what they did up there. So, to be able to play in Vegas is something that is deeply rooted, a tremendous honor and also a big step in our career.”

Opening his show with a video montage explaining the revolution in Cuba to the audience and relating that to his humble upbringing, Pitbull offered concertgoers insight to his personal life and the meaning behind his Vegas show before even stepping foot on the stage.

However, once the mega-star was ushered onstage via smoke bursts and an unforgettable laser light show, the party kicked up to 11.

“I say, y’all having a good time out there?” Pitbull questioned and the crowd affirmatively answered with a simultaneous wild scream.

“When it comes to the show, it’s all about energy, all about having a great time, for two hours I would say,” said Pitbull. “We are going to try to, in one way or another, give it the Vegas remix but more than anything it’s just all about fun.”

And while we are not perfectly clear on what Pitbull meant by “Vegas remix” we are pretty confident that it had everything to do with energizing effects such the massive fire plumes that shot off when he performed his 2014 smash hit “Fireball.”

Not just fun for the audience, it is very clear that Pitbull loves performing all of his songs, “Fireball” in particular, and it shows: “The number that I think has a lot of ‘Vegas’ to it and even when I perform it on tour, it would be ‘Fireball,’” he said. “I mean, that record right there, I think, embodies everything that has to do with Vegas…Vegas itself being a fireball, Vegas itself being a spot where everybody goes, you know, Sin City – what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas and ‘Fireball,’ to me, has that energy; it’s like evil vs. good so I can’t wait to perform that and really give it that Vegas twist.”
Whether the energetic performer was entertaining the crowds by working every angle of the stage (we want to know his cardio plan because he totally killed it), wowing us with special effects and enticing video displays, or kicking back a little bit while his sexy dancers took control, there was not a single dull moment in this party.
And if you’re hoping to catch Mr. 305 out and about in Sin City, you’ll most likely find him indulging in his favorite Cuban restaurants around town or partying in his hotel room: “I’m more of the low-key type and when it comes to the craziness, I just keep it in the hotel room,” he explained.” “I’m like the Gingerbread Man, catch me if you can!”

So for all of you party animals out there, if you want to add some spice to your Vegas vacay, head down to Planet Hollywood and catch Pitbull while he’s still here. And take this as a fair warning: You will be in party mode long after the show is over.

Upcoming performances: Ticket prices from $70.25, all performances start at 9 p.m.

Seven Questions with Pitbull

image
Pitbull recently did an interview with Vegas SEVEN where he talked about Time of our Lives, SLAM! Vegas, out dancing Enrique Iglesias, and more!

Check it out below!

What do you hope your die-hard fans will get out of your residency? What do you have in store for them?

To perform in Vegas is definitely an honor. [Think about] folks like Elvis and Sinatra, and all the amazing names that have been to Vegas. Also Vegas is deeply rooted in our [Cuban] culture. The idea of Vegas was spawned from Havana. [Right] before the revolution happened is basically when Vegas took off. It’s great and amazing for me to be a part of this platform.

As far as the die-hard fans and what to expect? What they’re going to get is energy, an escape for at least an hour and a half—not to think about bills, or all the other negative things in their lives—and hopefully, they leave motivated and inspired. As far as preparation, it’s real simple. We’re not trying to reinvent the wheel. It’s all about adding on to what we have and giving it that little Vegas remix. We’ve been looking at the different stages and different setups, what the dancers are going to wear, what they’re not going to wear—hopefully they don’t wear much. They’re going to be up there sexy and sophisticated.

More importantly, what are you going to wear? You have this reputation, and you always come dressed to the nines. How do you manage to stay cool under that tux?

I love coming up looking real clean and sharp, and then getting sweaty and crazy because that’s what it’s all about—having a great time. When you’re up in the club looking sharp, but you’re dancing and having a good time, you’re going to be looking kind of like a mess. That’s a good thing because I want to show the people that I’m working for them and how much I really enjoy being up there performing. That way they can walk away and say that guy is a hard worker.

You recently announced that you’re going to open a Sports Leadership and Management Academy charter school in Vegas, something you did in Miami in 2013. How has sports and leadership contributed to your success?

[Participating in] in sports is important because it creates discipline. It creates punctuality. You understand what it means to work for a team. It also creates resourcefulness. When you throw all those things in a pot, that’s what allows you to become a leader. And the only way to lead is to lead by example. [I want] to mold their minds and teach them how to believe in themselves, how to work hard, and how they can accomplish anything as long as they envision it.
It’s amazing to see what a young mind can accomplish. We want them to be excited about education. So what better than to be doing algebra and have it based around football, baseball or basketball. And it’s been amazing for us. The school we have in Miami is a high-B school; we took all the kids in D and F schools, and now they’re in a high-B school. I’m sure it’ll be an A school this year. It’s the priceless part of the journey to help people really believe in themselves, inspire and motivate them. That’s when you can create, and I mean this in the nicest way possible, little monsters. That’s what I’m very excited about.

Speaking of your journey, have you had a chance to visit Cuba?

I went in 2001. I won’t be going back until it is completely free, and then we’ll be there doing a concert. I think 3 to 4 million people will be out there to watch that. And I can’t wait to live that dream for everybody who had to leave the country.

Have you thought about putting down deeper roots in Vegas?

The thing about the residency is that it is a temporary residency. I’m hoping that—well, I know it—will lead to a permanent residency, so I love Vegas and I love to be out there.
Ricky Martin was just in Vegas. Are you going to call him and ask him for advice?

No. I mean Ricky is great, and he’s given me the best advice in the world. He taught me to live la vida loca.

Who is a better dancer? You or Enrique Iglesias?

Ricky is a better dancer, but Jennifer [Lopez] is the ultimate dancer. Enrique? I can definitely outdance Enrique.

Pitbull Talks About his new Fragrance, his Cuban Heritage and more with Yahoo!

 
Pitbull recently did an interview with YahooBeauty to talk about his new fragrance, his Cuban heritage, his grooming secrets and more!

Read the article below!

With more than 6 million albums and 70 million singles sold worldwide, there’s no question that at some point or another, a song by Armando Christian Perez has been stuck in your head. Of course, you might know him better by his nickname, Mr. 305, or more commonly, the artist Pitbull.

The 34-year-old Cuban rapper is holding residency in Vegas from September 23rd to mid-October, but even while he’s in Sin City, Pitbull is globally hustling. Pitbull has a brand of premium vodka, Voli, and in early August, he launched two fragrances: Pitbull Miami Man and Pitbull Miami Woman. Next year, the Miami-born entertainer is scheduled to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And of course there is his music. “We just put out a Spanish album that was No. 1. The single was No. 1, also. It’s called Taxi,” Pitbull tells Yahoo Beauty. “I’m working on the new album, and we’ll be putting out the new single and setting up the world tour around January/February.”

Yahoo Beauty: What kind of woman did you envision wearing the your new fragrance?

Pitbull: As far as the Miami one, I want you to feel empowered, I want you to feel sophisticated, I want you to feel sexy, but more than anything, I want you to feel like you earned something in life. When I say I’m the epitome of the American Dream – because I came from nothing to something – I want you to put it on, and it inspires you, like, “I can take on anything in life, especially anything today.” As you put it on in the morning, I’m hoping to inspire, “I’m going to get this done.”

What inspired the scent? How did it come about?

For me, growing up being raised by women, I was always around such great fragrances. Any fragrance I smell around the world, I try to figure out a way – like with music – to collaborate or remix. I grabbed my favorite fragrances and I started to mix them and I came up with a smell. I put together all the fragrances that I like. I said, “I want to do something along these lines.” That’s how it came about.

What scent do you prefer on the opposite sex?

I definitely love a soft, sexy smell on the opposite sex; nothing that’s too strong, nothing that’s too alerting. What I like is when you smell something when you meet somebody; you smell it and you go, “Wow. Can I smell that again?” That’s the kind of scent that I like, which is soft and sexy.

What is your grooming routine?

As far as grooming, every day is the same routine: shave, aftershave, lotion. There’s no secret! I don’t have any favorite products.

Are there any Cuban grooming products or secrets that the world doesn’t know about?

That’s a better question for the Cuban women! Off the top of my head, maybe putting mayonnaise and eggs in their hair to make it stronger. A lot of women I know did that, growing up.

What do Cuban men find beautiful?

I’m sure everybody has their own opinion of what they like. You can be the most beautiful and sexy woman in the world, but if you’re not sophisticated, then there’s really no point in sitting down. If we can’t have a conversation, then the rest isn’t going to be fun. I do like a woman that is very secure and sexy/exotic. She doesn’t have to be beautiful and gorgeous – just has to be something exotic, whether it’s your hair that’s wavy and crazy or a certain look that you have; the way you wear your clothes.

When did you visit Cuba last? 

Last time I was there was 2001.

What Cuban artists should people get to know?

There’s a group called Gente de Zona, which means People of the Zone. They’ve got a record right now with Marc Anthony that’s huge and another with Enrique Iglesias. That’s a group to look out for. And El Micha. There’s so much talent down there, whether it’s people who are doing music or people who are painting. It’s just crazy. It’s like the Twilight Zone. You’re going from 2015 back to 1959. The culture down there is just so ready and willing to learn.

What are your favorite things about Cuba and Cuban culture?

It’s a very special culture. It’s a culture that’s been through a lot of history and created a lot of history. It’s a culture that’s always been moving the dial. There was a Vegas [Miami] that was born due to what went on in Havana in the 50s. When the revolution happened, that’s what spawned the idea. Everyone came to the United States one way or another, whether it was a boat, or however it may be. Now Miami is one of the meccas of not only the United States, but around the world. It just goes to show you what our culture is all about. It’s about building and creating a future, for your family.

Pitbull Makes History in Vegas

 
Pitbull recently did an interview with Las Vegas Magazine to talk about his upcoming Planet Hollywood limited-time engagement, Time of our Lives, at The Axis.

Read the article below!

In a week that finds him both enjoying the ongoing success of his album Dale and meeting with his team to lay recording plans for 2016, Pitbull shows no shortage of enthusiasm in discussing his upcoming “Time of Our Lives” multidate engagement at Planet Hollywood Resort. The Miami-born rapper performs seven dates between Sept. 23 and Oct. 7 at resort venue The Axis, adding him to the realm of Strip resident headliners and making him the first rapper in history to earn a Las Vegas extended engagement. It’s also happening during the final year of his seven-year plan for success, designated for “making history.”

“That’s definitely a part of making history right there, to even have this opportunity to perform in Vegas, because it’s something that I feel was … the idea was spawned and blossomed in Cuba, in Havana,” says the 34-year-old son of Cuban expatriates who named him Armando Christian Perez. Prerevolutionary Cuba’s tourism influenced the development of Las Vegas, and after Castro came to power many Cuban entertainers left the island nation for the Strip. “Vegas is something that is deeply rooted in culture for me and, I would say, my family, but to also be a part of what I would see as the (entertainment) elite in Vegas is amazing.”

It may have seemed an audacious goal more than a decade ago when Pitbull’s “Culo” was ubiquitously heard in Vegas nightclubs, but he has arguably made an indelible mark in the music industry and beyond. Dale is his ninth album and, due to its diversity of influences, serves as a metaphor for his hometown’s melting pot. He is in demand for endorsements, has his own brand of vodka, Voli, and an eponymous fragrance, hosted his inaugural New Year’s Eve television special in December and maintains a development deal for online content.
He can envision his name on Strip marquees for extended periods, though. “Obviously, that would be the goal, to have something permanent in Vegas,” says Pitbull. “But just to be able to have two weeks over there and really soak up the city, soak up the people, soak up the energy … for us on our career side it’s great. It’s only going to give us more ideas for records and opportunities, but more than anything it’s amazing to have this opportunity, and I’m still in awe about it.”

During his residency, Pitbull also plans to break ground on the Vegas version of his successful Sports Leadership & Management charter school in Miami. Florida recently made Pitbull its official tourism ambassador in recognition of his often-expressed civic pride, and politicians are rumored to have attempted to curry favor in advance of next year’s presidential primaries.

Pitbull has his eyes on a different prize, though. “Vegas is what it is now, and Cuba’s going to reopen,” he says. “I’m hoping to be the bridge between them, and be the one that performs in Vegas and also gets the chance to have a residency in Cuba once it completely opens up.”

Planet Hollywood Resort, 9 p.m. Sept. 23, 25-26 & 30, Oct. 2-3 & 7, $39-$169 plus tax and fee. 800.745.3000 Ticketmaster
