May 6, 2011 – Cuban American music sensation Pitbull graces the June-July 2011 cover of Latina magazine’s “Hot Guys Issue,” which hits newsstands on May 17th. This marks the first time in more than two years that a male celebrity has been on Latina’s cover!
Pitbull (a.k.a. Armando Christian Pérez) opens up to Latina about how he views women, his relationship with his four kids and how he’s transformed himself from ‘Mr. 305’ to ‘Mr. Worldwide.’ On someone special in his life: “I always tell people that I’m single, bilingual and ready to mingle!” On women: “A woman made me a man at the end of the day [referring to his mom].
I love to learn from women, so I keep a lot around me. They make the world go round.” On relationships & loyalty: “You shouldn’t step into a relationship going, ‘You’re my property.’ Everyone has fantasies. So speak about it, have fun. It doesn’t mean you’re necessarily going to do anything about it. Sometimes I may mess around with my woman and say, ‘Oye, tell your boyfriend to leave because I’m on my way home. But tell him to make the bed before he goes!’” On his kids: “When the time is right, I will tell them everything about myself. I want them to know that they can always talk to me. I’m never going to judge them. I want them to be tough mentally but beautiful spiritually.” On his transformation: “I’m not here to ex! ploit our culture – I’m here to empower it, and I want to build a brand like Jennifer Lopez.” Be sure to watch Pitbull & Jennifer Lopez perform their hit single “On the Floor” on American Idol this Thursday, May 5th at 8pmET on FOX. Latina & FOX are offering one lucky fan to see the American Idol season finale live in Hollywood. To enter, visit: http://www.latina.com/americanidol.
