Thalía reveals her more passionate side in new disc ‘Amore mio’

Mexican singer Thalía, who presented in Mexico City her most recent recording, Amore mio, said that these days she feels “more liberated, without taboos, letting go, but calm, loving, devoted and passionate”.

The Latin diva, 43, told a press conference Monday that she projects all those feelings in her new album of 14 songs. “It’s a disc that picks you up, raises your spirits and reminds you that you should love and cherish youself and enjoy life”, she said.

For more than an hour the singer, actress and businesswoman discussed various topics, including the importance of social media as a way to express youself on anything that comes to mind and to imbue “positive thinking” in others.

Thalía, who has 14 million followers on Facebook and more than 6 million on Twitter, said it’s essential to transmit such messages “in a collective way because this world that surrounds us… is turned upside down”.

The planet is suffering political and social changes – it’s all out of control, she said, adding that her responsibility “is to see the positive side of life and try to project it”.

Asked about the current situation Mexico is going through, she said she feels shocked, particularly about the 43 students who went missing on September 26 in Guerrero state.

“We’re going through a very difficult, complicated time. As a mother I can’t image the pain of those women”, she said in reference to the mothers of the students, whose suffering she compared with that of her own mother when in 2002 her sisters Laura Zapata and Ernestina Sodi were kidnapped as they were leaving a theater in Mexico City. They were released two months later.

For Amore mio, Thalía took part in composing some of the songs, which include duets with rapper Fat Joe and singer Becky G. Thalía, who in 2015 will launch a fashion line of clothing and accessories, is currently in Mexico to promote ‘Amore mio’ and to film the special program Gala de Telenovelas for Televisa.
