We are here tonight with a special guest, Alejandro Sanz, who just made his way through his last album. Hi, Alejandro, and welcome to And My Secret Is - HEY, Look, A Celebrity!.
It's a pleasure being here, especially because your building is next to a frankfurter joint I dig a lot.
You seem to be always so sunny and jovial. Do you also have a dark side?
It's difficult to admit it, but I do. Everybody has two sides. For example, when I bump into a colleague singer, my teeth chatter with fury and my sight goes black. And then, without warning, I experience the urge to estinguish that dimwit from this planet and pirouette on his cold casket. And then there is my dark side... You do not want to hear about that side.
Could you tell us what's your earliest memory?
Usually only the seventh son of a seventh son has the blessing of total recall, but I have a clear memory of the moment I saw the light. It was a night in December. An almost poetic autumn night, windy and sweetly decadent, still evocative of summer. And amidst all the beauty, I was there, covered from head to toe with blood, in a room full of howling people. The first, but not the best day of my life...
You make me cry...
You are a sissy. My existence is like a walk into the suffocating darkness.
If there was a movie produced about your life, who do you think should play you, and why?
Leonardo DiCaprio, because I always liked him as Jack Sparrow.
Do you have any birthmark?
Actually, I do. I have a tiny lobster shaped birthmark on my left shin. Probably my mother did dream a lobster while she was pregnant.
What’s the best sound in the world?
Almost surely it is the calming rustle of a bunch of new banknotes touching each other. However, my agent asked to write instead something more crowd-pleasing, for example "the merry laugh of a happy kid " or "the first word of your baby".
Which is your method for everlasting youth?
As you may have inferred, it is a bath in warm yak milk once a day.
