Despite having lived his life in the public eye, Bosé still remains an enigma in one area. Like that of fellow pop star Ricky Martin, Bosé's sexual orientation has been a much-discussed topic in the Latin media. Just last year, Spanish TV program Hormigas Blancas dedicated an entire episode to the singer's personal life.
But for Bosé, it seems, these intrusions don't amount to much. "My private life belongs to me," he says, raising his voice. "The press doesn't really affect me in any way whatsoever.... I know there are some people in the press trying to take advantage [of my privacy], but the reality is that my life is my work ... which is all that I have time to do."
How could anyone resist that come-hither stare?
Miguel Bosé performs Thursday, March 6, at the James L. Knight Center, 400 SE 2nd Ave, Miami. The show starts at 8 p.m., and tickets cost $49 to $99. Call 305-416-5977, or visit www.ticketmaster.com.
In fact the long process of recording this latest album, followed by a world tour, has left the hard-working Bosé, for perhaps the first time in his career, with no clear plans for his next move. "I've been working on Papito for more than three years, giving it my body and soul," he says. "So once this tour is done, I'm going to take a year to recharge my batteries."
Bosé fans shouldn't have reason to worry, though; the singer looks forward to the next half of his career. "There are still so many goals that I still want to accomplish," he says. "I still feel like I have a lot left to say."
