Maluma Stays Faithful To His Roots While Revealing He Doesn’t Like Having New Friends In The Music Industry
The Colombian singer-songwriter Maluma has become one of the most popular pop stars with his catchy music tunes and collaborations with stars like Jennifer Lopez and recently he gave an interview to ELLE revealing how faithful he is to his old friends in Medellín.
The 27-year-old artist is on the rise with his reggaeton and Latin music gaining a massive worldwide audience in a year, especially with his single ‘Hawái‘ as it reached number three on the Billboard Global 200.
It seems like Maluma will make a name for himself in 2021 not only with his success in music but also with his acting because he will play Lopez’s fiancee in a rom-com named ‘Marry Me‘ with Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson.
Aside from these, he spent most of the pandemic in Colombia with his family and friends and he revealed his thoughts about making new friends after he became a celebrity.
In his interview, Maluma stated that he doesn’t like having new friends in the music industry because every time he tried to make one, he got stabbed behind and lost his faith in new relationships. Now, he prefers to stay safe with his old friends as he feels more comfortable with them.
Here’s what he said:
“I don’t really like having new friends. I try to make friends in the industry, but it is very hard. Sometimes I feel like they want to be my friends, but once I show them my back, they stab me.”
In the continuation of his statements, Maluma explains that he believes staying faithful to your roots is the best option because his old friends were there for him when he didn’t have any money. He didn’t forget the days he went to lunch at their houses and he stated that now they are enjoying his success together.
“I prefer staying safe with my friends, where I always feel comfortable. When I didn’t have any money, they were there for me, inviting me to their house for lunch.
They’re the ones who were laughing at me, and now they are enjoying my success. That’s life—just being grateful for everything that has happened.”
