Canceling an event of that magnitude is not easy. I have a lot of friends infected with the omicron variant, so it’s best to be safe. Even, I was nervous to attend because everyone is catching it.

My wife and I are being responsible and we don’t hang out much. Only to the store to buy groceries and nothing else. We don’t even see the family and we are like when the pandemic just started. Since she is going to have the baby at any moment, we are being very careful.

Sometimes there are situations where the people who work for you do not understand, they prefer to leave things like that just to solve, they do not believe that they can reach a certain level and they do not believe in themselves. That’s when I arrived and I said: ‘yes, it is important’. You have to do things with perfection and reach excellence, not seeking to win awards, but simply to say this is how things should be done. Instead of sleeping or eating, I dedicate myself to more hours and times in making things perfect, I sacrifice my health so that things happen in this way like the Grammys.
