Julieta Venegas: “The World Is Chauvinist”

PARIS – Mexican singer Julieta Venegas, the winner of five Latin Grammys, is combining her recent role as a mother with her artistic career in a world where women still have to fight to “change roles.”

“The world is chauvinist” and “there’s still a long way to go for women in Latin America to have the position they deserve,” she said in an interview with Efe in Paris.

Venegas, who is traveling with 10-month-old daughter Simona, is experiencing her motherhood “intensely” but she is not “locked up in the house cooking all day” because “now we’re another kind of mother.”

“When I was pregnant they asked me who the father is. What does that matter to them? If I were a man they would not notice my belly. I have no reason to open up my private life because I have a daughter. They aren’t asking questions of the men all day long,” she said.

The singer, who for the first time will share the stage with her compatriots Ely Guerra and Natalia Lafourcade to celebrate Spanish Language Day in Paris, an initiative of the Cervantes Institute, confessed that she still has not thought about how to reconcile her personal and professional lives when her daughter starts to go to school.

“I still don’t know how I’m going to resolve it. I see my male musician friends who have children and they’re out in the world happy with life because the kids stay with the mother. For me it’s different. I have to ‘rearrange’ everything somehow,” said Venegas, who has sold millions of records since she began her professional singing career in 1997. EFE
