Latin pop megastar Bad Bunny earned praise for wearing a dress on the recent cover of Harper’s Bazaar, telling reporters that he isn’t beholding to anyone and can wear what he wants.
But the “Party” singer added that he doesn’t wear dresses to “become famous.”
He said, “I don’t do it to become more famous or to call attention or to disrespect anyone. People on the outside can think that I have a strategy or I wear this to call for attention, but in reality I just know who I am."
Bad Bunny added that he has been interested in women’s clothing since he was a child.
He said, “I always remember seeing the pieces in women’s clothing and they would always fit me so much better and they had so much different variety."
The singer added that he has reached an age where he wants to be “able to dress in the way that I really want to.”
“To a point, the fame and where I am gives me the confidence to do all of these things. I’m taking advantage of this moment in my life when I can do whatever I want and wear what I want, so I get to live life more authentically.”
“Maybe at the very beginning of my career, I tried to pretend I was someone that I’m not, but I learned that that’s the way artists loose themselves, it’s because they forgot about themselves —them as a person — and invented a fictitious personality."
