In the magazine, the Cuban American rapper opens up about everything from dating to being a dad to his four children.
Here’s what Pitbull had to share…
On His Relationship Status: “I always tell people that I’m single, bilingual and ready to mingle!”
On His Feelings About Women: “A woman made me a man at the end of the day [referring to his mother]. I love to learn from women, so I keep a lot around me. They make the world go round.”
On Keeping Things Spicy In The Bedroom: “You shouldn’t step into a relationship going, ‘You’re my property.’ Everyone has fantasies. So speak about it, have fun. It doesn’t mean you’re necessarily going to do anything about it. Sometimes I may mess around with my woman and say, ‘Oye, tell your boyfriend to leave because I’m on my way home. But tell him to make the bed before he goes!”
On Being A Father: “My kids are all characters. It’s crazy to watch a young mind and what a sponge it is. Sometimes my son will be like, ‘Are we going in the Benz or the Beamer?’ And I’m like, ‘Hey, it’s the white care or the silver car, OK? And what do you have to do to get something like this? Work hard. Because I’m not going to give it to you.’ I tell them that my job is to be out here and their job is to go to school.
When the time is right, I will tell them everything about myself. I want them to know that they can always talk to me. I’m never going to judge them. I want them to be tough mentally but beautiful spiritually.”
On Representing Cuban Americans: “I’m not here to exploit our culture – I’m here to empower it, and I want to build a brand like Jennifer Lopez.”
