“As you can imagine, yesterday, logically I came out of a complicated moment in there. Perhaps the image I gave was very harsh, perhaps arrogant. You know that I have always had a smile for the press. I came out of a hard and complicated moment, at no time have I wanted to appear arrogant, or cold, or harsh, or anything like that, it is simply a place where I place myself. “I know myself well and I know that I put myself there to feel strong”explained the artist in front of several media outlets that have been at the forefront of the case outside the prison.

However, he drew attention when he said that he He was not going to show himself crying about what had happened.
