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. 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.
My goal will be to do things that I enjoy, never to be a billionaire or whatever. If I don’t feel passionate about something, then I’m not going to do it, no matter how much it is. But, hey, if we get to a billion one day, then we get to a billion – Bad Bunny
