Zahara has said tonight in Toledo that he has felt "a lot of fear" in recent weeks and who has received and lived a "bestial hatred" after the controversy with a poster that was withdrawn by another image when he was considered offensive, but he has also left Of course, in those moments he has always remembered why he did the fucking album.
"I hope those people who were indignantly because they thought I was calling a whore to the Virgin, they understood that this photo is a complaint. A complaint of how we are required to be perfect, because of the pressure we feel to be mothers, by how it is expected to be We are holy and for each and every one of the time they have called us a bitch. "
These words has said, very excited, Zahara on stage, before 1,000 people who have come to their concert within the Toledo Alive cycle and taking an image of the poster of their slut album in their hands.
The poster announced from the concert tonight, in which Zahara appears dressed as a virgin, holding a child in his arms and with a band in which you can read whore, the name of his last album, was withdrawn the past 11 of August and replaced by another image, something that generated great controversy because Vox had requested it and because numerous singers and artists showed their support to Zahara.
The concert has started calmly, but the audience has been encouraging as the songs were advancing and half the Zahara concert has spoken to thank "everything you are giving me" and also to explain how it has been felt in these weeks.
"As I have been living and feeling this strength thanks to you," he said, "I have been living and receiving a bestial hatred that, I have to admit it, it has also made me feel very insecure, very small many times. I have felt much afraid many times. "
And there have also been days, he has continued, when he stayed "petrified" before climbing the stage and felt "true panic" for facing his songs and everything he was living.
But in those moments I remembered a friend, who had to run, with his son in his arms, because her husband had just hit him, "And I take all that anger and I take all that anger and I upload to this stage and I remember why I made this album I remember why it's called 'whore' and I remember why I did that cover and I remember why I've been the brand, I remember my history and why it's still necessary to continue telling, "he said.
It has regretted, in this sense, that "when some people used my artistic expressions to attract attention and to assault me, I thought that the more than 150 interviews I did when this album came from nothing."
Zahara has been very wrapped by the public at his concert of Toledo, who has applauded standing for several minutes when he has spoken.
Shortly after midnight, two hours after starting the concert, Zahara has abandoned the stage with all attendees applauding standing.
"Completely grateful for what you are giving me, thank you really," said the singer.Updated Date: 04 September 2021, 14:15
