New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
HOLA! USA caps off 2018 and enters 2019 (¡Hola!'s 75th year) with cover star Thalía, the undisputed queen of Latin pop. The songstress, who has continually reinvented herself over her three-decade career, brought her signature charisma and charm to the iconic Plaza Hotel for a photo shoot with Alexei Hay. During her chat with editor-in-chief Miguel
Sirgado, she touches on family life with husband Tommy Mottola and their children Sabrina and Matthew.
"I love [Tommy] as he is, and he loves me as I am; he doesn't love me more because I put on makeup or wear this kind of watch or that brand of shoes. I don't care which car he drives or that he wears a certain watch. He was born here in the Bronx; I was born in Santa
María de la Rivera. So, even though we are living such a wonderful life, we come from there; we are living this life, but if we went back there, we'd be happy. Wherever we are, we are happy."
"My daughter is intense, very intense, like me. I understand her because I know the intensity of her feelings. I can 'read' her perfectly because she is like a reflection. However, she's her own person — she's independent, unique, wonderful. My son is very pragmatic, very objective, very clear, very punctual. He's more like his dad."
