This week we present a special edition of the Robles & Rosado experience. Our own Mike Robles interviews Tejano music superstar, the incomparable Stefani Montiel.
Stefani Montiel recorded her full-length album debut at age nine and has gone on to earn six Grammy nominations over an illustrious career. Stefani’s latest album, Paraíso, continues her exploration into new musical territory while not losing site of her Tejano roots.
In this very candid interview, Stefani Montiel touches on a wide range of topics including her friendship with the legendary Selena, her hope for greater visibility for female Tejano music artists, and struggles she had early in her career.
Share the funny, human side of this very talented singer.
Did you catch the Cohetes game last night? What about the Espuelas? The Toros?
NBA’s Latin Night promotion is front and center on Mike’s mind. While the professional basketball league claims it is addressing a need and owning up to its responsibilities to the Latino community Mike believes it’s really just all about the Benjamins.
This week on the show we also revisit the Saturday Night Live controversy as a new wave of online protests attempt to force NBC and Lorne Michaels to hire Latina performers. We here at Robles & Rosado HQ are shocked that this is still such a hot button issue especially when you consider that we’ve been hammering home a solution to this issue on every one of our episodes so far.
Despite first impressions both Mike and Pedro are positive, happy-go-lucky guys. In an attempt to actively combat the dreaded Latino Crab Syndrome, they lay out a campaign to promote a positive image of Latinos in Hollywood and the media with their #LatinosForLatinos hashtag and series of posts.
To wrap things up, the Bochinche segment focuses on the increasingly ugly child support battle between music superstar Marc Anthony and his beauty queen ex-wife Dayanara Torres.
Robles & Rosado are especially feisty in this episode (and especially funny) but please don’t get upset or offended. We’re just having fun…
