As ‘On Your Feet!’ hits Broadway, we’re learning a few fun facts about the ‘Queen of Latin Pop,’ whose life and music inspired the musical.
Larry King sat down with the pop sensation to discuss her thoughts on the next generation of Latin musicians and political issues such as immigration. Here are a few things we learned from the interview:
1. One of Estefan’s hidden talents is that she’s a great eyebrow plucker. In fact, friends come over to her house just for her plucking expertise.
2. She’s passionate about boating and has captained her own vessel. She’s taken three courses in seamanship, piloting, and navigation.
3. Her guilty pleasure? Making cosmos, a drink that’s she’s perfected, of course.
4. Estefan says there’s no secret to her marriage — only true love for each other.
5. If she weren’t a singer she’d love to be a psychologist or a diplomat. In school she studied psychology, and planned to go to the Sorbonne in France to study international law and become a diplomat.
