Your music exudes sensuality. What do you think makes you most desirable?
I think self-confidence is the best makeup you can wear. Maybe the videos I’ve done lately have more of a sensual charge, but that’s a reflection of the way I feel today. As I approach my 30s, I am starting to feel comfortable in my own skin. When I was 23, I used to wear tons of makeup and layers and layers of foundation. Now, I don’t wear foundation, not even for my shows.
When it comes to putting together an outfit, who do you turn to for the most honest advice?
My boyfriend [Antonio de la Rúa, son of the former president of Argentina], he has a good eye. He’s not a stylist, but I wish I listened to him more in the past when he told me “Don’t wear that.” When I see pictures of myself in [some] outfits, I think, “Oh my God, he was right.” He would be the happiest man on earth if I was in sneakers and a rock ’n’ roll T-shirt. He doesn’t like when I get made up.
Critics often compare you to Alanis Morissette. Is that a compliment?
She’s one of the best female singer-songwriters of this decade. I have a great admiration for her. If I ever met her, I know that we would have a lot to talk about. She’s one of those people who I feel I have things in common with.
