Tu Quoque Pippo !!! ...
Oh no, Pippo, you as well, have been lured with the itch of temptation, in the interview with BLOGO , to glamorize a story that is already extraordinarily "fantastic". There is truly nothing one can do. When speaking of my debut and my life, everyone zooms their mouths into gear to bullshit a bullshitter ...
And yet, deep down, everyone knows how the story went ... Franco Miseria spotted me at Jackie O' in Rome, Italy and asked me to come to the audition for Luna Park (n.d.r. A Saturday night Italian television show) in a dance school near Piazzale Clodio .... He invited Pippo Baudo, who was so astonished and overcome with my way of dancing, that he invited me to meet Giovanni Salvi in the Rai offices of Viale mazzini (a big to-do, believe you, me ....). And, in that office I did my infamous performace upon his desk ...
Now, it wasn't "I" who refused Fantastico 6 with Lorella Cuccarini, however. It was Franco Miseria that "made me" give up that opportunity (also Fantastico 7), to do Serata d'Onore in Montecatini ... Lorella, at that time, was one of my dancers while we were on tour, and whomever knows me well, would assure you that I would NEVER have had an "amateur" in my group of dancers. To be totally sincere, I didn't even remember who she was. It would have been meat for my teeth, as in an amusing commotion ...
La Cuccarini and I are total antipodes, in relation to our lifestyles, our dancing technique, our personalities and for our personal beliefs. Nevertheless, our antagonism is the pure invention of the people working with and near us, upon which, magazines had many a "field day" for years on end.
I thank you, Pippo, for defining me as a "genius". I am flattered, but allow me to oppose the adjective "misused". I consider my "today" of total dedication towards my twins and my family, as inestimable as you can get.
Dear Pippo, I am truly happy and blessed with my life.
A big hug,
