What I really need to do, and I think it's really important, is to lock my cellphone. When it's a day off, if you're on your phone you'll never rest the right way. Even thinking about work is work. When I'm resting I prefer to lock my cellphone and I ask my the people who are with me to not be on their phones too.
I started singing in church with my grandpa. The church was like school for me. Everything I know about music I learned there.
When I make music, I always try to do more than make a song that makes people dance and have fun. I try to send a message, or give a reason for people to discuss it further.
Music doesn't choose its public. Music doesn't have prejudice.
People care a lot about what others think about them. At the end of the day, all that’s important is that you’re happy, so I try be as honest as I can with everything. So when I show my cellulite off in the video, it was to show that women don’t need to care about that.
I don't really care about the way people do things. I just want to do it my way.
Anitta attended a technical school, but she didn't enroll at college as she became famous and successful at a very young age.
Anitta starred in four movies and TV shows so far:
In a very emotional post published on Instagram in September 2017, Anitta spoke about the situation in Brazil and about homosexuality. Here is what she said:
That's what happens in my country. People dying, hungry, the government killing the country with corruption, no education, no hospitals, no opportunities... and the authorities are wasting their time to announce that homosexuality is a sickness.
Homosexuals and bisexuals now have a treatment for this "sickness" here. So I ask... who is the real sick person here?
I'm praying God that these real sick people find the cure of these crazy minds and start to look at the real important things here.
