FAME ICON exclusive Q&A with Anahí
1. RBD gained immense worldwide popularity. How did you handle the sudden fame and
the demands of being in the spotlight?
Anahi: You know, when you're in it, you don't realize everything that's happening in your
surroundings or you don't grasp it because you're working all the time. In my case, I grew
up in this environment, and when you're in it, you're not aware of what's happening
outside, or rather like I mentioned, you don't grasp it.
2. Your international fan base has been very loyal and dedicated. What is it like to have such
a strong connection with your followers and how have they influenced your career
Anahi: I can't thank them enough for their loyalty and affection. They are always there
for me, we are one, the RBD generation. They know I love them very much and I always
read the beautiful things they write to me.
3. Can you talk about upcoming projects or collaborations that your fans can look forward
to, now that the tour has come to an end?
Anahi: The first thing is to finish the tour on December 21st at the Azteca Stadium, then
rest and be with family. After that, we'll see what happens, everything has been very
beautiful but also too intense.
4. Many aspiring artists and actors see you as a role model. What advice do you have for
those starting their journey in the entertainment industry?

believing in what they want to do, no matter how many obstacles they encounter. It's
5. How does it feel to return to the stage after so long?
Anahi: There are too many emotions together that I feel in each concert. Being with those
4 brothers/ sisters that life gave me is different. Sometimes we all cry, other times we
come out to laugh. The only thing I feel is gratitude because if I am here it's because of
the debt I had with the RBD generation.
6. Are there artists, musicians, or actors who have inspired your work or had a profound
impact on your career?
Anahi: Yes, one of the icons I admire the most is Michael Jackson, there are many others
that I admire and have inspired me, but especially him.
