- Congrats to all of the fans that got their questions answered in the Pitbull twitter Q&A from today:
FIFA.com: This comes from @pitbullgirl115: “Are you nervous at all to perform in the World Cup”?
I think that anybody that is an entertaine, or a performer, we always get nervous. To be in such a platform here in Sao Paulo, in Brazil, for the opening ceremony… Well, am I nervous? Of course. I am going like Litlle Johnstons: “Yeah, yo!” (laughs).
@pitbullgirl115 also asks: ‘What’s your favorite song of the official World Cup album?’
My favorite one? Man, it will have to be, coincidentally, “We Are One”.
A little bit suspicious, no?
That’s what it’s all about, man, that’s the message to tell.
Well, actually the user didn’t mention that you wouldn’t be able to say your own record, anyway.
But it’s Claudia’s and Jennifer’s record as well. So, it’s their record.
Next one, totally different subject, from @pitbullfans13: ‘Have you ever played football?”
Yeah, when I was younger I played. The sport that I loved growing up was basketball, but football was always part of the community. The neighbourhoods that I lived on were all into football. But was I any good on it? No, absolutely not (laughs).
In sports in general, do you have any favorite team?
Oh, man, the Miami Heat right now, and they are fighting for the championship. Gotta go with the Heat.
But they lost yesterday, right?
That’s alright. It’s a series. We gotta make it interesting, you know?
In another subject change @PitILoveU asked: “What would be the advice that you would give to anybody who dreams about going to the music business?”
One of my slogans is patience, passion, and perseverance. You need that to be involved with this, or with anything in life that you want to be. As far as dreams, I tell people all the time: “Wake up, and live it”. Number three is: only do it if you love it. If you think you are just going to be famous, rich, and make this money, then don’t do it.
You do it because you love it. If you have a passion for it, and no matter what happens, then everything is going to work out.
@cphamo asked a similar question, looking for more detail: “what motivated you to become a professional singer?”
I just look to music as therapy. What motivated me… Well, I remember my mother telling me that the pen is mightier than the sword, and you can see how words can touch the world. That’s exactly what we are doing here with the record ‘We Are One’ in an Opening Ceremony. Also, when I was young, my father used to take me to bars in this famous street of Miami called Calle Ocho, and he would put me in the top of the bar to recite poems from a Cuban, a guy called José Martí. He’s very powerful for us, and when I saw how powerful the words were, that young, that’s what motivated me to be able to make records, and touch the world in one way or another.

“Because of everybody up here, I am you, you are me,” Pitbull said. “I understand your struggle and I understand what you guys are about to do with your life.”
This is what rapper Pitbull told more than 300 graduates from Doral Academy Charter High School yesterday. After making a surprise visit as a guest speaker, Pitbull was also rewarded with an honorary degree in Arts and Business from Doral College for his career and educational achievements.
On education, Pitbull says: “I remember being kicked out of a public school because I didn’t have the right address. That’s why I want better schools for the kids who live where I grew up. That’s why Doral Academy was founded, and that’s why I helped create SLAM (Sports Leadership and Management Academy) in the neighborhood where I grew up — a school that offers a choice for students, like me, students who need someone to inspire them, someone to believe in them.”
Pitbull is also the first to earn the honorary award from the college. CONGRATULATIONS PITBULL!

Last night, Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez, and Claudia Leitte showed the world that ‘We Are One’ by debuting the official FIFA World Cup song as the opening act of the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. This will not be their last performance of “We Are One’ as the trio will be performing at opening in Sao Paulo on June 12!
Later on that night, Pitbull was featured in a video during JLO’s ICON award montage saying: “[Jennifer] is one of the most inspiration women on the planet.” Pitbull was also up for TOP RAP ARTIST and TOP RAP SONG for Timber in the BBMA Rap category. Unfortunately, Pitbull didn’t take home his nominations.
