Marc Anthony Hates Being Labeled As Part Of Latin Explosion

Doug Elfman of the Las Vegas Review Journal spoke with New York native Marc Anthony about his disgust for being categorized in the “Latin explosion.”

Marc fumed “When the hell does race or religion play a card in what you do artistically? Do you think I have talent or not?”

He added “It’s socially significant music. And you’re going to tell me that Ricky Martin’s ‘She’s All I Ever Had’ is Latin music? And Jennifer Lopez’s ‘If You Had My Love’ is Latin music? Don’t be silly.”

The successful singer said “I was just going bonkers listening to people go ‘It’s the Latin explosion thing’.” While J.Lo and Ricky don’t seem to have a problem with it, Marc sighed “Everybody else was cool with it, saying, ‘It’s our time.’ Whose time is it? I was born in New York. It was always my time.”
