- Culture Miguel Bosé: "In recent years I could not move forward, I was burdened"
Perhaps, listening to the story of Miguel Bosé last night in El Hormiguero, many of the artist's things are understood. Or, perhaps, you have to watch his documentary (Movistar Plus +). Or, perhaps, you have to let him talk, you have to catch him wanting to do it and you have to give him a whole program. "The program is completely gone, but there is nothing that entertains more than a good conversation," was the phrase with which Pablo Motos closed El Hormiguero last night. There is nothing more to add.
Sure enough, the ladder went to waste, there was no time for science, or for ants or anything. Miguel Bosé monopolized every second of the program. Miguel Bosé came wanting to talk, to tell, to let go. Maybe he felt guilty for not being able to go to El Hormiguero two weeks ago because "I got very sick." Or, simply, it is, as he also said, that now that he has decided to release ballast, he is going to release everything. He is right, years of silence and now suddenly the backpack is left without a single stone. Miguel Bosé is throwing them all away.
After apologizing for not attending the program, Pablo Motos wanted to start and at the same time close for the last event in the life of Miguel Bosé. It can not surprise anyone that the artist's life deserves books, series and documentaries. Miguel Bosé recounted in great detail and to some extent with a peculiar humor as a shield the assault he suffered in his house a month ago.
A group of hooded men entered his house at night when he, his children and the service were sleeping to steal everything they could. First of all, Miguel Bosé is not going to leave Mexico, so "enough of hoaxes", and from here this is the story.
The surreal assault on Miguel Bosé's house
Miguel Bosé slept. Her children were in another part of the house making a video call to a friend. "Suddenly someone wakes me up and I see faces that I don't recognize and they point a gun at me. You are lost. I saw my children at the bedside surrounded by these people armed to the teeth. They said they were professionals but they weren't because they tied us with the ties of my sneakers. From the outset a professional gets into your house, throws you a spray and takes what he wants. Real professionals don't even face each other," Miguel Bosé began before the astonished look of Pablo Motos.
There was no physical violence at any time, at least, towards Miguel Bosé and his family, but there was violence between them, because, according to the artist, "they had taken something". He said that he was very calm, so calm that when the robbers wanted to separate Miguel Bosé from his children and the service and take each one to the room, it was Miguel Bosé who negotiated with them. "The boys if you separate them are going to get nervous," he told them. "I advise you," he sends his nose, "to put them in a room with the lady of the house and I will take you around the house so that you can take what you want." Thus, they took their children to a dressing room, tied them up, covered them and "there they endured more than two and a half hours."
"At one point the boss looks at me, looks at the others and says 'guys this is Miguel Bosé'. He takes off his mask and tells me 'I'm your fan'. And I told him: 'let's take things in the right direction or the concerts are over,'" Miguel Bosé continued. Surreal, but what part of Miguel Bosé's life is not. "And you hear a voice behind you a selfie, a selfie. At that moment I had the feeling that nothing was going to happen. And then I saw my children come in and there was no fear in their eyes. Then Dieguito, who is a fan of guns, told me all the brands of silencers, weapons. This generation is going to save us," he continued.
They took everything they could, what they caught. Lots of money. And despite the horror, because no matter how much humor Miguel Bosé wanted to put last night was "horrible", the artist wanted to thank them because "they took some horrendous gifts" that some Californian friends always make him. Miguel Bosé, in all his essence.
"An experience to forget as soon as possible. Terrifying, horrible, but thank goodness nothing happened to us. And I'm in the short of giving everything and the last thing I had not delivered were material things and now not even that. " Indeed, Miguel Bosé is giving everything, opening the Pandora's box of a life that, as Pablo Motos said after discovering it in the documentary, had "impacted" him and touched him. Because in the same way that he recounted last night in El Hormiguero the assault on his house, he tells in the documentary, produced by Shine Iberia, the same producer of his series, a life from which he came out alive nor does he himself know how or why.
Anyone who saw Miguel Bosé last night and saw the documentary knows that he did not tell anything that is not told in it. Whoever has not seen it will be as touched as Pablo Motos was. "When I saw the documentary I was touched. When I finished it I had a feeling of admiration because I don't want to think about what you had gone through," Motos said. And that last night only counted half of half of what is exposed in the documentary.
How could Miguel Bosé survive?
"They were two huge egos. Two personalities with a narcissistic disorder. Every morning when you woke up it was to see how I survive them both, "said Miguel Bosé when Pablo Motos asked him about his parents, the bullfighter, Luis Miguel Dominguín, and the movie star, muse of artists, Lucía Bosé. Indeed, listening to everything he revealed last night, the question is this: how could he survive?
If it hadn't been for the famous tata, Miguel Bosé doesn't even know if he would be alive. She, she said, was the only one with reason in that house, the only one capable of confronting those two egos. Until such an unto that one night in which the bullfighter arrived drunk, he released a good gauntlet and told him without half measures and no matter how Luis Miguel Dominguín was: "Thus, in front of his children he does not enter".
The incredible thing is that no one could have ever imagined that Miguel Bosé, the firstborn of Dominguín and Lucía Bosé could have spent the childhood and adolescence he spent. So much so that he could even die because of the negligence and neglect of his father who took him on a safari in Africa and refused to give him the pills to prevent malaria because he said they were "". "Dr. Tamames told him, 'I'll continue to admire you as a bullfighter but as a person you're shit.'" Well, that's it. It was the straw that broke the camel's back. A year later the marriage separated and no, it was not a quiet separation, and no, nobody thought about those children more than the tata.
"There is another trauma that is a New Year's Eve when your mother puts you in a car and takes you to the farm where your father and several of his friends are with their darlings. Your father's was his first cousin," Pablo Motos intervened to continue with the life of misfortune.
"Yes. We got there and stayed in the car. My mother came in and we heard screaming, broken glass... After a while my father came out dragging my mother with one arm and I go out to defend her and he pushes me away. It was the first time I defended my mother. And then my mother asked for a divorce," Bosé said. There, in Villa Paz, Miguel Bosé discovered "that happy childhood", but also the tragedy: "In the end we left and I turned around to say goodbye to the house and I see that the tower of the house is burning". "Who do you think turned it on?" asked Motos. "You don't know. There are suspicions. And I knew I would never go back to that house again and that my childhood had burned down."
After the divorce, Lucía Bosé stays with the house of Somosaguas, Miguel Bosé does not see his father again until much later and the family knows the hardships, not having heating, hot water, or almost food. "He gave us 30,000 pesetas," the artist revealed. "They were very ugly years, but the tata had a lot of joy and said these are things in life that you have to learn from."
The rest of the story is already known to an entire generation. Miguel Bosé becomes hyper-famous overnight after his performance in La Florida. He stops being Miguelito, the son of, and becomes Miguel Bosé. Drugs come, because "I liked them", the hoaxes about his death, about AIDS, about so many things. Years of grudges. "You get used to everything. Before I started doing these projects I knew that I had solved these things and that there was no rancor or bitterness," he said.
True, in his interview with Pablo Motos there is no resentment, no hatred or revenge, there is a kind of catharsis that he has managed to tell everything without further ado. Maybe he wants to be understood, maybe he wants us all to be touched, maybe he will never be understood or understood a little. An extraordinary life, even insane, a life that last night left Pablo Motos speechless.
Since he was a father, Miguel Bosé has known what love is, true love. "We are here to know what love and with love progress and make us better. And love is not as strong as love for children and for children. You go from saying I would kill to saying I would die for."
