What a chaos!
(El Norte article - Oct. 2000)
The chaos took over the center of Los Angeles because of Chayanne.
By Alejandro Jasso/ El Norte.
Los Angeles, Estados Unidos- Chayanne had to remain "trapped" in a tunnel,
among cars for the shooting of the first single "Yo te amo", from his
last cd Simplemente. The budget for this video was: $250.000 with 12 actors,
50 extras, 25 cars, 3 vans, two police cars and two firemen trucks.
Chayanne himself chose the location for the video: the tunnel at 2nd Street
in Los Angeles.
"This city has magic", said Chayanne, after the shooting finished. The
song is produced by Estéfano and it will premiere in October. In this
vide, said the Puerto Rican singer, we try to show the love story between
himself and his girlfriend, played by Jennifer Robins.
By the time Chayanne is in the middle of the street, he walks along the
discovers different kinds of love; in a car he sees a an old couple, in
another one, a young couple, and in another one a bride, surely in her
way to get married. What is really sad for him is when he arrives to the
origin of the accident to realize that it´s his girlfriend who is dead
in the stretcher.
After his reaction, he looks around and discovers that actually he is
in a shooting; he gets happy and finds his girlfriend and. Well, you´ll
see what happened when the video comes out, although we don´t know when
that will be.
"The idea was to do something different, although it is a ballad, we wanted
to do a
romantic, dramatic and realistic video", said the director Simon Brand.
Chayanne looks athletic, but not too much. "Yes, I´ve been working out,
not to get bigger but to "define" my body, he said.
Chayanne will go to different cities to promote his new cd and he wants
to be in Mexico in December to support "the Teletón". "To help a little
bit to those who need it", he said.
Rejects Stallone, but not Ally and Friends.
Maybe many actors want to work with Sly, but not Chayanne. The singer
was offered a role to shoot along with this "big man", but he will be
working in the music world instead. But he doesn´t reject the cameras
at all of course, because he was in an episode of Ally McBeal and Friends.
"To play a role I should take some months off from music and right now
I don´t have that time", he said . The truth is that I didn´t quit acting,
I worked in Friends and Ally McBeal"
The days these episodes will be on air are not known.
