It is a little past 5:15 a.m. and I am not sleepy. Have been watching YouTube Videos for a couple of hours. Mostly of Juan Gabriel and Marc Anthony duets.
I have to admit that the death of Juan Gabriel has hit me hard. The only other death in the celebrity world that has impacted me as much was when Princess Diana died. There were others that I recall exactly where I was when I heard of their passing such as John Lennon, Selena, Celia Cruz, Barry White, Jenny Rivera. Diana Summers and Emilio.
Wednesday, September 28th marked one month of his passing and Spanish speaking networks were trying to out do each other with exclusive coverage. I must admit that Univision beat all others with its exclusive interview with the unknown "love child" of Juan Gabriel.
I thought it was going to be a bunch of hog wash but only seconds into the interview you knew that was his biological son. You did not even have to wait for the birth certificate he produced, e-mails his father sent him and pictures with Juan Gabriel. It bears mentioning that he did not call the media...they found him and came calling to his door.
While I am deeply sadden by Juan Gabriel's passing, the appearance of this unknown up to now, biological son has made his fans very happy. There are a lot of us that questioned the hastily manner in which he was cremated. It all makes sense now after a forensic expert said that with his cremation it would be impossible to get a DNA sample. However, there were other forms of proving he was his biological son. I am sure Ivan Aguilera, the heir apparent, is not very happy about the up till now unknown existence of this son.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
