The opportunity for the singer to give her opinion on the new promo. “There are candidates who weren’t even born when I participated in the first Star Ac’, it’s a little weird”, she first confided. According to her words, what differentiates her from this season is the experience of reality TV. “Season 1 was in 2001. We were much more amateur since there hadn’t been all these TV hooks, there was nothing yet”, she said before adding “I wasn’t into this thing thinking, ‘How am I going to behave?’ To ask me questions.” Today, many reality TV programs have been broadcast for several years and the candidates therefore know the codes to get noticed.
