“I am ashamed to mention something about Brazil, because it is crazy. My family is there, I have a brother and a sister. All my friends, people who work with me. I am an immigrant, but Brazil is my country, no matter where I live. “

The musician made reference to the resignation of two health ministers in the last month due to differences with Bolsonaro.

“We have a crazy president and the health minister has just resigned, the second in a month,” continued the 47-year-old musician. “We have two guys out there just because the president disagrees with them because they are too interested in science. But that is another topic. It just doesn’t make sense, “he concluded.
