Defeat El Cucuy

When Mexican parents want to scare their kids straight, one of the old standbys is El Cucuy, a mysterious, evil boogeyman that is always ready to “get you” if you misbehave. During Eddie G!’s childhood, El Cucuy lurked around every corner, waiting for him to catch him in a “travesura.” Then Eddie G! found out it was all made up. Lame.

After whirlwind red carpets, Rodriguez needs to exercise her soul. She told Interview, “I enjoy vanity like the best of them. But I can’t stick to any of that lifestyle for too long because, when its true colors come out, it’s empty and cold and soulless. So I have to travel and go find some real people. After Cannes every year, I end up going to some foreign country I’ve never been to before and introducing myself to a new religion—I’ll go to Bali and research Hinduism, or I’ll go to Thailand and get another tattoo from [Thai tattoo artist] Ajarn Noo [Kanpai].”

Ain’t no easy task to get to the top. Rodriguez works hard to get there. “You know, if you don’t prepare and you don’t train and you don’t put your mind into what you’re doing, then you should get out of the business. Then it’s not worth it.”

She Moves to the Music
