Favorite Quotes from Pitbull
“I always wanna be able to fight, I always wanna be able to go left when they tell me to go right, not because I’m being hard-headed, it’s just me taking a creative stance. I have no problem with constructive criticism, but, at the same time, I have a problem with doin’ the same thing that everybody’s doin’. And that’s the way I’ve found a way to survive in the music game.” – Pitbull
“Humor is everything. Everything. Usually, the negatives turned out to be the most positive for me. In the music industry, any other artist would have looked at the situation I was in and thought, “Oh man, this is not for me.” I looked at it more like Darwin exploring the Galápagos Islands. You know – survival of the fittest.” – Pitbull
“I think that the reason my records are able to live forever in the club is because I actually like to be in the club. I don’t go to the club to do VIP or get bottles or nothin’ – I go to the club, I enjoy the people, I see what the people are vibin’ off, and I see what makes me go crazy in the club also, and that has a lot of influence on what I bring to the table when I’m thinking of making a big club record.” – Pitbull
“As far as the fans, I always say it because it’s the truth: without them, I’m absolutely nothing.” – Pitbull
“Now, with the Internet, you’re either five years ahead or you’re five years behind, and the music game is catchin’ up right now.” – Pitbull
