The things you don’t do define you more than the things you do. I didn’t see Marion Cotillard play Joan of Arc, nor did I go to the Stones concert. Since I didn’t go, I didn’t even go to the beach, which is right here next to me. I am a mindundi. And a vague one too.
I didn’t go to Britney Spears’ wedding either. Of course I was not expected and not expected. They do: Donatella Versace, Paris Hilton, Madonna, Selena Gomez and Drew Barrymore appear there, surrounding the bride as they pose for the picture. All bosses. It is the new folkloric, that each era has its copla. And that so many divas hadn’t been seen together since Nati Mistral, Imperio Argentina, Rocío Jurado, Juanita Reina and María Vidal presented ‘Azabache’ at Expo 92, with those atomic cards and those total screen sunglasses, disproportionate and exaggerated like them.
From our discreet and dull everyday lives we have always been fascinated by the excess in others, especially in these hyperbolic women, so fierce, so thrown forward, so taking the world for a camel. But over time, we have come to find that they were less free than they seemed: as they moved away from the stage where they ruled, many were subjected to the yoke of an exploitative industry, a controlling father, an exploited couple or a patulea of brothers, cousins and other prisoners who needed to be fed. And they, the former wonder girls and the hard rocks of Chipiona (or wherever), endured carts and carts in exchange for fame, cheers and applause, backed by an audience that kept them going when they had no strength. I don’t know if it’s worth it. I hardly regret being a mindundi. The spotlight, towards their people.
