I hope to be in a more direct contact and resembling my social networks,” she stressed.

“I feel like it’s a show that doesn’t take itself seriously, but it’s not super light either. It’s a “mood” that we like to have in the summer and it fits with my personality. You can have fun and be more serious, there is freedom and authenticity in Sweety salty which seduces me! »
