“It has been an incredible journey. Dreaming my wildest dreams and then kind of watching them come through. Music, acting, performing — this career has always been an obsession for me. When people have said, ‘You’re doing too much, you can only do one thing,’ I was always a person who was like, ‘Why not?’ I kind of had to forge my own path and rules,” the star said.
She added, “It was through that unconditional love that my career and life became higher in every way, and I stand here better than ever. So thank you, Max and Emme.”
Rodriguez could be seen smiling from his seat with Max sitting on his lap while Emme sat next to her grandmother, Lupe. The musician couldn’t leave the stage without acknowledging her boyfriend.
“My life is sweeter and better with you in it because you make me realize that every day the sky is not the limit — the universe is infinite, and so is what we can accomplish together with love and trust and understanding. There’s so much more to do — to experience — and there is no one I’d rather do it with. You’re my macho baby and I love you,” the star honored her partner.
