Menudo is back! The super-popular Latin boy band gets a revamp thanks to reality TV. New Menudo member Carlos Olivero took some time out of his hectic schedule to talk to Kidzworld.


Sindy: Tell me about how you started as a performer. What are your first memories of singing or dancing?

Carlos: I started when I was too young to remember. I remember doing a talent show when I was in Pre-K singing Elvis in front of the whole school.


Sindy: Who were some entertainers you looked up to when you were first getting into the business?

Carlos: Anybody who was talented and had the same passion as me for what I do.


Sindy: Menudo has such a great legacy and history behind it. Does that put a lot of pressure on you?

Carlos: No, not really. Honestly I don't think about it that way. I am confident in who we are and what we do.


Sindy: What do you think is your biggest strength as a performer? What do you have to work on?

Carlos: Hmm. Well, I have a lot of energy and I get really into it on stage, and the crowd loves that. And there is always room to work on everything to become better.


Sindy: What are your favorite songs to perform?

Carlos: I would have to say Midnight and Lost.


Sindy: Why is dance more popular with younger people now, maybe more than ever before?

Carlos: Times change and so does music. I think the bar has been raised a lot higher than before, and therefore people want to see both.


Sindy: Who would you love to work with in the future?

Carlos: Chris Brown. I am a big fan of his music.


Sindy: You guys were chosen as part of a reality show. How has reality TV like American Idol changed the music scene?

Carlos: I feel that reality shows are good to a certain extent because it gives people the chance to actually bring their talents to the table and try their luck, rather than getting turned down from a record deal at first look.


Sindy: What was that competitive experience like?

Carlos: Scary because none of us knew who would make it. To me, making this group was the only thing I wanted, nothing else came close.

    Depends, for example if you look at Miley's Wrecking Ball, most people would only watch the video for her inappropriate movements, not the song itself. (Not trying to offend anyone who likes that song for a different reason. ;) ) Lyrics can mean so many different things these days....
