Jesus Luz, who has been spending his time shopping for jewelry for Madonna as well as starting up a new career as a DJ, took time out of his bizzy schedule to give his first televised interview to the Brazilian TV show Fantástico wherein he talked about things as varied as his career, his ambitions and, of course, Madonna. Here are a few screencaps from his interview and a rundown of his interview:
Jesus Luz has spoken for the first time about his on/off lover Madonna, saying she is ‘beautiful’ and has ‘no visible faults’. In an interview with Brazilian television, the model heaped praise on the singer, but insisted they are just friends. He said: “Madonna is beautiful, a person full of positive energy, with no visible faults. I found her marvellous. Her personality also impressed me. She is a person I admire a lot, a friend in my life, who I remain in contact with. But apart from that I cannot say more.” He denied claims that the pair are set to tie the knot, insisting: “She’s my friend, only a friend. There are no wedding plans, no wedding presents, she’s just a friend, who I speak to frequently as I do with my friends in Rio de Janeiro,” he added, in his native Portuguese. Madonna, 50, met Jesus, 22, on the set of a W magazine shoot in Brazil last December. Despite rumours of a split earlier this year, the couple seem to be going strong and have increasingly been seen out and about in New York of late. In February he joined the singer and her three children David, three, Rocco, eight and Lourdes, 12, at a Kabbalah service in the city. And last week their wore similar cream outfits as they arrived for another Kabbalah ceremony in New York. The model’s father Luiz Heitor Pinto da Luz has hinted in an interview that they are preparing to exchange religious vows. He said: “My understanding is that this is just a consequence of what is happening. He is already living with her. I don’t know if there will be an actual wedding. From what I have read there could be a sort of ritual, but I don’t know Kabbalah… to know if it’s valid and legal.” And the rumours strengthened when Jesus was seen in a jewellery store in Rio. But the singer’s spokeswoman said the wedding rumours were “completely and totally not true.” In the TV interview Jesus also denied having been converted by Madonna, and said: “I used to go to Catholic church in Rio, and Evangelical churches, but I don’t have any special feelings for any specific religion, I respect all of them.”
As far as first interviews go, this one is pretty tame. Naturally he didn’t give away too much information and he did deny that anything romantic is going on between he and Madonna. I just don’t buy the friends thing. Why would Madonna want a 22 year old male friend? It makes no sense … but keep touting the party line, Jesus. It’s bound to keep you in her Madgesty‘s good graces. This interview is available for viewing in full online — but it is in Portuguese. After the jump, check out the video in full if you so desire …
I’m not sure what is up with his crazy eyes (a la Ramona from The Real Housewives of New Jersey) but they are very interesting. He’s deffo a pretty boy and it’s clear what Madonna sees in him. Who knows how long she’ll want to remain “friends” with him but I suspect she ain’t done with Jesus quite yet. He’s a DJ now, after all. I guess he really is coming up in the world.
