According to the chronology of Miguel Bosé’s most relevant media appearances in recent years, the information peak occurred in 2021, when the singer released a video in which he was against vaccines to fight covid. Shortly after, in April, Jordi Évole interviewed her in Mexico, where she lived at the time.
That meeting, divided into two episodes that gave various headlines about his problems with drugs, his family and, of course, the pandemic, ended with the artist’s anger, as the communicator has recently recognized. In November of that same year, he published his autobiography, Captain Thunder’s Son (Planet), and now, hundreds of tabloid articles later, he opens his past in the Bosé series.
If you search the newspaper library, you will see that at the beginning of 2020 it was already made public that Ángeles González-Sinde, former Minister of Culture during the Zapatero government, and Boris Yzaguirre were working on the script for a series about the singer’s past, his romantic relationship with men and women throughout his life or his relationship with his parents. However, three years later and after several controversies -and for the majority also nonsense- the platform recently released in Spain SkyShowtime launches this fiction, with which its story takes on a new dimension and vindicates the relevance of the artist in the history of music. Spanish.
Miguel Bosé was born in Panama in 1956. He is the son of the actress and model Lucía Bosé, from whom he took his stage name, and bullfighter Luis Miguel Dominguintwo dominant and strong personalities, especially the father, who, however, never eclipsed the talent and artistic strength of the singer, one of the Spanish names, along with other performers such as Julio Iglesias or the members of Mecano, more popular on the other side of the Atlantic, as seen in the series that premieres this Friday, March 3.
bosebetween the soap opera and history
The series consists of six chapters that take as their title a song by the artist and starts during the promotion of his successful album Daddy, moment in which he made the decision to be a father. So, through flashbacksthe viewer has the opportunity to discover episodes unknown to some with whom he invites to discover chapters of his intimacy, while reflecting on some of the most far-reaching artistic decisions of his career.
The truth is that this series takes on a certain aroma of a soap opera at times, with situations and conversations that are of little importance to those who have a certain allergy to the gossip, but it is inevitable to pay attention because, without exaggerating, some essential personalities for both Spanish culture and television. Only in the first two chapters, as you have verified Vozpopulithe viewer will look at his sentimental relationship with the popular Ana Obregón -then a student about to finish Biology-, which she combined with her idyll with a young dancer and choreographer Nacho Duato, who later became director of the National Dance Company.
The most interesting thing about this series is the counterweight that his parents exercised in his life and Bosé’s ability to overcome the obstacles that were presented to him.
On a dramatic level, however, the most interesting thing about this series is the counterweight that his parents exercised in his life and Bosé’s ability to overcome the obstacles that were presented to him, until he achieved their acceptance and support, as reflected in his debut at the Florida Park room in Madridunder the watchful eye of Lucía Bosé and the severe Luis Miguel Dominguín, in 1977. “Connoisseurs in the world of entertainment say that there is a great figure here,” said José María Íñigo in the broadcast of that performance, the starting gun for a successful career, which also includes this series.
The physical resemblance of the actors -José Pastor in his youth and Iván Sánchez in his more mature age- with Miguel Bosé is obvious and helps to reconstruct the artist’s journey from innocence to the most bittersweet episodes of his life, but also to evoke on stage the strength of the artist who, as he recognized not so long ago, had lost his voice. If the rest of the episodes of this first season improve and offer something more than mere curiosity about the biography of the artistit is possible that even the viewer forgets the show so far from musical, so unfortunate and so embarrassing that he offered the world not so long ago.
