Her Own Music Career
Angie Martinez: "Me being on the radio has just become a part of who I am. It’s not even my job anymore, it’s just who I am. There’s other things I like to do on the side, I had an opportunity to make music for a little while, that was fun. I might not have been the greatest artist in the world but I traveled the world, I learned, I got that off. It was fun and I don’t regret it at all.
I cringe sometimes when I hear some of those songs, I really can’t. I don’t want to disrespect the producers or anybody else but it’s like looking at an old high school picture of yourself.
"I cringe sometimes when I hear some of those songs, I really can’t. I don’t want to disrespect the producers or anybody else but it’s like looking at an old high school picture of yourself, you’re like, ‘Oh, there’s that picture again,’ or ‘There I am in that outfit or saying that stupid thing again.’ It’s that type of thing. I don’t think I’d go back to making music, that was an experience I had and it was great but it wasn’t a natural state.
"You know how with musicians and artists, it’s a natural state? It was natural for me to be on the radio but that just wasn’t for me, it was an experience, I was creative in it. Never say never but it wasn’t easy, it didn’t come second nature. It was fun and it was cool and now, on to the next thing. I did a couple movies, had some television opportunities."
