Merengue music icon Olga Tanon has endorsed statehood for Puerto Rico. See her Univision interview on Al Punto with Jorge Ramos below.
Tanon called for the status of Puerto Rico to be decided as soon as possible. “We are the only colony in the universe,” she said.
Asked whether she would prefer statehood, independence or Free Associated State, Talon replied, “With all the sincerity in the world, state 51.”
Tanon, a Grammy winning artist, was born in and grew up in Puerto Rico.
