Grammy Award winning artist Miguel covers the latest issue of Wonderland magazine. As he continues to promote his critically acclaimed third studio album ‘Wildheart’, the R&B star discusses his artistic growth, sex symbol status and his musical objectives.
“Both my music and my performance have evolved. I think there is a kookiness to who I am that I don’t care to filter out anymore,” said Miguel. “When you’re live there’s no, ‘wait’, ‘delete’ or being too cool. I always want to push myself to the end of my breath. Can I still sing in key, all the times jumping up and down”?

On his sex symbol status:
“You know, it’s a compliment, it’s cool. I’ll take it, but, I’m two sides of a coin. I’m really goofy. I mean I’m so goofy. I can be slick, but really, really goofy.”
On his musical objectives:
“I’ve got something to offer those kids. I want to promote dreaming and doing something against the tide…When you realise that ‘normal’ is subjective, you just think, ‘I’m going to do what the fuck I believe in and what the fuck I want’…I want to touch people that love music like I do and I want to touch people who are into music more conventionally. I want to be part of popular culture and I want to reach people who are intellectual.”
