Orietta Berti confesses to having received proposals to pose without veils as a young man
Orietta Berti was relaunched thanks to the participation in the Sanremo Festival and now with the single Mille with Fedez and Achille Lauro that is depopulating. The song has been at the top of all the music charts for weeks and is a candidate to officially become the hit of summer 2021.
But that’s not all because for Orietta Berti there will also be an intense autumn with the participation of coach a The Voice Senior in place of Al Bano. In the course of various interviews, Berti is telling various anecdotes from her long career. Even in the last interview with The Corriere della Sera, Berti unveiled a curious proposal that was made to her and which she was never able to accept.
Orietta has always wanted to be a singer since she was a child. But his family did not live in favorable economic conditions for a career. Then the early death of his father further complicated everything.
“As a young man I missed my father who was 18 in an accident; we met me, the mother and the grandmother. These were not golden times. I wanted to be a singer but there were no means of today”- he confessed.
But gradually in the 60s the first appreciations began to arrive in the Italian music scene. Until the song As long as the boat goes had a stratospheric success and launched it definitively.
Since she was still a young girl when she achieved success, the women in her family were very protective of her and forced her to give up some interesting proposals.
“Playmen and Playboy asked me to pose naked. They offered me mind-boggling figures: but who would hear it later my mother and mother-in-law. When a magazine, in the 1970s, published a cartoon with a caricature of me on a boat next to a handsome lifeguard, my mother got angry with me. What do I have to do with it, if I don’t even know who drew it?”- he confessed.
