Priscilla leaves the Bible and comments on the Bolsonarist hate

In general, she resists pain well, but this time she admits that she did not. He asked for an anesthetic ointment to tattoo a word on the inside of his lips: “Love.”

You’ve lost the number of tattoos you have. The new song she made on the eve of the release of her new song “Você Aprendiu a Amar?” , a duet with Emicida, composed by a duet with Lucas Silveira, from the band Fresno. It was the opposite: It took an epidemic for the 26-year-old artist from São Paulo to feel less numb with what was going on around her.

He came at a frenetic pace with a successful career in gospel music, until he took a hit from the Covid-19 crisis. “Then everyone’s world stopped. I looked around and saw a lot of terrible things. Where were you with my neighbor when all this was happening to him?”

Priscilla, who is an evangelical, says she has become interested in social issues. He faced his “hypocrisy” because he said he feared God, “but was always in a hurry, perhaps blinded by religion.”

In May 2020, American and Brazilian police killed George Floyd and Joao Pedro. That’s when the songwriter wrote lyrics that cited victims of police violence and attacked a Christian who does nothing in the face of similar injustices.

They are verses such as “The Contradiction of Faith / Who says ‘God is love’ / And this God hides / In the name of fear”, and “I have seen many people / Who claimed to know how to heal / Go straight through / For those who only felt pain”. She says the biggest criticism of the song is herself. However, many people saw hints from fellow Christians there, especially those sitting at the head of evangelical authority. “That’s the case, if the cap fits…”

Popular with Bolsonaro’s youth, Chancellor Nicolas Ferreira, of Belo Horizonte BL, of the same age and religion as Priscilla, that’s all they have in common. He retweeted a photo of “love” she had written inside her mouth on a social network and saved the drawing next to the anus that the great name of national pop had drawn. “It’s clear that Anita is not the only one who gets tattoos where the shit comes out,” he added.

Priscilla says she prefers “not to waste energy” on Nicholas and those who endorse these “anti-Christian words”. “These are meaningless things in my head. It is impossible to understand how there is logic in a loving God, but with hateful words.”

It wasn’t just the transition from the gospel scene to the narrow pop scene that angered a fair share of the gospel segment who came to see her as a lost sheep. She also upset Priscilla that she called the opinion of Bruna Carla, a gospel singer who bragged about turning down an invitation to an LGBT friend’s wedding, as “rotten” because she considers gays “on the path to eternal death.”

Priscilla has a clear political position and thinks it’s a good thing. “People know that I hate this government, that I will not vote for Bolsonaro.” He sympathizes with Marina Silva, the former presidential candidate who should run for federal vice presidency in 2022, but believes that in an election as polarized as the current one, something more is on the agenda. Lola wink.

She even announced, months ago, that she would never sing Liberdade again, a hit of her gospel development. Reason: Bolsonaro used it as a track in a post. The composer commented below on a transcript from the Presidential Values ​​Administration: “Guys, what did I do wrong to deserve this?”.

For her, “it is inherent in the artist to be a voice,” and here she recalls Leonardo Gonçalves, a left-wing evangelical singer who continues the gospel. But he also remembers Anita.

A favorite of Priscilla’s is “Art and the Bible,” in which theologian Francis Schaeffer encourages Christians to worship God through art. “He said that, within society, the artist is the person most likely to change the worldview. That’s right, look at Anita’s cultural power. We’re talking about making heads.”

But she does not like ready-made stickers. “Jesus is my pillar, my family is my pillar. At the end of the day, I don’t stop and think: Was I a progressive Christian today? I just want to know if I’m consistent with my faith.”

Priscilla has miles in the artistic community, religious or not. He attended the Adventist Church of Itapeserica da Serra, in greater São Paulo, with his family when he participated in the SBT music competition under Celso Portioli. Rogue and Inessa Camargo sang.

Priscilla refutes Bruna Carla: It does not reflect the God I believe in

Silvio Santos agreed and appointed the girl in charge of the morning show Bom Dia e Cia, along with Maisa and Yudi Tamashiro. Priscilla was sometimes scolded by her boss, who might get into trouble with clothes that showed her stomach.

As a child, when he appeared in children’s evangelical music, he encountered the inflexibility of some evangelical brothers. “At eight, I had my first beef with church,” he says with a laugh. “It got to the point where I had to choose between singing on TV or staying in church. My family and I were kind of dealing with the wall by priests.”

It was not a difficult choice. “My parents said to me: You have this dream, and you fulfill it, and the church has many. I chose my dream. I knew God was with me in it, and that I would find another church.”

Priscilla has gone through cults such as Paula de Neve and Renaissance M. Cristo. Today it is in a smaller church. She also loves the idea of ​​Christian cells, like the ones her friend Bruna Marquezine is promoting at home. At these home meetings, they discuss “free faith style” or with the help of a guest pastor. “It’s very difficult to find a church where people and common people feel comfortable,” he says. “Sometimes they watch too much, there’s a nuisance.”

Priscilla Alcantara quits music because of Bolsonaro

Priscilla steps into new territory. Not only had he sung for more than two years, because of the pandemic, but also because of the transition he went through, from gospel to secular pop—which he did with encouragement from Isa and Gloria Grove, friends of this new scene.

The fast ended on the fifth, when his new show debuted in Salvador, which will arrive on Friday (12) in São Paulo. It passes through Porto Alegre on Saturday (13) in the house of Obinau; Belo Horizonte at 20, in area area; And on October 1st in Vivo Rio. On September 11, veteran Marsha Barra Jesus debuted at Rock in Rio.

She knows she owes a lot of this stage to The Masked Singer Brasil, Globo’s real-life music that made celebrities sing in costumes, so no one knew who they were. The rhinoceros, Priscilla’s secret identity, won in 2021.

She found a “great metaphor” for what she had always dreamed of, “that only my voice would recognize her”, without previous signs: Look at the believer here! Or look at the perverted believer! Her goal is to be the greatest soloist Brazil has ever seen. “When you think of sound, I want you to think of me.”

And that your faith does not dictate which artistic directions you should take. “I want people to realize that it’s okay, you don’t have to give up your faith and singing another song is not synonymous with lack of faith. There is no sweeter word, but that’s a stupid idea.”
