2NE1 members expressed their respect for the ‘king of pop,’ Stevie Wonder.
2NE1 had an interview on November 25 at a restaurant in Seoul about performing at the 2013 Mnet Asian Music Awards (2013 MAMA).
“We found out that we were performing Missing You at 2013 MAMA only three days before the show. We didn’t have enough time to prepare, so we have a lot of regretsabout our performance. I think the same was true for the PD who worked with us,” said 2NE1.
During 2013 MAMA 2NE1’s CL earned a lot of spotlight for performing with Icona Pop. She appeared in the middle of the stage to join Icona Pop with her rapping skills, showing her charisma off to fans.
The members also got the opportunity to chat with Stevie Wonder, who put on duet performance with Sistar’s Hyolyn at 2013 MAMA.
“We got to spend time talking with Stevie Wonder about music. I′ve always liked and respected his music and was really glad to hear some advice from him. I realized that music is meant to spread love, but we’ve been using music for a bit different purposes until now. It gave me a chance to reflect on myself as a singer,” said CL.
“He really has a big heart and tries to embrace the world with different perspective. After meeting him, I thought that, even though having a boyfriend and dating is important too, we need to use music for higher purposes. I think music can bring people together in oneness, and that’s what I want to do as an artist,” said the inspired member of 2NE1.
Meanwhile, 2NE1 plans to hold another world tour soon, going around cities in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Japan and more.
