Singer shared an open letter he wrote to his girlfriend, praising the singer’s new work and criticizing the machismo she often suffers
The singer vitão shared, at dawn this Sunday, 13, a letter they wrote to his girlfriend, the singer Luisa Sonza, in celebration of Valentine’s Day. Luisa is about to release a new album, but shortly before the date previously scheduled, she had to move away from social media to take care of her health after being targeted again by attacks on the internet. Some netizens blame Luisa for the death of Maria Lina’s son with the comedian Whindersson Nunes, Luisa’s ex-husband. The baby, named João Miguel, was born prematurely on May 29 and didn’t resist. In the statement published on Vitão’s Instagram profile, the singer criticizes the machismo with which Luisa Sonza is treated on the internet.
“When we launched Flores, exactly a year ago, we saw the world come crashing down on us, just one more time for you, but for me [foi] the first. I saw up close the internet court massacre being done to a woman I already admired and loved. The 900,000 low-level comments and 5.5 million dislikes [no vídeo] they were proof for all of us Brazilians that we have a lot to learn and grow”, says an excerpt of the letter. “They never could stand to see a woman grow so much in such a short time, sing so well, be so smart, and successful in every way. Just as they couldn’t stand to see you end a relationship and get on with life, fall in love again, live like any human being who only seeks happiness”, continues Vitão.
The singer also recounts the reprisals he suffers just for being Luisa Sonza’s boyfriend. Some fans believe that Luisa betrayed Whindersson with Vitão, which was never confirmed by any of the three, on the contrary. In May, Whindersson denied that the relationship between him and Luisa was ended due to her betrayal. “I saw my work decline, part of my audience turned against me, people from all over Brazil calling me pejorative nicknames and replicating lies over my name. I got a taste of what you’ve been living for a long time,” says Vitão. He also praises his girlfriend’s new job and says that she takes him out of his comfort zone “as a man in this society that has even become a cliché to describe him as sexist.” He ends the letter by thanking her for their relationship and saying how happy he is to have every detail of her written in his songs.
