Jesus Luz talked to Brazilian TV show Fantástico about Madonna, his modeling career, and his boy toy status. I have translated excerpts from the interview broadcast last night after the jump.
Fantástico: Did you ever expect that your career would change overnight and that you would achieve such success?
Jesus Luz: I did believe that someday something would happen. I just had no idea of what it would be or how big it would be. Many people had told me to stop modeling and get a regular job.
F: How did you meet Madonna?
JL: We were introduced by photographer Steven Klein. I thought she was a wonderful person, full of positive energy.
F: Who is Jesus Luz?
JL: I am a pretty easy going guy. I was raised in Rio, I've always loved nature, the beach, and being in tune with my body and my health. I have always been very connected to my spiritual side as well, and have always been interested in different religions. I have been to the Evangelic Church, the Catholic Church, and practiced Yoga, in my search for God.
F: Jesus, now I have to ask you the question everyone wants to ask: are you and Madonna dating? Are you guys getting married?
JL: She is someone I truly admire, a friend who is in my life, who I have worked with, and who I keep in touch with. I can't say anything else besides that. She is a friend, and nothing but a friend.
F: The international press has been calling you Madonna's boy toy. Does that bother you?
JL: Actually I have never cared about what other people say about me because if I let people's negativity enter my life then I will not be able to stay focused and follow my path.
