Ricky Martin's Songwriter/Producer Reacts Angrily to Inaugural Performance Of His Song.

'This is a Betrayal of Everything That Every Puerto Rican Should Stand For,'

Says Robi Draco Rosa

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ --

"Singing 'The Cup of Life' at George Bush's inauguration is like playing the fiddle while Rome burns," said an angry Robi Draco Rosa who wrote the hit song and numerous other tracks for Martin, including the breakthrough smash "Livin' La Vida Loca".


"This is a very partisan act. This is a President who would have people in his cabinet who would obstruct the exercise of civil rights, human rights, consumer rights, the right to choose, the right to be free of gun violence and the right to a clean environment. This is a betrayal of everything that every Puerto Rican should stand for."

Robi Draco Rosa has received four Grammy nominations for his work as producer and songwriter for Ricky Martin. Spin Magazine named his last solo album one of the "Top 10 greatest rock en espanol records of all time", and Entertainment Weekly recently described him as a "Che Guevara-meets-Trent Reznor poet-punk."
