For those of you acquainted with Gloria Trevi's discography, the first time you hear her new album Una rosa blu will be a bit of a shock. You won't hear the same heart-wrenching Trevi lyrics that once confessed the woes of lonliness and disillusionment.

Instead, on the 39-year-old singer's second studio album since getting out of jail (acquitted on all charges) you'll hear a more peaceful voice, positive lyrics and instrumentation not found on her earlier discs. Maybe she's finally giving in to happiness after all the scandals and rumors that once took over her life.

That's how Trevi seems during the interview. She sounds content, satisfied…but that doesn't mean the singer feels like she's gotten her life back since being the object of intense public scrutiny.

“I feel like life owes me a lot…In the 80 years that I have left, I still won't get everything back,” she says without hesitation.

But Trevi always does everything she can to leave the past behind, including not wanting to talk about the past anymore. Still, there are always people trying to push her buttons, like Judith Chávez {Ga-bí}, Sergio Andrade's ex, who a few weeks ago said that Trevi's daughter, Ana Dalai, was alive, an alarming statement that sent the singer's mother, Gloria Ruiz, to the hospital.

“I have an on/off switch. Negative comments from people who know me, like my mother, children, boyfriend or the people I work with, would hurt me. But when I hear something like that, I put my switch on ‘off' and shut down. When it comes from people I don't even know, it doesn't make sense. And if it's someone who claims to know me and just wants money, I don't worry about that either.”

Her album, Una rosa blu (A Blue Rose), is her seventh studio attempt. The song “Todos me miran,” from the album Trayectoria (Trajectory), in a sense reinvented the singer and became one of the most popular tracks of her career. Her first single “Psicofonía” follows the similar dance style of “Todos me miran,” but the rest of the album – which must be called Blu and not Blue for some out-there Trevi reason – is completely different.

“I wanted the disc to be called that because I identified with the song a lot. It made me cry, I found a lot of positive things in myself because I want the world to see the ‘blue roses' like I see them. A blue rose is a child with different abilities, it's a child who wasn't born but makes a woman a mother in every way. Even though the child hasn't been born, even though it hasn't lived, that it lives inside you changes your life,” she explains with a nostalgic tone.
