The man boasted a car collection that was the envy of the politikeros.

Antonio Peter de la Rosa is a worthless, good for nothing scumbag, MoFo tiguere who is really a nobody and one day just lucked out with a catchy tune. His pea brain does not understand fame is ephemeral, (I doubt he can understand the word) and like all those short lived mediocre entertainers, they may be on top one day, but most eventually, end-up and always hit bottom. When their money and popularity runs out, they have to lick their wounds and go back to where they came from and take a crap "en la letrina" like everybody else who at one time thought their shit don't stink.

@Baxter-

Yeah, you dont need to know the meaning, but can you at least sing a little bit, beat up on reporters and your girl friend? If the answer to all the above is YES then you might have an ephemeral future in entertainment. Only one word of advice, save your money for a rainy day and yes and dont forget your shit does stink.
