Miguel is the latest cover star for Fault. The singer connects with the magazine for its twenty-third issue. Photographed by Lionel Deluy with styling by Jasmine Benjamin, Miguel dons relaxed suiting. Talking to the magazine about his album WildHeart, Miguel dishes on the song Hollywood Dreams, explaining how it “is a very personal song just because I’ve had friends who’ve been washed out. I grew up in San Pedro where you can’t see Hollywood but the moment you get out of the South Bay, you see like the hills and the mountain ranges and it’s kind of an aspirational thing.”
Miguel continues, “And I’ve seen people come out of the South Bay, which I would consider being ‘down the hill,’ move North and end up washed out because of the ‘scene’ and the way things move here. You can walk down Hollywood Boulevard and it’s like that still. The idea of being ‘discovered’ is there, it’s tangible. But then on that same street there’s homeless people. So Hollywood Dreams in that sense is a very personal song because it’s inspired by things I’ve seen. It’s also an introspective song about literally being in between. On being understood because of the way that I look and the way that I was raised.” Read more on Fault-Magazine.com.
