In an AP interview, Trevi talked about conservatives and her gay fans, "Conservatives criticize (gays) but then they wear the clothes they design, listen to the music that they have made so popular and use the makeup that they create."
At one point Trevi was the highest paid entertainer in Mexico, the pop/rock icon has been surrounded by controversy. In 2000, she, her manager Sergio Andrade, and backup singer Maria Raquenel Portillo were arrested and accused of abusing little girls.
Since prison, Trevi has maintained her innocence and her fans have maintained their loyalty. Her 2004 album, "Como nace el universo," or "How the Universe Was Born," went platinum in the U.S., selling more than 200,000 copies. Trevi also received a Latin Grammy Award nomination for Best Album.
