Los Angeles, Aug 18 (IANS/EFE) Argentine singer-songwriter Noel Schajris has confessed that he does not believe in conventional marriage or in promising eternal love, something that he says strikes him as “nice” and “romantic” but “unreal”.

The singer, who is currently promoting his latest album - “Grandes Canciones” - on which he interprets songs by Juan Luis Guerra, Ricky Martin, Ricardo Montaner, Franco De Vita and Eric Clapton, denied that he has any intention to marry Panamanian model Gwendolyn Stevenson.

“It’s not true. It was a rumour that cropped up, I don’t know why,” said Schajris, who after getting through a divorce denied that he’s interested in going to the altar again.

“I don’t see any sense in getting married, signing a piece of paper… I believe in love more than ever but marriage transforms it into an institution that strangles people more than it gives them the air they need. That fire needs air,” the Argentine told EFE.

Schajris compared his current situation with that of the character George Clooney played in the film “Up in the Air”, who spends almost more time in airplanes than on the ground due to a hectic travel schedule that complicates his relationships with his loved ones.

At 37, the artist said that he lets himself be guided in his decisions by what his heart tells him, a way of acting that led him in June to come out with “Grandes Canciones”, his second solo album after leaving the group Sin Banderas.
