María del Rosario Pilar Martínez Molina Gutiérrez de los Perales Santa Ana Romanguera y de la Hinojosa Rasten -- aka Charo -- has been cracking up American audiences since she brought her trademark "cuchi-cuchi" to America more than 40 years ago. While most know her as an actress and comedienne who began appearing on The Today Show and Laugh-In in the '60s, she's also considered one of the world's greatest guitarists. In fact, she's twice been named "Best Flamenco Guitarist" in the world by reader polls in Guitar Player Magazine.
The sexy, spicy -- not to mention hilarious and charming -- Spanish performer just released her latest single called, what else?, "Sexy Sexy," and she's getting ready to share it with the boys at The White Party on April 10. We recently caught up with Charo to chat about the White Party, why she loves the gay community so much, her new single, and much, much more:
