He gets what it’s like when your parents don’t approve of your friends – which happens too often for some of us ?.

He totally nails what most of us yell [in Spanish] when we’re mad at bae.


“Bájame el tonito de voz!”

And the social media star always delivers his message in the most hilarious and LeJuan way, racking up thousands of views per video.

Trying to explain to your Non-Hispanic Friend why you can't go out. #tbt #TeamLeJuan

Tell me one Latino who hasn’t gone through this!

However, last night LeJuan posted a video unlike any other. He surprised a fan that is battling cancer, and it will break your heart and lift you up at the same time.

Everyone meet Jenny. She's a beautiful and strong woman who is currently battling #cancer. Her son Matthew reached out to me to see if I could possibly send his mother a video with some words of encouragement and positivity. His message was so heartwarming that as I was reading it brought me to tears. One line in particular stood out as he said "she watches your videos everyday she laughs like crazy and it keeps her spirits up and seeing her laugh like that in our situation means the world to me." I immediately knew I had to meet her. Today I had the pleasure of surprising her in her beautiful home along with my family. Jenny I admire your courage and faith. It was God's will that lead to us meeting you today. Those words you shared with me I will treasure them for a lifetime. Thank you for always supporting me. God Bless you and next time we meet will be celebrating your cancer free party ❤️ #TeamLeJuan

And he brought his family with him.

Here’s what he said about this emotional story:

Of Course Camila Cabello Would Create A Telenovela Inspired Music Video For ‘Havana’

Camila Cabello / YouTube

This is one steamy music video.

Camila Cabello has released her music video for “Havana” and it’s basically a short film filled with lots of twists and turns. The Cuban-Mexican pop star plays a nerdy, shy young woman named Karla who would much rather watch novelas with her abuela than go out on the town. But soon, something changes. Maybe it’s the constant teasing by her older sister. Maybe it’s the wise advice abuela gives her. Perhaps it’s the romantic movie she watches about Havana. By the end of the video, this little wallflower makes a major transformation.

“Havana” starts with a magnificent telenovela-style opening scene.

It’s filled with all the ridiculous plot twists and melodrama we’ve come to expect from novelas. There’s a love triangle, a surprise twin, and a proposal all in a matter of seconds.

We’re then introduced to a quiet, shy Karla, who is obsessed with the novela.

Karla’s obsession with novelas concerns her abuela… and annoys her sister. But she doesn’t care.

Abuela drops some major relationship advice on Karla.

“I know you’d rather be home but life isn’t going to come knocking on your door. You need to learn to start living your life.”

That’s when Karla goes off on her own and watches a movie.

That’s right. Karla’s idea of a fun night out on the town is to go to the movies alone. Of course, she chooses a romantic move about Havana.

Finally, Karla lets herself envision a world in which she is fun, carefree, and living.

Get it, girl. You better live, honey.

And, yes, you’ll get to see Cabello dance because it is a Cuban-themed movie.

If you would like to see the rest of the movie, make sure you check out the video.

Young Thug is the one singing while Cabello’s movie character tears up the dance floor with a sexy stranger.

Karla’s older sister, played by Lele Pons, is proud to see Karla come out of her shell.

Isn’t it so adorable when you watch them grow up before your eyes?

LeJuan James really knows how to bring an abuela character to life.

You guessed it, she pulls out the chancla on Karla and her sister.

Her love interest is played by Noah Centineo.

Watch the end of the video to see how this love story wraps up.

If you watch until the very end, you’ll see an end card that reads: “This is dedicated to the Dreamers.” Cabello recently pledged all proceeds from the song to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), but it’s not confirmed if that’s the point of the shout out. Cabello said she chose to make that donation to the ACLU due to their work with undocumented youth.

Rare: This Latina Mom Is Proud Of Her Son Who Isn’t A Doctor

NBC Latino / Facebook

No one makes us laugh more about our dear Latina moms than Lejuan James.

As part of our series “One Heritage, Two Generations” for Hispanic Heritage Month, the social media star and his mami Ingrid talk about their strong relationship and their Latino heritage, which is a source of pride — and many laughs.

His mom is just like every Latino mom ever.

We have all seen Lejuan James’ genius Instagram, Vine and Twitter posts about what it truly means to grow up in a Latino household. The videos usually show the main character of all of our lives: mami. James’ mom totally owns and embodies the role of mami, whether she is chasing him though the house with a chancla or telling him not to cry when she dies because he wouldn’t help her with the groceries.

NBC Latino was able to get James to sit down with his mom and talk about the videos. The interview is everything. Get ready to feel all the feels. James credits his mom for all the inspiration for the videos he has created and the character he plays. During the interview, they talk about how she knows just what to say to make him feel guilty with just one sentence. It is clear to see from the video that James’ mom is so proud of her baby boy for doing what he loves and excelling in it. Bravo, dude! Now go call your mother. She would love to hear from you.
