Instead Of Memorizing His Lyrics To ‘Despacito’ Justin Bieber Sang ‘Blah Blah Blah Burrito’ And People Were Pissed

In a video posted to Instagram yesterday, Justin Bieber appeared to bomb the #1 hit song “Despacito” at 1 Oak in New York City. Joined on stage by his buddies The Chainsmokers, Bieber took some time to shout them out before starting what appeared to be an improvised set of the smash hit song. The song, featuring Bieber on its remix, is currently the #1 song in both the U.S. and the U.K., so an improvised set of the song should be no problem, right? Well…

“Despacito” is a number one hit around the world. Justin Bieber definitely has it memorized, right? Wrong.

I Love itttt???❤?❤?❤?❤???❤

Apparently the Biebs only knows his English part of the song, handing the microphone off to anyone in the audience who will give it a shot. He shouts to someone whose name he clearly doesn’t know in the audience, “Headband, get over here and sing this!”

So, what happens to the rest of the song you say?

I'm dying????? @justinbieber #despacito #justinbieber

You know, the lyrics sung in the beautiful Spanish language we all love? Well, to JB that’s an easy fix, just cover it all in “blahs.” Bieber literally sings “blah-blah blah-blah” over the entire thing, only stopping to say “De – spa – cito.” It’s got to be pretty embarrassing that your hit song is #1 around the world and you can’t even sing it.

Then he got STRAIGHT UP disrespectful.

Embarrassingly, he sings, “Des-pa-cito. I don’t know the words so I say poquito. I don’t know the words so I say Dorito. I don’t know the words so I say mosquito.” He starts out pretty rough, then gets worse with the stereotypes. “Dabba dabba dabba dabba dabba burrito. I ate the burrito. I just want un poquito.”

And you *know* Twitter came for him.

But at the very least Kevin Hart knows some Spanish words.

Some users were rightfully upset.

“Don’t fetishize him speaking Spanish while PoCs are cussed out by Whites when PoCs speak Spanish.” Twitter user @anglleija wrote.

For some it was about respecting the language and culture.

Many feel Latinos are constantly being disrespected in the U.S.

The Biebs reminded some of Katy Perry singing in the Sims made up language, “Simlish.”

At leas this is a real language to someone.

We hope he’s learned his lesson and will be better prepared next time he’s on stage.

But something tells us, that might just be wishful thinking.

What did Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee think?

They probably laughed it off.

Fonsi has already taken his hat off to Bieber for wanting to sing in Spanish on the track.

Fonsi made it sound like Bieber really cared about the lyrics being in Spanish. So, maybe it was just an off night for him?

Either way, it may take some time for some Latinos to forget this one.

We’ve got our eyes on you, JB. ?

Salsa superstar Marc Anthony was set to have his global livestream concert “Una Noche” Saturday, April 17 at 8 p.m. EST. He was supposed to perform his greatest hits and fans were hyped about a Daddy Yankee cameo. However, the concert never happened on its initial date. Here’s what went down.

The livestream was supposed to start on Saturday, April 17 at 8 p.m. EST through the Maestro platform. 

The Maestro platform has in the past streamed events like the Fortnite World Cup, NBA, Coachella, and more live events.

At the time of the concert, it was estimated to have sold over 100,000 tickets starting at $25 each and fans from over 85 countries were going to watch the historic event. 

Marc Anthony posted on his Instagram that they were working through technical difficulties.

By 1 a.m. EST on Sunday that they finally pulled the plug and announced the cancellation. 

“Due to the overwhelming demand that caused a complete collapse of the streaming platform,” Anthony said in a statement. “I am deeply sorry for this technology failure that unfortunately was out of our control.”

Fans took to Twitter to share their reactions/memes to #MarcAnthonyUnaNoche.

Marc, being the class act that he is, posted a lengthy apology and assured fans that he would work on getting their refunds and that the people that waited so long to watch him in concert, will in fact get a chance to see the show.

To make it up to his fans, Anthony shared the original livestream for free on his YouTube channel for 24 hours.

For 24 hours, fans were able to watch the show from the original livestream. Anthony again reassured fans that their tickets would be refunded.

At last, Marc Anthony fans, we got our concert!

While the experience wasn’t as smooth as intentionally planned, Marc was a man of his word and the concert was a delight for many fans worldwide.

Thank you Marc for your commitment to your fans!
