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. ?

Gina Rodriguez was recently featured in a story by the LA Times. Interviewer Yvonne Villarreal spoke with Rodriguez with her dog “Casper” in attendance. If you follow Rodriguez on social media you will have definitely seen the fluffy white puppy. Rodriguez discusses everything from her crush on the women of Broad City, meeting Brad Pitt and starring as everyone’s favorite childhood anti-hero, Carmen Sandiego in the upcoming Netflix animated series.

In a clip from her recent L.A. Times interview, Gina Rodriguez talked about her favorite show right now: Broad City.

Not only did she binge all three seasons, she also developed a major crush on the shows stars.

She also mentions a little nugget of information we weren’t expecting: what her first acting gig was.

It turns out, the AOL commercial lives on through the power of the internet. Watch until the end to see teenage Gina Rodriguez, tell you how safe being online is because people are “just like you.” Ah, to be naive again.

She talked about the stress of meeting Brad Pitt with a swollen hand backstage before her interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

You’ve got to hear the rest of the story. Keep in mind, her actual boyfriend, Joe LoCicero is in the room while she talks about being blown away by Pitt. Rodriguez and LoCicero must have real love, because Rodriguez was such a fan, she and Pitt took a prom-style picture together. I mean, can you blame her?

Rodriguez also brought her dog Casper along for the interview.

The two are inseparable, but at some point Casper gets tired of being in the limelight and walks off. Woof!

Check out the rest of the L.A. times interview below for an up close and personal look at the Boricua star.

The interview gets a little steamy when Rodriguez talks about her “Jane The Virgin” character getting in touch with her sexuality and coming to terms with feeling “horny,” which Gina says is great for the character.
