Camila Cabello’s Performance At The Grammys Made Everyone Cry As They Remembered Kobe Bryant And His Daughter

The 62nd annual Grammy Awards was filled with tributes to Kobe Bryant after his tragic and shocking death in a helicopter crash with his daughter in Calabasas. Artists included tributes to the basketball legend in their performances last night but one performance made everyone think about the father and daughter who died.

Camila Cabello sang her new single “First Man” about the love between and father and daughter and things became very emotional.

Cabello’s song “Frist Man” is a song dedicated to the love between a daughter and father. A special love that cannot be explained to those who have not experienced it. It is a bond filled with trust, safety, protection, and appreciation.

Cabello sang the song to her father, who was sitting in the front row, and he could not contain his emotions.

Latino fathers aren’t known for their public display of emotions. It isn’t because they don’t feel the emotions but it is just a common thing for Latino dads to stay stoic and strong. Seeing Cabello’s father crying while his daughter sings to him is a touching moment.

Her performance was bringing social media users to tears.

You can see the emotions in Cabello’s eyes as she sang her sweet song dedicated to the love and sacrifices of her dad. It is a special reminder that our parents have done so much to get us to where we are.

The song had a special meaning since it was the same day that Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant died in a helicopter crash.

On the morning of Jan. 26, 2020, before the Grammys, news broke that Kobe Bryant died when a helicopter crashed in Calabasas. The entertainment world was shocked when TMZ reported the crash. Bryant, who was 41, played for the L.A. Lakers for 20 years. His daughter was following in his footsteps and was part of the basketball community. In their rush to report the story, TMZ reported Bryant’s death before the family could be notified.

A mixture of the days’ events and the connection between fathers and daughters led to an emotional reaction from fans.

There was a lot of build-up to the performance. Many speculated, based on the kind of hype the performance was getting, that Cabello might be singing a special song to Shawn Mendes. Mendes and Cabello fans are not-so-secretly hoping for the pair to become a couple.

Even parents felt the love in the song.

Who couldn’t text their parents or children after seeing this performance? The love between a child and their parent is something special. It is an unconditional love that comes with heartbreak when the child moves away. It is a bittersweet relationship filled with so many ups and downs but it is beautiful in its longevity.

The performance really hit home for some viewers who recently lost their own parents.

The loss of a parent is a hard moment in anyone’s life. They are the person who knows you best and has known you your entire life. Losing that kind of connection is tough and painful but a part of life.

So, take some time and call your parents today. They want to hear from you.

6 Problematic Celebrities That Surprised Everyone With Their Intolerant Beliefs This Year

These Celebrities Said Some Problematic Things This Year And Surprised Everyone: A Roundup Of The Most Problematic Moments

Even as a celebrity, there are consequences for saying or doing offensive things. Careers have been destroyed by one poorly thought out tweet or a bad Halloween costume choice. Celebrities have been saying offensive and controversial things for a long time and no one batted an eye, only because no one called them out for it. With Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat, it’s now easier to find and collect receipts of people sharing their problematic views publicly.

We rounded up the most problematic celebrity moments of the year.

There are some obviously racist, misogynistic, gender-biased, and homophobic celebrities out there who are so offensive that it’s pretty much what they’re known for (aka. Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Azealia Banks, Paula Deen, Kylie Jenner, etc.). But these ones here surprised us this year with their highly problematic and insensitive moments.  All of these stars said or did some pretty controversial things that you should definitely know about. Read on:

Gina Rodriguez 

“Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez found herself facing a social media backlash in October, after she posted an Instagram story in which she used the n-word. Rodriguez has since deleted the video and apologized in a follow-up Instagram story, which many dismissed as insincere. That story, which remains live on her profile, was followed by a second, more emotional apology Instagram text post. Neither apology satisfied skeptical viewers.

Mario Lopez

Mario Lopez said that it’s ‘dangerous’ for parents to support transgender kids. The “Extra” host’s views on transgender children have been called damaging by experts and LGBTQ advocates. “I’m never one to tell anyone how to parent their kids, obviously, and I think if you come from a place of love, you really can’t go wrong, but at the same time, my God, if you’re 3 years old and you’re saying you’re feeling a certain way or you think you’re a boy or a girl or whatever the case may be, I just think it’s dangerous as a parent to make that determination.” “It’s sort of alarming, and my gosh, I just think about the repercussions later on,” he continued.

Camila Cabello

The Cuban-Mexican singer and actress, set to star in a remake of “Cinderella,” was forced to apologize for repeatedly using the n-word on her Tumblr account when she was a teenager. In a series of tweets, which were flagged by Buzzfeed as spewing “racism, xenophobia, domestic violence, and slurs,” Cabello was shown to have taken part in conversations that were extremely damaging. The thread revealed that Cabello had reblogged various racist and xenophobic Tumblr posts that mocked people who were Asian, Mexican, and Black.

Kevin Hart 

Hart has a pretty vile history of documented homophobia, ranging from offensive standup clangers to dumb interview statements to puerile tweets to a whole embarrassing film filled with it. In 2010, during his “Seriously Funny” standup special, Hart delivered an extended joke based on a fear of his three-year-old son Hendrix turning out gay.

Jeannie Mai

Host of “The Real” and TV personality Jeannie Mai is learning that lesson the hard way after her relationship with African-American rapper Jeezy, Jay Wayne Jenkins, went public on Instagram. In response to the couple’s great news, the internet was quick to resurface an old clip of the television host proudly and enthusiastically claiming that she might date Black men but prefers to marry men who are white. 

Sabrina Claudio

Late last year rising artist Sabrina Claudio was criticized after old tweets were uncovered using racist language. Following a conversation with a fan, the artist confirmed she previously ran a Twitter account called @ODamnYourUgly, leading to a search through old messages. Some had been deleted, but others hadn’t, and it seems the account had a predilection for using offensive language. Insults against Black women and light-skinned Latinos were uncovered, leading to a widespread backlash on social media.
