This Bad Bunny Fan Received The Surprise Of Her Life When El Conejo Malo Offered To Buy Her Artwork Of Him

Bad Bunny is one performer who always surprises us. He has given us gender-bending looks, LGBTQ+ inclusive music videos, and flaunted his stuff in drag. During the COVID-19 lockdowns, the legendary Latin trap star continues to deliver sweet and compelling moments to the masses.

Artist Cynthia Coronado used some of her quarantine time to create some masterful art.

The quarantine is giving people a lot of time to work on their own crafts. Some people are cooking more while others are learning how to bake. Some people are stick to what they already do but are really fine-tuning and elevating their crafts. Coronado did just that with this Bad Bunny masterpiece.

Coronado even offered up a little look into her process in a timelapse video.

The video offers a glimpse into the work and patience it takes to create a piece of art that impressive. The amount of time it takes to make this painting is impressive and makes artists worthy of all of the praise they receive for their work.

Don’t worry. Bad Bunny saw it and gave her an offer for the piece.

Look at Bad Bunny doing something for a fan that he really didn’t have to do. We love to see it. It seems like the trapero is always there to make his fans feel special. It is a look that will only serve to make him a more beloved star in the Latino community.

The attention from Bad Bunny helped to catapult the young artist into the consciousness of several Bad Bunny fans.

Coronado got so many requests for the art that she started her own website to showcase and sell more of her work. She even got prints made of her Bad Bunny piece to sell online to fans who wanted a piece of the iconic work.

Coronado’s first batch of 150 Bad Bunny prints sold out very quickly.

Don’t worry. Coronado is so excited about the unexpected interest in her art that she has ordered more prints. This means there is still a chance for people to get their hands on one of her wonderful Bad Bunny prints. This kind of cuarentena hustle is goals af.

People started to flood Bad Bunny’s tweet with their own fanart.

It isn’t every day that you see celebrities reaching out to fans to buy up their art. Someone as big as Bad Bunny buying up an artist’s work and publicly acknowledging it is an incredible moment for them. It is just one of the many reasons so many people love and support Bad Bunny.

Meanwhile, some people know their limits so they’re just trying to get San Benito’s attention.

To be fair, art is subjective so your stick figure drawing might deserve a place in an international art museum so keep on going for it. Ponte las pilas and create something magical while in quarantine. Or don’t. Just do whatever you need to at this moment.

Someone Claims That They Discovered A Long-Lost Frida Kahlo Painting But Experts Don’t Agree

Frida Kahlo is one of the most iconic artists in global history. The Mexican artist was known for blazing her own path both in art and in society. One of her most famous paintings “The Wounded Table” has been missing for 65 years but one art dealer claims he found it.

A Spanish art dealer claims to have found a long-lost Frida Kahlo painting.

Kahlo painted “The Wounded Table” in 1940 and over the years it disappeared. It is unknown if it was returned to Moscow, was lost, or destroyed. All that is known is that Kahlo’s largest painting to that date is gone.

Cristian López Márquez, a little known art dealer in Spain, claims to have found the long-lost and highly sought after painting. According to La Voz de Galicia, the art dealers claims to have acquired the painting from some who settled in Spain from Mexico.

The painting is one of Kahlo’s most famous works of art.

The decades-long mystery about where the painting ended up does add to the allure of the claim. However, people are not convinced that the painting is a fake that is being peddled by someone who is after money by selling an inauthentic painting. To make matters more skeptical, the art dealer has very few details but is adamant about its authenticity.

“Time will give us the truth,” Márquez told AP. “Whoever proves genuine interest and the ability to pay the figure of 40 million euros, can spend as much time as wanted with their experts analyzing the work.”

Despite Márquez’s claims, art historians are very skeptical that the painting is true.

Márquez claims to have the painting safe in a warehouse in London. He has put the painting on sale asking for $45 million. No one seems to be biting but Márquez continues to say the painting is an original.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Says Criticisms Of ‘Hamilton’ Are Valid And It’s All ‘Fair Game’

Update July 7, 2020, 4:00 p.m. PST: People are going after “Hamilton” because of its depiction of Alexander Hamilton, who was a slave owner. In a time when Confederate monuments are falling, some people want to cancel the show because it does elevate the people of the time. Lin-Manuel Miranda does not disagree with them

Lin-Manuel Miranda validated the criticism lodged against “Hamilton.”

There was a lot of criticism recently lodged at the musical. The renewed attention is partly because Disney+is streaming the very successful play during the 4th of July weekend. While Miranda has said the criticisms are valid, he did express the difficulty of creating a play and capturing every moment of the Founding Fathers in one play. There is no arguing that the Founding Fathers were not indeed problematic and owned slaves.

During this time, it is important to have tough conversations about the legacy of this country and what we can do to acknowledge and rectify the issues.

“Hamilton” is an exquisite work of art. The casting sets it apart from other plays that do not try to be as inclusive. Yet, it is very important to remember our history. Some of the people we are taught to celebrate and hold in high esteem are not worthy of that praise. Some are responsible for killing off large amount of native people. Others were involved with the brutal slave trade that created one of the largest diasporas in human history. You can honor the work of a Latino creator and acknowledge the flaws even he admits to.

Original: Families across the nation celebrated their 4th of July weekend watching “Hamilton.” The musical is one of the most celebrated musicals in recent history. Yet, some people have a problem with the musical and its debut on Disney+ has angered some Twitter users.

“Hamilton” is currently streaming on Disney+ and fans are so excited.

The very popular musical is a Broadway sensation. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s play is one of the most celebrated shows in recent history with sold-out shows across the country. The play tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

The play has been celebrated because the actors cast in the production are all actors of color. It took a white story and was filled with people of color showing a side of Hamilton people don’t often address. Miranda admitted that he didn’t know much about Hamilton until reading a biography about the man while on vacation. He felt the story of Hamilton is inherently an immigrant story and deserved to be told with a twist.

#CancelHamilton started trending over the weekend and a quick search shows that most of the tweets are from conservatives.

There is a movement happening right now in the U.S. with people tearing down statues honoring Confederate soldiers and leaders. The Confederacy is the side of the Civil War fighting to preserve slavery and lost the war. The hashtag is filled with people complaining that other Confederate monuments are being torn down, so why not cancel “Hamilton.”

One argument being made against canceling “Hamilton” is that it is fiction. Those for the cancellation of “Hamilton” claim that is should be torn down like Confederate statues. Yet, those against the cancellation claim that the show is a fictitious account and not the same as monuments and statues built to celebrate a legacy steeped in slave ownership.

Some of the people defending the show are pointing to the cast of filled with people of color.

The show made history with its diverse cast offering a glimpse into history through the voices of people of color. This kind of representation gave young people of color a chance to see themselves represented in history. It might only be a play but it is a play that has captivated an audience of Black and brown people who can see people who look like them representing U.S. history.

It has reignited the debate about cancel culture being weaponized and weakened by bad actors.

The cancel culture has come after several celebrities and businesses calling out bad practices. It seems though that every week there is a new attempt to cancel someone or something. Cancel culture has come under fire for cutting people before giving them a chance to learn from their mistakes.

Some people want to cancel cancel culture instead of “Hamilton” and that thought is spreading.

Cancel culture has claimed a lot of people. It started to grow in prominence as social media became more and more popular and far-reaching. What do you think about Cancel Culture?
