Alejandro Sanz Received An Outpouring Of Love And Appreciation After His Speech At The Latin Grammys

After being honored as the Latin Grammy’s Person of the Year, many celebrities showed their love toward singer and musician Alejandro Sanz. But the one celebrity who proved she was the biggest Sanz fan was Camila Cabello, and she made sure to explain why his music means so much to her.

Recently at Los 40 Music Awards, Cabello had a major fan girl moment as she gave a shout out to two special people in the crowd.


The look on her face says it all.

Her excitement only grew stronger as one of those special people, Alejandro Sanz, joined her on stage and complimented her.


I would’ve probably reacted the same exact way.

Cabello then had the opportunity to attend and perform at the Person of the Year Ceremony, honoring Sanz. But she couldn’t attend such a momentous occasion on her own.


Cabello had to bring her mom and dad to the event, insisting on even flying her dad out to not miss such a huge moment since they all love his music so much.

After the ceremony Cabello shared personal details on her Instagram about the emotional connection she’s always had with Sanz.

"Que digan por televisión que hay suelto un corazón, que no es igual, que es peligroso…que es distinto……" Alejandro, my parents have danced and cried and fallen in love to your songs since I was a little girl… growing up, they would play your songs on repeat and I would sing the words and melodies about heartache and love and loss and friendship even when I was in 1st grade and the most intense thing was that the boy I liked took my crayons…. . As I got older and I realized what it means to fall in love, to be heartbroken, to feel everything, the more I've made my way through this thing, this beautiful chaos called life… the richer your music becomes. It's like reading your favorite book in different parts of your life and every time you feel something different, it teaches you something new … through your art you've inspired me to love fearlessly, to live intensely, and to have the courage stand with your soul naked in a crowded room….. Ayer sentía que estaba soñando con los ojos abiertos, thank you for your magic ?? #alejandrosanz #personoftheyear #latingrammys

All of this explains her major fan girling, and it’s pretty adorable.?

But Cabello wasn’t the only person who showed her love and appreciation for Sanz. After dedicating his award to the Dreamers, the singer was greeted with an outpouring of affection from fans .


As part of this dedication, Sanz even had a group of Dreamers join him on stage to perform his hit song “Corazón Partío.” It was such a moving moment.

And it really stole people’s hearts.




So many people on the internet expressed their appreciation for Sanz, as he recognized and supported all of the Dreamers whose futures in the U.S. are at risk.

In response, Sanz thanked everyone who took part in celebrating him.


“Music is the rapid heartbeat of emotion and yesterday mi heart was outside of me. Thanks to every person yesterday who made me dream one more time,” he tweeted.

And he reminded us all why dreams matter.


❤️ Thank you, Alejandro Sanz.

Kali Uchis’ “Telepatía” is Becoming a Global Hit Thanks to TikTok

Through the power of TikTok, Kali Uchis is taking her song “Telepatía” to the top. The Colombian-American singer is sitting comfortably in the top 10 of Spotify’s Top 200 chart in the U.S. thanks to a TikTok trend.

This isn’t the first time that TikTok brought new fame to songs.

TikTok has proven to be quite the catalyst for today’s top hits. The app assisted in getting Olivia Rodrigo’s “drivers license” to the top of Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it remains. TikTok also reinvigorated interest in Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” last year thanks to Doggface’s viral video. Now Uchis is getting her long overdue shine with “Telepatía.”

“Telepatía” is becoming a global hit thanks to the same phenomenon.

At No. 7 on the Spotify U.S. chart, “Telepatía” is the highest-charting Latin song in the country. Bad Bunny’s “Dákiti” with Jhay Cortez is the next closest Latin song at No. 14. “Telepatía” is also making waves across the globe where the song is charting on Spotify’s Viral Charts in 66 countries and in the Top Songs Charts of 32 countries.

There’s also plenty of “Telepatía” memes.

Uchis is turning the viral song’s success into strong sales and streaming. On this week’s Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, “Telepatía” debuts at No. 10, marking her first top 10 hit on the chart. There are also memes circulating on other social media apps that are contributing to the song’s virality.

“Telepatía” is one of the key cuts on Uchis’ debut Latin album, Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios). It’s the best example of her translating that alternative soul music that she’s known for into Spanish. The song is notably in Spanglish as Uchis sings about keeping a love connection alive from a distance. It’s timely considering this era of social distancing that we’re in during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Uchis is currently nominated for a Grammy Award. She’s up for Best Dance Recording for her feature on Kaytranada’s “10%” song.

Kehlani Dresses as Both Prom King and Queen on Cover of ‘Playboy’, Talks Feeling Comfortable in Both Gender Roles

Kehlani has long been open about the fluid nature of her gender expression. That’s why it’s exciting that the R&B star is experimenting with different facets of her personality on the most recent cover of Playboy.

In a bold move, Kehlani appears on Playboy‘s latest cover dressed in both (traditionally) women and (traditionally) men’s clothing.

And as if one Kehlani isn’t exciting enough, the magazine cover treats us to two versions of this Oakland native. On the left side of the magazine, Kehlani is dressed up as a Prom Queen, complete with a resplendent gown and a tiara. On the cover’s right side, Kehlani is dressed in Prom King drag: her tie undone, her collar open, her crown askew.

She shared the picture to her personal Instagram page with the cheeky caption: “I always wanted to date me.”

In the accompanying interview, Kehlani talks about gender identity and expression, motherhood, and owning her sexuality.

When Kehlani was asked how she defines masculinity and femininity, Kehlani got refreshingly candid. “I’ve discovered that I’ve run from a lot of femininity,” she admitted. “I was way more comfortable in a more masculine space. I feel more masculine when I am in my stillness and I’m grounded in a quiet, contemplative mode.”

She then explained that she feels “most feminine” when she’s “being the mother of my house.” (Kehlani had a baby girl named Adeya Nomi in 2019). She also explained that she “feels her femininity” when she ‘s indulging in self-care, like soaking in a flower-filled bath, or doing a hair mask.

“My femininity makes me feel soft and gentle and tender and careful in a different way than my masculinity makes me feel,” she said. “I’m trying not to let it fall into the gender norms of feminine and masculine, but for me it does a tiny bit. But I also am very fluid in both of those settings.”

Kehlani has always been open about her fluid sexuality and gender identity.

In 2018, she tweeted: “Not bi, not straight. I’m attracted to women, men, REALLY attracted to queer men, non-binary people, intersex people, trans people”.

But of course, haters on the internet accused her of “queer-baiting”–that is, pretending she’s queer to get more LGBT fans and attract attention. In an interview with The Guardian last year, she revealed why the accusation frustrates her.

“I’ve had girlfriends in front of people’s faces, right under their noses, and they weren’t famous and so nobody cared to make it public,” she said. “So they automatically assume that I must like men more than women.”
