Someone On Twitter Claims To Have Figured Out Who Bad Bunny’s Muse Is And We Are Here For It

Bad Bunny is as melodramatic as he is a hitmaker. The emo Latin trap king is always rapping or singing about a love interest, whether expressing heartbreak (“Amorfoda”), blaming his ex for the split (“Soy Peor”), declaring he’s better off without her (“Solo de Mí”), reminiscing on their past (“La Canción”), realizing he hasn’t quite moved on (“Triste”), acknowledging she was right all along (“Otra Noche en Miami”), imagining the life they could have had together (“Si Estuviésemos Juntos”), asking her to return (“Vuelve”) or reminding her that she’ll always be his (“Mia”).

Someone clearly broke El Conejo Malo’s heart — and a Twitter fan thinks he’s uncracked who the perp could be.

In a lengthy thread on Twitter, user and major Benito stan @vicentetrujillo8, also known as “god bunny,” made a convincing case on how Bad Bunny’s ex-girlfriend Carliz is the famed artist’s muse behind his biggest hits.

“Este hilo es con fin de entrener y para hablar sobre una persona que ha sido fuente de inspiración para las letras de Benito, y como él la sigue recordando en sus canciones,” the Mexico-based enthusiast begins the thread, also posting an old photo of the former couple.

According to the fan, Benito and Carliz were high school sweethearts who dated from 2011 to 2017.

The pair allegedly worked at the Econo supermarket together in Vega Baja before his career took off in 2016. The following year, the couple, according to Vicente, had planned to wed. Instead, they split up. Since then, the sad boy pisces has made numerous songs about an ex, many that the Benito devotee believes were directed at Carliz.

In “Otra Noche en Miami,” Bad Bunny raps, “Pero son las 11:34 y de ti me acordé” y “En el garaje esta el Bentley que tanto querías.” In Vicente’s posts, he highlights two tweets from Carliz, one from February 14, 2018, Valentine’s Day, when she wrote simply “11:34” and another where she joked “voy a tener que empezar a cobra regalías.” 

In a later Instagram live, she also notes that her dream car is a Bentley.

There’s no solid proof that those Benito verses were directed to Carliz, but it does seem hella likely.

Vicente, however, digs deeper into El Conejo Malo’s lyrics for further evidence.

In “Si Estuviésemos Juntos,” an aged Bunny imagines a wedding with a woman that never took place, much like his planned nuptials with Carliz. Even more, the woman booked to be Benito’s bride in the video heavily resembles his ex, with bangs just as she used to have when they were dating.

In current songs like “No Me Conoce” Remix and “Callaíta,” Vicente is convinced he’s talking about Carliz.

Benito bigs up women who are both smart and sexy, he could once more be referring to women like Carliz, a student at the University of Puerto Rico School of Law who often takes videos of herself with friends singing and dancing along to reggaeton and Latin trap hits, oftentimes many of Bad Bunny’s own jams.

“Por lo que muestra en sus redes, podemos deducir que Carliz es una chica buena y estudiosa, pero que disfruta su vida junto a sus amigas. Una que otra vez, la hemos visto en sus historias de Instagram, bailar las canciones de Benito como Mía, Callaíta, No Me Conoce, etc,” Vicente writes.

While the fan makes a strong case about Carliz being the muse behind many of Bad Bunny’s songs, Bad Bunny has us thinking otherwise.

In an interview with Puerto Rican comedian Chente Ydrach, Benito noted that his songs were directed to different women and were even sometimes an imagining of what some of the ladies he has dated would say or feel about him.

In the interview, which was published on the funny guy’s vlog on December 24, the day Benito dropped his surprise debut album, Chente asks bluntly, “who are you talking about?”

“I’ve been a lover since I was a boy, since I was little. In the first grade, I’d bring a Valentine’s Day gift to school, and I would give it to the prettiest girl I saw that day. So since I was a kid, I’ve been a lover, and when I fall, I really love them and suffer and cry and think, ‘damn, I really love her.’ I’m of that flow,” he said, suggesting that he has had many heartbreaks and thus writes about each of them.

He goes on to say that the sad songs on X100PRE, as well as the ones that came before the album, are about different women from different times of life because he has gotten his heart broken on multiple occasions.

But he also adds that some of the songs are imaginings of what the women whose hearts he shattered would say about him.

“When I sing ‘Amorfoda’ in my concerts, I always say that I’ve fallen in love a thousand times, I’ve had my heart broken a thousand times and I’ve also broken a thousand hearts. So there are also songs that I sing as if the person who I fucked up with is singing it to me. ‘Soy Peor’ doesn’t signify that I’m worse; it signifies that she’s worse because of me,” he shares.

With Benito’s relationship with Carliz being his longest, and possibly the most meaningful, it’s likely that Vicente is right about many of El Conejo Malo’s songs referencing this specific ex. However, as a self-described lover and heartbreaker, Bunny himself admits that his tracks are inspired by several past and current romances, and the only one who could identify which emo bop is for which lover is, well, Benito.

Bad Bunny Fans Are Feeling All Kinds Of Ways After News That The Reggaetonero Will Headline This Year’s Pornhub Awards Show

Here’s a piece of news that made us do a double-take – Puerto Rican artist Bad Bunny is set to perform at the 2019 Pornhub Awards, in Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theatre, on October 11. For starters: who on Bad Bunny’s team thought, “this is gonna be a career-making event, better make sure Bad Bunny’s on the lineup?” And secondly: Pornhub holds an annual award ceremony?! Okay, we’ll admit there’s definitely more than meets the eye on this one, so we’ll tease it out for you.

First things first, let’s talk about the Pornhub Awards.

It makes sense that Bad Bunny would want to join in on what the Pornhub Awards might have to offer. Last year, which was the first time the Awards were held, Kanye West headlined. In fact, he used the ceremony to debut his and Lil Pump’s banger, “I Love It.” It’s worth acknowledging that Kanye was one of two Creative Directors for the first-ever Pornhub Awards, so he clearly had a hand in ensuring that his tunes were up front and center for the ceremony.

Apparently some pretty big names in the music industry are involved in these porn awards.

And who was the second Creative Director working alongside Kanye, you ask? Willo Perron – who has also produced and collaborated with the likes of Jay-Z, Drake, Rihanna, Florence and the Machine, and Bruno Mars. Willo has been brought back to put together this year’s Pornhub Awards ceremony. So when you think about it all in that context, Bad Bunny jumping in on performing for the Pornhub Awards isn’t really that left-of-field.

But we should also really talk about the Pornhub Awards’ cultural impact.

Yes, babes, we’re going there. Because there’s no way you can say that Pornhub doesn’t have a cultural impact, if it’s got the money, the audience and the artists to host an annual awards ceremony. Securing an artist like Bad Bunny to perform means that the awards ceremony isn’t just centered around the porn industry – it’s branching out to appeal to a wider audience that also enjoys Bad Bunny’s music. And, once the event secures more musical acts, it again expands the potential audience for the awards.

Yes, it’s true: Pornhub has a cultural impact.

From one perspective, this event could potentially have quite a positive impact. The reality is that sex is still treated as a taboo subject by wider society. And you know what that means? As a result of our unwillingness to talk about bonking, we actually end up having worse sex. Communication is key, babes. And what better way to demystify and destigmatize sex than by pouring money into an awards ceremony that celebrates it?

Just like all good things, though, there is a downside to the Pornhub Awards.

Instagram / @pornhub

Part of what makes porn so divisive is the fact that it can be prescriptive – if people see other people having sex a certain way, then that’s gotta be the way to bang, right? While this isn’t so much of a problem when we’re talking about plain ol’ vanilla sex, this can be a bigger issue when some porn tends towards the more extreme. Sure, people can have their kinks, but there’s a danger that consuming porn that depicts more dangerous, or even traumatizing, acts can result in people expecting their partners to deliver the same kinds of things in the bedroom. This can create more problems in our sex lives than we bargained for, just because we snuck a cheeky look at Pornhub.

For many, Bad Bunny doing this concert is just totally weird.

Instagram / @badbunnypr

Pornhub presents even more issues in terms of how it distributes porn. Firstly, because it’s pretty easy for kids to stumble across sexually graphic content – at least more so than twenty years ago. And secondly, because Pornhub is actually putting a lot of people in the porn industry out of business. Its free access model means that, more often than not, people who should be getting paid for their work just aren’t being paid, anymore.

And yes, these issues around Pornhub are much more complex than what we can discuss in just a single article. But, what this all boils down to is that Bad Bunny’s decision to perform at the Pornhub Awards acts as an endorsement of Pornhub … both the good and the bad.

Both of the concert series will be broadcast live on UforiaMusic.com, as well as on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.

This will give fans and listeners who can’t attend the shows an opportunity to donate and feel apart of the event themselves. Those who aren’t unable to attend the concerts can donate directly to affected community groups by visiting Univision’s charity page, Unidos Por Los Nuestros.

Bad Bunny and J Balvin, are expected to perform songs from their collaborative EP, Oasis, live for the first time ever. Hopefully this can provide a well needed break from what has been a tough week for many in this country.

Music has been a constant force in heeling when it comes to tragedies and for many it’s a way to escape, even for a little while. We’ve seen that this past week as music has been a big part of healing efforts in El Paso. Whether it’s been corridos or banda, it’s all played a big role in healing and helping many move forward.

The deadly attacks over this past weekend left 31 people dead and occurred at a shopping center in El Paso, Texas, and a popular housing complex in Dayton, Ohio. The El Paso shooting rocked the Latino community in the border city of Texas where many are still grieving and recovering from what many are calling a “hate crime” against Latinos.
