JuanGa Still Makes Us Cry With His Music And This Video Is Proof Of His Emotional Strength

When Juan Gabriel died in 2016, to say that we were devastated is an understatement. The Latino community, all of Mexico and Latin America, and fans from all over the world were in complete ruins when news broke that our beloved JuanGa had died. It felt unreal then and it feels unreal now, which is probably why people are still trying to revive him. There’s a definite void in our lives now that this icon is gone, but one thing that no one can take from us is his music. His words, his music, his melodies, are very much alive and well and they still bring up a ton of emotions, and sometimes it’s still a surprise that his music will hit us like a ton of bricks. Here’s proof. 

This video of a guy at a Mexican restaurant crying and singing along to Juan Gabriel’s “Hasta Que Te Conocí” is the cutest and saddest thing ever!

The video, which is probably old AF, made the rounds on Twitter recently and we couldn’t help but sympathize with this guy. 

The video starts off pretty chill because he looks so happy.

The guy, who is a mystery to us, looks to be eating at a Mexican restaurant (because who else would play Juan Gabriel in an establishment). He at first looks so happy to be hearing this one song, but he quickly changes once he starts singing the words. 

And then BAM, he is sucked into a sea of sadness by this love song, which is one of Juan Gabriel’s best, by the way.

We can’t understand what is making him so sad at that point. It could be a former love? A beloved friend? Perhaps the song is reminding him of his parents or a family member! We just can’t tell but the lyrics themselves are heartbreaking. Here’s the portion that this dude is singing along too.

Hasta que te conocí
Vi la vida con dolor
No te miento fui feliz 
Aunque con muy poco amor
Y muy tarde comprendí
Que no te debía amar
Porque ahora pienso en ti 
Más que ayer, mucho más.

Touching words right??

His tears and emotional distress is so intoxicating because people around him can’t seem to stop recording him.

He’s got like his own paparazzi following him around, recording every single movement, and tear. It’s nuts, but also thank you for this video

What makes this short video so amazing is that we are witnessing a snippet of emotions that go from utter happiness, to complete heartbreak, and back to high spirits in less than a minute.

We love that homeboy is back to singing along and smiling by the end of the video because we don’t think we could handle any more tears. We would have started a GoFundme account or something to save him from his sadness. But we honestly give up, why do you think this song made him so sad? Maybe we’ll never find out but this video has got us thinking.

Which other Juan Gabriel love songs makes you emotional?

We have to pick “Amor Eterno” as the ultimate sad song. 

“Yo No Naci Para Amar”  

Boy, this hurts like a mofo. 

Y la soledad
Cada vez más triste
Y más oscura yo viví
Y a esa edad
Todos preguntaban los motivos
Yo solía siempre decir
Yo no nací para amar
Nadie nació para mí
Tan solo fui

Go ahead, go get some tissue. 

“Gracias Al Amor”

In this live version, JuanGa is crying too! So don’t feel so bad about letting it out. Now is the time. 

People on social media will have so many feelings about JuanGa now and forever.

There’s no reason in trying to hide how we really feel. 

Feelings for JuanGa is genderless. It’s a human emotion.

Never give a hard time to anyone crying over Juan Gabriel. 

This lady doesn’t know if it’s the chilaquiles that is making her cry or the Juan Gabriel song.

It’s probably a combination of both, to be honest. 

Of course, even in the worse moments that we face, Juan Gabriel provides comfort even if it hurts like hell.

He is with us always no matter what.

Watch: ‘Walking Dead’ Actress Ditches Zombies For Red Lipstick In New Selena Series Trailer

Netflix

Hold on to your heart, chica. Netflix is coming for it and your tears.

Fans of Tejano music singer Selena Quintanilla are used to talk of production studios wanting to tell her story. Since the “Baila Esta Cumbia” singer’s death in 1995, fans have seen her story retold as a movie starring Jennifer Lopez and a 2018 series by Telemundo. Recently Netflix announced that they were going for the grab on her story, this time with a biographical drama web television series. While fans were treated to updates for “Selena: The Series” throughout the summer and earlier fall, Netflix officially dropped its biggest news yet with a teaser.

And there’s no doubt the nostalgia and passion of it all will make you tear up and ready for some cumbia.

Released on Tuesday, the Netflix series’ trailer teased a first look of actress Christian Serratos as the Tejano Queen in all of her jumpsuit glory.

This past August, Netflix announced that they had cast Serratos, best known for her roles in “The Walking Dead,” “Twilight,” and the Nickelodeon show “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide,” as the beloved Mexican-American singer. In the newly released one-minute trailer, Serratos can be seen channeling Selena’s classic looks as she looks over a script and practices some of the singer’s most recognizable dance moves. Donned in red lipstick, feathered bangs and later Selena’s iconic purple jumpsuit,  Serratos can also be seen greeting the two stars, Ricardo Chavira and Seidy Lopez, playing her parents Abraham and Marcella Quintanilla.

The Netflix teaser trailer ends with someone out of frame calling, “Alright, Christian, We’re ready to shoot” before Serratos gives a smirk to the camera and stepping on stage to sing “Como La Flor.”

The series, which was created with the participation of the Quintanilla family and announced by Netflix last December, has already garnered quite a bit of anticipation online.

 Back in 1997, the casting process for the singer had the Latino community astir for months until it was finally revealed that then-dancer, singer and actress Jennifer Lopez (still known as a triple threat for her moves, voice and acting chops) had earned the role. The Boricua’s casting caused quite the controversy primarily because she was not Mexican. This time around, Netflix kept the controversy in mind while conducting casting. In a recent interview with NBC News, Moisés Zamora– who is the head writer and one of the executive producers for the show– explained how crucial it was for him to ensure Mexican- identity was strongly included in the show.

“I associated her with my family and being Mexican in America,” he told the outlet at the time while highlighting how the younger singer was shaped by her identity of being a woman of Mexican heritage who also grew up in Corpus Christi while speaking English.

For the latest portrayal of Selena, the executive producer was involved in the casting of Serratos, a Latina of both Mexican and Italian descent.

Serratos knows all about breathing life into deceased characters.

AMC

For four seasons she has raged against the undead in “The Walk Dead” and in her earlier career played Angela Webber, friend to Bella Swan lover of vampires, in Twilight.

According to outlets, it’s unclear how the series will tackle Quintanilla’s vocals.

Back when Lopez took her turn as the singer, she was made to lip-sync to Quintanilla’s vocals. We’re pretty sure that if Netflix doesn’t decide to do the same, they’ll be in good hands because Serratos voice is banging. She even sings “Baila Esta Cumbia” in this compilation!

So far fans of Selena are on board with the news.

Of course, while most of the reactions to Serratos casting have been positive the TWD club is a bit worried.

Okay TBH it feels like a worthy sacrifice.

If fans of “The Walking Dead” are this bummed over possibly losing Serratos, that means she must be pretty damn good at taking on great roles. So here’s to Serratos and her new role! Hopefully, for TWD fans she’ll be able to juggle both… if not bidi bidi bom bom.

Ally Brooke Scored Two Perfect Scores In One Night On DWTS Landing Her On Track For The Semi-Finals

Ally Brooke Scored Two Perfect Scores In One Night On DWTS Landing Her On Track For The Semi-Finals

The competition is getting stiff on “Dancing With The Stars.” The season 28 cast has dwindled to a small group as they make their way to the semi-finals. We’ve already seen plenty of them get cut from the show, including  Kate Flannery from “The Office,” Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown, model and famous daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook, former NBA player Lamar Odom, and Supremes singer Mary Wilson. This week’s episode saw another cut (and some people were thrilled about it) during their “Boy Band & Girl Group Night” theme. The couples had to perform dance routines to songs made famous by girl groups and boy bands and controversial cast member Sean Spicer finally got the boot.

This week, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was finally eliminated.

Critics of Spicer swore he’d never make it past the first episode. After all, who would vote for a man that lied continuously during their time in the White House?  A lot of people, actually. Spicer made it all the way to week 9. Even President Donald Trump thought he had a sure shot of winning again this week. The president first tweeted, “Vote for Sean Spicer on Dancing with the Stars. He is a great and very loyal guy who is working very hard. He is in the quarterfinals — all the way with Sean! #MAGA #KAG.” But when Spicer got the ax, Trump deleted that tweet and revised it to: “A great try by @seanspicer. We are all proud of you!” Spicer responded to him by tweeting, “Thank you @POTUS @realDonaldTrump I can’t begin to express how much your continued support has meant, especially during my time on @DancingABC.”

Ally Brooke scored perfect tens all night. Now she’s going to the semi-finals.

Since the theme last night was girl groups and boy bands, you would think the former Fifth Harmony member would have danced to one of her own songs. Then again, that would probably be considered cheating or something. She and dance partner Sasha Farber danced to Spice Girls’ “Wannabe” and New Kids on the Block “Step by Step,” which she danced to phenomenally. The judges thought so too. They gave her perfect 10s all night. “Making our way to the semi freaking finals…Step by Step! Two dances & two perfect scores? I will never forget tonight’s show! 

This is not the first time Ally and her partner have scored perfect scores. They brilliantly scored the same last week.

People think their natural talent and skills is going to take them all the way to the end. However, just because the judges give perfect scores doesn’t mean the people will vote for you. Brooke learned that lesson last week. She tweeted, “So many mixed emotions tonight. I’m elated yet disappointed because I landed in the bottom two even after receiving the first perfect score of the season. All I know is this. I’ve given this my all and I’m so thankful for my fans voting each and every week.”

Here’s Ally’s second performance of the night, which she rocked.

For anyone thinking that Brooke has a leg up on everyone else because she comes from a dancing background, you should remember these are hard dances to learn. They have a lot of technicalities. Her partner Sasha tweeted, “Samba is the hardest dance to teach out of all the dances, as it requires a very unique technique and a specific knee bounce! Watching this back we worked hours and hours on just that. I’m so proud of you!!! Thank u in believing.”

Just to be fair, here’s Sean’s last performance as a contestant on the show.

Who knew you could dance the Foxtrot to One Direction’s “A Story Of My Life”?

Spicer told People magazine that he was relieved to have been voted out. Oh sure, Sean, change the narrative, he’s kind of a pro at spinning stories. 

“There’s been a tremendous amount of support that’s kept me out of the bottom two the last nine weeks and I’ve truly been humbled by how many people have taken time out of their Monday nights to keep me going,” Spicer told said to the magazine. “I will look back on this as an amazing experience.”

Now that he’s gone, the remaining group includes Ally Brooke, the “Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown, actor and comedian Kel Mitchell, country singer Lauren Alaina, and “Dawson’s Creek” star James Van Der Beek. 

Who do you think will make it to the end?
