He Called Trump Out On Twitter And Is Owning Every Word He Tweeted About His Puerto Rico Response

“It’s the definition of adding insult to injury.”

Lin-Manuel Miranda sat down with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes to talk about Puerto Rico and his new song, “Almost Like Praying,” which was created to raise funds for hurricane recovery efforts on the island. Miranda also discussed the Twitter rant he went on late last month, where he told President Trump that he was going straight to hell. Miranda says his tweets were impactful because it was a complete change in tone from the jovial, mild-mannered Miranda we usually see on social media. Miranda says the attack from Trump against the Puerto Rican people and the mayor of San Juan was just too much for him to take.

“I don’t talk like that,” said Miranda. “At the same time, I’ve never seen the president attack the victims of a natural disaster. I’ve never seen a president attack the elected officials on the front line of a disaster. What other words can you say in the face of this thing?”

Miranda went on to say that what he expects from the president and the federal government is, at least, the same response to Puerto Rico relief that we saw for Florida and Texas. Miranda lamented a recent study that found almost half of Americans don’t know that Puerto Ricans are American citizens. He was also skeptical of the Trump administration’s argument that relief efforts for Puerto Rico were so much more challenging logistically.

“The logistical challenges mean we need to be more ready when something [happens],” Miranda says. “Not, ‘We’re so surprised at how hard this is turning out to be.'”

Miranda has been doing everything he can to help Puerto Rico, including sharing this image of himself dressed as J.Lo.

Miranda promised fans that if his charity Spotify playlist “For Puerto Rico Por Puerto Rico” reached 50,000 followers, he would post a photo of himself in J.Lo drag. Sure enough, Miranda proved to be a man of his words and gifted the world with the above photo of himself dressed as Lopez.

Joe Jonas Didn’t Know The First Time He Met Camila Cabello So She Produced The Receipts

So, like, when are Camila Cabello and Joe Jonas recording a duet?

Camila Cabello and Joe Jonas recently teamed up for the latest “Carpool Karaoke” episode on Apple Music and they are adorable together. The two singers belted out “You’re The One That I Want” from the “Grease” soundtrack and they nailed it. Like, the two were Sandy Olsson and Danny Zuko while driving on the streets of Los Angeles. Their chemistry was apparent right away, as Cabello looked at Jonas and asked if he remembered the first time they met. Jonas’ first recollection was an awards show, but Cabello revealed she had actually met Jonas while he was still a member of the Jonas Brothers. Jonas said he had no idea.

Cabello had a photo to prove she had met Joe during his Jonas Brothers days.

You know, when Jonas was still rocking the somewhat longer hair and was bringing us hits like “Burnin’ Up” and “Hold On.”

Here’s what she showed him: One of those sneaky, blurry fan selfies with the celeb completely unaware in the background.

Looks like Cabello was a total fangirl before becoming a celebrity herself. #Adorbs
