Ricky Martin Explains How He Met His Fiancé: Instagram

A modern love story.


Ricky Martin sat down with Sirus XM’s Andy Cohen to talk about homeschooling his twins, meeting Michael Jackson, performing with Menudo and his upcoming Las Vegas residency. It wasn’t long until the conversation inevitably made its way to Martin’s engagement Syrian-Swedish artist Jwan Yosef. Martin first broke the news to Ellen DeGeneres in November of 2016 and people have been pining for the details ever since. Cohen was at a loss for words when Martin admitted to meeting Yosef on Instagram. That’s right — after seeing some of Yosef’s art on Instagram, Martin did some digging to find the artist’s identity. When Martin saw Yosef, that’s when his breath was really taken away. Now, Martin was clear with Cohen that despite sliding into Yosef’s DMs, he kept things classy by only talking about art.



“I wrote to him and then we were talking for like six months without me hearing his voice,” Martin said. “We talked about art. Nothing sexy. I swear it was nothing sexy. We just talked about art and life in general. He used to live in London and so I went to London and met. Then it was game over.”

Congrats again, Ricky. You look so happy.

A Reporter Said This Cuban-Mexican-American Pop Star Should Drop Her Last Name Because She Can’t Pronounce It

Erin Lim, the host of E! News’ Snapchat segment called “The Rundown” is in some hot water following her commentary on Camila Cabello and her name. The E! News reporter couldn’t just talk about Camila Cabello’s career without throwing shade at the Cuban-Mexican-American about her last name. But the Twitter warriors took to the airwaves and let her know what they think of her off-color humor.

This is the video that has subjected Erin Lim a severe Twitter dragging.


“Drop the last name,” Lim says about Camila Cabello’s last name. “It’s difficult to pronounce and unnecessary.”

Some people took the opportunity to give Lim a free Spanish lesson on how to pronounce the “difficult” and “unnecessary” name.


It’s not like you’re having to pronounce Rodriguez-Jimenez, which can be a tongue twister. It’s Ca-Bae-Yo.

And some people just wanted her to know that her comments were, well, insensitive.


There was a sense of pride as people pointed out that a last name carries heritage and identity.


It’s not like these names were pulled out of a hat to make life harder for entertainment reporters. These names come from somewhere.

And this Twitter user let Lim know that she created an unnecessary situation by not just learning how to say a name.


Anybody got some ointment for these burns?

What do you think?
