We Ranked Maluma’s Insta Photos From Best To Bestest

Maluma is a Colombian artist who performed at the 2018 Latin AMAs with his amazing remix of the song Mala Mia. At just the age of 24, he has already had many singles make it within the Top 10 on Billboard Hot Latin Songs. Maluma began his musical career in 2010 and since then has quickly risen to fame and it’s obvious why. Not only is he greatly talented, but he is gorgeous and seems to keep it real with his fans. His Instagram is proof of that with his fans taking up about half of his page with himself scattered between them. Here are 21 moments on Instagram where Maluma is both living his best life and sharing his best self:

1. Before His VMA Performance

Maluma is possibly one of the only people who can look so attractive while brushing his teeth, as well as put on a great performance literally 10 minutes after brushing his teeth.

2. Practicing Mindfulness

With the caption “Balance” under this photo, it’s easy to understand how Maluma has stayed so fit despite the busy schedule of a musician. It is also easy to understand how he’s managed to remain sane within the music industry. The answer is “balance”.

3. Looking Out

Is he drinking coffee, tea, or some other beverage? Does it matter? He seems to be enjoying whatever it is while gazing out of the plane window over the Dominican Republic. And over 900,000 people enjoyed this picture. “Republica Dominicana ya te veo” he writes under this post. They seem to be looking right back at him.

4. A Hug She’ll Never Forget

This is possibly one of the cutest photos from Maluma’s instagram and he captions it “Yo soy de ustedes <3” which magnifies the already heart warming quality of this post tenfold. This girl will most definitely never forget this moment and now shoulders both the love and jealousy of Maluma fans everywhere.

5. The Misleading Maluma

Upon first glance, this may seem like a photo of Maluma inviting viewers of this image to breakfast with him, but upon reading the caption, this dream is crushed with the words: “Stop taking pictures, give me my phone”. It’s okay though. You can definitely pretend you didn’t read that.

6. He Makes Being Tired and Sweaty Look Good

This sweaty, tired, hair-down look doesn’t work on everyone, but it definitely works on Maluma. It isn’t too hard to imagine the collective swoon from the sea of fans watching him in this moment.

7. Maluma Living His Best Life

This is a clear example of someone living their best life. With those shades, the suit, that smile, and look to the side, it’s a surprise Maluma doesn’t double as a model. Put the bottle of wine on the table and it will sell out as quickly as his shows.

8. Being Humble

With the hashtag “SOLDOUT” under this post, it’s easy to grasp why Maluma is being so thankful in this image. To acknowledge, hug, and thank your fans on stage is one of the humblest things one can do as part of the music industry.

9. Taking A Swim in Italy

The caption Maluma places under this photo is “Sicilia MI MANCHERAI TANTO <3” , which translates from Italian to: “Sicily, I will miss you so much”. Any viewer of this insta knows that Sicily will miss Maluma just as much.

10. Staying Fit

Maluma not only stays fit, but stays hydrated in this image. With the caption “BUENOS DÍAS VALENCIA,” it can be said that this was a morning Valencia would most certainly not forget.

11. Maluma Makes a Girl Cry

This is one of those heart wrenching insta photos by Maluma, not only because of the fact he just made this girl’s life, but that he seems equally moved in this picture as he continues to sing. That selfie she takes will definitely be a keeper.

12. Maluma is Sexy and He Knows It

This insta is great because not only does Maluma look amazing in this golden accented black tuxedo, but he seems to simply exude confidence. It’s just reverberating off of him.

13. His Cheeky Smile

Maluma has got the sort of smile that can physically make a person melt, whoever you are. This black and white photo is just a reminder of how beautiful humans can be.

14. Maluma in Orange

Maluma looking to the side in this gorgeous orange suit is one of those moments where the inside of a person truly reflects on the outside. It is only fitting that a man so full of positive energy would be wearing an equally bright suit.

15. Capitán Maluma

Whether Maluma was actually captaining or simply on board, seemingly at least 1,000,000 people want to be on it with him, based on the likes. He’ll make them fit.

16. An Appreciation of Nature

This image of Maluma in casual wear sitting over this beautiful landscape with a look of pure joy on his face is truly angelic.

17. Facing The Sunset

From the sun setting on the horizon casting its orange light onto the water, to the flexed muscles of Maluma’s well-defined back, it’s hard to keep your eyes off of this one.

18. The Horse Statue

It can be understood why Maluma just had to stop and take a picture with this horse statue. They just match each other way too well to pass it and it made for a beautiful photo.

19. Staying Grateful

This is one of the sincerest smiles possibly ever witnessed both on stage and on instagram. This look of pure gratitude and joy cannot be easily repeated.

19. A Fashion Icon

Maluma’s fashion sense is on point with from the wine colored turtle neck to the floral patterened pants and the actual glass of wine in his hand. You also can’t miss the accessories such as the rings on his hands and the watch on his right wrist. He’s a man who can do it all.

20. Being in Love

This is another misleading image that Maluma posts as he states “si… ESTOY ENAMORADO, de mi familia, mi novia, mi carrera, mi música y todas las cosas que Dios me da, me quita y me multiplica.” He sure is a tricky one, but also a gracious one as the things he is in love with are all heartwarming.

21. Maluma Goes Blonde

Maluma’s dark brown hair is iconic, but he manages to also pull off this blonde hair. The words he puts under this post: “R E N A C E R / R E B O R N” sums it up. He surely looks different, but also looks just as fabulous as ever.

#IceBae Has Blown Up The Internet. Meet The Latina Border Patrol Agent Behind The Viral Hashtag That Has Latino Twitter Freaking Out

#IceBae Has Blown Up The Internet. Meet The Latina Border Patrol Agent Behind The Viral Hashtag That Has Latino Twitter Freaking Out

A Latina Border Patrol agent has gone viral as #IceBae and from the looks of her new account on Twitter she seems to be enjoying the new found fame.

The agent, who identified herself as Kiara Cervantes, was photographed providing security for Mike Pence during his visit to a migrant detention center in Texas. From that photograph came #IceBae with thirsty fans calling her out for her beauty. But it also attracted many people who were appalled that a Latina would participate in the mass imprisonment of largely Latino men, women, and children.

All this started when a Latina Border Patrol guard was photographed providing security for Mike Pence at a migrant detention center.

So, who is the Latina officer in the photograph? The female officer has since been identified as Kiara Cervantes.  Many of the original comments were focused on her good looks, which kicked off the pretty bizarre hashtag #IceBae

Since the photo went viral, Kiara has started up her own Twitter account and has already racked up nearly 37.5k followers in less than 2 days.

It looks like Cervantes enjoyed the new found attention and decided to create a Twitter account to capitalize on all the fame. She posted a video (which has since been deleted) introducing herself as the #IceBae.

Apprently, Ice Bae has all sorts of ‘supporters’ that she had to thank on Twitter.

Because of the response to the original photo and that #IceBae was trending on Twitter with thousands of thirsty comments, Cervantes decided to create a Twitter account. One of her first tweets was to thank everyone for all the ‘support’ and to tell her ‘supporters’ how much she loves them.

She’s also taken to Twitter to share some selfies of her in uniform with her new found supporters.

Because when you work at a detention center that houses migrants in overcrowded cages and is at the center of an international scandal, of course selfies should be on your list of to-dos.

At least a few people on Twitter tried to help her out with some caption ideas for her new photo…

I mean that is pretty clever if it wasn’t so depressing.

And this person who kept her caption suggestion poignant yet simple.

What would you caption her photo with?

Seriously, the people are not here for it.

Apart from all of #IceBae’s supporters, her detractors are definitely speaking out on social media. Many pointed out how by sexualizing Cervantes they were also sexualizing the dehumanization of the very people being held in the detention centers.

Rapper Fat Nick, called her out as ‘literal scum’, that her family would be ashamed of.

Cervantes fired back Sunday at rapper Fat Nick who tweeted that her family will disown her and “shame on any Hispanic working for ice of anything of that nature.”

“I think that’s really rude and naive of you to say,” she tweeted. “You have no idea who my parents are and no idea what goes into my job on a daily basis… before speaking on something you know nothing about…. DONT. Regardless I’m blessed and thankful for the career I have.”

Another Twitter user pointed out what pretty much most of the Latino community is thinking.

One Twitter user, among thousands of others, called #IceBae what many are thinking: a guard at a concentration camp. For people to be idolizing a person who is supporting a system of injustice, racism, and bigotry, has many people across social media very upset, particularly those in the Latino community who feel #IceBae has turned her back on them.

J Balvin Gets In The Business Of Japanese Hip Hop As He Announces New Project For Anime Film

J Balvin is totally on a roll right now. He’s just released a surprise album, Oasis, with Bad Bunny which has rocketed to the top of the charts and now the Colombian singer has announced a new project that will take him in an entirely different direction.

J Balvin is working with a Japanese hip hop group in an upcoming anime film.

Reggaetonero and Latin music superstar J Balvin has teamed up with Japan-based hip-hop trio m-flo on the theme song for a new animated movie, called HUMAN LOST, to be released in theaters worldwide this fall.

The popularity of Japan’s anime culture is increasing around the world, so it makes perfect sense for the “Mi Gente” singer to do such an incredible collaboration.

The anime film he’s working on is based on a sci-fi novel from 1948.

The original novel, called No Longer Human, is rated as the second best selling novel in all of Japan. I’m pretty sure it’s safe to assume, that with the backing of J Balvin and m-flo, the new adaptation will do even better.

No Longer Human is told in the form of notebooks left by one Ōba Yōzō, a troubled man incapable of revealing his true self to others, and who is instead forced to uphold a facade of hollow humor.

The film, along with the new track, will hit theatres in the US this fall.

While the animated movie is set to hit the theaters in the U.S. in fall this year, it had its world premiere last Friday at the Anime Expo 2019 in Los Angeles.

M-Flo made a surprise appearance at the event to announce their involvement in the movie’s main theme, which features Balvin.

Turns out, M-Flo and Balvin also performed together at last year’s Summer Sonic Festival in Japan – Balvin’s first time performing in the country.

The “Safari” singer performed in Japan for the first time last summer at the annual Summer Sonic music festival, where m-flo’s VERBAL suggested they work on the theme song together.

A known fan of Japanese popular culture, Balvin readily accepted the offer and the collaboration took off from there.

Quite a few J Balvin fans were surprised by the annoucement but most were super excited for the project.

It’s definitely a big departure for the reggaeton singer but with the global popularity of Latino singers right now, it’s seems like a perfect match to us.

Some people on Twitter admitted they were just here for the new J Balvin track…not the anime.

Even if that’s true for some people, anime has exploded into a giant industry worth more than $18 billion globally, so I’d say Balvin is making the right decision.
