According To Wendy Williams, Maluma Is Dating Madonna And Mariah Carey Even Though She Doesn’t Know Who He Is

We all know that daytime talk show host Wendy Williams has plenty of drama going on in her own life. However, that didn’t stop her from letting it all out on her review of the Billboard Music Awards. Particularly, Williams tried to come for Maluma.

In her Hot Topics segment, Wendy came for both Madonna and Maluma who performed the single “Medellin” at the awards show.

First, she went for Madonna.

Like, why even say something like that? Madonna might not be the youngest artist out there right now but she is doing her thing and elevating Latin music artist to mainstream audiences.

Then she got it all wrong with Maluma.

After saying Madonna “moved like an old lady”, Wendy tried putting Maluma – who she thought was Madonna’s boyfriend – on blast. Williams was saying that he didn’t deliver during his performance with the Medellin singer. She was even confused because she thought Madonna’s boyfriend was supposed to be hot.

Wait up, Wendy. You did not.

Maluma is a hit-making singer in his own right and we are all luck to have him in our lives. Clearly, you haven’t taken any time to listen to the 25-year-old’s hit songs like “Corazón” and it shows.

Maluma is pure fire.

A few seconds later, Wendy switched gears. She puts a photo of the real-life sex god up on the screen and talks about how gorgeous he is before saying she thought he was Mariah Carey’s boyfriend.

Maluma + Madonna + Mariah? What the actual f*ck?

All of this happens before one of her cameramen has to step in to tell her who this beautiful man really is. It’s Maluma, baby. Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy. The same guy from the Madonna performance.

You’re welcome, Wendy. #smh

For someone who loves to stir the pot and act like a know it all, you really dropped the ball here. Maluma is someone we all know and love. If you don’t know him, you better learn. He is going to be around for a long time.

Perez Hilton is not having it.

Honestly, neither are we. She needs to make sure she and her team do some research before they try dragging people on air. Ignorance isn’t a cute look on you. This blatant disregard of one of reggaeton’s greatest icons is an absolute slap in the face.

If this wasn’t enough, for his first Met Gala outing, Maluma got no love on the pink carpet.

It was his first time there and he was absolutely working a stunning look. People rightfully pointed out that Maluma came to slay. The theme for the event was “Camp” and Maluma definitely slayed the challenge, showing up in a sparkly patterned Moschino suit.

Yet the getup didn’t seem to capture too many photographers attention.

As this actual footage of Maluma’s arrival clearly shows. Which left people, including us, completely puzzled. Like, how can you not pay attention to the Colombian singer that has captivated the hearts of millions? Unacceptable.

We the people are very pissed and heartbroken.

He came to slay and slay he did. It is time for everyone to take a moment and recognize Maluma’s Met Gala look for what it is, gold.

It was a traumatic experience that fans are being forced to relive over and over because of social media.

Who else is crying over it? The disrespect just seeps through the screen. Maluma deserves better. He is someone that needs to be respected and admired for his beauty and fashion choices.

ICYMI, here is the video of the beautiful and regal Maluma being ignored at the Met Gala.

This is a tragedy. Every photographer should be fired for not following through. He is a prince and deserves all of the spotlight we can give him.

A lot of people feel Maluma got cheated of his spotlight simply because gringos don’t know one of Latin America’s biggest stars.

Like there were literally dozens of men that completely failed the challenge. They didn’t channel the event’s theme of “Camp” in any way and instead showed up in basic black. But their photos are all over the place.

He’s got style, he’s got beauty, and he’s got talent. What more does society want from him?

2021 Latin American Music Awards Highlights: Ozuna, Eslabón Armado, Karol G and More

The 2021 Latin American Music Awards were last night and Bad Bunny emerged victorious. Even though the Puerto Rican superstar was absent, he won five awards.

Karol G and Nicki Minaj were big winners.

Right behind Benito, who took home Artist of the Year, was Karol G, with three wins. She won for her smash hit “Tusa,” which also made her collaborator Nicki Minaj a three-time winner. “Tusa” won the Song of the Year award over Bad Bunny’s “Yo Perreo Sola” and Colombian singer Maluma’s “Hawái.”

Boricua singer Rauw Alejandro also won big.

In the New Artist of the Year category, rising Puerto Rican pop star Rauw Alejandro took home the award. Like Bad Bunny, he was also absent from the ceremony. “Thanks to all those who voted for me,” Alejandro wrote in his Instagram stories. “I’ll see you all soon. Wait for me.”

The night was also filled with plenty of performances. Latido Music is here with five of our favorite Latin AMAs performances.

Eslabón Armado

Eslabón Armado is the Mexican-American trio that is reviving the sierreño sound in regional Mexican music. They’re doing it with their own emo spin on the genre. The guys won two awards: Favorite Regional Mexican Duo or Group and the Favorite Duo or Group general category. In one of their first major award show performances, the crowd was treated to Eslabón Armado’s “Con Tus Besos” live.

Ozuna

Last night Ozuna was honored with the Extraordinary Evolution Award for his incredible music career. The moment was extra special for the Puerto Rican superstar because his grandmother gave him the award. Ozuna was in tears of joy over the gesture. He also performed a medley of hits like “Vaina Loca” and “Dile Que Tu Me Quieres.”

Karol G

Fresh off her new album KG0516 topping Billboard‘s Latin Album chart, Karol G performed at the Latin AMAs. She gave her first live performance of “El Makinon” with rising Latina singer Mariah Angeliq. The sensual performance was a show of girl power at the awards.

Maluma

Maluma performed a few times at the Latin AMAs. He teamed up with Wisin, Myke Towers, and Anitta for their remix of “Mi Niña.” He also joined fellow Colombian act Piso 21 for their hit duet “Más de la Una.” His best performance of the night was “Tonika” from his 7 Días En Jamaica (#7DJ) album. He sang it with Jamaican music royalty Ziggy Marley for the first time.

David Bisbal and Carrie Underwood

In one of the most-anticipated moments of the night, Spanish singer David Bisbal teamed up with country music superstar Carrie Underwood. The duo debuted their duet “Tears of Gold” live and Underwood sang in Spanish.

Maluma Teams Up With Luxury Brand Balmain For This Must-Have Fashion Collection

Maluma Teams Up With Luxury Brand Balmain For This Must-Have Fashion Collection

It’s 2021 and we have no shortage of epic collaborations between some of the world’s biggest Latino stars and top fashion brands. Everyone from J Balvin and Bad Bunny to Cardi B and now Maluma have entered the fashion industry to sell a lifestyle. And people are buying!

Maluma and French fashion house Balmain bring us a limited-edition collaboration.

Colombian superstar Maluma has partnered with French fashion house Balmain to launch a limited edition collection that will be available from April 12 through June 1 in all Balmain stores, including brick and mortar and online.

The collection, which includes sneakers, blazers, t-shirts, pants and other ready-to-wear clothing, will also be available at Saks Fifth Avenue as of April 15.

The Balmain + Maluma line marks the first time ever the brand has designed a line with a celebrity. And it seems like the brand’s creative designer is pretty excited about the collab. Through photos on his Instagram, Olivier Rousteing referred to the reggaetón singer as his inspiration, captioned with supportive laudatory messages about merging their cultures and joint design process.

“Maluma, more than him being an incredible singer,” Rousteing notes, “[brings] a lot to the fashion community with his joy and his happiness and the fact that he’s always playing up his style from different kinds of houses from around the world, mixing different cultures as well… I think the collaboration with Maluma is obviously giving to Balmain and pushing the aesthetic more internationally.”

Maluma also seems to be pumped for the opportunity!

Although Balmain has featured other celebrities in advertising campaigns and runway shows, it has never actually enlisted a celebrity to help design a full, name-branded line.

The brand’s high profile, along with the haute-couture retail price of the collection, underscores how entrenched Maluma is now in the global fashion world and how valuable his endorsement and name is perceived by high fashion.

“It’s been one of my goals to work with a respected fashion house on a collection, but this journey was more exciting, as Olivier pushed me to design with him and sketch looks that I personally will wear off the stage and showcase high couture with a bit of Papi Juancho,” says Maluma, referencing both his album name and alter ego.

But if you want a piece of the collection be prepared to drop those coins.

Items in the Balmain + Maluma collection range from a black cotton T-shirt that retails for $495, to $1,500 high top sneakers to a $2,555 multi-color print bomber jacket.
