Before Wilmer, she dated Joe Jonas, Trace Cyrus and Cody Linley.

Enter Wilmer Valderrama who she describes as ‘very manly’ and ‘protective.’

“When I dated white guys, it wasn’t as passionate as my relationship with Wilmer,” she told Latina. “Maybe that’s just Wilmer. But I do believe that Latin people are just more expressive, more passionate with their emotions. He’s very manly, and he can be stubborn like Latino men can, but he’s protective and he cares so much and loves so hard.” No wonder their relationship is still going strong.

Yes, we know some are reacting like this ?, because stereotypes?. tumblr_n0j9shWtev1s8ghqso1_500

But you are not alone. In fact, there are plenty of Latinas who openly say they will probably never date a Latino.

But Demi is enjoying Wilmer’s passionate company so much she’s doing more to get in touch with their roots, like learning how to cook from Wilmer’s mother despite the language barrier.

“His mom teaches me to cook. She showed me how to make arepas,” she said. “I can understand Spanish better than I can speak it. I’m not good at retaining information or even my own song lyrics, so remembering an entire language has been difficult for me. #SayNoToDrugs,” she said.

But say YES to some Latino lovin’!

Maluma Lands Cover Of “Elle” And Talks About Why It’s So Hard To Make New Friends

It seems like Maluma has long gotten the short end of the stick. As J Balvin and Bad Bunny rocketed to international superstardom, Colombian pop star Maluma hasn’t quite enjoyed the same level of mainstream recognition that they have. I mean who can forget his snub at the 2019 Met Gala…that was just heartbreaking to watch.

Although he’s just landed the cover of Elle magazine (the first time it’s ever featured a man), many are still asking why a pop star as talented and gorgeous as Maluma hasn’t reached the same level of fame? Well, in his interview with Elle, we get a few answers to some of world’s most pressing questions for Maluma.

Maluma has become the first ever man on the cover of Elle magazine.

Colombia’s superstar reggaetonero landed the cover of Elle’s February 2021 issue, becoming the first man to ever achieve the honor – and he shared a lot about his life – from his music, his 2020 experiences and his friendship with Jennifer Lopez.

And Maluma himself also seemed excited about the cover. “IT’S MALUMA BABY!!!!! Thank u @elleusa for making me the first male on the cover of the magazine, this means a lottttt to me!” he wrote on social media alongside the cover photo, which features the global superstar rocking green hair.  

“Let’s keep dreaming and achieving,” he added. 

Although the Colombian singer-songwriter’s world tour was suspended last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Maluma’s popularity has continued to skyrocket. (He even dropped a collab with The Weeknd last fall.)

In the interview, he reflected on 2020 and how it’s impacted him and his career.

“2020 has been a very difficult year for all of us, but I feel like this was my best year so far, musically, artistically, and personally,” Maluma told Elle, and he couldn’t be more right.

“I was talking the other day with my parents, and they were very happy because I’ve stayed a long time in Colombia, but they were also a little bit worried because they didn’t know what was going to happen with my work,” he continued, reflecting on the time he’s spent at home amid the pandemic. “My job is being on tour, but for me this has been very positive, being here in Colombia. I feel very connected again with myself.”

The singer also opened up about building connections with others, especially in the music industry.

“I don’t really like having new friends,” he said. “I try to make friends in the industry, but it is very hard. Sometimes I feel like they want to be my friends, but once I show them my back, they stab me.” 

“I prefer staying safe with my friends, where I always feel comfortable. When I didn’t have any money, they were there for me, inviting me to their house for lunch. They’re the ones who were laughing at me, and now they are enjoying my success,” he continued. “That’s life—just being grateful for everything that has happened.”

Though he didn’t name names, many were quick to speculate about who Maluma may be referring to.

While Maluma didn’t explicitly name anyone in the industry, Anuel AA appeared to diss him in Bryant Myers’ “Gang-Ga” remix in 2019. In the song, Anuel rapped, “Nunca flow Maluma / Siempre real G,” in which Anuel essentially meant he had a “real flow.”

The Puerto Rican artist added more fuel to the fire by writing on Instagram, “Flow Maluma = Pa las baby.” Around that time, Bad Bunny also tweeted Anuel’s verse.

Maluma later addressed the lyrics during an interview with Molusco, saying, “No me importa, la verdad. No me importa,” which translates to “I don’t care, in all honesty. I don’t care.” He joked for Anuel and Bad Bunny to call him, adding, “I don’t know why they did it. I’m still confused.”

Exes Wilmer Valderrama and Demi Lovato Are Playing Soulmates in Netflix’s Animated Movie Charming and Talk About Awkward

Wilmer Valderrama and Demi Lovato don’t let a little thing like emotional baggage get in the way of their careers. The famous former couple proved that exes can actually be friends when they worked together on the new Netflix animated movie, “Charming”, that premiered on Friday.

Not only did Lovato and Valderrama co-star in the children’s movie together, but they played lovers. And not just lovers, but soulmates.

It looks like Lovato and Valderrama truly decided to remain friendly and supportive of each other after their breakup in 2016. Which in itself is a rarity!

In “Charming”, Valderrama voices a spoiled Prince who is “cursed” to have every woman fall in love-at-first sight with him until his 21st birthday.

When the project was announced in 2015, Valderrama was extremely excited about the opportunity to represent greater diversity in a children’s movie. “We’ve all been waiting so long to see a Latin princess represented in an animated fairy tale,” he told Deadline. “I’m grateful to the enlightened producer John Williams for anointing me as the first Latin prince.”

Lovato plays a Lenore, a savvy street urchin who is also cursed to never find love. Together, the unlikely duo are tasked with going on a quest to break Charming’s curse so he can save the kingdom.

When discussing their previous relationship in the past, Lovato and Valderrama have been nothing but gracious.

In fact, Demi Lovato recently told Harper’s Bazaar that she’s happy for Valderrama and his new fiancée, Amanda Pacheco. “I’m really happy for him and I wish him nothing but the best, but we’re not in each other’s lives, haven’t spoken in a long time,” she admitted.

She continued: “But I think I needed that because I needed to learn to be okay on my own. When you get into a relationship with somebody at that young of an age and then you spend six years with somebody, you don’t really get to learn about yourself.”

When Lovato has talked about the reasons behind their split before, she’s always maintained that it had “nothing to do with falling out of love”.

“The sparks never faded, but there are issues that I haven’t conquered yet that I know I won’t conquer if I’m relying on somebody else to take care of the loneliness,” said Lovato in her 2017 documentary, “Simply Complicated”.

But Lovato and Valderrama aren’t the only reason to queue up this flick. The movie also stars Ashley Tisdale as Cinderella, Avril Lavigne as Snow White, and Chinese popstar phenomenon G.E.M. as Sleeping Beauty.
