Since she started dating Wilmer Valderrama in 2010, Demi Lovato is convinced of one thing…

Latino men are more PASSIONATE.

Not to bash on her former non-Latino lovers, but this 23-year-old dated white guys they just didn’t deliver.

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.

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’!

Even If You’re A Maná Fan, The Fact That They’re Playing At The White House Might Annoy You

Maná, the biggest and most successful Latin American rock band, were invited by President Barack Obama to perform at the White House’s annual Cinco De Mayo Celebration.

Our reaction?

Seriously, ¿porque?

According to Buzzfeed, the Obama administration sees their Cinco De Mayo celebration “as a way to unite the community and show support for Mexico, Mexican-Americans and Latinos at large.”

To the White House’s credit, Maná does have a history of activism, whether it be on environmental issues (they have a foundation called Selva Negra) or just telling people not to vote for Donald Trump.

Let’s be honest, though, picking Maná to play at your Mexican/Latino-themed event is about as original… well, a Maná song.

Before y’all start grabbing for the pitchforks, here us out: the reason Maná has had success for nearly 30 years (yes, they’re old AF) is that they’ve done the same couple of songs over and over and over again.

Even the Steve Aoki remix of one of their songs sounds EXACTLY LIKE EVERY OTHER MANA SONG.

This isn’t a bad thing, and it’s not like we dislike Maná. In fact, they’re the only band that our entire family can agree on. “Cuando Los Angeles Lloran” (the album, not the song) helped us get through our first breakup. Our mom likes to clean the house on weekends with “while writing this, and it still holds up.

To be clear, there is nothing wrong with sticking with a formula that works.

Coca-Cola tried to change their formula and backfired on them. People love the familiar, which is probably why Carlos Santana asked Fher & Co. to collaborate that sounds like pretty much a lot of Mana songs.

The decision reeks of tokenism. It’d be like inviting U2 to perform during St. Patrick’s Day because, hey, it’s an Irish holiday and they’re from Ireland!

I mean, just look at that picture of the two lead singers. Can you tell which one’s which? Dem shades! Seriously though, our big issue isn’t with Maná, but rather with the White House clearly doing the bare minimum on a holiday that’s not even that big of a deal.

Here’s a thought, Obama: Instead of phoning it in (let me guess, you’re gonna serve tacos, aren’t you?), how about bringing a fresh and new band? Here’s a very helpful list.
