The world is mourning the unexpected death of Mexican singer Juan Gabriel who passed away of natural causes on August 28 at his home in Santa Monica, Calif. He was 66 years old.

Gabriel’s family confirmed the heartbreaking news Sunday night via an official statement. “My father’s untimely passing is a tragic loss for all of us, his family, colleagues, and fans alike. We give heartfelt thanks for the outpouring of condolences we have received from around the world including from President Enrique Pena Nieto. We know that our father will miss entertaining his countless fans, who brought him tremendous joy in life,” stated Gabriel’s son, Ivan Aguilera.

Born Alberto Aguilera Valadez in Parácuaro, Michoacán, Mexico, Juan Gabriel is the mastermind behind international hits such as “Amor Eterno,” “Querida,” “Noa Noa” and “Abrazame muy fuerte.” You know, all those songs that your mom and your tia’s blast at every fiesta.

While we try to cope with El Divo de Juarez’s passing, people on Twitter are expressing their feelings and it’s striking a chord.

Celebrities reminisced on the times they got to meet El Divo de Juarez.

But really… Diego Luna’s reaction is all of us right now.

Marc Anthony lost it on stage during his concert in New York City as he sang “Abrázame muy fuerte.”

We can all relate to this girl’s mom and her obsession with Juanga.

Because his music transcended generations.

And got men to get in touch with their feelings.

Better believe everyone will be blasting their favorite Juanga songs for weeks to come.

Because this news has us like ?.

Juan Gabriel sold millions of records, recorded dozens of albums and wrote more than 1,000 songs over the course of five decades, according to Latin Times. He is survived by his sons and grandchildren.

U.S. Gymnast Laurie Hernandez Had The Most Fun At The VMAs

U.S. Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez attended this year’s MTV Video Music Awards along with three of her history making teammates: Simone Biles, Aly Raisman and Madison Kocian. Gabby Douglas wasn’t able to attend as she was recovering from a pretty serious infection. Despite the missing teammate, Hernandez seemed to have the time of her life and her social media accounts are filled with her memories of the night. Like when she got to hug Beyoncé after presenting her with the Best Female Video award.

Hernandez, Biles, Raisman and Kocian were on hand to present the “Best Female Video.” Of the four, it is pretty clear that Laurie Hernandez is the most excited to be at the VMAs.

Just look at the huge smile and excited eyes we have all come to know and love. So proud of you, Hernandez!

She spent the night getting as many selfies as she possibly could. Here’s her pseudo-duet with Desiigner.

Panda. Panda. Panda.

And Kanye West.

Look at Kanye almost cracking a smile.

She and her teammates also met Kim Kardashian.

Here’s another angle of Laurie’s selfie fest.
