If you ever underestimated Demi Lovato’s ability to really sing — we don’t blame you — you won’t anymore. Her impressions of Christina Aguilera, Fetty Wap and Cher on the Late Night Show with Jimmy Fallon are proof the girl’s got MAJOR talent.
While playing Wheel of Impressions with Fallon, Lovato does a spot on Cher singing “Bingo was His Name-O.” Then nails a hip hop version of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” à la Fetty Wap. And finally shuts it down impersonating Christina Aguilera while singing “Spongebob Squarepants.” Don’t mind the song, because Demi’s voice had every bit of Christina’s edgy belts, vibrato and dexterity. Who the f*&$ knew?
When it comes to wedding taboos, actual ceremonies can be a minefield for disaster. From appropriate colors to wear, types of headgear (never wear a tiara if it’s not your day!), and dance floor gags and wedding toasts, it seems that when it comes to W-day anything can go wrong.
Especially when guests with free-minds are attending.
Likely no one has a keener understanding of wedding day madness than Twitter user Amy Pennza who recently shared a post to Twitter of possibly the worst wedding faux pas occurrence ever. Turns out it also happened at her very own wedding in 2004.
Pennza’s own mother-in-law showed up to her ceremony wearing a long, white gown ― AKA, a wedding dress.
Fortunately, Pennza explained the incident in a thread to her account and as it turns out the nightmarish moment and the MIL are much more redeemable than we’d ever thought. According to Pennza, the MIL, who continues to struggle with letting go of her early years as a child in poverty, could not pass up on a sale at Dillard’s.
Fortunately, Pennza’s post unleashed a series of more tweets about similarly nightmarish stories.
Such as this bride’s madre y suegra match.
Can anyone say “twinning”?
And this novia’s big flop moment in front of a camera.
This bride says that in an innocent attempt to reinvent the Pinterest classic, she ended up eating it.
This officiant’s super odd replacement for communion.
BUT tbh this Boricua’s officiant gets it ride. Dunkin’ truly is the bread of life.
This Latina who got tricked and broke off the engagement.
Oof. Actually this horrific story sounds like a nightmare. Here’s hoping the groom grew up right quick after this.
This mujer whose mother literally LOST her wedding dress.
My girl. How does a wedding dress fly off of an actual car?? Can’t imagine how this poor girl’s mother felt after this happened. Fortunately, the thrift bride was able to find a replacement dress on time!
A destination wedding that has already been abandoned before it took off.
Okay but for real… doesn’t everyone low-key assume that a destination wedding is supposed to exclude?
This story of abuela serving the ultimate mal de ojo.
Ay yay yay. This story of a Latina who had previously been married being shamed just before she walked down the aisle could have been the worst, fortunately she served her own snap back.
This poor bride who was called a racial slur.
Unfortunately, stupid is as stupid does and stupid does exist in the world. Even at weddings. Fortunately this bride who was called a “dirty Mexican” during a drunken toast took things in stride.
And finally a sweet story to beat them all.
This one might definitely make you rethink how you pick out your groom’s men and flower girls but it’s still pretty cute.
This month marks 20 years since Christina Aguilera released “Genie in a Bottle,” and the artist is celebrating a new milestone this weekend: “The Xperience” opening show of her Las Vegas residency. It was at her Vegas residency that Aguilera dropped some highly anticipated news that is making fans flip out with excitement.
“Let us not forget,” Christina Aguilera told her fans. “The Latin album is coming.”
It seems that Xtina is raising a family, enjoying her residency in Vegas and working on a new album… in Spanish.
“I want to do it the right way,” she tells Billboard.
“I’ve been wanting to do it for years,” she told Billboard. “But I want to do it the right way. I want to work with musicians and beautiful people from the Latin world who just eat, sleep and breathe it, and live it, and learn from them. I want to really experience it from the ground up.”
Fans are already trying to help Xtina out with some references.
Twitter user @NBCTeamShakira called out Aguilera with a little suggestion, “Hey @xtina… Call @shakira to help you with your Spanish Album. She is a producer, songwriter, and singer. She has 12 Latin GRAMMYs and 3 GRAMMYs. It’s the biggest female name in Latin America, and the fans dream of their collaboration. Powerful women. #XtinaAndShakira”
And a hashtag was born. #XtinaAndShakira
Demi Lovato might have been her No. 1 stan at the show.
Lovato filmed nearly the entire performance on her Instagram live, including selfie videos of actual tears running down her face. Fans are now wondering if Lovato will be featured in her new album.
In case you forgot, Aguilera released “Mi Reflejo” in 2000 and Latinos had a moment of representation in mainstream pop music wept.
Aguilera’s “Mi Reflejo” won the Bet Female Pop Vocal Album Latin Grammy and has been promising a follow-up album for a minute now. Why the hold-up?
Aguilera revealed that she’s starting to take Spanish lessons.
“I always heard my parents speak it in the house, but I never fully learned [Spanish],” she tells Billboard. “I’m even digging in and trying to start the lessons.”
“It’ll take a little time balancing the show and the recording hours, but it’s coming.“
Fans have heard this before and are jaded by false promises. Others, however, have high expectations.
This fan who experienced #TheXperience first hand predicts a new Latin Queen.
Unquestionably, J.Lo has sat at the throne for decades now. This is the “Game of Thrones” chisme we deserve.
Other fans are already opening space in their hearts for a Latin tour.
Latin America has been waiting for a tour for far too long, and @JeanCDeLuca predicts Aguilera will grace the diaspora in 2020.
We’ve moved past asking when the album will drop to begging for the tour.
We’re blasting @SergioTheHuman’s request from the rooftops in the hopes that Aguilera will hear her fans. Her Spanish language album success has only marinated into stronger cravings for more content.
Obviously fans wan a headlining performance at the Latin GRAMMYs.
The biggest question folks have right now is: who will be on the album? So far, Christina has only alluded to the album being in the making.
Those ride or die fans are already making threats in exchange for live music.
Cuidado, Xtina! Your Latino stans need you more than you know.
Needless to say, fans are shooketh by the whole Xperience.
As the summer goes on, who knows what else we’ll learn from Christina’s own mouth. We hope she’ll practice her Spanish with the audience.
