Colombian Pop Singer Grew Up Catholic and Now She’s Got a Song Called “Jesus Made Me Bad”

“Cos Jesus made me, but he gave me an evil mind.”

Colombian pop singer Lao Ra fashions herself a rebel. Check out her Tumblr and you’ll find pics of iconic female singers who were known for never sticking to the script: Gwen Stefani, M.I.A., Madonna. So, on her debut single, Lao Ra decided to go big. She playfully sticks out her tongue at the conservative culture of Catholicism with a song titled “Jesus Made Me Bad.” Here are some of the lyrics:

I’ll flirt with your dad
And I’ll sleep with your mum
And then, I´ll break your heart
I´ll make out with your friends
Oh I will misbehave
One day I’ll run away

Lao Ra knows she’s bound to ruffle a few feathers. She told The Fader even her family members aren’t fans of the song: “Even though my family isn’t religious, [they] think I’m disrespecting tradition.” Lao Ra says that’s the whole point.

The 3 “Ingredients” that Perpetuate Latina Stereotypes

Caliente, sexy, spicy…these words get so tiresome.

It’s no surprise that Latina’s continue to be bound by stereotypical roles in Hollywood and, while it may seem harmless to portray Latinas as sexy, these typecasts have real consequences. In this first installment of “Stereotypology,” a YouTube series produced by Stuff Mom Never Told You, the producers explore the origin of the “spicy” Latina stereotype.

The video promptly points out how Latinas in pop culture are often stereotyped as “curvaceous, passionate, loud, tempestuous, super-catholic, really good cooks and wild in the bedroom,” citing Eva Longoria’s work in ABC’s Desperate Housewives and Sofia Vergara’s flamboyant nature in the hit series Modern Family.

Wondering what makes a spicy Latina? Well, the video also breaks it down. Here’s their spicy latina recipe: a dash of old school racism, pinch of cartoonization and sprinkle of marginalization.
