You know how Pitbull has become BFF’s with SO many celebrities? Like, they ALL want to be his friend? Well, seems like politicians want in on some Pitbull lovin’, too — specifically Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio.

“I have a relationship with Jeb Bush and I have a relationship with Marco Rubio, and when we sit down and talk, we don’t talk politics,” Pitbull said to Fox Latino.

Anyone would think that these two are looking for Pitbull’s presidential endorsements, but the singer has been clear about that for a while: “[they’re] not looking for endorsements. They like to hang out and talk. And I like to hang out and talk. I like to learn. I like to hear what they got going on and what they’re thinking.” So just guys being guys?

Of the two, Pitbull seems to be closer to Bush. During a Howard Stern interview, the rapper shared how he told Bush about his nickname [SPOILER: Bush can be really funny]:

“I said, ‘Well, I was on the way to a pit bull fight, and a Dominican friend of mine was like, ‘Yo, that should be your name — you’re always out here fighting these guys and battling in rap and this.’ And Jeb goes, ‘Well, good thing you weren’t on the way to a cockfight.’”

Ha!

Steven Fernandez, 15-year-old pro skateboarder and Youtube star nicknamed “Baby Scumbag,” along with his manager, Jose Barajas and another pro skater, Keelan Lamar Dadd, were arrested recently on suspicion of luring a 12-year-old girl to commit sexual acts.

The Youtube star promised the girl he’d introduce her to celebrities and have her on an MTV show that didn’t exist in exchange for sexual acts with all three men. The girl accepted the offer, but soon after told police.

Fernandez, who has a huge following on Youtube, Twitter and Instagram, used his fame to lure the girl and at this time the authorities are not sure if she’s the only victim.

“Fernandez and his buddies used his fame and brand to sexually exploit the very girls who made the men rich and famous,” Ninette Toosbuy from the LAPD said. “We’re taking exceptional measures to find additional victims because the fate of some young lives may be at stake.”

However, Fernandez’s attorney, Ryan D’Ambrosio said, “We feel personally that he is just as much of a victim as the other minor in the case … and that his celebrity status was preyed on by the adults who were arrested in the matter.”

Fernandez took to Twitter to address his fans: “F*ck I feel like I’m letting so many people down” and “Please don’t ever give up on me”.
