It’s a literal silver lining on that beaded suit.

Everything is coming up roses:

In this “La Gitana” duet with Mexico’s adopted daughter, Rocío Dúrcal, JuanGa went with a truly magnificent floral cape. It is ?!!

JuanGa is just trying to see(quin) and be seen as he catches the light during this spectacle of sparkle at a concert at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City.

The red, white and green of the Mexican flag will always be a classic color combination…Juan Gabriel knows that. This might be one of his tamest outfits, but he makes it fierce.

Everyone tries to copy JuanGa, SMDH:

One of his most notable outfits has been this fantastic jacket with purple sequined paillettes. JuanGa was steps ahead of Sarah Palin, who might have tried to steal his TRAILBLAZING look when she endorsed Trump in a similarly spangly jacket (played below by Tina Fey on SNL):

And before Bey…

Before Beyonce strutted onto the 2013 Met Gala’s red carpet adorned in black and gold…

…There was JuanGa:

JuanGa was already sparkling in a black and gold beaded number that was as ’80s as Aqua Net hairspray and perms. Just LOOK at that dangling pin/ascot/bolo tie/whatever it is. Slay JuanGa, slayyyy!

“AHHH, BEEP BEEP!”

In the ’60s, Puerto Rican and Cuban musicians in NYC took Afro-Cuban rhythms, mixed them with American R&B and created a new genre of music: Latin Boogaloo. Soon, the streets in neighborhoods such as Spanish Harlem, the South Bronx and Brooklyn, were filled with the sounds of Latin Boogaloo. A new documentary, “We Like It Like That,” revisits the heyday of Latin Boogaloo and the movement to keep it alive. NBC Latino interviewed director Mathew Ramirez Warren and Joe Bataan, a gang leader turned musician who was one of the pioneers of Latin Boogaloo.
