Ricky Martin has gone viral in the last hours due to an exclusive interview he gave with fellow Enrique Iglesias to journalist David Valades, of the Univisión Network programme, El gordo y la flaca.
The musicians were promoting the start of their North American tour – of which Sebastian Yatra is also a part – at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, but it wasn’t Ricky’s comments that caught the networks’ attention but his looks.
Although his hair color change (it’s now more blonde than usual) was quite noticeable, memes on Twitter have highlighted the 49-year-old’s potential aesthetic touch.
Memes that multiplied in networks
When did Ricky Martin want to look like Carlos Vives? , “Ricky Martin’s transformation into Fernando Borlando is incredible”, “Mickey Rourke got into Ricky Martin’s body” were just some of the comments that accompanied the memes that brought the trend back on singer on Bird’s social network, where they also compared him to actor Zac Efron.
Despite the uproar caused by his new appearance, Martin did not echo the “controversy” and decided to continue promoting the tour that brought him together with his teammates.
“What a good party last night. This tour is not to be missed. Fabulous production. I have to thank the 120 people who worked so many hours to put on this show, both on and off the stage. Lighting engineers, sound engineers, technicians, electricians and surveyors. Thank you so much. This is only the beginning. See you this week in Chicago, Boston, Toronto and Montreal,” Martin wrote a few hours ago on his Instagram account, where he shares postcards for the just-starting tour.
A very special tour
In another conversation that Martin starred in, in this case with the inline Yatra, via Zoom, and without journalists, the singer wanted to know why this tour was so important to Iglesias, in which his colleague explained his desire to stop recording albums. “Obviously the final title [de su inminente disco] It has many meanings. I’m trying to tell you that it might be my last album,” the musician said in a live broadcast with his tour partners.
“I am at that moment in my life, in a chapter of my life, when I think this is the time to stop,” he said, adding, “I will never stop making music, and I will never stop writing songs because I love writing songs, but I will do it in a way Different, which means they don’t have to be in a package like an album. I don’t have the speed that you, Sebastian, have to write a song and record a video on the same day. I wish I was that fast,” the Spanish artist joked. “This tour will be important for me to share with you,” Iglesias said. “I think we are going to have fun, we are going to have a great time and I think the fans will enjoy it. It is an event that will be very special for us and the fans.”
The Enrique Iglesias & Ricky Martin Tour in 2020 has been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic and finally started on September 25 this year, with the Yatra being the opening, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, where Martin gave the interview How much outrage it caused . The tour will end on November 20 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, except that new dates have been added due to the success of the presentations.
