¡Ay papi!

by Anonymousreply 4504/30/2013

Meh. I wish THIS Yankee would come out.

by Anonymousreply 104/03/2013

Republican asshole. Must have some pretty good pics.

by Anonymousreply 204/03/2013

OMG it's a Jody Foster coming out. He never says he's gay, but the roundabout platitudes imply enough. If anyone is interested, I'll be glad to translate. Let me know.

R3, yes please.

by Anonymousreply 504/03/2013

Sure, R3. Translate.

Google Translate is your friend.

by Anonymousreply 704/03/2013

his representative said he is not gay.

by Anonymousreply 804/03/2013

OK, the Google translation is awkward but accurate. He Jodie Fostered his way out of the closet.

by Anonymousreply 904/03/2013

Not the Yankee I was hoping for...

by Anonymousreply 1004/03/2013

Is he a hip hop "Artist?"

Ffft; who cares.

by Anonymousreply 1104/03/2013

Reggaeton - a mixture of hip hop, tropical, reggae done in Spanglish and Spanish to a very heavy slow beat.

by Anonymousreply 1204/03/2013

Okay then. I care even less.

Hard to deny this,

by Anonymousreply 1404/03/2013

McCain supporter and Republican asshole, no thanks.

by Anonymousreply 1504/03/2013

He issued a denial last month but then issued this new statement after the kissing pic came out.

by Anonymousreply 1604/03/2013

Hey r15, people evolve.

by Anonymousreply 1704/03/2013

Es un escandalo!

by Anonymousreply 1804/03/2013

Is there a trend? Elvis Crespo has played gay pride venues in the past. And Jerry Rivera will be at the Parliament House in Orlando later this month.

by Anonymousreply 1904/03/2013

In 2010 a transsexual went on YouTube claiming they had a thing, but she recanted her statement soon after.

by Anonymousreply 2004/03/2013

Everyone in my high school loved that Gasolina song and I remember him being punk'd. He didn't seem gay at all.

by Anonymousreply 2104/03/2013

For those unfamiliar with his oeuvre:

by Anonymousreply 2204/03/2013

i.e., background music for "Fast & Furious VII."

by Anonymousreply 2304/03/2013

Now he's saying it's not true and that the picture is not him.

by Anonymousreply 2404/03/2013

He didn't "seem" gay? .. How do gay people "seem?"

Uh, you know... "gay."

by Anonymousreply 2604/03/2013

That's not a coming out that's a refutation of his being gay.

Do you not speak Spanish or do you simply have a reading comprehension problem?

by Anonymousreply 2704/03/2013

r27 you're an idiot. Spanish is my first language.

The first article posted by OP is a roundabout coming out statement, attributed to Daddy Yankee. Then the link at r24 is a denial by his rep that includes the picture that caused it all (not Daddy Yankee according to his people), some past tweets and sound bites from Daddy Yankee when he had previously denied being gay last March, a recent tweet allegedly in reaction to yesterday's rumors, and finally, for dramatic effect on behalf of the people who wrote the article I suppose, the original "coming out" statement that OP had already posted.

Ahora cállate la boca y vete a dormir, que cuando despiertes la historia habrá concluido.

That pic is evidence of nothing. You can't even see the dude's face.

by Anonymousreply 2904/03/2013

Daddy Yankee is one hotttttt plantain.

by Anonymousreply 3004/03/2013

Damn, why couldn't it have been Pitbull???

by Anonymousreply 3104/03/2013

Love him, r31, but he's no Sean Paul (WHET him BTW?)

by Anonymousreply 3204/03/2013

Sean Paul is sexy as hell too, R32. He recently had a top 20 rap hit "Got 2 Luv U", which was featured in Magic Mike. He cut off his hair into a mohawk. I was pissed at first because I loved his long cornrows, but I've grown to like it.

by Anonymousreply 3304/03/2013

It may be cliche to say, but "Who?"

by Anonymousreply 3404/04/2013

I don't get it.. he didn't really come out? Yet so many people on twitter seems to think he did! He's been trending worldwide for like 24 hours now.

by Anonymousreply 3504/04/2013

The headline on my link has now been changed to "Daddy Yankee clarifies his supposed homosexuality." Looks like I posted a dud.

Daddy Yankee Gay Rumors: Denied By Publicist

Spanish-language media and bloggers have been in a frenzy over the sexual orientation of Daddy Yankee, the reggaeton king. But is there anything to debate?

The swirling gay rumors reached a crescendo Wednesday after photos of a man resembling Daddy Yankee kissing another man surfaced on the web.

The pics were reprinted by various celebrity gossip outlets.

That set off another round of innuendo and confusion.

According to some accounts, Daddy Yankee released a statement acknowledging that he is gay, and asking the media to respect his and his family's privacy.

"I am a human being like any other, with virtues and defects, and I don't believe that this is a defect," he was quoted as saying in a statement to the press and fans.

But according to other news reports, the 36-year-old singer, born Ramon Ayala, used a press conference to castigate the rumor mill for spreading falsehoods.

"Now, again to you ignorant ones: the Internet is where the lies become truth and truth becomes myth. Wake up, bobo!" Daddy Yankee is also quoted as saying.

Finally, a PR agency identifying itself as Daddy Yankee's publicist refuted online rumors that the Puerto Rican artist had acknowledged he is gay.

Wednesday afternoon, the offices of Nevarez Communications and Perfect Partners in Florida issued a statement that the reports were completely false:

"Online blogs and social media are once again to blame for the spread of false reports, which other media outlets have also shared regarding a public figure."

"The reports circulating regarding Daddy Yankee's declaration of homosexuality are false."

The reports, his PR company says, "were written by an online outlet known for fabricating false information and spreading it through social media sites."

Eonline is so wrong for this Daddy Yankee pic.

by Anonymousreply 3804/08/2013

It's either 'presuntamente' or 'supuestamente', R28.

Oh, sweet cryin' Jesus, R38.

Is response has been suspiciously muted and parsed.

by Anonymousreply 4204/15/2013

This is just ridiculous.

Beyond stupid.
