“There is no reason to ever be ashamed of where you’re at. Not when you’re doing your best. Not when you’re in your best moment,” Lopez told Pressler. “There’s always gonna be people to tell you no. Or ‘You can’t.’ Or ‘You shouldn’t.’ It’s gonna happen. No matter what anybody says, you just have to still be like, ‘I’m still doing this. I’m still gonna succeed. I’m still gonna do my best.’ Defy the odds. Why not?”

Bad Bunny Speaks Up About Gender Fluidity

Bad Bunnyis speaking out about society’s gender roles…

Ever since his debut back in 2015, the 25-year-old Puerto Rican Latin trap singer has not been shy about his thoughts on the gender roles society places on everyone. He has regularly depicted himself painting his nails in videos and has previously spoken about his distaste for the way people treat gender.   

Bad Bunny

In a new profile with GQ, Bad Bunny spoke out again about sparking conversations regarding gender fluidity. 

The star said he understands he’s not a revolutionary in this field and gets the back-and-forth happening among his fans. “There’s people that appreciate what I do; there’s people that criticize it,” he said. “There’s people who say, ‘Thank you for sticking up [for us], thank you for defending [this].’ There’s others that say I’m an opportunist.”

But he also told the men’s magazine that he didn’t want to be an artist who never said anything about issues that are important to him. “If I were like other artists, I’d forget about what’s happening and not say anything,” he said.

Bad Bunny said his activism, including his conversations on gender roles, is less of an option and more of a duty. “I think it’s my responsibility, as a person of influence … to sometimes try to do what I can,” he said. “If I have the chance to say something, I will say it — but that doesn’t obligate me to always say something, or to shed light on every problem, as if I were a lawmaker.”
