The 28-year-old Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny kissed his backing dancers during his live performance at the MTV VMAs. The rapper delivered a performance on Titi Me Pregunto. He became the first non-English artist to win the Artist of the Year award at the ceremony.
The Moscow Mule singer performed with a crew of backup dancers dressed in wedding dresses. The Puerto Rican rapper first kissed the female on his right, then turned his head to kiss the male dancer on his left. According to the Independent, his fans were all ‘fired up’ and gave certain reactions following the event.
One of the people wrote, “Bad Bunny kissing a guy at the VMAs That’s it. That’s the f***ing tweet. We have a chance, boys!!!”
“Bad Bunny shares kiss with backup dancers during his#VMA performance”, read a tweet.
“Bad Bunny kissing a girl then a guy on the stage of Yankees stadium and the MTV Video Awards was a f***ing serve”, read another tweet.
The artist was joined by former New York Knicks forward and fellow Pureto Rican Carmelo Anthony, after his performance. They presented him with his Moonperson trophy. “I don’t have the words to describe what I’m feeling. The pride I’m feeling to be at Yankee Stadium accepting this award,” he told the crowd in Spanish. “Yo soy Benito Antonio Martínez, de Puerto Rico para el mundo entero.” (In English: “I’m Benito Antonio Martinez. From Puerto Rico to the entire world.”)
Bad Bunny was also nominated for the Album of the Year for Un Verano Sin Ti, Best Latin Song for Titi Me Pregunto and Song of the Summer for Me Porto Bonito alongside Chencho Corleone.
Prior to 2022, he had been nominated for a total of five VMAs, including Song of the Summer in 2018, Best Latin Video in 2019 and 2020, and two Best Latin Video nods in 2021.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Bad Bunny appeared in David Leitch’s action comedy Bullet Train, which opened at Number 1 at the North American box office earlier this month.
