It looks like Ricky Martin’s bleached blond whiskers will stick around long enough to make it into the singer’s next music video.
The award-winning performer had been thrilling fans with pics of his beautifully blond facial hair in recent weeks while in Puerto Rico. While there he's been spending time with his family — his mom lives there as does his extended family. Although the natural color of his facial hair is brown, the most recent pics show Martin still sporting the new look while holding the Grammy he received for his 2020 EP Pausa. The trophy recently came in the mail.
“It has arrived!” a jubilant Martin declared in the post, proudly holding the Grammy. While most of his head (and hair) is hidden in the picture, his blond beard is clearly visible and even appears to have grown out a bit as well. But according to Daily Mail, while he is relaxing in Puerto Rico, he's also filming a music video with Carlos Vives.
Martin revealed the new look last month in a series of pics posted to social media. He claimed at the time the move was made out of boredom from the continued quarantine.
“When bored, bleach,” he wrote in the post showing off the bright blond beard.
This isn’t the first time Martin has changed his look while bored in quarantine. In March he famously switched the color of his hair to Red Passion at the suggestion of one of his sons.
Last week, Martin announced he was teaming up with the onePULSE Foundation to raise funds for a permanent national Pulse memorial and museum to commemorate the victims of the 2016 mass shooting at the Orlando nightclub. Martin and the foundation hope to use the new OUTLOVE HATE campaign to raise $49 million from one million participants donating $49 each to fund the proposed memorial and museum, along with education programs, community outreach, and legacy scholarships. Martin said he will make a series of public service announcements, social media posts, and other contributions to the cause in an unpaid position.
“I’m excited to assist onePULSE Foundation with engagement and awareness-building opportunities as they build the National Pulse Memorial & Museum,” Martin said in a statement. “The OUTLOVE HATE campaign is the perfect way to start our partnership.”
