Superstar footwork, outlined because the choreography of creative and way of life strikes performers of all types use to draw new legions of money-waving acolytes to their “product,” lies at Fred Astaire ranges of complexity. Heaving up on the American horizon for the previous few years has been one of many extra deceptively agile way of life choreographers in Mr. Benito Antonio Martinez Ocasio, aka, “Dangerous Bunny.”


First, the economic report: All of 29 years of age, Mr. Martinez Ocasio has been rocking his personal moderately groovy Latin entice/reggaton compositions each earlier than and after his breakthrough as a featured artist on Cardi B’s number-one hit “I Like It” in 2018. So far, he has roped in a minimum of 10 Billboard Music Awards, 15 Latin American Music Awards and three Grammys. Musically talking, the person has legs, and with every passing yr, that velocity solely will increase.

Again in what we are able to name the late Neolithic of American pop music — an old-world musical epoch bordered by the Nineteen Thirties of Louis Armstrong straight via to the infancy of badly lip-synched early Madonna music movies of the Nineteen Eighties — the sport could be to stay to the core enterprise, simply churning out good, finger-snappin’ tunes that radio DJs would put in heavy rotation, shifting the vinyl out among the many nice unwashed. Elvis introduced some Deep South redneck flash to this system of superstar manufacture, however for probably the most half, the lads of music largely stored to the conservative aspect in style. And previous to Elvis, Nudie, the tailor of the Grand Ol’ Opry’s wonderful fits of lights, added one thing. In his “Western” double-breasted peaked-lapel checked go well with, Hank Williams, beneath, sharpened the blade significantly.


Traditionally, once more, among the many males of music on this epoch, there was numerous broad-strokes dabbling in a couple of motion pictures on the aspect, as Bing (Crosby), the good Armstrong himself, Dean Martin, his foremost frenemy Frank Sinatra, Elvis, and latterly Madonna, hilariously and breezily did of their heyday. However that was Music Superstar then.

Pictured beneath on the 2023 Met Gala, Mr. Martinez Ocasio demonstrates a style flip that manages a barometric strain studying on considerably fearless Music Superstar now:

In contrast to actually each different fashionable musician, rapper, Latin entice performer or not, Dangerous Bunny is a (someday) WWE “dwell” wrestler with three matches to his credit score. It is necessary to know that in his native Puerto Rico, WWE wrestling is enormously fashionable, if not fairly AS fashionable on the American mainland. In his most up-to-date WWE Premium Dwell occasion in San Juan initially of Could — an occasion the WWE masterminds referred to as “Backlash” — Dangerous Bunny, who wrestles underneath his stage moniker, received a battle royal referred to as a “San Juan Road Battle” by performing a trademark transfer that — within the elaborate faux-combat narrative to which all WWE matches cleave — Mr. Martinez Ocasio has dubbed the “Bunny Destroyer.” Which means, that the Bunny in query is proprietor/creator/executor of the “Destroyer” transfer, not that the Bunny is the topic of the assault. Once more, it is arduous to think about different three-time Grammy winners increasing their manufacturers on this explicit swim lane.

Not least, Mr. Martinez Ocasio is a person of components within the kitchen as nicely, or at the very least, within the advertising of a kitchen. He’s a nominal restaurateur in Miami, the official northernmost South American and Caribbean capital, within the Brickell district, proudly owning and working the Japanese fusion steakhouse-cum-sushi spot referred to as Gekkō. In English taxonomy the gekko is the genus of a species of wide-footed lizards, the Gekkonidae (which incorporates geckos) and can be utilized to seek advice from a type of knife.

At Dangerous Bunny’s restaurant, managed and co-owned by the redoubtable scenester “Groot” — aka, David Grutman, it is extraordinarily nice steaks and intensely nice sushi to the purpose that Inter Miami president and former Emporio Armani underwear mannequin David Beckham booked in with new Inter-Miami star Lionel Messi and his spouse simply after Messi received his first sport for Mr. Beckham in July, a couple of days after “The Unveil” of Messi (and his new sport shirt) at DRV PNK stadium, pictured beneath.

In different phrases, Dangerous Bunny is on the dagger level of hotness within the restaurant shark pool, as nicely.

Did we point out that Mr. Martinez Ocasio is relationship Kendall Jenner? It is undoubtedly not with out profession threat for anyone to pop into the going-steady queue with any once-or-future Kardashian sister, brother and/or half-sibling. As a result of: It is fairly doable to get snarled in any variety of very time-consuming tv initiatives, journal cowl shoots, and make-up or “shapewear” product launches, to not point out the ironclad breeding duties. As the brand new Mr. Kourtney Kardashian, the previous Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, is discovering at this very second. The manufacturing of precise musical work tends to fade, sadly, as soon as the erstwhile companions have someway gotten a leg snagged within the tractor beam and pulled aboard the Kardashian Loss of life Star.

It is early days but between Ms. Jenner and her rapper, and a saving protection on Mr. Martinez Ocasio’s half is that he has a variety of manufacturing within the pipeline, and he stays a staunch iconoclast. Not the least of that’s that, since Mr. Martinez Ocasio and Ms. Jenner are “simply” relationship and never pregnant (or, not but), Mr. Martinez Ocasio — pictured beneath on the Grammy get together with Taylor Swift in February, after gathering one other gong — does not appear in fairly the hazard of stagnating as that of Mr. Barker.

That stage of protection is, additionally, not simply due to his chart-climbing hits are largely in Spanish. Relatively, it is as a result of he is a polymath, and simply so darn eclectic that any “identification” that folks assume they’ll seize does not actually stick. The flummoxed thousands and thousands will embody the Kardashians themselves. As a result of: Dangerous Bunny does not do one factor. He does 1,000,000 issues without delay, in every single place.

Apocryhpal or not, in line with the legend, his extremely entertaining moniker is meant to have come about throughout childhood style second: He was compelled right into a bunny costume that he didn’t like. By no means at a loss for a approach out, the younger Martinez Ocasio determined to personal the second as ‘the unhealthy bunny.’ Emphasis on the modifier unhealthy, proper? And, whether or not true or not, kudos to Mr. Martinez Ocasio for sticking with it.
