MADONNA’S duet pal Maluma says it was a ‘cultural thing’ when he smooched his mum on Mother’s Day.
The 25-year-old Colombian music sensation, who put on a steamy show with 60-year-old Madge at the Billboard Awards, was forced to defend his loving display with his mama.
Hitting back at shocked fans who have dubbed his gesture weird, the Medellín singer, via a spokesperson, said: ‘It’s normal in Latin culture, especially if you’re the only son or the baby of the house.’
‘The beautiful thing is that he [Maluma] has been accepted in the American music market with open arms, and I think, now, where we are in this world with music, it’s really global.
‘Now people are going to be able to see different sides of our culture in different ways,’ his mouthpiece added.
