In Negative Bunny’s earth, fashion is fluid, totally free and genderless.
The Grammy-successful reggaeton star opened up to GQ about his ever-evolving type in an job interview published Tuesday. Undesirable Bunny, born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, said he does not follow a rulebook when it arrives to his fashion perception, and this features dismissing standard gender norms.
“It is dependent on my point out of brain,” Bad Bunny reported of his model. “Everybody has to come to feel snug with what they are and how they truly feel. Like, what defines a guy, what defines becoming masculine, what defines being female? I truly simply cannot give outfits gender.”
He continued: “To me, a dress is a dress. If I don a dress, would it stop being a woman’s gown? Or vice versa? Like, no. It is a costume, and which is it. It is not a man’s, it’s not a woman’s. It’s a costume.”

For the reason that of the overemphasis on masculinity within Latin lifestyle, Negative Bunny suggests his defiance of gender norms as a Latin tunes artist has created a polarizing general public reception.
“Latino tradition is really machista,” Lousy Bunny told GQ. “That’s why I imagine anything that I’ve carried out has been even additional shocking. … Urban Latin new music, reggaeton, is a genre the place you have to be the manliest, the baddest. Which is why it is the most surprising way too.”
The 28-calendar year-aged reported he inquiries the nature of these gender-based limits in the reggaeton genre. “If I dress this way, I can’t sing this way? Or if I dress like this, I just cannot hear to this form of tunes?” he explained.
Terrible Bunny has also tackled difficulties of gender inside his audio, with the lyrics of “Yo Perreo Sola” broaching the issue of violence and sexual harassment in opposition to ladies.
But in the end, the “Dakiti” rapper claims he’s featuring a diverse point of view in his music, rather than forcing a information.
“It’s not like I’m generating a sermon. I’m going to a club or becoming with buddies. It’s normal,” Terrible Bunny mentioned. “So, when anyone listens to it … and it variations their intellect a little bit, it is not like they are heading to be a new person, but they acquire something. They could begin accepting items that they hadn’t.”
