Apparently Andrés Ceballos, the lead singer of the Spanish pop band DVICIO, lives under Salvador Dalí’s corpse and only recently left the comforting warmth of the surrealist’s furs (they buried him with those fabulous garments) this week. Otherwise, how else will he, or anybody, explain why he had no idea Juan Gabriel, one of the biggest, most well-known performers of Latin America, died over the summer? Spanish-speaking media over the world had the news of Juan Gabriel’s death on repeat for about a month straight, yet, somehow Andrés had no idea.
That’s why dude quickly killed the vibe at last night’s Latin Grammy awards in Las Vegas. After announcing Juan Gabriel had won a posthumous Grammy for Los Duo — frankly it’s not his best record — Andrés asked “¿Dónde ha quedado?” (Where is he?), which immediately sucked the air out of the room. To make matters worse, Ceballos followed up with “Oh, he’s not here? Well, the Academy will surely to get this award to him.”
