Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are taking their rumored love affair to the Yucatan Peninsula, where the two are spending the first week of 2016 in the company of friends.
On Tuesday, the 21-year-old and his troupe visited the Jungle Maya Park, an eco-park tour, and spent a few hours having fun at the Yaxmuul cenote, an underground sinkhole and natural pool.
Bieber shared several photos of his Riviera Maya vacation, including one of him sitting atop a Unimog truck used during the tour.
According to EFE, when tourists recognized the Canadian star he requested that the park clear them out of the area. He was told it was impossible for them to do that, but was promised privacy during his tour, EFE reported.
Other trip highlights include taking part in a Maya ceremony with a shaman and a group evening with a traditional local meal.
On Thursday he posted a picture of the sunrise from his beach-side accommodation. “Woke up outside to the sound of the ocean. This has to be one of my top memories” he wrote in the caption.
Meanwhile, down in Mexico City singer Madonna was stirring up passions, re-kicking off her RebelHeart world tour Wednesday night with a tribute to late artist Frida Khalo.
“I always wanted to share the stage with Frida My Hero ‼ my Unapologetic Bitch,” the singer tweeted, with a picture from the show.
During the first of two concerts in the Mexican capital, the Queen of Pop dedicated her song “Who’s That Girl” to the Mexican icon — whom she considers one of her most influential artists.
“I want to dedicate this song to Frida Khalo because she has always inspired me, since I was a little girl, because she always looked at herself in her paintings and I do the same with my songs. This goes to Frida,” Madonna told the crowd.
It was not the only reference to the iconic painter. During her performance of “Body Shop,” a young man in the crowd lifted up a shirt with the face of Kahlo on it.
“If Frida Kahlo had been here, she would have also liked to have worked in a body show,” the 57-year-old singer said. She put on the shirt later on in the show.
Toward the end of the show, Madonna also brought up a young woman named Odeth, who the singer called “Frida” for her colorful outfit and flower crown she wore. Together they performed Madonna’s mega hit “Holiday.”
