Maluma Got Hot Working Out, So He Took Off His Shirt

Woofy Colombian recording star Maluma brought the heat to his Instagram yesterday when he threw down a video showing off his arm workout and more.

Grinding out his final bicep curls, the blond 27-year-old was serving up sweat and abs. And let’s face it, Colombia can get preeeeety humid, so ditching the shirt was a good move (especially for his fans).

The short clip has garnered over 3.5 million views in less than a day.

Prior to the gym clip, the “Medellín” singer shared another shirtless snap as he relaxed on a lounger in the sun.

But this is hardly the first time Maluma has caught our eye. The singer has become an accomplished thirst trap on his Insta. Let’s face it – the guy knows how to smolder for the camera.

And the Latin superstar is aware of his appeal to the gay community, including persistent rumors that he might be gay.

But last year, he swatted those away telling fans in a post:

“People are stupid, aren’t they? How can they say that I am gay? If I were gay, I would have already talked about it. The one who said I’m gay, lend me his girlfriend to see how gay I am. You guys make me laugh.”

 

The Latin Grammy Award-winner recently released an EP titled #7DJ (7 Días en Jamaica) in January featuring seven songs along with their music videos on his YouTube channel.

Maluma On Gay Rumors: Lend Me Your Girlfriend To See How Gay I Am

During a recent Q&A session on Instagram with his 49 million followers, Colombian reggaeton recording star Maluma laughed off rumors about him possibly being gay.

Translated from Spanish, Maluma’s reply to the question was:

“People are stupid, aren’t they? How can they say that I am gay? If I were gay, I would have already talked about it. The one who said I’m gay, lend me his girlfriend to see how gay I am. You guys make me laugh.”

Gee, just because the Latin hottie has collaborated with out superstar Ricky Martin and ‘queen of the gays’ Madonna, does that mean he HAS to be gay?

Rock on, Maluma, rock on.
