Belinda Kissed ‘Drag Race’ Star Valentina At Madrid LGBTQ+ Pride

Belinda made sure her performance at Madrid Pride yesterday (July 6) was extra gay. Towards the end of her set, the Spanish pop star shared a kiss with RuPaul’s Drag Race star Valentina and actress Lola Rodríguez.

Belinda was one of the performers at Mado Madrid Orgullo. During her performance, she wore a black bodysuit with multi-colored hair that gave off rainbow vibes. One fan wrote that Belinda’s hair reminded them of her character Silvana from the early aughts telenovela, Cómplices Al Rescate.

To close out her set, Belinda performed her EDM banger “Las 12” sans featured artist Ana Mena. In Mena’s place, Belinda brought out Mexican-American drag queen Valentina and Rodríguez, her co-star on Netflix’s Bienvenidos a Edén. In a surprise moment, Belinda shared a kiss with Valentina and immediately after kissed Rodríguez as well. They spread the love around when Valentina and Rodríguez also kissed onstage. The crowd in Madrid went wild for the moment.

The reactions from the fans about the kiss were pretty fun and hilarious. One fan compared Belinda’s onstage kisses to the same-sex kiss from Disney’s Lightyear movie that some parents in a huff. With a laughing and crying emoji, they wrote, “Belinda after going to see Lightyear.”

Belinda’s kiss also drew comparisons to 2003 MTV Video Music Awards where Madonna kissed Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. One fan wrote, “Belinda kissed two women at Madrid Pride, recreating Madonna’s kisses [at the MTV Video Music Awards.” What a high compliment for Belinda!

Belinda’s time with Valentina and Rodríguez didn’t end with the performance. She celebrated with them all throughout the night, including performing “Las 12” with them in a club. “We did it!” she shouted with them in a video in the back of a taxi cab. It was great to see Belinda support and highlight LGBTQ+ talent like Valentina and Rodríguez during her Madrid Pride performance.
