Livin’ La Vida Lipstick: Ricky Martin MAC’s on Nicki Minaj in new cosmetics advert

M·A·C Cosmetics has unveiled its latest Viva Glam! Advert starring Tigresa del Oriente ripoff Nicki Minaj and Puerto Rican singing sensation Ricky Martin.

Benefiting the M·A·C AIDS Fund which was created in 1994 by company founders Frank Angelo and Frank Toscan as “a grass roots effort to make a difference in the world with a community outreach for [people affected by] HIV/AIDS,” Viva Glam! Has raised over 200 million dollars to date.  

This, of course, is not the first time the boricua crooner has lent his name to an advertising campaign.

Back in 1984 when he was a part of Menudo, a fresh-eyed Martin lended his star status to a multinational Pecsi Pepsi campaign.

Notice how the then 13-year-old pop star in training hesitated to put a chile in his mouth:

Oh…what a difference 27 years makes.
