And how did you -- What is Maluma?

How did you come up with that?

-Okay, my mom's name is Margie

So I took the first two letter of each name

and I put it as my artist.

[ Audience aws ]

-But question. I have a question for you.

-Sure, go ahead.

-What would be the Maluma name for you?

If you take parents and --

-My sister -- My mom's Gloria.

My dad's James and my sister i Gloria as well.

-So -- [ Laughter ]

-It's so embarrassing,

but my mom and dad is Jim and Gloria,

and me and my sister were Jim and Gloria.

How you doing, man?

How you doing? Yeah. I'm doing good, Maluma.

but we didn't get a chance to speak.

But I saw you from afar.

You were at the Met Gala.

Dude, look at this. Look at this stud.

[ Cheers and applause ]

Look at that. Holy moly.

Stud. Who is this? Who are you wearing?

-Well, that was Keno.

That was assigned for me and Jeremy Scott.

He did it for me.

That was such an amazing experience, man

-Have you ever been?

-No, that was my first time.

-What did you think?


[ Laughter ]

-Interesting, right? -Very interesting.

But to be honest, man, I had such an amazing time

-Who did you sit with?

-I was there with Gwen Stefani Katy Perry, of course, Jeremy.

Stella Maxwell. That was amazing.

The table was full of stars. -Yeah.

Well, Katy Perry -- -Katy Perry, yeah.

-She kind of stole the night, right?

I mean, she was -- Well, I mean, in a great way

She came dressed as a chandelier.

-Her outfit was amazing.

A chandelier and after that a hamburger

[ Laughter ] -Yeah.

She started off the night as a chandelier.

[ Laughter ]

Which I love Katy Perry for doing that.

-Hey, Katy, I love you.

I'm not making fun of you.

-No, no, no. No, no. I love her. I think she's great.

But this is even better.

She topped this by changing into a hamburger outfit.

[ Laughter ]

This is the real deal. [ Cheers and applause ]

-Dude, I love it. -I love it too.

Did you see the video of her with J.Lo in the women's room?


-She was changing into her hamburger outfit.

-That was -- you know, that wa so crazy

because the chandelier was her first outfit, right?

So, when we went to the table, she wasn't there with us but -

so I was asking to everybody "Hey, where is Katy Perry?

Everybody was like, "No, she's changing."

Changing? She was just wearing a chandelier?

-Yeah. What's she changing into? Yeah.

How can you top a chandelier

-Exactly, and then she came to the table, man,

with this huge, huge hamburger outfit.

[ Laughter ]

And I was -- and I was like, "Wait. Wait a second.

Where's she gonna sit?"

[ Laughter ]

Like, we don't have a chai for that hamburger.

[ Laughter ]

-How does one sit dressed as a hamburger?

-So, that was so crazy, becaus she sat down on the ground

And she just kept there for the whole gala.

[ Laughter ]

-No way. -Yeah, on the floor.

Just chill, eating.

Well, she was -- she was looking like a hamburger.

I was about to --

-You were about to eat the - yeah, yeah, yeah.
