If Miguel Lost His Virginity on a Family Trip, What's Gonna Happen at Mansion Next Friday?
If you haven't already met spacey soul singer Miguel (or pirated his debut album All I Want Is You), here are some fun facts.
He was born 24 years ago in San Pedro, California. He's got black hair, brown eyes, stands 5'7" short, and weighs 135 pounds. He is half Mexican and half black. He likes beer. And his full name is Miguel Jontel Pimentel.
Also, his personal style could be described as "Prince raiding the '80s closet at Eddie Murphy's mansion on Mars."
His syrupy, sweet voice (especially on "Sure Thing") has an almost Pavlovian effect on sexually frustrated females. And he's worked, played, and partied with pop scene VIPs like Usher, Jay-Z, and Eminem.
Finally, if you're into TMI-type stuff, Mr. Miguel lost his virginity at 18 while vacationing with his family. As he confessed to Popdust recently during a very up-close-and-personal video interview: "Oh yeah, I smashed with my whole family there! And they cheered me on ... 'Yeah, get her!'"
Umm ... WTF, Miguel? "No, they didn't do that. I'm sorry."
Miguel with DJ Affect and EFX. Friday, June 10. Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. The party starts at 11 p.m. and tickets cost $15 via wantickets.com. Ages 18 and up. Call 305-532-1525 or visit mansionmiami.com.
