Lauren Jauregui Opens Up About Being a 'Fair-Skinned' Latina

Lauren Jauregui is proud of her Cuban heritage, and wary of people telling her she isn’t Latina enough because of her appearance.

“I’ve had to deal with not being white enough for white people and not being Latin enough for Latin people,” she explained to Entertainment Tonight.

“I’m very fair-skinned with light eyes. At first glance, almost everyone assumes I am purely white.”

She often grapples with people “telling me what my roots are or what I am allowed to claim about myself and my own history.”

“All of us came to this country from somewhere else and I can trace my lineage back to Cuba and Spain,” Lauren continued. “All I know is that I was born and raised in Miami, Florida, to a Cuban family. I spoke Spanish before I went to school. [I] speak it with all of my family members in my household.”

Lauren has spoken out about the media saying she isn’t “Latin enough” in the past, and we applaud her for standing up for who she is.

Lauren Jauregui Posts Inspiring National Coming Out Day Post

Lauren Jauregui Posts Inspiring National Coming Out Day Post

Lauren Jauregui isn’t one to let National Coming Out Day pass without recognizing it, and she penned a sweet post on Instagram today for her LGBTQ+ fans.

“Happy #nationalcomingoutday to all of my lovely queer humans,” she writes, “all of you who have stood proudly in your truth, I am so proud of your courage to love yourself in this world.”

“And to all who are still unsure what that truth may even be, you are not alone and I am proud of you for being exactly who you are. Everyone’s journey is different. We were all indoctrinated with so much hatred of our true selves finding them and loving them sometimes takes a lot longer than we even want to admit.”

“Just a quick little post to let you all know you are loved, important and valuable. You are not who you choose to love but you are the amount of love you give. Keep giving that love to everyone around you, even those that reject you, and keep standing in your truth. We change the world by being ourselves and not allowing others to tell us who that is.”

Lauren is bisexual herself, and never fails to use her platforms to stand up for her fans and the LGBTQ+ community.

Lauren Jauregui Claps Back at Spanish Radio Station Who Doesn't Think She's Latin Enough

Lauren Jauregui Claps Back at Spanish Radio Station Who Doesn't Think She's Latin Enough

Lauren Jauregui didn’t hold back when a Spanish radio station named her as just one of the celebs identifying in the Latino community.

Here’s what the station wrote on their website: “Many point [their fingers] at Bella Thorne or Lauren Jauregui as examples of stars who have jumped ‘on the bandwagon’ of what is trending, which is the Latin market.”

“There are people who find that having a Latino relative doesn’t make you part of the community; that you are [a part of the community] when you were born in that country, you have defended your rights there and you may have even moved to the United States. Those who support this thought believe that if you weren’t born in the country, you can’t consider yourself Latina.”

In a series of Spanish tweets, the Fifth Harmony singer clapped back at the station.

“I feel Latina because I was born in a Latin family. I speak the language, I cook the food,” she wrote. “I have been part of the Latino community in Miami since I was born; I have always had them around me. Anyone could tell you that.”

Lauren adds, “I know that when they see me, they see me as a little white girl that you cannot imagine being Latina. but NOBODY can tell me what MY roots are.”

Preach it, Lauren!

Lauren Jauregui Responds to Trump Slamming Puerto Rico Mayor

Lauren Jauregui Responds to Trump Slamming Puerto Rico Mayor

Lauren Jauregui is not happy with the way President Trump reacted to San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz‘s plea for help following Hurricane Maria’s destruction to Puerto Rico.

The Fifth Harmony member took to Twitter on Saturday (September 30) to share her thoughts after Trump claimed that Cruz was showing “poor leadership.”

“We are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency and the bureaucracy,” Cruz said in a news conference on Friday, explaining that the amount of supplies sent by the government pales in comparison to that of private companies. “I am done being polite. I am done being politically correct. I am mad as hell.”

“The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump,” he wrote on Twitter. “…Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help. They…. want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort. 10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job. The military and first responders, despite no electric, roads, phones etc., have done an amazing job. Puerto Rico was totally destroyed.”

“The same mayor that had to cry on television for her suffering people to even get an acknowledgement from you?” Lauren replied to Trump‘s tweets. “All of the Puerto Rican people have been helping themselves until a couple days ago..I wonder if you’d be so critical if she was a MAN.”

Lauren Jauregui Talks Stigma Around Bisexuality: 'Why Does it Make You Feel Gross?'

Lauren Jauregui Talks Stigma Around Bisexuality: 'Why Does it Make You Feel Gross?'

Lauren Jauregui publicly came out as bisexual in November of 2016, and in doing so inspired her fans to stay true to themselves and to speak out against injustices in the world.

Still, that doesn’t mean everyone is without their prejudices.

“People still talk sh-t,” the Fifth Harmony member told Out Magazine in a new interview.

“But it’s like, why does it make you feel gross?” she continued. “You can watch a kid get bombed and not do anything about it, but you can’t watch me kiss my girlfriend? Go f-k yourself.”


She is, of course, absolutely right. Love is love, and we have no right to dictate who makes people happy.
