Bad Bunny revealed the details of his first onscreen kiss being with a man, and how the whole event went down. 

The singer, who was Spotify's most streamed artist for 2020, 2021, and 2022 and recently scooped Billboard's top-performing album of 2022, has recently tried to carve a path for himself in the film industry.

Speaking on his latest role in "Cassandro," the singer shared that he didn't feel uncomfortable kissing a co-star, saying he sees it as a penalty for loving so many women throughout his life.

In his interview with Time Magazine, Bad Bunny discussed his upcoming role in the biographical drama, "Cassandro," directed by Roger Ross Williams, per Insider.

While the singer has starred in multiple films, including "Bullet Train," "My Spy," and "F9: The Fast Saga," his latest film appearance gave him the gift of experiencing his first onscreen kiss.

However, Bad Bunny shared that moment with a male co-star rather than lock lips with an actress as most fans would have expected.

While commenting on the experience, the "La Noche De Anoche" hitmaker revealed that he had no issues doing so, saying it was a punishment for his philandering lifestyle.

He added, "That's the penalty I get for being with so many women during my life."

On why he was completely comfortable with the kissing scene, the 29-year-old rapper said it was because he was acting and "being someone you're not."

"When they asked me for that, I said, 'Yes, I'm here for whatever you want.' I think it was very cool; I didn't feel uncomfortable," the singer recalled the experience.

In "Cassandro," Bad Bunny stars as the lover of Bernal, who plays the lead role in the film. Also among the cast are Roberta Colindrez, Perla De La Rosa as Yocasta, Joaquín Cosío as Lorenzo, Raúl Castillo as Gerardo, and El Hijo del Santo.

On January 20, 2023, the film had its global premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. It will be available on Amazon Studios' Prime Video service later this year.

During his Time interview, bad Bunny was also probed about his rumored affair with Kendall Jenner. Reports about the couple's affair first surfaced in February when DeuxMoi, an Instagram account dedicated to celebrity gossip, published a post alleging the two locked lips in a Los Angeles club.

The rumors were further fueled by multiple sightings of Bad Bunny and Jenner hanging out together, including a double date with Hailey and Justin Bieber and attending Beyoncé and Jay-Z's 2023 Oscars afterparty on March 12.

Rather than address the rumors, the singer went on the defensive against social media users who opined that they would cancel him for his rumored romance with the model.

"When I read comments that say, 'Bad Bunny, now I'm not going to listen to your music,' that's fine. I'm not going to do something else for you to like it. There are plenty of artists, and perhaps you'll find someone you'll like," he said.

His Upcoming Coachella Performance

Bad Bunny at the 20th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on November 14, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV.

Bad Bunny also admitted in the interview that he was more nervous performing at Hiram Bithorn Stadium in Puerto Rico than he would be when he takes the stage as the headline act at Coachella.

"I performed at Azteca. I performed at Yankee Stadium. I've performed every place," said the singer, who is the first Latino to headline the event, per ABC News. "Coachella is going to be another … performance to me. Obviously, I'm excited. I want to do my best."

The artist also stated that his upcoming performance at the annual music festival would only show him being himself.

"There's a lot of megastars that have performed at Coachella before, so I don't want to compete with any of them," he continued. "I just want to be myself. A lot of legends have performed at Coachella but no one like me. There's never been a Benito performing at Coachella. And that's the cool thing for me."
