"When bored, bleach."

He sparked a Latin pop explosion two decades ago, and even made leather trousers a thing.

And Ricky Martin is not done causing crazes.

Because, although jumping on an existing trend this week - lockdown-induced hair-bleaching, that is - the star has put his own irresistibly attractive spin on things. Because of course he did.

"When bored, bleach"

The 'She Bangs' singer revealed a newly-bleached beard on Instagram yesterday - while keeping his hair up top its natural brown colour.

And the whole thing looks inexplicably amazing.

"When bored, bleach" the music icon in a caption. We're somehow getting Tom of Finland vibes, even though most of Tom's drawings were black and white...

Also, why do we get the feeling if we try this at home we won't end up looking like this?

Responding to the photo, Ricky's husband Jwan Yosef said "babaaaaa" and a heart eye emoji, which is nice.

Ricky and Jwan married in 2017 and are dads to 12-year-old twins Matteo and Valentino, two-year old Renn and two-year-old Lucia.

'Livin' La Vida Loca' singer Ricky celebrated turning 49 (can you believe it?) last Christmas Eve. The words 'fine wine' spring to mind.

Side note: why not revisit 90s classic 'Shake Your Bon-Bon' below, for old time's sake!
