“I think one of the things that I fell in love with Katy was, she hates when I say this, so I have to word it carefully, but her music was everywhere, right? When I came up it was just on every radio station, but I wasn’t conscious of what I was listening to. But I fell in love with Katheryn, this girl from Santa Barbara,” Bloom replied.

He continued, saying Perry had parents who were “pastors living on food stamps. We’re not talking glamorous Montecito. It’s the side (of Santa Barbara) that no one knows.”

Bloom said Perry also “demands that I evolve, and I feel I do the same for her.”

“And that makes for fireworks, pardon the pun,” he said. “But it also makes for a lot of fun and a lot of growth.”

The two began dating in 2016. They welcomed a daughter, Daisy Dove, in 2020.

Bloom added that he wouldn’t change the relationship for anything.

“I wouldn’t change it for anything, even when sometimes it feels like, ‘How do we do this?’ Because we’ve got these two giant careers and lives, and hers is like a universe sometimes,” he said.

“But I think I just keep coming back to her and trying to hold her hand and walk her back to the sand pit and be like, we’re just going to build a sandcastle.”

‘It changed my whole life’: Why Mambo No. 5 singer Lou Bega is happy to be called a ‘one-hit wonder’

“A little bit of Monica in my life, a little bit of Erica by my side, a little bit of Rita’s all I need, a little bit of Tina’s what I see… I do all to fall in love with a girl like you.”

Everyone knows Mambo No.5. 

Released by Lou Bega in 1999, the undeniably catchy song – a cover of a 1950 instrumental track by Dámaso Pérez Prado – soon became utterly inescapable.

Mambo No. 5 hit number one in several countries, including Australia, and earned Bega a Grammy nomination for best male pop vocal performance.

Bizarrely, it even spawned another cover version, “performed” by animated children’s character Bob the Builder and released two years later in 2001.

So just what happened to the singer Lou Bega? 9Honey Celebrity takes a look at where he is now.

Who is Lou Bega and what is he up to now?

Lou Bega was a stage name.

Bega is a German singer, whose real name is David Lubega Balemezi.

He was born in Munich in the ’70s and is now 49. His late mother was Italian and his father was from Uganda. He lived in Italy, Germany and Uganda while growing up.

The song propelled Bega to celebrity status. Even though his subsequent music didn’t reach the same heights as Mambo No. 5, he’s still a name plenty of people remember today.

He started out his music career as a rapper.

Bega recently performed some shows to celebrate 25 years since the release of the hit song. 

He is also quite active on his official Instagram account and boasts 16,000 followers.

He recently released a book titled Mambo No.1, under his name, David Lubega.

“My Life is better than a movie,” he previously wrote in one post.

In 2013, it was reported that a journalist mixed up Lou Bega’s name with Lou Reed, who had died, and Bega had to say he was still alive but had received condolences from fans.

What songs does he sing?

The success of Mambo No. 5 helped his debut album A Little Bit of Mambo scale the charts in various countries, including Australia, though the other singles from the album didn’t track quite as well.

Bega has released seven studio albums in total, and his most recent was called 90s Cruiser, which was released in 2021.

While some artists would bristle at being seen as a “one-hit wonder”, Bega seems relaxed about it.

Speaking to Vanity Fair on the 20th anniversary of Mambo No. 5 in 2019, he said he ultimately decided the song had been a “blessing” for him, rather than a curse.

“It opened all the doors and changed my whole life,” he said.

As for how the song’s theme – the lyrics list women’s names as conquests – chimes with the attitudes and values we hold today, Bega told the magazine he didn’t think it was problematic.

“It was a different time. I never felt like a predator singing it,” he explained.

“It has a cuteness about it. Even the last part of it says, ‘I do all to fall in love with a girl like you.'”

Other songs he released include Angelina and Sweet Like Cola.

What is the meaning behind Mambo no.5?

Bega told Vanity Fair there are two levels to the hit song, one “superficial level”.

“Then there’s a deeper level. When you actually listen to it as a song, the first verse is about repentance, actually,” he said.

He previously recalled a funny pinch-me moment when he met Jennifer Lopez at the Grammys when he was nominated for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance in the early 2000s.

Speaking to Rolling Stone India, he said: “She turned around and said, ‘Hi Lou, nice to meet you’ and kissed my cheek and you know what at that time I can’t describe what happened to me [laughs].”

“A week before I was watching her on television and here I am receiving a kiss on the cheek from her. It was quite monumental.”

He often shares glimpses of his personal life on Instagram and it seems the family have a strong interest in horse riding.

He previously shared a gushing tribute to his wife on her birthday and wrote: “I can still remember how my eyes discovered yours for the very first time & I couldn’t believe it.”

He is said to have a networth of approximately $AU4.6million.
