Pablo Maximiliano Miguel Coronel Vidoz, also known as Pablito Ruiz and, later, Pablo Ruiz,[1] born on May 4, 1975 in Buenos Aires, Argentina,[2] is a singer, actor, and dancer. In 1989, when just 14 years old, he came to prominence with songs like "Proud Girl", "Lady Lady", "Linda",[1] and his cover of Oh Mama,[4] originally recorded by the band Selena y Los Dinos.

After Ricky Martin came out as gay at the end of March 2010,[5][6] Ruiz claimed in a TV interview with Viviana Canosa to have kissed Martin at a party in Mexico when he was 17 and Martin was around 22. Martin was working on the TV show Muñecos de Papel in Mexico at the time.[4][7]

In 2014, the Australian band Tame Impala were accused of plagiarising Ruiz's song 'Océano' for Tame Impala's single 'Feels Like We Only Go Backwards'.[8] Ruiz responded by saying he would consult his lawyers about possible legal action, although the accusers later claimed it was a joke.[9]

Has sold more than 4 million albums.[citation needed] In his last incursion in music, he interpreted a song for the 2015 presidential candidate Daniel Scioli, [10] (just one heartbeat).
