Scorching hot Doha got even hotter with a visit from Puerto Rican pop star Ricky Martin over the weekend.
Martin was reportedly on an unofficial trip to the Qatari capital - many social media users zeroed in on the fact that the openly gay singer would visit a country that punishes homosexuals.
However, the cultured star immersed himself in the culture by posting a photo of himself dressed in a traditional white thobe outside the Museum of Islamic Art.
The photo was even captioned in both Arabic and English.
A representative from the museum told Doha News that Martin was on a personal, not official, visit to the museum, “and so we wanted him to enjoy his visit.”
While Martin might have looked totes different to his usual self, he didn't go unrecognized on the streets of Doha.
Many wandering fans caught a glimpse of their idol while strolling down the streets of Doha, and he was happy to take selfies with all of them!
But the "Livin' La Vida Loca" singer's exploration of the culture didn't stop there. Martin was spotted dining at Lebanese-Armenian restaurant Mamig at the Katara Cultural Village, as well. Yum!
Here are some photos from Martin's fun trip below:
