One word to describe yesterday’s Facebook chat with music video director Alfredo Flores: Wow! The young director, who has toured with Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez and worked with everyone from Beyonce to Jasmine V., fielded questions from from his fans all over the world on Latina magazine's Facebook fan page yesterday. Though we imagine how overwhelmed he must have been with the amazing response (we got over one thousand comments in less than 30 minutes!), Flores thoughtfully answered as many questions as he could.
Here are some of our favorites:
Jazmin Cruz: What do you look for in a girl?
I really look for someone who understands my humor because the #BEASTMODE gets crazy a lot of the time. I look for someone who I can have a good time with. I want a girl who can be my best friend at the same time.
Yo’Grandpa Best Fran: What are your favorite movies?
Bad Boys. Aladdin. Lion King. Superbad. Hangover.
Leen Khald: Have you ever tasted shwarma or falafel?
Falafel I had in Israel.

Being able to inspire people. The fact that I can do that is amazing.

Nicole Cunningham: What did you have for breakfast this morning?
A pear. Boring. I know. Hungry? Yes I am. Lol

I love how close they are as a unit. I love the food. I love the music. The culture. I am Latino. I love it all.
Denise Ticoalu: Who do you look up to?
God gives me strength. I will say that. As far as work wise, I look up to the greats who have been doing this for years. Paul Hunter, Jessy Terrero, etc. I just found out Jessy had a Twitter today and I followed him so that's pretty exciting.
Alba: What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?
In 10 years... wow. A decade from now. I see myself directing movies. I see myself having a family and living the dream.
Sydney Gabay: What's the weirdest gift you've ever gotten from a fan?
I wouldn't say this was weird… probably the coolest BUT a fan made me an MTV Moon Man out of aluminum foil. Probably the coolest thing EVER! Haha my first MTV Video Music Award.
AnKa Elena: You miss your old life?
No, I love where my life is now. I MISS MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS back home in NJ. That will never change but my dreams have started to become reality. I wouldn't change that.
