The two global icons have actually had a long-lasting relationship over the years – one that started because the world’s most famous footballer was simply a fan of the velvet-voiced singer himself.
However, Victoria Beckham’s husband managed to go after his musical best friend, surprising him at the ceremony with a speech in his honor.
The Grammy Award-winning musical artist joked in entertainment tonight that he was going to “kick his ass now, because he hid it from me”.
He added that David really tricked him into thinking he wouldn’t be there, explaining that he wrote me a message about 15 minutes ago saying, “Hey, congratulations.” Sorry, I can’t be here…I’m going to kick his ass.’
Speaking about how the two men met, the Deadpool 2 star shared how: “We met over 20 years ago. I was a fan of his, but now I have him as a brother, as a friend, godfather of my son and just friend of the family.
During the blonde heartthrob’s heartwarming speech to his best friend, David joked, “I learned salsa for one man only, but please don’t tell my wife.”
Acknowledging his impact in the world of Latin music, the H&M model added, “He has done so much to promote Latin music and inspire the next generation of young people.”
Concluding on how he believed his friend of twenty years, David noted, “I’m just getting started,” “I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this recognition.”

When the Tu Vida en la Mia singer took to the podium himself, he told the emotional crowd, “I’ve heard over and over again what it means to be humiliated, it’s absolutely humiliating.” .
He added: “It’s sobering because I look at my family, I look at my friends, my loved ones, my daily conversations, these are the people who shaped me.”
Marc added: “These are the people who created me.”
Staying down-to-earth about his achievement, he joked, “I always say it’s expensive to look so cheap. This basically means that a lot of work is needed to make it look easy, but it’s not.
