I have yet to meet a Latina that doesn't consider listening to music a form of therapy. Most of the time, it includes some form of dancing, even if that means moving our feet while our butt is glued to a chair. Or discreetly tapping our fingers when nobody else is moving. That happens to me every time I hear certain tunes. I can't help it. It doesn't matter if I'm happy, worried, or even very sad. There are songs that can send every bad feeling away and make me feel like dancing, even if it's only while they last.Continue Reading >
The health update on Vicente Fernández and his condition is here--and now I'm really worried! The icon himself announced that one of his many health problems is forcing him to stay off stages, through a press release that his rep read on his behalf. With it he confirmed rumors that the Charro de Huentitán will not be able to attend the famous fair in Fenaza. Oh no and to think this was his goodbye tour! Although the message is positive, I'm afraid his condition is way more serious than he's letting on. Here's why ...Continue Reading >
I'll be the firs to admit that I almost died when I saw this photo of a beat-up Ricky Martin on his Instagram account. OMG! Just look at him! That droopy red eye, his face which looks sad and angry at once. Thankfully he sort of explained what was going on ... and it's not really what you're thinking.Continue Reading >
Last night was the Premios Joventud 2013 and it was chock full of surprises. Marc Anthony, who was recently on the receiving end of racist Twitter remarks for performing "God Bless America" at the MLB All Star game, bravely shut down his haters and put on an excellent performance. His ex-wife Jennifer Lopez also performed at the ceremony, and their respective significant others were on hand.

Even before I realized that today is the 10th aniversary of Celia Cruz's death, one of her songs was playing in my head, as the soundtrack of a difficult morning. "Ay, no hay que llorar, que la vida es un carnaval y las penas se van cantando (Ay, it's better not to cry, because life is a Carnival, and the sadness goes away by singing)," says her song "La vida es un carnaval."
Don't freak out! It was not one of those weird coincidences. I've loved La Reina de la Salsa's music since I was a little girl. My mother goes as far as swearing that I recognized her tunes even in her belly. An obvious exaggeration! But since it's imposible to be sad or still while listening to Celia, I tend to invoke her music when I'm stressed out or upset. Even more in a day like today when we all remember how much she gave us and how much we miss her.Continue Reading >
I've always believed that we humans aren't alone in this big, huge universe, and Chris Wedge, the director of new animated movie Epic (hitting theaters today), obviously agrees!
Epic tells the story of a tiny micro-universe in the forest ruled by the lovely Queen Tara (voiced by Beyonce), who is in charge of keeping their world in perfect balance. Of course, there are bad guys upsetting this natural balance, in this case, it's a group of malicious forces called Boggans that try to destroy the harmony of Queen Tara's kingdom.
But, there is one BIG surprise!
Latinos continue to take over primetime TV as Fox just announced that Paulina Rubio alongside Kelly Rowland will be the new judges on The X-Factor this fall. The talent show which already has Demi Lovato as a judge will now have TWO high-profile Latinas on board and that just means that things are going to get interesting.
Simon Cowell won't know what hit him until he sees the three ladies go head-to-head during the season. We can't wait!Continue Reading >

As women we put pressure on ourselves to appear as young as we can because it means we're more desirable. And although many ladies don't give themselves enough credit, most of them more than likely already look younger than what they really are. But there's more to a woman than her age--as many Latina celebrities have proven to the world.
Age is nothing but a number to these stars who look better than many younger starlets and have kicked butt while doing so! Take a look at the ladies we've rounded up who are no longer in their 20's but continue aging like fine wine.Continue Reading >
The Billboard Latin Music Awards 2013 started with a presentation by Daddy Yankee which wasn't really all that. Right after, though, Telemundo delighted viewers with one of the evening's hosts, the beautiful--but very nervous--Ana Barbara, who wore a tight and very low cut black dress, which I'm sure astounded more than one person. The Mexican regional music artist, was joined by television host Daniel Sarcos and the handsome soap opera actor Juan Soler.
Although Don Omar won big taking home 10 awards, Jenni Rivera was the most important artist of the night. With the six posthumous awards she received tonight, the Diva de la Banda is the second female artist with the most Billboard awards after Shakira.
