Last night's 2013 Billboard Music Awards didn't have many Latino winners, but Selena Gomez and ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber made headlines after she was spotted planting a kiss on him! Gomez was seen kissing Bieber on the cheek after he accepted the award show's first ever Milestone Award (not to mention he got booed while on stage).
So are Gomez and the Biebz on good terms now or is this some publicity stunt?
Miguel's performance at last night's Billboard Music Awards was a hit--literally. The R&B singer tried to jump over the mosh pit during his passionate show of single "Adorn," but ended up accidentally kicking one female fan and landing on top of another! Um, woops.Continue Reading >
This year's Billboard Music Awards are taking place on May 19 and from the looks of their recently released lineup of performers, viewers are in for one good show. Though we already knew to expect a star-studded audience given the impressive list of nominees, now fans can also look forward to some of Hollywood's biggest names taking the stage, including Prince, Justin Bieber, and a few of our favorite Latin stars, like Pitbull, Christina Aguilera and more!
Though I'm eager to see which nominees will snag awards in their respective categories, I'm even more excited to watch all of these amazing artists put on a show. With so many big-name performances scheduled, it's sure to be one memorable evening.
Below, check out which 5 Latin stars will be taking the Billboards stage:

This year's Billboard Music Awards are fast approaching and the list of nominees for the show, which is set to air live next month, has just been announced! I was thrilled to see that some of my favorite Latin artists have been nominated for their work, both in the Latin-specific categories and otherwise.
Singers like Bruno Mars, Miguel, Shakira and the unforgettable Jenni Rivera are all up for awards this year. And though I know just being nominated is an amazing honor, I can't help but hope that we get to see at least some of them win and take home a well-deserved prize next month! Check out who else garnered a Billboards nomination below:Continue Reading >
MTV is no stranger to awkward moments at their award shows, which is why when Puerto Rican actress Aubrey Plaza interrupted Will Ferrell's acceptance speech at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards last night, it was less than amusing. Plaza had awkwardly gone up on stage as Ferrell was talking after receiving the Comedic Genius Award and tried taking the Golden Popcorn statue from his hands. Ferrell seemed surprised by the interruption but handled the incident like a trooper.
Her actions were reminiscent of rapper Kanye West's arrogant and rude interruption during Taylor Swift's acceptance speech during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. And MTV isn't putting up with ANY of that behavior since the infamous incident and kicked out Plaza for her outburst.
I have to say I'm extremely disappointed with the Oscars and the Academy. They didn't include in their tribute to all the actors we lost this past year our beloved Lupe Ontiveros. I was even hoping they might honor Jenni Rivera (since her last project before her tragic death was the movie Filly Brown), but her absence I can understand. But Lupe's? No way! There was also some bad jokes about our stars' accents: Salma Hayek, Penélope Cruz, and Javier Bardem. I want to know how many languages Family Guy creator and Oscars host Seth MacFarlane speaks, really.
I'm not a very sensitive person, there aren't really many jokes that get to me. I actually think it's kind of healthy for us to laugh at ourselves and at our differences. But the fact the Lupe was ignored, that really is sad. So are 41 movies and various awards not enough to make her a respected actress in their eyes? That is truly an insult!
One of the celebs that we're most looking forward to seeing on the Red Carpet tonight is Sofia Vergara, but tonight, reports have surfaced that the Colombian Modern Family star has cancelled her Oscars appearance because she had to be hospitalized and will be undergoing surgery. Oh no!Continue Reading >
The Oscars are this weekend and this year, there are tons of amazing movies in the running for Best Picture. But while the nominees, including Django Unchained, Argo, Silver Linings Playbook and more, are all interesting, entertaining, and well-made, none of them could exactly be described as kid-friendly. Mom of two Maggie Storino took to her Tumblr "Don't Call Me Oscar" to change that.
Recruiting her two female toddlers and one of their little friends as models, Storino recreated the posters for each Best Picture movie starring the kids ... and the results are so hilariously adorable, they'll have you wishing there was an Oscar for Best Leading Babies. Check them out below:Continue Reading >
"Jenni lives...she is quite alive," were the moving words that Chiquis used to accept the first posthumous Premio Lo Nuestro for her mother, Jenni Rivera, who won the Best Female Artist of the Year.
Visibly moved, Chiquis and her sister, thanked God for the strength he's given to help them through La Diva de la Banda's abscence, the media, and especially their fans.
