Here Are Some Amazing Unearthed Yearbook Pictures Of Your Favorite Latino Celebrities

 
So many of us hope and pray our yearbook photos never see the light of day, but we think fame and stardom exempts you from that luxury. All I’m gonna say is, pay attention to the hair. It is the most important part of any yearbooks picture so keep that comb on deck, and that’s a fact.

1. Cardi B

2. Christina Aguilera

In 2001, junior America gave a big grin for her El Camino High School photo.

“My [four] sisters dried my hair for me until I was 14, and then I finally started drying my own.”

4. Bruno Mars

Is it just me or does baby Bruno Mars actually have a halo around his fro? Couple that halo with that tux and it’s safe to say that Bruno has been ready for his moment in the limelight.

5. Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez was home schooled, and by the time she was ready to graduate, her character on “Wizards of Waverly Place” was too. She didn’t walk a stage for her personal GED, but took her on screen walk across the stage as her very own, too.

6. Mario Lopez

How badly do you want to pinch his cheeks? I think it’s the dimples. “Saved by the Bell” and “Extra” host graduated from Chula Vista High School in 1991.

7. Jennifer Lopez

Jenny from the Block graduated from Preston High School in the Bronx. How bizarre is it to see J.Lo without her signature long locks? That’s because she spent her high school years doing gymnastics, competed nationally for her track team and played softball.

8. Mariah Carey

Yes, Eva Longoria is a Mexican American beauty queen. She was also dishing spicy chicken sandwiches part-time at Wendy’s for most of her high school years.

Eva Mendes has not aged, and I have no words. Girl grew up in Glendale, California, so maybe it’s the California sun.

12. Zoe Saldana

This is the face of a young Zoe Saldana right after she moved from the Dominican Republic to New York to start off her junior year of high school. Someone make a meme.

See that big smile? That’s because during her senior year, she knew she’d appear on the cover of “Seventeen” magazine’s July 1990 issue. Talk about making your high school bullies jealous.

Mariah Carey Got Her First Dose Of The Vaccine And Made It Into An Iconic Moment

Mariah Carey Got Her First Dose Of The Vaccine And Made It Into An Iconic Moment

Vaccines are rolling out across the country. People are getting their shots so life can finally start getting back to normal after a year of quarantining and social distancing. Mariah Carey let her fans join on her first shot and it became iconic.

Mariah Carey got her first shot of the vaccine and hit that whistle note.

More and more Americans are finally getting vaccinated to get the world back to normal. More than 160 million vaccines have been given in the U.S. and people are starting to see the results. Life is slowly getting back to normal for families who haven’t seen each other in years.

The singer was “excited and nervous a little bit” about getting the vaccine. Her demeanor showed just how impactful it is for people to do their part to get us back to normal.

True to form, Carey was in her camera-ready pose when she was getting ready.

People receiving the vaccine are told to keep their arm relaxed but Carey clearly isn’t made for that. How do you just turn off your star charisma?

It’s important to keep your arm relaxed while you are getting your vaccination to save you from the pain. If your arm is tense or in an awkward position, it is more likely to move during the jab, which can be painful. Listen to your nurses.

Some people are very curious how someone so young got the vaccine.

President Joe Biden announced that all states must make vaccine eligibility open to all adults by April 19. Some states are allowing people as young as 16 to get vaccinated. This is an accelerated deadline from the previously called for May 1. President Biden has worked hard to push the vaccination rate up and he has delivered on his promises for various vaccination deadlines.

People want to know if the vocal skills are a side effect of the vaccine.

There are a lot of conspiracy theories circulating about the vaccine. Some people believe that Bill Gates is microchipping them using the vaccine. It is a conspiracy that persists despite people definitively debunking the theory.

Congratulations, Mariah!

The world is eager to get back to normal and the vaccination rollout across the world is going to get us there. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is slowly releasing new guidelines about what fully vaccinated people are able to do.

For example, it is safe for fully vaccinated people to gather in small groups indoors without masks and social distancing. Fully vaccinated people can also fly on airplanes without much risk because of the effectiveness of the vaccine.

Cardi B Says She’s Planning on Releasing a Line of Hair-Care Products For Afro-Latinas

Looks like Cardi B is following in Rihanna’s footsteps and getting into the beauty game! According to a recent Instagram post, the Bronx-born rapper is going to be releasing a line of hair-care products for Afro-Latinas this year.

“This year I will be coming out with a hair[care] line that I been working on at home for my hair and my daughter’s,” Cardi announced on Instagram on Tuesday.

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib)

She explained that the decision to make hair-care products for Afro-Latinas was inspired by her realization that it’s “time for people to educate themselves on nationality, race and ethnicity.”

“Being Hispanic/Latina don’t make your hair long, don’t make your skin light, or don’t make your face features slim, [e]specially Latin countries from the Caribbean islands,” she explained further. “DNA [has] something to do with your hair, not your nationality.”

As many Latinos know, many non-Latinos are uneducated about the diversity of Latinidad. People expect all Latinos to look like Eva Longoria or Salma Hayek. But as we know, Latino is an ethnicity, not a race. Latinos come in all different shades, with vastly different features.

The comments on Cardi’s post were elated at the news that she would be releasing hair-care products for Afro-Latinas.

“Thank you!!! I’m Panamanian and they act like we don’t exist!” wrote one fan.

“Hair doesn’t have ethnicity. It has texture. It’s not black hair or white hair. It’s curly hair or straight hair. Kinky hairy or curly. 4a or 4c. People just generalize it and don’t understand,” wrote another.

On Twitter, another fan wrote: “Ok fav let’s talk about the hair care line you talking about so I can buy it and I won’t have to keep making the mask, forget everything else.”

Cardi’s decision to make hair-care products for Afro-Latinas came from (what else?) a Twitter argument.

When a Twitter user decided to challenge Cardi’s Blackness (again). The argument started when a Twitter user was claiming that Cardi’s hair pattern disqualifies her from being considered “Black.” So Cardi took it upon herself to educate her followers about the existence of Afro-Latinos. She also gave her followers a history lesson on the Dominican Republic.

The conversation got so frustrating that Cardi tweeted: “I think I’m going to do a video of different Hispanic people or Latin people or w.e. the correct term is nowadays. Cause people be thinking that every Hispanic is Mexican or something and must have the same hair texture, color, and features.”

Cardi B has always been passionate about hair-care. Last year, she shared a DIY hair mask recipe that she uses on her and Kulture’s rizos.

The hair mask consisted of argan oil, castor oil, olive oil, and mayonnaise. Since then, the at-home hair mask has gained a small but vocal fan club online.

If her hair mask recipe is a preview for things to come, we can’t wait to buy Cardi B’s hair-care products for Afro-Latinas.
