You’ve been watching some of these stars for so long you’ll be shocked to hear that they’re still 25 years old or younger. Others, we’ll be watching for the next ten years and they’ll still be in their mid-twenties.

This is our official thank you letter to these Latinos who are making it easier for the rest of us to take up space. We love you all.

1. Camila Cabello, 21

There isn’t a person on this side of the hemisphere that isn’t looking to see what Camila does next. At just 15 years old, she rose to fame on “The X Factor,” and then in girl band Fifth Harmony. She’s gone solo and we’re here for it.

2. Bella Thorne, 20

At just 20 years old, we all have our eyes on Cuban actress and singer, Bella Thorne. She’s starred in “Big Love, Shake it Up,” and you can find her on Freeform’s “Famous in Love” (when you’re not at Coachella hearing her hit those notes).

3. Isabella Gomez, 20

This aquarius babe was born in Colombia and began acting in commercials when she was just five years old. Her fam moved to Orlando when she was 10, and now she’s starring as Elena Alvarez in the Netflix Original series “One Day at a Time.” We see you, boo.

5. Dafne Keen, 13

She’s Spanish, and she speaks it. Dafne Keen (Fernández) was only 11 years old when she played mutant Laura Kinney/X-23 alongside Hugh Jackman. She completely nailed the performance and we’re all looking to her to see what she’ll do next.

6. Demi Lovato, 25

Did you know her full name is Demetria Devonne Lovato? And that she first appeared on “Barney & Friends?!” Lovato rose to fame with her acting skills but stole our hearts with her voice. Please keep it coming, Demi!

Like Lovato, Gomez first made her appearance on “Barney & Friends,” and then starred in Disney’s “Wizards of Waverly Place.” Since then, she’s sold over 7 million albums and 22 million singles worldwide! Slay.

Who, btw, has been through more health problems than any <25yo should.

She’s been diagnosed with a misunderstood disease called Lupus and needed a kidney transplant from her BFF, Francia Raisa.

Caption: “I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made. For more information regarding Lupus please go to the Lupus Research Alliance website: www.lupusresearch.org/ -by grace through faith”

9. Jake T. Austin, 23

You remember mitad Puerto Rican Austin from Disney Channel’s “Wizards of Waverly Place.” What you might not know is that he was the voice of Diego in Dora the Explorer! He’s since starred in The Fosters and we have eyes for what he’ll do next.

10. Kali Uchis, 24

Colombian is everything. For real: she’s a singer, songwriter, poet, record producer, music video director and fashion designer. And she’s only 24. Can’t wait to see the rest of your life play out, girl!

11. Millie Bobby Brown, 14

Spanish born actress, Millie Bobby Brown, has become a household name for her performance in “Stranger Things.” You might have noticed all your friends dressing up as her for Halloween. I’m so freakin’ excited for more productions.

12. Princess Nokia, 25

Puerto Rican rapper, Princess Nokia, is smashing the patriarchy, homophobia and anyone who stands in the way of her poetry. Please listen to her music and we’re wishing her all the congrats for making it to Coachella 2018.

13. Rico, 19

I’m honestly sobbing that he’s already 19 years old. We know him as Manny Delgado in “Modern Family,” but Mexican-American star, Rico, already published his own book in 2012. I have the same goal for by 2070.

14. Victoria Justice, 25

We know her from “Zoey 101,” “Victorious” and a variety of films. She’s talented on the piano, and is also a pop singer. Get it, boricua.

15 & 16. Lisa-Kaindé Diaz and Naomi Diaz, 23

These twin French-Cuban sisters make up the duo Ibeyi. If you haven’t heard them yet, prepare yourself for una mezcla of English, French, Spanish and Yoruba spoken songs that fuses with jazz, beats and other traditional instruments. I can’t stop listening to them.

17. Jason Genao, 21

Netflix Original production swooped up Jason Genao for their new hit series, “On My Block,” which features a bunch of Los Angelino teens in high school and all the conflicts they face. This Dominican-American kiddo hailing from Jersey City is nowhere on the underground internet, and the actual internet is exploding about it.

18. Ronni Hawk, 18

After playing as Rachel Diaz on “Stuck in the Middle,” Ronni Hawk is now a star of “On My Block,” alongside Jason Genao. Can you tell she’s also a model?

19. Camila Mendes, 23

The Brazilian actor is one of the most talked about cast members of “Riverdale” and it is clear why. She has a chemistry with the camera you just can’t teach.

20. Jenna Ortega, 15

The Disney star played the younger sister in “Stuck in the Middle” and it is clear she is up for any challenge. She is even a voice on “Elena of Avalor” so her representation of Latinas in pop culture is impressive.

21. Lauren Jauregui, 21

Jauregui is one of the stars that you hear about outside of music. She is an incredible singer but her work as an activist and voice of minority groups is something to behold.

22. Johnny Lopez, 17

Lopez is one of Jenni Rivera’s children and is on the Univision show “The Riveras.” He made news last year by coming out as bisexual in a very public way on social media.

Now that Fifth Harmony is heading toward a hiatus, it is time to see what happens with the members. Jane is one singer whose next moves will dictate her future.

24. Cierra Ramirez, 23

You might know Ramirez from her role in “The Fosters” but that’s not all she is doing. The actor will be using her voice to bring America Chavez, Marvel’s first queer Latina superhero, to life.

25. Ally Brooke, 24

The oldest member of Fifth Harmony, it seems clear in this photo that Brooke is some what of a fashionista. From the hair to her outfit, she is so put together that designers must be falling over each other to dress her.

These Are 20 Latinos Celebs Who Made It So Big In Hollywood They Got Their Own Star

Thalia Is Honored with A Star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame” Digital Image. Ace Showbiz. 5 July 2018.

Time for a serious question: what makes a celebrity, a celebrity? How do they know they’ve made it? Is it by appearing in the tabloids for the first time? Or is it by winning industry awards? Or, maybe it’s to do with the amount of number of Insta followers they have?

Nah, it’s not any of those things. A celeb knows they’ve made it once they get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! So, we’ve put together a list of 20 latino celebrities that have got a real, bona fide star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. You know, for the next time you’re playing Trivial Pursuit. Or when you wanna impress your Tinder date. 

1. Christina Aguilera

Instagram / @xtina

Xtina got her name emblazoned on the Hollywood Walk of Fame back in 2010, having been awarded a Star of Recording. While she’s got plenty of reasons to have been selected for the honor, at the time of the award, Christina had gotten four number one singles on the Billboard’s Hottest 100 chart, won five Grammys, and sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.

2. Selena Quintanilla

Instagram / @champng_1

Our girl Selena Quintanilla was awarded her Star of Recording only as recently as 2017! Since it was awarded posthumously, Selena’s family attended the ceremony, while her sister helped design the star itself. There’s no doubt that Selena was deserving. Her accomplishments include winning the Female Vocalist of the Year at the Tejano Music Awards for nine yearsin row, as well as being recognized as Billboard Magazine’s “Top Latin artist of the ‘90s”, “Best selling Latin artist of the decade,” and charted in 2016 as the “Top Latin Album of the Year, Female Artist.”

3. Guillermo del Toro

While Guillermo del Toro only received his star recently, it’s been a long time coming. His most recently released film, “The Shape of Water,” alone went onto win Golden Globes, BAFTAs, DGA, PGA and Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Score and Best Production Design.

4. Antonio Banderas

Instagram / @antoniobanderasoficial

Even though Antonio Banderas received his star in 2005 for his achievements in film, that doesn’t mean that he’s not multitalented! He’s known for his acting, directing, producing and singing skills. Fun fact: Antonio Banderas holds the record for the highest salary for an extra, for the part he played in “Gladiator,” where he was paid $50,000. Nice.

5. Gloria Estefan

Instagram / @gloriaestefan

Having received her Hollywood Walk of Fame star in 1983 for her talents as a recording artist, Gloria Estefan is definitely a legend in her own right. She has won seven Grammy Awards and is in the top 100 best selling music artists of all time, with over 90 million albums sold worldwide.

6. Shakira

Instagram / @shakira

Despite the fact that Shakira’s full name is Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, she’s one of the few celebrities awarded with a star on the Walk of Fame that only has one name engraved on the star! 2011 was the year that she was formally recognized for her contributions to the music industry. She’s accrued 12 Billboard Latin Music Awards, seven Latin Grammy Awards and two Grammys over the years for her bangers, which include “Whenever, Wherever,” “Hips Don’t Lie,” and “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).” 

7. Andy García

Instagram / @andygarcia

Andy García’s star for his acting abilities was awarded to him back in 1995. Having been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his part in “The Godfather Part III”, we’d probably know him better for the part he played in “Ocean’s Eleven,” “Ocean’s Twelve,” and “Ocean’s Thirteen.”

8. Luis Miguel

Alright, so we were all in diapers when Luis Miguel got this award back in 1996, but his mariachis and boleros have lived on. He received 5 Grammy Awards by the time he hit 26. That’s estrella material right there.

9. Carlos Santana

Instagram / @carlossantana

Carlos Santana counts more than just a star of recording on the Hollywood Walk of Fame among his accolades. Rolling Stone name him number 15 on their list of 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in 2003. In addition, Santana’s also won 3 Latin Grammy Awards and 10 Grammys. 

10. Sofia Vergara

Instagram / @sofiavergara

Entertainment trade papers have named Sofia Vergara one of the most talented and powerful women in Hispanic entertainment, and for good reason. Her star in television, which was awarded in 2015, comes as no surprise when looking at her expansive acting career, retail lines, producing roles, successful Hispanic management agency and philanthropic endeavors.

11. Pitbull

Instagram / @pitbull

Armando Christian Perez, or as we know him, Pitbull, received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for recording in 2016. Between his number one hits in over 15 countries, nine billion followers between his Youtube and VEVO channels, 70 million single sales and six million album sales, you’ve probably heard his name somewhere before.

12. Ricky Martin

Instagram / @ricky_martin

After jiving away to number one hits such as “Maria” and “La Copa de la Vida,” there’s no way we’d forgive you if you said you didn’t know Ricky Martin. His star on the Walk of Fame for recording came to him a year after he was nominated as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World by People Magazine in 2006. Which is fair – he’s an absolute babe.

13. Zoe Saldana

Instagram / @zoesaldana

2018 was the year that Zoe Saldana was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her contributions to motion pictures. While you know her from movies such as “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Star Trek: Beyond,” and “Avatar,” you probably don’t know that she’s also launched digital platform “BESE” to shed a light on Latino stories in America. 

14. Eva Longoria

Instagram / @evalongoria

Eva Longoria also received her star on the Walk of Fame in 2018, for her influence in television. She’s best known for her role as Gabrielle Solis in “Desperate Housewives,” which was the most popular show in its demographic, worldwide. It aired in 208 countries, with an audience of 120 million views. Imagine having that many people watching you on television every week!

15. George López

Get this: The comedian we all know and love said, “I remember being 15, and walking up and down (the Walk of Fame) and dreaming about what I wanted to do and never thinking it was going to be done,” said the star.

In 2006, he got his wish.

16. Cameron Diaz

Instagram / @camerondiaz

She’s a four-time Golden Globe nominee, Best Actress of the Year by the New York Film Critics Circle, and has also won an MTV Movie Award, so it’s no wonder Cameron Diaz received a Walk of Fame star for her work in motion pictures in 2009. The biggest shame is the fact that she’s formally retired from acting, as of 2014. 

17. Jennifer Lopez

Instagram / @jlo

JLo has made a name for herself as an actress, entertainer, music artist, film and television producer, fashion designer, entrepreneur and humanitarian. So which of these do you think landed her the star on the Walk of Fame in 2013? If you thought it was her career as a recording artist, you’d be right! We’re sure it’s only a matter of time before she gets another star for her other work.

18. Thalía

She’s the “Queen of Latin Pop” and was honored like a jefe in December 2013. She’s truly a Renaissance woman, selling tens of millions of records, authoring four books and acting in star roles in several telenovelas. You should get a star for each category you star in.

19. Rita Moreno

Instagram / @theritamoreno

She’s the first, and only, Hispanic actor to have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony. So, it seems only natural that Rita Moreno received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her work in motion pictures in 1995, right?

20. Marco Antonio Solís

Instagram / @marcoantoniosolis_oficial

Having recorded more than 20 albums, written more than 300 songs, released eight number one hits, and won multiple Latin Grammys, Marco Antonio Solis definitely deserved his award of a star for recording in 2010.

There are some seriously talented and creative Latinos out there – as we can already see from the Hollywood Walk of Fame stars! Are there any Latinos you’ve wished would be awarded a star already? Let us know on our Facebook page – you can find it by clicking on the logo at the top of the page.

People Lost It When They Saw Michael B. Jordan Eating Tacos At A Truck In Miami

@michaelbjordan / Instagram

Here at mitú, we love our tacos. They’re pretty much the perfect food. A soft corn or flour tortilla filled with your choice of chicken, carnitas, beef, veggies and pretty much anything else you can imagine topped with pico de gallo, salsa, cilantro, and avocado? Um, excuse us while we drool. We aren’t the only ones who crave a good taco though.

Celebrities aren’t immune to their siren’s call. The only difference is, they usually look a lot hotter while eating them than we do. 

Take, for example, Michael B Jordan. The “Black Panther” star was spotted getting some late-night tacos over the weekend and we can totally relate to his need for a midnight snack. 

Twitter / @PageSix

According to PAGE SIX, Jordan rolled up on Saturday night at Keith Menin’s Bodega Taqueria y Tequila in Miami, Florida. Dressed casually in shorts and a T-shirt, the actor arrived at the taqueria around 1 am in a black SUV with his bodyguard and four friends. Jordan enjoyed tacos, burritos, guacamole, and frozen margaritas as he chilled out with his friend group. TBH, It sounds like a pretty great Saturday night to us. 

Sources say that Jordan was friendly with other restaurant-goers, flashing his signature smile at the many girls who walked by his table to get a sneak peek of the star. 

“He was being friendly, smiling back saying hi,” said the PAGE SIX informant. “Very low key. Very nice all around.” 

This Jordan taco sighting got us thinking about other celebrities out there, chowing down on tacos while looking amazing. 

So, we decided to compile a list of some of our favorite photos of celebrities taking down one of our most beloved foods. Be warned: this list is sure to make you hungry in more ways than one. 

1. Kylie Jenner

https://twitter.com/KathiaLisette/status/796547273513639940

We don’t usually require a cowgirl hat when enjoying some Tex-Mex food, but it does make for a nice photo op. In this pic, Kylie Jenner wears a sparkly, silver cowgirl costume as she takes down a four-count of tacos. Get your grub on, girl. 

2. Karlie Kloss

TMZ / Instagram

Some people don’t worry about getting messy when eating while others take a more dainty approach. Model Karlie Kloss seems to be one of those delicate types. Still, we have to admit it’s a cuter look than being covered in guacamole. 

3. Chrissy Teigen

TMZ / Instagram

On the contrary, there’s something really attractive about someone who isn’t afraid to go for it. That’s Chrissy Tiegen all the way. We aren’t even going to touch on how suggestive that taco’s filling looks but we’re all thinking the same thing. 

4. Justin Timberlake

Instagram / @justintimberlake

What did Justin Timberlake do when he won a 2014 People’s Choice Award? He went to Taco Bell to celebrate. While we wouldn’t call the fast-food chain our favorite place to grab a taco, we do have to appreciate JT for keeping it real. There’s definitely something sexy about that. 

5. Michelle Obama

Huffpost.com / Twitter

We didn’t realize it was possible to be elegant while stuffing one’s face with tacos, but former First Lady Michelle Obama has proved us wrong. We have to acknowledge the beauty and grace she has while tasting this treat. We could never be this composed mid-munch so we’ve got to give her props. 

6. Selena Gomez

https://twitter.com/BYourselfGomez/status/408405764227608576

Selena Gomez isn’t afraid to eat and there’s something appealing about that. For a past birthday, the singer and actress opted for a non-traditional cake to show off her taco appreciation. Instead of icing, she went in on a taco cake made up of Jake In The Box’s vegan tacos. 

7. Jared Leto

Instagram / @celebritieseatingthings

Next time Jared Leto digs into some scrumptious tacos, we’re going to need him to pull his luxurious locks back into a bun. Still, we appreciate the gusto he’s snacking with. 

We may be divided by differences in customs, beliefs and social standing, but one thing in universal: tacos are delicious.
