Girls Who Don’t Show Up Half Naked To Halloween Parties Will Relate To Camila Cabello In This Costume

Everything about this video is so relatable.

Camila Cabello made an appearance on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon and touched on three personal, hilarious, and sweet moments from her life. The first moment is about her very first performance in the fifth grade, “The Little Mermaid” musical. Even though Cabello is huge in the music industry today, when she was younger she admits that she was actually very shy. She never liked singing or performing in front of her family, but had no choice when it came to audition for this musical in the fifth grade. Since this musical was being counted as part of her grade for a class, Cabello gave it all she had during auditions and as a result, was cast as “Shark #2.” Nonetheless, Cabello’s parents were very proud of her and cheered her on as “Shark #2.”

Jimmy Fallon then takes out a Halloween photo from 2016, in which Taylor Swift, Gigi Hadid and other models are dressed in very cute and sexy Halloween costumes. But then on the far right of the picture, there’s Cabello dressed as a fat grandma who can’t find her cat because she sat on it. And that’s classic Camila Cabello for you.

Toward the end of the segment Jimmy Fallon asks about Cabello’s grandma, who is pretty much the #1 Camilizer. Cabello talks about how her song ‘Havana’ is very special to her grandma “because it has such a big part of her culture.” Cabello recalls the first time she played the song for her grandma. “I remember I played it for her. And my grandma has this very visceral way of listening to music. You know, she’s a Cuban lady. She feels it with her whole body. I played her ‘Havana’ and there’s this part where the beat drops, and she was like, ‘AYYYE DIOS!'” So it’s safe to say, Cabello’s abuela is very excited about ‘Havana,’ as well are other fans who have helped get the song to over a hundred million streams online. ??? Get it Camila Cabello!

Turns out Lil Nas X has more than just country rap up his sleeve. The 21-year-old “Old Town Road” rapper has a penchant for literature too.

On Tuesday, the rapper revealed that he’s written a children’s book called C Is for Country.

“I’m dropping the best kids’ book of all time soon!” the rapper shared in a Tweet earlier this week before adding that he couldn’t “wait to share it” with his fans and young readers.

Nas’s children’s book is being published under Random House Kids, a division of Penguin Random House. It is currently available for preorder on their site.

According to the Random House Kids’ website, the book is a story about Lil Nas X and Panini the pony.

“Join superstar Lil Nas X—who boasts the longest-running #1 song in history—and Panini the pony on a joyous journey through the alphabet from sunup to sundown. Experience wide-open pastures, farm animals, guitar music, cowboy hats, and all things country in this debut picture book that’s perfect for music lovers learning their ABCs and for anyone who loves Nas’s signature genre-blending style,” Random House describes in its explanation.

The book is illustrated by Theodore Taylor III and promises “plenty of hidden surprises for Nas’ biggest fans.”

C Is for County comes out Jan. 5.

Netflix’s Newest Musical Teen Hit Series Stars a 16-Year-Old Afro-Latina Newcomer

Netflix’s Newest Musical Teen Hit Series Stars a 16-Year-Old Afro-Latina Newcomer

A new teen series has dropped on Netflix that the internet can’t stop talking about. The newest cultural phenomenon that has hit the juggernaut streaming service is a musical series called Julie and the Phantoms, based on the 2011 Brazilian show of the same name.

The series follows a 16-year-old insecure girl named Julie who has lost her love of music after the tragic death of her mother. But with the help of a (stay with us here) band of musical ghosts she stumbles across in her garage, she soon re-discovers her love of singing and performing. Backed by her band of “phantoms”, Julie confidently takes the stage again, blowing everyone away in the process. ,

But the wacky, heartfelt story-line isn’t the only reason people are excited about the show. The buzz around the show is building because its star, 16-year-old newcomer Madison Reyes, is an Afro-Latina singer-actress of Puerto Rican descent.

Before landing the role of Julie, Reyes was just a regular shmegular Nuyorican girl going to high school in Brooklyn. Needless to say, the process of auditioning for Julie and the Phantoms was both a whirlwind and a game-changer.

“I found out about Julie and the Phantoms through my school. At first I was nervous to send my video in, but after talking to some friends, I sent it in and got a call back,” Reyes told Refinery 29. “From there it was just figuring out when I could fly to L.A. When I finally made it out there, the audition process lasted two days.”

Reyes, for one, understands the burden of her load. “[Julie] is Latin American, she’s got textured hair, she’s a strong and independent female character,” Reyes recently told the LA Times. “As a person of color who wants more diversity [on-screen], I’m kind of scared about the hate comments that I’ve seen other people have to go through, especially women.”

As if having an Afro-Latina actress at the center of a popular Netflix show wasn’t exciting enough, the series is also being helmed by Mexican-American director and all-around legend Kenny Ortega. For those of you unfamiliar with Ortega, he is the creative genius who directed bonafide classics like High School Musical and Hocus Pocus.

Ortega has been publicly effusive in his praise of Reyes. “She has this raw talent that can take on any genre of music, and this promise of greatness that excited everybody,” he told the LA Times. “And yet she’s so relatable and grounded.”

Fans are already calling for a second season after watching the cliffhanger season finale. Reyes, herself, can’t wait to get back in the shoes of Julie. When asked in an interview about where we’ll see her next, she responded: “Hopefully in the next season of Julie and the Phantoms!”. We second that wish.
