Jennifer Lopez | Splash News/The Grosby Group

No haterade here.  There are some Latino performers who made it BIG in entertainment.  So big, in fact, that they bought themselves a nice pad (or pads) to celebrate.  

1. Jennifer Lopez

JLo’s got serious game when it comes to real estate…  A penthouse in Manhattan and now a $40 million Bel Air estate, where she has said she wants her kids to grow up.  So nice to have a new neighbor.

2. Sofía Vergara

Sofia and husband Joe Manganiello were married in 2015 and moved into a stunning Los Angeles home.  Sofia’s personal taste is on display all over her Instagram account (@sofiavergara).

3. Selena Gomez

Selena dropped a paltry $2.25 million on this charming place in LA’s Studio City.  So, between producing hit TV shows, recording hit songs and hit songs and starring in hit movies, she can hit the hay.  In style.

4. Eva Longoria

Sleek, airy and stylish, this is where the former Desperate Housewives star curls up with a book on a Friday evening, pours a glass of wine and just chills.  At least, that’s our assumption.  The couches look darn comfy!

5. Enrique Iglesias

Enrique–sorry, Mr. Iglesias–seems like such a nice guy.  He and Anna Kournikova have been dating for over 16 years (!) and now she’s just had twins.  All the better then, that they have this giant home in Miami, complete with tennis court.

6. Bella Thorne

The former Disney star spent about $2 million of that mouse money on a “transitional” home in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of Los Angeles.  It’s got an open floor plan, a wine cellar, and the very cool pool pictured above.

7. Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato paid a bundle for this home in the Hollywood Hills, only to not be able to move in!  A mudslide from the hill above went all the way up to her door, and the city deemed it unsafe.  She’s moved in now, though.  And she’s probably digging those views.

8. George Lopez

Sitcoms, movie roles, and of course, standup…nothing succeeds like success!  And George Lopez.  The comedian moved into this classy property in the Los Feliz neighborhood of LA about three years.  He’s very happy with it, or we think he would be, anyway.

9. Zoe Saldana

The Guardian of the Galaxy and erstwhile Avatar star (more sequels are on the way, they say) dropped some serious coin on this Beverly Hills estate.  I mean, it’s nice and all, but with all these big movies to shoot, how’s she gonna find time to read all those books?

10. David Ortiz

The Red Sox slugger, originally from the Dominican Republic, headed down there to relax at his vacation home following his retirement in in 2016.  And you can rent it when he’s not there!  Cost ya $550 a night.

11. Salma Hayek

Perks of being a famous actor?  Being able to rent out your Hollywood Hills home for about $11k a month.  Famous actress Salma Hayek is married to billionaire businessman Francois-Henri Pinault.  Perks of marrying a billionaire?  Houses in London, like this one.

12. Ricky Martin

Once Ricky was livin’ la vida loca, now he’s just livin’.  And not livin’ so badly either, in this seven bedroom, eight and a half bath shack in Beverly Hills.

13. Shakira

A budding English-language pop star and international superstar in 2001, Shakira bought a modest Miami home turned it into the mansion you see above.  It’s now worth about four times what she bought it for.  Or, at least that’s what she tried to sell it for.

14. Mario Lopez

The former (and forever) Bayside Tiger has now hosted long-running Entertainment News show Extra for seven years.  Not bad at all, when you consider Screech is in jail.  He lives in a Hollywood Hills mansion and loves to, uh, entertain.

 15. Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera’s home in the Hollywood Hills (Sherman Oaks, to be exact) set her back around ten million, which comes with an awesome library.  At least one of those books has to have the correct spelling of “Dirty,” right?

16. Mariah Carey

Sometimes life is hard.  You move out of your giant estate when you break off you engagement to a billionaire and you have nowhere to go.  But then a hero comes along, with the strength to carry on.  And points the way to a $100K a month rental in Beverly Hills.  With its own bowling alley!

17. Jessica Alba

The entrepreneur and actress recently moved into this $10 million Beverly Hills home modeled after a Hamptons retreat.  Jessica really knows what she’s doing: her career is going well, her diaper-empire is rolling; even her husband’s name is Cash!

18. Gina Rodriguez

Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez was so excited to move into her new home that she got a crew together to film it!  No really.  And it looks really nice!

19. Gabriel Iglesias

Gabriel Iglesias has that regular guy appeal.  And like most regular guys, his favorite room is the, ahem, Throne Room.  This one is in a compound he owns near his Long Beach, California home.  It’s just a good place for a guy to be alone.  ‘

20. Andy García

The Cuban-American star of The Untouchables and Ocean’s 11 gets back to his roots at his Key Biscayne, FL home.  Born in Havana, the star now lives about 100 miles from the old country.

The Queen Of Rap Shows Love For The Queen Of Pop And We Are All Freaking Out

The Queen Of Rap Shows Love For The Queen Of Pop And We Are All Freaking Out

iamcardib / britneyspears / Instagram

If you follow the online chatter, it’s no surprise that Cardi B is a megafan when it comes to Britney Spears. So it should be even less of a surprise that Cardi B has come to the defense of Britney during her most recent personal struggles. The Queen of Pop was recently in a care facility for her mental health and it set off a firestorm of comparisons to the 2007 Britney Spears we all remember. Here’s how Cardi B reacted when asked about the recent news about one of America’s greatest icons.

In a recent ET interview, Cardi B came out swinging for Britney and, well, check it out.

Cardi B touched on her admiration for the pop star and even said she loves the idea of a possible Cardi B x Britney Spears collaboration in the future. [gasps in gaytino]

However, things got serious when the topic of Spears’s recent personal struggles came up – including a restraining order against her ex-manager and a stay at a mental health facility.

“I love you and I totally understand,” Cardi B said in a heartfelt message to Spears. “Fame will really drive you insane. Not only will fame drive you insane, but it’s like, once you have money, and everybody just wants to take it from you, or sometimes you just have, like, your own personal problems.”

Both Cardi B and Britney fans were living for this show of genuine support.

It is one of the most succinct ways to explain why celebrities some times snap. The pressures of being famous is a lot for some people to handle. Cardi B understands and even sees hoe it can cause someone to snap and lose all control of themselves.

People were losing it over the Queen of Rap giving the Queen of Pop some much-needed love.

How often do we get to see celebs having one another’s back? Especially with something so sensitive. People are so grateful that a fellow celeb, someone who has experienced the pressures of fame, is speaking up on these issues.

Cardi B then went on to lament the lack of privacy for celebrities and said she sympathizes with Spears. Cardi B also understands that the length of time Spears has been in the public eye is even more of an obstacle.

“When you’re a celebrity, everyone wants to sue you, everyone wants a piece of the money that you work for,” Cardi B continued. “It’s very frustrating.”

The singer also had a fangirl moment when she saw Spears working out to her hit song “I Like It.”

“It’s so dope because I’m a very big Britney Spears fan,” Cardi told ET, before launching into a little bit of Britney’s 2007 hit, “Piece of Me.”

Meanwhile, the Mississippi native checked out of the California facility after she completed her 30-day treatment on April 25.

Spears herself has also tried setting the record straight on some of the gossip that was going on around her. In a recent Instagram post, she says “I just wanted to say hi because things that are being sad have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!! There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team and just so many things crazy things being said. I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me. Don’t believe everything you read and hear.”

This all adds more drama to the #FreeBritney movement.

Even Spears asked the judge for certain adjustments to her conservatorship but didn’t get them. This must make the support from a fellow star that much more special.

We’re rooting for you Britney and truly hope that Cardi B x Britney collab happens soon.

The 10 Year Challenge Is Showing How Gracefully Latinos Age And It’s Beautiful

bellathrone / Instagram

It’s a brand new year with a brand new Twitter hashtag trending. Essentially, what we’ve learned from this trend is that Latinos reverse age and we all have a lot to look forward to. We’re also happy that A-line animal print belts haven’t carried through to 2019.

Friendly disclaimer: all these people are paid to be beautiful for forever. It’s a full-time job. Don’t torture yourself.

Jennifer Lopez

She’ll be at the top of all our lists because this woman is mega on top of her game. She’s a business mogul, producer, mother, and artist. I’m okay with these genes.

While makeup mogul Manny MUA shared the most inspiring story of 2019.

Caption: “GIRLLLL that #10yearchallenge has me SHOOK! 10 years ago I graduated high school…. I was battling so much internally at the time and never wanted anyone to know so I’d bottle it away and pretended I was always happy and perfect… but the reality was that I was angry! I didn’t understand why I was gay, I didn’t want to be gay, that wasn’t part of my “plan” so I’d hide it away and do my best to never show the world who I truly was… leaping forward a decade and WOW what a difference! Not only have I accepted myself, millions of others have as well! Never give up on yourself, it will get better as long as your continue to strive to be the best you that you can be! ❤️ #2009vs2019”

The only difference I see between 2009 Aguilera and 2019 is that she’s going for a bolder lip these days. Way to slay.

Jaime Camil

Your favorite telenovela star seems to have found his salt and pepper look in only the last few years! You age well, Camil.

Antonio Banderas

There is so much to unpack here, that we just won’t. Let’s instead acknowledge that Banderas looks exactly the same as ten years ago.

Justina Machado

Now we begin the series of Latina women who truly don’t seem to age. Is she rocking the same earrings? I’m impressed.

Marisol Nichols

You can’t even tell which photo is of the older Marisol, can you? Truly, this is brujería, which would also explain what is happening in Riverdale right now.

Salice Rose

I’m sorry, what, Salice?! This comedian/beauty queen has it so together, it’s impossible to believe she’s only 25 years old. #Fierce.

Honestly, yes, queen. This bangin’ Salvi poet is La Reina of #bopo, and is embracing all of it with those red lips and gold nails. Te amo.

Snooki

You thought we’d forget about our favorite Chilean-Italian-American? Snooki has graduated from playing in sandboxes to snuggling with her adorable hijos.

Then there are the fitness glow-ups.

Caption: “#10yearchallenge From unhealthy, depressed, and unhappy. To healthy, confident, and living the best years of my life. Life isn’t a race, but a marathon. I started working out and eating healthy as a way to cope with depression, lack of self-confidence and purpose in life. It became my passion, and my medicine. Today my passion has become my career. I am thankful for all the hardships, the set backs, the late nights, the sacrifices, and everything life has thrown at me. Because today I an say I feel and look better at 30 with a toddler, than I 10 years ago.

Make your life count. Do not waste your best years doubting yourself waiting for the perfect moment to act on the things you want the most. Every year brings different challenges. Let’s keep learning, growing, and pushing ourselves. Happy Monday my tribe, I’ll be seeing you at the LA Fit expo January 26th-27th. Cannot wait to see you there.”

Gisele Bündchen

While we’re always ready for more Gisele pics, the supermodel gave us food for thought instead.

Caption: “#10yearchallenge is a great opportunity to reflect. Have you ever stopped to think where you were 10 years ago? What were the dreams you had for yourself and for the world? What are you most proud of today? If you ask me, I would say that, besides creating and nurturing my own family, I´m also very proud of the Agua Limpa Project, that my family and I created 10 years ago to help to better the quality of the water in my hometown – Brazil. In the beginning it was challenging, but we had a dream and a deep desire to be helpful. 10 years later, I’m happy to say that we did it! We planted more than 40,000 trees on the river banks that not only improved the water quality and helped to preserve the area for the future generations but also created an ecological corridor that brought wildlife back! It´s incredible to see when we give Nature a helping hand, she does the rest and thrives. The more we take care of Nature the better she can take care of us. We are all connected.”

Nothing is worse than seeing Dominicana baseball hero Sammy Sosa bleach himself white. Hopefully, the next ten years are all about self-love and Latino pride.
