Rumors are swirling that Camila Cabello might be making her acting debut on Steven Spielberg’s remake of “West Side Story” and it has Twitter torn. Not because they don’t want another “West Side Story”, but because they are not sure Cabello will be able to handle the role of Maria, the main character. Here’s what happened when the rumor hit the Twitter-verse.

It took one tweet for people to start a debate over Camila Cabello’s ability to act.

It is just a rumor and she would have to audition if she wanted to play the part. The casting call went out just two weeks ago so there is no idea who has and hasn’t auditioned or been called back.

Some people just want to know if she can act.

Fair question.

But Cabello stans did come to her side and showed proof her acting experience.

Cabello did release a telenovela-inspired super mini-film as her music video for “Havana” in October 2017. Does that count as acting experience? You decide.

Some people did have suggestions for other “West Side Story” roles for Cabello.

Okay. They really only suggested Anita. That way she is following in Rita Moreno’s footsteps and people seem more confident in her acting chops to take on that role.

There were some people who don’t want it happen because she isn’t Puerto Rican.

Never mind that Natalie Wood who played Maria in the original film was not Puerto Rican or even Latina playing a New York Puerto Rican.

But there are equally as many people that are super excited to see Cabello in the film.

Again, it is just a rumor. Who knows what will actually happen but it is clear that a Cabello appearance in the film is already causing quite the stir on social media.

The nominations for the 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards are out and a lot of your favorites made the cut. J Balvin, Shakira, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, Maluma and Ozuna lead the pact with the most nominations. There are a couple non-Latino artists on the list but they were a vital reason so many songs went mainstream. In the category for Crossover Artist of the Year, Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran, Little Mix, and Justin Bieber, were all nominated. Bieber leads that pack with eight nominations. All of his awards come from his work on the smash hit “Despacito.”

Let’s take a look at some of the nominees.

“Despacito” is up for six nominations.

The remix version is nominated for Hot Latin Song of the Year; Hot Latin Song of the Year, Vocal Event; Airplay Song of the Year; Digital Song of the Year; Streaming Song of the Year; and Latin Pop Song of the Year.

Billboard reports that every writer of “Despacito” is also nominated including Daddy Yankee, Erika Ender, Luis Fonsi, Justin Bieber, Marty James Garton and Poo Bear.

J Balvin’s “Mi Gente” featuring Beyoncé earned five nominations.

The track is nominated for Hot Latin Song of the Year; Hot Latin Song of the Year, Vocal Event; Digital Song of the Year; Streaming Song of the Year; and Latin Rhythm Song of the Year.

Shakira is nominated for 12 Billboard Latin Music awards tying her with the J Balvin for the most awards this year.

In other amazing news, Shakira — who was suffering with strained cords — has fully recovered and is going on tour in support of her nominated album El Dorado.

Luis Fonsi is nominated for Artist of the Year, of course. 

You can’t have the most streamed song of all time and not be nominated for Artist of the Year along with nine other awards.

El Buki —Marco Antonio Solis — is nominated for Tour of the Year.

After all these years, El Buki is still bringing it. Other nominees include Marc Anthony, Ricardo Arjona, Enrique Iglesias & Pitbull.

Jennifer Lopez is nominated for Social Artist of the Year and Hot Latin Songs Artist of the Year, Female.

Others in her category include Becky G, Natti Natasha, and Shakira, J Balvin, and Maluma.

Justin Bieber has eight nominations.

Justin already has a Latin Grammy in his collection so this would just add to his Latin awards.

The 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards will air April 26 on Telemundo.
