Gloria Trevi and Alejandra Guzmán, two singers who are known for being kick-ass, assertive women, debuted a brand new single and music video together titled “Cuando Un Hombre Te Enamora.”

While the song itself is definitely pop, and a departure from the heavier stuff than they’re known for, the music video itself is pretty edgy. Billboard reports that the video was filmed in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, and was directed by Alejandro Pérez.

The storyline is kind of like a telenovela, in the sense that it features a love triangle. Think of “Dos Mujeres, Un Camino,” but with better clothes.

The two women text the a**hole (played by Rafael Amaya of “El Señor de los Cielos” fame) who has been playing both them and tell him to meet them in the desert. The guy clearly knows that both women know about each other, but goes to meet them anyway.

Before Guzmán and Trevi confront the cowboy, they bond by dancing in the desert.

Seeing these two ladies dancing together is so crazy… in a good way!

When the guy finally does show up, the ladies try to poison him!

This needs to be a telenovela ASAP! There’s too much drama to inhale in 4 minutes. If you’re not familiar with these wild ladies, let me give you a brief refresher on who these talented artists are.

Alejandra Guzmán made her debut as a singer in 1988, and she really changed the game for female artists in Mexico.

She released 14 albums since then and isn’t slowing down by any means.

In Mexico, Guzmán is considered as bold and as outspoken as Madonna.

One of her big hits, “Hacer el Amor Con Otro,” which translates to “making love with another,” was very controversial back when it was released in 1991. Female artists rarely sang so openly about sex.

Gloria Trevi is also a breakthrough artist, and is considered one of the most risqué female singers.

Trevi made her debut one year after Guzmán, and right off the bat, you knew she was unlike anything you’d ever seen before.

Her sound drew influences from hard rock and her look matched her intense music.

She wore her hair teased up high and had tattered clothes. She was basically every mother’s worst nightmare, which is why little girls idolized her.

For decades, Guzmán and Trevi proudly showed off their rough edges.

They were assertive and didn’t back down when it came to singing about taboo subjects. It makes so much sense that the two women responsible for bringing feminism to Rock en Español would team up for this new song.

Billboard also reports that the two ladies will be releasing a joint album titled “Versus,” and will also go on tour together in June.

Amazing!

At Just 6 Years Old, She Told Her Parents To Put An End To The Birthmark Removal Treatments She Was Going Through

Mariana Mendes was born with a nevus birthmark on her face and she is flaunting it. At first, her family was determined to find a way to get rid of the birthmark covering her face for fear that she would be bullied by kids in school.

But when she was 6 years old they gave up – and she is glad because she loves it. Now, Mendes is on a mission to share her story with the world and encourage others to love their own nevus birthmarks regardless of where they are on their bodies.

Mariana Mendes is using her own nevus birthmark to encourage people to embrace and love their own.


According to Nevus.Org, nevus is a broad term that can be used “describe virtually any mole or birthmark.” For Mendes, she has a congenital melanocytic nevus which simply means she has an area on her body with heavy pigmentation that has been present since birth, a.k.a. a birthmark.

Mendes, who is from Juiz de Fora, Brazil, told O Globo that her parents started to treat the birthmark with lasers in São Paulo when she was a young girl. When she was 6 years old they asked if she wanted to continue the treatment. She said no.

Mendes says that she doesn’t care what people think about her birthmark.

“Some people do like it, others don’t, some love it and others hate it – I get a very mixed response,” Mendes told Metro. “I have been told by a few people that it’s ‘ugly’ or ‘strange,’ but it doesn’t bother me that’s just their opinion and I think it’s beautiful.”

In fact, Mendes thinks that her nevus actually sets her apart from the rest of the people out there.


“I feel more beautiful and totally different from other people because I have a nevus,” Mendes told Metro. “Having a nevus that is as large as mine is not common, so of course there are many people who stare and who don’t like it, but I don’t care. A lot of people ask me about my birthmark, sometimes they think it’s makeup or a tattoo but I don’t mind and explain it to them.”

Mendes is using her experience with her nevus to encourage girls to embrace their birthmarks despite what some might tell them.

Part of how Mendes is getting the message of self-love and acceptance out is by a series of photo shoots she did. She hopes that by sharing these photos with the world, women everywhere will love themselves, blemishes and all.

Mendes did tell O Globo that she is happy she hasn’t had to change her appearance too much because her nevus isn’t hindering her health, but she does get it looked at.

“I have not had any changes yet, and the nevus does not harm my health,” Mendes told O Globo. “If it’s stable, it’s because it has no sign of risk.”
