Don’t Tell Her What She Isn’t, Hayley Orrantia Defends Her Latina Roots

She’s saying “Buh-bye!” to haters. Growing up, actress and singer Hayley Orrantia was constantly told she didn’t look Latina enough because of her light-colored skin. Insecurities of not belonging to her beloved culture were compounded by the fact she didn’t speak Spanish.

She hated this. You see, Orrantia is a PROUD Latina. She is orgullosa of her Mexican roots: always checking off the ‘Hispanic’ box on school documents, enthusiastically taking in stories about her great-grandparents from Chihuahua, Mexico, and telling people she is Hispanic every chance she gets.

Orrantia recounts her insecurity of being labeled “not Latina enough” in her Huffington Post blog post, ‘You’re Not Latina!’ She ultimately found her confidence after translating her popular song “Until Then,” into the Spanish version, “Hasta Verte”, which received positive reviews.

Orrantia writes, “Today, I push myself to learn more Spanish because I truly want to speak fluently. […] I live for every Christmas spent with my grandparents where we make our traditional tamales. I cherish my uniquely complicated last name and I will continue to check the box ‘Hispanic’.”

Siempre alerta.. 🐺

Alborán came out this month to mark Pride Month. The handsome singer came out in an emotional Instagram post saying that he is a little bit happier after coming out. It is probably safe to say that gay men around the world are happier to know that he is part of the community. Like, a handsome man who reads poetry might be cliché but that is so fine.

He is a musician so he can play you to sleep at night.

Who needs a white noise machine when you have this handsome man serenading you? Just picture it for a second. You come home from a long day at work. After some dinner, you lie on the couch and relax as Alborán slowly serenades you with his guitar. What a way to end a long day at work.

Let’s take a moment to talk about his legs in those shorts.

That might be shallow but there is something about men in short shorts, right? Clearly Alborán offers so much more than just his physical appearance. However, he does look good in his short shorts.

A man who cooks is a man you want around.

Okay. You have our attention. Cooking is one of the most caring things people can do. It is a special gift that they are handcrafting for you to enjoy and nourish your body.

Lastly, he is not afraid of some heavy lifting and that’s refreshing.

Some times you need things done but physically can’t (or don’t want to). Alborán seems willing and ready to do those chores. It’s the little things, like moving chairs across the room that really make things special.

Who are you currently crushing over?

The world is focused on the growing spread of COVID-19. More than 1,300,000 people have tested positive for the virus as of April 7. People around the world are raising money to fight the spread of the virus and some people are getting creative. Selena Gomez is using her new music to help raise money to fight against the global health pandemic.

Selena Gomez is using her new music to raise money for an organization fighting COVID-19.

The singer announced on Instagram that she was releasing her “Rare” deluxe album. In the same post, Gomez addressed the global health crisis that devastated countries and impacted musicians. She made a personal donation and has pledged to donate $1 from every item sold in her shop to PLUS1 COVID-19 Relief Fund. The fund is going to be helping musicians deal with the impact of COVID-19. The funds will go towards helping musicians with “medical expenses, lodging, clothing, food and other vital living expenses to those impacted due to sickness or loss of work.”

Jaime Camil is raising money to fight against the novel coronavirus.

Celebrities are stepping up and donating what they can to help fight this virus on several fronts. Lizzo is hosting meditation sessions on Instagram and Donatella Versace with her daughter donated €200,000 to a hospital in Milan. Camil is hoping that his partnership with Global Giving through Cameo helps others impacted by the virus.

For $100, you can request Camil to record a personalized message for you or someone you know.

Cameo is an app that connects fans with their favorite celebrities. For a price, people can have their favorite celebrities record video messages. Other celebrities on Cameo include model Aaron Diaz and “One Day at a Time” producer, writer, director, show-runner Gloria Calderon-Kellett.

Who wouldn’t enjoy a fun video from Rogelio de la Vega?

Rogelio de la Vega might be one of the most famous characters played by Camil. He quite possibly made “Jane the Virgin” the funny hit show we all love and remember. It’s even better because it is for a good cause.
