It WENT DOWN on “Lip Sync Battle” recently as Gina Rodriguez and Wilmer Valderrama faced-off in an epic showdown. Wilmer took us back to the late ’90s with the Backstreet Boys classic “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).” Gina decided to make it a little more exciting by totally owning En Vogue’s “Free Your Mind” — without missing a word or beat.


Wilmer Valderrama slayed as the long-lost Backstreet Boy.

Then she went full rock star on this poor little guitar.

Listen As This Latina Explains The Difference Between Appropriation And Appreciation

“When I was younger, I was constantly mocked for having crazy-thick sideburns. But everything I got made fun of for back then is trendy now.”

TeenVogue recently published a very cool series of videos featuring seven young women talking about their respective cultures’ concepts of beauty, grooming, and adornment. They showed how different styles look when they haven’t been appropriated by others, and what these different looks mean to them.

Leaf McLean, a Puerto Rican Afro-Latina from Brooklyn, talked about her ‘crazy-thick sideburns’ – which she rocks impeccably, btw.

“Being Afro-Latina, you have a lot of hair,” she tells TeenVogue. “When I was younger, I was constantly mocked for having crazy-thick sideburns. But everything I got made fun of for back then is trendy now.”


Leaf goes on to define cultural appreciation (as opposed to appropriation) as “giving credit to a long line of people who have done this for years,” adding that part of embracing her heritage meant embracing her hair.


Check out TeenVogue’s full post here to learn more about Leaf’s style, from her earrings to her braids, plus gain insight from 6 other young women on the stories behind their looks.
