Gloria Estefan’s Daughter Is A Chip Off The Old Block

HuffPo has a video series called Talk to Me, where people interview their (usually famous) parents. The most recent participants in the series are 59-year-old Cuban singer Gloria Estefan and her 22-year-old daughter Emily, who is a songwriter, drummer and singer.

The point of the series is to encourage intergenerational conversations about the big, important life questions. Past participants have included Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington and her daughter Christina, Lionel and Nicole Richie and even Oprah with graduates from The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls. Qué wonderful, no?

Do yourself a favor: watch, listen and learn from the interview porque as her own daughter points out, Glora Estefan is a “badass tough woman.” She has led an incredible life filled with triumphs, but most certainly not without difficulties or even tragedy. Sheesh, in 1990, the tour bus she was on was involved in an accident that ended up breaking her vertebrae. Her prognosis for a full recovery was slim to none, but she gave her recovery effort all the ganas she could give and she made what many called a “miraculous” recovery. Qué milagro, ni qué nada; it was all badassery on her part.

Keep an eye out for a sweet mom moment in the interview when Emily asks her mom if she still has goals and dreams and Gloria turns it around so she can not-so-humble-brag about her daughter. Gloria says,  “What’s more exciting for me is to see you… about to embark on this journey that I know since you were a kid that you’d get up every morning and you’d go to all three instruments, you know the drums, the piano and the guitar before you went to school. You kept your GPA 4.0, thank you very much.” Awww!

The most motivating part of the interview is when Gloria gives “growing humans” (that’s you) the following advice: “I don’t think you ever stop growing. Find what you love, what you love to do, because if you work at what you love to do, then it doesn’t feel like work.” Yass! #Goals, right there.

Press play, then let us know what you think.

Someone Hacked Demi Lovato’s Nude Pictures And Leaked Them On Snapchat

As if former Disney star Demi Lovato hadn’t already had a hard enough year, outlets have reported that the actress and singer’s personal images were hacked and distributed to the world this week. According to a report by the Los Angeles Times, Lovato’s personal Snapchat account was hacked on Thursday and released a series of nude photos of the actress. 

Fans noticed the nude images on Lovato’s swipe up SnapStory after an odd message had been added to her story earlier that day.

“Join this discord server for my nudes,” the post, which had stayed up for nearly a half-hour read. The message also included a claim by the hacker to have access to a sex tape of the singer. According to fans, the story provided a link that led to various nude images that are supposedly of Lovato. 

Lovato has yet to speak out about the attack, however, her fans have come to her defense.

After the posts were shared, Lovato’s fans acted quickly by tweeting SnapChat and the gaming app Discord and asking to have the photos taken down. 

“Demi’s Snapchat got hacked. @Discordapp, please remove this server as they are from a hacker tricking people into joining their server for Demi Lovato’s nudes. #DemiLovato,” a Twitter use wrote in a post.

In response to the abuse, Discord released a statement on Friday saying: “We have a zero-tolerance approach to illegal activity on our platform and take immediate action when we become aware of it. We moved quickly yesterday to disable the link and stop access to the server as soon as we became aware of it.”

Lovato’s fans have continued to rally behind the singer and support her. 

In response to the hack, one user reminded her followers and fans that Lovato has already had a pretty tragic year. 

“Demi Lovato nearly died a year ago, lost one of her close friends only a few days ago due to addiction struggles and now someone feels the need to hack her Snapchat and leak pictures. The world makes me feel physically sick.” 

Another fan wrote, “I can’t believe there are really people who are spreading her nudes. To the people who are doing this, y’all are truly heartless. Demi has been through so much s***, and now more s*** is being piled on. She doesn’t deserve this. Let her get better.”

Lovato’s latest attack against her body comes at a time when the singer seems to be embracing it as it is.

Promoting body positivity on Instagram has proved to be a new M.O for the star. Recently she shared an image of herself in a bathing suit with the caption. “his is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!! I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited – and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me. This is what I got. I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards. So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day.”

As a celebrity, Lovato’s privacy and personal space is frequently and unfortunately invaded constantly.

It’s a sad day when a woman’s body is used against her for the amusement of others. Particularly when images of her body are distributed to the public without consent and used as a way to expose them. Lovato’s nudes were clearly taken for her own private reasons and should never have been shared or seen by others. Here’s hoping that others watching take this as a learning lesson.

‘Jane The Virgin’ Star Gets Hit With More Backlash After Using The N-Word On Instagram

Somebody get the shovel out of Gina Rodriguez’s hands because she officially went there with anti-black sentiments and said the N-word. Cue tear and the moment she dusts off her Afro-Latina card to excuse herself from backlash.

The former star of CW’s ‘Jane The Virgin’ has been ruffling feathers in the Black Twitter community for a while. Criticism of Rodriguez and her approach to speaking about and to the Black community goes all of the way back to 2017 when the actress criticized “Black Panther” for its lack of Latino inclusion. During a 2018 press junket, the Puerto Rican actress attempted to “All Lives Matter” actress Yara Shahidi when she was asked about being a role model for black girls When the actress tried once again to. Then, this year the actress was slammed not once by twice within a matter of months after she falsely stated that Latinas are paid less than any other race in Hollywood and then cried during a radio interview and essentially accused the Black community of being too hard on her while also using her father, who she claims is Afro-Latino, as an excuse for not being anti-Black.

Now the actress is facing backlash after posting a video of herself using the N-word while singing.

On Tuesday, Rodriguez posted a video of herself singing along to “Ready or Not” by the Fugees to her Instagram stories.

“Voodoo, I could do what you do, believe me,” Rodriguez sang in the video, “N***** give me heebie-jeebies.” The video stayed up on her stories for 3 hours before it was taken down. Later the actress apologized for her use of words saying in another story that she was sorry for singing along to the lyrics, which doesn’t really address the true issue.

“Hey what’s up everybody I just wanted to reach out and apologize. I am sorry. I am sorry if I offended anyone by singing along to the Fugees to a song that I love that I grew up on. I love Lauren Hill and I’m really sorry if I offended you,” she said.

Many have speculated that Rodriguez thought because she was singing a lyrics she could get away with using the derogatory term.

Others have accused the actress of being flip with her apology.

Nevertheless, Rodriguez’s reaction to backlash is pretty on-brand for her previous anti-Black sentiments.
