The Success: Fragrance Mogul

According to Forbes, Jennifer Lopez reinvigorated the celebrity fragrance industry more than a decade ago with the release of Glow by JLo. Her perfumes – more than 18 total – have made more than $2 billion in total sales. It’s no wonder so many celebs have followed suit.

If it smells, it sells, so Gomez asked her fans to choose which notes to include in her signature fragrance, Selena Gomez. The winners? Stripper-licious notes of vanilla, freesia and raspberry.

Brit Brit has 10 perfumes. Seems like a lot, but J.Lo’s got her beat with 18 fragrances and counting. Guess it’s been hard for the Louisiana bombshell to come up with other ways to incorporate “Fantasy” into her fragrance names.

Even the Biebs is in. Justin’s got four perfumes and his young fans love ’em, giving J.Lo a run. His “Someday” perfume broke sales records when it was released.

The Success: The Block

Old school hip hop doesn’t get old. Jenny from the Block’s video, inspired by her upbringing in the Bronx, quickly climbed the charts. With a debut at #67, it eventually rose to #3. If it works, why not copy it?

Becky G isn’t even trying to hide her imitation game with a straight-up remake video for her hit single Becky from the Block. J.Lo makes a cameo in the music video, so it’s clear Becky G’s got her blessing.

Bad Bunny Is His Own Competition At 2021 Billboard Music Awards + More Latin Nominees

Bad Bunny Is His Own Competition At 2021 Billboard Music Awards + More Latin Nominees

The nominees for this year’s Billboard Music Awards are out. In one of the Latin categories, all three of Bad Bunny’s quarantine albums are nominated. The Puerto Rican superstar faces off with himself, J Balvin, and Anuel AA.

The winners at the Billboard Music Awards are based on sales, streaming, and chart performance.

The Billboard Music Awards gathers its nominees and winners from data on the charts this past year. If no one was buying or streaming your music, then you won’t get nominated. If you know the sales figures of the nominees, it’s easy to tell who will end up taking the award.

Good luck to whoever is nominated against Bad Bunny.

It should be no surprise that Bad Bunny dominated the nominations in the Latin categories. YHLQMDLG peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and El Último Tour Del Mundo became the first all-Spanish album in history to hit No. 1. To whoever is nominated alongside Benito, good luck.

All three of Benito’s albums that he dropped during the COVID-19 quarantine are nominated in one category.

In the Top Latin Album category, Bad Bunny is impressively nominated three times for YHLQMDLG, Las Que No Iban a Salir, and El Último Tour Del Mundo. His competition in the category includes fellow Boricua Anuel AA’s Emmanuel and Colombiano J Balvin’s Colores albums.

Karol G, Becky G, and La Rosalía face off for Top Latin Female Artist.

The Top Latin Artist nominees are all men, including Bad Bunny, his previous competition, Maluma, and Ozuna. In the Top Latin Male Artist category, it’s Benito against Ozuna and J Balvin. In the Top Latin Female Artist category, Chicana singer Becky G faces Colombiana Karol G and Spanish pop star Rosalía.

All of last year’s big hits are nominated in Top Latin Song category.

The Top Latin Song category captures all of the bangers from the past year. Bad Bunny is nominated twice for “Yo Perreo Sola” and “Dákiti” with Jhay Cortez. Maluma and The Weeknd’s “Hawái” remix is also up for the award with the Black Eyed Peas’ “Ritmo (Bad Boys for Life)” with J Balvin and Ozuna’s “Caramelo” remix featuring Karol G and Myke Towers.

The Billboard Music Awards will air on May 23. The live show will be broadcast on NBC and hosted by the Jonas Brothers’ Nick Jonas.

Selena Gomez Launches ‘Mental Health 101’ Campaign, Wants Schools To Provide Mental Health Services To Students

Selena Gomez Launches ‘Mental Health 101’ Campaign, Wants Schools To Provide Mental Health Services To Students

On Thursday, Selena Gomez took to her Instagram page to reveal a new project she’s working on. And while Selena has been busy working on her Spanish-language album and makeup brand this year, this project is a little bit different. This project will be focused on a cause near and dear to Selena Gomez’s heart: mental health.

Along with Rare Beauty, Selena Gomez is launching a mental health initiative in Mental Health Awareness month to get more schools to provide mental health services to their students.

The initiative is called Mental Health 101. The campaign is meant to spark conversation with the question: What if mental health education was taught in school?”

Gomez posted a powerful short essay to her Instagram feed about how important mental health services have been to her. It read:

Today, I’m so grateful that we get to launch Mental Health 101. This campaign is so close to my heart because of my own struggles with mental health. I know first hand how scary and lonely it can feel to face anxiety and depression by yourself at a young age. If I had learned about my mental health earlier on – been taught about my condition in school the way I was taught about other subjects – my journey could have looked very different.

The world needs to know that mental health matters. It’s just as important as your physical health, and I wish we could acknowledged that, not just in words but through our actions.

For anyone who is hurting right now, I hope you know that you are not alone. I’m a believer in seeking help. Getting support and educating myself on mental health has changed my life, and it can change yours, too.

Gomez asked her followers to join her mental health initiative by doing three things: signing her change.org petition, donating to the Rare Impact fund, and spreading her message via social media.

Gomez’s Rare Impact fund has the goal of raising $100 million over the next 10 years to help connect people in underserved communities with mental health care. The fund will also be matching donations up to $200,000. You can donate here.

On the change.org petition, Selena Gomez wrote that it is “absolutely essential to offer mental health services in schools, and for the philanthropy community to prioritize this issue.”

The goal of Gomez’s change.org petition is to raise awareness amongst the philanthropy community about how important this issue is for you people.

She also wasn’t afraid to get candid. “Mental Health is personal for me,” she wrote. “Figuring out how to manage my own mental health hasn’t always been easy, but it’s something I am constantly working on. I hope I can help others work on it, too. I wish more people talked about mental health when I was younger, so I could have learned and understood what was going on with my own health earlier on.”
