During March of 2013 Catherine Ochoa competed on the fourth season of NBC’s “The Voice.” She started out in team Shakira and was then swept away by team Usher. Though she was eliminated during the Live Playoffs, that didn’t stop this young singer from continuing her career. Now a year after she left the show she has a new EP out called “Unbreakable,” which debuted at No. 16 on the Latin iTunes chart on March 1, the day of the release, and is still going strong at No. 27.

Before his upcoming ABC special, “David Blaine: Real or Magic“, I had a chance to sit down with Blaine himself, seven years after our first interview, to understand the inspiration behind his new TV show, his future touring plans, the book that blew his mind, the Spanish magicians he reveres and the card trick that left me stunned!Read More
Alfonso Cuarón has come a long way from the streets of Mexico City. He’s now a three time Oscar nominee and has never won. But what I’m betting is that Cuarón will win one this year for his masterpiece film – Gravity.
When you see the film, you can easily see the movie being nominated for 7 Oscar awards – Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actress, Best Cinematography, Best VFX and Best Sound Mixing.
Cuarón recently sat down for an interview in Los Angeles with DP/30 to talk about the conception of the film, the production, and the new technology that is so great that audiences won’t notice any seams in the magic.
America, get ready to have your Wednesday and Thursday nights rocked by one of Mexico’s hottest artists — they surely don’t call her “La Chica Dorada” (The Golden Girl) for no reason. Tonight at 8 p.m., singer Paulina Rubio makes her English-speaking-television debut as a judge on the third season of “The X Factor” where she will join Kelly Rowland, Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell.

During a recent one on one interview we had with superstar Selena Gomez, she revealed a tid bit of information that I had never heard before… Mexican pop icon Paulina Rubio is Selena Gomez’s favorite singer! Who would have thunk it!? For those who don’t know who Ms. Rubio is, she’s an original member of the super successful Mexican pop group called Timbiriche from the mid 80′s, has sold more than 20 million records around the world as a solo artist and has released 10 studio albums. Oh, she’s also the new judge on this Fall’s The X-Factor with Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and Kelly Rowland.
We also had a chance to chat with her about transforming into a part completely opposite of herself in The Getaway starring opposite Ethan Hawke, a status update on her Spanish speaking skills and singing songs from Stars Dance in Spanish, her greatest influences and role models, what’s on her bucket list and the spark that got her into designing clothes. Gomez plays a feisty, tech savvy punk in The Getaway who finds herself in the passenger seat of a car that is racing recklessly throughout Budapest to fill the demands of a “voice” that is holding the driver’s wife hostage.
I got a call at my apartment in New York City with a Los Angeles area code. I pick up and it was Diego Luna. I was slated to chat with him regarding Elysium, his new futuristic, politically charged project where he plays Julio, the best friend of Matt Damon’s character Max. He sounds like he is walking the streets of L.A., a deduction I make due to the fact he people keep saying hello to him. A little later the distractions stop and we commence our conversation which ranges from directing Matt Damon in the future, his terrible movies which he loves to the Americas uniting together to create one big ass country. Oh, and we tackle the most consequential question, to me at least… when the hell is he and Gael García Bernal shooting another movie?Read More
