08.31.2017 | By |


Colombian Actor John Leguizamo has had enough with how Hollywood treats Latinos. This week he wrote an article on Billboard.com, “From Music to Movies to TV, Latinos Are Widely Underrepresented – And I’m Done With It” and he essentially calls out executives for being ignorant and blind, he calls out Latinos for being silent and not doing anything to improve the situation and he calls out mainstream media for mostly dismissing our culture altogether. Is he right? Our good friend Kellvin Chavez, founder of LatinoReview.com and EIC of SplashReport.com weighs in on what Leguizamo got right and wrong about Latinos in Hollywood.

How Selena Gomez Pushed Jay-Z Off The Billboard Top Spot

08.1.2013 | By |

So let’s get straight to the point… just how did Selena Gomez manage to beat one of the greatest acts in hip-hop and for that matter in music? If you haven’t heard, this week Selena Gomez  bumped Jay-Z’s “Magna Carta Holy Grail” off the top spot on the Billboard 200 outselling H.O.V.A  97,000 copies to 77,000 copies respectively.
