Jessica Simpson finally looked hot again and Christina Aguilera impressed the audience with her performance of her new single ‘Ain’t No Other Man’.

Luis Fonsi and Adamari Lopez Marry

by Latin Gossip Staff on 06.05.2006 - Adamari Lopez, Carlos Ponce, Celebrity Weddings, Charytin, Chisme, Luis Fonsi

Luis Fonsi and Adamari Lopez Wedding Singer Luis Fonsi and actress Adamari Lopez wed in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Saturday afternoon. The wedding is one of the biggest weddings in the Latin entertainment world this year. Guests were transported on shuttles from the Caribe Hilton to the church (Iglesia San Juan) and the procession lasted about an hour. When Adamari walked through the door, many of the guests started crying. As you may recall, Adamari recently made her first public appearance in over a year after going through chemotherapy and radiation to battle breast cancer.

The reception was held in the Caribe Hilton and guests partied until 3 am. Dinner was served buffet style and included an international cuisine. Millie Quezada sang for about two hours and was joined by El Gran Combo. Later Fonsi sang a song and asked Ednita Nazario to finish singing the song on stage. Other notable celebrities present included Charytin, Giselle Blondet, Carlos Ponce, Christian Acosta, and Olga Tañon.

Perhaps the most unique moment of the evening was when the wedding reception turned into a concert of sorts. Fonsi’s cousin, sister, and brother each sang a song from the 80′s. Even Fonsi’s new wife, Adamari, sang a song. Let’s just say she makes a much better actress than singer.

Rocio leaves a strong legacy of classic songs and will always be a legend in Latin music. My prayers are with her family during these times.

Tiziano Banned in Mexico

by Latin Gossip Staff on 05.31.2006 - Tiziano Ferro

Tiziano Ferro Because of the comments he made about Mexican women having moustaches, Tiziano Ferro is being banned in Mexico. Local governments have told Tiziano and his record label that he is no longer invited to perform in that country. In addition to this, stores are pulling all of Tiziano’s albums off the shelves and not supporting him at all.

This was a big mistake on Tiziano’s part. Mexico was one of his biggest markets. Good luck selling Italian/Spanish music in Kenya.

Michelle Rodriguez Serves Only a Few Hours in Jail

by Latin Gossip Staff on 05.31.2006 - Michelle Rodriguez

Michelle Rodriguez Michelle Rodriguez was supposed to serve 60 days in jail aftering violating parole when she was arrested for driving under the influence a few months ago. She only served a few hours and was released because the jail was too overcrowded.

I think they saw Michelle having way too much fun in her cell with her cell mates and decided that it would be more punishment to give her candy and then take it away.
