Tiziano Banned in Mexico

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 RodriguezĀ 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.

Tiziano Ferro Italian pop singer Tiziano Ferro made several controversial comments against Mexican women during an interview on Italian television.

Tiziano said that he is not interested in Mexican girls because they all have moustaches. Apparently, the host of the show warned him, saying that he should be careful with his words. Tiziano then said, “they know it”.

This is surprising to hear from Tiziano, since he is mostly known for his soft ballads and always crying during interviews when he speaks of his brother.

Sissy boy seems to be growing a pair.

Richard Perez-Feria People en EspaƱol Editor Richard Perez-Feria was honored with the GLAAD Media award last night in Miami Beach. Gloria Estefan introduced him and presented him with the award and Richard gave a surprisingly nice speech about tolerance versus respect that earned him a standing ovation. Others present that evening were Charityn, Eduardo Xol, and Cachita.

It can’t get any gayer than that. Wait, what am I talking about? Mario Vazquez wasn’t there.
