Nelly Furtado Is Promiscuous With Women

by Latin Gossip Staff on 07.17.2006 - Chisme

Nelly FurtadoMaybe there is a reason why Nelly Furtado’s latest album is titled Loose. She is not only interested in 50% of the world’s population. In fact, she is interested in 100% of it. Nelly admitted that she finds women attractive and thinks that everyone is bisexual.

鈥淎s humans we have both male and female energies. I believe in Kurt Cobain鈥檚 statement that, in the end, everyone is gay. Everybody should have the freedom to experiment. I believe sexual experimentation is part of human history,鈥? shared Furtado in a recent interview.

Nelly also said that she has always dreamt of having her own float in a gay parade.

鈥淚鈥檇 have remixes of my songs. We鈥檇 all be drinking and dancing, just having a good time. We鈥檇 have lounge chairs and a little kiddy pool and we could all dance around and throw champagne on each other.”

I swear, those Canadian-Brazilians are crazy! Canadians alone are great. Brazilians alone are great as well. Combine the two and you get a powerful mixture of two conflicting cultures that leads to lesbianism in kiddy pools filled with champagne.

Hector el Father Cuts Back His Donations

Hector el FatherPeople pack the venues where Hector el Father perform in for the music, the energy, and the money. Yes, the money. At every scheduled concert appearance, Hector el Father would throw $10,000 into the audience. Unfortunately for you and me, Hector is no longer doing this because his pastor told him not to.

“My pastor pulled me over and said that I wasn’t doing right by throwing the money and that I should focus on better ways of using it,” shared Hector el Father.

I have tickets to four of his concerts in hopes of striking it rich. This was my retirement plan. Now how am I going to save for my golden years? I thought I had come up with an error-proof plan.

Extreme Mess: Latin Edition

by Latin Gossip Staff on 07.14.2006 - Amor, Chisme

Richard Perez-Feria and Eduardo XolI have come across more information about Richard Perez-Feria getting fired from Time Inc. as People en Espa帽ol’s Editor. Apparently, there were more reasons as to why Richard was let go. Richard was using the magazine to improve his own celebrity status, accepting a book deal and planning to produce East Side Story, a gay take on West Side Story.

Richard was also flying Eduardo Xol, from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, all over the country as his new boy toy, named him one of the “50 most beautiful”, got him a deal to design dish ware, gave him a column in the magazine naming him contributing editor, and also supposedly bought him a Tiffany’s watch and other gifts for his “contribution”, all while expensing this to the magazine.

Eduardo, of course, accepted all of this but is now getting the surprise of his life, as Richard is moving to LA in hopes of living together happily ever after. Now that Richard is gone from the magazine, it’ll be interesting to see if Eduardo’s gig at the magazine continues and even more interesting to see if Eduardo sticks around him now that Richard’s power has been diminished. Eduardo was starting to get an attitude close to that of Richard’s so perhaps it is better for him and his career that this is going down before it is too late.

So now Eduardo can selfishly move on to the next man who he will strategically bed to gain more fame and perks. Any takers? Apparently all it takes is a few public gigs and a watch.

I have included the official internal email from Martha Nelson of Time Inc. that announces that Richard is “leaving” his post after the jump. Continue reading »

Thalia the Mediator

by Latin Gossip Staff on 07.14.2006 - Televisi贸n, Thalia

Raul De MolinaThalia is more than a singer, actress, and business woman. Thalia is also an umpire of sorts. At her recent recognition event in Miami, Thalia looked out into the audience of reporters and photographers and noticed Raul De Molina and Mauricio Zelic. These two basicaly have the same job in competing networks and, naturally, that makes them enemies. De Molina works on Univision’s El Gordo y La Flaca while Zelic is on Telemundo’s Cotorreando.

Thalia asked these two to join her onstage and to shake hands. They obliged and pretended like they were comfortable with the whole thing.

The next day, Zelic shared this story on live television. Except it wasn’t as thoughtful as one may think. Zelic said “Thalia made me shake hands with..what’s his name?” As if he didn’t know. Real unprofessional Mauricio. Nice effort Thalia.

Backstage Pass : Premios Juventud 2006

by Latin Gossip Staff on 07.13.2006 - Award Shows, Chisme, Televisi贸n, Thalia

Thalia Premios JuventudThis year’s Premios Juventud (Youth Awards) was not nearly as electric as the previous years, but either way provided material for us to rant, rave, and relish on. My seat wasn’t that great, but I did have access to many celebrities.

  • Kumbia Kings opened with a hot performance and they really pumped up the crowd. I looked around and everybody was dancing.
  • Univision, hoping to bank on their recent flux of English-speaking audience, had host Cristian De La Fuente announce that the show was available in CC3, making english subtitles available.
  • La India fell off the stage during her performance straight into the audience not once, not twice, but three times.
  • Calle 13 performed and the entrance consisted of the rapper flying in on a bicycle E.T. style.
  • Thalia looked stunning and pulled off Mariah Carey hair better than Mariah Carey, but lip synced the entire song and then proceeded to pretend even more by faking a guitar performance.
  • Wisin and Yandel walking up to RBD in the seating area and congratulating them on their wins. The RBD kids looked frightened for their lives when the reggaetoneros approached them.
  • Rapper Ivy Queen was recognized for her long-running and successful career.
  • Daddy Yankee wasn’t there to receive his award for Best Urban Artist and the crowd booed when it was announced that he wasn’t present.
  • Bobby Larios asked to be seated next to India or Ivy Queen only.
  • Aventura won the award for Favorite Tropical Artist and then one of their members accepted the award with a rap dedicated to the immigrants in the United States. Very Anti-Bush.
  • Ninel Conde, the star of the night, was sexy as hell during her musical performance.
  • Bacilos had what they called their “farewell performance”. They have split up and I’m sure we won’t hear of them again.
  • There were winners and there were losers. Check out the winners.

All in all, it was an entertaining night and I am sure more will happen at the after-parties. That is all for now, I am off to get more scoop. I will report tomorrow after my hangover wears off.
