Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber hit the beach in Cabo San Lucas for New Year’s Eve

Jan 14, 2018

Two weeks ago, Selena Gomez ended 2017 on a sunny note. The 25-year-old “Bad Liar” singer escaped to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for New Year’s  Eve weekend, where she was seen splashing in the waves  alongside pals Raquelle Stevens, Courtney Barry, and Ashley Cook in an Instagram photo shared to Stevens’ page. “Our 6th New Years together!” Stevens captioned the group shot. “Grateful for so many amazing memories.” It wasn’t just the four friends. Other photos on Instagram show that BFFs Caroline Franklin, Theresa Marie Mingus, Rebeka Walters, and Tanya Rad are also along for the trip. Many of the friend’s boyfriends appear to be joining them, though it’s unclear whether Gomez’s on-again, off-again beau Justin Bieber… because he was there too! On Friday December 29 2017, Bieber posted a video to Instagram Stories showing a colorful hand-drawn picture that read “His Perfect Love” from a sprawling sunny tropical estate. The clip was set to worship band Hillsong UNITED’s 2007 track, “Hosanna.” Justin Bieber can’t seem to stay away from his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, not even for the holidays … no wonder they’re in the same town south of the border for New Year’s Eve.  Bieber was spotted shirtless and soaking up some sun Sunday in Cabo San Lucas. Seems like he’s excited, and why shouldn’t he be? Selena’s in the same hood! Gomez and Bieber — who dated on-and-off from 2011 to 2015 — have been spending a lot of time together in the wake of Gomez’s split from ex-boyfriend The Weeknd in October. “They don’t want to repeat the same patterns as before. They’ve clearly had issues in the past, so they’re receiving some guidance from Carl,” a Gomez insider said. “[They] love each other [and] truly do want the best for each other.” TBP Newsroom with information from People and...

Once again, “Avocados From Mexico” return to the Super Bowl

Once again, “Avocados From Mexico” return to the Super Bowl

Jan 13, 2018

Avocados From Mexico is returning to the Super Bowl for the fourth consecutive year, continuing its effort to stick out in people’s minds as they’re busy sticking chips into bowls of guacamole. The Mexican Hass avocado industry’s marketing arm plans to run a 30-second spot during the Feb. 4 game, the company says. Even as some marketers used the 2017 Super Bowl to promote inclusion and otherwise respond to the election of President Trump, Avocados From Mexico continued with its humorous approach to its creative. Its next Super Bowl ad appears set to again focus on the product, emphasizing the food’s versatility, including a plan to “cast guacamole from a whole new point of view,” the brand said. “We were brainstorming here at the office and we kept saying avocados are so good it’s a shame to confine it to a bowl,” says Kevin Hamilton, senior director of marketing at Avocados From Mexico. Despite avocado prices hitting record highs in the fall, Hamilton says consumers can’t get enough of the product and that it still has a long runway in its pop culture prominence....

Mexican Guillermo del Toro wins the 2018 Golden Globe for Best Director

Mexican Guillermo del Toro wins the 2018 Golden Globe for Best Director

Jan 9, 2018

Guillermo del Toro has won the 2018 Golden Globe for Best Director for his dark fantasy film The Shape of Water, a Cold War-era monster movie and remixed fairy tale musical, starring Sally Hawkins and Michael Shannon. Following Oprah Winfrey’s speech about the plight of women in Hollywood, Natalie Portman announced the category, pointedly saying “Here are the all-male nominees.” Only three women have been nominated for the award in the last 20 years, and this year, there were several especially notable absences: Greta Gerwig, whose debut feature Lady Bird was nominated for Best Musical or Comedy; Sofia Coppola, who recently became the second woman to ever win Best Director at the Cannes Film Festival; and Patty Jenkins, who made one of the most critically acclaimed superhero movies of all time this year. Del Toro accepted the award with a speech about the value of monster movies, saying “I have been saved and absolved by them. Monsters are our way of making sense of imperfection.” When the orchestra tried to play him offstage, he hushed the conductor and continued, saying, “For 25 years, I have handcrafted very strange little tales made of motion, color, light, and shadow. And in many of these instances — three precise instances — these little stories have saved my life.” Shape of Water was nominated for seven Golden Globes, including one for the screenplay co-written by del Toro and Vanessa Taylor....

Mexican actress Salma Hayek alleges sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein

Mexican actress Salma Hayek alleges sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein

Dec 14, 2017

Salma Hayek is breaking her silence about Harvey Weinstein in a New York Times op-ed in which the star details sexual harassment and abusive behavior on the set of “Frida.” Hayek’s story comes two months after a group of women, including actress Ashley Judd, first came forward with allegations against the disgraced movie mogul. His accusers now include nearly 70 women. Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment, misconduct and sexual assault. Through a spokeswoman, Weinstein has previously denied any instances of “non-consensual” sex or “acts of retaliation.” When contacted by CNN, Weinstein’s representatives did not immediately have a response to Hayek’s story. A spokesperson for Hayek told CNN she had no further comment. In her piece, Hayek admits she initially “didn’t consider my voice important, nor did I think it would make a difference.” But she now confesses, “For years, he was my monster.” The two entered into a business relationship when Hayek sought a company with which to produce the script for “Frida,” about the famed artist and icon Frida Kahlo. Hayek said after starting the development process, she found herself dealing with repeated instances of sexual harassment by Weinstein, including requests that she take a shower with him and offers of massages and oral sex. “I don’t think he hated anything more than the word ‘no,” wrote Hayek, who said her constant rebuffing would always result in Weinstein exhibiting “Machiavellian rage.” “The range of his persuasion tactics went from sweet-talking me to that one time when, in an attack of fury, he said the terrifying words, ‘I will kill you, don’t think I can’t,'” she said. Weinstein eventually held the future of the film over her, according to Hayek. She fought legally to get the production back on track but doing so came with numerous, nearly impossible conditions, including a rewrite of the script, raising $10 million for financing, and casting four prominent actors in smaller roles. Hayek credits “a phalanx of angels who came to my rescue,” including Edward Norton, who rewrote the script for no credit, producer Margaret Perenchio and director Julie Taymor. Once filming started, Hayek said “the sexual harassment stopped but the rage escalated.” “We paid the price for...

Dec 5, 2017

American actress Katharine McPhee looked stunning in a purple string bikini as she vacationed in Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico over the weekend. The 33-year-old singer and actress was on holiday with her pal Hilary Shor, who is the producer on The Help and Children Of Men. But the trip was not without some strife, however, as on Tuesday Page Six reported McPhee and Shor got mad at a bride for kicking them out of her wedding after they ‘crashed’ it. McPhee is best known for her stint on American Idol as well as her TV show Scorpion. She has also been in the news lately for her romantic relationship with music producer David Foster. They confirmed their dating status last week when she was seen kissing the mogul on the lips outside Italian restaurant E Baldi in Beverly Hills. Katharine looked flawless in her little string bikini as she played around in a hotel pool in Cabo San Lucas. She appeared to be in great spirits, often smiling to onlookers. The 5ft 8in Smash actress went in and out of the water and then laid on her lounge chair next to a female pal. Unfortunately for Katharine, during the dreamy getaway someone was checking Shor’s Instagram account. The looker and her friend reportedly called the bride a ‘loser’ and a ‘bitch‘ for kicking them out of her beach-side nuptials. Source:...
