What's the teen equivalent to an Oscar statue? A surfboard of course!
Universal Studio’s Gibson Amphitheater held one of this year’s biggest nights for young Hollywood, as it hosted the 2013 Teen Choice Awards.
Mexican actor Diego Luna stars in the futuristic Sci-Fi flick, Elysium.
Luna plays Julio -- the friend and advisor to Matt Damon’s character, Max. Together, the two attempt to bring the poor from planet earth, to join the rich in the land above called Elysium.
Elysium sheds light on the idea of rich vs. poor, and with anti-immigration issues at the forefront of debate, one doesn’t have to look decades into the future to see what Luna believes exists today.
It's not surprising that teens and 20-somethings obsess over the latest reality show craze or biggest network drama.
But what’s amazing is when these same pop culture fans join forces with stars of their favorite TV shows to celebrate social change.
The VH1 “Do Something” awards shines light on Hollywood stars by honoring their philanthropy, and awards one lucky non-celeb a cash prize of $100,000 to help fund the cause they created.
While The Voice is a competition all about winning a record deal, the accidental scene stealer lies in the four artists occupying the judges’ seat, and for season 5, we’d like to welcome back Christina Aguilera.
With auditions already underway, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and returning judges Cee Lo Green and Aguilera began to make the media rounds.
All good things must come to an end; well, at least for now. Tuesday night’s The Voice finale was a bittersweet evening, with team Blake’s Danielle Bradbery crowned winner, while at the same time, saying goodbye to judges Shakira and Usher.
Last night’s The Voice eliminations may have put an end to team Shakira, as her remaining contestant Sasha Allen was eliminated. This leaves two of Team Blake and one of Team Usher to battle it out in next week’s season finale.
But of course, Shakira herself remained strong. With an already proven successful career, she’ll continue to spend the next few years dedicated to her family, and the millions of fans who support her everyday.
Nothing radiated The Voice’s red carpet more than a stunning Shakira dressed in a golden-green metallic dress, her hair straightened to accentuate her beautiful, contagious smile.
The past year has been nothing but a full season of firsts for our favorite superstar Shakira. From the birth of her first child, a son with boyfriend Gerard Pique, to her first time as a coach on NBC’s The Voice, Shakira’s a woman who does it all, with little Milan along for the ride.
It was more than just golden popcorn and Kim K’s baby bump at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards; the night was filled with Latino celebrities who helped brighten up the star-studded show! Latina celebs who packed the red carpet included Bella Thorne, Jordana Brewster, Alexa Vega and none other than our May 2013 cover girl Zoë Saldaña.
For any Hollywood celebrity, the only time ruining an outfit is a good thing is when lime green slime is thrust upon you. There’s only one place where that can happen, and that’s the 2013 Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards. Selena Gomez, Rico Rodriguez, Fergie, Jessica Alba and more dazzled the orange carpet, while screaming fans and onlookers hoped to snap a pic or land an autograph from their favorite celebs.
