Last night, Don Omar performed at the Beacon Theater for an exclusive Time Warner Cable concert in front of an ecstatic crowd that spent the entire night on its feet! The Puerto Rican reggaetonero couldn't have gotten off to a better start, kicking off his explosive performance with older songs like "Pobre Diabla" and "Dale Don Dale."

Notes From Abroad: Coming Home
By Ivana Cepeda | 07/10/2009 - 14:55

I am back home, and aside from being exhausted from re-adjusting to the time difference, I’d say I had quite the experience living, working and commuting in London for a month. I can’t believe a month went by so quickly! As I re-cap my trip, let me share with you all the things I loved about London. I loved that it doesn’t get dark in the evening until almost 10pm, which made summer evenings very enjoyable. And while I heard it was very rainy here in New York City, it barely rained in London at all. I loved shopping at Topshop at Oxford Circus and Selfridges department store.

Movie Review: <i>The Other Boleyn Girl</i>
By Latina Staff | 02/29/2008 - 14:33

By Damarys Ocaña

Anne Boleyn was by far England's most important (non-ruling) queen: She was famously smart and willful and witty enough to talk circles around any man. Through her scandalous marriage to Henry VIII, she instigated England's historic break from the Catholic Church, made and broke political careers and gave birth to Elizabeth, who would be the world's most powerful ruler for 45 years. But if you want that story, you'll have to read a biography. The Other Boleyn Girl is about bodice-ripping sex, cat-fights and melodrama, baby!
