We recently had the pleasure of speaking to Walter Perez, one of the young stars of the highly anticipated adaptation of Fame, the 1980 Oscar-winning movie about artists at an NYC performing arts high school. Perez, 26, is a muscular boxer from the Los Angeles neighborhood Southgate who comes off as impossibly humble. He flashed his infectious smile and signature dimples as he talked about his first big studio movie, why he hopes to work with Jay Hernandez later this year and what he looks for in a woman.

Do I know him?" he says, confused--and she danced all around the issue. Brilliantly, we might add!

Jim Jones has come a long way. The boricua-Aruban rapper who once played sidekick to Cam'ron (remember him?) has since become one of the most popular MCs in the game, capitalizing heavily on the success of his 2006 jock jam/club banger/street anthem, "We Fly High." Now, as Jones continues to evolve into the total artist and MC package, he's doing what some would consider to be much braver than recording an album inspired by Auto-Tune (We're looking at you, Kanye!).
