You’ll see him at all the KIIS events! Born and raised in the friendly city of Long Beach, but also a true Jalisco gentleman at heart. (I hope that doesn't sound too "e-harmony-ish" LOL.)
Hola Familia! My name is Mayra Chavez and I am a proud product of Mexico. If I'm not in front of a camera or recording in a studio, you can find me spending time with my amazing family and my adorable dog, Max!! I love to be optimistic!! If I can dream it I can attain it! Live, love and enjoy!
Bianca is a Southern California sista living her dream in Los Angeles. My family is from Jalisco, Mexico and I'm a sucker for food. Keeping up with trends is what she lives for and she chases everything fun, fab and happening! You’ll probably spot her checking out a new restaurant, at a concert, or chatting with an upcoming designer. She loves Coca-Cola in a can...not in a bottle and NOT Pepsi.
Actress and singer Victoria Justice talks about her transition from teen queen to rising starlet and her busy post-Victorious schedule as she appears on the October 2012 cover of Latina, which hits newsstands, Nook Newsstand & Kindle Fire on September 11.
Looking beyond her first feature film, Fun Size, with costars Chelsea Handler and Johnny Knoxville, Justice sits down with Latina to share her career direction and how family and friends keep her grounded.
Also inside our Young Hollywood issue, find out which nine other Latino entertainers are making waves in Hollywood - from Naya Rivera and Michael Trevino to Demi Lovato.
On her drive to perform as an 8-year old: “I was the one who kept bugging my mom about it; I was like, ‘Take me to an agency! I want to try this out!”
On the unexpected cancelation of her Emmy-nominated hit show, Victorious: “The end of Victorious marked the end of my teenage years. I was 12 years old when I started on Nickelodeon, and I literally have spent all my teen years on the network. I will always be grateful to them, but I’m ready to move on.”
On taking on the lead in Fun Size and where she sees herself next: “A lot of the stuff that was presented to me was fluff,” Justice says. “I was definitely ready [to be the lead of a film]. I’m an actress and I want to be an artist and I’m a songwriter. I want to take on projects that allow me to take my audience with me, but start [transitioning] into slightly more mature material.”
On Friday night dinners with her mother, Serene, and what keeps her grounded: “We eat together and we laugh together, and it’s honestly my favorite day of the week,” Justice says. “My parents got divorced when I was young, but I grew up around the Puerto Rican side of the family, so I’m definitely immersed in that culture.”
The 19-year-old doesn’t kiss and tell when it comes to questions about her love life: “[Having a boyfriend is] something every girl thinks about. It’s hard because I work all the time, but at the end of the day, it’s a nice thing to be able to have someone that you love and trust.”

On the week of New Years Eve '08 I decided to go to YouTube in search for a classic, retro hairstyle tutorial. To my amazement I came across one young woman who made an amazing Rockabilly Pin Up hairstyle. Her username is 'ILoveGerardo'. She is one talented, classy, sweet chica and she offers a lot more than just hairstyles. Check out the interview (see below) I had a chance to do on her and what she's
SMC: What made you want to start Vlogging?
Iris: I have a lot to talk about and when I do, I notice people surrounding my friends and I, are usually eavesdropping on our conversation. It doesn't bother me; it just shows that perhaps what I have to contribute is interesting enough to share with other people who seem to have similar interests. You have to wonder, there must be at least 1 other person in this world, that you probably will never meet, but may be 100% interested in listening and watching the things you want to show and tell. You Tube is a perfect tool for ensuring you get connected.
SMC: Why do you take the time to create these awesome videos that take a lot of work?
Iris: Vlogging is a fun little ingredient to add to the day. If it weren't for things like random vlogs, social networking and chats with friends, the days would all be "work"
SMC: I will admit, I fell in love with your channel when you started posting pin up hair do's. Every so often I see them again. Any chance you might stick to posting pin up YouTube videos?
Iris: Thank you so much. I can't stick to just that. I have more to contribute than just hair styles. I love my vlogging channel for accepting various and random topics. Things like "what I wish I knew before I had my baby", "how I stay fit as a mom", my "outfit of the day"-Even though I am NOT a fashionista, I don't keep up with the latest fashions and am NOT an awesome, aspiring fashion designer. I am just your every day gal :) People can appreciate that too.
SMC: The videos are very inspirational. If and when people message you, you are very hands on with the replies. Are there any messages that try to discourage you from posting?
Iris: My vlogging channel is not very popular, so I am not as exposed to many. It seems that the only people watching my vlogs are my subscribers. So far, they are all very kind and have nothing but encouraging things to say to me. Go read some of my comments now, you will see I am serious.
SMC: Do you have any encouraging words for your audience?
Iris: Though I don’t see or know many of you personally, I am glad to have lived and known of you. If it weren’t for the internet, many of us would have never known of each other. I am glad you stop by to say hello to me and hope you feel the same way about me, when I make a vlog for you.
SMC: and last but not least; the links to where people can follow you for more great tips...

Two of our leading ladies released music videos this week! Yes! I’m talking about las hermosas Belinda and Shakira! You can watch Pitbull and Shakira ‘Get It Started Below!’ I’m lovin’ the energy of this song!
Belinda’s music video is also a must watch! Aesthetically, the video is probably one of the most beautiful videos I’ve ever seen. We definitely see a more fearless side to Belinda. She was literally walking around and getting all cuddly with a jaguar! (Or wait...was that a panther!? Ugh sorry...I don’t know my cats!) lol!!
Just watch the vids and YOU tell me! lol!
