This week the National Latino Media Coalition (NLMC) scolded the nation’s top broadcast networks for not embracing diversity (i.e. mostly for failing to employ more Latinos in front of and behind the camera.) In a press conference on Tuesday in Los Angeles, Alex Nogales, president & CEO of the NLMC said that:
Well said, Mr. Nogales! But I wouldn’t hold my breath too long if I were you… Last time I checked, even the main Hispanic networks insisted on drawing their top talent from some sort of Swedish incubator.
L’Oréal Paris on Dec. 3 announced it has tapped JLo as global ambassador for the brand, mostly because she is, like, super popular and all, but also because the Bronx diva is a confessed fan of the beauty brand. According to an “inspiring” press release sent out this week to the media, JLo loves the new gig because:
“Having used L’Oréal Paris products most of my life, I’m excited to work with a brand that consistently offers a wide range of superior products that are attainable for women everywhere.”
One of the many perks of living in New York City is that, no matter where you go -or what mood you’re in- you will always bump into a band of authentic mariachis wearing Santa hats.
