No doubt about it: 25 is a big birthday. And when you’re Jennifer Lopez’s boyfriend, prepare for a serious celebration.
According toPeople Magazine, the superstar bought her beau, Casper Smart, a customized white Dodge Ram pick-up truck. A source told the magazine, “Jennifer had planned a fun day to celebrate Casper’s birthday, adding, she “knew that Casper really wanted a truck, and Casper was very excited about the generous gift.”
J. Lo tweeted her excitement for her BF’s big day. “Beau has a birthday we’re so glad we hope its the happiest Birthday Beau ever has!” #singingtweet. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAR!!!”
With a gift like that, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be his best birthday yet. Smart immediately made use of the practical present by driving himself and Lopez to his birthday dinner at an Italian restaurant in West Hollywood, where they were joined by friends. A photo of the two in Casper’s new ride shows the couple all smiles.
Lopez has plenty to smile about. She debuted her new, racy video “Dance Again,” which features Pitbull and some sexy dancing with Smart involving glitter and blindfolds.

The former Miss Universe was called “retarded”, among other offenses, qualifies his comments as racist.
Former Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza was indignant with the comments of the comedian Lisa Lampanelli,who called it “delayed.”
El suceso ocurrió durante el programa de radio de Sirius XM, en el que la comediante -quien compite en el programa The Apprentice (NBC) junto a Mendoza- respondió a preguntas de un fanático que se quejó de cómo trataba a la reina de belleza. The incident occurred during the radio show on Sirius XM, which the comedian, who competes on The Apprentice (NBC) with Mendoza-answered questions from a fan who complained about how she treated the queen of beauty.
“Es una pin… “It’s a pin … retrasada. delayed. Dayana no ha tenido una idea útil en The Apprentice ; cuando las tenga en el futuro estaría bien”, dijo Lampanelli, conocida por burlarse equitativamente de todas las minorías. Dayana has not had a useful idea in The Apprentice, when you have them in the future would be fine, “said Lampanelli, known for making fun of all minorities equally. “Dayana es bella pero no es inteligente. ¿Me gustaría verme como ella? Sí. ¿Me gustaría pensar como ella? Eso no es posible de responder porque ella no piensa”. “Dayana is pretty but not smart. Would I like to look like her? Yes I would think like her? That is not possible to answer because she does not think.”
Mendoza emitió el siguiente comentario en exclusiva a PeopleEnEspanol.com a través de su representante: “Entiendo que Lisa tiene que hacer su trabajo de mofarse de los demás. Mendoza issued the following statement exclusively to PeopleEnEspanol.com through its representative: “I understand that Lisa has to do its job of mocking others. Si burlarse de los demás le ayuda a vender taquillas, no hay problema; estoy feliz de ayudarla a poner comida en la mesa. If you make fun of others helps to ticket scalping, no problem, I’m happy to help put food on the table. Sin embargo, cuando usa comentarios racistas, ella no sólo esta ofendiéndome a mí sino a la cultura hispana entera”. However, when using racist comments, she is offending not only me but the whole Hispanic culture. ”
UPDATED TRANSLATION: “I understand that it’s Lisa’s job to make fun of people for a living,” Dayana tells us. “If poking fun at me can help her sell tickets to her shows, no problem, I am happy to help her put food on her table. However, when she uses racial slurs, she is not only targeting myself, but degrading an entire hispanic culture.”
We couldn’t agree more! In case you missed Lisa’s original comments, she said:
“I actually would love to see [Dayana] giving birth. She’s a s**c! she’s going to do it f***ing soon, anyway. She’ll be knocked up before the end of the week.”

By now, you have probably heard everyone buzzing about Sofia Vergara on the April cover for Esquire’s sex issue. We opened up the glossy magazine, featuring the Colombian actress in a black lace corset with the words SEX sprawled across her hips, and discovered that the cover story has an interesting angle to it: a white man defining what it means to be Latina.
The venomous backwards narrative weaves in so many stereotypes about Latinas that we are instantly propelled to the Carmen Miranda ‘cha cha’ days. Writer Cal Fussman offers a mainstream guide of the “incomprehensible ways of the Latin woman.” What makes him a bona fide expert? He’s married to a Brazilian. Somehow we don’t think that’s an excuse to be machista.
Latinas are domestic. Fussman seems obsessed with Latinas’ domestic habits, especially cooking. Sofia Vergara calls him out on it at one point, wondering if he thought he was getting a maid when he married his wife. He says he wasn’t, but when his idea of a Latina is “great food and amazing sex,” we wonder.
Latinas are superstitious. This one comes out of nowhere, sandwiched between beauty standards and Latinas’ inability to make concrete plans. We didn’t realize Latinos were the only culture that had superstitions and old wives’ tales, but apparently so!
Latin men are cheaters. If Fussman’s wife thinks Latin men are cheaters, then they must be, right? We’re not sure if the implication is that American men are pushovers or if Vergara really believes Latinos have a “genetic disposition,” but it’s bad either way.
Latinas are controlling. Apparently, when a Latina mother fusses over her son, she just wants to control his life. Nevermind that it’s just advice and he knows (as much as she does) that he can make his own decisions.
Latinas love to dress sexy. The mainstream portrayal of the sexed-up Latina has been around since even before Charo’s “cuchi-cuchi” image back in the 70s. Sadly, it is still a prominent depiction of Latinas in primetime and Hollywood, but we know that not ALL Latinas love to dress sexy. Contrary to popular belief, we aren’t born with a tight mini-dress and heels.
Latinas are loud. Okay, just like any other human being, doesn’t this depend on the setting? Nope, apparently we have a loud switch that’s just always on. What’s loud and clear is that this stereotype is already played out.
Latinas are jealous. Well in his exact words, “fiercely territorial.” Remind us when we became possessive telenovela caricatures? Sure, it makes for good entertainment, but we don’t all have our jealousy meters set on high. Vergara even challenges him by saying, “Things have changed. Women now work. Women feel like they don’t have to take that s*&t anymore.” Our point exactly!
Latinas love to dance. The transition literally goes from talking about jealousy to hitting the dance floor! Sigh. Vergara says, “You go to a Latin party or birthday and there’s always dancing.” That may be true, but that doesn’t mean we only date partners who know how to salsa.
It’s not that there’s no truth in some of the things Vergara says in the interview – certainly, they at least seem to be true for her. The problem is that pretending this is some sort of blueprint for how all Latinas are, and how American men can exploit that knowledge to get the Sofia Vergara of their dreams, is both ridiculous and offensive.
Latinas have worked hard over the years to be more than the sexpot and the maid. It’s sad, then, that Cal Fussman seems insistent on perpetuating those stereotypes.
