How do you know it’s time for the holidays? Is it the smell of roasted turkey? Or larger than life Christmas decorations? Or is it watching Charlie Brown cartoons? Well, for me, and a lot of Latinos, I know it’s the holidays when I see the Revista de Walter Mercado. The Puerto Rican psychic is Latino pop culture treasure—his on-point predictions are only superseded by his flamboyant style (hello, capes!).
Dear Justin Bieber,
We were so excited when we heard the news! We couldn’t wait for you to bring the Believe Tour to us!

Reggaeton meet your new prince…thy name is J Balvin. The Colombian reggaetonero has updated his genre’s sound with dance-inspired beats and seductive, Drake-esque lyrics. But don’t take our word for it, let the handsome Balvin tell you himself. We caught up with him to talk about his new album, La Familia, his favorite rapper, Drake (no surprise there), and the responsibility of pushing reggaeton into the future.

Alexia Echevarria wears many hats (all of them fashionable, we assure you). She’s a reality TV cast member (Bravo’s Real Housewives of Miami), an editor (Venue Magazine) and a socialite. Yet, her most important role is of mom to her two sons, Frankie and Peter. During this season of RHOM the public saw Echevarria the mother dealing with the ups and downs of raising two sons. Here, the Cuban Barbie dishes on the RHOM reunion, her cast mates plastic surgery habits (yikes), and more.

Over the years, Daddy Yankee fans have come to expect a number of things. First and foremost is his party-starting reggaeton. Number two would be that boyish, smiling face, hiding behind a pair of shades. And then there’s the 34-year-old Puerto Rican superstar’s familiar physique—with its smidgen of adorable pudginess.
