Jesus Trivino

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Jesus Trivino Alarcon began his professional journalism career at Vibe. At 25, he became editor-in-chief of Fuego, the first national English language Latino men’s magazine, and served as senior editor for Scratch, a magazine dedicated to hip-hop producers and DJs. Since then he has guided the editorial direction for MyNuvoTV.com, the online component of the Latino lifestyle cable network, and BET.com's music shows and specials including 106 & Park. Additionally, he has written and reported for the NY Daily News, SLAM, The Source, XXL, Inked, SOHH.com, People.com, Essence.com, and many more. In his 13-year career he’s interviewed countless celebrities including Carmelo Anthony, Demi Lovato, Marc Anthony, Rosario Dawson, Willie Colón, Jay-Z, Nas, Jessica Alba, John Leguizamo, 50 Cent, Kanye West, among others. Today, as Latina’s Entertainment Editor he’s constantly thinking WWJD—What Would Juanes Do? Follow me on Instagram @JesusTalks and Twitter @JTrivinoAlarcon.
 
Favorite Latino fashionista: Carmelo Anthony
 
My first celebrity crush: Iris Chacon, Yuri
 
Something people don't know about me: At 11, I was working with my dad at a kosher butcher shop on Sundays. Child labor be damned! It instilled a work ethic in me that I still have to this day. Thanks, Pops. 
 
Guilty pop culture addiction: Real Housewives of New Jersey, Bad Girls Club, Real World
 
Two words that describe Elvis Crespo: Jerk Chicken
 
If I met Jennifer Lopez, I would: take the 6 train to the Bronx. We’d find the nearest bodega and get quarter drinks and share a bag of salt & vinegar chips. Then I’d realize it was Jennifer Lopez who works at my doctor’s office.
 
Movie that makes me cry: A Better Life, Up
 
Celebrity I'd switch teams for: Juanes
 
Latino artist on my iPod right now: 3BallMTY
 
Favorite Interview with a Latino Celeb: Willie Colon
 
Favorite Latin dish: Sopa de Bola
 
Favorite Spanish-Language Song: “Nada Valgo Sin Tu Amor”—Juanes
 
Proudest Moment as a Latino: When I got the call to work at Latina. To be able to promote our culture and gente to the masses is incredible. Dale!
