New Yorkers: Kat DeLuna

Kat DeLuna, Born in The Bronx

The Bronx-born Kat DeLuna may have moved to the Dominican Republic at a young age, but the Dominican American pop singer never forgot her New York City roots. DeLuna – whose family moved back to the United States when she was 14, to Newark – even shares her Big Apple mindset with the world on the single “New York City Gurls,” singing, “Nowhere in the world can you experience, all of this is sexiness attitude apocalypse; if you’ve been around the world, there’s no place you’d rather be.”

She's a pop culture junkie who watches way too much television, and she still hoards magazines.
