For all you hardcore David Archuleta fans out there, here’s a quick scoop before Thanksgiving. I met up with David and his incredibly sweet mother, Lupe Archuleta, just yesterday–check out our matching scarf action in this photo!–and the pop star revealed that “Touch My Hand” will no longer be his next single, as many outlets have been reporting:

David Archuleta's done it again! The American Idol Season 7 runner-up sold enough copies (183,000) of his self-titled debut album to land at #2 on this week's Billboard 200 chart. The teen pop singer only trailed country starlet Taylor Swift, who sold a whopping 592,000 copies of her sophomore set, Fearless.

Jim Jones has come a long way. The boricua-Aruban rapper who once played sidekick to Cam'ron (remember him?) has since become one of the most popular MCs in the game, capitalizing heavily on the success of his 2006 jock jam/club banger/street anthem, "We Fly High." Now, as Jones continues to evolve into the total artist and MC package, he's doing what some would consider to be much braver than recording an album inspired by Auto-Tune (We're looking at you, Kanye!).

You'd never know it by the effortless and impeccable way she presents herself every time we see her in public, but Gloria Estefan would rather spend an evening wearing sweats and writing her next hit than dressing up for an awards show.
Backstage at the Latin Grammys, the singer told the press that her least favorite part about her high-profile life is "the red carpet!"

We spent the first night of the Latin Grammys running around between parties, events and red carpets, trying to shove our camera in the faces of as many celebrities as we could, and keep our balance despite a constant supply of free Heinekens. So when pop/R&B sensations Frankie J and Paula DeAnda gave us the opportunity to chill out for a minute in the back of their tour bus, we just couldn't say no.

It was an evening straight out of a fairy tale: Latin stars descended on the red carpet in their bespoke tailored suits and minimalist ball gowns (hello, Alejandra Guzman!) to hail the Queen of Latin Pop herself, Gloria Estefan. Jose Feliciano, Andy Garcia, Luis Fonsi, Patti Labelle and John Legend were just some of the celebs that came out to the George R. Brown Convention Center in H-town for the 2008 Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year tribute to Estefan.
