Huffington Post - 5 months
An estimated 27 million Latinos are eligible to vote this year, and Wilmer Valderrama is calling on every single one of them to make their voice heard at the polls on or before Election Day. The 36-year-old actor-activist, who works closely with the non-partisan organization Voto Latino, recently spoke with The Huffington Post about patriotism, Latinos’ civic responsibility and why he feels sitting out the upcoming election is absolutely not an option. “[Voting] really is a responsibility, it really is a duty as a people who enjoy this country that I think that it doesn’t get more patriotic than casting a vote on behalf of the well-being and progress and evolution of your own country,” he explained to HuffPost. “To me, that’s the most patriotic thing you can do, is to vote so you can continue to shape the country to what you want it to be.” And if that’s not a compelling enough reason to head to the polls, Valderrama, who was born in Miami and is of Colombian and Venezuelan ...

When he resurfaces, he'll be as dedicated to his job and country as ever, but after his years-long assignment he'll become an unpredictable, charismatic loose cannon. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Christina Milian Has Us 'Waiting For Tonight' In New 'Lip Sync Battle' Clip
Huffington Post - 10 months
Christina Milian went full '90s J.Lo with a seductive performance of the singer's hit song "Waiting For Tonight" for this week's episode of "Lip Sync Battle." The 34-year-old star channeled Lopez while going head-to-head with her "Grandfathered" co-star Josh Peck, who may be at a slight disadvantage considering Milian has plenty of singing and dancing experience.   But both Milian and Peck have a hard act to follow, Gina Rodriguez and Wilmer Valderrama brought their A-game Thursday to the "Lip Sync Battle" stage with Backstreet Boys and Lil' Wayne-inspired performances.  Watch a preview of Milian's performance above and check out the full battle Thursday at 10 p.m. on Spike.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Gwen Stefani And Blake Shelton Look So In Love At Vanity Fair Oscars Party
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Despite some questionable breakup rumors, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are still going strong.  And what better way to show the world than by making their official red carpet debut? The couple, who began dating last year, attended the Vanity Fair Oscars party on Sunday night, quashing rumors and looking oh-so-happily in love. The No Doubt frontwoman arrived wearing a show-stopping sheer red Yanina Couture gown with strategically placed layered appliqués. It was definitely giving off some Katniss Everdeen, girl-on-fire vibes. She kept her blond locks down with a few loose glamour waves framing her face, and wore her signature red lip. Shelton kept things simple in jeans, a black suit jacket and a black shirt, letting his partner's outfit truly shine. (Although seeing Shelton in a tuxedo would've been a treat, right?) Throughout the night, Stefani and Shelton hung out with fellow celebrity couples Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, as well as Demi Lovato and ...

Demi Lovato Is All Of Us On New Year's Day
Huffington Post - about 1 year
If you were slow to get out of bed this morning, Demi Lovato can totally relate -- even though it's likely your night was a little bit different from hers.  The "Confident" singer didn't even touch alcohol when she rang in 2016 while performing her hits for "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest." Still, she woke up with the "worst headache this morning" and expressed her sympathy for those waking up with Champagne-induced afflictions.  I have the worst headache this morning and I didn't even drink last night. God bless those hungover today.. May the hydration be with you — Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) January 1, 2016 When Lovato was still feeling the good vibes of the new year, she shared a video on Instagram showing the colorful chaos of Times Square at midnight, complete with a little dance from fellow musician Wiz Khalifa.  A video posted by Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) on Jan 1, 2016 at 7:51am PST Lovato's longtime ...
