#SuperBowl2020 …. “🎊 Halftime Show …. Latinas J-Lo and Shakira 🎊 …. “!!

~~February 3, 2020~~


I have to confess … I’m not a football fan.

Yet, today I was watching and waiting.

I was waiting for the halftime show.



What a thrill!!


Shakira kicked things off, dressed in glittering red with a veritable army of female dancers at her command. She ran through her biggest songs, including “She Wolf,” “Whenever, Wherever” and “Hips Don’t Lie.”

She whipped out her notorious belly-dancing skills, played a searing guitar (Shakira was a rock star before she went pop) and crowd-surfed her way through a mosh pit.

In a surprise appearance, Shakira brought out Puerto Rican rapper and singer Bad Bunny for an energetic cover of Cardi B’s 2018 hit “I Like It” halfway through her set.

(Bad Bunny is one of the original featured artists on that song, delivering a verse in Spanish.)

The Halftime Show transitioned directly over to Lopez for a rousing set that she kicked off with her classic song “Jenny from the Block,” surrounded by a cadre of dancers, decked out in black leather and dancing exuberantly. But the highlight came after Lopez made a costume change to a sparkling body suit and sang “Waiting for Tonight” while pole dancing, putting to excellent use the skills she honed while filming for Hustlers. 

Lopez cycled through songs including “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” and “On the Floor” before ceding the stage to her daughter and a chorus of girls to start off “Let’s Get Loud.”

Colombian reggaeton star J Balvin showed up for a cameo in Lopez’s set with his hit song “Mi Gente.” Mi Gente had featured Beyoncé in a 2017 remix; this time, Lopez accompanied the Latin music superstar. T

he message of “Mi Gente” is one of Latin unity, making it an especially apt choice for the Super Bowl set.


Lopez’s 11-year-old daughter Emme got her time to shine as well – and to prove she follows in her mom’s footsteps – coming out to sing with a chorus of girls for a sweet rendition of the Lopez classic “Let’s Get Loud;” the camera also panned over to Shakira during the song, who was playing the drums.

For “Let’s Get Loud,” Lopez appeared draped in a giant flag coat – one side featuring the red, white and blue of Puerto Rico, and the other the red, white and blue of the U.S. It was a poignant – and pointed – show of support to the territory, which was recently hit by a damaging earthquake.



My Momoa Monday Moment …. “🌺 Whips, Arrows and Motorcycles 🌺 …. “!!

~~February 2, 2020~~



Mondays continue to be a hunt for Momoa info and pics. This time I found something where two of my fave people are together having the time of their life!

Humor always helps me make it through the day!



How could I have missed so much?

With a rare 2 free hours on his hands, James Corden calls “See” star Jason Momoa to see if he’s free for a hang.

But when Jason shows up with a pair of vintage motorcycles and plans to do archery and whip training, James has to dig deep to prove he can hang as Jason Momoa’s side piece.

As Puerto Rico Struggles With Rising Femicides, an Art Series Remembers Those Killed in 2019

My nation, my country, my home!! … ‘Puerto Rico has one of the highest rates of violence against women in the world, and with the small Caribbean archipelago repeatedly hit with back-to-back natural disasters, experts believe the violence will continue to increase.’

Repeating Islands


A report by Rachel Reichard for Remezcla.

Puerto Rico has one of the highest rates of violence against women in the world, and with the small Caribbean archipelago repeatedly hit with back-to-back natural diasters, experts believe the violence will continue to increase. At the Museo de las Américas in San Juan, the island’s capital, a portrait series is honoring some of the women who died in 2019 as a result of gender-based violence.

Incorporating florals, the series, created by Puerto Rican artist Elizabeth Barreto, remembers 12 women victims of femicide, the killing of women based on their gender.

The women included in the program are Luz Iraida Nieves Olivo, Marta Rosa Alvarado, Ana Roque Mulero, Arlene García Rosario, Laneyshka Giselle Tirado Rivera and Rosaura Rivera Vázquez, Lourdes del Carmen Cuevas Natal, Mercedes Duarte Rosario, Yomaira Hernández Martínez, Thyndia Cruz, Yashira Serra Santiago, and Rosselly Cintrón Torres.

Paying Tribute to Beloved TV Icon Walter Mercado (Film Review)

WALTER MERCADO … Puerto Rican Icon!! … ‘Focusing on iconic Puerto Rican astrologer and TV celebrity Walter Mercado, Mucho Mucho Amor has been acquired by Netflix and will receive a wide release this summer.’

Repeating Islands

mucho-mucho-amor-2-1080x608Monica Castillo (Hyperallergic) reviews the documentary Mucho Mucho Amor, which just premiered at Sundance, saying that “it feels like a celebration in a way few biographies do.” Focusing on iconic Puerto Rican astrologer and TV celebrity Walter Mercado, Mucho Mucho Amor has been acquired by Netflix and will receive a wide release this summer. I can’t wait to see it, as I can readily identify with a comment from Castillo’s closing paragraph: “When I recommend this movie to friends, colleagues, or strangers, it feels like I’m sharing a piece of my childhood, a slice of my culture.”

It is perhaps impossible to capture what an enigmatic figure like Walter Mercado has meant to the millions around the world who watched him on TV. But Cristina Costantini and Kareem Tabsch’s heartfelt tribute that just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, Mucho Mucho Amor, does an impeccable job…

How true this is!! Garden grown!! … Blessing the day! … ‘ Marge Piercy, from “The Art of Blessing the Day” in The Art of Blessing the Day: Poems with a Jewish Theme. © Knopf, 1999.’

Live & Learn

This is the blessing for the first garden tomato:
Those green boxes of tasteless acid the store
sells in January, those red things with the savor
of wet chalk, they mock your fragrant name.
How fat and sweet you are weighing down my palm,
warm as the flank of a cow in the sun.
You are the savor of summer in a thin red skin.
