    What about the French speaking Latin America? They are latinos too.

  • retrobanana

    and why are we so concerned about any South American country anyway….definately a continent I could care less about….okay maybe the supermodels that come from there are pretty darn hot…and I myself own a chinchilla …but really have no intrest in brasil or Argentina or chile (what the heck else is down there anyway)…really anything past the carribean isn’t on my radar… me if you’re from S. America you’re latin…get over it…..Now lets talk about a more interesting continent: Antarctica.

  • Ayiti

    Why wouldn’t the French Caribbean be considered latino. According to your points about Brazil fitting under the “Latino” category, French speaking Latin America fits into this genre as well. I honestly feel people purposely exclude the French speaking Latin America because it has dominant Afro-population in which they recognize.

    @Rico: La La is on the cover…


    @ Ayiti
    I think so too about the french speakingcountries from the Americas being excluded from Latine culture because being Black, the predominantly feeling is more of them being africans than latine from african ancestors.

    Italian americans are excluded because they are parts of the ‘English speaking Americans so while being technically latine by blood, they are also anglo saxon too by culture.

    if Lala is on the cover they must have bleached the living daylights out of her because I certainly don’t recognize her and I have seen her in person she was never this light.

  • jj17

    Pretty much all of them are dating white boys. Am just saying.

  • Marco

    Portuguese are Portuguese we are not Spanish nor are we Latino. Portuguese are a European country so learn the difference. We have our own culture, language, history, people and everything else that makes a many a separate people. There are some people who think Portuguese sound a lot like Italian and think the are the same language and people.

  • Papi

    Jessica Alba is part Danish.
    Salma Hayek is part Lebanese.
    Jessica has never called herself Latina and thinks of herself as American only. With Salma, it’s not too kool to say you are Arab.

  • http://deleted Lyla Says

    @Marco: Portuguese and Italian do sound very similar, but Portuguese and Spanish–the WRITTEN versions–are also quite similar.

    Spain is a European country, too. Both Spain and Portugal are Iberian countries andneighbors.

    Brazilian Portuguese is different from Portugal’s Portuguese.
    Brazilians who think they’re so different from their Spanish-speaking neighbors are fooling themselves. My point is that Brazil is not all that different from other Latin-American countries, culturally or racially.

    Brazil’s lingusitic difference is the MAJOR difference. Otherwise, Brazil and its neighbors were occupied by the same people (Iberian Europeans–Spain and Portugal, West Africans and Indigenous Americans).

  • Cha Cha

    Argentina is a white country end of. Italian, Spanish and French. Your ignorance is showing envious nobody.

  • paul

    i wonder how all they look without photoshop… this is like the perfect ad to see the wonders and (horrors) photoshop can do…

  • tincin

    Brazilian Portuguese is infused with African lexicon and there culture is much more heavily influenced by Yoruba/Nigerian culture and that is not the same as its Spanish speaking neighbors. Also its European population is vastly different because Brazil has immigrants from all over Europe not just one area. The Catholicism in Brazil is also different with its elements of Umbanda and Candomble. Brazil has always had a much higher African population than the other countries surrounding them.

  • http://deleted Lyla Says

    @Cha Cha: I don’t care if they consider themselves white. Their white supremacy doesn’t make them any better than their neighbors, like they believe.That’s my issue with those a-holes. Argentina is still a bankrupt, second-world country, no better than any of the countries in Latin-America, despite them claiming to be “pure” white.

    The fact that Argentineans can deny the existence of Africans and Indigenous people is disgusting, also.

    Like I said, maybe Argentina can explain where the Tango comes from, if not from Afr-Argentineans.

  • milo

    Selena looks beautiful and Shakira looks great and skinier.

  • Henriquez

    @jj17: They all prefer those white Anglo bloodlines don’t they so that their children will be even less Latino than they are who do they think they’re fooling? Want to be as white looking as possible.

  • shimmy

    there’s a big discussion here on this post about whether brazilians are latinos or not. I asked a brazilian friend, and she said she considers herself latina, but another told me she didn’t. Since there doesn’t seem to be a clear cut answer, I just go with: it varies with the person’s opinion.


    It’s not a question, it’s a fact.
    Brasilians are latines by culture, some of them being latine by ancestors too.
    Brasil was founded by Portugal, a latine european country. They speak portuguese, a latine european language and the closest one to spanish. Yes like many countries, their former exclusively latine culture was blended with other culture with the diffrent people forming different communities of the brasilian society : Portugues, africans, natives, firstly, then italians, germans and french more recently, a big community of lebanese and chineze.
    In fact a portuguese understand 80 % of spanish and vice versa. Many words are wrtitten the same way but pronounced differently. The two countries spain and portugal sharing a unique and common border
    I think Americans, wether from the north or from the south have dissolve the true meaning and essence of” latine” and often mix latin with hispanic when latine is related to 5 latine original countries and NOT JUST Spain.
    In the americas there are the lusophone (people who are from portuguese language) and the hispanic (people from spanish language). Both Lusophones and hispanics are latine.
    Wheter they accept it or not is another story but they BOTH fall under the latine definition just like Spaniards and Portuguese are latines in the same way as are italians, romanians and french people. They all are latine EUROPEAN as opposed to anglo saxon EUROPEANS or slavic EUROPEANS or scandinavian EUROPEANS.

    @Henriquez: Don’t project your issues and insecurities onto these ladies.
    It’s mostly wetback men like yourself who think like that.

  • MarilynandtheDiamonds

    Selena Gomez doesn’t even know anything about the Latin culture. Can’t even speak Spanish!

  • just sayin

    Oh please, why would they leave Jlo out…that is plain dumb!!!!

  • me

    Zoe is the token black lol…

  • Thequeerofallmedia


    If they are not..they should..

  • Don’t forget that Alexis Bledel is half-Mexican (mother’s side) and half-Argentinian (father’s side). I love her since the Gilmore Girls were around. The last time when Alexis Bledel was naked was in Sin City (2005). I also saw the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants sequels.

  • Thequeerofallmedia

    I’ m Glad i have set fire on this Topic…I hope Latina Magazine will apologize for not having Brazilian women on the Magazine…I would like to know what Latina Magazine think about this controversy..

  • humans are sad

    I read all these posts and they are interesting but don’t you all get ONE major point: DIVIDE and CONQUER in full swing. So Brazilians are not Latino but Hispanic. Caribbean blacks are not Latino but Caribbean. Etc etc etc. Don’t you see it is a why to divide and conquer? It is ABSURD!!! Shakira rocks btw! Celia Crz: the greatest Latina to have ever lived

    Michelle Rodriguez isn’t white. She’s half Puerto Rican/half Dominican.

    Again, Michelle Rodriguez is on there and she’s half Puerto Rican (and half Dominican).

    @Thequeerofallmedia: It doesn’t matter what you think since Brazilians are Brazilian and have there own media and it’s not in any way Spanish.

    @lala: Penelope is Spanish therefore European not Latino. Her people were the slave masters who owned you present day Latinos.

  • Keene

    @MarilynandtheDiamonds: That’s because most of these women are part white and could care less about you desperate Hispanics trying to claim them. They are laughing at you while they skip to the bank.

  • Carnival

    @Jen MANSTEALIN: They don’t have a LATIN culture why is that so hard for you to understand. The culture of Brazil is composed of African and many different European cultures they don’t have one single culture in Brazil. It is a multi-ethnic, multi-racial, multi-cultural country just like the United States. The majority of Brazilians also describe themselves by color not culture.

  • Grace

    @MarilynandtheDiamonds: Of course she doesn’t since like Jessica Alba she thinks of herself as American only since they are both half white they have a lot in common.


    @ Carnival
    Where in my post did i said that they have one single culture ? No american country has a single culture, none of them ! they have all been mixed with local culture, different european and african culture as well as asian one, including the US.
    Now YOU should understand that they are latine because their language, their original culture comes from Portugal, hence they speak the languageof their primal ancestor of the country named Brasil which is one of the main significant tool that link you to your heritage, at least the one that was the main one upon which the society was based at its origin.
    You people think that latine should be declined in one single version, the hispanic one as if hispanic countries were the only latine ones in the world when even between them there are huge differences with countries like venezualla that is more ethnically and culturally closer to Brasil than let’s say very european Argentina. Or like Peru with a massive native culture more indian native than spanish.
    It’s like you think being latine is only being of one single type : spanish with nothing else whatsoever and that you can’t be brasilian AND latine.
    Sorry to burst your bubbles but indeed Brasil is considered a latine country because that’s the original culture it was built on firstly was portuguese, not african, not german, not anglo saxon but portuguese, hence latine.

    They ALL look photoshoped to some extent…really disapointed.

  • sianna

  • alessandra

    Shakira, I hate your hair!

  • Anne


    What does that have to do with anything? She was raised in America. We speak English here.

  • Laura muller


  • jazmín

    Wow, why everyone is so upset just because their countries dont appear in a magazine?!. As a latina, I don’t feel represented by these woman at ALL!. they are not REAL latinas anyway, just some blood (in many cases rejected) most of them even speak spanish! and those of them that DO speak spanish are traitors. Shakira for example, she (tries) to sound (and be) sooo american and you even understand the lyrics of her songs…SO c’mon stop bothering. I don’t feel more than anyone (argentinian btw) and those fellows who does…f*ck ‘em, and for those who are critisazing my country f*ck ‘em too, we’re not all racist!!!!

    ps: shakira, that american-blonde-hairstyle DOESN’T fit on you so…could you please go back to be who you used to be?
