WATCH. If you love music, your DVR has to be set to HBO Latino this Saturday for a double-header with Santana! Corazon: Live From Mexico starts with a half-hour special on the making of the legendary singer’s concert to celebrate his first-ever Latin music album, and then it’s on to the historic concert itself. The DivaGals attended a VIP screening of the documentary, in which Santana shares the origin of his music (it’s in African rhythms) and unveils his star-studded lineup for his show, which features top names in the Latin music industry. Asked what was his favorite part of the concert during an intimate Q&A after the screening, he answered, “hugging my son Salvador and kissing my wife Cindy,” who participated in the concert. Music truly is a family affair for the Santanas! Catch Corazon: Live From Mexico, Saturday, May 3 at 8 p.m. on HBO Latino.
WATCH 2. As soon as I heard that Bill Cosby was receiving the Johnny Carson Award at the American Comedy Awards ΓÇô airing Saturday ΓÇô I knew I had to be front and center on that red carpet. Of course, when you are dealing with the iconic comedian you better be prepared for anything. Here is part of our exchange:
Mr. Cosby: I just got off the train. I had to fire, start off the Philadelphia high school boys’ 4×4 race at Franklin Field. And at the University of Pennsylvania, I had to run a 4×4 relay.
Me: You ran it yourself?
Mr. Cosby: Hello operator! Now wait letΓÇÖs — journalistically youΓÇÖve had English. I said I had to run and then you said: you ran it yourself? (Clears throat) I had to run; I ran in a 4×4 rely race.
Me: Well, go on with your bad self!
Schooled in journalistic endeavors by Mr. Cosby himself? I’ll take that! Catch the American Comedy Awards, airing Thursday May 8 on NBC.
WATCH 3. Remember that song “I Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt?
