Entertainment Turn Off the Lights, Because Bad Bunny’s Launching Glow-In-The-Dark Crocs: See Pics
Will (Yet Another) Category Rethink Change Urbano’s Fate at the Grammys?
Latin’s dominant genre keeps getting lumped in with others at the Grammys. This year, a category rethink might change that.Excitement about that change was shortlived. By 2009, the genre was lumped back in with Latin rock and alternative, where it has remained for the past 12 years. Since then, only three urbano (reggaetón, hip-hop, trap) artists have won the category. In 2018 — arguably the height of urbano’s recent renaissance thanks to the global success of artists like J Balvin, Bad Bunny and Ozuna — not a single reggaetón album was nominated. Even at the 2019 Latin Grammys, reggaetón artists were excluded from the main award categories.

Everything Famous ’Beverly Hills, 90210' Guest Stars Have Said Over the Years .
Every Beverly Hills, 90210 guest star has a story — and they didn’t all split a piece of pie with the cast at the Peach Pit.

And while there was plenty of drama onscreen, some of the behind-the-scenes tales from the set have continued to make headlines years after the show wrapped. Doherty and Garth, for example, have been open about their rocky relationship during the first four seasons of the series. “We were locked in this sound stage for 14-16 hours every day,” the What I Like About You star wrote in her 2014 Book, Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde. “There were times when we loved each other and there were times when we wanted to claw each other’s eyes out … It was more of just young girls finding their way and finding their individual voices. … Poor Tori, the youngest of the three of us was, inevitably, often caught in the middle and she was always trying to smooth things over.” Garth later recalled a physical fight with Doherty during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen in August 2019. “I can only remember one incident and that was when, yeah, we took it outside,” she said. “I’m a midwestern girl.
