Christina Milian is ready for an ancestral project…

The 33-year-old Afro-Cuban American singer and star of her own E! reality series has landed a lead role opposite John Stamos and Josh Peck in Fox’s single-camera comedy pilot Grandpa.

Christina Milian

From ABC Studios and 20th Century Fox Television, the project centers on Jimmy (Stamos), a charismatic longtime bachelor whose life is upended when he discovers he’s a father — and a grandfather.

Peck plays Gerald, the son Jimmy didn’t know he had – a sweet unemployed techie who is himself the proud and surprisingly capable father of a two-year-old daughter, the product of a one-night stand with the sexy Vanessa (Milian), described as a hip, hot mess. Just when she seems to be warming up to Gerald at least, she meets Jimmy — and is instantly attracted to this older, cooler man, a complication that doesn’t bode well for Gerald.

Grandpa was written by Danny Chun.

Milian’s previous television acting credits include appearances on A Gifted Man, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Meet the Browns and Smallville.

Milian Makes Cameo Appearance in Birdman’s “Tapout” Video

If you’ve missed Christina Milian on The Voice, don’t worry… She’ll be back for the live rounds soon. But in the meantime, check her out in her latest cameo…

The 31-year-old Afro-Cuban American singer appears in Birdman’s new video “Tapout.”

Christina Milian & Paris Hilton

It’s the first single off of the Cash Money Records co-founder’s soon-to-be-released album Rich Gang: Flashy Lifestyle; and it features Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Mack Maine and Future,

Along with Birdman’s collaborators, the five-minute clip features appearances by Milian,  Paris Hilton and Kimora Lee Simmons as thieves posing as waitresses in a glamorous cocktail party out to pull off a heist in the ritzy mansion event venue.

In classic cat burglar style, Hilton and Milian successfully manage to break into the safe where all the cash and jewels are stashed. As they are about to escape, the rich owner and the cops get on their trail, capturing Milian but not Hilton, who easily walks away with the loot, giving Milian a knowing wink, revealing that the capture is a clever distraction.

Aguilera & “The Voice” Pay Tribute to the Newton Shooting Victims

Christina Aguilera gives voice to a nation’s mourning following the heartbreaking Newton school shooting…

The Voice Tribute to Newton School Shooting Victims

During Monday night’s episode of The Voice, the 31-year-old half-Ecuadorian American singer joined her fellow coaches, the NBC reality singing competition’s contestants, host Carson Daly and social media correspondent Christina Milian took the stage at the beginning of the show to pay tribute to the 26 victims in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Lined up across the stage, Aguilera and the group gave a solemn and heartfelt performance of Leonard Cohen‘s “Hallelujah,” each holding a card with the name and age of one of the people killed in the tragic incident.

Aguilera held up the card with the name of Grace McDonnell, one of the youngest shooting victims.

Castillo Becomes First to Audition with Spanish Song on “The Voice”

It’s hard to believe in the first two seasons of NBC’s The Voice not a single potential-contestant had auditioned by singing a completely Spanish song.

But that all changed during the second episode of the hit reality show’s third season…

Julio Cesar Castillo

During Tuesday night’s blind auditions, Julio Cesar Castillo—a lifelong mariachi singer—performed Ritchie Valens’ iconic hit “La Bamba.”

“I started singing at the age of three, when I was around six, I fell in love with mariachi,” Castillo told the cameras before his audition. “For the last couple of years, I’ve been playing in a mariachi band three nights a week to support my family. In my family, me, my mom and my younger sister are the only one’s working right now. My dad was diagnosed with epilepsy. But it’s my time to do something more.”

Christina Aguilera & Julio Cesar Castillo

The self-proclaimed “Mariachi Man,” who hails from Chicago, performed the entire song in Spanish… a big risk that paid off. Not only did Castillo bring the audience to its feet, he inspired a bidding war between The Voice coaches Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green. (Surprisingly, Christina Aguilera didn’t turn her chair, even though she performed some air-maraca moves while listening to Castillo’s performance.)

Shelton immediately turned his chair around, and Green followed suit at the very end.

“You saw how quickly I turned around. I just think you have a very strong and technically good voice, it’s very powerful,” Shelton told Castillo. He then went on to talk about how Castillo’s letterman-like jacket reminded him of being in a school gym, and told Castillo to picture a banner hanging on the side of a gym saying “Blake Shelton, Season Two winner” to motivate him to pick him over Green, which Castillo did.

The Voice’s social media correspondent Christina Milian seemed to appreciate Castillo becoming the first contestant to audition with a song entirely in Spanish.

“I love that we’re showing some #LatinLove on #TheVoice this season!,” tweeted the Latina singer. “@JulioCCastle is killing it with the Mariachi vocals!”

Castillo, who learned to play the guitar at 10 and also plays the saxophone, writes on his Twitter page: “Madly in love with music and hope to some day live the dream I’ve had my whole life.”

It appears he’s officially living the dream as part of Team Blake on NBC’s The Voice.
