This is a reunion for Martin and Murphy, who first cast the Latin music superstar in an episode of his Fox series Glee.

Versace, from Fox 21 and FX Productions, is based on the book Vulgar Favors by Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth.

Tom Rob Smith is writing the first two and multiple subsequent episodes, and Murphy, who received an Emmy nomination for directing the opening episode of The People v. O.J. Simpsonwill direct the first hour.

A dedicated global advocate for tolerance via his Ricky Martin Foundation, Martin can be seen in Las Vegas at his residency at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino.

Versace, from Fox 21 and FX Productions., is based on the book Vulgar Favors by Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth. Tom Rob Smith is writing the first two and multiple subsequent episodes, and Murphy, who received an Emmy nomination for directing the opening episode of The People v. O.J.

Lovato Poses Nude, Without Makeup or Retouching, for Vanity Fair

Demi Lovato is expressing her right to bare arms and more…

The 23-year-old part-Mexican American singer/actress has participated in a special nude photo shoot with Vanity Fair.

Demi Lovato Vanity Fair

The pictorial, not part of a pre-calculated media stint, was Lovato’s way of making a statement about confidence, as the “Cool for the Summer” singer posed without any makeup or retouching in the nude.

“I thought there was something incredible about the idea of no makeup whatsoever, no clothes and no retouching,” she said in a Vanity Fair video interview. “I would have never thought that I would have ever got to a place in my life where I would feel comfortable doing that. It’s empowering me and it shows other women that you can get to a place where you can overcome the obstacles of body image issues and you can feel comfortable and confident in your skin.”

Lovato has openly discussed her battles with eating disorders in the past, so for her to expose herself in this way holds significant personal importance.

“I basically went from hating every single inch of my body to working on myself and trying to figure out ways to love myself and love the skin that I’m in,” she continued. “I learned after working very hard on my spirituality and my soul and my body, I learned that you can get to a place where you love the skin that you’re in and I’m excited to share that with the world.”

The whole photo shoot came together with a sort of right-place-at-the-right-time scenario. Vanity Fair photographer Patrick Ecclesine was in New York for a piece on Phil McIntyre, C.E.O. of music talent-management firm Philymack, who has launched careers of pop stars including Nick Jonas and Lovato, who Ecclesine had shot once before.

Lovato’s great-grandfather Buddy Moore had died the day before and when she showed up they discussed her sadness. From there, it was Lovato’s idea to do the shoot right then and there at 12:30 a.m. in a New York hotel room.

It’s no coincidence, however, Lovato has a new album coming out on October 16 called Confident.

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past day, it’s that life is too short,” Ecclesine recalled Lovato telling him. “I’m about to launch an album that finally represents who I truly am. How do I embrace this new chapter in my life? How do I really walk the walk? What does it mean to be confident? It means letting go, being authentic, saying I don’t give a fuck and this is who I am. I want to show the side of me that’s real, that’s liberated, that’s free. What if we do a photo shoot where it’s totally raw? Super-sexy, but no makeup, no fancy lighting, no retouching, and no clothing. Let’s do it here, let’s do it now.”

Longoria Ready to Hit the Campaign Trail as Obama’s National Co-Chair

Eva Longoria is taking her role as a national co-chair on President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign seriously…

“As soon as the show wraps, I’m going on the campaign trail and going to the swing states,” the Desperate Housewives star told The Hollywood Reporter at a pre-Oscar bash, which she co-hosted with Vanity Fair. “Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, and I’m probably going to Florida as well.”

The 36-year-old Mexican-American actress, a loyal Obama supporter who hosted a special Latino fundraiser for the president in Los Angeles last year, says she’s planning to focus her campaigning efforts on influencing two key groups that hold close ties to her heart.

“Just really messaging to not only to the Latino community, but the female community,” she explained.

Obama may have won the Latino vote in 2008, but in recent years some activists have been disappointed in the president’s indecision on the issue of comprehensive immigration reform. And, other one-time Obama-supporters have also started to think differently about their choice.

“I always find that really odd,” said Longoria. “Because he’s really made some bold promises and he’s kept them.” The actress went on to explain promises she believes the president has kept, including healthcare and “holding Wall Street accountable for their contributions to the economy.”

“There are so many things that he has delivered on that I find people overlook,” she continued. “And I think the rhetoric against him is so sharp from the primaries, that it’s dangerous for people to buy into the misinformation that’s out there.”

So what’s Longoria’s message to undecided voters?

“I think people really just have to educate themselves on what he has done, what he is still doing and what he is going to do.”
