Perez joins Kate Moss, Jerry Hall, Jean Paul Gaultier and Stella McCartney on the list of celebrities making cameo appearances in the film.

The movie sees Edina and Patsy oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to: shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forevermore.

The team behind the camera includes Mandie Fletcher, directing from a script by Saunders.

In the high-energy clip, Lovato shows her support for the LGBT community in the music video.

Premiering on VEVO on Thursday, it was shot at the annual L.A. Pride parade in West Hollywood earlier this month.

Channeling her inner rock star, the former Disney Channel star performs the song smack dab in the middle of the parade. In another scene, she joins a number of fans who dance while lip-syncing to the track. Also making appearances are collaborator Cher Lloyd, Perez Hilton and “special guest” Wilmer Valderrama.

“Really Don’t Care” is the fourth single from Lovato’s 2013 self-titled album Demi. It was originally a break-up song, but the singer has turned into a song with a purpose.

“One of my good friends who is gay, we were talking about this and he said, ‘You know what? I would really like to see someone stand up for us.’ So when I heard that idea I said, ‘Absaf**kinglutley that’s amazing.’ And I love that we were able to turn this song into an empowering anthem rather than just another negative break-up song,” she explained in an interview with MTV. “It goes for not just people in the LGBT community, but for anyone that’s been bullied.”

Telo’s International Hit “Ai Se Eu Te Pego” Tops Billboard Latin Charts

It may have been released more than four months ago, but Michel Teló’s international hit “Ai Se Eu Te Pego” has finally catapulted its way to the top of the Billboard charts.

The 31-year-old Brazilian country singer and songwriter’s song, which has reached No. 1 in 15 countries across Europe, Eastern Europe and Latin America since its release last November, has reached the peak on the Billboard Latin Songs chart and the Billboard Latin Pop Songs chart.

Michel Telo

The single—which has been covered by Pitbull, praised by Perez Hilton and danced to by soccer stars like Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo after scoring goals has a catchy repetitive chorus, accordion hook and lyrics about a guy trying to seduce a girl.

The song was officially written in 2008 by Sharin Acioly, who first heard the phrase from a group of girls in Port Seguro who were singing and dancing to a song they’d come up with as a joke.

Teló heard the song in Salvador during a forro concert last year and decided he wanted to perform the song to a Sertanejo (Brazilian country music) rhythm. So he reached out to Acioly and they worked out a deal.

In no time, the soccer community helped bring “Ai Se Eu Te Pego” to millions around the globe. Teló has publicly thanked soccer star Neymar who plays for Brazil’s Santos club for popularizing the song with choreography he created in the team locker room.

Ronaldo and his teammate Marcelo followed in Neymar’s footsteps by celebrating goals by dancing to the song. Later a video was released of AC Milan‘s Robinho, Thiago Silva and Pato performing the choreography on a bus and suddenly the song was a global phenomenon.

Ai Se Eu Te Pego” even made its way to the NBA thanks to Rudy Fernandez and a video of him and his Denver Nuggets teammates dancing to the track.

The official music video has been viewed more than 280 million times on YouTube, and has been translated and subtitled in multiple languages including English, Polish and Italian. And, Telo’s record label, Som Livre, estimates that the single has been downloaded two million times around the world.

The 33-year-old Cuban American blogger will be joining the team on Univision’s popular program El Gordo y la Flaca.

National Coming Out Day: Eight Out & Proud Latino Celebrities…

It’s National Coming Out Day, a day to celebrate gay pride and promote government and public awareness of gay, bisexual, lesbian and transgender rights.

Founded by Robert Eichberg and Jean O’Leary on October 11, 1988 in celebration of the second gay march in Washington D.C. a year earlier, many choose this day to come out to their family, friends and co-workers.

To commemorate National Coming Out Day, here’s a look at eight out and proud Latino celebrities.

Ricky Martin
Rumors swirled about Ricky Martin’s sexual orientation well before he came out of the closet. During an interview with Barbara Walters, the journalist even grilled Martin about his sexuality. He refused to confirm or deny the rumors, until March 29, 2010. That’s the day the 39-year-old Puerto Rican singing sensation announced on his website that he is “a fortunate homosexual man.” So what prompted Martin to come out? He credited the twin sons he fathered with an egg donor and surrogate with giving him the courage to make the decision, as well as the process of penning his autobiography. “Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth,” he professed. “And this is something worth celebrating.”


Christian Chávez
Long before Ricky Martin declared himself a “proud homosexual man,” 28-year-old Mexican pop singer and actor Christian Chávez—then a member of popular Mexican music group RBD—came out of the closet publicly in 2007. “Don’t judge me for being honest,” Chávez wrote in the group’s website. Earlier this year, he released a video for his song, “Libertad,” a glossy five minute-plus video that notched more than 1 million views on YouTube in only three days, aided along the way by heavy props from Pérez Hilton, who makes a cameo appearance. It’s all part of his outspoken support of gay rights and opposition of homophobia.

Nicholas Rodriguez
Even though he’s a seasoned Broadway veteran who has appeared in “Tarzan” and “Evita,” Nicholas Rodriguez is best known for playing the role of Nick Chavez on ABC’s One Life to Live. The openly gay actor from Austin, Texas formed part of the first gay love triangle on American daytime television. “The character was just supposed to come in and get between [same-sex couple] Kyle and Fish and go away,” recalls the 34-year-old Rodriguez. “But people liked it and everything started to happen really fast. They started writing new scenes and tackling all these subjects. I didn’t have time to think about being out actor Nick Rodriguez playing a gay character. I was just supposed to be there for four days!” Since leaving “One Life to Live,” Rodriguez has volunteered for several youth organizations, a cause important to him. “We’re able to be out and have more of a presence as a gay community,” he says, “and kids are able to come out earlier and earlier. But then what happens to them? Some of them get kicked out and bullied in school. While I’m excited that they’re able to come out at 10, 11, 15, 16 they still need guidance. These kids need role models.”

Vicci Martinez
She has been performing since the age of 16, but the Tacoma, Washington native rose to fame this summer when she appeared on NBC’s reality singing competition “The Voice.” Martinez, who ended up coming in third on the hit show, came out to her devoutly religious mom and dad while a teenager. “It was hard for me coming out to my parents,” recalls Martinez, who says she’ll never hide who she is. “I’ve already gone through that hurdle and I’m not going to go through it again. I’ve had people say, ‘Well, why don’t you just keep them guessing? You can hit all the markets.’ No. Especially if you’re with somebody; it’s so disrespectful.” 

Perez Hilton
Mario Lavandeira, better known as Perez Hilton, is the self-proclaimed “Queen of all Media.” The openly gay celebrity gossip blogger writes about celebrities all the time on his notorious gossip blog PerezHilton.com. The 33-year-old Cuban-American has earned plenty of praise from his fans, even from fellow gossip columnist Michael Musto. “Perez is great because he’s fearless, rambunctious and gayer than Ikea on Super Bowl Sunday,” he says. “He’s the new me!”

Wilson Cruz
He rose to fame playing gay high school student Rickie Vasquez on MTV’s critically acclaimed and gone-to-soon series, “My So-Called Life.” As an openly gay actor, the 37-year-old Puerto-Rican-American has served as an advocate for gay youth, especially gay youth of color. Having been reportedly kicked out of his home by his own father, Cruz has helped raised awareness about homelessness among gay teens.

Richard Rodriguez
Mexican-American writer Richard Rodriguez is Catholic, Republican and gay. He has received acclaim and criticism for his works Hunger of Memory, Days of Obligation—a Pulitzer Prize finalist—and Brown. In 2008, the 67-year-old Rodriguez spoke to Salon.com about being a gay Latino, explaining, “In my own my family…it would have been impossible for them to have dealt with the words ‘gay’ or ‘homosexual’ in my relationship with them. They didn’t want it said, they didn’t want it named or defined, but they assumed it and accepted it. These communities have very intricate ways of dealing with these things and they are not necessarily the highly politicized tactics that you see in traditional middle-class society in America.”

Mondo Guerra
Fashion designer Mondo Guerra rose to fame after appearing on the eighth season of the popular “Project Runway” reality series. But the 33-year-old Mexican-American won’t be known as the contestant who came in second place, he’ll be remembered as the person who bravely revealed his HIV Positive status to the panel of judges, and that had been keeping his HIV status a secret for ten years. Since appearing on the show, the the Denver-native has served as a positive role model in the game community and helped raise awareness for GLBT issues, including commemorating World AIDS Day
