Victoria Justice, What Makes Me UNIQUE

victoria-justice-puerto-rican


Victoria Justice told Para Todos [Via Perez Hilton] What makes me unique? The fact that I’m half Puerto Rican, and I think that a lot of TV shows and a lot of role models that kids have usually aren’t Hispanic. And I think it’s really cool that I can represent that sort of melting pot.

I think that Latina girls and even guys need to be able to look up to someone who’s similar to them on TV, and I think thats really cool that I could be able to do that and that they can relate to me.

    her being half hispnaic? she needs to shut up cuz she aint nothin special. Selena and Demi are hald hispanic and their better actresses than her. nothing makes her different from anyone else. shes just another teen idol pushed at kids to like and look at, like miley.

    btw, her show is a ripoff of another show that has a REAL hispanic actress, Taina and i loved that show more than her piece of shit.

    no, you are the narrow minded stupid. she right there are not a lot of hispanic out there in the media and is good that finally more hispanic like victoria with a lot of talent in every way have that ability to show other hispanic that they can make it. Also, puerto rican are usually very gorgeous and extremely talented. I think she gorgeous. she prettier than selena and demi. I have a feeling nickelodian is going to be taking over after hannah leaves. Victoria is next hannah montana.

    Love her. But overall race shouldn’t be the reason you watch a certain show, and i don’t think she meant any harm with her comment.

    I love her. And who cares who’s the better actress. Fact is, selena, demi and victoria have their own TV show, I doubt they would have it if there’s now talent in them. Trust me, more people prefer nickoldeon than Disney. Oceanup people are freaking crazy; I mean seriously YOU GUYS ARENT THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WHOLE WIDE FREAKING WORLD. Yes, not EVERY teenage girl or boy go to oceanup. And btw, victorious did a good job for the first time. Soooo many viewers. Including me and some of you. So stfu.
    PS: If y’all haven’t watched Victorious before then you have mo right to complain anyhow. kbye :)

    Selena and demi and anyone at disney and or nick are not actresses. people get over it.

    I agree about Selena also being latina, but I had no idea that Demi Lovato was latina. IDK why, I just kind of feel like she ignores her heritage.

    She’s really pretty just like all people from PR

    Okay. I live where there a bunch of hispanics. Trust me, there’s a lot of racism that comes from Hispanics. They just don’t always take white people seriously. A Hispanic on television, yeah, they’ll take notice and like it. Maybe be inspired. Because a lot of times Hispanics are put down or not given opportunities because of the bad eggs. Seeing Victoria’s success could make a few people feel better.

    who ever said white kids have to look up to white celebrities does not understand what Victoria meant. besides it’s good to have celebrities that have different backgrounds it makes their acting or singing unique and gives kids that have the same background relate to them so there is no reason to criticize her and say she makes you feel bad to be Hispanic wow that’s sad you shouldn’t say that just because you don’t like someone and on top of that you called a really mean name i bet if that was you, you wouldn’t like it so why say it to someone you don’t know that is worst thing you can do call someone something when you don’t know them so next time think about what you say cause you don’t know what people say about you.

    I agree that there are few latin role models but in my own opinion I think her show was kinda lame.

  • Anonymous

    HHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOO, Selena is half latin and Demi is not latin at all!!! Her step-dad is Mexican FYI!!!!! Christina Aguilera is half latin and btw Im sure Victoria was talking about TEEN role models on TV not a 30 yr old married mom. If u really read the article you’ll see THAT’s what she was talking about. I’m 100% latin and they both r awesome!!!!!!!!!! U haters back off my girls

    for your information, demi lovato bairely counts as spanish, almost non of the actors and actresses on tv claiming they are spanish count because #1 they weren’t born in a hispanic/spanish country #2 they either dont speak the language or barely speak or comprehend it, and #3 they Have done WHAT??? for the spanish communtity,??? I would just like to Know. I’m a 19yr old Dominican female and I have yet to see any hispanic actors/actresses that are on disney or nickelodeon that actually look like they are hispanic. They are talented but Demi lovato is not full blooded if i may call it that and dont really know the language all that well and almost all of those famous people are mexican or from that region I have yet to see a child star thats from the carribean islands such as cuba, puerto rico or dominican republic. It’s kind of a shame i think because when you do see them around its more like rated r movies and such and they are already older and are only there for sexual type movies and performances

    Genious she said that most rolemodels aren’t hispanic people. Not that everyone should idolize people within their race. It’s just nice for someone who is of that ethnicity to see the possiblities you can have. Especially since in many place hispanics are a minority. Makes me feel bad to be hispanic.

    shes gorgeous! and so sweet. except demi and selena are latina, too!

  • Camilia

    It”s an interview and it was for “Para todos” dude! Which is a latin magazine….duh and that’s why race came up and they wanted VICTORIA becuz she’s a latin role model. Latin mags look to feature latin girls for role models that why Selena was on the cover of Latina magazine and Victoria was interviewed 4 this one.

  • twycgnb

    what race you are from should not be important or something to be judged by. I don’t get why these ‘celebs’ feel the need to talk about all this. It’s a hazy subject.

    exactly!! this is ridiculous the way she portrays herself as a narrow minded girl. I agree with the person who said that “white people should look up to white stars, and black people to black stars” of course that was a great sarcastic comment to show how ridiculous her statement is. Kids shouldn’t look up to stars based on their race. Also, she is NOT the only hispanic girl who is famous. Is she forgetting Selena Gomez or Demi Lovato?!?! seriously girl grow up!

    Just so you know there isn’t such a thing as ‘races’, the humans themselves are a race, just like the animals and so on, but being puerto rican or american is no race.

    And what is she and all of you talking about that there aren’t many Hispanics in the media?? There are so many that are Hispanics, or even call themselves Hispanics when they can’t even speak spanish and so on..

    yeah selena and demi…. demi just dude a vote latina psa and selena always talks about her heritage

  • Sweetdisposition?

    She is so pretty and I always wondered what her ethnicity was.
