Menudo Visits CosmoGIRL Offices

The guys from Menudo made jean jackets for charity in the CosmoGIRL office, and the mag documented the pop group’s visit with a video clip recorded a few months ago but just posted on their YouTube channel.

Monti talked about how each member’s style is reflected in their singing and dancing, and the guys performed a capella.

“Each one of us has a different style in the group,” Monti said. “So each one of us, that style reflects not only on the singing but also on the dancing. So my style, I’m like the Latin guy of the group. You name it I like it. I can dance it and I can sing it to. I just love the Latin culture. Anything that’s Latin like Latin food, I love it. Carlos is into urban. Very, very hip hop. Chris is the R&B guy. Jose, pop rock. Emmanuel, he’s like the tone guy. His accent brings this spice to the group. This special thing that girls just go wild for his accent. With all these styles, they come together and they form Menudo.”

Menudo’s Carlos Olivero Booted From Delta Flight


People has learned Carlos Olivero of Menudo was escorted by security off a Delta flight in Atlanta on July 4th after the 18-year-old refused to put away his iPod. “A flight attendant accused Carlos of having an attitude after she asked him to turn off his iPod in preparation for takeoff,” a source told the magazine. “Carlos complied and turned his iPod off, but the flight attendant then demanded he stow it. Carlos showed her again that the iPod was turned off, but he refused to stow it.” It was at that point the Delta airlines security team was brought on to escort Carlos and his mother off the plane. That prompted his bandmates, the Menudo tech crew and management to also leave the plane. The group then boarded another flight bound for Knoxville, where they were scheduled to perform at the Star 102.1 FM Festival. Read more.
