At the age of 22 Natalie Martinez landed her first role on the small screen in the short-lived series Fashion House. Fast-forward nine years later and the actress has a slew of films and credits to her name.

She began modeling at the age of 15 and was handpicked to be Jennifer Lopez’s brand ambassador in 2002. Martinez then went on to star in Justin Timberlake’s music video for “Señorita,” as well as in videos for Sean Paul and Pitbull and Marc Anthony.

In 2008 she worked alongside Jason Statham and Tyrese in the action flick Death Race. In 2011 she starred in Magic City Memoirs, a story based on the life of director Aaron J. Salgado that tells the tale of three friends in Miami whose lives are put in danger after they indulge in reckless behavior days before their graduation. The drama was produced by Andy Garcia and Salgado and received the Pursuit of Perfection Award during the Miami Film Festival.

Music Monday: Bruno Mars – 2014 Halftime Performance

Killing it doesn’t even begin to describe what Bruno Mars did at the 48th Super Bowl Halftime Show.

While many were thinking it was never going to measure up to last year’s Beyoncé show, they were right. But, in all honesty Bruno Mars did a spectacular job and it was classic and beautiful. No raunchy, no twerking, just plain, good ‘ol fashion music with a little soul.

I mean did you see his sweet dance moves and snazzy gold blazer? His voice speaks volumes and his melodies transcend any booty shakin beat. This was an outstanding performance, suitable for anyone and everyone. The Red Hot Chili Peppers added a rock vibe but we know it was Bruni’s show and I must say I enjoyed every minute of it.

Re-watch or watch his performance for the first time and just sit back and relax.
