IS FUCKING HAPPY!!!
So here’s an idea. Let’s stop saying she is making a comeback or even needs to. Some of these achievements listed happened WHILST she was in her “breakdown”. She hasn’t stopped. She continues to slay this industry daily. So STFU about her comebacks, she’s been having a comeback every year for the last ten years as far as any of you are concerned and it’s time to stop saying that!

Anthony is also the top selling tropical salsa artist of all time. The two-time Grammyand four-time Latin Grammy winner has sold more than 12 million albums worldwide. He is best known for his Latin salsa numbers and ballads. Anthony has won numerous awards, and his achievements have been honored through various recognitions. He was the recipient of the 2009 Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) Chair’s Award. He also received the “2009 CHCI Chair’s Lifetime Achievement Award” on September 16, 2009.
Marco Antonio Muñiz, known professionally by his stage name Marc Anthony, was born in New York City, to Puerto Rican parents Guillermina, a housewife, and Felipe Muñiz, a musician and hospital lunchroom worker from Guayama, Puerto Rico. Anthony’s parents named him after Mexican singer Marco Antonio Muñiz. Anthony grew up in East Harlem, also known as Spanish Harlem and El Barrio, and is the youngest of eight surviving children. He was raised Roman Catholic.
Muñiz began his career as a session vocalist for freestyle and Underground New York house music acts. After changing his name to avoid confusion with his namesake, Anthony worked as a songwriter and backing vocalist for pop acts including Menudo and the Latin Rascals. His first album was a freestyle music record, “Rebel”, in 1988 on Bluedog Records. That same year he wrote and produced “Boy I’ve Been Told” for fellow freestyle artist Sa-Fire. Then in 1989, he sang backup vocals for Ann-Marie on the freestyle club hit, “With or Without You” produced by Little Louie Vega and Todd Terry. A year later, 1990, with Little Louie Vega and Todd Terry, Marc wrote and whispered a duet with Chrissy I-eece, called “You Should Know By Now”. In 1992, still working with Todd Terry, he provided vocals for “Love Change” which is on the flip-side of a 12" vinyl released by Elan and The Powermachine titled “Here’s Your Hat”, production of Todd Terry. At the same time, he collaborated with music producer Little Louie Vega, who featured the singer on many another freestyle-flavored club hits “Ride On The Rhythm” and the “When The Night Is Over” album, which featured the Freestyle classic “Time”. In 1992, Vega and Anthony opened for Latin bandleader Tito Puente at New York's Madison Square Garden. After 1992, he changed his style from freestyle to salsa and other Latin styles.
Otra Nota (1993) Anthony was initially reluctant to become a salsa musician and declined an offer to make a salsa album when Ralph Mercado, president of RMM Records, asked him. Anthony was in a taxi when he heard Juan Gabriel’s hit song, “Hasta Que Te Conocí” which influenced him to change his mind and ask Mercado if he could record it as a salsa tune. Inspired by the music of Tito Puente, Hector Lavoe, Rubén Blades and Juan Gabriel, Anthony released his Spanish-language debut, Otra nota, in 1993. Anthony performed at the Radio y Musica Convention hosted by Alfredo Alonso. "Si Tu No Te Fueras", “El Ultimo Beso”, “Palabras Del Alma”, The album also included a cover of Bread’s song, “Make It with You”. Subsequent tours throughout the Americas, including an opening slot for Blades, established Anthony as one of the new stars in salsa. In 1994, he was featured in La India’s album Dicen Que Soy, on the song “Vivir Lo Nuestro”.
His 1995 follow-up, Todo a su tiempo, won Anthony a Billboard award for Hot Tropical Artist of the Year. The album was also nominated for a Grammy with songs like “Te Conozco Bien”, “Hasta Ayer”, “Nadie Como Ella”, “Se Me Sigue Olvidando”, “Te Amare”, and “Llegaste A Mi”. The album has sold more than 800,000 copies and has become established gold in the US and in Puerto Rico.
Anthony’s next Spanish language album, Contra La Coriente, was followed by the television special Marc Anthony: The Concert from Madison Square Garden, broadcast on HBO onValentine’s Day 2000. The special was nominated for Music Special of the Year from TV Guide. The album’s song “Y Hubo Alguien” became his first number-one single on the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks Chart and the first by a salsa musician. The album became the first salsa album to enter the English language Billboard 200 chart. After an ongoing battle with RMM, he severed ties with Ralph Mercado and left the label in 1999.
In 1999, riding the crossover wave of Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin in the Anglophone market, Anthony, working with producers Walter Afanasieff, Cory Rooney, Dan Shea, and Rodney Jerkins, released an English-language, self-titled album with the US Top 5 single “I Need to Know”, and the Spanish version, “Dímelo”. His song “You Sang To Me” was featured in Runaway Bride. A dance version was remixed by Dutch producer Rene Van Verseveld. The album debuted at number eight on the Billboard album chart, and six weeks later went platinum; it eventually was certified triple platinum.The song “I Need To Know” earned a Grammy nomination for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.
In June 2004, Anthony released a Latin pop album, Amar Sin Mentiras. The following month, he reintroduced its songs with a danceable salsa rhythm in another album, Valio La Pena. The song “Escapémonos” was a duet with Jennifer Lopez. In the 2005 Latin Grammy Awards, his Amar Sin Mentiras won best Latin Pop Album of The Year, and his Valió La Pena won Best Tropical Album of the Year. Lopez and Anthony performed “Escapémonos” at the 2005 Grammy Awards.In 2001, he debuted another salsa album, Libre, which was certified gold with songs like “Celos”, “Este Loco Que Te Mira”, and “Viviendo”. The album spent 14 weeks at the number-one spot on the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart. The year after that, he made another English-language album, Mended.
On December 2012, it was announced that Anthony was recording a salsa album alongside with longtime producer Sergio George. Vivir Mi Vida, a Spanish adaptation of Khaled’s song “C'est la vie”, was released as the lead single on April 25, 2013. In July 2013, Anthony released 3.0, a salsa album including his song “Vivir Mi Vida”. Since the release, the album has been certified Platinum. In addition to the new album, Anthony announced his Vivir Mi Vida World Tour, and plans to travel across 15 countries on 3 continents.On July 11, 2006, Anthony released Sigo Siendo Yo, a Spanish greatest-hits album. On May 2010 he released Iconos, a tribute to old Latin songs by artists such as José Luis Perales, Juan Gabriel and José José. In 2012, he released a new song called “Cautivo De Este Amor.” In the same year, Anthony was inducted into the Billboard Latin Music Hall of Fame.
Anthony also sang “God Bless America” at Major League Baseball’s All-Star game in New York on July 16, 2013. While Anthony is an American citizen, born and raised in New York of Puerto Rican descent, numerous offensive tweets made the rounds, saying “shouldn’t an American be singing God Bless America?” under the mistaken belief that Anthony is actually from Mexico or Cuba. The Anti-Defamation League spoke out against the offensive tweets.
In 1994, Anthony’s ex-girlfriend Debbie Rosado, a NYC police officer, gave birth to their daughter Ariana.
Marc married former Miss UniverseDayanara Torres on May 9, 2000 in Las Vegas. They have two sons, Cristian Anthony Muñiz (February 5, 2001) who Anthony named after the Mexican singer Cristian Castro, and Ryan Anthony Muñiz (August 16, 2003). There were many problems in the marriage, and the couple separated in early 2002. They later reconciled and renewed their vows in a formal ceremony on December 7, 2002 at San Juan’s Cathedral in Puerto Rico. The rocky marriage came to an end in October 2003 with Dayanara filing for divorce in January 2004. To help in her recovery from the divorce, Dayanara traded her engagement ring for a diamond-encrusted Cartier watch and wrote the book Married to Me: How Committing to Myself Led to Triumph After Divorce.
When his divorce proceedings began, Anthony was spotted with long-time friend Jennifer Lopez. Prior to his first marriage and her second, they had briefly dated. Lopez and Anthony married on June 5, 2004, less than a week after his divorce was finalized. Guests had been invited to an “afternoon party”, unaware they were attending a wedding. Lopez gave birth to their children, twins Emme Maribel Muñiz and Maximillian David Muñiz on February 22, 2008. People (magazine) paid $6 million for the first photos of the twins. In 2009, Anthony and Lopez purchased a stake in the Miami Dolphins. They joined several personalities in buying small stakes in the club, including Gloria and Emilio Estefan, Venus and Serena Williams, and Fergie.They bought two houses in Brookville, New York but Anthony and Lopez announced their separation in July 2011, with Anthony filing for divorce on April 9, 2012. Their divorce was finalized on June 18, 2014, with Lopez winning primary custody of the children.
Remember CeCe Frey from season 2 of The X Factor USA? She just independently released her powerful debut single, “Dead 2 Me”.
“Wow. If I were a Universal or Sony executive I’d be punching my head against the wall. Her song "Dead 2 Me” sounds like a pop hit. It’s very Katy Perry/Kesha and definitely something Bonnie Mckee would write. CeCe has created a solid debut single, and I am totally impressed.“ -DirectLyrics Review
