Netflix really flexed its muscle this past summer with some amazing new original series. The Get Down was by far the best to debut! Set in the late seventies at the height of the Disco Era and Dawn of Hip-Hop, this series follows the dreams and aspirations of a barrio boy destined for rap star greatness and the girl he loves, Mylene Cruz, as she pursues her own stardom! That girl is none other than the lovely and talented, Herizen Guardiola, and this week’s Celebrity Crush!
Herizen is amazing, and we are not just talking about her looks. Her voice is truly angelic! Her talents combined with those curves and exotic looks of hers are enough to make any pious man sin! Interestingly, of all her talents it is her acting skills that come to the forefront. You would never guess that this is her big break on television. She should have been a star from birth. As Mylene, we watched a different spin on the age old story of the Preacher’s Kid wanting to join the world against her family’s wishes. She sings about it all on The Get Down all while falling in love.
We have no doubt Herizen will “set us free” as she works more and hopefully releases more music. The real “Get Down” will come when this rising star becomes a household name! Catch her on the next season of The Get Down coming in 2017!
