Happy Belated B-Day, Gloria Estefan! Crossfade Writes a Love Note to Our Favorite Cubanita

Dear Gloria,

Mama, que pena. We forgot your birthday, and that's unforgivable. And can you believe we even set a reminder on our iPhone?

Anyhow, we were shocked to learn you turned 54 yesterday. You still look like that sexy Cubanita from the "Dr. Beat" video. In fact, we think you should bust out those bedazzled red pants and silver, sparkly shoes for your next video. We know you're not really a chonga, you're just 100-percent Miami.

Speaking of the 305, we're digging the Miami love on Ryan Seacrest's website. It's about time America's favorite "Latin music legend" and dat lil' chico Pitbull team up. Trust us, the "Wepa" remix is our official Gloria Estefan Labor Day Weekend theme song. Tremendo club banger.

Bueno Gloria, we hope your birthday was awesome. Hope Emilio bought you something nice -- unas prendas, a new car, whatever -- you deserve it.

Happy birthday.
