We had not heard from Belinda since the controversy around Pope Francis visit in Mexico. The pop star had been accussed of taking a spot that wasn't for her and angering the pontifex. She lashed out and denied the allegations, but she soon was in hot water for traveling (to see the Pope) in a helicopter for governmental use. Belinda had been mum since and focused on her new shoe line coming up, but major news was released yesterday and it turns out that the actress has joined the cast of "Baywatch."

The movie is an adaptation of the hit television series that starred David Hasselhoff. In this remake Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Zac Efron were cast as leads in the film set to open in 2017. The "Egoista" singer shared on Instagram that she had arrived in Savannah, GA, but didn't reveal what she was doing there. Turns out that the movie is being filmed there and she was there to start her stint. Belinda started off her career in Mexican telenovelas as a child actress in productions like "Amigos Por Siempre," "Complices Al Rescate" and "Aventuras En El Tiempo."

American audiences might remember Belinda from her role in the Disney Channel movie "The Cheetah Girls 2" opposite Raven Symone. The "Boba Niña Nice" hitmaker will now star in the big screen and probably wear a red bathing suit. Belinda keeps fit and has a great figure as we've been able to observed from photos she shares on social media. Take a look at some of her pics here and tell us what you think!
