Carlos Pena Releases First Solo Single

Carlos released his first solo single…but sadly, it’s not “Carlos ALONE”.
The song is called “Electrico” and is already in the Top 10 on the iTunes Latin charts! Check out the single artwork above from Carlos’ Instagram.  We think it’s great that our little Carlitos is branching into the Latin charts!! He has such a knack for performing and hopefully this is a taste of the future ahead of him.

Get the song on iTunes and check out the lyric translation by @BTRTourUpdater  HERE!

We hope “Logalicious” is the next solo piece to come from Big Time Rush…but most of all we want a full album and a full tour of James’s “Break Out Dreams” project.

Abercrombie & Fitch “The Making Of A Star” Campaign Featuring Colton Haynes, Steven R McQueen, and Diego Boneta

Abercrombie & Fitch premiered a new group of familiar faces for their “Making Of A Star” Campaign today.
This round features Debby Ryan (Jessie – Disney Channel) , Steven R. McQueen (“MinuteMen” – Disney Channel, and The Vampire Diaries – The CW) , Colton Haynes (Teen Wolf – MTV, and Arrow – The CW) , Diego Boneta (Pretty Little Liars – ABC Family, and Rock Of Ages),  and Kylie Bunbury (Twisted – ABC Family).

These campaigns are so cool because they catch these rising stars just before they hit it big time! Although, if you watch enough “tween” TV shows and movies, then you’ll already recognize a bunch of these faces.

Colton Haynes played Jackson on Season 1 of Teen Wolf (where we fell in love with him until he turned into the ka- we won’t spoil it for you) and he was also featured in Victoria Justice’s music video for her single “Gold”!

Colton is also really good at Twitter and Instagram. He loves to post selfies – and with a face like that…we won’t stop him any time soon!  We would also like to include this gem from Colton’s recent Instagram feed. You’re welcome.

Next, if you can remember all of Spencer’s boy toys on Pretty Little Liars, you get an A+ in everything (we couldn’t remember Hanna’s first boyfriend’s name for the longest time). Go ahead and sift through all the hotties (we’ll wait) but we know you will have fond memories of Alex Santiago – the ball boy at the Rosewood Country Club played by Diego Boneta!

He also stole our hearts in the terribly written “Rock Of Ages” movie! We didn’t care how cheesy the dialogue was…all we wanted was more of Diego singing our favorite classic rock hits! Click here to listen to Diego singing “I Wanna Rock” originally by Twisted Sister.

Follow Diego Boneta on Twitter and Instagram, if only for the hotness factor he’ll add to your timeline.

If the name Steven R McQueen sounds familiar to you, it’s because he’s the grandson of Steve McQueen – the definition of “cool guy” from the 1960s classics like “The Great Escape” and the TV show “Wanted: Dead Or Alive”. Ask your parents or grandparents if you’re still lost.  Anyway, Steven R McQueen is the ultra hot grandson and really, we didn’t expect anything less from that family. You might recognize Steven R McQueen from the 2008 Disney Channel Original Movie “Minutemen” where he starred with Luke Benward, Jason Dolley, Chelsea Kane, and Nicholas Braun.  Aww!! He was so little back then!!

These days though, you might recognize Steven R McQueen as  the super hot Jeremy on The Vampire Diaries on The CW!  (We tried watching that show and got bored…go figure!)

WAIT AND HE SINGS!!!  We just discovered that Steven sings and plays guitar. He just got ten times hotter!!

Look at how hot he is!! Bruce Weber did a fantastic job on the photos for this campaign.

Head over to Abercrombie’s website for more on each new fresh face in the campaign, for more pretty photos and videos of really cute boys.  And puppies! Did we mention there’s lots of puppies?
 
 
 

Tim Tebow Premieres T-Mobile Superbowl Commercial

Not to be un-American or anything, but we fully admit we have absolutely zero interest in football.  Superbowl weekend?  Nope.  For us it is Davis Cup Weekend (Go USA!) and new Zac Efron movie weekend.   We also had absolutely zero interest in Tim Tebow, that is until one of us saw him getting breakfast one morning at Sarabeth’s and realized just how good looking he is. (trust us, TV/photos don’t do him justice.)
So we were thrilled that our one and only football crush co-hosted Good Morning America today, rocking a plaid suit!  (AND Austin Mahone performed!!!  Morning TV doesn’t get much better)

He also premiered his new commercial with T-Mobile, in which Tim tells us all the things he’s been able to do without a contract, like “save puppies.”
The commercial will air during that Super Bowl thing on Sunday, or if like us, you already have tickets to see “That Awkward Moment,” you can watch them below via T-Mobile’s youtube.

Throwback Thursday: Macy Misa on JONAS – The ULTIMATE Fangirl

If you watched JONAS on Disney (religiously like we did) then you’ll recognize Macy Misa on Ravenswood and have fond memories of her not so secret fangirling. Particularly in the episode “Love Sick”.  Macy goes on a date to a basketball game with a boy (Randolph) only to make him wear a curly wig (that she insisted was a hat), even making him dress like her celebrity crush/classmate – Nick Lucas (Nick Jonas).

Season 1 of JONAS was absolute GOLD and it’s a shame that they changed the writing and setting for season 2. The humor of season 1 captured the brothers so perfectly and was really a slight exaggeration of them in real life.

Nick says “I don’t come to these games is because I never meet anyone like myself”  and then this happens.

Watch the episode online and remind yourself….if Macy Misa can eventually date her celebrity crush, so can you!

Macy Misa is the definition of “fangirl” and the textbook example of pretty much how NOT to act around your favorite celebs. Somehow her character went on to date Nick which only gives us that much more hope!

Disney Orders A Full Season of “Girl Meets World”

While we are still (impatiently) waiting for an official air date for “Girl Meets World,” the sequel to the ultimate 90s coming of age show “Boy Meets World,” star Danielle Fishel revealed the show has been officially picked up by Disney Channel for a full season.

So far, the only release date we’ve been given from Disney is “sometime in 2014.”  We hope this good news means that the premiere isn’t too far away!  Ever since ABC Family stopped airing old “Boy Meets World” episodes on weekday mornings, we have been missing Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence in our lives. We’re sad they didn’t actually name their children “Chewbacca” and “Plankton” like Cory promised!

The show promises to have guest appearances from former cast members, which better include Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong) and Eric Matthews (Will Friedle).   But fear not, according to IMDB, Mr. Feeny will be in at least 1 episode.

We hope the spinoff series will be just as iconic as the original!

Hart of Dixie Returns Tonight!

“The OC” is the greatest show of all time, so we were thrilled when we found out that Josh Schwartz & Rachel Bilson were teaming up again on “Hart of Dixie!”

If you haven’t been watching, you’re seriously missing out.   Everyone that lives in the charming town of Bluebell, Alabama, where the show takes place, is entertaining to watch and full of Southern charm.  It almost makes us want to pack up and move down south (even moreso in freezing January).  The show’s small town setting leads to lots of romantic rhombuses, secret affairs, and culture shock for native New Yorker Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson).  Bilson is just as hilarious and just plain awesome as Zoe as she was as Summer Roberts.

Of course, both she and co-star Jaime King (Lemon Vreeland) have enviable wardrobes: Zoe  the too-edgy-for-Bluebell-New Yorker (“Is it okay for a doctor to wear shorts?”) and true Southern Belle Lemon make us want to be both.

Check out the promo for tonight’s episode below, and watch tonight at 8pm on the CW!   Catchup on Netflix, The CW, or Hulu!

Pretty Little Liars Returns Tuesday, January 7th!

Let’s face it:  January is a rough time.   The holidays are over, it’s cold, no vacation in the foreseeable future, and all we want to do is just hibernate until spring.   So, we like to focus on the good things that do happen in January, like the return of Pretty Little Liars!

(If you aren’t caught up with the show yet, we’d suggest to stop reading.  You’ve been warned)

The show left off with a major cliffhanger — Allison, whom we’d believed to have been dead since the show started, was alive!   We think so, at least.  This show has so many twists and turns, we don’t know what to believe anymore.

Here are some questions we’d like answered this season:
1.  Is Mr. Fitz (our favorite character) really evil?  Or is he just faking being a member of the A-team, like Toby?   Although we’ve been saying all along Mr Fitz is so perfect something HAS to be wrong with him, so it wouldn’t surprise us if he has been A all this time…
2.  What happened to Gregg Sulkin, Mr. Fitz’s little brother?  (He will always be Gregg to us thanks to this commercial from Disney)  Nothing warms your tum like soup made by your mum!
3.  Can we have more shirtless scenes with Jason?
4. Where is Toby?  I don’t think we see enough of him, and we would like more.  Has he been modeling?
5. What ever happened to that cute guy, Andrew, from the decathlon team that Spencer was playing “strip study” with?
6.  How do the girls have time to do their hair every morning? When do they do their homework? How do they have so much time before school? We could barely get dressed and out the door before the first bell!
7.  Is Caleb going to come back from Ravenswood?  We tried watching that show and gave up after 1.5 episodes, so we have no idea.  We hope Macy Misa is okay.
8. WHY DOESN’T ANYONE JUST TELL THEIR PARENTS / A RESPONSIBLE ADULT / MR FITZ / ANOTHER HOT MALE ADULT FIGURE / ETC THAT THEY ARE BEING STALKED BY A?!?

I guess then we wouldn’t have a show, so we’ll just play along!

While we look up our favorite photos of Mr Fitz, check out the trailer for the new season below.

Watch the premiere on Tuesday, January 7th at 8pm, and catch up during the all day marathon on ABC Family!

The Wahlburgers Coming to A&E in January

We generally stay away from reality shows, but if they involve a current or former boyband member, you can bet we will be tuning in (shoutout to “House of Carters!”).  So naturally we were thrilled to see that one of our favorite members of New Kids on the Block, Donnie Wahlberg, is part of a new show on A&E this January.   The show is called “The Wahlburgers,” and it revolves around the Walberg clan’s hamburger restaurant they opened in (where else) Boston, MA.

The show stars Donnie, brother Mark (how nice of Marky Mark to take time from his busy pants dropping schedule to film this show!), and brother Paul, the restaurant’s executive chef.  According to the press release, the show will focus on the struggles of running a restaurant with the family name.  We hope co-owner Donnie will be making lots of appearances, as he’s become one of our all time favorite boybanders (if you’ve ever been to a NKOTB show, you will know why).  We’re hoping Aaron Carter, who was apparently jumped in Boston earlier this year for “being on NKOTB turf,” will stop by for a bite to eat.

The show premieres on A&E January 22nd at 10:30pm.  Check out the promo below!

Reign And Why You Should Be Watching It

Starring Adelaide Kane as Mary, Toby Regbo as Prince Francis – Mary’s fiancé, and Torrance Coombs as Bash – Francis’ bastard brother, “Reign” keeps you on your toes and keeps you guessing each week. While the music and costumes may not be 100% historically accurate, that is exactly why we LOVE The CW’s newest show, “Reign”.

The show follows Mary Queen of Scots through her teenage years and her pending alliance/engagement with France.

Let’s recap what’s happened so far:
Mary leaves Scotland and goes to France to confirm the Scottish alliance with France and to seal her engagement to Prince Francis. The Queen of France is crazy and hates Mary. Bash, Francis’s bastard brother, kills a dude who wanted to –  y’know what? Long story short: everyone is basically out to get rid of Mary. It’s reeeaally crazy with murders and mistresses, cute boys, beheadings, poisonings, ghosts, cute boys, good music, historically inaccurate costumes, and did we mention CUTE BOYS?!

If you think dating is hard now, it’s nothing compared to the drama of the 16th Century. You weren’t just marrying someone and their family…you married the entire country!

“Reign” returns to TV Thursday, January 23 at 9/8C
