One of our favorite Thanksgiving traditions is the release of People’s Sexiest Man Alive issue. It’s the perfect reading material for your car/plane/train/bus ride home. We can’t help but feel like this year’s list is a little bit lacking. Here’s who we would include if we could takeover People for a day. (sidenote: if you haven’t seen the episode of “Don’t Trust The B” where James Van Der Beek receives the sexiest man honor, do yourself a favor and watch it now).
1. Sam Hunt
This up and coming country singer was recruited for the NFL but decided music was his true calling. And thank god because Sam Hunt’s deep voice and his thick Georgia drawl are part of his charm. He’s a talented singer and songwriter, with a unique sound incorporated his wide range of influences. Oh, and his rapping skills are on point too. Grab a copy of Sam Hunt’s debut album “Montevallo” on iTunes or Amazon now so you can sing along on the “Lipstick Grafitti” Tour.
2.Austin Mahone The one man boyband is basically all of your favorite boyband members in one. He’s currently in the studio working with Max Martin on his debut full length album. We’re hoping it will capture more of that 90s pop sound we heard on “The Secret” EP. Since Martin is responsible for “I Want It That Way,” “Baby One More Time, and “It’s Gonna Be Me,” among countless others, we’re sure it will. Make sure to pickup a copy of the new Teen Vogue for some beautiful wall-worthy photos.
Florida born singer/rapper Jake Miller definitely qualifies as “sexy” – have you seen his muscles? Any guy who can make a goofy face and still look good is definitely a keeper! Jake is also very good about interacting with his fans on Twitter. Be sure to pick up a copy of Jake Miller’s new EP “Lion Heart” on iTunes or Amazon now!
HEART EYES EMOJI all day because not only is Grigor one of the hottest young tennis stars (just look at that backhand!), he also is very sweet to his fans – he even stopped a match to help a ball girl who fainted (probably at the sight of him). Grigor also appreciates the finer things in art like art, custom designer travel bags, and puppies!! Make sure to follow him on Instagram.
5.Ryan Lewis Ryan Lewis is just a beautiful man. Not only is he a talented producer/DJ, he’s also been using his popularity for a good cause and launched the charity The 30/30 Project to help aid those impacted by HIV/AIDs. Lewis is definitely the lesser known member of the Grammy winning duo (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis if you’re totally clueless), as spoofed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. That definitely would not have been our reaction to spotting Ryan Lewis in the park.
Summer Fridays are in full swing, and we can’t wait for the weekend! Here’s what we’re listening to this week.
1. Austin Mahone – “Secret”
We’ve decided this is the official SecretFangirls.com theme song. We lost it when Austin performed this at Summer Jam last weekend, and are so glad someone caught it on video, because his choreography is ON POINT (as always). We don’t call him the one man boy band for nothing.
2. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – “And We Danced”
We saw Macklemore & Ryan Lewis at the Hammerstein Ballroom over two weeks ago. And we danced, and we laughed, and we cried, and had a really really really good time. And it was such a party that we are still finding random pieces of confetti everywhere.
3. Justin Timberlake – “Not a Bad Thing”
While we’ve always said this song would sound amazing as a 5-part harmony (ahem *NSYNC you can cover this on your reunion tour), it’s just as beautiful with JT.
4. Midnight Red – “Hell Yeah”
Okay, so we had this song on last week’s Friday Five. But we’ve seen Midnight Red twice this week, so this song has been permanently stuck in our heads (and we’re totally okay with it).
5. Victoria Justice – “Gold”
We know that Victoria is focusing on her acting projects now, but we miss her music! We especially love this single, “Gold,” and are hoping that we will still get a full album sometime soon!
We are usually pretty on top of show announcements here at SecretFangirls.com, but somehow this one passed us by! Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have teamed up with American Express and will have shows for card members in New York and Los Angeles this Spring! They will be having just a few shows in the US this year, so don’t miss your chance to see them!
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis American Express Concerts
May 21st: Hammerstein Ballroom – New York, NY – Buy Tickets
June 6th: Club Nokia – Los Angeles, CA – Buy Tickets
Their show at the Theater at Madison Square Garden last fall was one of our favorite moments of 2013. We’ve never seen such a high energy performance (or so much confetti!) and we’re looking forward to seeing them again!
It’s almost 2014, so you know what that means – time to recap our favorite moments of 2013! (We’re so original here). As we mentioned before, 2013 was an awesome year for music, especially if you’re a secret fangirl. Here are our favorite things that happened this year.
After what seemed like years of talk, 78Violet, aka Aly & AJ, announced an official reunion and a new single, “Hothouse.” We are loving their new sound! They are very interactive with their fans, and had some adorable sister moments on stage at their Grammercy Theater show, like mixing up their mic-pacs and swapping them back on stage. We also love Aly’s story about their song “53rd Floor” – she realized only after the song was finished she had gotten the floor number wrong. Oops!
9. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were everywhere in 2013, and we would put “Can’t Hold Us” and “Thrift Shop” on any Best of 2013 list. Their live show is just incredible with freestyle rapping, a full horn section, confetti blasters, and some serious crowd surfing. Not to mention one of the most energetic performers we’ve ever seen! Oh, and have you heard how Macklemore (aka Ben Haggerty) met his now fiance Tricia Davis? Take notes: She had heard one of his songs on the radio, and sent him a MySpace message offering to make him a picnic, or so the legend goes. She did, and they’ve been together ever since. Fangirling at its finest. We love it!
8. Jesse McCartney’s Comeback
We’ve been fans of J Mac since his days on “Summerland” and his first album. Okay, we admit we were fans of Dreamstreet too. (Remember them?) He’s been focusing on acting lately, so we were stoked when he announced he would be joining the Backstreet Boys on their 20th Anniversary Tour. Jesse let us know he’d been in the studio too, and released an EP, In Technicolor Part I, in December. Our favorite song is “Back Together”.
7. Austin Mahone!
We discovered Austin by actually clicking on an “Amazon MP3 suggests” selection, and boy are we glad we did. Talent, style, sweet dance moves? Austin is the complete package. We were counting down the days until his headlining MTV Artist to Watch Tour in the fall, which was sadly postponed, but now means we’re just counting the days until it now kicks off in March!
6. Selena Gomez Makes the Stars Dance
Selena returned to music this year with her album, “Stars Dance.” This also marked the first time she released music without her band, The Scene. Her music and performances are a throwback to early Britney (chair dances!!) and we are loving her pop-dance sound. Say what you want about her, but there is no denying the girl can dance and put on a good show.
