The Friday Five: Adventures in Europe

It’s totally possible to have an adventure through Europe without even leaving your couch.  Here are some of our favorite movies that will take you to Rome, Paris & beyond.

1. The Lizzie McGuire Movie
Ah, Rome.  The Eternal City.  The land where they invented spaghetti. Whatever you want to call it, this movie is like taking a tour through the city.  And no trip to Rome is complete without running into an Italian pop star who wants you to pose as his singing parter who’s like totally your twin and perform at the IMVAs so you don’t loose your record deal, right?

2. Monte Carlo
Sure, it’s basically the same plot as The Lizzie McGuire Movie.  But this one takes place in Paris, and of course Monte Carlo.  And stars Selena Gomez, Katie Cassidy, Leighton Meester, and some really well cast male leads.  Beau-jo-lais, y’all.

3. The Cheetah Girls 2
Sometimes you gotta strut down those streets and let Barcelona know the Cheetahs have arrived.  The Cheetah Girls travel to Spain to compete in a talent show, almost get disqualified, meet some cute boys, and end up having a Cheetah-licious summer!

4. Chasing Liberty
Mandy Moore goes everywhere from Prague to Venice and back with Matthew Goode.  Sure she may be on the run from her secret service body guards, but a romantic gondola ride never hurt anybody!

5. What A Girl Wants
Amanda Bynes goes to London to find her father, Colin Firth and meets a cute British boy, who also happens to be a musician.  Believe it or not, no Christina Aguilera songs are in this movie, despite the title.  (Didn’t you just read the title to the tune of “What A Girl Wants?”  Us too.)

The Friday Five: Birthday Songs for Fangirls

In honor of one of our birthday’s today, check out our favorite non-traditional birthday songs.  Did you have any idea NKOTB and *NSYNC had original birthday songs?!  Well now you do.  Enjoy!

1.  “Birthday” by Selena Gomez
We find ourselves singing this song basically every day of the year, and are obsessed with Selena’s old school chair dance choreography to this song.  “Tell ’em that it’s my birthday when I party like that!”

2.  “Happy Birthday to You” by New Kids on the Block
The falsetto in this is just beautiful.  NKOTB is the gift that keeps on giving.

3.  “Birthday” by Katy Perry
Katy just released the official video for “Birthday” last night (great timing!).  She crashed a few birthday parties in disguise, with hilarious and adorable results.

4. “Not Your Birthday” by Allstar Weekend
You can always party like it’s not your birthday.

5.  “Happy Birthday” by *NSYNC
Again, who knew that *NSYNC had a birthday song?!

Bonus:  “Happy Birthday” performed a capella by *NSYNC.  Because who could ask for a better present?

Check out all of our Friday Fives!

“Faking It” Starring Gregg Sulkin Premieres Tonight on MTV!

We were sad when we found out Gregg Sulkin wouldn’t be returning to “Pretty Little Liars,” but at least it was because he was busy filming a new series, “Faking It.”  The show premieres tonight on MTV!

We’ve been fans of Gregg since his appearance in the iconic “Pass the Plate” series on Disney Channel.  “Nothing warms your tum like soup made by your mum!”  And of course his role as Selena Gomez’s werewolf/boyfriend on “Wizards of Waverly Place.”

If you’re in NYC, Gregg Sulkin will be doing a meet & greet at Planet Hollywood in Times Square today at 5pm!  Check Gregg’s Twitter for more updates.  We’d love to go and ask if he has any spinach soup, but we’ll be seeing Jackson Guthy and 5SOS a couple of blocks away!

Check out the trailer for “Faking It” below & be sure to watch on MTV tonight at 10:30pm!

Throwback Thursday: Justin Bieber

We know we promised ourselves that we would never write about The Biebs on here, but today might be the only exception.

In light of Justin’s DUI (among other things) arrest this morning, we thought it’d be fun to do a little Throwback Thursday on our favorite moments during Justin Bieber’s career.

Who would have thought this adorable shaggy haired little friend of Usher’s would have gotten into so much trouble in the past year?

Hopefully Justin will be saying this arrest is a “One Time” thing!

While we know that Justin has done a whole lot of good for his fans and others around the world, his recent antics have everyone in America chanting “Send him back to Canada!!” Justin’s team should probably get a tighter grip on the reigns of what’s left of Justin’s singing career.

Who can forget the iconic “Call Me Maybe” cover video that Carlos PenaVega (of Big Time Rush) put together with Justin, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale, the rest of Big Time Rush, and all their friends?!   This is still our favorite video for Carly Rae Jepsen’s song.

Bieber’s Christmas CD always makes our cut of “Which songs do we put on repeat for a month instead of listening to the radio” but how can we forget Ellen Degeneres telling him to pull his pants up during the “Mistletoe” video?

Justin’s “Believe” album was by far his best album and it’s still one of our favorites. “Boyfriend” is easily our favorite song off that album and that won’t change any time soon! We still don’t understand why the video starts one way and then switches just as the first chorus kicks in.  (And we’ll just ignore the fact that the video is basically a rip-off of *NSYNC’s “Girlfriend”)

Once Justin started getting his tattoos, things kind of started to spin out of control – slowly at first and then all at once.  Add in the loss of his first love, the beautiful and classy Selena Gomez, and Justin fell into the lure of everything bad Hollywood has to offer to a young star.

In case you were at work all day and somehow missed it, here is Justin’s mug shot that was posted by the Miami Beach PD Twitter account. Arrest reports can also be found for both Justin and his friend on the Miami Beach Police Department’s Twitter. Still not sure why he looks more cheery in his mugs than in meet and greet photos lately.

Justin is now out of jail on bond, but we hope that he cleans up his act!

Top 10 Moments of 2013 – Part 1

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.

10.  78Violet
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.

Stay tuned for Part 2!
