Jenna’s secret videos are found — Remember those secret videos the girls had of Jenna trying to seduce Toby? Well they were found and handed to — of all people — Hanna’s mom. Luckily Caleb came to the rescue and talked Hanna’s mom out of handing them to the police. Instead Hanna’s mom destroyed them. At least that’s one piece of blackmail the girls don’t have to worry about anymore.
Aria meets Maggie — After Ezra says he wants to know if his ex mother of his child Maggie is doing all right, Aria goes undercover as an undergrad student named Amy and visits Maggie. She finds out that Ezra indeed has a child! Yes a child. Excuse me while I sit here staring at the computer screen stunned, I can only imagine where this will now take us.
Ali and Paige have a history – Looks like all is really fair in love and war and by the looks of it Ali and Paige fought for the love of Emily. Just like any Ali clone Cece decided to stir some trouble in the girl’s lives by telling Spencer that Paige and Ali used to battle it out for Emily. This causes Spencer to believe that Paige could be “A.” This actually makes sense since both Maya and Ali dated Emily and were both murdered. Oh and did I mention that Spencer and Hanna found an earring in Paige’s bag that matches the earring in Ali’s grave? Wow people really do do crazy things when they’re in love.
Maya’s cousin is a freak — Okay so I’m so over liking the whole Nate and Emily duo. That dude is a freak with major anger problems! First, he basically stalks and torments Jenna and then he blows up on Emily once she admits the kiss between them was a mistake. He honestly needs to take an anger management class and chill! I’m beginning to think he might be A
Jenna’s final warning — No PLL episode would be complete without a very vague and creepy message from a cast member and this time Jenna showed up at Emily’s house and warned her to be careful who she spends time with. She could be talking about Nate or Paige. Either way, both characters just became extremely sketchy.
On this week’s episode of PLL’s “Stolen Kisses,” the girls work on trying to crack the password to Maya’s website and they find out a few things…
Here are five things I learned on last night’s episode:
1. Caleb is back — Caleb returns to Rosewood and his first encounter with Hanna is while she’s having a coffee meeting with Wren. Talk about awkward! But conveniently, he returns to Rosewood just when the girls need him to crack Maya’s password. Don’t you just love how Hollywood works sometimes? Caleb, being the pro that he is, cracks Maya’s password and opens her personal vlog. Surprise, surprise, Maya took a video right before she was killed that explains how she needs to face her fears, just as Garret’s police car lights come into the frame. Hopefully we’ll get to see more of that video in next week’s episode.
2. “A” tried to get rid of Mona — Just when the girls think they finally have a key to all their answers, “A” interferes and tries to shake them up. This week, Wren tells Hanna that the board at the insane asylum is trying to transfer Mona to a center in Saratoga. This is followed by a text from “A” that says now that Mona is out of the way Hanna is next. Lucky for us Hanna confronts the board and gives a touching speech arguing the right for Mona to stay in Rosewood. Just like every happy beginning, Mona is allowed to stay and Hanna kisses Wren… yes you heard me Hanna kisses Wren…. Killing me and all my Wren and Spencer dreams.
3. Emily has another flashback – Well she sort of does. After awkwardly avoiding each other, Emily finally confronts Paige to see what’s up. We later find out that the reason Paige has been avoiding Emily is because on the night that Ali’s grave was dug up Emily went to Paige’s house and kissed her and then left. Talk about playing a little ding dong ditch! This later results in Emily and Paige kissing for real and possibly finally becoming a couple. …Goodbye Nate…at least for now.
4. Ezra’s real last name is Fitzgerald — Read more…
Looks like Justin Bieber was feeling the love a bit too much last weekend in Toronto.
After winning an MMVA for UR Fave Artist, the teenage singer pump-faked his award to the crowd as he left and a fan quickly latched onto his trophy.
Bieber, who didn’t pull back the award, thought she was an official with MuchMusic. But once he realized his mistake, he let organizers of the show know. Thankfully enough, the fan was tracked down and returned the trophy.
But according to Bieber’s rep, Justin feels bad for getting the girl’s hopes up and wants to track her down so he can get her a replica of the award.
So far, the girl has not come forward.
If that’s the case, that would be super awesome for the fan! If I were her, I would instantly come forward.
Good on Justin to think about the fans.

Clare is a ticking time-bomb as her family situation grows more and more unbearable. She’s livingwith her ex-boyfriend, and that must be beyond uncomfortable — especially when you’re not over him.
But honestly, I think home-girl needs to relax. While her situation is pretty awful, I don’t think the hostility or all those public outbursts are needed, and it prevents me from having real sympathy for her. Can you imagine going to school with someone like that? Maybe try channeling all that aggression into focusing on school and moving on from Jake instead of calling out your friends in homeroom, Clare.
Anyway, here are five things I learned on this week’s episode of Degrassi, “Not Ready to Make Nice Pt 1.”
1) Jenna “always-gets-her-man” Middleton set her sights on another Degrassi hottie. And another one of Clare’s ex-boyfriends. Once a backstabbing boy stealer…? The situation gets even more “awkweird” when Jenna is invited to her step-brother/ex Jake’s birthday party.
2) Who knew that underneath those lab goggles, Connor can play a mean football game? But his Asperger’s is getting in the way of him adjusting to this particular peer group. Hopefully his mad skills begin to speak for themselves. Also, is it just me or did Connor get way buff? Summer does a body good.
3) Fiona has a crush on Imogen… and she plans to make her feelings less obvious by hooking her up with former crush Eli, who is also still into Imogen. Doesn’t Fiona realize that she gets the seriously short end of the stick in this scenario? Nothing’s worse than having your two best friends date, especially when you have a thing for one of them.
4) According to Connor, 37 percent of relationships that begin online are successful. And it looks like he’s going to use that knowledge to play a mean prank on Mo who has been picking on him. This guy designs apps; I’m a little worried if he’s starting to use his powers for evil.
5) Clare has nowhere to go between living with her ex and her ex’s dad and moving in with her dad and his marriage-wrecker girlfriend. So she moves in with a woman who sells vampire romance fiction and runs a pseudo-shelter for homeless teens. An admirable cause, but the fact that Clare has to ditch her cellphone to stay sounds more like a cult to me.
With the MuchMusic Video Awards only less than 24 hours away, most reporters working the red carpet would be prepping questions for Selena Gomez and Lady Gaga. Well not Jordan from andPOP – he spent the day condom shopping as his preparation. But why does he need so many condoms for the event (besides the obvious). Check back Monday morning to see our MMVA coverage, and you will see why we are stocking up!
Kanye West’s new music video for “All of The Lights” has received an Epilepsy warning from a British organization called Epilepsy Action, according to MTV News.
The charity group provides support for people with epilepsy, and says that the video “should not be broadcast on U.K. television.”
“However, the Kanye West video is still available online, most notably on YouTube where it has had several million hits, and no such regulations exist for online broadcasting,” said the organization in a statement.
As a result of this outburst, the video, which features a barely-dressed Rihanna, has been pulled from many stations including MuchMusic. “We are pleased to see that YouTube and Kanye West’s representatives have listened to our concerns and are warning people that the video is a risk to some people,” Epilepsy Action campaigns manager Aimee Gee said to MTV.
It’s true that the online world of broadcasting has drastically different rules than the television world – meaning there really are no rules for online broadcasting. It’ll be much harder for the music video to be pulled from YouTube than it was to get pulled from television, simply due to the fact that the online world is a free, post-whatever-you-want world. Warning ads have been placed before the video, though.
Now, I don’t know if I just feel bad for Kanye, but the dude just can’t catch a break. Ever since the Taylor Swift fiasco at the Grammys, his career has never been able to fully recover. Although the song is currently at number 14 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop chart, his video now risks the chance of getting pulled from all media outlets. Poor guy!
I don’t know if pulling the video from everywhere is the solution, though. The obvious answer to this problem seem simple to me; if you have epilepsy, don’t watch a music video called “All of The Lights“. I mean, lights is your first clue that you probably won’t enjoy it. Secondly, I realize that maybe someone could stumble upon the video and have an epileptic seisure, but how about changing the channel if you see bright lights? How are these flashing lights different from Ke$ha or Britney Spears’ videos?
I’ve personally seen the video and I really enjoyed it. I thought it was different, unique, and a fresh change from the usual videos played today. It seems like all the good videos are getting censored nowadays. Just a couple weeks ago, Rihanna’s “S&M” video got pulled in some countries as it was too ‘risky’. I mean, we live in a modern century, a little risky or bright lights won’t hurt anyone. Well, maybe, but you know what I mean.
Does that mean all strobe light parties are at risk of extinction too? Will the world become an abyss of black and white? Will all creativity be banished from our lives, and we’ll be forced to watch Glee episodes on repeat for the rest of eternity?
I know I’m being rash, but I mean, I feel bad for the guy. The video is good. Let Kanye have his moment.
See the video below and be careful!
So it seems like this Twitter thing maybe around for a bit, and we are always looking to increase our followers. Jordan took advantage of the opportunity to meet Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars to see if he can increase his following. And of course we talked about the mad success of the show, and why Lucy, Troian, and Ashley were cast for the show. You can watch Pretty Little Liars on Much in Canada, and ABC Family in the U.S.
Sad news for music fans in Canada: MuchMusic wants to cut down the amount of music videos it plays even more, reports CHARTattack.
Last week CTV Limited, the company which owns MuchMusic, applied to change their current license with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). The proposed changes would affect the amount of music videos played on the station as well as remove French language programming and increase music-related feature films.
MuchMusic has gradually been playing less and less music videos and moving more towards other kinds of programming. Now they want to cut the number of music videos they play in half.
The proposed new licence would change the number of shows which consist of music related programming and music videos from filling 50 per cent of each broadcasting week to just 25 per cent.
CTV’s reasoning? The application to the CRTC reads, “Music videos no longer distinguish the service as they are readily available through other sources.” This isn’t great news for music enthusiasts if the application for the new license is accepted.
What’s your take? Do you still watch MuchMusic or do you check out “other sources” for music videos?
The MuchMusic Video Awards (MMVA’s), set to take place in June, will see Queen and John Streets transformed with celebrities, screaming fans, live performances, and, of course, awards.
This time around, Toronto’s own rap prince Drake is in the nomination lead with a total of seven, reports Yahoo! News. The awards show comes right after Drake releases his highly anticipated debut album, Thank Me Later.
Vancouver band Hedley follows behind with six nominations, and GTA pop sensation Justin Bieber comes in with four nominations. Other notable nominees include Katy Perry, Adam Lambert, and Miley Cyrus, who will also be hosting the awards show along with MuchMusic VJs.
Cyrus, Bieber and Perry are also scheduled to perform at the show.
There were three girls around earlier in the show, but they left because the bar owner was drunk and hitting on them. There was also a drunk named Kurt, but he got thrown out minutes into the show.
“[Kurt] was the drunkest human being I have ever seen,” Luther Mallory, lead singer of Crush Luther, told andPOP. “He was on the stage with us, just swaying back and forth, ready to pass out.”
After the show, at around 2 a.m., Crush Luther was hanging out at the bar and having a couple of drinks. Then all of a sudden, a giant crowd of people wandered into the bar and demanded some live music.
Crush Luther answered the call.
The giant crowd of people had been at the local strip club, where a new stripper had come to town for the week to dance.
The people of Golden called this night, “fresh meat night,” which Mallory said is horrible and horrifying as anything.
The 17 year old sensation has sold more than 15 Million albums worldwide with her fame continuing to grow.
In December 2007, Cyrus’ first trip to MuchMusic sent fans at home and in the MUCHONDEMAND audience into decibel leveling chaos, leaving them wanting more of the singer/songwriter/actress.
“I’m so excited to co-host the MuchMusic Video Awards,” said Miley Cyrus.”I can’t wait to get back to Canada and perform for all of my fans. It’s going to be an awesome night!”
The 2010 MUCHMUSIC VIDEO AWARDS airs Sunday, June 20 at 9 p.m. ET live from MuchMusic HQ in Toronto.
Fast-paced, fun and silly, The Paul Telner Project is co-hosted by popular musician Karl Wolf and comedian Paul Telner.
Paul thrives on real-life interaction, something under-tapped in the online video arena. In addition to his pranks, Paul stars in character-based segments featuring real people interacting with Paul as character, believing the character to be real.
The edgy and fun look of the show, which helps pace the comedy and move it along, belongs to director Jason ER Fisher (jasonerf.com). While most shows try to be cool by using old techniques, Fisher takes Telner’s goofy, nerdy and likeable style and personality and translates it to screen.
“Lock it up. Rolling sound. Sound speed!”
If you’re an actor, then you know it’s a verbal-cue that tells everyone on-set to shut-up and listen because a scene is being recorded. And it’s also an acting reference that a few actors from Degrassi: The Next Generation have taken to heart in their new venture into the music scene as one of Toronto’s up-and-coming alternative bands, dubbed SoundSpeed.
But with such a unique sound, combination, and debut EP, it can be said that the six-man band has the same message in mind as that of the chant back on the film set. Before you judge, question, or make an opinion, first…just shut-up, and listen.
“I think we represent something different,” drummer Shane Kippel, 23, tells andPOP. “We have such a refreshing sound, yet you can’t really figure it out. It’s just a blend of all of our input and musical interests.”
Popular American television network MTV has finally admitted what most people have alluded to for quite some time now: that it is no longer “music television,” reports CHARTattack.com.
The network, which launched in 1981 with the specific purpose to air music videos, launched a new logo yesterday (Monday, Feb. 8), which no longer houses the “music television” tagline that has been part of their original logo for nearly 30 years.
The MC, born Kevin Brereton, told MuchMusic that after 10 years of spending time in the recording studio he wants to change things up and “stay immediate” instead.
“I’m not going to make any more albums,” K-OS said on Thursday (Jan. 28) in a press release. “I think we’re just going to drop singles for a couple years and see what happens. If those singles are successful, maybe put out a compilation of the ones that people like and call it an album, like what Elvis and The Beatles did.”
The rapper added that Lil Wayne and Drake, who put more time and effort into releasing mixtapes and singles rather than proper full-length albums, are proof that “you don’t have to make an album” if you’re a musician these days.
Eight seasons running. A cult in Canadian pop culture. Winners of the Gemini, Teen Choice and Directors Guild of Canada Awards.
And now Degrassi: The Next Generation finally boasts its first red-carpet TV movie.
But known as a “show of the people”, the season 8 finale Paradise City: Degrassi Goes Hollywood premiere last Wednesday night at Toronto’s Bloor Cinema, allowed tons of lucky special-bracelet-wearing fans bask in Degrassi glory. A free-for-all for snagging autographs and pictures from their favorite cast members, and what’s more- the opportunity to enjoy the movie side-by-side with them too.
And the word got out not only to lucky fans. Among a packed-to-the-brim theatre audience was Camp Rock 2 stars Jordan Francis and Matthew “Mdot” Finley, So You Think You Can Dance Canada winner Nico Archambault, MuchMusic VJ Devon Soltendieck and MTV Live‘s Nicole Holness.
To celebrate the life of the pop icon, MuchMusic is hosting a live broadcast from MuchMusic HQ allowing Canadian fans to pay tribute to the self proclaimed “King of Pop”. The live broadcast will continue to at least 11 p.m. EST, and guests include Danny Fernandes, Stereos, Traci Melchor, Jully Black, Protest The Hero, K-OS and Natalie Thomas of Us Weekly.
Can anybody decipher what Aaron Carter is saying? He seems like a really nice guy but we are lost. Please translate for us in the comment box.
