Big Time Rush fans hold on to your hats because their new album 24/Seven is dropping on June 11! Fans can pre-order the album now and they’ll have the choice between the regular 10 track album or the deluxe version which offers 5 bonus songs. With most of the songs on the album written by the guys themselves, this album will surely show the growth and more personal side of Kendall, James, Carlos and Logan.
The album release also comes at the heels of the announcement of their “Summer Break” tour which kicks off on June 21. Vitoria Justice is scheduled to open for Big Time Rush.
And if that’s not enough BTR news for you, the fourth season of their hit Nickelodeon show Big Time Rush premieres Thursday, May 2nd. Yay!
Jamie Lynn Spears
Jamie is best known as her lead role in Zoey 101 and younger sister of the legendary Miss Britney Spears. In 2007, she announced that she was pregnant with her daughter Maddie. That was probably the last time you heard from her. Spears left the limelight for a few years and moved to a quiet town in Mississippi, with her then boyfriend and first love, Casey Aldridge. Last month, Jamie took the stage at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville, TN where she dedicated a song to her older sister Britney, “I Look Up To You.” Do you want to see an album from her soon?
Dylan and Cole Sprouse
You can’t forget these adorable twins from Disney’s The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. They actually turn 20-years-old tomorrow (almost fully legal) and are both currently attending NYU. Seems like this group of guys (below) fan-boy hardcore while waiting for Dylan Sprouse to leave class. Not only was Dylan nice enough to chat and take a group photo with the fellas, he’s totally laid back and not so “Disney” anymore. I love how the guys break out into theme song as he continues to walk away.

Taylor Swift will accept an award from Michelle Obama for her charitable work (yea, no biggie) and I can’t help thinking about how the pop princess will accept the award.
Swift always seems genuinely shocked whenever she wins. Yes Taylor, we love you, accept it! I’m thinking her expression will be something like below:
But seriously, the 22-year-old will be honoured by the President’s wife at the Kids’ Choice Awards for her outstanding charitable work, including raising $750,000 for tornado victims with her Speak Now fundraiser. [Hold applause, I'm not done yet.] She also works with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the St. Jude Medical Center, Habitat for Humanity and the Red Cross.
The Big Help Award is given to those who take actions to better the world and inspire kids to do the same. Previous winners include Justin Timberlake and Leonardo DiCaprio. You can get involved by going to the Big Help website.
The guys of One Direction answered fan questions like fast-talking auctioneers during this Q&A with Saturday Night Online, and it’s very revealing. For one thing, a memorable fan experience was when a girl showed her breasts (and they liked it) and they’re obsessed with Bruno Mars.Another interesting point? They denied rumours that they have an upcoming show with Nickelodeon [cue sighs].
The best part is when they all answer a question with the same answer, at the same time. Freaky.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, The Hunger Games’ Jennifer Lawrence makes our “hit list” for a cute photo of her with her beau. Lindsay Lohan sadly fell short, as her alleged hit and run is anything but a hit.
Sofia Vergara lands SNL hosting gig
Modern Family‘s male fans are probably too distracted by her hot bod to try to decipher her accent (“chesh?!”). I, on the other hand, love her for her comedic chops as the naggy, but strong, Gloria. Expect skits that lovingly poke fun at her accent and breasts.
The Hunger Games’ Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult caught kissing
In my head, I saw Skins star Kaya Scodelario as the perfect Katniss. Eventually though, Jennifer Lawrence’s charm won my heart, not to mention the heart of Scodelario’s former co-star, Nicholas Hoult. While they’ve kept their relationship under wraps, I wouldn’t mind seeing Hoult escort Lawrence down the Hunger Games red carpet. She looks hot in gold, TAKE SOME PRIDE IN THAT.
One Direction will get their own show on Nickelodeon
To my sister and every One Directioner’s delight, Nickelodeon confirmed via Twitter that the members of this boy band are getting their own show. They may be cute and British, but their pop tunes make me want to punch something cute. I’m sure they’ll be great for some wholesome family entertainment but just remember ladies, keep your stalking friendly.
Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover postpones rap tour
Glover fractured his foot while performing in Florida and moved his Camp tour back. If anyone can’t make the Toronto show, please forward your tickets to me. I’d be happy to take them off your hands.
The younger Franco did a strange photoshoot for Complex Magazine
Dave Franco, aka younger brother of James, thought an 80s-themed photoshoot for the hip hop magazine was a good idea. I can’t decide what’s stranger: this or the Funny or Die video where he has sex with himself. I think you should fire your agent because the Internet never forgets.
Lindsay Lohan accused of hit and run
While on LiLo patrol, TMZ reports the star hit a hookah lounge manager with her Porsche early Wednesday morning in L.A. While the manager wasn’t hurt, he apparently plans to press charges. At least give her a chance at a comeback! She didn’t go back to red hair for nothing!
Four of the hottest stars will honour ordinary teens doing extraordinary things at the third annual TeenNick HALO Awards.
Taylor Swift will join Lady Gaga, actress Jessica Biel and soccer phenomenon David Beckham as they award four young individuals who have made a difference in their communities.
HALO, which stands for “Helping and Leading Others”, will recognize teens like James O’Dwyer, who started the Magnolia Disaster Relief, a program offering aid to rural areas affected by tornadoes. Taylor is the celeb scheduled to present O’Dwyer with his award.
MTV News says Nick Cannon will host the special ceremony in Los Angeles. It will be broadcasted on November 6 on Nick at Nite.
For a lot of people, YouTube is just the website that hosts all your favourite cats-wearing-mustaches videos that keep you occupied during a slow day at work. For Lucas Cruikshank, it was the springboard into his untapped comedy and creativity that ultimately led to a pretty hefty contract with Nickelodeon.
“It’s definitely been crazy,” Lucas said in an interview with andPOP. “But I’m just so excited.”
Known better by his Internet alias, an exuberant six-year-old named “Fred,” Cruikshank is one of the most popular personalities on the video site. With his videos nearing 100 million subscribers, he’s just released and album and feature film with more to come on the horizon. Lucas’s character work, after appealing to masses of young people on the popular vlogging site, caught the attention of Nickelodeon back in 2009. The media mogul quickly inked a deal with Cruikshank promising a multi-platform infiltration including an album, movie and television show.
JUJU MAKE ME GO CRAZY.
Alright lets get one thing out of the way, I enjoy video games regardless of the age and gender they are created for. If it is a good game then I will classify it as a good game. In my books there is no such thing as a ” I guess for a kids game this is alright.” You wanna know why? Because even simple kids games have to abide by some sort of standard. And don’t get me started on those pre-preschooler games… at that young age you shouldn’t be playing games in the first place. I played Super Mario Land for the Gameboy when I was 6, it was challenging, immersible, and got me to love games ever since.
Now that’s not to say Tak and the guardians of gross is a game designed for kids, I honestly wish that were not the case but tons of things within the game lead me to believe the only person to get some mild joy out of the title would be someone around that age.
The game is the third story iteration in Tak series and after a long hiatus now returns to the Wii. Developed by Blitz games and published by THQ this game sports the nickelodeon splat right on the box letting us know that this is a fine game based on the cartoon based on the game.. In fact one of the special extras on the disc is an episode of the cartoon. Read more…
