The boys of The Wanted recently spent some time in L.A working on a new album and allowed cameras to follow them around on their journey to making it big in America. The first episode premiered last night on E! And it was quite the first episode.
It starts off with the band arriving at their new digs that management has set up for them. They were basically running around like children in a candy store. They break in their first night with ping pong and drinks; well except for poor baby Nathan who is not of legal drinking age.
We’re also introduced to the two ladies of The Wanted. Tom’s girlfriend Kelsey is the more out-going, loud, and rambunctious one. She’s like one of the boys, as Tom points out, and even says that she may as well have a penis at some points. Siva’s girlfriend Nareesha is the more conservative and soft spoken one out of the two but as the show progresses, she’s not afraid to speak her mind…about everything.
While the wait until the premiere of The Wanted Life whittling down (5 more days! It’s not like we’re counting or anything…), the boys of The Wanted sat down with “The King of E!” Ryan Seacrest for an intimate interview where they open up about life, love and signing with Scooter Braun.
Max George, Siva Kaneswaren, Jay McGuiness, Nathan Sykes and Tom Parker were their usual fun selves as they took Ryan on a tour of their swanky and messy L.A home where they shared stories of their first ever gig and how Max spends the most time in the hot tub where he goes on cold nights to “get rid of his sins.” Sure Max, sure. Jay adds, “it became this weird luxurious petri dish for bacteria.” Um, too much information there, Jay.
Along with on-on-one interviews, the guys show a bit of a different side of the band in this sit-down interview and we get to hear poor Nathan sounding all raspy before he underwent throat surgery in April.
The Wanted Life premieres Sunday June 2 on E! but in the meantime, watch their manager Scooter Braun give the boys a lecture in partying HERE.
Carly Rae Jepsen premiered a new song titled “Take A Picture” during the first of American Idol’s two-part season finale, Wednesday night.
Jepsen got a little help from her fans when it came to writing the new track. As part of the Coca-Cola Perfect Harmony contest, her fans were able to vote on their favourite lyrics that would ultimately make it onto the final product. “It was great to ask fans and find the answer to ‘What do the listeners love’,” the 27-year-old told Teen Vogue. She added that even though she didn’t have any say in how the song turned out, it was a really cool process.
Fans of the singing reality show can watch American Idol crown their winner on tonight’s show.
Jason Derulo has just dropped the single, “The Other Side” off his currently untitled third album. Shockingly, the track doesn’t start with reminding us of his name.
It’s almost hard to believe Derulo has been around for three years—he’s been pretty successful and his music is the less aggravating of most top 40 hits. You can’t pretend you didn’t love “In Your Head,” or “Ridin Solo.”
While on On Air With Ryan Seacrest, Derulo told Seacrest that he wanted to make a record that he could “listen to all the time…not just this year, not just next year, but for a long time.”
This is a typical radio song that is bound to do well, but nothing will ever beat “Watcha Say.”
The X Factor’s Emblem3 has just released their new single “Chloe (The One That I Want),” on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show the morning of April 15.
This song falls into that pop-rock genre, describing their music as “a blend between Maroon 5, Sublime and kind of that 1D pop.” Just Jared Jr.
What do you think of their single?
“Chloe (The One That I Want)” by Emblem3 is now available on iTunes.
Listen to the single below
According to Miley Cyrus, Nick Jonas’ song “Wedding Bells,” which he performs with his brothers, is all about her. During an interview with Ryan Seacrest, she said she thinks it’s “pretty blatant” that she’s the subject of the song, which is all about wanting to “try one last time” with a past love and not wanting to “hear the wedding bells chime.”
Miley is currently engaged to The Hunger Games’ Liam Hemsworth, however she dated Nick when they were both in Disney. Online sleuths are already touting the anniversary mentioned in Nick’s song (June 11) is the exact same day Miley describes meeting her first love in her autobiography, Miles to Go.
She told Ryan she has no hard feelings: ”Everyone has to write songs that are about things that they felt and he even introduced that this isn’t the way that I am,” she said. “So, you can’t ever hate on someone for writing about something you’ve been through. I think that you kind of get a fair warning when you date an artist and someone that’s a writer—when you’re going through things that you’re going to end up hearing about it on the radio.”
It must be bittersweet to date a musician like Nick Jonas or Taylor Swift (who also talks about past relationships in her songs), but ultimately, these personal experiences make their songs so relatable. At the same time, it might be a bit presumptuous for Miley to assume it’s all about her. Still, at least they were positive words right? A song called “Wedding Bells” is a lot more flattering than a song called “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together!”
If “Gangnam Style” singer Psy specifically wanted to see me mimic his trademark horse-riding moves, I’d be flattered. Ryan Seacrest on the other hand, was all nerves, putting off Psy’s invitation to dance at every possible moment. Ryan, WHEN PSY SAYS DANCE, YOU DANCE. Have some respect, man.
After Seacrest’s interview with the Korean singer, he wouldn’t join in when staff members and guests like Rita Ora performed the choreography alongside Psy. Don’t worry though, eventually the power of Psy’s “Gangnam Style” takes over and Ryan pays his due.
The video was posted on Seacrest’s YouTube page, which also includes an interview in which Psy talks about offering dance lessons to Usher.

I can’t really relate to this (since I’m a girl myself), but how does Bruce Jenner do it? He’s basically surrounded by woman in his family 24/7. Not only does he have a daughter from his first marriage, a step-father to Kris’ daughters from her first marriage (Kim, Kourtney and Khloe), and Kendall and Kylie (with Kris), he must have a ton of responsibilities under his belt.
The former Olympian was in studio with Ryan Seacrest the other day, where he was asked (FF to 1:54) what happens when a “new man” enters the family. HINT: Kim + Kanye= Kimye. As soon as Bruce hears the question, he clenches his teeth into a tight smile and it looks as though he doesn’t want to say what he really feels.
Bruce played it safe and said, “I have to back up, I have to accept their decision, and I watch it very closely.”
After months of speculation, Jennifer Lopez is officially leaving ‘American Idol.’
Chatting with host Ryan Seacrest during his radio show on Friday,the singer, who served as a judge for Seasons 10 and 11, confirmed her departure just after fellow judge’s Steven Tyler’s announcement that he too, would be leaving the show as well.
“I really was dreading this phone call with you,” she told him. “I honestly feel like the time has come that I have to get back to doing the other things that I do that I’ve put kind of on hold because I love Idol so much.”
Lopez then continued by explaining how busy her life is and the many opportunities she still has. And seeing that she is also a mother of twins, she added, “Something has to give and that’s where I am right now.”
But fans of Lopez shouldn’t fret. While she may not be coming back, she tells Seacrest she’s always going to support the show.
“No matter what you guys need over there, I am always going to be there,” she said. “I don’t know if I can be there every single day, all the time, the way we’ve been doing it the past two years.”
While it’s sad to see her leave. JLo is a businesswoman and has other responsibilities.
That being said, who do you think should replace her on Idol?
Recently, we’ve seen
Sacha Baron Cohen General Aladeen promoting his new movie The Dictator by doing all sorts of shenanigans, like dumping ashes on Ryan Seacrest or “murdering” Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis.
The guy never wavers or goes out of character and there’s hardly an eye flicker to ruin the joke. That’s why it’s so interesting that Sacha Baron Cohen gave a rare interview dressed out of character. Naturally, it was BBC, because if you’re going to do a serious interview, you may as well do it with them.
Cohen looked pared down in a beige suit without the beard and entourage of female guards. We also got a chance to hear his real voice and swanky British accent. Speaking to BBC’s Will Gompertz in Cannes, he joked that granting this interview out of character was probably a mistake.
Previously, he never granted personal interviews because he was afraid his characters would be compromised when people recognized him. Although doing interviews as Ali G and Borat could be seen as a publicity stunt, he said it was to protect the comedy and the movie.
He also said his new film The Dictator was developed because he always found Gaddafi “hilarious,” which is as good a reason as any.
To celebrate Ryan Seacrest hitting 100 million views on YouTube, Justin Bieber helped him create the ultimate viral video, featuring dogs, babies and cheesy dancing. We also watch Aziz Ansari’s hilarious interview on Anderson Cooper’s show — or wait, that’s not Aziz Ansari! Finally, we watch golden video of two cats boxing.
To celebrate his YouTube channel passing 100 million views, Ryan Seacrest decided to create the ULTIMATE video. He asked for Justin Bieber’s help and the singer was totally game. The key ingredient to spice up a viral video is obvs a lot of cute puppies in slow motion.
Next comes four babies that appear out of thin air, one of which looks boss in a toque. The polo-wearing baby sneezes, which is a total WIN! Let’s replay that in slow motion.
Third comes the inevitable dance sequence that involves a pop and infamous “dream hands.” Justin follows the pre-recorded choreography lesson, created by a man who wears his khakis a little too high. Are we missing anything? Duh, your video’s success rate dramatically increases if you include a bad cover of a pop song.
They lose me with the final ingredient, which is an appearance from D-List celebrity. Thankfully, Justin breaks into dance to save it.
Watch it here:
Sacha Baron Cohen stopped by Australia’s Today show to coerce you into seeing “The Dictator” and also talk about hot button topics like Rihanna, Mel Gibson and Ryan Seacrest.
Here are a few things I learned:
1) Mel Gibson is now the head of the Republic of Wadiya’s Department for Race Relations and on the board for the Museum of Intolerance.
2) Aladeen has paid for sex with Rihanna so many times that he would have had enough air miles to fly him around the world 10 times first class.
3) Reporters are terrified to comment on anything lest it backlash on them. Instead of joking around, they answer with suppressed laughs that sound like awkward exhales of air. This reporter/interviewee relationship unintentionally reflects the relationship between media and tyrants. Deep.
4) Aladeen has 25 female virgin guards. “I check their virginity every night with the head of my penis.” Though he goes too far with this one: the first rule of a politician is they should only harass female staff because they only cry, whereas guys will always talk.
5) The infidel Ryan Seacrest is used to having Asian men all over his chest so it wasn’t such a big deal when Kim Jong-il’s was all spilled all over him.

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Zac Efron wants to be the next Leonardo and everyone goes insane when Miley Cyrus is “rushed” to the hospital
HIT: Rihanna shares vacation pics on Facebook
While no one can ask her about her personal life, RiRi doesn’t seem to mind sharing personal photos online (see her Twitter). This time, she’s sharing her Hawaii vacation photos where she’s swimming with sharks, surfing and looking good in a bikini sans makeup. The natural beauty even gets risque, as she goes topless under a waterfall. It’s this kind of uninhibited lady balls (i.e. ovaries) that has everyone around her enthralled, even director Steven Spielberg who was snapped taking her photo like a fanboy.
MISS: Drake tries to calm down a fight so he can party with models
Drake probably thought being famous would guarantee him safe passage into London night clubs. Alas, he was wrong as his entourage got into a bit of a scuffle with the security. Breaking up a fight so you can enjoy “Models Night Out?” Not as impressive as Ryan Gosling, in my opinion. Then again, nothing is as impressive as Ryan Gosling.
HIT: Zac Efron wants to be the next Leonardo DiCaprio
The Today Show asked Zac which famous actor’s career would he like to emulate, and naturally he answered with Leo. If you saw Titanic in 3D, or on the TV, this past weekend, you’ll remember how much of a babe young Leo was. Well, Zac’s got the looks down. Now all he needs is an Oscar.
MISS: Miley Cyrus goes to the hospital
Someone call the national guard! Miley Cyrus cut her finger after an unfortunate blender incident and went to the hospital with boyfriend Liam Hemsworth to get stitches. The miss here isn’t that Miley cut her finger, it’s that the story went viral. WTF? Read more…
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, James Franco continues to confuse us as he lipsyncs to Rihanna and Zac Efron is caught shirtless to the public’s delight.
HIT: One Direction’s Harry talks about his bromance with Louis
Harry Styles talked to VEVO in a private interview about his bromance with Louis Tomlinson and about how their friendship is so serious that they became roomates in London. Aw! Harry Styles + Louis Tomlinson = Larry Stylinson. “We get on really well,” he said. Since we started in the X Factor house me and Louis had always said we wanted to move in together and that was pretty much it. It just kind of happened.”
MISS: James Franco films himself lip-syncing to Rihanna
He’s also evolved from looking like K Fed to that guy from LMFAO. Franco’s relationship to WhoSay is like Kanye’s with Twitter: the stuff they post is bat shit crazy but I will eat it up any day. In some ways, this is a mega HIT.
HIT: Zac Efron gets shirtless in Australia
Rihanna is finally commenting on the collaborations she released with Chris Brown three weeks ago, saying that the whole thing was innocent. She talked about the situation this morning on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show — it’s the first time she’s publicly commented on the remixes in an interview.
“The first song that came about was ‘Birthday Cake’ … we ended up recording [the two songs] at the same time and executing them together,” she explained to Seacrest. “But I reached out to [Brown] about doing ‘Birthday Cake’ because that’s the only person that, really, it made sense to do the record.”
She said that despite everything (aka the 2009 assault on her that ended their relationship) he was the man for the job. ”We did two records — one for my fans, one for his fans — and that way our fans can come together,” Rihanna explained. “There shouldn’t be a divide, you know? It’s music and it’s innocent.”
Rihanna also talked about her debut movie Battleship and her small clothing collection with Armani. But the media still focuses on Chris Brown despite all of her accomplishments. I think it’s starting to be too much. Just leave the girl alone and focus on something positive! [KiisFM]
Today, Twitter was harshly divided between those that were doers and those that were feeling a little under the weather. Um, party too much at the Oscars?
First we present Demi Lovato, Ashley Tisdale and Rihanna who are firmly in the stay-under-the-covers camp, though probably for different reasons. While Demi and Rihanna are clearly too tired from the Oscars, Ashley Tisdale is presumably still angry that she wasn’t nominated. Patience Ashley, your day will come. Nicki Minaj was clearly divided from her counterparts. She not only opted to get out of bed and do something, but to make that something drinking margaritas.
Thoughtful insights came from Wiz Khalifa, who wished his mom a happy birthday, and Ryan Seacrest, who is sending a subliminal message to Sacha Baron Cohen. Message: you do not respect me, you are dead to me (okay that might be a stretch). Deadmau5 had my favourite insight of the day because it’s totally true: “How Its Made” segments ALWAYS feature acid clown music. Finally we have Rainn Wilson who dodged a bullet last night. Luckily he caught himself in time before he let himself congratulate the French for The Artist… joking, we love the French!
It’s red carpet moments like these that make me cringe but it’s also partly why I watch. Midway through his interview with Ryan Seacrest,
Sacha Baron Cohen the Dictator spilled sand “Kim Jong-Il’s” ashes on the E! host.
Ryan Seacrest did not look impressed and who can blame him? The guy is just doing his job and WHOP! There we go, ashes all over the expensive suit. Security immediately escorted the actor away from the interview but his plan worked because the next few celebrities who saw Ryan’s suit and the leftover ashes couldn’t stop asking questions.
The stunt doesn’t make me want to see his movie more, it just makes me more intrigued to see what epic publicity stunt he’ll come up with next.
Selena Gomez continues to show the world what a sweet, sincere young woman she is.
As reported on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show today, the singer surprised a 13-year-old girl named Hana at an L.A. hospital. Hana has a fatally genetic disease called progeria that dramatically ages kids ten times faster than normal. So, she may be 13 but looks and feels like a 70 year old.
Hana’s tutor Sara wrote Ryan Seacrest a touching letter about Sara’s condition and how Selena is her favourite singer in the whole wide world. It’s hard to make the Christmas holiday fun when you have a friend in the hospital. Ryan decided to help Sara and Hana out by getting Selena to visit them in the hospital.
Selena could have been busy recording or doing press for her music or hanging out with her boyfriend Justin Bieber, but instead, she decided to selflessly devote some time to a dying 13-year-old girl.
“I can’t believe it. I had so much to say, but I didn’t want to cry in front of her because I didn’t want to look like a baby,” Hana told Ryan.
Because of Selena, Hana now has a Christmas she will never forget. Stories like this one really tug at your heartstrings, don’t they?
Some notable celebrities sent out some tweets about the death of Steve Jobs:
Ashton Kutcher: ”I never thought I could be so busted up about the loss of someone I never met.
Ryan Seacrest: “‘Have the courage to follow ur heart & intuition. They already know what u truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.’ – Steve Jobs”
Taylor Swift: “I never met Steve Jobs, but I always wanted to. What a tragic loss. I can’t believe it. About to call my family and tell them I love them.”
Brad Paisley: “I am glad I get to live in the world Steve Jobs enhanced.”
