PRETTYMUCH 'Bonded Like Glue' When They First Met (Exclusive)

Imagine this — you’re just playing solo music and all of the sudden you’re in a five-piece boy band.

That’s almost what PRETTYMUCH went through and the guys — Austin Porter, Brandon Arreaga, Edwin Honoret, Nick Mara and Zion Kuwonu — are dishing all about how they gelled together.

“We bonded like glue,” Austin tells JJJ exclusively.

Brandon added on that note, “We moved into a house together, hung out, went to movies and just go on really well. It just worked!”


However, it wasn’t without its’ challenges.

“The first 3 months living together and just getting used to it…” Edwin remembers, “If you put any group of guys together you’re going to have fights and stuff and we just learned more about each other and how we work together.”

They also had to used to sharing things too.

“Just getting used to what we were ok with and what we weren’t,” Brandon adds.

We’re glad it did work out — because the guys are about to get a huge boost at the Teen Choice Awards, where they’ll be performing next weekend.

If you missed it, you can listen to their debut single “Would You Mind” right now!

'Raven's Home' Star Issac Ryan Brown Is Afraid Of This One Thing (Exclusive)

If it’s one thing you know about Booker on Raven’s Home, it’s that he has confidence like no one else.

Issac Ryan Brown plays the son of Raven Baxter and Devon Carter, who just happens to get psychic visions just like his momma.

Booker takes advantages of his newfound powers plus his big and whimsical ideas to help him make sense of middle school and his life at home.

In real life though, if Issac had a power, it’d probably be some solar power related because he doesn’t love being in the dark.

“I hate when my mom turns all the lights off and her saying it’s wasted energy,” he tells us during a rapid fire interview. “So I use my solar power energy light that charges from the sun.”
