Mother’s Day is important to me because I get to show you how much I appreciate and love you. Honestly, everyday should be Mother’s Day, because we should show appreciation for everything mom’s do everyday.

Thank you so much for everything you do!

Love,
Skai

Exclusive: Social Star Hannah Stocking Writes Funny & Love-Filled 'Letter to Mom' for JJJ's Mother's Day Series

Social media star Hannah Stocking‘s letter to her mom is hilarious (dead goldfish), adorable (hi, Sound of Music) and heartfelt.

The 25-year-old model and YouTube star has a way of expressing her feelings that makes you both tear up and laugh at the same time.

In our multi-part series, Hannah wants her mom to know, she’s really, really grateful for everything she has done.

Dear Mom,

Thank you for all of the times you’ve sung me “Edelweiss” to sleep, made my favorite mac n cheese, checked in on me, supported me, inspired me, driven me to school, helped me with my homework, cheered at every volleyball game and most of all given me the most undeserving amount of love.

Words can’t express what a wonderful human being you are and how grateful I am to have you as a role model. You’re the person who never curses, sees the good in everyone, and gives goldfish a proper burial.

You are amazing. You and dad are the hardest working and most kindhearted people I will ever know. I hope to be just like you when I grow up. I truly hope you see that nothing you have done has gone unnoticed. Thank you for all that you do. I love you so much!

Love,
Hannah

DISCOVERED: Indiana Massara's New Song Brings the 'Drama' -- Listen Now

Newcomer Indiana Massara is about to bring the “Drama!”

The 14-year singer from Coolbinia, in Western Australia, debuted her first song, “Drama” on Radio Disney and Spotify on Friday, May 12.

“Drama” is catchy and uplifting with notes of early Fifth Harmony.

Indiana says people might assume the song is about a boy, but no. “To be honest with you ‘Drama’ is about every relationship in our lives…friends, teachers, people you work with….. I mean let’s be real, we all have DRAMA in our lives,” she tells JJJ.

Indiana explains no matter what your personal drama is, she hopes this song will help.

“I love the song because it’s a song of strength,” she explains. “It shows that even if you’re weak or low from someone hurting you, you’ll always still hold the power inside you to get up and walk away like a boss!”

Take a listen to Indiana’s first single “Drama” right now…

Exclusive: Gabi DeMartino Writes Emotional 'Letter to Mom' for JJJ's Mother's Day Series

Exclusive: Gabi DeMartino Writes Emotional 'Letter to Mom' for JJJ's Mother's Day Series

Gabi DeMartino really bares her soul in her emotional letter to her mother.

Gabi who — along with her twin sis Niki, became a YouTube sensation, lifestyle influencer and singer with millions of fans — wants her mom, Nelida (Nelly) DeMartino, to know how much her support truly helped her became the amazing person she is today.

Gabi‘s letter is beautiful and inspirational.

For our multi-part Mother’s Day series, Gabi penned an emotional letter to her mother to let her know how much she means to her.

Dear Mom,

It’s hard to grasp that I’m nearing the age you were when you gave up everything for me. At 22 I have a new perspective that I haven’t had before. Thanks for all you do, Mom. If it weren’t for you not only would I not be alive today, but I wouldn’t be living my dreams.

Thank you for saving me from the bullies when I was 12, for helping me switch schools in the middle of the seventh grade when I needed it most, for understanding when I was failing every class freshman year because my best friend passed away, and thank you for sleeping next to me when I couldn’t go to bed after my first heartbreak.

You would go through anything just to make sure your babies are happy and that’s the greatest thing about you.

I remember the school was so upset, because you would complain to the dean every single time I would come off the bus in tears about how the girls humiliated me… again. You didn’t care how you looked, you only cared about how I felt. Even though I was alone, you made sure I had you.

And now that I’m older with a new perspective, I wish I could tell myself that having you was all I needed. As a kid, it’s hard to see the big picture, and I’m sorry if it ever seemed like I took you for granted.

I love you, Mom.

Love,
Gabi

Exclusive: Jenna Ortega Pens Beautiful 'Letter to Mom' for JJJ's Mother's Day Series

Exclusive: Jenna Ortega Pens Beautiful 'Letter to Mom' for JJJ's Mother's Day Series

Jenna Marie Ortega group up one of six children. In other words, her mom had her hands full!

When the now-14-year-old Jane the Virgin actress discovered a love of acting at only 6 years old, her mom, Natalie Ortega, didn’t hesitate to support her.

No surprise, Jenna (who you might also know as Harley Diaz from Disney Channel’s Stuck in the Middle) is eternally grateful for her mother!

In Jenna‘s eyes, she literally wouldn’t be where she is today without her mom, and you’ll see why.

For our multi-part Mother’s Day series, Jenna penned a letter to her mother, straight from her heart.

Dear Mom,

You are the most phenomenal human being I have ever met. It is as simple at that. You deal with 6 kids, two grandchildren, and a job as a full-time nurse in the ER. You have sacrificed your life for all of us kids to follow our dreams and I cannot even put into words how much I appreciate you. You are always there for me when I need a shoulder to cry on, when I need help with anything, and when I just need a good laugh.

You inspire me every day to work my hardest and to be the kindest me I can be. I owe my whole career to you. You have always believed in me and done whatever you could so I could be happy doing what I love, and I am.

I never want to see you in pain and I never want to put pain upon you. You are my inspiration, my partner in crime, and my hero. I thank God every day for blessing me with the most amazing woman he could muster, one who is an inspiration to all.

You are empowering. You are strong, you are beautiful, and you are kind. I love you, mom. I love you more than anyone could ever imagine.

Love,
Jenna

EXCLUSIVE: R5's Rocky & Ross Lynch Dish About What It Took For Them To Be Producers On 'New Addictions'

EXCLUSIVE: R5's Rocky & Ross Lynch Dish About What It Took For Them To Be Producers On 'New Addictions'

You hear it don’t you? R5‘s new EP, New Addictions is different — it’s better.

The reason is all because Rocky and Ross Lynch are the ones behind it all — they’re the producers.

“It feels really good to have that producer title now,” Rocky tells us. “We’ve been writing and producing music for a long time, but everyone always told us that it wasn’t good enough or it doesn’t sound like other writers and producers are sending in for us to record.”

“It was always a battle with ‘we like these songs we’re making’, but others were basically saying no,” he shared.

But things started to turn around with “If”: “[That] was the first song we finished where we are the only writers and producers on that track. We wrote, we engineered it, we recorded all the vocals, we produced it — just Ross, me and Ellington Ratliff.”

He continued, “We actually popped a bottle of champagne after I sent it into the mixer to celebrate. It was a moment that we’ve been working for, for a long time. We finally arrived there and now that we’ve broken that boundary of others not letting us do it ourselves, we got past that stage and now we are accepted as writers/producers now and can continue to do that.

“I’m excited for the next stage of doing that more and growing as a writing team and seeing where that takes us.”
