The actresses helped celebrate Way Too Wonderland, the newest chapter in the storybook lives of the Ever After High royals and rebels. The series follows them as they adventure through Wonderland like never before in order to save the day. The episodes are available now as an all-new Netflix original series!
Every single day, Laura Marano is just getting us even more excited to hear more of her music.
The 19-year-old actress and singer sat down with GulfNews during her trip to Dubai and opened up about her upcoming record and release date (Spring 2016!). Check it:
On her favorite song so far: “It’s really hard. The challenging aspect is choosing which songs go on the record and which don’t. It’s just like telling your children, ‘I don’t love you as much as this.’ I’m continuing to create every day — even on this trip. I had a keyboard in my room to rehearse, and the most beautiful view ever, and I was writing songs with my music director [Allison Kaplan]. It’s almost funny, because I love writing, but at the same time I’m like, ‘I have too many songs, it’s too overwhelming.’ One of my favorites, the hook is, ‘You can be my Spider-Man, and I’ll be your Mary Jane.’ It’s called ‘Mary Jane’. I think it’s just really sweet and awesome — the vibe, the production of the song is really cool.”
On her college plans: “I’m planning to get my degree. It might not be when everyone else gets their degree — I might get it when I’m like, 30 years old — but it’s definitely in my plans…My major is Politics, Philosophy and Law, but we’ll see. It’s going to be a lot of work, but you have to understand, I’ve been doing that since I’ve been five — balancing school and my career. It’s a lot of sleepless nights, but both my parents are teachers and I love learning.”
On her built-in fan base: “I think I’ve been so lucky to acquire this amazing fan base through Austin & Ally, and there’s no way I would want to just say goodbye to that fan base. Even here, just meeting adorable children is one of my favorite things ever. But obviously, especially with my music, I’m going to try to broaden the age of the fan base as much as possible. It’s definitely a difficult task, but I think it’s a hundred per cent possible to keep the younger audience and still acquire an older audience, as well.”
In “Comebacks & Crystal Balls”, a visit with a fortune teller convinces Austin that something bad will happen during his comeback concert — and with Dez’s (Calum Worthy) help, it kind of does — he gets stuck inside a box!
Meanwhile, Trish (Raini Rodriguez) believes she is going to meet a prince, which totally explains her Cinderella-esque gown.
“Comebacks & Crystal Balls” airs TONIGHT, Sunday, August 9th @ 9PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.
JJJ Fun Fact: The song Austin sings on tonight’s ep, “Take It From The Top”, was written by Jordan Fisher.
We finally got our first listen of original music from Laura Marano!
“Obviously, it sounds a little different than how it really sounds. It’s just on guitar for today so it’s a really special version just for you guys,” the 19-year-old singer introduced the track during her performance at IBN Battuta in Dubai.
Laura added, “It’s called ‘Layover’ and it’s an original song that Ally [Kaplan] and I wrote together. It’s cool if you don’t know the words, just dance. Work it out.”
Laura Marano‘s week was probably way more exciting than anyone else’s.
The 19-year-old Austin & Ally actress and singer headed to Dubai with her family and friends for a special surprise with Dubai Summer Surprises where she actually surprised people at Dubai Airport with a performance. You can check it out below!
“Got flowers, a dress, and the warmest welcome from the @DSS_social last night! #MyDSS #MyDubai #ThatLastOneRhymes,” Laura wrote on Twitter.
