On starting the band: “I didn’t want to just rush back into things [after the Jonas Brothers breakup]. It’s very tough in the music industry to have a second chance and come back with new music that has an effect again.” – Joe
On their chemistry: “It’s kind of unheard of to start a band with people who all get along, spend every second together and don’t want to kill each other.” – Joe
On their unique sound: “We sound like our personalities. A mix of different people from different places who are all best friends and all having fun.” – Cole
The 29-year-old YouTube phenomenon – real name Colleen Ballinger – opened up about her success. Check it:
On her YouTube reputation: “It’s been hard being on the internet and not being respected by people in Hollywood. A lot of people think most YouTubers are just untalented kids who film themselves for four minutes, and that’s all they do for their week. I really hope this opens doors for other YouTubers.”
Jerry Seinfeld on Miranda Sings: “When I met Colleen the day before we shot the episode, I could tell immediately that she can be funny to any audience on any screen. And the audience numbers we saw for that episode tell me that she can easily take her audience from one digital sphere to another.”
Netflix on Haters Back Off: “We believe in our gut, Miranda, as popular as she is, will help us make noise. This isn’t just taking her short-form [content] and stretching it into 22 minutes. It’s a bizarre family comedy, and a commentary on society today and our fascination with fame.”
Bella Thorne goes for a run on the beach in a one-piece swimsuit while posing for Galore‘s new cover spread!
The 18-year-old actress opened up to the mag about how she doesn’t have an agenda when taking photos with famous people, how she loves to watch the red carpet shows, and her thoughts on working out. Check it:
On posing with other famous faces: “I don’t know that I’ve ever taken a photo with somebody famous to like, get people to talk about it. The only time that I ever do that is when I’m with Zendaya, because I’ll take a Snapchat because I know our fans love us together and they don’t get to see us together often anymore.’”
On the “Ask Her More” campaign: “I really like to know what people are wearing. Ask more, for sure. Ask about the roles and what you have coming up but totally, I do want to know what they’re wearing. When I watch The Oscars, my boyfriend [Gregg Sulkin] and I have an Oscar party, and they’re like, “Okay, we need to record the first part since everyone won’t be here till later.” And he’s like, “Why do you need to see the carpet? You do that all the time.” And I’m like, “OMG bitch, I’m not on the Oscars carpet!” And I felt so weird and like a crazy, young girl-fan who really just wanted to [see the] actors and see every little piece of jewelry they’re wearing. I watched it and I enjoyed it. I guess ask more. Of course everybody wants to hear about [the clothes].”
On working out: “You can tell somebody’s [body is] not from working out if their thighs aren’t big and their butt is big. It’s not humanly possible…because every time you do a squat, or every time you do a lunge—any time you do a workout for your butt—your legs are getting the [muscles]. That’s how you can tell. Any gym goer you see, they have big legs because they don’t skip leg day..”
Joey King shows off her skater girl side in a cute colored blocked hoodie in a photo from the July issue of Marie Claire.
The 16-year-old actress opened up to the mag about learning to skateboard for her role in Smartass and how she took a major tumble in front of Liam Hemsworth!
On learning to skate for her upcoming movie Smartass: “In Smartass, my character skateboards. So I took lessons at a skate park in Simi Valley, California, called Skatelab, and I just really loved it.”
On tricks she can nail: “I can do a front shove-it, which is where you rotate the board around underneath your feet. But I dream of grinding on a rail [skateboarding on a handrail].”
On taking a skate break with Liam Hemsworth: “During a break on Independence Day, I skated around with an assistant director and Liam Hemsworth. I did a trick and didn’t land it, so I got up and kept going. The guys were like, ‘Joey, your knee!’ I was bleeding, apparently.”
On being a female skateboarder: “Usually when I go to my skate park, I’m the only girl there. It’s a very intimidating setting. And I’m just like, “I know you think I’m a girl and I can’t do it, but guess what? I can.”
Elle Fanning looks incredibly chic while on the cover of V Magazine‘s pre-fall issue, on newsstands July 14.
The 19-year-old actress opened up about moving to LA with her older sister Dakota, what she learned from her co-stars and how social media is impacting beauty. Check it:
On who the Neon Demon truly is: “We realized, as we were filming, who the Neon Demon was. I thought it was L.A. or the models, but actually it’s kind of…me. But it’s also beauty. Beauty can be your demise. And this is so prevalent now because of social media and apps that make you look a certain way. People really care about the way they look—all the time.”
On following in her sister Dakota‘s footsteps: “I was born in Georgia. My sister [Dakota Fanning] started ?rst, so she went out with my mom to test it out. Me and my dad stayed behind. Then my sister got all this stu? and was doing movies and we were like, I guess we have to move to L.A. We just stayed. That’s my home. I mean, I was so young. I’m a California girl.”
On learning from her co-star Abbey Lee Kershaw: “In a weird way I kind of idolized [Abbey Lee] when I was young because I loved fashion. She had to teach me how to do the walk for the casting scene. I thought she was just walking, and she was like, ‘No, there’re rules to it. You can’t move your arms. Lean back. Make your legs look longer.’ It’s so intense.”
The three friends partnered up to create BellyBump, the new “Three Men and a Baby App,” which “captures one of the most important journeys of your life through time-lapse videos of your growing belly and growing baby once born.”
“When [my wife] Emily was pregnant with Maiya, I really wanted to make her a time lapse movie but I kept forgetting and it was actually a lot harder than I thought it would be,” Justin told the mag. “And I’m a filmmaker so it should be fairly intuitive for me. So when she was pregnant I thought wouldn’t it be fun if I was able to do something that was unique and make this whole spread of her belly growing but it was really hard. Originally it was going to be something to remind me to take a picture of her belly, then it morphed into this really cool time lapse app.”
“While yes, this app is fun and it’s been a blast making it with two of my best friends… at its core BellyBump is really about celebrating the journey of motherhood,” Justin added. “I’ve never been more in awe of what women are capable of since experiencing my wife give birth and become a mom, so we just wanted to create something that could be useful to moms everywhere and help them in some way capture that magic.”
You can download the BellyBump app now on the App Store.
Zayn Malik looks super hot on the new summer issue #Sexy of Paper magazine, which hits newsstands on June 21.
The 23-year-old singer opened up to the glossy about girlfriend Gigi Hadid, his image, and more. Check it:
On his fans: “If girls find me attractive, then that’s a cool thing. If guys find me attractive, then that’s a cool thing as well. It’s sick. It’s a compliment. I’m blessed by whoever was up there to be who I am and be able to do what I do. I genuinely mean that.”
On Gigi: “I’ve always said it and I still stand by it: I find intelligence attractive. When I learn something from somebody and they teach me something, that’s an attractive thing for me. Obviously, I find physical appearance attractive as well, but it’s definitely squared more towards a personality as I’ve gotten older, because you can’t have a long-term relationship unless you get on with the person. It doesn’t matter really about the exterior.”
On his social life: “I don’t really enjoy going out too much and partying. I like to have my own time and be at home, and I kind of need a partner with me to do that. I just like the security of that. It feels good to me. It feels right. We’ll see each other tonight and probably watch a film. Netflix and chill. Yeah, we do that a lot.”
