Rudy Mancuso Dishes On Collaborating with Girlfriend Maia Mitchell

Rudy Mancuso Dishes On Collaborating with Girlfriend Maia Mitchell

Rudy Mancuso and Maia Mitchell are one of the couples that JJJ admires a lot.

The two musicians, who’ve done a few projects together, keep their relationship relatively quiet, so when we get any kind of tibdit, we love it.

Rudy recently chatted with J-14 about possibly collaborating with Maia again and it’s something they’ve definitely talked about.

We talk about it a lot actually,” Rudy says. “There’s actually not a lot we’ve done together because we’re really not comfortable releasing something unless it’s really true [to us].”

And by chance, if that project could be something related to Teen Beach Movie or another sequel…”Now that I’m thinking about it, it would be a lot of fun,” he adds.

Check out the full interview with Rudy below!

Maia Mitchell Was Really Worried About Being a Good Role Model After Her US Television Debut

Maia Mitchell Was Really Worried About Being a Good Role Model After Her US Television Debut

You never really notice it, but there’s actually a lot of pressure for young stars to be good role models — and Maia Mitchell knows that all too well.

The Fosters actress recently chatted with Grazia about the pressure she faced and it happened all around the time she was making her US debut in the series and in Teen Beach Movie.

“When I first started working in the US I was constantly anxious about whether I was acting as a ‘good role model’ and how articulate or eloquent I was coming across in interviews, social media, whatever,” Maia says.


“I’m completely past that now, but I wish I hadn’t let it affect me so much, especially during an exciting time for me.”

Instead of enjoying everything was happening, Maia was constantly worrying about how she was answering questions and what she was saying.

Maia adds, “Although, dealing with that has definitely helped me to let go of things I don’t really have control over and made me more solid in myself.”

Only Maia Mitchell and Cody Simpson could look plain white t-shirts look so good!

The Aussie-born actress and singer join model Charlee Fraser in the new campaign which promotes Bond’s new Homegrown tee line, that are made out of 100% Australian-grown cotton.

The new campaign was perfect for Maia, who revealed in an interview that she loves the connection she shares with it.

“I have been very careful about what kind of products and companies I endorse just because I don’t want to be promoting anything that I don’t have any kind of connection to,” she says.

Cody adds that the campaign “makes me feel close to home. And it’s a privilege to be working with such a classic Aussie brand that I grew up with.”

The range will be available in Aussie stores and online from mid-August.

Maia Mitchell & More Celebs Reveal The Last TV Shows They Binge-Watched (Exclusive)

Maia Mitchell & More Celebs Reveal The Last TV Shows They Binge-Watched (Exclusive)

Are you a big binger when it comes to television?

Sometimes we don’t have time to watch our favorite shows live, and other times we just love to kick back on the weekend and watch ten episodes of a show we’ve never seen before.

We recently caught up with some celebs and asked them which show they last binge-watched. Check it:

Maia Mitchell: “Season one of 24.”

Sabrina Carpenter: “13 Reasons Why! I was excited to see that show and once I started, I couldn’t stop!”

Marcus Scribner: “I feel like the last show that I binge watched was Grimm, and I just watched the entire five seasons which was really, really good. I enjoyed those. Watching The Walking Dead has been an amazing experience.”

Brent Rivera: “I binge watch Black-ish! And I also binge-watch YouTube videos honestly. You can keep on scrolling and just keep on pressing YouTube videos, one after another. You just can’t stop.”

Peyton List: “I binge watched Westworld. I think it’s so good and it’s such an interesting concept. Typically, I binge-watch four episodes, and then I don’t watch anything for a week because I’m shooting. But then I’ll go and binge-watch the rest.”

Kendra-Leigh Timmins: “The last show I binge-watched was Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I’d never seen it before and I LOVED it. I love special effects makeip and stunts so it was right up my alley, plus there’s nothing like watching a girl kick some serious vampire butt.”

TELL JJJ: What’s the last show you binge-watched?

Callie Still Might Be In Legal Trouble on 'The Fosters'

Callie Still Might Be In Legal Trouble on 'The Fosters'

Throughout the entire season premiere of The Fosters, our hearts were going a mile a minute and rightfully so.

After Callie was rescued by Stef from the sex-trafficking ring, Stef put Callie in her place by telling her she needs to value her own life.

“Callie has a ferocious sense of justice. She’s got strength and power. [But] she doesn’t have any ability to apply her best thinking to herself,” EP Peter Paige told TVLine about Callie’s ongoing story.

Maia Mitchell, who plays the character, told TVGuide that this really is a turning point for her.

“She really realizes that as much as she wants to help people, she often puts herself in really dangerous positions,” she says. “That really affects the people in her life and I think the whole experience really cuts deep for her.”

Maia adds, “She really takes it on and tries to kind of take a different road. It’s all about self-improvement for her this season.”

That’s great that Callie is now on a straighter path, but that doesn’t mean she’s out of legal trouble just yet.

I will just say, as in the real world, justice is not always a straight line, nor always entirely clear-sighted,” Peter says.

Next episode, now please!

What would Maia Mitchell do if she were in the position of her character on The Fosters?

JJJ recently asked her what advice she’d give Callie going into the fifth season.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Maia Mitchell

“Callie is such an impulsive person and when she puts herself in all of these life threatening situations,” Maia told us. “I really don’t know what advice I would give her, other than to avoid the situation entirely.”

“Callie always seems to get herself out safely,” she added. “She’s good under pressure. But you’re going to see her realize that that can’t always be the case.”

In case you missed it, see what Maia told us about the family this season, and Callie’s complicated relationship with Brandon (David Lambert).

Maia Mitchell Says 'The Fosters' Season 5 is a 'Turning Point' For Callie (Exclusive)

Maia Mitchell Says 'The Fosters' Season 5 is a 'Turning Point' For Callie (Exclusive)

Maia Mitchell is giving us the goods on Callie’s journey on The Fosters this summer.

JJJ recently caught up with her about the upcoming fifth season.

“Season five is a real turning point for Callie. The situation that plays out in our premiere episode is a huge wake-up call for Callie that she can’t keep making these dangerous, impulsive decisions and it really informs her choices moving forward,” Maia told us. “You see her making huge efforts to be more grounded, she invests a lot of her energy in her art and really tries to anchor herself in that space and explore who she is as an artist. Of course it may not always work! But she’s trying.”

“As far as the family is concerned, as well-intentioned as these kids are, they attract trouble so you won’t see Stef or Lena catch a break this season,” she said.

This season also tackles a very real issue in sex trafficking.

“Sex trafficking is an issue I care about, my parents shared the research with my brother and I growing up,” Maia said. “What is particularly shocking is that the numbers are growing. Human trafficking grew 35 percent in 2017, and that’s in the United States alone so it’s a growing issue and one that is not often in the spotlight. I’m really glad our writers took the opportunity to shine a light to this issue.”
