"Shake It Up!" star Bella Thorne has long been ready for her close-up, but now she’s also ready to get her groove on. The Disney actress is hard at work on her debut disc, and she recently dished about her forthcoming album to MTV News.
“Well, I think what fans can expect is [for it] just to be very different from anyone, because I don’t like to be one of those artists where you can be like ‘Oh yeah, I know them from that song,'" the Disney starlet explained, clearly taking notes from other one-time Mouse House princesses like Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato. Or, even Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera for that matter, all of whom have gone on to have successful music careers. “All my songs are very different from each other. So I don’t want to be known as only one genre.”
In case you haven’t noticed, we here at Hollywood Crush really, really appreciate good-looking guys. So, you can imagine that we get pretty stoked when they happen to come in DNA-sharing sets. And, as it turns out, Hollywood has plenty of brothers to keep us swooning for days. So, we rounded up the current crop of hottie siblings that you might just describe as Baldwins.
Liam and Chris are two of the most strapping guys in La La Land. They look like Disney princes brought to life, which definitely explains Liam’s career trajectory. (By the way, did we mention that they are Aussie-surfer hot to the next level?) And, just when we thought we couldn’t get enough of the “Hunger Games” hottie and his hammer-wielding brother, there’s a third one named Luke. Any more lurking around, guys?
Things are getting pretty horny on the just-released "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack sampler.
First off, we need to remind you that Jay-Z is overseeing it. And he’s enlisted the help of Beyoncé, Gotye, Fergie, Florence and the Machine, will.i.am and Lana Del Ray (among others). So, this soundtrack is obviously poised to be one of director Baz Luhrmann’s greatest album hits. And that's saying a lot considering the soundtracks for "Romeo + Juliet" and "Moulin Rouge!" are pretty stellar and unforgettable. “Elephant Love Song Medley,” anyone?
Just like there are now three Hemsworth brothers to lust after, we decided this week to pay homage to another set of hot siblings. As it turns out, there’s another Skarsgård brother that gets our pulses racing. Shout out to Alexander’s baby brother, Bill, that star of the new Netflix series, “Hemlock Grove.” Alex, welcome Bill to the Hump Day Hottie Club.
Check out this dreamy photo of Bill, and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: This 22-year-old grew up in Sweden (obvi), and if you think that Bill is a bland a name for this Swede, think again. His very Scandinavian full name is Bill Istvan Gunther Skarsgard. Um, hot. And, in addition to following in the footsteps of his brother, Alexander, his dad is also a big-time actor. You might know him as Stellan Skarsgård.
Ashley Tisdale is no stranger to making us LOL. Look at her work in any of the "High School Musical" flicks for some prime examples of her comedic abilities. But, the singer/actress admitted to us at the premiere of "Scary Movie 5" in L.A. last week that this flick reveals a very different funny side of The Tis.
"I've always been big fan of the movies, and it's such a different type of comedy than I'm used to, so I was super excited just to be a part of it," she explained.
Ashley was joined by a number of surprising folks in the film, including Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen, as well as Mike Tyson and Jerry O’Connell who—wait for it—spoof “Fifty Shades Of Grey.” (We think you can figure out who is taking on the Christian Grey role. We hope.)
Paging everyone in the entire world: Selena Gomez is all grown up and she's not afraid to show it. When the singer took the stage at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night, she brought her brand-new single, "Come & Get It," to the show—and a spicy, saucy new image.
In a little red number, she took her stage persona to the next level, thanks to world music influences, borrowing heavily from Indian culture and splashy Bollywood performance numbers. Prior to hitting the stage, Selena made it clear she was looking to Britney Spears as an influence for the performance. And watching her perform it was clear that she’s boned up on everything Brit. Did you also get déjà vu during her set, feeling like you were watching a 2.0 version of Britney's infamous “I’m A Slave 4 U” VMA performance from back in the day?
Chadwick Boseman has us swooning. And it might have something to do with the way he looks in a uniform. The actor portrays baseball great Jackie Robinson in the film "42," out this week on the big screen. So, that makes him the perfect candidate to be this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Check out this dreamy photo of Chadwick, and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: The 30-year-old was born in South Carolina before settling down in Brooklyn. Before Hollywood came knocking, Chad proved he was a bit of a smarty pants. He attended Howard University and then went on to to take his hotness abroad studying at the British American Dramatic Academy at Oxford. And, by the way, this scholar/actor is currently single.
With us still mourning the loss of Christopher Abbott (a.k.a. the adorable, somewhat emo Charlie) after learning he left "Girls" this week, there’s some new casting scoop making its way out into the world.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Dr. Who" actor Richard E. Grant (who was more importantly in "Spice World"...as well as other stuff like "The Iron Lady"), has joined the show. He will play a bloke named Jasper in the season premiere. Other than that, we know nothing else about what his role will be in shaping the lives of Hannah (Lena Dunham) and her wayward pals.
While Marnie was never very good at making a clean break from Charlie on "Girls," it seems that series creator Lena Dunham and Christopher Abbott, who plays Charlie, are having an easier time parting ways. The New York Post reports that the actor has left the series.
"[Chris] is grateful for the experience of collaborating with Lena, Judd [Apatow], and the entire 'Girls' cast and crew, but right now he’s working on numerous other projects and has decided not to return to the show," his rep told Page Six.
Sources added that Lena and Christopher weren’t getting along on set.
We already know that Niall Horan is likely to show up shirtless in the One Direction 3-D flick, "This Is Us," and now it seems like he’ll be missing something else at the film's premiere in August.
On Wednesday, the towheaded heartthrob confirmed that his braces are finally off! He even treated fans to some before and after pics of the dental work.
In the hours leading up to the reveal of his straight chompers, the 19-year-old expressed hope that he would soon be braces-less. He wrote (with very enthusiastic punctuation), “Morning. ! This is it ! I'm goin to the dentist! I think this is my last hour with braces! Oh how I'm gona miss them ! Naaaaaaat !”
