For a self confessed geek of all things sci-fi, fantasy and horror, Keahu Kahuanui couldn’t have picked a better way to make waves in the acting world. Keahu plays Danny Mahealani on MTV’s popular series Teen Wolf, which is the perfect geek package tied together with a neat little bow. You have your sci-fi (the supernatural happenings), the fantasy (werewolves) and the horror (don’t get us started on the suspense), so what more could the guy ask for?

During his down time, Keahu has found plenty of ways to keep himself busy with DIY projects, photography and creating jaw dropping cosplay costumes for conventions. When we sat down with Keahu, he told us a little more about his expansive list of hobbies, and talked about what to expect from the rest of the season… Continue reading

Feeling a little awkward, lately? Me, too. That’s probably because the anticipation for Awkward. Season 4 keeps building and building the closer it gets to the release date.

When we last saw Jenna in the Season 3 finale of Awkward., a monumental realization had been made. In one of her infamous voiceovers, she said, “I can finally be that girl who doesn’t need a boy to be happy, because I’ll know how to dance all on my own.” In non-metaphorical terms, she was content with being alone, seemingly for the first time since the series premiere in 2011. Though all our hearts broke a little bit when we realized Matty might be ready to move on, I definitely think it only adds anticipation for the upcoming season. Not because of impending relationship drama, but because, in the words of Queen Beyoncé, who run the world? GIRLS. I’m excited to see how Jenna embraces her newly found freedom, and how she embarks on the journey to loving herself. Once she gets there, I expect to see her commanding a relationship with a new love interest. Aren’t we all a little tired of sulking? I’m ready to see her take action! Continue reading

Once upon a time, there was a popular cable channel that essentially put the music video trend on the pop-culture map, featuring videos like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” Kriss Kross’s “Jump,”  and Britney’s “Oops, I Did It Again!” Although segments like MTV Jams were a huge hit, ultimately MTV chose to go in a different direction, replacing music videos with reality shows like Sixteen and Pregnant and Jersey Shore.

Now, MTV has gotten back into the groove of what brought it fame with the series entitled, Supervideo. The video series is turning out to be a variety of incredibly expensive productions for popular music artists, starring big-name, young stars. For example, “Cups” singer, Anna Kendrick and Kickass’s Chloe Moretz have played leading roles in music videos for LCD Soundsystem and Best Coast.

It’s been awhile since we’ve gotten quality music videos with narrative and creative visuals. Here are some videos to check out.

Top 10 Lessons from MTV’s ‘Girl Code’!

GIRL CODE (Image Credit: MTV)

GIRL CODE (Image Credit: MTV)

Girl Code is The View on steroids.  Good steroids.  The kind that you need to clear your sinuses during allergy season.  Girl Code, like Abutirol, helps us see the world around us clearly…with an estrogen-centric perspective, of course.  The definition of “girl code” according to Urban Dictionary is: “The code of guidelines that girls most obey in order not to get kicked out of the community.”

The show stemmed from MTV’s Guy Code, a reality show that focuses on the rules of being a man in terms of dealing with women, weight, work, and life in general.  In my humble and feminine opinion, Girl Code surpasses anything that Guy Code has ever had to offer. Continue reading

2012 VMA Predictions Are In!

2012 VMA Predictions Are In!

It was August 2011 in the City of Angels, Lady Gaga opened the show in  full ‘Jo Calderone’ mode, Britney bagged herself two awards but the most talked about moment of the night (the crowd went WILD) has got to be Papa Jigga bursting with joy as Beyonce revealed her baby bump to the world.. cue ‘awwwwhs’ all over the globe!

Yes, it’s that time of year again – The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards are returning to LA, honoring some of the biggest and best music videos from the previous year. So, Beyonce won’t be dropping any bombshells this time round but it’s gonna be one hell of a show for sure.

The nominations are in with R&B’s finest Drake and RiRi leading the pack with 5 each for ‘Take Care’ with last years big winner, Pop siren Katy Perry coming close behind with 4 nominations, with Queen Bey also getting 4.

It’s been a good year for music with some amazing music videos but here’s a few (the most important ones) winners predictions  for you!

Video Of The Year

Drake feat. Rihanna – ‘Take Care’
Gotye feat. Kimbra  – ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’
M.I.A. – ‘Bad Girls’
Katy Perry  – ‘Wide Awake’
Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris – ‘We Found Love’

The big one! Last years winner Katy Perry has been nominated again, although with RiRi getting two nominations solo and her duet with Drizzy, I think she’s going to bag this one. The controversy she caused for dancing in that farmers field, causing chaos through the streets of Belfast, being from the Emerald Isle, I have to go for ‘We Found Love’.

Best Male Video

Justin Bieber – ‘Boyfriend’
Frank Ocean – ‘Swim Good’
Drake Feat. Rihanna – ‘Take Care’
Chris Brown – ‘Turn Up the Music’
Usher –  ‘Climax

This has got to go to the most talked about man in R&B at the minute, Frank Ocean for ‘Swim Good’, saying that Drake could go home with gold for ‘Take Care’ despite it being a duet. Chris Brown’s the underdog with ‘Turn Up The Music’, but everyone loves an underdog to come out on top don’t they..

Best Female Video

Rihanna – ‘We Found Love’
Katy Perry – ‘Part of Me’
Beyonce – ‘Love on Top’
Nicki Minaj – ‘Starships’
Selena Gomez & The Scene – ‘Love You Like a Love Song’

Tough call this one, could go to any of the nominees, 5 brilliant videos BUT Katy Perry has the edge, she’s the strongest contender, ‘Part Of Me’ shows us the intense dark side of usually colourful quirky pop star, and it’s an amazing song to get you over that one who broke your heart.

Best New Artist

Fun. feat. Janelle Monae – ‘We Are Young’
Carly Rae Jepsen – ‘Call Me Maybe’
Frank Ocean – ‘Swim Good’
One Direction –‘What Makes You Beautiful’
The Wanted – ‘Glad You Came’

It’s gonna be one hell of a showdown, a battle of the British boybands as The Wanted and One Direction go head to head to bring the moonman back to the UK. Although there’s a chance that neither will win, Carly Rae Jepson with her summer smash ‘Call Me Maybe’ or Fun & Janelle Monae with the anthem ‘We Are Young’ could easily take home the prize. My bet is tha One Direction will win, teen girls everywhere will no doubt make sure of that, surely!

Best Hip-Hop Video

Childish Gambino –  ‘Heartbeat’
Drake feat. Lil Wayne – ‘HYFR’
Kanye West feat. Pusha T, Big Sean & 2 Chainz – ‘Mercy’
Watch the Throne – ‘Paris’
Nicki Minaj feat. 2 Chainz – ‘Beez in the Trap’

Wow,  is this gonna be a battle royale or what! This category has the hottest MC’s the game has to offer at the minute, YMCMB have the biggest chance of winning with 2 of their crew up for the award.  Kanye and G.O.O.D. Music are rising to the top so ‘Mercy’ could easily take the moonman home, but if I’ve to put my money on anyone, it’s gotta be Watch The Throne with ‘Paris’. Kanye and Jigga, the kaleidoscope effect – that sh*t cray! It’s a tough call though, the category is full of heat.

Best Pop Video

One Direction – ‘What Makes You Beautiful’
Fun. feat. Janelle Monae – ‘We Are Young’
Rihanna – ‘We Found Love’
Justin Bieber –‘Boyfriend’
Maroon 5 feat. Wiz Khalifa – ‘Payphone’

It’s gonna be a battle between the One Directioners and the Beliebers for this one, 5 British teen heart-throbs they may be but I think ‘Boyfriend’ will take it home. showing a more grown-up Bieber (..and that falsetto, swoon!) that appeals to his more mature  fans, yet  he still maintains the charisma that made teen girls weak at the knees all around the world.

Best Video With A Message

Demi Lovato – ‘Skyscraper’
Rise Against – ‘Ballad of Hollis Brown’
Kelly Clarkson – ‘Dark Side’
Gym Class Heroes – ‘The Fighter’
K’Naan feat. Nelly Furtado – ‘Is Anybody Out There?’
Lil Wayne – ‘How to Love’

This one has got to go to Demi Lovato, although Kelly Clarkson is a strong contender. The way Demi was able to bounce back to the pop scene with a track like ‘Skyscraper’, after fighting and more importantly overcoming her demons makes her an obvious winner to me.

Best Direction

M.I.A. – ‘Bad Girls’
Duck Sauce – ‘Big Bad Wolf’
Coldplay feat. Rihanna – ‘Princess Of China’
Frank Ocean – ‘Swim Good’
Watch the Throne – ‘Otis’

A strong category, but it’s got to go to ‘Otis’, directed by the genius that is Spike Jonze, the attention to detail is out of this world and Jigga and Yeezy are two of the biggest rappers on the planet right now, if that’s not enough for them to take home the moonman then I don’t know what is!

There you have it, some of my predictions for the VMA’s, there’s a few I haven’t mentioned, ‘Best Choreography’ being one, my money’s on Chris Brown, Breezy got some damn good moves.

As well as the excitement of the awards, there will be performances from Alicia Keys, who will be debuting her new single, eek, exciting! Frank Ocean, Taylor Swift, Pink, One Direction and American rockers Green Day! The performers aren’t the only stars taking to the stage though, Miley Cyrus, Andy Samberg, Wiz Khalifa and Ke$ha are just a few of the names mentioned to be presenting an award.

Did I mention Kevin Hart was hosting this star-studded event? Prepare yourselves’ for some quality standup and laughs throughout, he’s very easy on the eye too.. 😉

You don’t want to miss this one, tune in to the MTV VMA’s this Thursday, September 6th at 8pm in the US or if you’re in the UK, you can catch all the action on Friday, September 7th at 9pm.
