ReCasting American Horror Story

BY: Lauren Miller

So I'm sitting here watching E! News they had a 20 second little story about my favorite tv show "American Horror Story" getting an entirely new cast next season.

*Spolier Alert*

For those who don't know the "American Horror" season ended with the entire Harmon family, expect for Mrs.Harmon's bastard twin fathered by ghost & potential anti-Christ Tate, dieing for various reasons.

From the beginning of the show I predicted that the horror house would end up killing the family both mentally and physically. It seemed like the only nature way to end the season (or potentially the show). But what I assumed would happen in the next season is that a new family would move in and not only would we follow their story, but also we would continue to follow the stories of all the spirits left in the house.

But according to E! News this afternoon we will see a whole new cast next season. According to series creator Ryan Murphy some of the actors are in talks to come back to the show as different characters. Say what? How can they come back as different characters when there's so much left to be explored in the inner character relationships. Mostly Tate. I want to know what will happen with Tate being stuck in the house for eternity with Violet. I want to know if Dr. Harmon can help him. I want to know if Tate will change or if he will just get worse out of spite for Violet's dislike of him.

If you're a watcher of "American Horror Story"let's talk. What do you want to see out of next season?

Coming next week: Review of the new season of "Pretty Little Liars." (I feel like I've been waiting an eternity for this new season).

I Was Enchanted to Smell You

By:Lauren Miller

I am pretty boring when it comes to trying new perfumes. Ever since I saw the girls on Laguna Beach (or was it The Hills) use Daisy by marc Jacobs. It's the perfect mix of flowery, girly, subtle, sexiness. Not too strong, not too light. As the three bears would say this scent is just right.

So I've become very skeptical of other scents. Especially celebrity endorsed scents. I can't help but think of this Hannah Montana episode when thinking of celebrity endorsements.

For Taylor Swift, however, I caved. I stepped out of the marc Jacobs aisle and tried Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift.

There are two things that I really love about this perfume.

1. Packaging. Sure quality of product is super important, especially when considering a beauty product, but in my world there is something to be said for a product that just looks good on a shelf. Let's be honest, if this perfume sucked this bottle would still look super cute in my bathroom. Sure it would be an expensive little decoration, but at least it's not a total loss.

2. Probably the most important part of a fragrance...the scent. Overall the scent is delicious. But what really impressed me with this scent were the end notes. What I've noticed is that when you live hard (working 8 hour days, running from school to internship to concert, etc) and you don't have a lot of time for a reapplication of the fragrance the smell can lessen over time to the point where I can't remember if I actually put anything on. But with Wonderstruck I was STILL smelling fresh and sweet and romantic hours after application. Huge plus in my book.

This was definitely one of those way to be random posts. But I will say that Wonderstruck is an amazing and beautiful perfume. If you're still looking for a gift for a girlfriend, sister, friend, mom, really any female in your life head to your local Macys, Bon Ton, Boscovs, or any related make up retailer and pick up Wonderstruck.

What's your favorite perfume or cologne? Leave me love friends!

Download Now: Put Your Hearts Up By: Ariana Grande

You may know her as Cat from Nick's hit series Victorious, or you may have no idea who she is. Either way Ariana Grande is sure to catch your heart with this super cute song & her first single. The song features some sampling from the 4 Non Blondes song "What's Up."

I've been raving about Ariana's voice for awhile because unlike some tv actors and actresses who sing, this girl really can SING. If you don't believe me check out some of her covers on YouTube and you'll see just how talented this girl really is. In the meantime splurge a little $1.29 on her new single "Put Your Hearts Up." At the very least it's sure to put a smile on your face. :D

A Special Night with Demi Lovato- An A Plus in Comebacks

By: Lauren Miller

Everyone loves a good comeback. There's just something about over coming obstacles and becoming "brand new" that just appeals to most Americans. In this case I am most Americans.

Since the begining I've been rooting for Demi. She honestly is one of the most talented, if not the most talented, females to come out of Disney. For once I wanted a true, natural talent to rise above the Disney stigma and show that there really is talent on Disney.

When she went into Rehab last year I was devestated if only for the fact that she was becoming the average Disney starlet. I had little hope for an actual comeback. I figured she was just a one hit wonder.

With her new tour and album I think Demi has broken that mold.

What I really like about Demi's comeback- and what I think will make it successful- is the fact that she is taking it slow. She dropped Sonny, she's not doing her Target clothing line, right now it's all about the music. And even there she's taking it pretty slow and small. For her tour she choose to only do a handful of dates in very small venues. But these shows still had the impact of a full on tour.

This tour I sprung for the Emerald VIP so I could attend Soundcheck. It was really cool seeing Demi in this personal, laid back setting. She was just walking around stage hugging fans, answering questions, she even let a fan sing with her on stage. So cool. Oh and did I mention the unicorn hat. So funny!

By the time it was show time I was so ready to see what Demi had come up with. During soundcheck the stage looked really plain, so I didn't really know what to expect. 

That was the cool part about her tour and stage set up. She did so much with so little! The costumes were literally the cutest things ever. My favorite were the disco ball motorcyle helmets her dancers wore towards the begining of the show. The simplicity and smallness was almost just what she needed- Demi needed to comeback and prove that she's still the super talented, great girl we knew and loved from the Disney Channel and the fact that she went to rehab shouldn't change our minds about her talent.

I also really appreciated the moment during "Skyscrapper" when the people in my section held up signs that said things like Stay Strong Demi and We Love You Demi. The extreme amount of support the fans showed her that night really showed how strong her bond is with her fans. And in return she offered feelings of love and support back to her fans who may be dealing with situations similar to what she was dealing with when she entered rehab.

This show just really showed me how important it is to have an artist like Demi in pop culture today. She serves as such an awesome role model for young (and older) girls. I'm really glad that she chooses to share her battles with the world because there are serious so many young people out there who are experiencing what she went through. By sharing and trying to help this just shows such an awesome level of maturity in Demi.

I can't wait to see Ms. Demi on tour again- hopefully it will be sooner rather than later.

Exclusive Interview with Ryan of My Girl Friday

Q- What makes My Girl Friday different from every other band out there?

A- I would say the biggest difference is the country "twang" our band is developing.

Q- What song of yours would you recommend to someone who hasn’t listened to your music before?

A- Go listen to "Down By The Water".. It's our brand new single off of our upcoming record, "American Kids".

Q-Where do you get inspiration for the songs?
A- We get inspiration through many different things.. Actual life experiences, a situation people can relate to, other musicians we admire, etc.

Q- What has been your biggest challenge so far as an artist?

A- I would say getting our music out there for people to hear. There's 7 billion people in the world, we want everyone to give us a listen. This is probably a challenge for every artist at some point in their career, haha.

Q- Who is someone you would like to tour with?

A- Well, we love touring with our friends in The Summer Set. But I think I speak for the whole band when I say we would love to tour with Eric Church, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, and other country stars. That would be a blast.

Q- Out of all the songs you've recorded/written which is your favorite?

A- My personal favorite is a song called, "Rolling Stone". It's on our upcoming record that is going to be released at the end of the year. It's a song about traveling and finding out where your real home is. It gets pretty deep, so you'll just have to listen yourself, haha.

Q- What do you hope you’re doing with your music/accomplishing in a year?

A- In a year, we hope to grow tremendously as a band. We would love to be on some beneficial tours and maybe have a full length record out... We have some stuff in the works, so we'll see what happens!

Q- Do you have any advice for someone who wants to pursue a career in music?

A- It's a long and difficult road to travel down but if you really, really love it, don't give up. Your dreams will come true.

Q-If you could change one thing about the music industry today, what would you want to change and why?

A- I would probably change the way that the "politics" sometimes work. I believe, if you're good song writers, good musicians, and people enjoy your music, you should get recognized. I don't think an artist's success should be measured by how much money they have behind them. That's just my opinion though, haha.

Q- What’s something your fans don’t know about you?

A- Oh boy, I don't know. I think fans pretty much know everything about me, haha. That's weird...

Q- When writing a song what comes first the lyrics, the tune..etc?

A- I would say the lyrics usually come first. We get the idea of the song, jot down some words and form a melody. Then we bring in acoustic guitars and write, write, write...

Q- What t-shirt in your closet best describes your personality and why?

A- I don't really have a t-shirt that best describes my personality, but I do have a jean jacket in my closet. And I think it describes my personality because when I put that jean jacket on, my cowboy boots and Levi jeans, I feel right at home... "I should've been a cowboy..."  Toby Keith says it best...

Q- What’s your favorite thing about the holiday season?

A- FOOD!... and family of course... But mainly food...

Q- Any upcoming plans in the works for you we should know about?

A- The biggest thing right now is our new record called, "American Kids" will be released at the end of the year! So stay tuned for that!

Q- What’s your favorite flavor popsicle?

A- Orange. I like orange everything.
