June 15, 2010 at 10:00AM by Lauren Brown |

Secret Diary of Ashley Juergens

If you watch The Secret Life of the American Teenager then you know that the one character on the show that has the scoop is the precocious Ashley Juergens. We've seen her writing away in her journal on the show and now you can read it yourself — and you know it's gonna be good. After all, Ashley was the one that figured out her big sister Amy got pregnant at band camp way before anyone else and even made the shocking discovery that her parents were separating. In her diary, out in stores this week, Ashley drops major bits of new info like how she discovered her sister was preggers, what she really thinks about Amy's friends, and her true feelings for Ricky.

Read Ashley's diary at your own risk and let us know what you think! Are you watching The Secret Life of the American Teenager every Monday night at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family? What are you most excited to read about in Ashley's diary?

Xoxo,

Les Grossman Gets His Own Movie Deal!

June 10, 2010 at 1:00PM by Lauren Brown |

Tom Cruise as Les Grossman

So, did you watch the 2010 MTV Movie Awards? Yes, we know that Team Edward, Team Jacob, and Justin Bieber all made swoon-worthy cameos. But let's get real — the best part of the night was every appearance by the legendary, foul-mouthed, tell-it-like-it-is show producer Les Grossman. We loved him in Tropic Thunder and he's currently taking credit for Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner's impressive careers. But, we can't forget how he upped the ante at the awards on Sunday night with a hot dance number featuring Jennifer Lopez and Ludacris. So, we're psyched about the news that came straight out of Hollywood last night. The life story of Les Grossman is being turned into a movie by Paramount Pictures and MTV Films!

Tom Cruise, along with Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld of Red Hour Films will produce and have secured the life rights to Grossman. Said Ben Stiller: "Les Grossman's life story is an inspiring tale of the classic human struggle to achieve greatness against all odds. He has assured me he plans to quote, 'F**king kill the sh*t out of this movie and make Citizen f**king Kane look like a piece of crap home movie by the time we are done.' I am honored to be working with him."

When asked what the screenplay was about Grossman responded: "To quote my great friend Kirk Lazarus, 'I don't read the script, the script reads me.'"

Whatever the script is about, we don't care because we know it's going to be absolutely hilarious! All hail Tom Cruise — you guys know that it's Tom underneath Les' fat suit, right?

Xoxo,

Lauren

CG! Catches Up with Rooney!

June 8, 2010 at 12:13PM by Robin Monheit |

rooney

We're totally obsessed with Rooney's new video I Can't Get Enough, the first single off the Los Angeles power-pop quartet's new album Eureka — out TODAY. It's a little bit So You Think You Can Dance goes to the roller rink, a little bit trippy Saturday morning cartoons and a little '80s aerobic work-out video. It makes us want to strap on our roller-skates and party like it's our 9th birthday all over again.

We caught up with lead singer Robert Schwartzman and keyboardist Louie Stephens to talk about the new album, out-tweeting Ashton Kutcher and what it was like to go to high school with Spencer Pratt. (Um, eek!)

CosmoGirl: So we hear you made your new album Eureka in your house?

Robert Schwartzman: Yeah, it was really fun. It was definitely a new experience for us. We were all forced to be in a room and focus. The hardest part was picking songs and having to be critical of our own stuff. You have to be like, 'OK, I see why this doesn't work.'

CG: Were there any fights with four dudes, cooped up in a tiny studio together?

RS: The problem is there's no bad guy to help make the process easier. If someone said something that was against what the others wanted, they had to take the hit. There was a song called The Hunch and a song called Wild One that drummer Ned [Brower] and guitarist Taylor [Locke] wrote. Ned sang them — and there was a little bit of disagreement on which song stood out the most. At the end of the day one of them was on the EP and one was on the record.

CG: How do you stay upbeat about everything, when it gets hard and people are fighting?

Louie Stephens: The thing you have to do sometimes, that's really hard, is be honest with each other, even though it's not pretty. You're going to have to let it all out, put it all on the table. And then it actually makes things easier. You've got to say what you have to say.

CG: So are you guys into Twitter and Facebook stuff? Is that really you guys on there?

RS: Yes! I got Twitter crazy the other day. I was on a flight with Internet and we had three hours to go and I didn't have anything to do so I just started tweeting and I couldn't stop. I wouldn't be surprised if people hit 'unfollow.' I might have outtweeted Ashton Kutcher that day.

CG: Do you reply to fans?

RS: I always reply! I've been streaming on Ustream and answering questions via Twitter. A lot of people ask 'Do you know so and so?' Like, 'Do you know Joe Jonas?'

CG: Wait, but do you?

RS: Yeah, we do. I see Joe Jonas quite a bit. I live right next door to their backing band. And Demi [Lovato], of course. She's a minx!

CG: Who else is in your crew in L.A.?

LS: He's not in our crew, but I went to high school with Spencer Pratt. Everyone said the same thing that the public said about him in high school, before the show. Spencer is a villain. He got his eyelashes tinted when we were in high school. He's the first person I've ever known to do that. He did it to accentuate his eyes.

CG: You're on tour all summer...we want to know: Who's the one who doesn't shower?

RS: I can tell you who DOES shower. The drummer showers three times a day. He can't sleep unless he showers after every show. If there's no shower, he'll take water bottles and stand in a bucket, because he just has to get clean. He probably thinks it's awesome that he does it.

On that note, catch Rooney on tour this summer, with the Young Veins and Black Gold in June and July, and with Hanson starting July 21. You can get ALL the details by heading to Rooney’s official Website.

Taylor Lautner

The 2010 MTV Movie Awards are airing this Sunday, June 6th at 9 p.m. ET and we can't wait. The cast of Twilight is scheduled to present and are nominated for tons of awards. And for those of you on Team Jacob, you'll be happy to know that Taylor Lautner is nominated for Best Male Performance as well as Global Superstar. So, we thought you'd get a kick out of this video where Taylor tries to get out of attending the awards so he can be at his best friend's wedding — expect Hollywood Mega Mogul and MTV Movie Awards producer Les Grossman (who you may recognize from the Ben Stiller comedy Tropic Thunder) isn't hearing of it! Enjoy!

What did you think about this video? What are you most looking forward to on the MTV Movie Awards?

Have you checked out the pop/country band Sons of Sylvia yet? They were on American Idol just a few short weeks ago and they are on tour all summer long with Carrie Underwood. We got to hang out with Ashley, Austin, and Adam (they're brothers who named the band after their mom!) recently and we were blown away by how humble, cute and of course, talented they are! Their debut album Revelation is out now and we are loving their first single "Love Left to Lose." Check out this behind-the-scenes look at the making of the video!

Paula Abdul Lands New TV Show!

May 25, 2010 at 9:00AM by Kayla Hutzler |

Paula Abdul

American Idol has been okay without Paula Abdul but we do miss her! No need to fret anymore because soon Paula will be back in the judge's chair on a brand new reality show. But instead of singing, Paula is going back to her roots and judge dance moves!

CBS has appointed Paula as executive producer, creative partner and lead judge of GOT TO DANCE. The new show, set to debut in early 2011, is based on a hit British reality competition and will showcase all forms of dance from tap to tango, group or solo, featuring all age groups.

In addition to producing and judging, Paula will coach, guide and provide critical input to all contestants. Phew — needless to say, she's got a lot to keep her busy! "I've spent the better part of my life teaching, mentoring, nurturing — working with so many talented people — and I consider myself truly blessed to be able to continue to do something that I hold so dear to my heart," said Abdul.

Well, we're excited that Paula will be back on TV! What do you think of this new show? Do you wish that she was still on American Idol?

Xoxo,

Kayla
