  • Ever Felt Awkward at a Party? Alessia Cara Can Relate.

    Posted on 08/27/2015 by TeenNickBlogger

    Alessia Cara

    We all love a good party anthem, there's no doubt about that. But have you ever been in a social situation where you're just like, "Ugh. This is weird. This is awkward. GTG ASAP."

    Yeah. Us, too.

    For all those times you've wondered, "What if I don't want to be the life of the party tonight? Is that cool?" Yes. It totally is. And 19 year-old Canadian singer-songwriter Alessia Cara will be the first to tell you that.

    If you haven't heard Alessia's new single "Here", check it out (~here~ lol). It's an anthem for the introvert, an ode to all those people who'd rather be kickin' it with their friends and talking about their big dreams than rolling deep to a party.

    Can you dig? We can.

    This star-on-the-rise is poised for really big things. Alessia is a teen with a huge voice (seriously, her pipes are unreal) and an even bigger message. And we are so stoked because she is stopping by TeenNick Top 10 TONIGHT at 9pm to chat about her new music! You don't want to miss it!

    In the meantime, take a moment to appreciate the epic realness of this Instagram:

    home for a day means tragic outifts

    9pm. Tonight. See you then!

  • You'll Never Believe the Story Behind Kaya Stewart's Hit Single 'In Love with a Boy'

    Posted on 08/19/2015 by TeenNickBlogger


    Fresh Artist Kaya Stewart


    Picture this: You didn't study for your math test and you're already anticipating the consequences. A less-than-stellar grade will most likely result in a stern talking-to from the 'rents and you'll think to yourself... "I have got to keep those YouTube benders in check." The struggle is real, we get it.

    But for TeenNick Top 10 Fresh Artist Kaya Stewart, that wasn't exactly the case.

    By now, you've probably heard Kaya's stomping hit single "In Love With A Boy." What you maybe don't know is that she wrote that song on the back of a math test she knew she wasn't going to ace. And according to Billboard, the very boy in the song was in her middle school math class!



    Now, we can't promise you'll be able to make beautiful music out of questionable study skills, but we can promise you a super-exciting appearance from Kaya Stewart on TeenNick Top 10 TONIGHT! You'll hear more about her upcoming music and you also get to check out her killer combat boots. Boom. You're welcome.

    9PM is where it's at, y'all!

  • 5 Reasons We Want to be BFF With Fresh Artist Kelsea Ballerini

    Posted on 08/13/2015 by TeenNickBlogger

    Chances are, you've heard the super-sweet and totally infectious country stylings of our TeenNick Top 10 Fresh Artist, Kelsea Ballerini. Her hit "Love Me Like You Mean It" has already topped Billboard's country airplay songs charts, and her new single "Dibs" is taking over country radio as we speak. If you haven't heard these tunes, be warned, they WILL get stuck in your head.

    To celebrate Kelsea's place on our impressive Fresh Artist roster (hello, alumns include 5 Seconds of Summer, Fifth Harmony and Shawn Mendes) and our general obsession with her, we rounded up 5 reasons we want to be her BFF, like, yesterday.

    1. Her idea of a good time = good food + good people. I mean, where do we sign up?



    2. Her dog, Josh (named after country singer Josh Turner), will paralyze you with his cuteness. HE'S SO FLUFFY.

    missin my pups this morning. HE'S SO FLUFFY. #joshthedog

    3. She freaks out just as much as we do when it comes to Nick Jonas.

    my 13 year old self really just lost all chill. #ACMawards50

    4. She worked really hard to get where she is today and she didn't give up even when she hit a few roadblocks. If you're interested in stars' path to success, check out this awesome video in which Kelsea talks about her journey.



    5. This is how she celebrated her first #1. We didn't think it was possible to love Kelsea more, but this girl is going to do big things.



    Catch Kelsea on TeenNickTop 10 TONIGHT at 9pm!

  • Top 10 Fiercest Fifth Harmony Lyrics

    Posted on 02/20/2015 by TeenNickBlogger

    If there's one thing we love about Fifth Harmony (excluding the obvious and undeniable: their pipes, their moves, their hair...), it's that they sing songs about the power of sisterhood and being fiercely feminist. We thought it only fitting to celebrate their success by rounding up the top ten fiercest lyrics from their latest album, Reflection!

  • Five Times Taylor Swift's 'Style' Music Video Made Us Buckle Our Knees

    Posted on 02/13/2015 by TeenNickBlogger

    Swifties, REJOICE! Taylor Swift just released her brand-new video for "Style" today and it is B-E-A-UTIFUL. The video's release falls on Friday, the 13th -- which is no coincidence, since 13 is Tay's lucky number -- but the only thing truly freaky about it all is how much #RIPME is currently going on in our minds and bodies.

    We all know who reportedly inspired the third single off of 1989 (coughHarryStylescough... do we really need to say it?), but by the looks of this visually breathtaking clip, we are much more concerned with the fact that Taylor has somehow outdone herself. This might be our favorite video yet, and here are five reasons why.

    TWO PAPER AIRPLANES FLYING

    Style

    Thank you, Taylor, for this clue of all clues. The paper airplane allusion first appeared in "Out of the Woods" supposedly as a reference to a necklace that she and Harry shared. Now, she straight-up placed said necklace in her music video. *Praise hands*

    RED LIP, CLASSIC THING THAT YOU LIKE

    Style


    Since it's a central theme in the song's lyrics, it comes as no surprise that Tay's signature red lip makes multiple appearances in the video. But does anyone else think this image of her in wayfarer sunglasses hearkens back to the Red era? When she and Harry first met? Too much of stretch? Never.

    DAYDREAM LOOK IN YOUR EYES

    Style

    In case you didn't know, the leading man in this vid is English actor, Dominic Sherwood. If you look closely as he smolders into the camera, you can see that he has two different colored eyes. O_O Yep. Now we think she's just actively trying to make us lose it.

    AND WHEN WE GO CRASHING DOWN...

    Style

    In one of the video's stunning visual effects, Taylor raises her hands in front of her face, just as her the man's reflection appears. We're going to guess this creative decision was made because he is her and she is him and everything is one thing.

    ...WE COME BACK EVERY TIME

    Style

    Taylor Alison Swift. Go ahead and twirl into the abyss as the silhouette of your love interest appears on a sunset-laden beach. Just go ahead. You've already managed to make us flat-line and come back to life all at once! Truly, this video is everything we hoped it would be.

    But enough of from us! What did you think? Did you have a favorite moment from Taylor's new video? Let us know in the comments!
