Sometimes things get a little intimate with my interview subjects, as was the case recently when Lindsey Morgan, star of The CW’s “The 100,” stopped by the Young Hollywood couch. See below for back rubs and talk about bad-ass Raven Reyes.
Maybe it’s age, maybe it’s the weather (El Nino, what’s up?), but I find that I don’t tackle the beginnings of the year anymore as much as I just ease into them. And helping me do that in 2016 are my latest segments for Young Hollywood and byline for espnW, the latter of which I had a candid conversation with three-time WSL World Champion Carissa Moore.
The 23-year-old revealed to me her struggle with binge-eating and how she never makes it onto those “hottest surfer girl lists” — but doesn’t care. I’ve had the privilege of covering professional female surfers a few times now, and with each story and interview, my passion for the women’s contest only grows, not just because these young women live a lifestyle that a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of the world’s population gets to (jetsetting to surf the world’s best waves in the most beautiful locations on the planet), but because the sport itself requires a lot of body confidence to participate in. When your uniform is a skintight jersey or bikini briefs, your body issues can be, for lack of a better word, laid bare. How these young women carry themselves in and out of the water is something I hope all young women — surfers or not — can look to and be inspired by.
Below, I also got to talk to some of the people behind my fondest pop culture memories from elementary school through college, including Jermaine Dupri, Nas and Kel Mitchell (Nickelodeon’s “All That”) for Young Hollywood. Happy new year, everyone!
What a busy couple of weeks! I nabbed my first byline in The Atlantic, interviewed a hybrid vampire/werewolf AND used The Force (yes, THAT Force; see below). It’s around this time of year when Hollywood, and the world, shuts down. I personally start thinking about the year that has passed and the year ahead; I’m really looking forward to that contemplative time where things are just a little quiet.
But in the meantime, enjoy my latest for Young Hollywood at the Target & Star Wars Galactic Experience in downtown LA.
One of the funniest and most impressive sets I’ve been on as of late! I shoplift, er, shop with the cast of NBC’s mid-season sitcom “Superstore” for Young Hollywood. Check out the video below.
Join the #Rebelution. Actress and comedian Rebel Wilson is launching her Aussie-urban-inspired capsule collection with plus-size retailer, Torrid! Below, Wilson tells me who inspired her as she designed and why she’s so, uh, humble.
In anticipation of tonight’s premiere of “American Horror Story: Hotel,” the sixth season of the hit anthology series, I hit the red carpet of an advanced screening to find out why this season might be the scariest, sexiest and most heartfelt one yet. Maybe it has something to do with Lady Gaga starring in it? Watch below.
