In attendance at the panel were stars Serinda Swan, Ellen Woglom, Anson Mount, and Iwan Rheon, as well as executive producers Scott Buck and Jeph Loeb. At the panel, Serinda, who plays Medusa in the show, defended the wig that she wore in the first previews, which received a lot of criticism. “It’s never been done before,” she said, via The Wrap. “So there’s going to be issues and there’s going to be trials and tribulations. The CGI … there was software that had to be built for it.” “If we only did things that were perfect, we would never start. And so it’s a really phenomenal start,” she continued. “This is still a work in progress… We’re coming down to the wire on some of the special effects.”.....»»

The track is the first music release from the sister-duo – Aly Michalka and AJ Michalka – in ten years. It serves as the lead single from their upcoming EP, which is set to follow later this year. “‘Take Me‘ for us is kind of one of those songs that’s just very honest. It’s not really written about anyone in particular, just the fact that I’ve been going through the dating scene a little bit,” AJ expressed about the song. “Aly is married, but I’ve seen what I’ve gone through in the sense of just trying to meet someone that can be bold enough to take you out and want to get to know you beyond getting to know you on social media. It’s kind of hard to find. At the end of the day, it was one of those frustrations in the studio where it was like, ‘Just take me out already. If you want to get this done and want to get to know each other, you’re going to have to get to know me first.’ It’s an honest depiction toward my dating life, just really saying, ‘If this is what you want, make it happen.’ I think that song is a really honest moment for us.” You can also stream “Take Me” on Spotify and download it on iTunes now!

Aly & AJ Spill on New EP "Ten Years," First Dates & Social Media (Exclusive)

It’s been 10 years since Aly & AJ last released music under their eponymous name but they’re ready for a major comeback! The sister duo shared their new single “Take Me” earlier this summer and are getting ready to debut their EP Ten Years soon! Just Jared recently went behind-the-scenes of Aly & AJ‘s Refinery29 [...] It’s been 10 years since Aly & AJ last released music under their eponymous name but they’re ready for a major comeback! The sister duo shared their new single “Take Me” earlier this summer and are getting ready to debut their EP Ten Years soon! Just Jared recently went behind-the-scenes of Aly & AJ‘s Refinery29 shoot and caught up with them about everything from inspirations to growing up Disney and social media. Here’s what Aly & AJ had to share: JJ: Are there any other major life events in the past ten years that have informed your new music? Aly: I think moving out of our family home, having our parents go through a divorce and then my marriage 2 years ago were all big events that affected this new music. We’ve always been artists that write about personal experiences so it’s something that’s bound to happen when getting into the studio. Click inside to read the rest of our interview with Aly & AJ… JJ: What situations did you find yourself in that served as impetuses for writing your single “Take Me?” Were they guys in real life? Hiding behind dating apps? Aly: Well, I’m married now so it was very much inspired by AJ‘s dating life at the time and some of our girlfriends as well. When we started writing this music back in May of 2016 AJ was newly single and feeling very frustrated about the dating scene in LA, not to mention the dating app she was on at the time called Raya. We kept talking about how these guys just kept beating around the bush. They’d never initiate any sort of set time to get to know one another…..hence the creation of “Take Me.” JJ: Have you found it hard to balance music and acting? Will acting take a backseat now as you concentrate on music? We still love acting. But at this point, it will take a backseat. We’re ready to focus on music and it deserves as much attention as we can give without ignoring acting obligations altogether. We’ll be able to tour during the hiatuses from our shows. JJ: You grew up on the Disney Channel. How did that mold you into who you are today? Aly: It’s funny because everyone sees us as having grown up on the Channel, even though we were really only there for 4 years. I started Phil of the Future when I was 14 and that went on for two years, then I did my first DCOM and then another one around 17 with AJ…the rest were all music videos being played on the channel. Those tween years are very impressionable at that age whether it’s in a negative or positive way, so yeah I’d say they did. But I wouldn’t say they molded us into the artists we are now, if anything they would have stopped our growth if they had the chance to control that. JJ: Would you ever sing “Potential Break Up Song” or “Like Whoa” at a future Aly & AJ concert? They have a combined 100 million page views on YouTube! AJ: I can totally see us singing a song from the past at a concert. I wouldn’t hold your breath when it comes to “Like Whoa” though…that song really drives me and Aly nuts. But for sure Potential…or Rush….or Chemicals. JJ: Can you tease the name of the upcoming EP and/or album title? What’s the next single called and what’s it about? The EP is called Ten Years….because that’s how long it’s been since we’ve released anything under Aly & AJ. We have no idea what the second single would be….but it’s between two songs right now that we really love. Are social media apps helping or hurting people’s chances of finding true love? Has it helped or hurt your dating life? AJ: I don’t think it’s helped or hurt. It’s done nothing in a way. I’d rather meet someone naturally so I’ve given up the idea of dating apps. It really has worked for some people but it’s just not right for me. Fans of ours have actually met through past Aly & AJ Online Forums which is pretty cool. Do you remember where you went out on your first date? AJ: It was in a dumpy bowling alley in the middle of nowhere, we were on tour at the time. Aly: Somewhere in Santa Monica? That’s all I really remember. My mom actually dropped me off cuz I wasn’t old enough yet to drive myself......»»

While many fans were still recovering from Miz Lindsay's decision to send home baby faced Dean, the powerhouse attorney was busy taking her relationships with her final beaus to the next level. How?? By bringing them home to meet her family, of course! Related: BIP's Amanda Stanton Has Found Love Again Now, normally, the bachelorette's family is flown to some exotic location to meet up with the lead and her remaining men. However, the ABC dating competition broke from tradition this time around as Rachel's sister was eight months pregnant at the time of filming and couldn't travel. Thus Peter, Bryan, and Eric packed their bags and flew to Dallas for some quality time with the Lindsays. Unsurprisingly, not EVERYONE made a great impression on Rachel's fam. So let's dig into the hometown visit! As Peter is the frontrunner, it only seemed right that the gap toothed cutie get the first meet and greet with the Lindsays. Peter was VVV eager to spend time with Rachel as he totally dropped the ball in articulating how he feels about her. While shopping for baby gifts for Rachel's sister, Peter gushed to the season 13 lead: "You do mean the world to me. I want you to have so much confidence going into this in us and in me, and know that you're introducing a good person who is here for you. And I am falling in love with you." And he's back in the lead, y'all! The twosome then made their way to Rachel's residence for a hangout with her mom Kathy, her aunt Connie, her uncle Jeff, her sister Constance, and Constance's husband Alex. The Lindsay patriarch was noticeably absent during the family meeting, but he IS a federal judge so he probably opted out of appearing on a trashy reality show. Anywho, Peter's respectful and honest nature won over the Lindsays, especially Kathy. During a chat about Peter's hesitation to propose at the end of all of this, Rachel's mom actually appreciated the businessman's decision to not ask for her blessing. Way to be sincere AF, bb! Eric was next on deck -- and SUPER nervous about meeting Rachel's family. Why?? Well, because it's been six or seven years since the personal trainer has met a girl's family. But before we get into his visit with the Lindsays, let's cut back to the drama at the hotel between Bryan and Peter. Related: Ben Higgins Isn't Ready To Kiss Someone Else! As they're the two frontrunners, it isn't shocking to see that Peter and Bryan have some tension between them. Upon learning that Peter didn't ask Kathy for her blessing to propose to Rachel, Bryan told the Wisconsin native that he'd be doing just that. Peter was rightfully annoyed by this "ballsy" move and candidly told Bryan: "What's awkward is having to sit here with her other boyfriend, knowing that her other boyfriend is home with her family right now. I don't want to be sitting here with you right now, I'm not going to lie." Preach, bro. But, enough of these two, back to Eric... Eric has shocked us all by landing in the final three and, after a rocky start, has become the underdog we're all rooting for. Now, the 29-year-old definitely raised a few eyebrows when he admitted that his longest relationship didn't even hit the year mark. Still, Eric's earnestness seemed to win everyone over and he even snagged Kathy's blessing to propose to Rachel. Awwww. On meeting Eric, momma Lindsay dished: "Today was good. I was pleasantly surprised again at Rachel's choice. I like the fact that Eric appears very honest, and has a desire to get married and raise a family. I can understand why this is going to be a tough decision for her. Eric is still in the game, folks! And for the moment we've been waiting for, Bryan met with the Lindsay clan. We knew the moment Bryan started spitting lines Rachel's protective family would start grilling him. We mean, like we said, the Lindsay patriarch is a FEDERAL JUDGE! Before Bryan was introduced to Rachel's loved ones though, the Miami native met with two of the bachelorette's gal pals. While it may've seemed like Rachel was all about Bryan since day one, the legal expert dished to her friends: "Let's just be real: I thought he was a douchebag. I really did. I was waiting for the charm to [wear] off and he was like: ‘Look, I'm not going to let you mess this up.' " Of course, this comment inspired Bryan to turn up the charm even more. The smooth talking went over well with Rachel's friends, but NOT with the Lindsays. In fact, there was serious tension between the chiropractor and the Lindsay crew from the get go. Kathy even questioned Bryan's loyalties to Rachel after learning about his (seemingly unhealthy) relationship with his mother. Kathy went as far as to force Bryan to admit on camera (TWICE) that he'd pick Rachel's side over his mother's in the instance that the women butted heads. We're sure this gave Bryan's mother a heart attack. The interrogation against Bryan upset Rachel a ton as she told the cameras: "I was very excited to introduce Bryan to my family, but I felt like my excitement wasn't reciprocated by my family. I'm irritated at this point. The energy is totally different than it was the other two days with Peter and Eric." Later, when revealing her love for Bryan to her mother, Kathy shared that she doesn't feel comfortable with this notion. Rachel's sister clearly felt the same way as she questioned Bryan's sincerity. Nonetheless, Bryan came to Dallas to get Rachel's mother's blessing and was NOT leaving the family sit down without it. Reluctantly, Kathy told Bryan: "Because I trust her judgment, you have my blessing to take this initial love. And just build on that." Awkward! After three VERY different visits with the Lindsays, the final suitors were whisked away to La Rioja, Spain. Eric landed the first overnight date and boy did it go over well. Rachel took Eric on helicopter ride around the region even though he hates heights, and it further proved that he'll do anything to win the bachelorette's heart. In typical Bachelorette fashion, the outing ended with some down time and a declaration of love. Related: Rachel Gushes About Her 'Hopeless Romantic' Fiancé! After dancing around the word "love" for awhile, Eric gushed to Rachel: "I don't know if you understand how much you challenge me emotionally, making me feel vulnerable and open — it feels amazing. Everything about this feels right. You embody everything I would want in a wife. Nothing else matters. I'm just here to say that I'm in love with you. I tried to run … but this is it. I'm here. I'm here for you. I'm just a happy man. I've never felt this way about a girl, ever. Rachel Lindsay, I love you." We're not crying, YOU ARE! Rachel rewarded Eric's openness with an invitation to the Fantasy Suite. He said yes, because, duh. Peter had the next overnight date and was taken to a local vineyard for some fun. Yet their date took a serious turn as, later on, Rachel laid into Peter for his reluctance to propose. After sharing that she doesn't believe that getting engaged means they have to rush into marriage, Rachel relayed: "I didn't come this far and put my life on hold and sacrifice everything I had to do this to just have a boyfriend at the end of it — that's not what I want." You tell 'em, girl! Peter wouldn't budge though as he noted that he believes "an engagement is marriage." He added: "I don't want you to give up on what you believe and what you need in your life. We talked about trying to find the common ground — I just don't know what that is with something that is so polar opposite. I don't know how to get through that." *GASP* Understandably, Peter's admission was "absolutely devastating" to Rachel. The reality TV starlet even concluded to the cameras: "I don't know what to do. I was hopeful for what Peter and I could be, and then just like that, I didn't see it. Tonight, for the first time ever, I'm thinking Peter and I might not work out." Will Peter get the boot? Could Eric actually win this thing? We'll just have to wait and see! Don't forget, The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC......»»

Woman Who Lost 350 Pounds Faces Her Worst Fear Of Being Body Shamed While On Vacation — And It Actually Helped Her!

After losing 350 lbs, Jacqueline Adan has triumphed over her issues with food, exercise, and diet — but body image was something she was still struggling with. That was until the 30-year-old decided to face her fears and wear a bathing suit for the first time on vacation in Mexico! Related: Girl Accidentally Shoots Herself While Searching [...] After losing 350 lbs, Jacqueline Adan has triumphed over her issues with food, exercise, and diet -- but body image was something she was still struggling with. That was until the 30-year-old decided to face her fears and wear a bathing suit for the first time on vacation in Mexico! Related: Girl Accidentally Shoots Herself While Searching For Candy The San Francisco resident, who has documented her incredible weight loss journey, took to Instagram this week to share the story of baring her body in public for the first time ever. Adan was admittedly nervous AF at the idea of showing off some skin, and had to give herself a final pep talk. She explained to People: "For a brief moment, I thought to myself, ‘I can't do this. I can't take this cover-up off.' ...It took a lot for me to actually tell myself, ‘It's OK, you are beautiful just the way you are.' " But right after she disrobed, her worst fears came true: a couple nearby started pointing and laughing at her loose skin, and it was mortifying! She recalled: "I did not know if I was going to cry or put my cover-up back on and not go swimming. For a moment I froze. I could not believe how someone could judge me and make fun of me. They had no idea who I was, what I had been through or what I was currently going through." In the past, Adan says she would have allowed the remarks to ruin her vacation and "probably would not have gone to the beach or pool again." But after working her ass off -- literally! -- for the past three years, Adan realized she had every right to strut in the water like it was nobody's business. She continued: "That's when it hit me … they have no idea about my weight loss, so why am I going to let their opinions affect me? How I feel about myself is what matters. And so that's exactly why I smiled at them and jumped into the pool!" AH-Mazing! Read her post (below) to get the full story! When we were on vacation in Mexico a few weeks ago, it was the first time I had worn a bathing suit in a long time, and it had been even longer since I wore a bathing suit without a cover up. I was nervous to take my cover up off and to walk into the pool or walk on the beach. I still felt like that same 500 pound girl...then it happened. A couple sitting by the pool started laughing and pointing at me and making fun of me as soon as I took my cover up off. So what did I do? I took a deep breath, smiled and walked into the pool. That was a huge moment for me. I had changed. I was not the same girl anymore. Yes I still have a lot of loose skin, I may still feel insecure at times, and yes I may still get made fun of. To be honest, yes it bothered me. But I was not going to let people like that affect me anymore! I am not going to let what other people think of me stop me from living my life. They do not know me. They do not know how I have worked my ass off to lose 350 pounds. They do not know how I am recovering from major surgeries. They have no right to sit and point and laugh at me. That's why I smiled. It does not matter what others say or if they try to doubt you or try to bring you down. What matters is how you react to it. How you feel about yourself. Loving yourself just the way you are is hard. Others might not like that. That's ok. I hope you love yourself. Love your body. I hope you keep doing you and just keep smiling! . . . . . #jacquelineadan #jacquelinesjourney #effyourbeautystandards #selfloveclub #selflove #lovemybody #lovemyshape #loveyourself #teamself #extremeweightloss #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #wlstories #onaquest #bodybuildingcom #bodypositive #bodyconfidence #bodyposi #transformationfitnation #motivationmonday #mondaymotivation #fitfam #fitspo #bodytransformation #igtransformations #transformationjourneyA post shared by Jacqueline⬇️300lbDiet&Exercise (@jacquelineadan44) on Sep 18, 2017 at 5:37pm PDT [Image via Jacqueline Adan/Instagram.].....»»
