We got to sit down with the talented, Chris Rene. You probably recognize him from taking third place on the first season of X-Factor USA.

Chris tells us in great detail what he would do with Robert Downey, Jr. if he kidnapped him, sings “Prince Ali” from the Aladdin soundtrack and shows us a random thing about himself that most people would call a superpower. Watch it all in the video above.

We had a quick chat with Matthew Lillard about his new film, Fat Kid Rules The World which marks his directorial debut. He tells us who the scene stealer is and what makes this movie different from others. If you enjoyed him in SLC Punk! then you will want to check out this punk rock movie.
I first saw Midnight Red perform at City Walk LA with Carly Rae Jepsen and instantly became a fan. I got the chance to sit down with Eric Secharia, Anthony Ladao, Colton Rudloff, Thomas Augusto, and Joey Diggs, Jr. and discuss some pressing questions. The guys discuss which celeb they would fangirl over, what song in music history they wish they had written, their best pick up line, deets on their upcoming debut album and more in the video above. Normally with interviews we post only a few clips, but with Midnight Red we had to post more because they are just that cool. Their music is addicting and the guys themselves are so much fun. Check them out and you can thank me later. Grab their single, “Hell Yeah” on iTunes here.
Check out our interview with rock band, Electric Touch. We posted their video for “Don’t Stop” not too long ago and have been in love ever since.
