Celebrity Grammar Police

Posted by at 1:34 am in Celebrities, Trivia | Permalink

trivia_quiz1Can you spot the celebrity grammar mistakes?

You know I love the celebrities we get to profile on the STACKS, but I have to reveal a sad truth. While they are all talented and beautiful, they do not always use perfect grammar and spelling when they write to their fans on social media. Shocking, I know, but YOU can help them. Please look at the following sentences and correct the mistakes. They will probably be really grateful for your corrections.

  1. Austin Mahone: GUESS WHERE IM GOING TOMORROW!!!
  2. Peyton List: Every time I make an ugly face on Jessie I think about how many people are going to screenshot it and make it their profile pic
  3. Leo Howard: Hey everyone did you see last nights Kickin it. Haha love that episode!
  4. Jake Short: It honestly feels like it’s Saturday. My days are so nixed up. (Sonja: It was actually hard to find a mistake from Jake Short. His grammar is really very good!)
  5. Harry Styles: Thank you so much to everyone who bought the album, you’re incredible. And we are nothing without you, I am very very happy today .x
  6. Olivia Holt: blessings show up in many different forms. don’t ever second guess God’s reasoning.
  7. Taylor Swift: I LOVE YOU GUYS WE GOT AN ALBUM OF THE YEAR NOMINATION AND I AM TOO EXCITED TO USE PUNCTUATION (Sonja: At least she knows she made a mistake.)
  8. Mindless Behavior: what did you guys think of our new video from the airport? what can we say we love to dance LOL!!
  9. Karan Brar: Everyone has problems. Some peoples problems are more messed up than others, but don’t judge a person based on their problems.
  10. Ross Lynch: 2014 here I come.

I tried to find a mistake from Dove Cameron but I couldn’t. Her grammar is impeccable! Did you spot the mistakes in all these sentences? Leave the corrected sentences in the Comments and then check your answers.

Dylan Riley Snyder Interview

Posted by at 1:18 am in Celebrities | Permalink

Are you a fan of Kickin’ It? Well, have we got a treat for you! We were lucky enough to get an interview with Dylan Riley Snyder, who plays Milton on the show. We talked about karate, his character, what kind of pet he wants, and more. Check it out!

Q: Let’s talk about your character, Milton.

Dylan: My character is probably the most well-meaning character on the show, but every time he tries to do something he gets shot down. It drives him more than a little wild. But it’s fun.

Q: Do you guys take karate lessons?

Dylan: Leo [Howard] does karate. I don’t do karate, but we take classes. The instructors are always on set and we learn the moves on set, mostly basic kicks and punches that we learn and piece together into a fight sequence.

Q: If you could have any pet in the world, what pet would you choose?

Dylan: I would have a fox—a red fox. I think they are beautiful! I think it would be great to show up at a party with a fox on a leash. Or I’d pick a Savannah cat…they’re the cats that look like cheetahs. But I’m allergic to cats!

Q: What’s something about you that most people don’t know?

Dylan: I like science a lot. I like looking at things in different ways, solving puzzles, and doing things with my hands…fixing stuff.

Q: What should people do to make the world a better place?

Dylan: Take a look in the mirror and fix what you can. Think about how you can make the people around you happy! And speak up! The world would be a much better place if more people would say what makes them happy.

Be sure to also check out Dylan’s book recommendation video for the STACKS, and catch our interviews with his castmates Leo Howard and Olivia Holt!

Interview with Karan Brar from Jessie

Posted by at 1:02 am in Celebrities | Permalink

Karan BrarDon’t you love Ravi?

I mean, who doesn’t? On the show, Jessie, Karan plays Ravi, one of Jessie’s four charges. In real life, Karan is super-sweet and cool. Last year, he even came by to answer fans’ questions. We caught up with him again to see what he’s been up to since our last interview, what he likes about Ravi, what kind of pet he wants to have, and more. Check it out!

Q: What do you like about your character Ravi?
Karan: I love that he is really bright-eyed. He’s so new to the country. Well, I shouldn’t say new, since it’s been 3 years. But he is so bright-eyed and he looks at the world so hopefully, which is so cool.

Q: How do you like acting with Mrs. Kipling (a 7-foot Asian water monitor)?
Karan: It’s really cool. I love it. Having an animal on set is pretty awesome.

Q: Was it strange in the beginning working with such a big lizard? Was it scary?
Karan: Yes, definitely. I was really creeped out! It was really weird.

Q: Water monitors are not really man-eating, are they?
Karan: I think they eat meat!

Q: What is the best book you ever read?
Karan: The Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. I acted in those films and love the books even more. They mean so much to me and I love them.

Q: So what is the most unusual talent you have that most people don’t know about?
Karan: I can do this weird thing with my thumb. It’s, like, double-jointed. It’s really weird that I can do this weird motion with it.

Q: If you could have any one pet in the world, what would it be?
Karan:  A zebra. Zebras are awesome.

Q: What was your favorite TV show growing up?
Karan: SpongeBob SquarePants! I love it still.

Isn’t Karan the nicest guy? We certainly think so! Share your thoughts in the Comments section below. Be sure to check out our earlier interview with Karan, and don’t forget to read our other interviews with Karan’s cast members Debby Ryan, Cameron Boyce, and Peyton List!

The STACKS got our hands on this EXCLUSIVE photo from tonight’s episode, AND this exclusive Q&A with a few of the stars!

Q: If you weren’t an actor and could be anything in the world, what would you be?
Peyton List: 
I would be a set designer. I’m adventurous, inquisitive, and curious. I have a very creative and imaginative mind. I love to conceptualize a certain theme in my head and work towards bringing that idea to life.
Skai Jackson: I would be a fashion designer because I love creating new looks and also making clothes. It’s my passion.
Karan Brar: If I wasn’t an actor and I could be anything in the world I would probably be a baker! I know it sounds kind of odd but I have a big sweet tooth and I love cake!
Cameron Boyce: If I could be anything, I’d be a Los Angeles Laker. I’ve loved basketball and especially the Lakers my whole life. I’ve actually played on the floor at Staples Center for a charity celebrity game. I couldn’t stop talking about it afterwards. I’m 15 years old and I still play in my driveway and shoot before the clock in my head runs out.

Will you be watching the new episode of Jessie tonight? Leave a comment!

MKTO Interview

MKTOInterview with pop duo MKTO!

I have to admit I’m a little late jumping aboard the MKTO train. But now I am SUCH a fan. They’re awesome! I’ve been listening to “Classic” on repeat nonstop for the past three days. I think I might have a problem!

Anyway, MKTO is comprised of Malcolm Kelley and Tony Oller, who met on the set of the TV show Gigantic. After playing best friends on the show, they became real-life friends and realized that they wanted to make music together. Their debut album dropped earlier this year and it is GREAT!

MKTO has opened for Emblem3 and they are now embarking on their first headlining tour. Catch our super-exclusive interview here! Continue reading

Goosebumps: The Movie

PopcornJack Black Will Star in the New Goosebumps Movie!

Way back when I was younger, there was a TV show based on the Goosebumps series. I remember the first episode I ever saw (“Stay Out of the Basement”) and I remember being totally scared! But I loved it, too. I’ve since seen nearly every episode, and they’re all great. I was really sad when the show ended. So that’s why I was very, very excited when I found out that my favorite spooky series is being turned into a movie! And you’ll never guess who the star is . . . Continue reading
