Me & Brie Back In The Day Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 11.45.26 PMI was a little chunkier, but I had a whole lot more hair, too, boo-hoo!

I can't brag about my talents in many areas, but one area in which I know I am gifted: I can spot a star a mile away. Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 10.53.02 PM

Back in the day, when I was editing a teen magazine that I founded, I covered Zac Efron, the Jonas Brothers, Hilary Duff and many more first-first-first. (We were actually too early, so in that regard, my special skill was detrimental in the area of selling magazines!) You can read a bit about that phase of my life in my book, Starf*cker.

In this video, I show up talking about Brie Larson, who I knew was on the verge of breaking through. A dozen (ha) short years later, she's winning Golden Globes. (Image by Rena Durham)

Keep reading to watch her as she enthuses about The O.C. and about making music that's a combo of P!nk and Michelle Branch ...

Recording Artist Simon Curtis: Surprise Album TONIGHT, Debut Novel In November! Comments (0)

Unnamed

He's been hinting for a while now about big things to come. Now, big things have come for out artist Simon Curtis. Unnamed-3

Following up on his truly innovative pop album 8Bit Heart (2010), he is dropping a sequel tonight called Super 8Bit Heart. The album, available at midnight tonight, is $9.99 or .99 per song.

Even more exciting, Curtis's thematically related debut YA novel Boy Robot has just been announced. The book, the first in a trilogy about synthetic-cell teens with special powers battling the government that created them, will be published in November 2016 by Simon Pulse.

In a release, Curtis said:

I’m excited to finally share this book after starting to tell the story years ago in my first album. I’ve always made music for people who feel like outsiders, and I’m thrilled to say Boy Robot continues that narrative in a big way.

More on Simon Curtis here.
