One of our absolute favorite bands EVER, Jukebox the Ghost, currently has an EXCLUSIVE acoustic video on TeenVogue.com! The Indie rock three-piece bandmates met in college at George Washington University in 2003 and started a band. Tommy Siegel, Ben Thornewill and Jesse Kristin took a break for awhile and got back together to form what is now Jukebox the Ghost, a couple years later. In 2008 they released their first of three albums, “Let Live & Let Ghosts.” JTG now has three full albums, has lived and made music in Philadelphia, PA and is now settled in Brooklyn, NY. Their last album, “Safe Travels,” was released in June 2012 and features a SUPER fun song called “Oh, Emily.” The band did an exclusive acoustic video of the song JUST for Teen Vogue fans! Check it out below!
SO fun! Wondering what the regular version, non-acoustic, sounds like? Well you’re in luck, because Tommy, Ben and Jesse just released their official video for “Oh, Emily” last week! Watch it below and see which version you like better!
Now that you’ve seen both versions of the song, which do you think you like better? Will you check out Jukebox the Ghost’s albums on iTunes? Are you already adding their catchy dance songs to your summer playlist?

We won’t do the recap for ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” so soon, just in case you didn’t see the AMAZING summer premiere yet, but maybe we can do a tiny sneak peek! As always, the foursome of liars (though this season, it may have five members- you’ll have to watch to find out!) was knee deep in drama, but during the premiere there were a bunch of little girls who seemed to look eerily familiar! We want to know which Mini Little Liar looks most like her Pretty Little Liar? You decide who is the best look-alike!

We’ve had a lot of great laughs over the years at Disney’s show “Good Luck Charlie” featuring Bridgit Mendler, but sadly the show isn’t returning next season! Bridgit had a feeling it was coming, and said in a statement earlier this year
“This season is the last season of Good Luck Charlie as far as I understand, so we’re [the cast] are just going to make the most of it and work on it until the end of the summer.”
Disney is sad too, but the end is still near. A rep for the channel said,
“On behalf of everyone at Disney Channel, it’s been our great pleasure to work with the extraordinary producers Phil Baker, Drew Vaupen and Dan Staley and the writers and crew of “Good Luck Charlie.” We could not have dreamt of a better cast than Bridgit Mendler, Jason Dolley, Leigh-Allyn Baker, Bradley Steven Perry, Mia Talerico and Eric Allan Kramer (and even little Logan Moreau as Baby Toby!) and the many guest stars who make the series so special.”
We wish we didn’t have to see you go, “Good Luck Charlie,” but thank you for always making us laugh and keeping us entertained for hours with your wonderful cast!
What was your favorite “Good Luck Charlie” episode? What will you miss about the show? What do you think will happen to Bridgit Mendler when the show is over?

You may remember her from her days on “The Hills,” but Lauren Conrad has been a busy girl since leaving the show! She started her own clothing line awhile back and is totally on fire! As of June 18th, you will see her face on newsstands as she is the cover girl for the new July issue of “Marie Claire” magazine. The fashion designer spilled to “Marie Claire” about her boyfriend William Tell, writing, and how she loves to live life without drama!
She loves her BF, Will,
“He is very good for me because we have a lot in common as far as where we grew up. It’s the first time I’m with someone and I’m not explaining things. He also has experience in the entertainment industry, so he understands a lot of things that people don’t always get.”
She wants to write because,
“I only ever got to tell half of my story. People are very quick to judge these days, especially behind the anonymity of a screen name. It’s very easy to say, ‘I hate her, I hate what she wore, she seems mean.’ But you’re only seeing a small fraction of her life.”
Lauren avoids drama at all costs!
“There is always gonna be a little bit of…negativity, which just comes with the territory. You realize it doesn’t matter. It’s so simple, but it’s a very hard lesson to learn. At the end of the day, it doesn’t really affect you in any way.”
Want to learn more about Lauren Conrad’s life and fashion? You’ll have to wait til June 18th to pick up a copy of the July issue of “Marie Claire!”
Will you buy the July edition of “Marie Claire”? What else do you want to learn about Lauren Conrad? Do you like her fashion style?

You know how excited we were for the ABC Family “Switched at Birth” summer premiere to get here, and it was totally just as great as we thought it would be! If you haven’t had a chance to watch the new episode from yesterday, June 10th, then you should probably stop reading now! We don’t want to spoil anything for you!
First, we were surprised to see Regina (Constance Marie) come home so soon. No sooner was she back at the Kennish’s house, that she and John (D. W. Moffett) and Kathryn (Lea Thompson) began arguing. It seems that’s just about all they ever do anymore! Regina decides she can’t be around the family anymore, and takes off to Angelo’s house against Daphne’s wishes. Bay finds out later and goes over to see her. Will she end up staying away, too?
Toby (Lucas Grabeel) and Nikki (Cassi Thomson) seem to be thrilled to be together again after her trip to Peru, but Nikki isn’t too happy with the rehearsal dinner plans Kathryn has in store for their wedding. Kathryn doesn’t want to let Toby go just yet and she’s making it quite clear!
Travis (Ryan Lane) meets a couple girls at the carwash that want to learn sign language and seem to like him a lot, so he invites them back to Emmett’s (Sean Berdy) house to hang out! Emmett’s mom is away and when she returns to find strangers in her house she doesn’t know what to do!
Bay (Vanessa Marano) only lasted a day and a half at her dad’s office. She couldn’t stand Daphne (Katie Leclerc) telling her what to do, and she still hasn’t forgiven her for the whole Noah incident. While Bay is supposed to be out buying pastries for a big important meeting at her dad’s office, her car breaks down. She tells the tow truck to take their time getting to her because she really just wants a break from working. She ends up wandering in “Maui,” an amusement park that is open every summer. She’s playing a shooting game and getting pointers from a stranger behind her. When she finishes the game she turns around to find Ty (Blair Redford) standing behind her! While catching up with Ty, she lets on how much she hates working at her Dad’s office. He suggests she apply for a job at “Maui” and by the end of the episode, Bay has a new summer job!
It was a really great episode with a ton of twists and lots going on, and we already can’t wait til next week! Here is a short preview of the upcoming episode at Bay’s new job at “Maui!”
What did you think of the Summer Premiere of “Switched at Birth” on ABC Family? What else do you think will happen this season? Would you ever work at a place like “Maui”?

The Capital FM Summertime Ball was on Sunday, June 9th at Wembley Stadium in London. Amongst the line-up of star artists were Robbie Williams, Union J, The Wanted, Jessie J and Taylor Swift! We knew Taylor had a surprise up her sleeve before the ball began when she told Capital in an interview,
“Well they wouldn’t be surprises if I told you about them! But I will try to pull out like one or two cool surprises. Like I don’t want to overload you guys but there will be some things, we have some things up our sleeve.”
When Taylor surprises her fans, she really surprises them! As she was about to perform her song “Everything Has Changed,” Ed Sheeran joined her on stage! Taylor shared,
“Thanks @edsheeran for surprising the crowd and coming out to sing ‘Everything Has Changed’. Everyone went INSANE. #CapitalSTB”
It was so exciting to see Ed and Taylor perform together- they really make a great team! And if Ed showing up on stage wasn’t thrilling enough, the fireworks display at the end of Taylor’s performance certainly was!
As you can see from the photo on the top of this blog, Taylor had a ball at the ball! She posed for a picture with Ed Sheeran and Jordan from RizzleKicks, and tweeted,
“21, 23, 22. So on average, 22. @RizzleKicks @edsheeran backstage in London.”
Did you see the Capital FM Summertime Ball in London? What do you think of Taylor Swift’s surprise performance with Ed Sheeran?

The Tony Awards are a night to recognize the best and brightest in the world of live theatre. The 2013 awards show was on Sunday, June 9th in NYC at Radio City Music Hall, and were hosted by the super fun Neil Patrick Harris! He started the show off with a fabulous number where he sang, danced, did some magic, cheers, jumped through a hoop and climbed like Spider-Man! It was such a great performance and really set everyone’s mood for the evening. He even got a standing ovation for it from all the celebs and Broadway stars. Our favorite part, though, was probably when he kissed the dog! To celebrate the awards, we’re bringing you the best dressed and craziest outfits from the actresses that were there!
Cicely Tyson won a Tony for Best Actress in a Play, and wore a long purple ruffled gown!
Patina Miller posing with her Tony for her role in “Pippin,” wore a totally gorgeous Zac Posen ballgown.
Anna Kendrick looked lovely in her velvety dress by Donna Karan Atelier, though for the summer she must have been really warm wearing it!
Megan Hilty, of “SMASH,” wore a lace and sheer Badgley Mischka dress on stage.
Darren Criss of “Glee” looked very handsome backstage at the awards!
Did you watch the Tony Awards on CBS? Are you happy with the winners of each category? Did you see any of the plays before? What were your faves for best dressed?

We just found out that Justin Bieber is apparently Outer Space-bound! The nineteen year old pop star is going to be launched into space as part of the Virgin Galactic program with his manager, Scooter Braun. The program says it’s for “Space Tourists” and promises sub-orbital spaceflights and is set to launch early next year. The spaceship will send amateur astronauts, including the Biebs, into orbit 62 miles in altitude. It’s only for a few moments though before it will plummet back to Earth! JB isn’t the only celeb doing the program. Ashton Kutcher and Leo DiCaprio are also signed up for the program! Justin retweeted Richard Branson’s congrats about the news,
“Great to hear @justinbieber & @scooterbraun are latest @virgingalactic future astronauts. Congrats, see you up there!”
Is Justin Bieber becoming the next famous astronaut? Would you ever become a space tourist?

Nick’s new show “Sam & Cat,” a spinoff of “Victorious,” and “iCarly” just aired on Saturday, June 8th! We waited what felt like forever for it to premiere, but it was totally worth the wait!! We absolutely loved the first episode! We won’t give too much away in case you haven’t seen it yet, but here’s a little background info about the show. Sam & Cat are total besties. Sam (played by Jennette McCurdy) is super tough and loud. Cat (Ariana Grande) is a totally sweetheart and a little silly. Though they are quite different, they are still the best of friends and roommates. They decide to combine their strengths and create an out-of-home babysitting business to raise money for their adventures together!
And now the moment of truth! Did you totally love the first episode of “Sam & Cat” starring Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande? Which character did you like more? Take our poll!

We totally love Ashley Greene in every role she plays, but of course “Alice” in the “Twilight” series is our obvious favorite. Still, we love seeing what she’s up to and what fabulous outfits she’s wearing! She was spotted in West Hollywood, California this week after having dinner with her friends. She’s sporting the maxi-dress trend and tanned skin and looks great! Here’s how to score her look.
First and foremost, you’ll need a blue and black patterned maxi-dress! We like the one above from Target called the Merona Women’s Sleeveless Maxi Dress in Floral Print.
Next you’ll need some open toed black sandals. We found a great pair at DSW called the Skechers Cali Long Stem Wedge Sandal.
Ashley’s last accessory is her big grey tote bag! There’s one at Kohl’s that we think is totally great! It’s the Apt. 9 Tricia Zipper Tote in the color Pewter!
What do you think about our “look like Ashley Greene” picks? Which was your favorite? What other stars do you want to dress like?
