What do YOU think of the band's new video?
Not too long ago, Buzznet was introduced to a stunning new artist, Arielle. Born in New Jersey, but mainly raised in California, the 22-year-old is the next big thing for the singer/singwriter scene and we're so excited to premiere her video for "California."
The video tours around the city of angels with Arielle as "California" tells the story of chasing dreams in Los Angeles and the struggle to make them come true.
We're kind of obsessed.
Check out the video below and don't forget to pick up her self-titiled EP, set to drop on April 29th!
Are You A Fan Of Arielle?
The lovely Zendaya Coleman stopped by Buzznet's studio to play a rousing game of Last Questions. Get the inside scoop on Zendaya's life. Who is the last person she texted, and what's up with Drake following her on Twitter?!
We're super excited to premiere BLEAUX's new video for their single "All Messed Up" off their upcoming debut EP. The Los Angeles based band's "sweet electro-pop-new wave influenced track" is nothing short of infectious and has had all of us here at Buzznet hitting replay!
The coolest part of the video is their use of stop-motion-animation to tell the storyand keep fans on their toes for future visual experiences the band plans to roll out in anticipation of their EP release.
Buzznet had the chance to throw a few questions at the band who shared their vision and why this project is so meaningful.
Check out their video and the exclusive interview below!
What do you think of "All Messed Up?"
Your video for "All Messed Up" is anything but. How did you come up with concept?
At about the same time we wrote the song, we were introduced to some work by the fashion designer and artist Curly V (a protege of David LaChapelle and Jeremy Scott). Modern, DIY, pop conscious painters and art play a significant role in our thinking and mindset when it comes to our overall aesthetic and when we saw Curly V’s work, we knew right away we wanted to collaborate with him. Without giving too much away, you really have to pay attention to what the song is really about and then when you watch the visual all the way through you will understand how the concept and images of the video are our collective minds visual interpretation what we see when we hear the record.
The sound & style for the video mesh well together. Can we expect more the same aesthetic in the future?
The aesthetic of everything we do is very important to us. As a group, we feel that our songs, our performances, our videos, etc., really everything, is all an extension of the same thing and that they are meant to exist in our own parallel universe. We really embrace the idea that while we are musicians, we are all really just people with ideas in our heads that have to come out and so we express them in all the mediums we can and try to do it in a semi-cohesive way. So to answer the question, yes you can expect more things that mesh well visually and sonically, but will we do another video just like this, who knows. What you see is what you get with us.
Do you have any influences (musically) that you incorporated into your album?
That is really up to the listener to decide what he or she hears in our music, but for sure we are all rock n’ roll and punk kids at heart. But, we live in a world of fusion of musical palates and our sound is that fusion brought to life from our perspective. We take a little bit of our influences from everywhere and fuse them together for our sound. Even if you asked each member of the band what influences they hear in our music, everybody would have a different answer because they are telling it from their own point of view and perspective.

It's been a while since vampires were the current hotness in pop-culture, but with the February 7, release of Vampire Academy just a few days away, we caught up with author Richelle Mead to find out why this new franchise is about to take over the teen world and beyond!
For those that haven’t read the series, how would you explain it’s different from Twilight, Vampire Diaries, etc.? Vampire Academy is based on a Romanian myth I came across, about how there are two races of vampires in the world: the Moroi (living, benign vampires who don’t kill for blood) and the Strigoi (evil, undead vampires who are akin to our more common ideas of vampires). Between them are the dhampirs, half-vampires who in legend acted as Strigoi hunters. In my series, I’ve created a whole society within our world for the Moroi, with a royal hierarchy and complex social system. There are moments that make you laugh, some that make you cry, and some that have you biting your nails.
What was it like on-set? What was the chemistry like between the actors?
My set visit was amazing. It was two days, and I wish I could’ve seen more! The actors have incredible chemistry. Even off the set, you can see it in the way they interact with each other on social media. They all got along and had such a wonderful rapport, which is so key in a story like this, which is focused around relationships and the way people connect with each other. Equally amazing was how much everyone seemed to love what they were doing. It meant the world to me that this project, based on my book, brought them such joy.
Out of all the characters you created, which is your favorite and why?
I can never answer this question! It’s like choosing children. They all offer something wonderful and unique to write. Rose’s attitude and wit are always fun, and Lissa’s soulfulness and dark edge provide a great counterbalance. Christian’s sharp comments, Dimitri’s stoicism and bravery…they all have something I love.
Hooked yet? Well, if you're still not sure, Buzznet is giving away a copy of Vampire Academy for you to read before you pay money for the movie!

That Awkward Moment is a movie that really shows what happens between a bunch of dudes when the ladies aren’t around… You know, because boys need their “guy time.” But when guy time is messed with, things can get a little bit awkward… Especially when a girl is the core problem
For example, check out King Bach’s awkward moment in the Instagram video below:
