Meet the Monster High Ghouls Monster High has become more than just dolls made by Mattel. It has become the ultimate fantasy world for all girls of any age. With characters that are the offsprings of famous monsters, Monster High has quite the attendance sheet. The first Monster High students to emerge were Frankie Stein, daughter of Frankenstein and his bride; Clawdeen Wolf, daughter of the werewolf; Draculaura, the daughter of Count Dracula; Cleo

De Nile, the daughter of the Mummy; Deuce Gorgon, the son of Medusa; Lagoona Blue, the daughter of the Creature from the Black Lagoon and a Nereid; and Ghoulia Yelps, the daughter of zombies. Other characters have emerged such as: Operetta, the daughter of Phantom of the Opera; Clawd Wolf, brother to Clawdeen and son to the Werewolf; Jackson Jekyll and Holt Hyde, the sons of Dr. Jekyll and Mrs. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Mrs. Hyde; Abby Abominable, the daughter of the Abominable snowman; and Robecca Steam, the daughter of mad scientists. While the dolls are the ultimate highlight for any girl because they can make their own drama, Mattel has released webisodes that are available online at their site as well as specials that air on Nickelodeon. The newest upcoming video is called 13 Wishes. This will be released on DVD October 4, 2013.

Cybertron, pictured as it was in the cartoons, is the home planet to the Transformers. The versions of the planet are different when concerning the comics, the cartoon, and the movie. Find out how the cartoons and comics differed from the live action movie.


Page 39

History of Cybertron Every planet is different. Whether it be Earth, Krypton, or the infamous Cybertron. What makes the Transformers tick? Was their planet really alive or was it created by the Allspark?

C

ybertron is the home planet of the Transformers and usually, as depicted in the comics and cartoons, the body of their creator Primus. Cybertron is a shining metal, technological world. A planet of towering future cities without end and vast metallic plains, spiraling metal mountains and bottomless neon-lit chasms.

T

he movie depicted a different story of Cybertron. While the planet was not wasted or destroyed in the cartoons, the movie stated that Cybertron was destroyed.

I

“

Eventually, what little the Transformers knew of their origins would be lost to time.�

n the movie, Cybertron was created by the Allspark. With the same power, the Thirteen Primes were also created. It was soon discovered that while the Allspark’s power was vast, it was not infinite. The universe provided the answer as a star went supernova nearby and recharged the Allspark. Though the Primes could travel through the dimensions, they needed help locating stars and harvesting their energy.

T

he Allspark gave the Thirteen primes two gifts. The first gift was a second race of Cybertronians called Transformers.. These races made the Dynasty of Primes which was in charge of protecting the Allspark and Cybertron.

T

T

he story continues that one of the Thirteen Primes went rogue and killed 11 of his brothers. The twelveth brother was able to seal the Allspark in an tomb made out of his brothers before his spark went out. When the rogue Prime, who then came to be known as the Fallen, went to rest in his

he second gift was the Matrix of Leadership. This was a key which contained the essence of the Allspark and powered the star harvesters.

own tomb to recharge, the spirits of his brother sealed him in his tomb Out of the war, only one surviovor of the Primes remained.

I T

t is because of the war that happened, that Cybertron was destroyed in the movie. The races became so consummed fighting over the Matrix of Leadership and the Allspark, that their planet died. une in next month as we go over the history of the leaders including the original creator, Primus. Till then, Roll out Autobots.

Bully Prevention When we are kids, we think that hair pulling, scratching, poking, tripping, and other things are the thing to do to show someone that we like them. How times have changed. In today’s age, we have children that have gone to the point to call others fat, stupid, or something else to the point where the kids are beginning to get depressed and thinking that they are worthless. So why isn’t something being done? Some schools have gone to the extreme of keeping younger children segregated from the older children in attempts to stop the bullying. Some schools have resorted into only allowing certain unifroms instead of the normal clothes that they can wear at home. What does the uniforms solve? This allows a unified student body and does not leave room for gang related material. This also makes all the student’s look like each other. So besides shoes, bookbags, and hair style (and coats when the weather calls for it); all the kids look like each other so that way the clothing factor cannot be used against kids any longer. What else can be done about bullying? Listen to

your children. If it seems that they are having problems in school with work, moody, or starting to get violent towards their siblings then that means there is a problem. Sit down with them and talk to them. Find out what is going on. Make it a point to get involved. When taking them to school, take your child with you into the office of the school. That way they see that you are doing something about the situation. This helps the child to feel as if they can come to you about a problem and that they are being heard. Make sure though, if the problem persists, that they see you are willing to take it to the highest point to make sure they are safe and secure. What happens if your child is the bully? Find out why. There are many reasons why a child becomes a bully. There could be problems with the parents. Sometimes this occurs if there are issues between the parents themselves. Remember your child can still pick up on even dirty looks. If there are spousal issues, make sure that not only are you trying to work on things but that you are getting your child the help that they need as well to get through the emotional situation as well. Other causes could be that the child has a lot of


Page 51

siblings and might need some special time. As parents, we don’t mean to single out any one child of ours. However, when one excels, we do have a tendency of holding that child up and making the others feel that they have to match them in order to be important. So let each child in your home know that they are important no matter what. Another reason is that the child is being abused or neglected at home. There are some children that are responsible for caring for themselves at home or are getting beaten. If you think this might be happening, do not be afraid to notify the proper authorities. Even if it is family, those children need to be protected at any cost versus being left to continue to be hurt or neglected.

Silence is no longer an acceptable response to bullying. Adults, students, and educators can no longer look away when they see bullying. Ignoring it won’t work.

We need to remember that children are our future. They were also our past at one point and time and are our present. Children shape the world. As adults, we remember what we learned as a child, how we were treated as a child shapes our relationships as an adult, and what we saw and felt is what we carry on. So give the children something good to see, remember, and to feel. Stop bullying and save the lives of our children.

More than 160,000 U.S. students stay home from school each day from fear of being bullied. Bullying directly affects a student’s ability to learn. Students who are bullied find it difficult to concentrate, show a decline in grades, and lose selfesteem, self-confidence, and self-worth. Students who are bullied report more physical symptoms, such as headaches or stomachaches, and mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety, than other students. In some cases, bullying has led to devastating consequences, such as school shootings and suicide. Bullying affects witnesses as well as targets. Witnesses often report feeling unsafe, helpless, and afraid that they will be the next target. Students can be especially effective in bullying intervention. More than 55 percent of bullying situations will stop when a peer intervenes. Student education of how to address bullying for peers is critical, as is the support of adults.

Mad Science with Frankie Stein E

veryone should love science. Heck that is how my Dad came to life. He was a science experiment of Dr. Frankenstein. Though the villagers didn’t understand my Dad or Grandpa, He is truly a work of art and mind. So what we are going to do is do a few experiments ourselves. Don’t worry, these are perfectly safe and might even be fun for the parents. So make sure you get their consent before doing any of these. Now for the experiements we have a variety. We can make glowing water, gravity free water, our very own lava lamp, a tornado in a bottle, or we can play around with a little bit of static electricity which is my favorite. Well grab a parent or two and let’s start with the static electricity experiment. It is guaranteed to be a shocker!


Page 57

Static Electricity They say opposites attract and that couldn’t be truer with these fun static electricity experiments. Find out about positively and negatively charged particles using a few basic items, can you control if they will be attracted or unattracted to each other? What you’ll need: • 2 inflated balloons with string attached • Your hair • Aluminium can • Woolen fabric   Instructions: 1. Rub the 2 balloons one by one against the woolen fabric, then try moving the balloons together, do they want to or are they unattracted to each other? 2. Rub 1 of the balloons back and forth on your hair then slowly it pull it away, ask someone nearby what they can see or if there’s nobody else around try looking in a mirror. 3. Put the aluminium can on its side on a table, after rubbing the balloon on your hair again hold the balloon close to the can and watch as it rolls towards it, slowly move the balloon away from the can and it will follow.   What’s happening? Rubbing the balloons against the woolen fabric or your hair creates static electricity. This involves negatively charged particles (electrons) jumping to positively charged objects. When you rub the balloons against your hair or the fabric they become negatively charged, they have taken some of the electrons from the hair/fabric and left them positively charged. They say opposites attract and that is certainly the case in these experiments, your positively charged hair is attracted to the negatively charged balloon and starts to rise up to meet it. This is similar to the aluminium can which is drawn to the negatively charged balloon as the area near it becomes positively charged, once again opposites attract. In the first experiment both the balloons were negatively charged after rubbing them against the woolen fabric, because of this they were unattracted to each other.

A Lava Lamp Learn how to make an easy lava lamp with this fun science experiment for kids. Use simple household items such as vegetable oil, food coloring, Alka-Seltzer and a bottle to create chemical reactions and funky balls of color that move around like a real lava lamp. What you’ll need: • Water • A clear plastic bottle • Vegetable oil • Food coloring • Alka-Seltzer (or other tablets that fizz)   Instructions: 1. Pour water into the plastic bottle until it is around one quarter full (you might want to use a funnel when filling the bottle so you don’t spill anything). 2. Pour in vegetable oil until the bottle is nearly full. 3. Wait until the oil and water have separated. 4. Add around a dozen drops of food coloring to the bottle (choose any color you like). 5. Watch as the food coloring falls through the oil and mixes with the water. 6. Cut an Alka-Seltzer tablet into smaller pieces (around 5 or 6) and drop one of them into the bottle, things should start getting a little crazy, just like a real lava lamp! 7. When the bubbling stops, add another piece of Alka-Seltzer and enjoy the show!   What’s happening? If you’ve tried our oil and water experiment you’ll know that the two don’t mix very well. The oil and water you added to the bottle separate from each other, with oil on top because it has a lower density than water. The food coloring falls through the oil and mixes with the water at the bottom. The piece of Alka-Seltzer tablet you drop in after releases small bubbles of carbon dioxide gas that rise to the top and take some of the colored water along for the ride. The gas escapes when it reaches the top and the colored water falls back down. The reason Alka-Seltzer fizzes in such a way is because it contains citric acid and baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), the two react with water to form sodium citrate and carbon dioxide gas (those are the bubbles that carry the colored water to the top of the bottle). Adding more Alka-Seltzer to the bottle keeps the reaction going so you can enjoy your funky lava lamp for longer. If you want to show someone later you can simply screw on a bottle cap and add more Alka-Seltzer when you need to. When you’ve finished all your Alka-Seltzer, you can take the experiment a step further by tightly screwing on a bottle cap and tipping the bottle back and forth, what happens then?


Page 59

Gravity Free Water What goes up must come down right? Well try bending the rules a little with a cup of water that stays inside the glass when held upside down. You’ll need the help of some cardboard and a little bit of air pressure. What you’ll need: • A glass filled right to the top with water • A piece of cardboard   Instructions: 1. Put the cardboard over the mouth of the glass, making sure that no air bubbles enter the glass as you hold onto the cardboard. 2. Turn the glass upside down (over a sink or outside until you get good). 3. Take away your hand holding the cardboard.   What’s happening? If all goes to plan then the cardboard and water should stay put. Even though the cup of water is upside down the water stays in place, defying gravity! So why is this happening? With no air inside the glass, the air pressure from outside the glass is greater than the pressure of the water inside the glass. The extra air pressure manages to hold the cardboard in place, keeping you dry and your water where it should be, inside the glass.

Glowing Water Make glowing water with the help of a black light in this fun science experiment for kids. Tonic water doesn’t look very strange under normal light but what happens when you look at it under a black light? Does the dye from a highlighter pen do the same thing? Find out what happens and why it happens with this cool experiment that you can do at home. What you’ll need: • A black light (you can find them at places like Walmart and hardware stores, as well as online stores like Amazon). • Tonic water or a highlighter pen. • A dark room to do the experiment.   Instructions: 1. If you are using a highlighter pen carefully break it open, remove the felt and soak it in a small amount of water for a few minutes. 2. Find a dark room. 3. Turn on the black light near your water, how does it look?   What’s happening? Simple explanation: The ultra violet (UV) light coming from your black light lamp excites things called phosphors. Tonic water and the dye from highlighter pens contain phosphors that turn UV light (light we can’t see) into visible light (light we can see). That’s why your water glows in the dark when you shine a black light on it. Black lights are used in forensic science, artistic performances, photography, authentication of banknotes and antiques, and in many other areas. Detailed explanation: Black light (also known as UV or ultra violet light) is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The electromagnetic spectrum also includes infrared, X-rays, visible light (what the human eye can see) and other types of electromagnetic radiation. A black light lamp such as the one you used emits a UV light that can illuminate objects and materials that contain phosphors. Phosphors are special substances that emit light (luminescence) when excited by radiation. Your water glowed under the black light because it contained phosphors. If you used a highlighter pen then the UV light reacted with phosphors in the dye. If you used tonic water then the UV light reacted with phosphors in a chemical used in tonic water called quinine. There are different types of luminescence, they include fluorescence (used in this experiment, it glows only when the black light is on), phosphorescence (similar to fluorescence but with a glow that can last even after the black light is turned off ), chemiluminescence (used to create glow sticks), bioluminescence (from living organisms) and many others.


Page 61

Tornado in a bottle Learn how to make a tornado in a bottle with this fun science experiment for kids. Using easy to find items such as dish washing liquid, water, glitter and a bottle you can make your own mini tornado that’s a lot safer than one you might see on the weather channel. Follow the instructions and enjoy the cool water vortex you create! What you’ll need: • Water • A clear plastic bottle with a cap (that won’t leak) • Glitter • Dish washing liquid   Instructions: 1. Fill the plastic bottle with water until it reaches around three quarters full. 2. Add a few drops of dish washing liquid. 3. Sprinkle in a few pinches of glitter (this will make your tornado easier to see). 4. Put the cap on tightly. 5. Turn the bottle upside down and hold it by the neck. Quickly spin the bottle in a circular motion for a few seconds, stop and look inside to see if you can see a mini tornado forming in the water. You might need to try it a few times before you get it working properly.   What’s happening? Spinning the bottle in a circular motion creates a water vortex that looks like a mini tornado. The water is rapidly spinning around the center of the vortex due to centripetal force (an inward force directing an object or fluid such as water towards the center of its circular path). Vortexes found in nature include tornadoes, hurricanes and waterspouts (a tornado that forms over water).

The Unslightly Blemish

Deuce here. I know most of you think it is uncool to eat healthy. Well, as an avid food lover, I am here to tell you that it is not uncool. I happen to love the Culinary classes at Monster High and as you can see I have a perfect face. No blemishes what so ever. I am also very lean and muscular. Can’t really be on the casketball team without being able to keep up. So how do I keep up on eating right and being able to still look cool? It’s gotta be my shades. Just kidding. I found a lot of recipes that actually are very healthy while tasting great. Just remember, I have a thing about Greek food. So if it isn’t to your liking then please don’t make it. I don’t need to hear Venus complain to me about wasting the Earth’s plants and stuff again.

First Transgender

Queen Cassidy Lynn Campbell did something typical when she was named her Southern California high school’s homecoming queen. She wept. But Campbell hopes her crown will serve a specific purpose: The transgender teen wants to open people’s minds about gender identity. “I wasn’t doing this for me,” 16-year-old Campbell, who lived as Lance Campbell until three years ago, told ABC News. “I was doing this for so many others around the nation.” Winning the student vote over five other finalists, Campbell became the first trans homecoming queen at Huntington Beach’s Marina High School, although she says she experienced some backlash when she had made it into the top 10. “They think I’m just a boy doing this for fun ... just a boy dressing up as a girl and trying to win a crown when that is completely the opposite of what it is. I’ve always seen myself as a girl,” Campbell, who has posted a number of YouTube videos tracking her transformation from boy to girl, told ABC. Eventually, she changed students’ perceptions. “I think it’s really cool how we allowed her to run, and I just think it’s a really good thing,” student Kelsey Callanan told ABC. Campbell’s mother, Christine Campbell, was also amazed by her daughter’s crowning achievement. “I never would have thought in my lifetime that I would see this,” she said. “It’s wonderful. She really did it.” “My goal isn’t to be famous, it’s to open people’s eyes to the world around them, to teach people to be open minded and to rethink social norms,” Campbell Tweeted. As for her homecoming victory: “This was for … every misunderstood child affected by ignorance.”

Etiquette

E F

veryone can give you the hoopla about online etiquette, the things of which to do and not to do while surfing the net. Well, I can tell you that sometimes, no matter what you do, you can’t always follow the rules. But here are some tips to help you avoid breaking

the rules. irst off, you need to be honest about who you are when talking to anyone. Did you know that you can get someone in trouble if you falsify your age to someone online? Oh yeah. This is like the golden ticket to a “Go to Jail, do not collect $200” for anyone that is caught

associating with anyone under the age of 18 in a manner that might not be appropriate. But here’s the way around that one for the person that was dumb enough to engage it, if there is evidence that the person stated that they were any other age that what they really were, then you have a good fighting chance in court. For example, IMVU has your age in their records when you sign up for your account. Even if you hide it on your profile card, the administration can still pull up those records. So do yourselves a favor, just don’t lie about the age.

ullying is hard to deal with. We’ve all been through it. I know I have a few times. Regardless how it makes you feel, two wrongs don’t make a right. So instead of just exiting out of the conversation, do a few things first. One is to report the chat log, messages,

pictures, etc. that was used to harass or bully you. This will make sure that there is a record of you saying that what happened is not okay. Then make sure you add the person to your block list. This shows not only were you not okay with what they were doing to you, but you seriously don’t want to be around them nor was asking for that kind of treatment. Lastly, make sure there were no threats of bodily harm made towards you. If there was, you need to tell your parents and contact your local police department. All information can be found on the net if you know how to find it. So any threats need to be taken seriously. Remember though, when you report the chats and what not, make sure that you did not start any of the behavior by what you wrote. When you report things, they get your part of the conversation too. If you are found to have started it, there will be repercussions on you as well.

I P

f you are going through some emotional things, it is best if you just avoid the internet like the plague. Sometimes people post things that they normally wouldn’t say and the sad part is, even if you delete it later, someone has already seen it. So if you have gone through a

break up, a death in the family, or anything else; avoid places like Facebook. While you didn’t mean to offend anyone, someone probably did get offended. ost appropriate pictures. No one wants to see your underwear. This is another way that you can bring on cyber bullies. Remember this, there is a good chance that your parents are watching everything you do regardless if you are “friends” with them on any social

sites. So if you don’t want your Daddy to know you have been a naughty girl or your Mommy to know you have been a naughty boy, then keep yourself covered. It actually shows people that you have more respect for yourself and shows maturity by not showing skimpy disgusting photos.

B

asically on an online setting, remember how your parents raised you. If you do not disrespect, lie, bully, or walk around nude (or close to it) in the real world, don’t do it on the net. Everything you do reflects back on your parents. Even though times have changed

to where most children and teens can be held accountable for their actions, it doesn’t mean that the parents and guardians do not have to go through it too or reap some of the punishment. So keep it clean and respectful.

The drink can be made with the over-the-counter medications like Robitussin DM, which contains dextromethorphan. Normally used as a cough suppressant, in large doses this substance

W

hile its origins have been disputed, one thing can’t be denied: Planking has taken over as a new teen

trend. The activity consists of lying face down — like a board — on any and every surface. Participants snap a photo and upload it to the internet, where planking groups have proliferated to immortalize the most daring or silly pictures. It has caused numerous injuries and at least one death when a young man tried to plank on a balcony and plummeted seven stories. In most cases, planking is relatively harmless, but parents should remind teens to use common sense and safety while participating.

up

the

vod-

eyeballing

trend. Instead of throwing back a shot, teens hold the bottle to their eye and pour the liquid directly into the eye, which is laden with blood vessels. Here, the alcohol is quickly absorbed through the mucous membrane and enters the bloodstream immediately through the veins at the back of the eye. Eyeballing may yield a quick buzz without the bad breath but there can be extreme consequences: Because most vodkas are between 40 and 50 percent alcohol, it can scar and burn the cornea, and even cause blindness.

T

his potentially lethal “game” involves

the use of restraints or the assistance of a friend to choke the player in order to

cut off the flow of blood to the brain. The purpose is to obtain the high that comes when the restraint is released and the blood rushes back into the brain. In actuality, the “high” feeling comes from thousands of brain cells dying because of lack of oxygen, causing long term brain damage, comas, strokes, and bleeding in


Page 99

the brain (also known as “silent stroke”). Because there is never a way to know the exact time to let go, many participants pass out and some have actually hanged themselves. Most players are teens who want to get high without using drugs or alcohol. Although it is estimated that as many as 250 to 1,000 teens die from playing the choking game each year, most are ruled suicides.

T

he new drug sold legally as “bath salts” in head shops and liquor stores grabbed national headlines when it was outlawed by Louisiana in January 2011. Many states are trying to make the drug illegal, but since it takes different forms and combines different ingre-

dients, state government officials have struggled with how to define the illicit substance. The bath salts have been found to contain mephedrone and MDPV, two drugs that cause severe hallucinations and psychosis in users who smoke, snort, or inject the substances. A single use causes intense cravings that results in three to four day binges and can end in suicide. Because bath salts continue to be legal in many states, some teens incorrectly assume the effects are less dangerous than other known narcotics. In the past six months, there have been over 3,470 calls to poison centers in 28 states to report incidents of bath salt exposure.

S

tudies indicate that as many as 40 percent of all young athletes take protein enhancements, which are available in forms ranging from bars to shakes to powders. While teens may take the supplement in order to improve muscle growth, muscle recovery, and

overall athletic performance, there is no evidence that supplements are any more “enhancing” than a nutritious diet. In fact, such supplements can have harmful effects, such as weight gain, muscle cramping, high blood pressure, and heart problems. Creatine, which is found in many products, can actually interfere with a growing adolescent’s own natural production of creatine, making the body reliant on supplements. Overuse can actually cause blood acidity, which then draws calcium from the bones to counteract the higher acidity of pH in the blood, leading to declining bone strength and kidney stones formed by excess calcium. Advertisments for protein enhancements are ubiquitous in sports magazines, and the substances will likely continue to be popular because of the high protein to low carbohydrate and fat ratio, but parents and athletic coaches should monitor their use and encourage a healthy diet for teen athletes.

Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds The coffin-bangers were about to arrive With their vocal group, “The Crypt-Kicker Five”

They played the mash They played the monster mash The monster mash It was a graveyard smash They played the mash It caught on in a flash

They played the monster mash

Love Potion #9 I took my troubles down to Madame Ruth You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth

But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine

She’s got a pad down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine

He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine

Sellin’ little bottles of Love Potion Number Nine

Love Potion Number Nine Love Potion Number Nine

I told her that I was a flop with chicks I’d been this way since 1956 She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign She said “What you need is Love Potion Number Nine”

She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink She said “I’m gonna make it up right here in the sink” It smelled like turpentine, it looked like India Ink* I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

I didn’t know if it was day or night I started kissin’ everything in sight But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine

Psst...FYI...Did you Know? OMG!! This is so exciting being back in a new magazine!! I can barely contain myself. Well anyways, you don’t want to hear how excited I am. You want to hear the latest gossip... I mean 411 on the Hollywood vibe. So lets start!! Okay we’re going to start off with, EWWW NASTY!!! Miley Cyrus is out with a vengeance and it’s almost quite disgusting. The former Hannah Montana star is still feeling her ground about being an adult and it seems she doesn’t care who she hurts in her wake. Poor Liam Hemsworth. Seems the 20 year-old star has finally cut ties to her on and off again fiancee. Well we kinda could have guessed since she had issues even wearing the gorgeous ring he got her. Why was this relationship doomed we’ll never know. While Miley is pulling her antics, she has stars such as Britney Spears and Adam Lambert defending her actions. Adam Lambert has been quoted to say, “Hey if it wasn’t your cup of tea, all good but why is everyone spazzing? Hey- she’s doing something right. We all talkin.” Well that’s fine and dandy when we’re used to it from someone like Adam and maybe even Britney herself. But Ms. Hannah Montana? I think not. Well, Miley, hope you get your act together. As for songs, ‘Wrecking Ball” is good but we all know the truth hun. Liam didn’t wreck you, you wrecked him. And being naked for the video doesn’t show anything about you being crushed or you licking a sledge hammer. That shows you have overt sexual feelings and should maybe consult the other stars on how to get it out properly. Get some clothes on!!!

When they sang ‘Bye, Bye, Bye’, I don’t think N’Sync meant forever. During the VMA’s the long awaited return of this iconic boyband reunited. The bandmates had agreed that they wouldn’t have done it if it weren’t for Justin Timberlake. Timberlake called J.C. Chasez and from what Chasez stated he said, “Hey man, listen. I’m getting this award and they have given me a pile of time to perform and we started our careers at MTV and I think we should get the band back together.” Timberlake was up for the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award and couldn’t think of a better way to accept it than to include the rest of the guys. Even though remembering the times and music wasn’t difficult, the same could not be said about the moves. On another note from N’Sync, Lance bass is now engaged to be married. If we all remember the former member came out of the closet a few years back. No date has been set yet. But I’ll let you know when :).

Hot cutie batotie, Zac Efron, was just released from a stint in rehab. Oh wow! The great part was this came as a shock all across the globe as the star known famously for the High Schoo Musical trilogy was able to keep his problems out of the limelight. He went into rehab for alcoholism and now seems to be in better spirits without the spirits. When press caught up to the 24 year old hunk at the premiere of his newest movie, Parkland, the actor stated that he was “good, real good.” Efron portrays Jim Carrico in the film, the real life doctor who was the first to treat President John F. Kennedy at Parkland Memorial Hospital after the President had been shot. The movie hits theaters October 4th. We wish Zac a great continued recovery and can’t wait to see what else he has in store for us.
