About Ashley Kutcher
Ashley Kutcher is a 23-year-old rising singer, songwriter and artist originally from Baltimore, Maryland. Ashley originally went on to chase a nursing degree at Towson University after high school. During her time at school, a local bar discovered a video of her singing online and asked her to perform on their stage. This single opportunity opened Ashley up to the world of music and songwriting, as she quit her waitressing job and began playing sets at the bar, playing for around four hours per each night. When Ashley’s senior year came, she began posting her singing talents on TikTok. Ashley posted a demo of “Lust,” which captivated the attention of over thousands of people. Continuing off this momentum, Ashley soon after posted another demo “Hands to Myself” to streaming platforms, with the song accumulating over 1 million streams on Spotify.
While continuing to grow her emerging fanbase, Ashley noticed a tweet from blackbear that stated, “hit me up if you don’t like me.” Ashley took inspiration from this tweet, and formulated her own song called “HMU if U Don’t Like Me,” similar to the tweet by blackbear. The song rapidly gained another million streams, and Ashley realized the true talent that she possessed. Ashley, again, took to TikTok with another one of her songs “Love You From A Distance,” produced by Eric Taft. The song surpassed 9.5 million Spotify streams while she signed to Darkroom/Interscope Records (with now over 58 million audio streams). Ashley’s creative and sincere point of view attracted her audience, leading to the success of her debut EP One Eighty. Ashley now is getting ready to perform her music for the first time in Los Angeles and New York.

GIGI VEGA INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:
1. How has your family inspired you and your music?
GV: I would always do little shows and auditions. My father is a jazz musician. He would play the piano, so I was always surrounded by music, and theater as well.
GV: It just happened. Actually, had it for a while, but was finally able to come back to it. Originally, the lyrics were supposed to be “in the club”, instead of “in the crib”. But I had to make adjustments due to COVID 19
GV: Melodies just come to me. Melodies come first for me. Lyrics come from everyday life experiences. I’ve always been into dancing and singing. It’s something that just clicked for me, but I got more into it once I started composing my own songs.
5. What charities are you aligned with and why?
GV: Anti-bullying programs.
6. What acting projects will you be involved with in the future?
GV: Janet Jackson. Definitely into anyone who is super full out, and she is one of them.
8. What advice would you give to a singer starting out?
GV: Don’t let anyone steer you in the direction of what they want you to be – it is not worth it, ever.
9. Talk about your training as a triple threat, what do you do to stay on top?
GV: Just take a look at my Music video, it is all there. Acting, dancing, singing. I have trained in all three disciplines since I was very young. My dance training was focused on modern dance, but I am schooled in all disciplines. I have always been on stage or behind the camera, so it is second nature.
10. How do you take care of your voice?
GV: Regular training, like an athlete. Lots of lemon and pineapple juice, as well.
11. If you could collaborate with another artist, who would it be?
14. When did you know you wanted to be an entertainer?
GV: Never thought about anything else. I was on stage from an early age. I made the move from stage to commercial work in my teens. Once I learned how to write solid music, I knew I wanted to record music. It was a process. I spent hundreds of hours in the studio as a kid.
15. What artist did you admire as a child?
GV: I loved watching Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson is my absolute favorite.
16. Do you play any instruments?
GV: I pluck out notes on the piano and guitar to help my melodies. Had many lessons and music theory, but I won’t be accompanying myself just yet.
17. What’s your fashion style?
GV: I like more tropical vibes, or casual, put-together vibes, but I always like to switch it up. I can be glam or a Tomboy. Get a girl who can do both.
18. What do you do to relax?
GV: I love fashion, always putting fashion pieces together. I learned to sew as a child, went to classes and camps for years. I was one of those kids who got a new shirt, and then I would go to my room and change the shape and design. I love listening to music and writing. Honestly, writing is my happy space.
19. What other businesses do you plan on starting to promote your brand?
GV: I am very into sneakers and shoes. I have so many different designs in my head that need to come out.
20. What’s the one thing you think everyone could do to make the world a more positive place?
GV: Less judgment of others, especially strangers.
OFF THEIR 3RD ALBUM, SEASON3. [HIDEOUT: BE OUR VOICE]
K-Pop boy band, CRAVITY, has released their highly anticipated performance video for “Bad Habits” today. The B-side track is off their 3rd album, SEASON3. [HIDEOUT: BE OUR VOICE], released earlier this year. With an ambitious drive to turn the year 2021 into CRAVITY’s, the members wasted no time speaking to places like Good Day New York, iHeart, ET Canada, Radio.com, and many more, about their success thus far and the creative process behind the album.
“We shot the performance video for “Bad Habits” using many new techniques we haven’t tried before, for example, shooting with night vision or lip-syncing to a lower angle camera through a glass pane. The dance routine was really fun to perform and suits the mood of the song really well,” says Rapper Allen. The leader of the group, Serim, adds “We had a very short time to prepare for our B-side track promotion, but we’ve worked super hard to complete it in success.”
The main theme for the performance video of “Bad Habits” is ‘Nocturnal,’ and viewers can see the members’ dynamic moves and performance on the night of the full moon. They’ve turned into bad boys with funky visuals and will draw full attention by showing more matured and developed skills. The song “Bad Habits” is meant to showcase a different side of the CRAVITY members with a more rough and tough persona. The lyrics tell a story of 9 members who will not collapse in this world but will clearly show their own way to survive through it. EXY from K-Pop Group Cosmic Girls (WJSN) participated as a lyricist on this track with underground trap beats. In addition, 3 CRAVITY members [Taeyoung, Allen, and Hyeongjun] participated in the draft version of the “Bad Habits” choreography, further showing their artistic abilities.
CRAVITY’s debut album, released in April 2020, SEASON1. [HIDEOUT: REMEMBER WHO WE ARE] caused a wave of intrigue and excitement here in the states, with mentions in PAPER Magazine, Access, iHeart, J-14, MTV News, Earmilk, Teen Vogue, andRolling Stone, who referred to their title track as “An anthemic track from the K-pop rookies that combines 808-style riffs with the melodic sensibilities of early-2000s boybands (extended dance break included).” In addition to that, CRAVITY made a splash on social media, debuting at No. 12 on Billboard’s Social 50 chart for the week dated April 25.
CRAVITY has also garnered the title “Super Rookie” over in Korea due to their debut album’s success, which hit No. 1 on the U.S. @iTunes Top K-Pop Albums chart, making them the first #Kpop rookie group to debut in 2020 to earn this achievement. CRAVITY has marked their relentless movement, sweeping the rookie of the year awards at various music awards ceremonies in Korea. Even after releasing only two albums, their achievements were more than enough to show their presence in the K-pop scene, giving them the title ‘2020 super rookie.’
The inspiration behind the name, CRAVITY, came to fruition through the combination of “Creativity” and “Gravity,” Starship Entertainment’s new boy band for the first time in five years since Monsta X. Consisting of nine members, [Serim, Allen, Jungmo, Woobin, Wonjin, Minhee, Hyeongjun, Taeyoung, and Seongmin], CRAVITY, which is also an acronym for “Center of Gravity,” is meant to attract/gravitate listeners into their unique universe, by pulling them in with their creativity, charm, and pure talent. As humans, we all have our own “first experiences,”; whether that be in school, society, or in a relationship. When encountering new relationships, we sometimes prepare ourselves by running from the starting line at full speed, hearts racing, butterflies in our stomach, but at the same time, we are afraid. We are hopeful, but we also experience despair.
Savannah Lee May (born August 12, 2000) is an American singer, dancer, and actress from Los Angeles, California. Leo is Savannah’s zodiac sign and she is known to be loyal, generous, and protective.
The young artist has appeared in several series, however, she became known when she played Buttercup in Knight Squad. She started out as a teenager and now, barely twenty-one years old, she has become the talk of the town again thanks to her TikTok videos in which she not only dances but also sings and acts.
Q: How did you first get into acting and has it always been a passion of yours?
A: I started off dancing when I was 3 1/2 and instantly fell in love with performing. So, I guess you could say that was my first passion. I really didn’t start getting into the acting and singing side of it all until I was 11 when auditioned for a musical theatre academy in Houston. Once I started training with them, I quickly realized that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I truly couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
Q: What has been the biggest change or adjustment you’ve had to make when moving from Houston to LA?
A: The weather was definitely one of the major changes haha! But I think being so far away from family was the biggest adjustment we had to make. Growing up, we were all so close and saw each other almost every day. I mean, my cousins were basically like my older brothers, we were constantly together. The furthest we had ever lived from any of them was about 15 minutes, so to move to a completely different state is something that we are still trying to get used to.
Q: Which kinds of characters do you enjoy playing the most and why?
A: Definitely ones that come with a challenge. I’ve always been the kind of person who was down to try anything and as an actor, you can’t be afraid to fail. It’s better to give it everything you got instead of holding back because you’re scared of not being perfect. So, playing characters that are really far from myself or ones that really push my limits are always the ones I enjoy playing the most.
Q: Why do you think the fine arts are such a crucial part of society and why should everyone appreciate them?
A: I think they’re incredibly crucial! The fine arts are such an amazing outlet for people to really express themselves and to share their passion with the world. I know from personal experience, it’s the best escape for anyone going through a tough time. It’s definitely something that is under appreciated, especially in schools. You know, it’s a proven fact that students who are in theater, drama, dance, etc. have higher test scores than their peers who are not in the fine arts and are less likely to drop out. It makes me so sad to see schools that continue to cut their fine arts programs for budgetary reasons when the fine arts have helped so many people in their personal lives.
Q: What has been your favorite production that you’ve worked on, and why?
A: I’ve been very lucky to have a career where I have loved every project that I’ve been a part of. Knight Squad” was my first job and I learned so much while working on it. I made lifelong friends on that show and I think it will always have a special place in my heart. With “Secret Lives of Cheerleaders,” that was the first movie I ever did and it was my first leading role. It was such a wonderful experience. Then with “Julie and The Phantoms,” it’s everything I could’ve ever dreamed of rolled into one! The cast is unbelievably talented, working with Kenny Ortega is a dream and I feel really honored to be a part of such a beautiful show.
Q: Have you branched out or thought about branching out into other forms of art, such as singing or dancing, and why or why not?
A: I definitely have! Like I said, dancing has played such a huge roll in my life so I know that’s something I will continue to do and honestly, it’s the same with singing. I’ve written a couple of songs just to play around with a few ideas and I’m still very new to it haha! Coming out with original music sometime in the future is definitely something I could see myself doing.One thing I’d really love to do is also branch out into becoming a choreographer. I constantly make up choreography to different genres of music just as another outlet to create. Even though being in front of the camera and performing myself will always be my number one focus, I’d love to have that chance to choreograph one day.
Q: What has been the best part about playing Carrie in “Julie and The Phantoms”?
A: There are so many that it’s hard to pick just one! You know, I’ve never been given the chance to play the “mean girl” before so Carrie is a whole new ball game for me. I’ve always wanted to play this kind of role so I’m excited for people to see me do something different. Also, with Julie and The Phantoms being a musical series, being able to go through the process of recording the songs in the studio, learning the choreography and putting it on camera was such an incredible, new experience. One of the best parts is for sure our cast. I can honestly say that these are some of the most talented and kindhearted people I have ever met. They all bring something so incredibly special to the show, so I feel extremely lucky to get to work with each and every one of them.
Q: To anyone pursuing acting as a career, what would be your best piece of advice?
A: Never forget why you wanted to become an actor. I see a lot of people who enter the industry because they genuinely love to act, and they want to pursue it. Then as time passes, they begin to lose sight of that love and start focusing on wanting the fame. I honestly think social media plays a very big hand in that. People can get so wrapped up in their follower count that they forget why they started acting in the first place. If it doesn’t come from your heart and you’re not passionate about it, then why be in it at all?
Q: Who has been your greatest source of inspiration or support as you have risen up in the entertainment industry?
A: There’s a lot of people that have inspired me in this business and I look up to tons of different actors, directors, choreographers etc. So, I don’t think there’s one main source but there is definitely a mix of sources haha! As far as support goes, that is without a doubt my family. They all completely changed their lives to help me achieve my dreams and I know I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for them.
Q: How do you plan on growing your acting career in different directions?
A: I don’t think there is a set plan, but I definitely want to continue to challenge myself with new types of characters. Expanding your abilities in different ways is something I think every actor wants and hopes for. I do have some dream roles/projects that I still have on my bucket list so I guess we will just have to see what happens next!

Katie Welch, the music industry’s best-kept secret and next big thing, is set to release her brand new single titled “Sober” Sept. 4.
Based out of Los Angeles, Welch is more than just a triple threat. Singing, dancing, acting and hosting are just the tip of the iceberg for the activist and philanthropist.
She’s finally ready to burst onto the scene after performing for small groups of celebrities, and she will introduce her new album, “The New Renaissance,” to the world to announce her presence. The album will follow up her debut EP titled “Typical Psycho,” which was released in 2018.
Welch said “Sober,” the album’s most anticipated track, is about addiction, but doesn’t just cover substances.
“It’s also about how we allow other people to consume us; how we use our vices to supplement our longing. Toxic substances fill the hole of toxic relationships. By learning to love ourselves we can fill those holes, and to be ‘sober’ is to be whole,” she said.
Katie started performing at 2 years old and spent her childhood competitively dancing and singing in choirs, in a quartet and solo.
She first came to Los Angeles in 2010 in pursuit of a solo career, but after winning the premier season of “Off The Strip,” a singing competition in Hollywood, she took up hosting the show.
She also holds an annual Christmastime concert with multiple artists performing to benefit Toys for Tots. Additionally, she created C.A.P.E. Nation, a program under Boo2Bullying designed to empower children.
Welch said she finds music to be the best way to empower and connect us all.
“We are spiritual beings having a physical experience and we are all just matter and vibration and frequency, which is why music can affect us so deeply. Music has always been there for me in any experience I’ve ever had. I have written music for heartbreak, for healing, for hope and for pure fun and entertainment. It all serves its purpose,” Welch said. “My dream is to share the music in my heart with the world in hopes others can connect to it, to know they are not alone and realize how connected we all are.”
Combining all of her passions, like singing, dancing, performing and helping others, is what earned her the classic designation of a “Renaissance woman.”
That title inspired the name of her new album, and her music follows right along with her diverse interests.
Her vocals powerful vocals are inspired by artist like Ella Fitzgerald, Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse and Celine Dion while also taking notes from The Jacksons, Prince, Cher, Stevie Wonder and Christina Aguilera for her music as a whole.
“It never felt right for me to lock myself into one specific genre or to label myself in a finite way,” she said. “Genre crossover and blending has been happening in music for many years, and I’m excited to see where it moves to next.I believe the whole world is on the verge of a great new era of art, culture, philosophy and enlightenment, and I can’t wait to be a part of it.”
You can pre-save “Sober” on Spotify right now by clicking right here, and you can find it streaming everywhere Sept. 4.

TikTok, a phone app allowing users to share fun videos of singing, dancing and skits, has taken the world by storm, and Naz “Itsnastynaz” Saleh is its megastar.
Saleh, or “Itsnastynaz” on TikTok, was a completely ordinary fast food worker yet a complete anomaly. He was born on April 27, 1997, in Bronx, New York, and raised by his Yemeni-descendant parents looking for a better life for their kids. When he turned 12, he started working 12 hours per day, seven days per week. Saleh hit rock bottom when excessive bullying made him drop out of high school, but things changed.
Saleh went from working in fast food to being a man who enjoys all luxuries of life, but what made Naz Saleh who he is today?
It all started when Saleh was watching a YouTube video and a Musical.ly ad popped up. He saw the famous Baby Ariel. The video made him laugh and think he could do it even better than she could if he gave it a try. That was the turning point in his life. He started performing more skits with his brother in his workplace. He became an overnight success when the third video he uploaded was viewed 5 million times, and it didn’t stop there. The video spread like wildfire and was featured on news channels internationally.
His audience skyrocketed to over 6 million followers. He was awarded the “Popular Creator” badge by TikTok after his videos broke the internet and were viewed between 100 million and 350 million times.
That’s when he quit his 84-hour-per-week job to focus full time on his TikTok career. He now sits at 13 million followers.
Saleh is now known as “The Most Generous Man in New York” after filming himself giving food and money to homeless people. His videos also caught the attention of the government, giving some of those homeless people the option to go to rehab. Many said goodbye to their previous lives and moved toward a path of happiness.
Following his quick ascent, Saleh signed deals with iconic brands such as What Do You Meme? and Fashion Nova. He even received sponsorship deals from apps on the Apple App Store. He went from working in fast food to making seven figures and driving luxury cars all in a day’s work.
Though he has found success on TikTok, life isn’t always easy for Saleh. He receives many hateful comments online.
When asked how he deals with hateful comments, Saleh said, “Receiving so much hate can be heart-breaking and really demotivating. It used to have really bad effects on my mindset and my happiness until I realized making skits, helping people and making others happy is my safe place, and no one can make me feel bad about that.”
He admits sudden fame can be a bit overwhelming, but Saleh tries to remain positive, using his power to spread as much love and happiness as he can.
Sarah Silva is set to drop the next single “Somebody Like Me,” from her upcoming album which is set for release in September 2020, via Black Rabbit Entertainment.
“’Somebody Like Me’ about knowing that you are exactly what a certain someone needs. Their past experiences didn’t work out, but now they don’t need to look anymore because you’re here for them,” comments Sarah. “It’s also about feeling empowered with yourself, feeling so confident that you know you can do anything.”
A perfect follow-up to Sarah’s “False Illusions,” which was released in November, “Somebody Like Me,” pairs catchy pop lyrics with her sassy Latin vibe.
A household name in South and Central America, the bilingual singer has teamed up with producer, A-dubb (Anthony West), on an upcoming album. Inspired by artists like Rosalía with hints of Becky G, Sarah is ready to make a splash in the U.S. with her own unique brand of Latin pop music.
MORE ABOUT SARAH SILVA: Sarah’s journey truly began after taking 2nd place in the Mexican version of America Idol, La Academia Kids, at only 11 years old. The experience immersed her in six months of extensive training in singing, dancing and acting with some of the best teachers in the industry. After her participation in La Academia Kids she was casted as the namesake character in the theater play Miranda y Sus Dos Papas, where she was critically recognized for her enormous talent as a musical theater actress.
Sarah’s love of music is extensive and eclectic. She has been given the opportunity to perform a wide variety of songs from regional Mexican to R&B. In 2017, Sarah joined a social media incubator, Dosogas Team, through which she watched her socials skyrocket from tens of thousands to more than 800k in under a year. Known as the singer of the group, the incubator works to expose the young beauty to their millions of fans worldwide. She went on a world tour performing in top venues in Argentina, Paraguay, Mexico, Chile, and many others in Latin America.
Road trips are amazing. They are a cheaper way to travel in most cases, they offer you a different form of freedom, where you can stop wherever you please, and you get to see a lot more of the country you are driving through that on a flight.
There is only one inconvenience for passengers, what do to? Great conversation with your road trip colleagues is a part of the journey, without a doubt, but talking can only go so far. Or you are on a family road trip and would rather not talk to your sibling. You need to find new ways to keep yourself entertained during long drives. And here we have 5 of the best ways to stay entertained as a passenger.
Music can make or break a road trip. Having the right playlist is essential to a road trip. This can be in your headphones or playing DJ for the car on the stereo. There are now a variety of music streaming apps (make sure to have a phone car charger) giving you infinite music at your fingertips. You can choose an already made road trip playlist or start making yours the moment you know you are going on the trip.
This isn’t the old school travel box of chess and draughts with a magnetic board (although these also have a place in road trips). Here we mean interactive games with who is in your car. There are loads of different games you can play. “I Spy”, the “ABC Game” where you name things you see following the alphabet or “next to pee” where the next person who needs a toilet break buys the drinks or the snacks. There are plenty more, find one that suits you all.
Learn how to read a map or an atlas. This is a great way to look out for interesting places to stop while on the move. It makes the trip more improvised and interesting.
There are many and many apps designed to entertain you while on the go. From online casinos such as ComeOn, different games, karaoke apps. There is an app for everything today, so finding one to keep yourself entertained will not prove too difficult.
Read a book
Books might seem old school to the next generation of road trip travellers, but the reason they are still a thing must be enough to prove they have their place. If you are travelling far, an e-book is the best way to keep all your favourite reads on you while taking the minimal amount of space. This might not be for everyone, as many get car sickness. That will not improve your journey!
There are tons of ways to entertain you while on a long journey, and most thanks to advancements in technology. Find an app, online magazines, games, and so much more all at your fingertips with your smartphone.
