I just got off the phone with Selena Gomez and Joey King!

Wow!  What a great call!

During the interview Selena and Joey told me what the most daring thing they’ve ever done was, what Selena does in her downtime, and I learned when Selena’s next album is going to be released.
The girls were so sweet and took time to talk even though they are attending the Premios Juventud Awards Show in Miami tonight.  I will post some Q&A here as I transcribe them a bit later.

Joey King is the cutest thing.  I couldn’t help but to smile and giggle a lot during the interview as she’s so enthusiastic and energetic.

Selena Gomez and Joey King Interview Q & A:

Q: What is your favorite thing to do in your down time?

Selena’s Answer:
I love my family.. being with my family. I like to hang out with my family and friends, have fun, and eat junk food.

Q: What is the most daring thing you’ve ever done?

Joey King’s answer:
“I went indoor skydiving!  It was so fun!”
Selena Gomez’s answer: “I think my job is pretty daring.  Don’t you think getting up on stage in front of thousands of people and performing is daring?”, she said.  As a matter of fact, I do!

Q: What was your favorite scene to film for Ramona and Beezus?

Both girls said that the ‘bedroom scene’ was their favorite. I guess you’ll have to see the movie to know what the bedroom scene is!

Q: Do you get nervous before going on stage?  How do you deal with nervous feelings?

Selena Gomez’s answer: “I get nervous all of the time.”  Selena’s Mom taught her to use the feeling of nervousness.  Selena likes to talk about her nervous feelings before a show or shoo

Q: Is the movie based on one Ramona and Beezus book?

Both girls answered: The movie is based on key moments in 7 Ramona and Beezus books of which there are thousands.

More interview details coming soon.

Fun News & Giveaway: What celebrities did before becoming famous

I stumbled across this information this morning, not sure how, and had to share it with you.  I find some of the pre-celebrity jobs fascinating such as the coffin polishing __________ (ya’ gotta keep reading!).   Do you know what a celebrity did before becoming famous? What about Prince, Kate Gosselin (yes, her), or Tom Cruise<UPDATE:  The celebrities I listed have all been listed by now.. be creative in your celebrity search! Do the research and leave the info, including a link to the source, in the comments below and I will give one random commenter a $10 Amazon.com gift certificate!  Entries will be accepted until 10pm May 29th and I will announce the winner right here in this post!

Whoopi Goldberg was a bricklayer.  That’s a tough job!

Russell Crowe was a waiter.  I’m sure he got some great tips from the ladies.

Gwen Stefani’s previous job was as a Dairy Queen cleaner.  Wacky huh?

Johnny Depp was a telemarketer!  What a bummer..wasting his good looks by sitting in a cubicle bugging people on the phone.

Pink was a McDonald’s worker.

Simon Cowell worked in the post room.

Madonna worked in a doughnut factory.  WHAT?

Colin Farrell was a dance teacher.  Not the suspected sexy kind of dancing.. line dancing!

Barack Obama was an ice cream seller.  How much more ‘all-American’ can you get?

Geri Halliwell, pre Spice Girls, was a Turkish game show hostess.  Huh, can you picture that?

Brad Pitt was a chicken dancer for a Mexican restaurant.  His job was to entice people to eat at the restaurant.  Couldn’t he have just stood there as himself, not a chicken?

Harrison Ford was a carpenter.  I can’t really vision that one.

Sean Connery was a coffin polisher.  I can vision that.

Annie Lennox was a waitress at a cafe in North London.

The actor showed off pics of his new twins Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip with wife Rebecca Romijn when he co-hosted “Live With Regis and Kelly” on Friday. Take a look at this cute proud father!

They were born on December 28th and it looks like they’re already smiling! He said he already knows how to properly change their diapers — front to back. As for his beautiful wife, he (smartly) gives her all the props: “I have to give a lot of kudos to my wife. [She] is now waking up every three hours and doing what we call the ‘Double Football.’ They eat at the same time!”
