5 Fast Facts about actor Travis Bryant

Travis Bryant is an American actor who you might recognize from the CW’s supernatural series Legacies or Nickelodeon’s The Adventures of Kid Danger, BET’s American Soul, YouTube RED’s digital series Weird City, as well as Sofia the First as fan-favorite character Tyler in Season 4.

His latest is the faith-based film ‘Breakthrough’ starring Marcel Ruiz, Topher Grace, and Chrissy Metz which just became available on BluRay and DVD on July 16th and can also be found on most digital platforms for download and purchase. He also resumes shooting on Legacies in Atlanta soon.

Here’s 5 fast facts about Travis!

His show was nominated for a Teen Choice Award.

Honestly being a part of two projects that I’ve been passionate about for the past two years and seeing them both get the recognition they deserve, as well as to be so well received by the fans to be nominated for #TeenChoiceAwards is pretty rewarding in itself. 

There is one kindergarten lesson which still holds true for him today.

The golden rule: treat others the way you wish to be treated. I’m a huge believer in energy and I believe that the energy we put out in the world has a unique way of finding its way back to us in a full circle kind of way. So simply putting kindness and positivity in the world is the most efficient way to receive it back and I’d try to exemplify that in my actions and in everything that I do. 

He’s the guy you always complain about regarding texting.

For as often as I am on my phone, I suck at texting a response to people. My friends, my costars, and even my family is always getting onto me about how I need to be better at replying to people’s messages. 

Be flexible and do what you say if you want to be his pal.

Hypocrisy and people who are unwilling to change are both kinda tied up there in my top 2 pet peeves but they also go hand in hand with each other. 

One food he refuses to eat is ___?

Octopus, thank u next.

5 Fast Facts about Country Singer-Songwriter Queeva

15year-old up-and-coming songstress QUEEVA has released her first album How Do You Know on July 12. She co-wrote every track on the album with mentor and hit songwriter Jamie O’Neal, who is also credited as producer of the album.

Born in Chicago, IL, QUEEVA was raised with five siblings in a creative Irish clan speaking both Gaelic and English and dividing her time between the US and Ireland. In fact, her name, sometimes spelled Caoimhe, means, “gentle,” “beautiful” or “precious” in that language.  Early on, QUEEVA gravitated to Country music’s greatest storyteller-artists who were skilled in illumining their everyday experiences in a song.

In addition to music, she’s also appeared on Nickelodeon’s Fresh Faces, Chicago Fire, a Build-a-Bear commercial, and others.

Here’s 5 fast facts about Queeva.

Although she is very young, one of her songs reflects deep personal loss.

My song “You’re Still Here” had a big impact on me because I wrote that song when I was 9 years old and I wrote it about my aunt that had passed away who was really special to me. It was just really hard because it would bring that memory back that she wasn’t there. Then when I rerecorded it, that is when my grandma passed away so it was really hard for me but I’m really glad with how the song turned out. It has a really special place in my heart because I think of them whenever I play it.

The most surprising thing she experienced while recording the album is ________

I think being surprised on how cool and different each song on the album turned out and when you get in the studio and you bring a song that you’ve written and seeing how it comes to life is so cool.

One of her acting gigs was surreal.

I guess you could say one of the weirdest things was when I was on Chicago Fire (well, it’s not weird but it was weird to me because I wasn’t used to it), but I had my own trailer and it had a star on it with my name and it had a bed, a fire place — it was just crazy! It was so cool!

She’s a former Irish dancer.

I was actually an Irish dancer for about four years. It was a lot of fun but I couldn’t really juggle everything I was doing at the same time so unfortunately I had to give it up. But yeah! Most people don’t know that about me!

There’s one treat she loves above all others.

I love ice cream. Like all day every day I could eat it. It’s just so good! I really love ice cream. Ha!

 “Spending time with my siblings and swimming!”

5 Fast Facts about Singer-Songwriter LiLi Joy

16-year-old singer-songwriter LiLi Joya member of Team Blake on NBC’s The Voice this past season is releasing EP of original music titled Colours You Can’t See on Wednesday, August 14th featuring her previously released songs “Float” and “Sink” along with new track “Glow.”

“Sink,” LiLi Joy’s debut single that dropped in June, is an alluring song about feeling trapped in your own head, that pairs a stark and stripped vocal performance with a thudding bass line and loose distorted guitar riff. A love song, “Float” is about admiration and love for someone in the purest form, ebbing and flowing in warm waves from a jazzy swing into a hypnotic hook upheld by her shimmering, soulful delivery. Lastly, piano, violin and bass shine through on “Glow,” a song about vulnerability and being scared of showing the ones you love how you truly feel.

Here’s 5 fast facts about LiLi!

Being on The Voice made her work harder than she ever had.

I think the biggest benefit I received from being on The Voice was the HUGE impact practicing every single day can have on your skill levels! I saw so much improvement while I was there; it was a like music bootcamp.

If she had a magic fairy wand that could pass just ONE spell, it would be __________.

Hmmm, I think I would give people the gift of happiness, even if it was only for a day. I hate seeing the people I love in a bad mental state. If they’re having a bad day, then I can’t seem to have a good one.

3. One food she refuses to eat is___________.

PICKLES!!! So gross. 

Fall is her fav season.

I love fall! Hopes are high, the school year is new, the candles smell great, and Halloween is around the corner.

She is excited about her EP.

My debut EP, Colours You Can’t See is set to release on August 14! This project is about painting with the emotions we deal with every day, but the world can’t see. Even pain can be used for something beautiful.

Right now I’m just writing music and doing some work on my computer! <3

5 Fast Facts about singer-songwriter Penelope Robin

Penelope Robin is an 11-year-old singer-songwriter from Miami, Florida. She began acting as well as developing her musical calling at the age of 5. Her YouTube channel has reached over 10 Million views and her social media continues to grow.

This young talent has already shared the stage with music icons such as Phil Collins, Karol G, Yandel, Fat Joe, amongst others. Currently, she is working on new music she will be releasing this year for her fans to enjoy. She is also actively involved with various Foundations such as Crystal Academy, 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida, and Celebration of the Sea; engaging, educating, and inspiring others about autism awareness, animal cruelty, and protecting our environment. She’ll also be heading to NY for a string of dates this Summer!

Here’s Five Fast Facts about Penelope Robin.

She loves chick peas, or as she likes to call them, “garbanzos”

I looove garbanzos so much! I get cans of chick peas and serve them all in a bowl by themselves with salt and pepper and just have that for lunch or dinner sometimes! lol

She’s got a big heart and loves to inspire.

I feel very humbled every time someone reaches out and tells me that I inspire them to play an instrument or to follow their dreams, so I hope that through my music I can also inspire people in other ways. It’s so easy to be kind to others, specially those that may need a little more love, or to be better to our planet and animals. All we need to do is try! I have a song I wrote for Earth Day called “World full of Love” about how “all we need is hope and a world full of love!”

She’s competed in the Junior Olympics.

I used to swim competitively with my brother (who swims amazing!) and I made it to the Junior Olympics once! I didn’t do very well but I was so proud because I had pushed myself really hard and challenged myself to make the cut, so reaching that goal felt really great!

The first concert she ever went to was her own.

Haha….yes. I had never been to a concert in my life! I had just turned ten and I got invited to sing for a huge family concert with thousands of people in Buga, Colombia opening up for Karol G! I was so nervous and excited all at once! I remember they sang the National Anthem and then announced me and there I was…on the same stage as Yandel, Cosculluela and Karol G singing my heart out and speaking in Spanish (which I dont’ do too well!) lol It was an amazing experience! I can’t wait to be back in Colombia because everyone was so special and kind to me!

One of her first gigs landed her in someone’s living room as an art piece — talking to a live owl!

Yes! When I was about 5 I was asked to be in different videos, including an art video which had me doing a monologue having a conversation with an owl. Yes, a live owl! This was an art video to be presented during Art Basel and it turns out it sold! Soooo…. I am in someone’s living room in a video talking to an owl! If anyone ever meets the owner of this video you HAVE to message me and let me know you saw it! hahaha

BONUS: Penelope is terrified of cruises!

Get to Know Hashtag Zoe (Zoe Nazarian)

Meet Zoe Nazarian! Zoe is a rising, teen social media star whose comedic and relatable content will make you want to be her BFF!! You can find Zoe on any given social media app @HashtagZoe. Be sure to follow her! We recently got the chance to get to know her a little better. Come get to know her with us!

Scroll for our Q&A with Hashtag Zoe!

How did you get your start?

I got my start on Youtube when I was 13 years old, after trying to break into mainstream entertainment wasn’t as successful as I’d hoped. I decided to try something on my own.

When I was going from audition to audition, I found that most of the parts were going to very skinny girls. At the time, the industry was looking for small & thin actors to fit into what was perceived as normal. I was a curvy girl and proud of it.

These days, the entertainment industry is a lot more inclusive of all sorts of different, “real,” people and I’m here for it. Once I really started posting content, I fell in love with it. I also love the idea of having my own platform where I can maybe make a difference in this world.

What is your favorite type of video to film?

I like to create characters! It allows me to film full scenario videos, without having to cast other people! I also love a good parody video!

The Youtube Psychic:

What’s your favorite social media app to post on?

That’s a really hard question, because I’m on the majority of the social media apps out there! I think my top five are: Youtube, Instagram, PopJam, TikTok and Likee.

Fave songs on your Spotify playlist?

I love music. Like I’m literally connected to my Spotify ALL THE TIME….except when I sleep, because that would be weird. My current top five faves are:

Bad Guy, Billie Eilish ft. Justin Bieber

Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m bored, Arianna Grande

Money in the Grave, Drake

No Guidance, Chris Brown, ft. Drake

Sunday Best, Surfaces

Does Billie Eilish Have a Twin Sister? :

You just recently graduated from high school….any advice for teens, because they wanna know (see what we did there?) : )

School is hard sometimes. And I don’t even mean that it’s hard because of homework and tests! The whole social scene in school is just hard! It took me a long time, but I finally realized that you don’t have to be friends with everyone and not everyone has to like you. That was a big lesson for me.

I seemed to attract drama in both middle school and high school and it made going to school more emotional than it should have been. I made a video about it…I know, shocking!

What I Really Learned in High School:

What makes you laugh?

Memes and ASMR videos make me laugh. Also, my friends make me laugh. I love hanging out with my BFFs and just laughing about nothing in particular and then laughing because we’re laughing so hard!

What makes you cry?

Everything makes me cry! I’m a teenaged girl!

Things Girls Do:

Any advice for teens who want to try for a career on social media?

The best advice that was given to me was to be creative and consistent. Most people don’t just explode in success overnight. There are those lucky few who go viral. But for most, it needs to be a consistent growth.

There are lots of times that I get frustrated, because I just want everything to fall into place. But I try to keep my eye on the prize. I know that I need to stay motived, focused and engaging in order to succeed. Also, a support system is a must. Make sure you surround yourself with people who want the best for you and are willing to help you get to your goals.

5 Fast Facts about Instagram star OfficialNakia (Nakia Jenkins)

Instagram star Nakia Jenkins, better known as @OfficialNakia, is an American social media video creator, Instagram personality and influencer from Montgomery, Alabama. He is most popular for his funny videos reacting to beauty content on Instagram and has amassed 250,000+ followers.

What’s surprising about Nakia is that he does not have a huge YouTube presence, choosing to focus on Instagram. Find out why, and a few other interesting tidbits, in the following 5 Fast Facts about Official Nakia!

He’s made Instagram a real money-maker.

I chose to use Instagram for my content because the monetization rates for creators on YouTube are nowhere near the income I make as an influencer on Instagram with stories and videos I am paid to promote for various brands and companies. 

He has an awesome plan to use his influence to help people.

My overall goal is to segway into some sort-of life coaching/motivational speaking career. Where I can use the fame I gathered as an influencer to work to bring happiness and joy to others. I want to use my talents to help others.

There’s one video of his he really loves.

My favorite video of myself is https://www.instagram.com/p/BbNi-6VgIym/?igshid=wgt0kq82pa9r a reaction to a bloody creepy makeup look. I am a beauty influencer and know a lot about this area, and seeing something makeup related that made me gag is hilarious to me

He needs his alone time.

Something people would be surprised to know about me is that I am an introvert more so than an extrovert. That is part of why I love social media because I recharge and do my best work alone, but that does not mean that I am not social and I still love talking to everyone. I just need my alone time to recharge .

He would love to collab with________.

I would most like to collaborate with the Queen of Memes Miss Jasmine Masters. Every video she makes turns into a meme and I would love to get to work with and learn from someone who could help take my content to the next level.

My favorite content creators besides myself are Shane Dawson, Pew Die Pie, and Jefree Star. All are rolemodels of how far I aspire to make it in the entertainment industry.

No slaw please.

The one food I REFUSE to eat is coleslaw. Point blank period.

5 Fast Facts about singer and actress Megan Nicole

Singer-songwriter and actress Megan Nicole has recently made the jump from teen idol to adulthood in a big way, with her getting married, buying her first home and even becoming a pet parent. These rapid changes left her a little overwhelmed and wishing she had a sort of handbook which was the inspiration for the concept of Adult(ed), a YouTube show where Megan and a guest tackle a new subject with the help of an expert on the topic.

From throwing a fancy dinner party and working out anywhere to figuring out taxes, Megan hopes viewers will learn something new and will leave each episode feeling confident about taking action to live a more positive life. Older teens will definitely find something of value as these are the things you wish you knew but weren’t taught in school!

Here’s 5 Fast Facts about Megan!

Photo credit Nathan Tecson

She wishes someone had told her just ONE thing about adulthood.

When it comes to the whole “adulting” thing, I really wish someone told me that it’s okay to not have it all together and that you will constantly be learning. In a lot of ways, just knowing that you don’t have to have the Pinterest-perfect house and know everything about everything takes a lot of the pressure off. We’re all figuring it out together.

Besides her show, she is still working on tracks.

I’ve been working a lot on new music! I’ve been really excited about the things I’m working on right now.

Her best showbiz moment was meeting someone who introduced her to her future husband–awww!

There have been a lot of moments that meant a lot to me, from living out my childhood dreams of being on Disney Channel when I performed at an RDMA pre-show, to interviewing Michelle Obama, to performing for 20,000 people. But, funny enough a little music video that I did for a song of mine called “Safe With Me” meant the most. Through that music video I met someone who introduced me to my husband Cooper!

Though she seems to have it all together–she suffers from anxiety.

Photo credit Nathan Tecson

Something people might be surprised to know about me is that even though I love to be positive, I’ve had some hard moments with anxiety. I think it’s really great that the conversation has opened up more around this topic. It’s so important to be able to have discussions on it and know you aren’t alone! 

She likes to drink something pretty weird.

Coffee lemonade! I know it’s sounds bizarre, but it’s so yummy.

My new song “Bring Me Down” is about not letting the haters get to you.  You should follow your dreams no matter what and not let anyone’s negativity stop you. It’s a super important message for everyone to remember so they can fulfill their potential!  It has a great beat so it’s a perfect song to dance to at all the summer parties.

I’d love to be an entrepreneur with my own brand! I also like helping the animals so I would love to have some sort of animal sanctuary. Who knows, I could still do that!

Her biggest pet peeve is_________________

People who jump to conclusions and won’t even bother listening to both sides of the story.

I am a bit of a germophobic, lol.  I wash my hands all the time and carry hand sanitizer everywhere!

She’s got a video coming up!

I’m currently working on a concept for the music video for my new song “Bring Me Down” but shh.  Also, always working on new music. 🙂
