It’s the question I have gotten all my life: Why are you still single? OK, I get it. Yes, it’s super flattering to hear that you think I am “pretty enough” (exact quote from my Saturday night, thanks, I guess) to be coupled up. And, yes, I can form complete sentences (most of the time). And, yes, on occasion I’ve even been known to have a small amount of charm, an ounce of wit and, don’t mean to brag, but I make a mean spaghetti and meatballs. Of course, anyone who asks that question most likely isn’t doing it out of concern, but more so to figure out what, exactly, is wrong with me. Well, on behalf of every other girl without a bae, allow me to offer one simple answer:…

CARSON LUEDERS And that’s saying something. It’s been more than a decade since the 18-year-old launched his self-titled YouTube channel and started posting acoustic covers of his favorite songs. Now, more than a million YouTube subscribers later, plus 120 million video views and a co-starring role on Brat TV’s hit Chicken Girls, Carson is ready to release what he says is his greatest work yet. “I’m really excited to enter a new lane with the music, because it’s a little bit different than what I have been doing,” he says. “My music can be anywhere from Ed Sheeran to The Weeknd. Sometimes, I strip it down to an acoustic ballad, but I also love hip-hop.” No matter what genre his songs fall into, there’s one thing they have in common: They all come straight…

YOUR WOW-WORTHY WINTER MUSIC SELENA GOMEZ, SG2 It’s been five long years since Selena Gomez released her last full-length album, Revival. Sure, she’s dropped a handful of singles since then, but with “Lose You to Love Me” and “Look at Her Now,” she’s officially kicking off a new musical era. Selena revealed last fall that the album is basically her diary from the last few years, set to music, so we fully expect to be playing it on repeat all winter long. JAN. 10 SEVENTEEN’S ODE TO YOU TOUR K-pop fans rejoice. Seventeen (aka SVT) is kicking off its first-ever U.S. tour this year. The 13-member group is starting the North American leg of their Ode To You tour in New Jersey before traveling west to wow fans with live renditions of their hits, like…

THE LIBRARY OF LOST THINGS BY LAURA TAYLOR NAMEY INKYARD PRESS, $19 Darcy is a literary genius who spends most of her time lost in a world of books, memorizing entire passages from her favorite novels.

As her family faces eviction, Darcy’s spirits are lifted by new boy Asher Fleet, a shattered teen pilot with a broken future. Suddenly, Darcy finds a reason to begin her own story.

Siwa is on top of the world (but what else is new, right?). After wowing millions with her D.R.E.A.M. The Tour last year, the 16-year-old triple threat is hitting the road yet again. In 2020, she’ll add another 50 dates to the tour, kicking off in Australia before heading stateside in March. We snagged JoJo before she headed Down Under for five quick questions. Girls’ Life: Do you ever surprise fans during your shows? Yes! I love inviting super fans backstage. We always just tell them, “Hey, the dancers want to meet you,” and they don’t know that they’re going to meet me. They always end up going crazy. It’s amazing. How can fans stand out from the crowd and really grab your attention? Do your homework! I’m always excited to see…

You know Matt Sato as Robbie Robbins in Brat TV’s mega hit Chicken Girls, but this 18-year-old star has more than just acting cred. The Hawaii native also has written and directed a short film—and is a legit singer, too. We caught up with Matt to talk about his latest projects, his thoughts on being a celebrity—and his most awkward kissing scene. TRUE FEELINGS There’s a not-so-hidden message to Matt’s GF, actress Tori Keeth, in his single “me 4 u.” “[Tori] would tell me all the time, ‘You need to better communicate with me how you feel.’ I would never really explain how I felt about things. So, I wrote the song as my way of saying that I’m going to do my best to be totally honest and communicate everything…
