One Direction The TV Special on December 23rd, Hollywood Ending mention in Daily Star UK, Denyse Tontz in The Examiner, Frozen sales surge again, Dragon Heart 3 coming February 24th, Janel Parrish in Zombie Beach, Daniella Monet for Peta2

December 3rd, 2014

NBC joins forces with One Direction for One Direction: The TV Special, a primetime musical event set for Tuesday, December 23rd at 7pm CST.

One Direction’s first U.S. network special will offer a rare inside look at the wildly popular band through a combination of documentary material, comical stunts and musical performances. The special features exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the South American leg of their 2014 Where We Are Tour and follows the band as they recorded their new #1 album, Four, on the road. Viewers will also experience One Direction’s music as they stage a special intimate concert for lucky fans at Universal Orlando Resort, where the band performs a selection of songs from Four as well as some of the biggest hits off their three previous albums. The hour-long telecast also finds the boys giving unsuspecting fans the shock of their lives by introducing themselves in disguise at the theme parks, as well as the bandmates interviewing each other aboard a high-speed roller coaster.

Hollywood Ending got some nice press in the Daily Star UK. It included a mention of their new release and some great quotes from Chris about his brother James.

Actress, singer and songwriter Denyse Tontz is featured in a new Five Question Challenge at Examiner.com. In it she touches on growing up in the industry, the characters she’s portrayed, songwriting, 2015, and some words of advice.

Not only is the Frozen Soundtrack going to finish out 2014 as the #1 selling album, but it’s finishing extremely strong. According to data from last week, it sold over 60,000 copies – up 193 percent from the previous week. Sales for the recently released Frozen: The Songs were up 17 percent as well. Expect strong sales throughout the holidays! (source: HITS Digital Ventures)

Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer’s Curse will be available on Digital HD February 10th and on Blu-ray and DVD February 24th. This all new adventure stars Ben Kingsley as the voice of Drago.

Janel Parrish posted a photo on Instagram wearing Zombie Beach yesterday! The Pretty Little Liars star looked cute as she posed in her Yoloha hat ($25). Zombie Beach is a fun new line offering unique graphic tees, tanks and hats. The entire line is affordably priced, ranging from $15 – $30.

Wool-free mittens and caps, leather-free boots, and angora-free fuzzy sweaters … it’s beginning to feel a lot like a vegan Christmas! With more young people searching out trendy animal-free clothing than ever before, Nickelodeon star Daniella Monet stars in an exclusive new video for peta2, PETA’s youth division, in which she shares how vegan shopping is easier than ever—and as much fun as an episode of AwesomenessTV.

December 2nd, 2014

This week Taylor Swift’s latest, 1989, will return to #1 on the Billboard charts. As for One Direction, Four will most likely drop a few spots after opening at the top spot. So how were sales? You’ll just have to read this new article by Billboard that compares their first week sales against Backstreet Boys, ’N Sync, and Jonas Brothers. Don’t forget to read the comments, they’re quite entertaining.

New Releases

She & Him: Classics – Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward cover 13 classic songs including “Stay Awhile,” “Stars Fell On Alabama,” “Unchained Melody,” and more.

The Summer Set: Legendary: Deluxe Edition – featuring five additional tracks: “One Night,” “Welcome To The World,” “Slip Away,” “Accidental Billionaires,” and an alternate version of “Lightning In A Bottle.”

Yesterday, Demi Lovato took on the tabloids to state the facts via social media. If you only had a clue how often these sites only contain a hint of truth and a lot of fabrication. One more thing, when you visit them you play a part in employing the people that chase and harass your favorite stars around with digital cameras. At T2, we will NEVER purchase paparazzi photos.

Megan & Liz got some FaceTime last night on CMA’s Country Christmas.
