Charlie Puth is well known for his song “We Don’t Talk Anymore” featuring artist Selena Gomez. Charlie now has a newly released song, “Attention“, which has quickly become a hit. I myself, am a huge fan of Mr. Puth and when I started going through all of his songs I was surprised to see when he actually started his career as a singer and it’s great to see where he was and where he is now.
Let’s take it back a little and review the evolution of Charlie Puth.
Charlie Puth years in review:
2009: Charlie first started making YouTube videos in 2009, his old channel has since been deleted.

Bruce Springsteen and Chris Martin perform with U2 band at World AIDs Day concert in Times Square.
Monday night, Bruce Springsteen and Chris Martin performed in place of Bono with the U2 band at a surprise concert for World AIDs Day in Times Square. Bono, lead singer of U2, was injured last month in a biking accident that has made him unable to do any performances at the moment. Luckily, U2 was able to appear at the concert with more than suitable men for the job! Watch the video of Springsteen/ Martin/ U2 rock duo rock out!

Nick Jonas has officially confirmed that he is NO LONGER A VIRGIN. Nick, who is most famous for being one of the Jonas Brothers, told Wendy Williams he has removed his purity ring and says he is an adult now, ” I think that it was an important part of my childhood, and it was that,” Nick said. “I think as I grew up and sort of figured out what was important to me and my own belief system, which we all grow up, we all live life and find out what’s important to us—that’s what happened.
Nick has been dating former Miss Universe, Olivia Culpo, for over a year now and says he is extremely happy. His new single “Jealous” is actually written about Culpo and how he gets jealous when other guys check his girl out, “”We went out one night and this guy was looking at her for a little too long,” he recalled to. “It was uncomfortable. I’m not a jealous person and this was an experience that I was one or two drinks in. I really got into it and then I decided to let me just process this a different way and go into the studio and write this song.”
Nick Jonas is definitely turning into more of a sexual symbol and solo artist rather than a “Jo Bro”! What do you guys think about his new transformation?
Bono, lead singer of U2, broke his arm in six places, fractured eye socket, hand, and shoulder blade from a severe bicycle accident on Sunday. According to BBC News, Bono was trying to avoid another rider when the accident happened. He has since undergone a 5- hour surgery to repair his heavily damaged arm with three metal plates and 18 screws.
U2 was scheduled to do a one- week appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, but they have had to post pone this until Bono is recovered.
Luckily, Bono is expected to have a full recovery, “We’re sure he’ll make a full recovery soon, so we’ll be back!” said his bandmates The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr.
Last month, Taylor Swift was surprisingly named “New York’s Tourism Ambassador” after living in New York a little less than one year! Obviously, Swift got an ear full from New Yorkers and harsh critics who do not approve of her getting this honor. However, Billy Joel is helping Taylor “shake it off” by telling USA Today that he welcomes the singer, “You snoots. Let her in. That’s what New York is all about. I say, ‘Welcome.”
Swift just released her new album 1989 with Welcome To New York as the opening track. Billy Joel praises her ability to write songs and inspire people with her music, “She catches a lot of junk, maybe because she’s so popular with young girls,” he continued. “But I like what she’s projecting. I respect what she’s doing.”
Who would have thought Billy Joel would be the one to openly and publicly stand up for Taylor Swift?! We love it!
Halloween is usually a time for celebrities to show off their creativity and, usually for women, sexuality. Katy Perry’s Halloween costume, a flaming hot Cheeto, pokes fun at the pun of being creative and also “hot”. She definitely got everybody’s attention this year and stole the show for celebrity Halloween costumes! We think it is definitely the most creative and comical costume we’ve seen…
Katy Perry dressed as a “flaming hot” Cheeto for Halloween 2014
Katy Perry, known for her outrageously unique costumes on and off the stage, gave everybody just what they wanted this Halloween- a giggle! Just because Halloween is over does not mean listening to some Halloween classics is unacceptable….. and If this costume doesn’t make you want to sing along to Rick James’s “Super Freak”, we don’t know what will!
