Celebrity Ologist: Anoop Desai, Week Three

It’s been a crazy busy couple of weeks. The first of three albums I’m putting out this year came out last Wednesday. Zero.0 is the beginning of a big push for me this year, and I’m really excited and proud of this first album. It’s not quite all work though. One of my best friends is getting married this week, so I had a bachelor party to break some of the work up. I’ve also been trying to get to know my new home of Atlanta. My parents have come down to visit and I’ve been hosting friends from home at my place a couple times a month. The NBA Playoffs have been on, and the weather has been perfect for getting out and ushering in spring on one of the many patios in the Virginia Highlands.

“It’s always wonderful when I get to come back home, ” she said. “Every time I come home to North Carolina, it makes me feel so good to know people here are lifting me up. It means a lot to me.”

Chris Colfer on ‘Glee, ‘ His Many Projects & How His Sister Keeps Him Humble

If you weren’t aware of who Chris Colfer was a year ago, you probably know who he is now. He won a Golden Globe for his role as Kurt Hummel on the smash FOX hit ‘Glee, ‘ and Kurt has been featured prominently in a storyline about bullying this season.

But that’s not all; Colfer also signed a deal to write a live-action pilot for the Disney Channel called ‘The Little Leftover Witch, ‘ and ‘Struck By Lightning, ‘ a movie based on his screenplay, is going into pre-production with Colfer as one of the stars.
