Cheddar has been covering the biggest news of the week with some of the biggest names. In case you missed it, we've pulled together some of the highlights that will keep you informed as we get ready for the week ahead.
Kevin Jonas Talks 'Claim to Fame'
Cheddar News was a hub for all things Jonas Brothers this week. Singer Kevin Jonas told us about his hosting duties on the show Claim to Fame, alongside his brother Frankie. The show follows celebrity relatives who live together — similar to the style of CBS' Big Brother — but have their identities concealed as they try to figure out who their castmates are. Jonas said being able to work with his brother has allowed them to grow closer. "It's been really great. We're 13 years apart in our life so we don't spend all of that much time together, and we haven't really worked together that much, so being able to do this is a reward because we got to spend so much time together," he said.
Joe Jonas on DNCE and 'Devotion'
Singer Joe Jonas appeared on the program just days after his brother to dish about his band DNCE and the success that their covers of other artists' music has garnered. He also talked about his film debut in Devotion. "It was an amazing film to be a part of," Jonas told Cheddar News. "It's a beautiful story about a band of brothers in the Korean War, famously known [as] the Forgotten War. We lost a lot of lives in that war, and it's a beautiful tragic story with a lot of heart."
Skyh Black on Acting Success, BET+ Shows
Actor Skyh Alvester Black joined Cheddar's Baker Machado and Hena Doba to discuss season two of the hit BET+ series All The Queen's Men. He also talked about how his previous career as a backup dancer for Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, and Rihanna helped prepare him for his role and noted his previous work with Tyler Perry its help in catapulting his career. "If you can be successful at Tyler Perry Studios, you can be successful anywhere" Black told Cheddar News. "Some may say the directing style is a little bit unconventional but it makes you a beast of a craftsman to where you can do anything. I feel like I can do anything once I leave."
LeAnn Rimes Talks New Music
Country music singer LeAnn Rimes told us about her new album god's work and what inspired her to create the project, telling Cheddar's Hena Doba that this project, her 19th studio album, is not only a celebration, but an opportunity to look back at how far she's come after 26 years in the business. She also talked about where she wants to go as an artist in the future. "We just celebrated this great past and I feel like god's work is really kind of the defining moment of my future as an artist and the messages I want to be putting into the world and hopefully inspiring people to go on this roller coaster ride of emotions with me through this album because it's definitely a ride," Rimes said.
