It seems like just yesterday I was on the red carpet at the ‘Glee 3D Concert Movie’ Premiere in Los Angeles reporting for Celebuzz with my fellow intern Diana, waiting to see one of my celebrity crushes Mr. Cory Monteith. I didn’t know if it was his perfectly quaffed hair or how beautiful he looked in person but he had my heart fluttering the moment I saw him step out of his car.

So once I heard about him passing away I’m sure you can only imagine how stunned and heartbroken I was.

I wish I could say it wasn’t so… but it is (TEAR).

Here’s what I know so far:

The 31-year-old was found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver, Canada after missing his check-out time Saturday July 13.

Vancouver police confirmed this tragic information saying, There were others with Mr. Monteith in his room earlier last night [July 12], but video and fob key entries show him returning to his room by himself in the early morning hours and we believe he was alone when he died. When he missed his check-out time, staff went to the room at noon and found his body.”

Monteith is said to have been deceased for quite a few hours before his body was discovered, which makes it even worse.

Although an official cause of death has yet to be determined, some believe drugs may be behind this tragic loss.

I’m sure more details will be coming our way within the next few days.

For now… thoughts and prayers go out to Cory’s family and friends as well as my fellow gleeks out there!

Zayn Malik Leaving One Direction… For Good?

It seems as though Zayn Malik has been living up to his notorious bad boy persona after ex Australian stripper, Courtney Webb, got her two minutes of fame after revealing she slept with the 20-year-old despite of him dating Perrie Edwards.

But Malik just might be saying enough is enough!

Now, for all you directioners… you may want to sit down for this one!

Because has reported that 1D’s record label management fears that Zayn is “on the brink of walking away from the band.”

The source claims that the hunk has been “in a haze” as he’s been trying to get out of the media’s spotlight following the cheating reports.

But one of the hardest parts for him is being away from his very close knit family, the insider continued.

With word spreading like wildfire around the bands record label, Simon Cowell felt it was time to step in and take action. According to Celebuzz the oh so famous XFactor judge is “promising he will not overwork Malik or his bandmates Harry StylesLouis TomlinsonLiam Payne and Niall Horan. Cowell has even offered Malik extra time off.”

But with being in one of the biggest boy bands in the entire world, comes a lot of time on the road. And unfortunately for Zayn, 2013 seems even busier then 2012 was… by a lot! They’ve already kicked off the new year with their very first trip to Japan, and now they’re getting ready for their tour which starts in London on Feb. 23rd and won’t end until Nov. 3rd in Japan. And with that, One Direction is setting up to promote their highly anticipated 3D movie which is geared to hit theaters in August.

So for now Malik “feels that the last six months have been his toughest yet in the band,” the insider reveals.

“Even before the cheating scandal, Zayn was steering clear of nights out with his bandmates and sometimes would skip media events. He has been quite low at several points when being away for key family celebrations. But his pals have cheered him up. People forget he is the shyest member.”

No matter if you are the shyest person or most outgoing, being in one of the biggest bands EVER comes with a price. And for some, it’s the battle to keep that squeaky clean image.

“Every step 1D makes is scrutinized and judged by the public and media. Their reputation as role models to teens is also weighing heavy on his shoulders as it is not natural for him to be bright, bubbly and smiley twenty-four seven.”

According to the insider, poor Zayn feels as though HE himself has ruined One Direction’s reputation after Courtney Webb decided to post a picture of Malik while he was sleeping to prove to the world that she did indeed sleep with him.

“Zayn feels that being caught out with Courtney has made the band look bad, and is still worried about how bosses will react in the long run.

But no matter how hard Webb, 21, tried to defeat him, Malik ran into Perrie’s arms to confess to his mistakes.

It really sent him into a tail spin. He had a mixture of emotions — guilt for his cheating, anger for being led astray by the girl, shame for the world finding out, upset at how his bandmates and management would react and doubt about whether he would still have a place in the band.”

So what did his management think about everything that has happened the last few weeks?

“No one in the management wants Zayn to leave or even consider quitting, with days to go before their biggest tour ever. He is a lovely, caring and funny chap — but there is no doubt fame has changed his outlook,“

And as for his family…

“Some feel he is in a fragile state,” the source said. “There are certain members of his family who have told him if he is unhappy with the money made so far he could walk away.”

So after catching your breath, and possibly wiping away a few tears, how would you feel if Zayn did decide to walk away from One Direction? Sound off below!

Glee the 3D Concert Movie Premieres in Los Angeles

Hold on to your seats and channel your inner ‘Gleek’ because it’s going to be a bumpy ride. The cast of Glee is coming to a big screen near you! And even better … they will be in 3D!

That’s right, Glee lovers! Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Darren Criss and the rest of the Glee gang will be making their very first film appearance together in one of the most anticipated movies of the summer – Glee the 3D Concert Movie! The New Directions took Los Angeles by storm on Saturday night to premiere their movie — and Celebuzz was on the red carpet to get the 4-1-1 on the movie excitement, fashion and everything in between.

The film, which hits theaters on August 12th for a two week run, features all of your favorite glee club members live in concert, giving fans a little taste of what their live show has to offer.

On the red carpet, Lea Michele showed that she clearly doesn’t take fashion tips from her alter ego, Rachel Berry. She stole the show as she waltzed her way through the carpet looking lovely in a black lace corset dress from Marchesa, something she claims is “very different” than what she’s used to wearing on the show.

As the Glee phenomenon continues to take over the world, Lea took the time to credit all the Gleeks out there for making this possible, stating:

We just have the most amazing fans, so all that we do is for them. It’s a universal thing that people can respond to.

The New Directions weren’t the only famous glee club walking the red carpet, though. Noticeably present alongside the stars of the hit television series were Darren Criss and the Dalton Academy Warblers (who had nothing but nice things to say about their glee club leader). The Warblers gushed:

It’s been absolutely amazing to be surrounded by this kind of talent. Darren is incredible. He’s not just an amazing actor, he’s good at everything. It’s not just him, but it’s everybody on the show.

Darren Criss was recently upgraded to a season regular, and we can’t wait to see if this Warbler will finally join his on-screen boyfriend, Chris Colfer, at McKinley High this season. Which begs the question: Will fans be seeing more of the Warblers next season as well? The Warblers’ response: “That’s to be continued.” We sure hope so!

The troubled bully Max Adler proved that he cleans up well by strutting the red carpet looking chic in an all black suit. We asked Adler to dish out which other character he would love to play on the show. His answer? Finn. Max told us:

I connect with Finn a lot because in high school I got my hands on a lot of things. I was in student government, was friends with all the athletes and got good grades. I totally get what Finn is trying to balance.

Adler recently made a guest appearance as a mentor on the hit reality series The Glee Project, in which 12 contestants sing their way through each week to win a seven-episode stint on Glee. We are just a few weeks away from finding out who came out on top and will join Max Adler and the rest of the crew next season. Adler to a few seconds to wish the final five contestants luck as they made their way into the premiere.

What a sweetheart in real life!

While you anxiously await the arrival of Glee the 3D Concert Movie, here’s a sneak peak at what you’ll be able to enjoy.

Seeing Stars

Growing up in a small town, I always had my nose stuck in a magazine, getting my weekly dose of celebrity gossip.

From a young age, I knew I wanted to achieve things that were bigger then meets the eye.  And my journey to becoming an entertainment reporter was something I strived to make my very own “brand.”

The summer before entering my senior year of college, I got an opportunity that would forever change my life. I got my very first internship in Los Angeles, California working as an editorial intern for Celebuzz.

I was finally getting my foot in the door and the opportunity to do what I’ve always wanted. I was living proof that anyone can make it one step closer to accomplished their dreams.

I had the chance to interview celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian and Ricki Lake to name a few. But it was the cast of Jersey Shore and Glee who won my heart over.

One of the hottest topics over the summer was the new season of Jersey Shore in Italy and Celebuzz was all over it. When the editors needed someone to write a piece on the upcoming season of the show, I jumped on it not knowing what would come out of it.

With the title “10 Things to Know Expect from The New (International) Season of ‘Jersey Shore’ my piece went live on the web and caught the attention of the entire cast.

From The Situation to JWoww, I saw my article streaming from their personal Twitter and Facebook accounts. From just that simple act, that the piece, my article, got 971 retweets and 7,000 likes on Facebook. It is one of the top stories read on Celebuzz. Pinch me I must be dreaming!

Interning with Celebuzz has opened my eyes to where I see myself in the future. I have a passion for entertainment and won’t stop at anything until accomplish my goal of becoming an entertainment reporter.

I want to catch the attention of young girls with a dream of becoming an entertainment reporter like I was. I want to be Celeste, the girl young girls want to look up to because they have the same passion I had for entertainment.

Giuliana Rancic has been my inspiration for a long time, and I hope to one day be the same for entertainment lovers like myself.
