Scott: When did you realise that you wanted to be a singer / performer? 

Kye: I was very young probably about 8/9 and my older brother , cousin and me we’re all big Michael Jackson fans. We’d always be playing the Bad album and dancing around to it. Then I was lucky enough to be taken to see the Dangerous tour at Wembley stadium and that’s when I thought yes I wanna do that!

Scott:  Who was your idol / inspiration growing up?

Kye: Michael Jackson! 

Scott:  You wrote music for some amazing people, Can you tell us more about it. How it all came about?

Kye: Sometimes it’s easier to write for other people than for yourself as your less judgemental with it. Most of the people I started writing for where friends first which makes it easier as there’s no ego in the room. Then I started looking to who I’d like to work with and I’d write a song with them in mind and send it over to them. In Dance music this works better as they generally don’t write songs they focus more on production.

Scott:  What will be your advice to anyone trying to break the music industry now? 

Kye: Do it for love not for money. Because it’s getting harder and harder to make any money out of working in music. My advice to my self has always been ” never give up”. You take a lot of knocks and many times you think about doing something else but if you stay strong and never give up you’ll get something out of it. Eventually…

Scott: Your EP “Seven” on Itunes what can you tell us about it, Why did you call it “Seven”?

Kye: Seven’s always been my lucky number and it just felt appropriate for the EP. It’s essentially a break up record. The few years surrounding it were tough so it’s a breakup record with those few years really and everything in them.

Seven-EP-by-Kye-Sones

Scott:  Can you remember the first record you bought?

Kye: I remember having Bad and Dangerous. The first one I actually bought though I think was Maria Carey music box.

Scott:  If you could choice to perform / write for any artist who would it be and why?

Kye: At the moment I’m in the dance world and writing for a lot of guys in that genre. I’d like to write with and for anyone like Calvin Harris, Diplo and Major Lazer Chain Smokers etc. Then also be the featured vocalist and perform with them.

Scott:  You shared the same stage as Calvin Harris, How was that experience? 
Kye: Ibiza rocks was one of the best experiences as a performer I’ve had. The energy was incredible. It’s something I’ll never forget.

Scott:  Whats your plans for 2016 / 2017 ? 

Kye: I have some exciting collaborations in the pipeline. We almost have a video ready for a song called “Colors” which is with a guy called ATTLAS who is Deadmau5s main man and signed to Mau5trap records. I’m very proud of that song and ATTLAS is an incredible talent and a really nice guy. It’s been a pleasure working with him. Then I have a song on quite a big up and coming album out in October. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to say who yet. But his last 3 songs went to number one in multiple countries so I’m super excited to be a part of his album. I then have another few singles out on Armada records. One at the end of August called ” beautiful enemies” with an artist called JYRA. Then one caller ” eyes wide shut” on the new MOWË album which is also out on Armada and then another in November with JYRA again.

I’m hopefully going to release another EP before the end of the year too and generally see where life takes me. I’m open to life.

Hughie Maughan Interview With Scott McGlynn

Big Brother runner up Hughie Maughan exclusive interview with Scott McGlynn.

After last weeks interview with his partner Ryan, It was a huge request to get Hughie featured for a Q&A we talked Ryan, Future Plans, Puppies and much more…

Big-Brother-Summer-2016-Hughie-004

Scott: How did you get involved in Big Brother? Was it something you always wanted to do? Was it an easy audition process? 

Hughie: I’ve always been a massive fan of big brother and reality TV shows since I was a kid. At the start of the year I wrote a bucket list and getting on big brother was on it , so I searched online found an email address for a casting producer and emailed them about myself and why they should have me. After that there came a rigorous process to get on the show of phone calls, Interviews and meetings in London until I was chosen as a housemate. Getting in that house is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

Scott: We all know about the romance between yourself and Ryan, Was it love at first sight? 

Hughie:  I wouldn’t say that for either of us not that I didn’t think he was attractive or anything but I didn’t know if Ryan was being himself on the first night I didn’t know if we would get on, I thought we might clash. But by the 2nd day I knew he was himself just that he had a fantastic personality. It wasn’t until we were separated when he went over to the main house that we both really started to miss each other and when he came back I kissed him on the first night and it went from there.

Scott: I loved you in the house, Not afraid to stand up what you believe in, Natalie was a horrid woman! Have you seen her since the show? Did she make your experience more difficult? 

Hughie:  I’m a very honest person and I say how I feel and I’m really glad that people seen that because it could of went another way that I came out looking bad because I argued quite a bit but i didn’t thankfully. I’m just really passionate about the way I feel. Natalie is a disgrace of a women. horrible in every sense of the word .. I hate even talking about her because I know she wanted to be seen in a controversial way and be the “bitch” of the series. She had a dark presence about her she was always dressed in black and wearing dark Sun glasses. And sitting in the smoking area throwing in comments left right and centre when she deemed necessary to people. Me mostly. I was top of the list for this twat. I chose in the end to ignore her and I let the public do the talking and boy did they . She would have ruined my experience if I had let her but I didn’t. She made me uncomfortable at times though and I was glad to see the back of her. I hope to never see that thing again.

Scott: Since you been out, I know you had a lot of positive reactions which is amazing! Any not so positive things or rumours you can share with us / clear up? 

Hughie:  Yes I’ve had an amazing reaction from the public which I am so happy about. Thank you to all of them. But strangely I haven’t really had any hate online or in the press just positive really. I mean I get the odd comment saying Hughie kicks and screams when he’s not getting his own way .. but that is the extent of the negativity as far as I’ve seen.

Scott: In my last interview with Ryan, He said about you moving to London sometime this year and live together, You looking forward to the big move? Hows your family feeling you moving from Dublin? 

Hughie:  Yes I am looking forward to moving to the UK and starting a new life . My family are happy if I am and I’m an adult so I control my own life now. Ireland will always be home but I’m ready for a change.

Scott: We also talked about people online saying you and Ryan should get your own show, Do you think we be seeing it? 

Hughie: So many people say that all the time. Literally thousands of people have said that . There are threads on Twitter and pages dedicated to us being back on there screens again. I really want to do more reality TV and I’m going to make that happen for myself but if I got to do a show with Ryan it would be amazing. I think one about my move to the UK would be a good concept.

Scott: How’s it been being a public figure, Everyone knowing you, and the TV / Press? 

Hughie:  It’s so weird but funny as well because I am such a fan of people who know me as well and follow me online and speak about me on tv . Reading about myself in the paper is so strange as well. The weirdest thing to happen is a police man in Oxford street who was about 55 years old asking me for a selfie. That was just not the type of person I thought was watching. But I’ve always wanted to be on television so it’s a dream come true.

Scott: I brought my first book out this year called “OUT” its my true life story about coming out as gay and getting bullied in school for who I was, Did you every suffer from bullying, How was your coming out? 

Hughie: I was horrendously bullied as a kid , always called homophobic names by adults and kids . It was horrible and ruined my childhood but I’m happy now. My coming out story is different to others because a lot of my family and friends found out on television when I was talking about it on the show. I only told who I deemed necessary beforehand . But every 1 has been amazing. It’s at a stage in my life now where I don’t care how others feel about it if I had a family member who had a problem with it I would cut them out of my life now a days. I have to think of myself.

Scott: When you an Ryan move in and settle down, Are you going to get any pets like puppy’s? What;s your favourite breed? 

Hughie: .Ryan doesn’t Care to have a pet but I want a French bull dog called harry. A boy one. I want the blue grey colour.  They are stunning. Ryan can dog sit for me haha!

Scott: Ryan did say he will be starting a Youtube channel, Are you going to join him or start your own channel? 

Hughie: I’m sure I’ll make the odd appearance on his channel. I would like to do my own sometime but I’m not very good with social media. I need to learn more before hand and come up with a theme for my videos and site.

Scott: What is planned for Hughie, Anything you love to do like another TV show, Clothing range etc? 

Hughie:  I really want to do another reality show. Something fun and young like Ibiza weekender. I think I would’ve really good on that. There is so much that I want to do in the industry if I have the chance but I am still young I’m 22 at the end of the day so I can go out and work for anything in my opinion. I’m going to make things happen for myself.

QUOTE FROM SCOTT:

 I just like to say thank you to Ryan & Hughie for working with me they are 2 amazing guys & I hope you work with them in the future! 

Also their fans for all your support on Twitter and enjoying my work, 

THANK YOU!  

Ryan Ruckledge Interview By Scott McGlynn

TV personality Ryan Ruckledge exclusive  interview with Scott McGlynn, We seen him on The X Factor, MTV and recently Big Brother 2016! We talked future plans, Fans and Mr Hughie

 

Big-Brother-Summer-2016-Ryan-004

Scott: We see you on a few things The X Factor, Judge Geordie and recently big brother, How did you get involved in these show?

Ryan:  I’ve appeared on a few shows over the years and made an absolute joke out of myself on the like of the X-factor and judge Geordie but it was all to just try and build and profile and to get the producers of big brother to recognise me, I applied for 8 years to get on big brother and it was eighth time lucky I got on, genuinely think it’s fate I never got on any of the previous series as I was meant to meet Hughie! I’ve been a joke over the last couple of years and caused a bit of controversy when I never really wanted to, it was all to get on big brother and I’m glad I’ve changed a lot of people’s opinions of me on the show for just being me and people could see I’m different compared to the other shows I’ve been on in the past. 

Scott: How was your Big Brother experience?

Ryan:  My big brother experience was the most challenging and mentally draining thing I’ve ever done, there was times when I wanted to just quit and leave but kept telling myself I would regret it and I’m so glad I never! I mean what do u do for 24hours a day with no phone no tv no nothing and what do u talk about! The days are so long and 24 hours feels like 24 days! When days was bad they was bad and when they was good they was incredible! Best thing I ever did and won’t ever forget it.

Scott: We all know about you a Hughie, I love you guys BTW! Was it love a first sight?

Ryan:  Aww thank you, and to be honest it wasn’t love at first site! I initially saw this tanned guy who was quite confident and a bit like me in some aspects and instantly thought we was going to clash, after a few hours tho we got on so well and formed a good bond and I knew we was going to be At least good mates but never thought anything more of it! It was till after I got chose to go to the main house after the first three days I realised I had stronger feelings than just friends, I was really missing him! Then I think it was day ten when I got sent back to the others house I couldn’t wait to see him and that’s when he went in for a kiss and it just progressed from there! If he hadn’t of made a move on me I’m not sure if I would of dared because I hate rejection, especially on national TV so I’m glad he did haha!

landscape-1468181689-bb8

Scott: Are you a official couple? It nice to know the long distance isn’t going to effect you both and make it work! 

Ryan: Yeah me and Hughie are 100% official and in a relationship, the long distance thing does bother me slightly only because I can’t see him whenever I like but we are seeing each other as much as we can and he’s recently just been to Blackpool to meet my mum and family! We are planning on moving in together in the next few months when he moves to the UK!

Scott: People on twitter, keep saying you & Hughie should do a TV show, If you had a chance to, what would it be about?

Ryan:  The demand for me and Hughie to get our own reality show is crazy, almost every tweet is about it! It’s flattering, we would both love to do it! I think it would be a reality one like Katie and Oeter following our lives and him moving in with me in the UK and stuff! Just being us the jokers that we are!

Scott: Any of your ex housemates you don’t want to see again?

Ryan: I don’t want to see Natalie, Jason and Marco!

Scott: Tell us 3 facts that people may not know about yourself?

Ryan: Three facts id say, I used to do athletics when I was younger for about 10 years! I once fell over on a gravestone and chipped my front tooth on it that’s why it’s chipped haha and i once got four stick-men tattooed on my arm as a dare.

Scott: What’s your top 3 grooming tips?

Ryan: I’m not really good with grooming to be honest I always say tho I love a good tan, white teeth and Vaseline on your eyelashes makes them grow!

Scott: What’s your perfect date? 

Ryan:  I don’t really have a perfect date and I don’t really go on many I get too nervous! I’m very spontaneous and crazy as I’m sure you’ve gathered and I’d love to do something like a bunker jump or a sky dive then get drunk after haha! No ones been brave enough yet, I’m sure I can persuade Hughie 🙂

Scott:  What’s next Ryan?

Ryan:  I’m not sure to be honest what’s next For me, I do know that I’m looking forward to being with Hughie and meeting his family! Then the next stage is to move in together which is so exciting! I’m sure this won’t be the last you guys will see of me tho x

Being Me Campaign

Hi everyone, 

I don’t normally talk about other things than interviews on here as you may know,  But i wanted to share with you something you may be seeing me tweet and RT a lot, Is “Being Me Campaign”this charity personally to me it’s something i struggled with growing up, So it’s great we have a charity to help others to be yourself and embrace who you are!

See more about the charity here..

F67tmPeF

“The BeingMeCampaign was founded in October 2015 by Kieran Stanbridge & Tracy Shayler. Our charity is about owning and celebrating any differences you have. We believe it’s awesome to be who you are and our differences should be celebrated not suppressed.”

Through our website, workshops, social media channels & campaigns, we give everyone a voice to share their story & advice to inspire others to be proud of who they are!” We are delighted to have Jodie; Trent & Luke join us as official Ambassadors for our charity. Their commitment and passion to helping us spread the message “It’s ok to be you” is second to none, and we are delighted that they have got on board. Many young people and adults across the world are scared to accept their differences and be proud of who they are, our main aim is to support those who don’t fit in with society’s “norm” and let them know that their differences are AMAZING and should be celebrated.

Jodie Marsh, Trent & Luke are outstanding role models, and we are looking forward to supporting many young people and adults with their help.Kieran Stanbridge & Tracy Shayler Founders.

 

Being Me Campaign Trent and Luke are the UK’s biggest LGBT male couple on YouTube. In two years they have accumulated over 20 million views and 250,000 subscribers. “We are honored and proud to be Ambassadors for the Being Me Campaign. The message we try to give out on our YouTube channel is that it is ok to be yourself. Learning that we will never be perfect has allowed us to grow as individuals. It’s our imperfections that complement each other as a married couple. The challenges we all face do eventually help us to grow, our differences making us stronger. Thing’s change, People change but you will always be you. Stay true to yourself and never sacrifice who you are for anyone or anything. Know you are amazing and never alone. #ItsOkToBe You!” -Trent Owers & Luke Shayler

Jodie is an internationally renowned TV Presenter, Model & Anti-Bullying Campaigner. She is a regular on TV, with her investigative documentaries for TLC/Discovery. 

 

Words can’t describe how proud I am to be involved in this charity. Not only is it the first TRUE charity I’ve come across (meaning, it’s NOT being run as a business where people are making money) but it’s the only charity I know of that is 100% dedicated to its cause and therefore to helping people.

 

This charity’s sole aim is to make the world a nicer place by celebrating each and every human on this earth! The message is clear: It’s ok to be YOU! And what that means on a deeper level is that we should embrace our differences instead of ridiculing them. No one person is the same so why should ANYONE be a target?! It’s ok to look or act differently – it’s NOT ok to pick on people for how they look or act.

ad_211450649-e1467290834413When I had bright red hair, I was told I needed to dye it back to brown in order to make a serious documentary about bullying. I was outraged; it felt like I was being told I wasn’t good enough simply because of the colour of my hair. I refused to dye it back and the show got made anyway and I didn’t do a better or worse job because of my hair……. How ridiculous that I was made to feel small and sub-standard just because I had a “crazy” hair colour. The red hair didn’t change who I am as a person, apart from actually to make me feel BETTER about myself and more confident (which can only be a good thing) and it certainly didn’t lower my brain power OR alter my mind and compassion. If everyone could embrace everyone else’s differences as well as their own, then we would see the end of bullying forever and the world would be a much better place.

 

This charity will do BIG things – by giving people a voice and the confidence to be proud of who they are, the Being Me Campaign will change people’s lives and futures. It doesn’t matter if your hair is brown, red or green, it doesn’t matter if you are gay, straight or bi, it doesn’t matter if you love animals, computers, violins or are scared of footballs (FYI I AM scared of footballs!), it doesn’t matter if you listen to country music or hip-hop, it doesn’t matter if you have tattoos or don’t. The point is that you are YOU and that’s ok!”

ROBYN REGAN INTERVIEW BY SCOTT MCGLYNN

Talent singer and performer Robyn Regan exclusive interview, We talked Role Models, Music, Spice Girls plus much more.. Please leave any question / comments below.


 Scott – When was the moment that music was your passion?

Robyn – Growing up I went to three different stage schools, ( not at the same time obviously hehe ) I was always put into competitions for singing and dancing and always walked away with medals and trophies for every routine that I did. So at the age of 15 I entered a singing competition and performed at the Hackney Empire. From that moment on I knew I wanted to be a singer. But wasn’t aloud to fulfil my dreams until I finished school. ( Education is important ).

 

Scott –  Who was your idol growing up?

Robyn – My idol has always been and always will be Michael Jackson!

 

Scott –  I love your song “OH I” in the video your really into your dancing, Is this something you really enjoy as well?

Robyn – I wasn’t  very confident child growing up but I always put on shows at home for my family and toys. So to gain confidence my parents decided to put me into performing arts. This has always been apart of my life and wouldn’t change that for the world.

 

Scott –  What’s your thoughts of Spice Girls reunion? Do you want it to happen even tho it could be only 3 of them?

Robyn – Growing up I loved the Spice Girls! I acted as every single Spice Girl depending on my mood, I would always felt guilty if I did a show and didn’t act as one of them just in case they felt left out. I was like their biggest fan EVER. I would love for them to do a reunion! I think it would be great if they invited me along to perform to hehe, cheeky I know!

 

Scott – Where will you performing this summer?

Robyn – I can’t give away too much because nothing has been announced, but just know that there is some really exciting things coming!

 

Scott –  Your YouTube vlog is great! Is this something you always wanted to do, share your experience with your fans?

Robyn – Hey thanks! Well I’ve only really just started using my YouTube channel properly. The whole idea of vlogging the events I do, is so that my fans could see what actually goes into every performance. Everyone sees the final production, nobody realises that it’s not that easy and a lot of work goes into what I do. I also wanted to show my fans that I’m not that different from them either. I like being weird and crazy. I think that comes across pretty well in my videos.

 

Scott –  Do you ever get nervous before going on stage? If yes, how do you over come them?

Robyn – To be honest I don’t really get nervous no. I get more excited than anything. Knowing that I’m going to go on stage to perform to my fans makes what I do more fun! I love seeing my fans in the audience and I love meeting them after a show! Why be nervous when the people you love and know love you are supporting you?

 

Scott – Have you ever thought to go on “The X Factor” or “The Voice” ?

Robyn – Truthfully I’ve never wanted to enter either of those shows. I want to be different.
Scott –  How did it all kick off for you, Your career?

Robyn – Well it all started with my song “Home” that I wrote for Help 4 Heroes. Everybody supported the song seeing as all the money raised went to the charity. A fan wrote a letter to Prince Harry about my song. He then wrote back to her, commending me on my song and to keep going. “Home” also got to number 6 in the singer/songwriter charts on ITunes. This was how my career started. From then I’ve just kept working harder and have been doing lots of tours that I love!
