Aly & AJ Spill on New EP 'Ten Years,' First Dates & Social Media (Exclusive)

It’s been 10 years since Aly & AJ last released music under their eponymous name but they’re ready for a major comeback!

The sister duo shared their new single “Take Me” earlier this summer and are getting ready to debut their EP Ten Years soon!

Here’s what Aly & AJ had to share:

JJ: Are there any other major life events in the past ten years that have informed your new music?

Aly: I think moving out of our family home, having our parents go through a divorce and then my marriage 2 years ago were all big events that affected this new music.

Get to Know Younger's Molly Bernard with These 10 Fun Facts! (Exclusive)

Molly Bernard is always one of the comedic highlights of the TV Land series Younger each week and now she’s giving us more insight into her life with these 10 Fun Facts!

Here is what the 29-year-old actress had to share with us:

  • 1. I wear a night guard at night and I don’t sleep without it. It keeps me from grinding my teeth and the case says in large, very aggressive letters “NIGHT GUARD”. I like to think he’s a guard who protects me as I sleep.
  • 2. Speaking of sleep. My dog/life partner/husband/son/best friend, Henry, sleeps in my womb at night. Literally curled into my belly from dusk til dawn. I LOVE IT. (See a photo in the gallery!)
  • 3. When I was really young, like 7-10 young, I was OBSESSED with Boy George and Culture Club. At the height of my love for him, one summer I asked to go by “Boy George” at day camp. This was also the summer I was the UNO and poker queen. Watch out!
  • 4. BEACH! I love sand. I will actually stop listening to even my nearest and dearest on the beach and begin to rub and cover my entire body with sand and roll in it and act like nothing weird is happening. Then I’ll say at odd intervals, “I love sand.” “I just love it”.
  • 5. I lived in Russia. I studied at the Moscow Art Theater my junior year of college and I loved it. I was in college and nuts, so I love-hated it, but I really had an incredible time. I voted for, and watched Obama win, saw three dead people, was attacked by a band of gypsies and saw theater every night I was there. I can’t wait to go back. And I am not being sarcastic.

Marteen Estevez dropped his free-spirited “Sriracha” video yesterday, which is full of his spicy, slick, and soulful style.

The catchy chorus goes, “Girl you got a body like Sriracha, every time I bring you ‘round the homies wanna watch ya, got it from your mama but that ain’t what she taught ya, that’s why I call you lil’ ‘racha.”
