Jesse McCartney checked in with a video clip from Bubbleque 2008, where the ‘Leavin’ singer enjoyed some barbecuing, played some football, and hung out on the tour with ‘American Idol’ season six winner Jordan Sparks. The barbeque is named after Bubbles.
Describing the scene, Jesse said, “We’re here at the official Bubbleque 2008, the first one of this Jordin Sparks Jesse McCartney tour. Bubbles doesn’t eat meat, but he cooks a hell of a hot dog and hamburger and steaks, that’s why we call it Bubbleque. Play a little football and hang out.”

Ryan Wilson of The Love Willows checked in with fans on the indie pop duo’s blog at MySpace (@thelovewillows), discussing ‘Falling Faster’ remixes and touring with The Jonas Brothers three years ago, before they became the phenomenon they are today. Wilson writes:
Hey! hey! Just wanted to check in. I’ve been listening to quite a few different remixes that Jason Nevins did of our first single ‘Falling Faster’. they are sounding crazy crazy awesome!!! you guys have to hear this! Hopefully we’ll be putting that up soon on iTunes or something. Actually, while I’m on the subject of iTunes… I can’t help but see this band name every other click of the mouse. Really everywhere I go, I guess. I was in Wal-Mart, believe it or not (I know, I know – only every other day), at the checkout and every magazine has them on the cover. It doesn’t seem like that long ago when Hope and I were touring her solo record opening for Jesse McCartney. I remember hearing that this exact band was going to be playing before us on tour. To save time between acts, we were even cool enough to let this band use our backline (amp rigs, drums, keyboard, etc.). This band actually shared a dressing room with us for most of the dates, as well. Then I remember hearing them play, thinking, wow!, that’s pretty impressive. who would have thought that just three years later this band would be playing multiple sold out shows at Madison Square Garden, have the top selling album on iTunes, and be on the cover of Rolling Stone! What an awesome accomplishment. Go Jonas Bros! I tried calling those guys not too long ago, but as suspected, those are definitely not working numbers.
Johnjay and Rich of 104.7 KISS FM were backstage with ‘American Idol’ season six winner Jordin Sparks and Jesse McCartney at the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Arizona on August 8th. Rich wasn’t able to play guitar for Jesse on ‘Leavin’, but they worked something out so they could play backstage before the show. Their jam session started out with ‘Leavin’, then Jordin walked in after hearing the commotion. Jesse then performed a cover of OneRepublic’s ‘Apologize’, a song he learned after Ryan Tedder was too sick to perform at a show in Redmond, where Jesse filled in. The morning show’s producer Obi-Wan Kenobi then covered Michael Jackson’s ‘The Way You Make Me Feel’ with Jesse and Jordin singing background. The session wrapped up with Jordin getting on guitar to cover Jewel’s hit ‘You Were Meant For Me’.

Leaping on Jesse McCartney’s recent remarks to E! that he’d be fine with dating ‘Hannah Montana’ star Miley Cyrus in a few years, Star magazine hears that the 15-year-old’s father Billy Ray has warned the ‘Leavin’ singer to stay away. “There’s been serious flirting between them for a while, but Billy Ray won’t let them date,” a Cyrus family insider tells the tabloid. “It’s driving Miley and Jesse crazy!” That 6-year age difference, and Miley being underaged is the obvious sticking point. “And Jesse also thinks the fact that he’s been known to date a lot of young girls in Hollywood has gone against him with Miley’s dad,” the tipster added.

Jesse McCartney took part in Pepsi Smash’s Cover Art, offering his take on T-Pain’s ‘Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’)’.
“The first time I heard this song, I was in the car on my way out for the night, and it just makes you feel good,” Jesse said about the song. “It’s just got a nasty groove to it. It’s fun, so we’re gonna put our own little spin on it.”

Paula Abdul was on the phone with Johnjay and Rich of 104.7 KISS FM in Phoenix on Monday (July 28), where the ‘American Idol’ judge talked with the DJ’s about going up against Ryan Seacrest for best morning show on Radio & Records, how ‘Idol’ loses in the Emmy Awards every year to ‘The Amazing Race’, and Paula’s belief that with the new Emmy category best show host will see Ryan win for ‘Idol’, but the show lose, causing Ryan to get an even bigger ego. “I get it. To have to go through how big his head gets,” Abdul said. “I get where you guys are coming from, I’m in the same boat.”
Paula also teased about her plans to turn a movie into a Broadway musical that she’d star in, intriguing the DJ’s into wondering what the movie was. Paula said she couldn’t reveal the movie until she secured the rights.
Abdul then talked about having her house broken into, and all of her Emmy Awards and Video Music Awards were stolen. She then instructed her assistant to make a list of all the awards she won. Then they got Jesse McCartney on the phone and Paula congratulated him on his recent success with ‘Leavin’. They then agreed to hook up in the studio along with legendary songwriter Oliver Leiber. Paula said she’d like to do something “fresh and new” with Jesse. “Oh my god, there’s actually a song,” Paula babbled, “if he would be willing to do a duet.” Abdul sounded overly medicated throughout the interview, but the DJ’s who are friends with Paula and plan to hang out with her in Phoenix this weekend never made an issue of it.

Asked if he’s dating anybody famous, “I haven’t man. I’ve been so busy, but I do my thing. I feel that it’s a lot of work, trying to put time in with somebody who’s got a career. I’ve done it before.” When they suggested Rachel Bilson, he said, “Oh man, I love Rachel Bilson. She’s got the girl next door but the kinda sexy thing going on as well. She’s beautiful man, I’m with you.”
