You know what they say… it takes a village!
 
It’s Emmys night (@televisionacad) and actress-comedian Meg Stalter (@megsstalter) is ready to make a grand entrance with a little help from her highly esteemed personal staff (aka her mom and two siblings). 💖💫
 
The “Hacks” breakout star is taking us along for the day as she prepares for the big moment.
 
She’s got the glam 💄, she’s got the red carpet rollout 📸, only one thing seems to be missing…
 
Check out our video to see if Meg will make it to the Emmys on @cbstv after all 🤞❤️😂
 
Video by @megsstalterWhat do you get when you combine your close friends, live animals and an epic swimming pool? For music artist LILHUDDY (@LILHUDDY), it’s a party definitely worthy of crashing. 🎉🐴👙
 
The 19-year-old is releasing his debut album “Teenage Heartbreak” this week, and we got an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the music video of his favorite angsty anthem. ❤️
 
“I want people to know that I’m never just tied to one thing or one genre. To see people just enjoying a song that means so much to me is my only sole purpose with it,” says LILHUDDY.
 
Since IRL parties still aren’t a thing… enjoy living vicariously through LILHUDDY’s!Watch out world, there’s a new Cinderella in town. ✨👗✨
 
“Cinderella is a girl who is literally trying to be an independent woman. She’s not trying to have a prince save her or anybody provide for her. She’s like, ‘I’m talented, I have ideas. I can provide for me and I can be an independent woman,’” says Camila Cabello (@camila_cabello). 
 
Similar to the iconic fairy tale princess, Camila is no stranger to chasing and achieving dreams. The singer-songwriter is making her acting debut in the modern movie musical of “Cinderella” (@cinderellamovieofficial) on @amazonprimevideo and is celebrating the release of her single “Don’t Go Yet.” 💕🎶 
 
“The movie is all about messages of empowerment and achieving your dreams in spite of obstacles and in spite of struggles and insecurities,” says Camila. Today, you can #TakeABreak with Camila as she finds an outfit fit for a ball for tonight’s film premiere. And check out our story for Camila’s playlist of empowering songs. ❤️❤️“The biggest lesson that I’ve learned this year is to enjoy the cake, because you deserve it.” 🎂✨

Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) has a lot to celebrate right now. Not only does today mark their 29th trip around the sun, but it’s also the release of their new music video “Melon Cake” — and we got an exclusive behind-the-scenes look. 👀🎥

“I made this song to kind of stand up for myself and against my inner insecure feelings that I had when I used to want to eat birthday cake but was too afraid to. I want it to be all about body acceptance, body positivity and just being able to make choices for yourself.”
❤️💜💚💙💛
“The music video is kind of a representation of more of who I am today. I’m a very colorful, fluid, free and open person, and I want you to see that.”

Wish the happiest of birthdays to Demi, and check out the making of their music video, as well as their ultimate birthday playlist, on our story now! 🥳🎉🍰Joey + Joel = BFF Goals 👫💕 
 
Whether on screen or off, actors Joey King (@joeyking) and Joel Courtney (@joel_courtney) know what it takes to be a good friend. 
 
The two actors star in the @netflix film trilogy “The Kissing Booth” (@thekissingboothnetflix), which follows the inevitable teenage growing pains and the shifts that can come in relationships, especially with those you’ve been lifelong friends with. 
 
But these two seem to have it figured out, and are sharing the ways they support one another through life’s ups and downs. 
 
“Life is fast. Life is quick. You’ve got to find time to sit back and relax with your best friend,” says Joey. 
 
#TakeABreak with this playful dynamic duo and send a little love to your bestie today, wherever they may be. ✨❤️How far can your dreams take you? Further than you ever imagined. ✨

Just ask Anthony Ramos (@anthonyramosofficial) and Leslie Grace (@lesliegrace), stars of the upcoming movie musical “In the Heights” (@intheheightsmovie). As two of the film’s central characters, they can relate in more ways than one to the struggles, triumphs and, of course, dreams that their characters have for themselves. ❤️❤️

“I always dreamt of going off into the world and finding other places that felt like home. And that’s what our movie is about,” says Leslie. “You see so many of our characters follow their dreams and think that they’re in other places, or they find them in the very place that made them up. I know for Anthony and I, a lot of our dreams have been made up and inspired by our love of music.”

Speaking of music, the film’s melodies highlight and celebrate the authentic stories within the Latinx community — stories of hardship, tradition and dreams becoming fulfilled.

“Don’t let anyone stop you from going after your dreams wholeheartedly,” says Anthony. “You can do anything you set your mind to if you work hard enough and dream big enough.” 💙💙

#TakeABreak with these dreamers in a musical extravaganza as they share never-before-heard versions of two original songs from the movie. 🎶💕🎼💫We asked 9-year-old Alan Kim (@official.alankim) what his dream movie would be to write, produce and star in… and this is the trailer. 🎬

You may know him as the breakout star of “Minari” (@minarimovie), but Hollywood newcomer Alan Kim is just getting started taking the film world by storm. In this exclusive trailer to his latest make-believe cinematic masterpiece he’s calling “The Search,” Alan sets off on an epic journey to rescue his best friend (and adorable puppy) Cream who’s been stolen by an evil magician.

“Cream’s dream finally came true: him being a star,” says Alan of his original screenplay.

But the dream doesn’t end there. While we get to enjoy a sneak peek at the movie of Alan’s imagination, he’ll be experiencing another dream fulfilled as he attends his first #Oscars, where “Minari” is nominated for six @theacademy awards. Tune in tonight on @abcnetwork.

Now shhh! The trailer is starting! 🤫🍿“Getting involved in environmental action isn’t about being perfect, it’s about just doing what you can.” —Environmental communicator Summer Dean (@climatediva)

Today on IGTV, listen to Summer, along with environmental and Indigenous rights defender Helena Gualinga (@helenagualinga) and @kidsagainstpalstic co-founders Amy and Ella Meek, discuss the most urgent environmental issues facing the planet today. They also share some everyday things you can do to make a difference.

Despite all the challenges facing the planet, these activists remain hopeful. “It gives me a lot of comfort knowing that all of the solutions we need are in nature,” says Summer. “We just need to come together and figure out how to make that happen.” #EarthDay 🌍For Greta Onieogou (@greta.onieogou), the definition of maintaining balance = work hard, then relax hard. The actress takes us on set of the CW’s “All American” (@cwallamerican) for a day of filming before unwinding with some outdoor magic and her “bestie” Prue. 🌿💚

“I hope you all are taking care of your mental health, your physical health and really just doing whatever you need to do to get through these wildly strange times,” she says.

#TakeABreak with Greta and experience a day in her life. ✨Comedic R&B. Dream soul. New jack swing. Quiet storm. And a little bit of chaos.

That’s how Tima Diakite (@timalikesmusic) describes the music she produces about relatable, funny everyday moments.

“I love that feeling of waking up to R&B radio Sunday morning knowing you had to clean or waking up to gospel music. Whenever I’m creating music, I try to recapture that vibe.

How did I feel at my aunt’s wedding? How did I feel at my graduation cookout? I try to capture that because the Black experience, it’s like no other. I’m telling you, it’s a vibe.”

This Black History Month, we continue to #ShareBlackStories and celebrate Black joy in all its glory. 🖤Gardening = growth, literally and figuratively. No one knows that better than Marcus Bridgewater (@garden_marcus).

“My art and craft represents who I am in the way that I am attempting to approach all of life with kindness, patience and positivity — regardless of what form of life it is or how prickly the plant may be.” 🌵

This Black History Month, we continue to #ShareBlackStories and celebrate Black joy in all its glory. 🖤Who IS she? 🤩

Symoné (@symoneforever) hula-hoops ✨ roller skates 🌈  vogues 💥  and pole dances 💫  in London.  And she wants people to know that so many of these movements are rooted in Black culture. “I think it’s important to know where art forms come from and to celebrate and remember Black people that created those art forms or revolutionized those art forms.”
