“Mean Girls 2” stars Meaghan Martin (“10 Things I Hate About You,” “Camp Rock 1 & 2”), Maiara Walsh (“Desperate Housewives”), Jennifer Stone (“Wizards of Waverly Place”), Nicole Gale Anderson (“Make It or Break It””), Claire Holt (“H20: Just Add Water”) and Diego Boneta (“Pretty Little Liars”) in a classic high school story about good versus plastic. When new girl Jo (Martin) arrives at North Shore High School, her main goal is to skate under the radar to survive her senior year and definitely not get involved in any of the typical high school trappings. But her plan goes awry quickly when she meets Abby (Stone), a girl stuck at the low end of the high school food chain and favorite target of “The Plastics” (Walsh, Holt and Anderson). After defending Abby against the queen bee of the school and lead Plastic, Mandi (Walsh), Jo is dragged into the very same girl drama she was hoping to avoid. Tim Meadows returns as the school’s principal, Mr. Duvall.

PERFORMS “PORTUGUESE LOVE” IN TRIBUTE TO TEENA MARIE ON BET HONORS, AIRING FEBRUARY 21st
[New York, NY – January 20, 2011] – With her current soul-stirring single “Far Away” climbing the charts, six-time Grammy nominated singer/songwriter/producer Marsha Ambrosius will officially release her J Records solo debut album Late Nights & Early Mornings on March 1, 2011,
The emotionally charged video for “Far Away,” conceptualized by Marsha and directed by her manager Julius Erving III, touches upon society’s current ills of bullying, gay bashing and suicide. Since the video’s premiere, it’s been the #1 played video on VH1 Soul (beating out Trey Songz), while gaining the attention of millions on the internet and critical praise for Marsha’s artistic approach to the subject matter. "I lost a friend and I've had friends that have attempted suicide. There are people that don't have a voice to speak out and show what is happening and what can happen, so I just wanted people to see the honesty in it and be aware," Marsha said in a recent interview with the Associated Press.
By being honest and aware in her approach to creating timeless music, Late Nights & Early Mornings offers a candid glimpse of Marsha’s life and perspectives as she takes the reigns as the primary songwriter and producer of the album. Collaborations with musical peers Alicia Keys, Dre & Vidal (producers of “Say Yes”), Just Blaze and more add a raw and edgy vibe to the reflective and soulful album.
