My Childhood Crushes: Where Are They Now?

Looking back on who I had crushes on in my pre-teen years, I got curious about what on earth they're all doing now. For some reason, though, I seem to only remember liking minor characters or child TV actors that have disappeared. I think I even had a minor crush on that little kid that played Anakin in Star Wars!
Anyway, below are listed some of my biggest celebrity crushes, but you've got to help a girl out:

Add yours below in the comments!

Tom Felton aka Draco Malfoy

I was totally more in love with Tom than Daniel, and to be honest - I still am. He's currently married (or engaged?) to his loooooooooong time girlfriend and still randomly will call Daniel Radcliffe just to say "Potter" in his trademark Malfoy voice. He's acting more and more and it just a generally awesome dude. Still love you Tom!!!

Nick Carter aka the best member of the Backstreet Boys

Well, he had a big rough patch with drug abuse and rehab and the whole 'fallen celebrity' bit, but now he's cleaning up his act. He recently got married and he is back on tour with the Backstreet Boys!!! Can you believe Millennium turned 16 this year!?

Patrick Stump aka lead singer of Fall Out Boy

His voice. Dear God. I remember the first time I heard 'Sugar We're Going Down' and I nearly fell to the floor. From his solo work to the new FOB material, he's just getting better and better. He also got rid of his sideburns which is great.

Lee Thompson Young aka Jett Jackson

He was one of the coolest actors on Disney Channel when I was young enough to watch it and I was so in love. Unfortunately, Young was suffering from bipolar disorder and committed suicide in 2013. He left behind some great work and I still think of him as one of my favorite childhood actors.

Ethan Peck aka Michel from Passport to Paris

Let's be honest, I had a crush on every guy that has ever been in a Mary Kate and Ashley movie. Ethan played my favorite character though, and he still has the same cute smile. But did you know HE'S NOT FRENCH. We were LIED to!
and last but certainly not least

Leonardo DiCaprio aka LEONARDO DICAPRIO

Still adorable, still an incredible actor, and still one of my favorite celebrities ever. He's a pro at messing with the paparazzi, he made the man bun cool, and he will always be my favorite Romeo.

The 3 Countries Where Adele Isn't No.1
To tell you they're sorry for breaking your heart, Adele. WHAT!? Adele didn't achieve world domination. She may be the biggest star in ALMOST every country in the world however three countries seem to disagree. They're too preoccupied with their own music tastes and Adele just isn't one of them. In 29 international markets, Adele managed to rank No.1 in 26 of them which is basically unheard of. She's the No.1 artist in 110 countries on iTunes worldwide except for three. '3' really isn't a magic number for this pop star. Despite her record breaking album '25' : 3 million copies of the album sold in the first week of American sales alone, being the biggest-selling album released since 2011, the most sold album yearly since 2004, and broke records in how quickly her European and North American tours sold out, Adele pretty much wins...99% of the time. Thanks to Fusion.com, data was collected to show that these countries have different chart toppers and their fans wouldn't want it any other way. These countries have another preference... South Korea Why they don't prefer Adele? KPOP! Its the Korean Pop sensation that seems to dominate the music tastes of the country. The singers are hot. The music makes you want to start dancing. The music videos are strangely mesmerizing. And you've never had a party without wanting to scream at the top of your lungs to the clever lyrics that most Americans don't understand (aka Gangnam Style anyone?). Also, one must take into consideration that Koreans chart differently than most other Western countries. They have : domestic album sales, international sales, and a synthesized chart. Fusion.com found that Adele may be winning over their international chart however her streaming and album sales in South Korea are no comparison to the outstanding domestic sales of KPOP within the country. Here are Korean's top albums: - "The Most Beautiful Life," Pt 2 by the Bangtan Boys - "MATRIX" by B.A.P. - "Dear Santa - X Mas Special" by Girls Generation TTS Japan Why they don't prefer Adele? Japanese only track physical sold copies and as of now, Adele has only sold enough to make her the 7th highest album as of Dec. 7, 2015. Japanese also love KPOP but they're not as influential. It's also important to take note that digital downloads in the Japan music market outsell albums by 400% according to Fusion's research. Here are the following albums that have outsold Adele : - "For You" by Infinite - "Chandelier" by Black Number - "Sight of Blue" by Motohiro Hata Greece Why they don't prefer Adele? Blame it on the way they chart. They tracked how many '25' albums were shipped into the country instead of how many albums were sold total. Talk about bizarre. Even with Greece's adoration for American and British music, Adele only hit the No. 2 spot on Greek charts. They may track domestic and foreign music sales however their marks are harshly skewed. Sorry, Adele. The data didn't help you. Here are the albums that topped Adele: - "Ap' To Vorra Mehri to Noto" by Vasilis Karras - "M' Agapouses Ki Anthize" by Eleanora Zouganeli - "Nikos Vertis" by Nikos Vertis So really, other than MAYBE South Korea, Adele has won over everyone except for KPOP fans. There's always next time, Adele.
James Corden Uses J.Lo's Phone To Troll Leonardo DiCaprio.
Guys, I'll be real - I'm usually not the biggest fan of James Corden's Carpool Karaoke segment. I feel like he's just done it with too many celebrities, and it's time for him to find a new schtick. However, the one he just did with J.Lo is seriously HILARIOUS, so much so that it warranted this card. It all begins when James steals Jennifer's phone. As most of you know, Jennifer Lopez is a HUGE CELEBRITY, who easily knows a lot of other equally HUGE CELEBRITIES. Needless to say, this cellphone is GOLD. And with Jennifer (seriously hesitant) permission, he starts texting Leonardo DiCaprio. Freakin' Leo, you guys. James, in perfect troll form, pretends he's a down-and-out J.Lo looking for some advice from her friend, Leo 'Baby' D. And the entire time Jennifer's just like, "There's NO WAY Leo's going to believe this is me!" Especially when James goes to 'sign' the message with "J.Lo, y'know, from the block". BUT WAIT!!! HE ENDS UP TEXTING BACK - TO EVERYONE'S AMAZEMENT!!! And what does he end up saying?! HE CALLED HER 'BOO BOO'. WHO GETS CALLED 'BOO BOO' BY LEONARDO DICAPRIO?! Plus, can we just take a moment to reflect on the fact that he ACTUALLY believes that that was J.Lo?! You guys, this made me cry real tears from laughing so hard. Check out the whole Carpool Karaoke segment in the clip above! (But the prank call hilarity begins at the 9:35 mark.) What do you think of Leo's response? Which famous celebrity would YOU want to prank call? Let me know in the comments below, and for more viral vids, follow the YouTube Nation collection!
