Our boy James is featured on the cover of Cliche’ Magazine‘s December/January 2015 Issue. In the issue you’ll find a great interview with James (along with some seriously handsome photos). You can read a snippit of the the article below:
When James Maslow first auditioned for the funny Nickelodeon show Big Time Rush back in 2007 when he was only 17 years old, he didn’t predict it would take off as quickly as it did. In fact, I didn’t either. I was a freshman in college by the time the show aired in 2009 (two years, four screen tests, and a couple pilots later) and when I caught wind of the new live-action television show, I was intrigued, as were millions of others—in fact, the official debut episode drew in more than 6.8 million viewers. The next thing I knew, Big Time Rush merchandise was everywhere, concerts were selling out left and right, and the band was playing in the middle of Times Square—a dream venue for every singer/songwriter… ever.
“Not only did they have us play that concert in the rain, which made it feel like such an epic rock moment,” Maslow recalls when I ask him for his favorite BTR memory, “but they also had us broadcasted on every major screen in the area. It was our first show, and was a pretty cool way to kick off the band.”
Although I might have just missed the Big Time Rush fandom phenomenon age bracket (had I only been a few years younger, I would have had posters of the group hanging on my bedroom walls), one thing was obvious: Maslow was special. Now 24 years old, with perfectly toned arms, covetable brown hair, and a dazzling, white-toothed smile, the singer/songwriter (and now movie actor) is adored by over 3 million Twitter fans and counting—a number that skyrocketed during his time on ABC’s hit dance competition show, Dancing with the Stars, earlier this year.
