MTV leaks Selena Gomez's unconfirmed album title 'A Year Without Rain'

Selena Gomez's new album to be released in the USA September 28

Selena Gomez's new song 'Round and Round' is number 1 at Radio Disney's Top 3 Dot Com Countdown as of July 4, 2010. This is fantastic news for Selena. Her single 'Falling Down' performed similarly well prior to the release of the 'Kiss and Tell' album.

Now it seems as though MTV has some inside scoop, or is misinformed. MTV.com lists the album title in the video credits as being 'A Year Without Rain'. There is no official confirmation on this title as of July 5, 2010.

It is unusual that MTV would list the title of Selena Gomez's new album if they did not already know this for a fact. You can check this our yourself at the following MTV.com website page:

This new album is set to drop in the United States on September 28, 2010.

It is official that Miley Cyrus has left Hollywood Records which is owned by The Walt Disney Company Disney. Miley is being reported as signing with Mafia Records. Cyrus signed to Hollywood Records for a solo career in 2007. She went on the Best of Both Worlds Tour the same year. The tour was eventually turned into a high-grossing concert film entitled Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert in 2008.

Rock Mafia Records, which is based in Santa Monica, California, was formed in 2007 by Antonina Armato and Tim James. These two have written and co-produced many songs on Miley's new album "Can’t Be Tamed". Antonina Armato is mainly known for her songwriting roles with Disney stars, and Tim James co-wrote the song "Come Back to Me" by Vanessa Hudgens, and has also worked with The Cheetah Girls. Between the three founding members of The Rock Mafia organization, they have collectively sold over 100 million albums worldwide.

Walt Disney Pictures feature film 'Prom' cast list announced

Walt Disney Pictures and Idealogy/Rickshaw Productions are teaming up to bring a new feature film to the big screen. The film is called Prom, and is a comedy that revolves around a group of teens prepping for the big dance. Unlike the High School Musical franchise, this film is not a musical.

Principal actor casting is now complete. The most notable actors are Danielle Campbell from the Disney Channel Original Movie StarStuck and Yin Chang from Gossip Girls. The rest of the cast is newcomers.

Here is the cast list and their credits:

Danielle Campbell - StarStuck
Yin Chang - Gossip Girls
Aimee Teegarden - Friday Night Lights
Nicolas Braun - Things I Hate About You
Thomas McDonell
Nolan Sotillo
Jared Kusnitz
Ben Esler
Kylie Bunbury
DeVaughn Nixon

The film follows the hilarious antics of nine high school students as they try to get ready for the big dance. The tone is said to be similar to the types of teen comedies directed by John Hughes or Cameron Crowe.

The popular young musicians and TV stars will be honored at the TJ Martell Foundation Family Day fundraising event and will be in studio in advance of the occasion and the season premiere of “JONAS” and the highly anticipated Disney Channel Original Movie “Camp Rock 2 The Final Jam.”

Beginning April 17 through April 29, Radio Disney will give fans the chance to enter the “Living The Dream with the Jonas Brothers Sweepstakes.” One lucky grand prize winner will travel to Los Angeles to meet the Jonas Brothers on the set of “JONAS.” The winner will also get a signed guitar by Kevin, a drum set signed by Nick and a microphone signed by Joe.

Radio Disney’s behind-the-scenes coverage will air April 19 during Ernie D’s show (4:00 p.m., ET/1:00 p.m., PT) and online at RadioDisney.com.

Kevin Jonas talks about JONAS Season Two

The 22-year-old actor spoke to TV Guide magazine about what’s happening in season two involving Nicole Anderson, Chelsea Staub and Joe. Here are some highlights:

On filming new music sequences: “That was incredible (filming with a helicopter on the rooftop of the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa) — out of control! We never did anything like that last season. It feels like a movie! It was very cool standing there and seeing the Hollywood sign behind us—very appropriate for what this season has to hold.”

On the theme of season two: “It’s a much different show—it’s on location, it will be all over the place. The big idea is we’re spending the summer away in Los Angeles and exploring what this city has to offer. It’s going to be pretty cool—new characters, new storylines… so many different things are going to happen with it. It’s so much more fun and it’s incredible to be outside and feel the warmth of the sun all day. You have this beautiful landscape around you—it’s awesome!”

On the love connections in the series: “I’m not able to say (on Macy and Kevin), but she’s (Macy) definitely a big part of this next season and I think fans will connect with her on a further level. (With Stella and Joe) something very interesting is going to happen with that whole situation. It’s pretty cool!”

Savvy signs with Jonas Group

The up and coming teen group Savvy has just announced, forgive the obvious pun, a savvy strategic alliance with the Jonas Group, who represent and guide the careers of artists like Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, and Jordin Sparks. Savvy members Shaylen Carroll, Sarah Gabrielle LeMaire, Mariah Parks, Drew Reinartz, Alan Shaw, and Andrew Bowen Stern are an American born recording and performing group whose new TV show The Wannabees starring Savvy just premiered in Australia. The show will soon be coming to American television once a network deal has been inked.

Savvy is excited about their new alliance with the Jonas Group, which is a leading management company that has offices in Los Angles and Dallas. The Jonas Group shares in Savvy's enthusiasm. "We are honored to have teamed up with such an innovative group," said Kevin Jonas Sr. "Never before have we seen an independently financed production so fully functioning with such a high-quality product."

Savvy has been together since 2004, performing at over 400 live concerts in the U.S. including a headlining gig on Radio Disney's "Feelin' Groovy" tour. With the upcoming premier of their new TV show on the horizon, the parnership with Jonas Group is timely.

Their TV show, The Wannabees, follows six high school students who attend an upscale arts academy that frowns upon their dreams of becoming pop stars. During the first season, the Wannabees struggle to balance school with their secret life as performing artists. Along the way, the six encounter outrageous situations as they try to reach the top of the pop charts, while hiding their true identities.

Each episode will contain an original Savvy exclusive music video.

Selena Gomez to star in FOX feature film "Monte Carlo"

Selena Gomez, 17, is replacing Nicole Kidman, 42, as the star of upcoming movie "Monte Carlo." Kidman is also a producer of the comedy along with Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan

Based on the book "Headhunters" by Jules Bass, the story is about three women who try to pass themselves off as rich ladies vacationing in Monaco. Kidman was originally slated to star before it was decided that the script should be youth-enized.

Now two of the women are college students and one is a graduate student. They're on a cheap holiday in Paris when they flee to Monte Carlo to live the good life, even if they are also living a lie.

Leighton Meester of "Gossip Girl" will be co-starring with Gomez, the star of the Disney Channel series "Wizards of Waverly Place." The movie, to be directed by Tom Bezucha, begins filming May, 2010 in Paris, Monte Carlo, and Budapest.

Kidman may take on a supporting role, according to Variety.
