Life & Style Weekly reports in the magazine’s latest issue on the custody battle brewing between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. Senior News Editor Jordi Lippe called in from vacation in Alabama and also talked about Ashley Tisdale’s recent birthday party that Selena Gomez showed up to but Justin Bieber did not.

Just because Martin Johnson tweets, doesn’t mean the Boys Like Girls front man thinks the micro-blogging service is doing anyone any good.

“I think Twitter is really stupid,” said Johnson during an interview on The Ralphie Radio Show. I chatted with the lead singer and guitarist Paul DiGiovanni before another stop on BLG’s headlining fall trek with Cobra Starship. “I think it’s ruining America’s youth.”

Quickly I retorted that Johnson himself owns an account, with over 35,000 “followers.”

“You have to do a Twitter if you’re in a band… keep people updated,” explained Johnson. “Dude, people don’t talk to each other anymore. You go to a show, and kids, like, are texting each other… it’s scary man.”

I asked Johnson if he’s apprehensive to send out updates, or is even tempted to cancel his account all together. He began to answer before cutting himself off, admitting that he can become “preachy” and “annoying” about the subject. DiGiovanni then chimed in.

“It’s just another way for people to communicate with each other and contact each other,” said the guitarist. “I don’t think it’s gonna be bad.”

Social networking and it’s affect on our country wasn’t the only subject spoken about during the interview. Of course, the guys talked about the latest single from Love Drunk, “Two Is Better Than One”, featuring Taylor Swift.

“It felt, when we made (“Two Is Better Than One”), like it was something special,” revealed Johnson. “The song was fully produced and we were like, ‘It’s missing something so bad,’ and we had been friends with Taylor for a couple years. John (Keefe) actually played on Fearless. So we called her up and asked her to do it, and as soon as we got her voice on there it was just like, ‘Oh man, this is something special.’”

V Factory stops by The Ralphie Radio Show to chat about the group’s new music video for “Love Struck” – Twitter – and birthday celebrations.

Plus, the group allowed Ralphie an exclusive sneak peak to the video…

V Factory just finished the video, and is set to release it as soon as this weekend. Of course, quite the interesting predicament on set – as Scott Speer directed the piece. Speer currently dates Ashley Tisdale, who recently broke up with V Factory’s Jared Murillo. In the interview, Murillo insists that he and Speer were friends well before this incident, and that only the addition of Tisdale on set would’ve made the situation awkward.

The group is continuing on a promo tour as “Love Struck” climbs the charts. V Factory’s debut LP is set for a late summer/fall release.

“Love Struck” will also be heard in the upcoming Transformers 2 movie.


V Factory swung through the studio… you can hear the interview tomorrow on The Ralphie Radio Show – but meanwhile – check out an exclusive preview of the music video for their soon-to-be hit single, “Love Struck.”

Scott Speer directed the video. Yes, he’s currently dating V Factory member Jared Murillo’s ex-girlfriend, Ashley Tisdale. But did that make things awkward on set? Find out tomorrow when I ask Jared – plus the guys chat about shopping, celebrating birthdays, and landing their song in Transformers 2!
