I recently bore witness to a rather unique interaction: one of my favorite bands, Walk The Moon chatting and exchanging numbers with Diane Warren, who is a legendary songwriter. The guys from WTM were leaving my broadcast booth and thankfully, Warren was on her way in. I immediately wanted to know what they all chatted about.

“They were in the audience at the ASCAP Awards; I got a big award that night,” Warren recalled, later revealing that she might collaborate with the band. “Snoop gave (the award) to me, and I had worked with Snoop the year before. We were just joking that he had this giant blunt in his hand and I’m like, ‘Who has a match?’”

There is little if nothing that Warren, whose discography of penned tracks dates back to 1979, hasn’t seen or experienced. But if there has been one constant throughout her storied career, it is her approach to songwriting.

“I always went with my heart,” Warren insisted while noting that this very mindset led her to write “Stand Up For Something,” a song that Andra Day and Common performed for the movie, “Marshall.” She is proud of the final product and rightfully so; the track is up for Best Song Written For Visual Media at this year’s GRAMMYs. It is the eleventh time Warren has received a nomination in this category; she won the GRAMMY for it in 1997 thanks to Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me” from the 1996 film, “Up Close & Personal.”

At the New York premiere for the movie “Turbo,” Ralphie tries to ask Ryan Reynolds a question that involves one of his movie’s co-stars, Snoop Dogg. Reynolds wasn’t having it.

Big Time Rush have forged a big time relationship with rapper Snoop Dogg, and the guys from the Nickelodeon hit show insist the D-O-Double G is not the same artist of yester-year.

“He’s very much a family man,” revealed BTR’s Carlos Pena on “The Ralphie Radio Show.” The group sat down for a quick interview and performed an acoustic version of the song “Boyfriend.” The studio track features Snoop. “He was great to work with.”

“I don’t think the kids who would watch the episode now, would know anything about his (past),” insisted actor/singer Kendall Schmidt. “Most of them are pretty young. They know him from Katy Perry (‘California Gurls’).”

Schmidt added that Snoop commented to the boys on how impressed he was with people’s reaction to the rapper’s cameos and affiliation with the show: for the first time in his career, 5 year-olds approach Snoop in public to comment on his work.

“We went to one of his concerts and he was nice enough to invite us back stage and we had a great time,” said Logan Henderson. “He lives and breathes music.”

“He gets done playing a show and he goes back there and he’s still deejaying music,” James Maslow continued, elaborating on the experience backstage with one of the most influential West Coast emcees of all time. “He’s with a bunch of his friends and family. He’s very close with his family and a lot of them are a part of his hair and makeup. It’s just him hanging out with his closest friends, playing music.”

Schmidt also recalled one point during the party where someone stepped on a cord, cutting the music. Snoop, who will not let anyone else touch the computer, immediately wanted to know who was responsible. BTR insisted it was none of them – but regardless, it certainly sounds like a funny scene for a future episode.

The guys currently have ten more episodes of the show’s second season to film. Afterwards – it’s on the road for what BTR hopes will be an international tour.
