Lennon & Maisy Talk Crying On 'Nashville,' Loving 'Full House' & More
Huffington Post - about 5 years
Lennon and Maisy Stella have gone from YouTube sensations to primetime TV stars in a matter of months. On ABC's "Nashville," the singing sisters play Maddie and Daphne Conrad, the daughters of country legend Rayna James (Connie Britton). Though they were all about talent shows and "side boob" at the start of the season, things are about to get emotional. "We just recently did a whole crying scene, because our family and our parents are going through a hard time. It was intense," 13-year-old Lennon told Vulture. "Maisy had [cried before] for a music video, but I had never done anything. But I’m really sensitive, so even when I was reading the script, I was like [dramatic crying noise] 'I can’t.' So it wasn’t too hard." Though the Stella sisters have weekly "Nashville" viewing parties, there are a couple other shows they can't get enough of. "My favorite show is 'Wizards of Waverly Place.' And 'Full House,'" nine-year-old Maisy told Vulture. They are also "very, very ...

John Lennon’s Son Julien Does Not Want To Make The Same Mistakes He Did!
Beleb Dirty Laundry - almost 6 years
John Lennon‘s son Julien Lennon, 49, was the result of the late Beatles legend’s first marriage to Cynthia Powell, and he admits he always delayed having children because he did not want to do the same things his parents did when they were young. He said: “I didn’t want to follow certain things dad had done because dad’s mother died when he was 17 and so on. So I didn’t want to have children so early in life and I wanted to learn about life a little more … I didn’t want to make the same mistakes, basically.  One can only hope I’ve learnt a little more and am a little wiser on that front. It was a different time for everybody.” Julian – who was abandoned by his dad at the age of five after his parents divorced – has in recent years been collecting memorabilia related to his father and he is doing so in the hope he can one day show the items to his children, if he has them. During an appearance on ‘This Morning’, he said: “If I’m going to have a family I want to have things...
