Betcha didn't know that daytime star-turned R&B prince Jesse McCartney (ex-JR Chandler, All My Children) co-wrote the smash hit "Bleeding Love" for British breakout star Leona Lewis. McCartney co-wrote the tune with OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, according to the June issue of Atlanta Peach magazine
Freelance writer Humberto Guida interviewed McCartney for the recent release of his third CD Departure. In the revealing interview McCartney details his transition from boy to man, musically and when it comes to the ladies:
"Crossing this bridge into an adult lifestyle, that's what this record is. It presents a lot of growth. There's no fear. It's truthful. The content is mainly on my relationships with women. And that's what I want to write about now, but in a more mature way." READ MORE

Move over Cindy Walsh. Next season's most buzzed about new show, The CW's 90210, has found itself a MILF. Edge of Night alum Lori Loughlin has been cast as Celia Mills, mother of the show's core teens Annie and Dixon. As previously reported, pop singer/actress Hilary Duff (Lizzie McGuire) has been offered the role of Annie. After her three year turn on Night, Loughlin shot to fame opposite fellow daytime grad John Stamos (ex-Blackie Parrish) on Full House, which also starred Days of Our Lives very first Carrie Brady, Andrea Barber as Kimmie Gibler. Loughlin later starred in the WB cult fave Summerland opposite All My Children's Jesse McCartney (ex-JR) and Shawn Christian (ex-Mike, As The World Turns/Daniel, Days of Our Lives).
I know I have already blogged about this once, but with his CD's drop date fast approaching I feel the need to remind you guys again to run not walk and pick up former All My Children teen dream Jesse Mc Cartney's new CD Departure on May 20.
The single "Leavin", available for download at iTunes, is off the chain! The track is a sultry, melodic offering that proves Mc Cartney (ex-JR) is as talented a singer as he is an actor. I always knew Jesse could carry a tune, but who knew he had soul???
His sound is very similar to the hottest R&B acts around, Usher, Justin Timberlake and Chris Brown. I predict big things for Jesse’s future. He has graduated from boyband-style bubblegum, to grown folk's music.You heard, er read it here first, if you like good, old -fashioned get-alone-with-your-girl-or-guy-and-get-busy-style R&B, check Jesse out!
