"i met alex milligan this morning while he was getting a coffee! his hair was a mess it looked like he just rolled out of bed lol. when the barista asked for his name he told her it was jake sully & when i asked him why he used that name he said avatar was on tv right before he left his hotel and it was stuck in his head. after i got my selfie with him and we talked for a bit he went outside and skateboarded away!! didn't expect that"
What would you be doing in a zombie apocalypse?
What is your least favorite part of being onstage?
What's one of your worst qualities?
for the past few months alex has been linked to a few different people too. suki waterhouse, lucy hale, daisy lowe, emilia clarke, zara larsson just to name a few. whenever anyone is single in the media for too long, people are going to start throwing names together. has anything come of it? nope. i don't believe a lot of the relationship gossip stories but i want to at least keep my followers in the know of what people are saying!
New Couple Alert? British Crooner Alex Milligan and K-Pop sensation CL have been getting close!
Has Alex finally found a new girl to sing to? Or with?
He just might have! This surprising couple isn't all that surprising. The two met at CL's concert a few weeks back as documented in an Instagram photo both of them posted from backstage. Instead of parting ways they were then spotted getting close at an afterparty together. Now sources are claiming that the two have been keeping in touch while Alex is on tour and things are starting to heat up with talks of visiting each other and wanting to take things to the next level.
"They'll text and snapchat each other," a friend claims. "Lee [CL's real name] enjoys his company and wants to see where this thing could go."
Guess we'll have to wait and see, too!
There's this emphasis on being the best in the industry. Reaching those ultimate goals, numbers, making a certain amount of sales, topping what you've done thus far. Once you let that consume you you're done for. It doesn't become about the music, it becomes about the expectations. I'd be lying if I were to say that it never got the best of me. They tell you about being blinded by those lights but you don't believe them. I didn't. There were times when I allowed the music to take a back seat to pressure I put on myself. You know what that got me? Nothing. I was unhappy, unhealthy, and the music I was making was shit. What pulled me out of that was a real, genuine connection to break through to me. Someone going, "I'm here for you." It's so simple but can be taken for granted. We all need those positive interactions in our lives. So, I've been focusing on that. Protecting, nourishing, and building those real connections and moments whenever I can because that is what fuels me right along with music."
"If you watch this video with the sound off, these ‘standard establishing scenes’ look like you've got plans to kill this woman. There she is, in that folded-and-unfolded-then-folded-again photo. Now here you are, staring at her from outside the window which isn’t at all weird and is completely the way you prepare to say hi to a friend before a road trip."
"But just to be absolutely clear, the reason you're not looking at the fucking treacherous winding road is because you're—once again—staring at your smiley woman friend who you may still be hoping to murder later. This video is supposed to be romantic, right? Right??"
"How far into his viewing of mediocre 2010 indie thriller Frozen—in which a group of friends get stuck on a ski lift and mostly just sit there until they die—did Alex Milligan think 'if you mashed this up with the video for ‘Last Christmas’ and gave it a happy ending this would actually make a lovely advert for pajamas'"
"After picking up renowned Austrian delicacy, pizza, you lead your friend through the darkened forest to a cabin. Just quickly though, where the hell are you? Where are their other friends? Did you book this other hidden and sinister cabin in advance? We’ve all been gone off that extra shot-ski vodka but this reads less as ‘cute’ and more ‘a perfect, secluded spot in which to do something terrible.’"
gifset #509234864 of alex laughing at something he says
context: he was asked about the fact that he names his guitars and sometimes keeps certain guitars for certain type of songs like how we know that valerie is used for love ballads because he won't wreck in the sway the strings usually end up breaking after bloodstream. anyway, he told a story about one of his newer guitars he named lennox and when he asked if he had the guitar with him he broke out into this really deep manly voice that caught everyone off guard and then they joked about how if the guitar had a voice it sounded like that. why do i stan this weirdo who acts like guitars are his friends i'll never know but here i am
also let's take a minute to say rip to some of the guitars he has used to their deaths in the past, you are gone but never forgotten
"People keep asking me how I stay grounded and I'd say that it's easier when you're surrounded by your roots."
"I'd say that I was a pretty good kid. Quiet. Tried to do the best with my studies but it was difficult for me and there was this one teacher who just really made the experience in class shit for the year I was in his class. No patience, no willingness to try and see what was going on, no excitement to teach. Always yelling, putting kids down, scary. This one night Owen decides it's for the best if we TP his house. Sure, sounds great. We get the toilet paper rolls, wait until it's dark out and then post up outside his house. We start throwing the toilet paper, we're having a blast, and the door opens, we freak out and run to a nearby bush to hide. Not his house. Not only was it not his house, these two beautiful girls come out and they're followed by their huge boyfriends who start yelling about breaking our limbs and finding us no matter what. So, we did what any courageous and bold heroes would do. We ran away."
"This one time Owen sent a sexy clown stripper to my flat as a birthday present. That was probably up there as one of the most horrifying things I've witnessed."
