Reunited with The Wanted boys at Fusion Festival!

Hello beautiful people!

Since the last time I wrote I had a lovely homecoming as I travelled back to England to perform with the boys at the fusion festival! It was fun to hang out with the lads again, and it was awesome performing for our amazing fans. There is nothing better than the feeling of serenading the people I love! It was a short and hectic trip, but there is no place like home and I am so glad we did it! And I’m…glad ..you ..all …came.. meh heh heh

To this lovely girl below, thank you for making this sign. I loved it a lot. There were loads of great signs ! Cheers!

When I got back to the States I was shocked to hear that the talented Joan Rivers has passed away. That woman was hilarious. May she rest in peace.

My return to LA also involved my cell phone ringing off the hook because my friends and colleagues were checking to see if I was all right because a incident I got into was all over the press.

siva4

A few weeks back I was in New York for some work engagements. A member of my camp and I were walking down the street and we saw a man yelling at a girl. I was concerned so I walked over to make sure the girl was ok. Unfortunately things got physical, and I got a black eye out of it. But, luckily the girl did not get hit. She ran off before I could talk to her, but I hope wherever she is, she is ok and far away from that man!

I didn’t want to talk about this story, but now that it’s out in the press I have to say that no girl deserves to get hit, and every man should treat a woman like a princess. If your man is not treating you like one then he has problems and you best find someone else! Also I know several of my fans were concerned about my bruises, and I want to let them know I am fine (should’ve seen the other guy lol). It was just a few bruises and a black eye that have all healed now.

I am still working hard in Hollywood. And I have to say I’m loving it! Can’t wait to write to you all again!

Empire State of Mind!

Hello lovely people!

This week I was in the Empire state of mind as I celebrated my buddy CEO of Skam Artist, Sujit’s birthday in New York.  A lot of cool people were in attendance including, Lil’ Jon and Nick Cannon.  Had to stop myself from screaming “Turn Down for What” to Lil Jon, ha!

I also shared my tips for men’s Autumn fashion on TV with Fox5 while I was there.  Autumn fashion always makes me miss the UK & Dublin. Chatted style with the team at Teen Vogue as well. Got a chance to share my thoughts on menswear. Simple is always better for men!

Love the food in New York! Between the Standard East, Crosby street and ABC Kitchen I have to hit the gym extra hard this week.

Get a load of my amazing view….

Had to fly back from New York to attend my agency CAA’s pre awards party. It was a lot of fun and met some really cool actors also represented by CAA. It ended up being a pretty late night … they sure know how to party.

Nareesha and I are happy to be back with Mylo. He didn’t get to come to New York and was well excited to see us! Nareesha is busy now planning his birthday party. It’s a Hollywood thing…

Also got time to spend with the Jay Bird this week. Between a pub quiz and chilling in the Hills uncle bird managed to make sure that Mylo was well hydrated.

Busy week ahead, back in the studio and acting classes, C ya!

From the West Coast to the East Coast with friends and family

Hello lovely people!

This week, my boy Jay-bird A.K.A Jay McGuiness visited me in La La land.  We got together with our band’s drummer Tucker and headed to one of our favorite bars on Sunset Blvd #NoDoy. We were craving cotton candy so we also went to the best place in LA to get it at the Saddle Ranch.  It’s always a good time with Jay. Wish I got to see him more often!

I was busy this week with my cover shoot for North America’s premier Asian magazine Anokhi, worked hard to get ripped for the shirtless shots! Had fun doing the photo-shoot at the Andaaz hotel in West Hollywood.  They featured me as their fall fashion icon and all I have to say is that I am flattered.

Sivablog-1

Sivablog-3

I would like to give a special thanks to the Anokhi team for putting together a wonderful shoot.  The best part of the shoot was to have my buddy Mylo featured with me.  Stay tuned for Mylo’s print debut!

Also just landed in New York City, I love this city’s skyline and pizza!  Came to attend my mate, CEO of Skam Artist’s, birthday. Had a blast at the party with Lil Jon and Nick Cannon.  I am in the Empire State of Mind. (In Newwwww Yoooooorrrrrk!)

Sivablog-4

I have visited this city so many times, but I am excited every time I visit the Big Apple.

I have loads of meetings and interviews to do while I am here, but as they say work hard and play hard.

photophoto-11

Nareesha loves it in NY because it’s urban like it is in London.  You can take the girl out of the city, but not the city out of the girl. It looks like we may be living bi-coastally soon.

I have to get back to my commitments, but will talk to all of you soon.

Love you all,

Remembering Robin, boxing sessions and a new haircut…

Hello beautiful people!

First of all, I would like to pay my respects to one of the most wonderful, talented and funny actors to ever grace this earth, Robin Williams. Such sad news and a huge loss to the world. May he rest in peace. I have such fond memories of him from my childhood, as I am sure you all do too. Tonight I will be watching one of my all time favourite movies “Bicentennial Man” in remembrance of him. robinwilliams-z

Thought that you might also enjoy my absolute favourite tweet from Robin Williams. HA!

So this week in LA LA land I got news that I am heading to the East Coast next week for an event in New York! I love New York, the last time I was there I got to catch up with my friend, famous radio host Elvis Duran, and got to meet my amazing fans who spotted me around the city and came to The Wanted concert! I am ready to get in the “Empire State of Mind”!

I hit up the boxing ring last week with the amazing producer of 2 Broke Girls, Will and Grace and loads of other popular shows, Jhoni Marchinko.

Also I bumped into Kunal Nayyar (AKA: Raj from The Big Bang Theory)- such a nice guy and he was born in London right near my apartment there.

sivaboxing1-z

My schedule is crazy with events, studio time and acting coaching. In the evening I’ve been practicing my lines with Nareesha who thinks she is some sort of Oscar-winning actress when reading with me. Seriously funny stuff! The other professional commitments my team sets up for me have kept me running around like a headless chicken, but amongst all the chaos exercise helps me keep calm.

Got a hairdo this week too… thoughts in the comments box below :P

sivahair-z

My stories in LA LA land have been crazy, and I am sure it will only get crazier in the Big Apple next week! It just wouldn’t be me if it weren’t, ha-ha!

Work hard play hard in LA!

Hello from La La land! It’s been another busy week working hard in the studio on all my projects. But, you know what they say, work hard/play hard! I caught-up with friends and surfed this week for the first time in ages, it was narly duuude! We had a great time and I managed to stay up on my board most of the time, HA! (I am starting to feel well Cali!) No worries though, my heart will always be in the UK and Ireland!

siva1new

I also decided to unwind this week at the Montage Hotel with Nareesha and my buddy Kendrick Sampson from the Vampire Diaries and Gracepoint. We actually got to know each other on the red carpet of the Young Hollywood Awards. It’s cool to make friends amongst all the red-carpet chaos! While we were leaving The Montage a few of the fans came up to me at the hotel, and before I knew it a whole lot of fans were around me. I don’t know how you guys do it, but you always find me ha-ha! I love it!

I also caught up with my beautiful friend who is one of Bollywood’s biggest stars, Priyanka Chopra. She invited Nareesha and me to her cousin’s wedding in LA. We had a blast! I love dancing at Indian weddings.

siva2new

It’s been another crazy week, but was great because I got to spend time with good friends. And it wasn’t just a good week for me; it was good for Mylo too as the little dude is rocking a new cut that makes him look even better!

siva3

We thought he had a twin across the world. But the below picture is actually a teddy bear lol

siva4

Gotta get back to it! I will bring you guys more stories about my crazy life in the Hollywood Hills next week.

See ya later,

Hollywood madness at The Young Hollywood Awards!

Hello beautiful people!

This week was a whole lot of Hollywood madness at The Young Hollywood Awards.

siva1

The funny and talented Kelly Osbourne hosted the show where I presented with the lovely and very little Ariel Winter from the TV show, Modern Family. I had to kneel down so I didn’t look like a giant next to her when we were presenting, HA! I think Ariel is fantastic, and an amazing actress, just had to poke fun at my petite friend!

siva2

Had a good time catching up with some of Hollywood’s best young actors. Bumped into Matt McGorry from Orange Is The New Black (have you been watching it? Such a funny show) and Kendrick Sampson from Vampire Diaries & Gracepoint.

siva3

Also bumped into Jason Dohring from Veronica Mars (such a nice guy) and my old buddy James Maslow from Big Time Rush.

siva4

But the biggest VIP of all was the lovely Grace Kesablak, a 10 year old girl from Make-A-Wish. Was amazing to meet this beautiful little girl.

sivablog-z

I have to give a special shout-out to my stylist David Thomas, I got a lot of compliments on my outfit. My crazy looking pants fit my crazy personality or at least that’s what Nareesha tells me.

siva6

I was supposed to be at the fashion film awards as well this week, but unfortunately I couldn’t make it because it was on the same night. Wish the shows weren’t on the same night! I heard from my friends that it was a fun event.

As usual I had a hectic week, I spent time in the studio, had back to back meetings, and events.

siva7

But the best part of the week as always is getting to connect with the fans. Had fun doing so at the Young Hollywood Awards!

siva8

I have another exciting week ahead in La La land, and can’t wait to share it with you next week!

See you later

Boxing, videoshoots and waterfalls in LA

Hello Again!!

It’s been a great week in LA.

So this week I have decided to do what LA people do and go train at a boxing club in West Hollywood. It was intense!!! I left the club looking worse for wear while I was greeted by paparazzi. Not the best look but hey at least you all know I’m keeping fit lol.

This is me with Beth Behrs (from Two Broke Girls) and my trainer Martin (no 1. trainer)

siva1-z
Im planning on taking Nareesha with me for boxing next week,  I wonder if she can hack it!

Speaking of the missus, Nareesha and I did a video shoot with People.com. We played a fun UK vs. LA trivia game. You can tell in the video that we love LA, but our hearts are in England. Stay tuned for the video…

siva3

The rest of the week was full of back-to-back meetings, projects and studio time, but I did make a point of going to Malibu State Park and checked out the waterfalls and natural landscape. All I know is I should have worn more suitable clothes because it was hot!!! (The black jeans were a mistake…durrr)

siva4

siva5
Sadly we couldn’t take Mylo on the trek but it’s okay he doesn’t mind too much. That dog needs a hair cut big time and the American food is giving him a belly! I’ve got to walk him three times a day lol.

siva6

Anyway gotta get back to the LA madness, but will catch up next week.

See you next week!

Co-hosting with Mario Lopez and my new material

Hi guys ! Another hot! week in LA (seriously does it get hotter than this? Hope all of you are doing well :)

First of all, can we talk about the Football final ?!? (Sorry to all the non- football fans)

I was supporting Argentina with a few friends in the hills and my voice went from shouting so much… grrr not amused. Congrats to Germany though, what a goal!!!

 

Goal

This past Wednesday I co-hosted Extra TV with Mario Lopez. You remember him from Save By The Bell right?! Well he is a huge presenter out here in L.A.

It was a fun day! It’s good to see Mario again – he’s a genuine guy and reminds me of my older brother.

mario-lopez-saved-by-bell

The lights on-set were soooooo bright, I don’t know how Mario does it. (basically I squinted a lot) Also, there were so many fans who came out to watch me on Extra, so thank you so much!#lovetothefans

 

IMG_4892

So you all know that I’m still adjusting to living in L.A so don’t judge me. The other day, it took me about 20 mins to work out how to put petrol in the car. What?! ..They do it differently here! I am a MAN so I didn’t ask anyone for help and that’s why it took me so long and it didn’t help that the station cashier was staring at me so much!… like two laser beams on the back of my head.

 

IMG_7858

You’ll be pleased to know, I’ve been in the studio a lot lately and I’m really excited to show you what I’ve got. It’s gonna be very different to the old stuff but you’re gonna like it. Been working with some great producers so I am very happy!

Obviously there are moments when I miss home but I’ve got Nareesha and Mylo with me so it’s not so bad and also the support on twitter is great so thank you. Also to soften the blow I found an English/Irish imports shop so managed to grab a few food goodies to help fill my stomach with pieces of home ;)

A few of you on twitter have been asking me for a selfie so here it is. And if you would like me to feature anything in my future blogs be sure to add your comments below and I will check them out.

Thanks for reading and Love you all xx

Hanging in Hollywood

Hello again! Another beautiful week in the Hollywood hills – still trying to get used to driving on the right side of the road though, lol!

driving

Apart from the blazing heat (as a former London resident my body’s a little confused) – really love it here! The hiking is scenic and a good workout, and I am getting to see my Hollywood friends more often! I do miss my friends & family in London though, and can you believe they don’t have a Nandos here!!!!!

hiking

friends

It’s been a good week for me. I got to catch my friends, the Canadian band Magic! perform at the El Rey Theater. They were wicked!

magic

I also watched the Belgium vs. US game at a pub. Nice to see Americans passionate about football. Can’t wait to see who makes the finals. Who do you think will make it?

This past week was my first 4th of July in America, their Independence Day! Americans usually celebrate by watching fireworks, and indulging in other festivities. I celebrated with my American friends at a pool party. What better way to celebrate!

Looking forward to co-host with Mario Lopez on Extra this week! Be sure to check me out!! Speak again soon. Luv you all!

Ps: Mylo found it hard to adjust to the LA lifestyle – he did a poop in the Beverly Shopping Centre . It was highly embarrassing :/

New beginnings!

Hello my friends, from sunny Los Angeles! I can hardly believe that I’ve been in LA for nearly two weeks now – Mylo is great and absolutely loving the weather…just in case you were wondering about my little guy.

I’m really excited to be blogging for HELLO!, and thought this could be a good way to keep everyone in the know about my new journey – insert (cheesy?) lyric “here I go again on my ownnnn….” thanks for that, Journey.

New start in LA

New start in LA

These past two weeks have been a bit chaotic. The flight over was really tough…we were extremely jet lagged for about three days, but you know me me…I bounced back and made a full recovery. My first weekend here I went hiking in Runyon Canyon – wow! The view was awesome.

I must say, it’s very refreshing to do so many active things out doors and with nature. We’ve also moved in to a new flat (or “apartment” as they say here), and I’ve become an expert furniture assembler and mover.

I’m thinking of opening a part time moving and assembly business…I love it THAT much. No I don’t. LOL. Been catching up with old friends, making some new friends. Hmmm…what else?

I moved two weeks ago

I moved two weeks ago

Last week I attended The Thirst Project’s annual Thirst Gala, my very first red carpet as an official Los Angeles resident. The Thirst Project is an amazing organisation that brings safe, clean drinking water to people around the world.

I was so shocked to learn that almost 1 billion people on the planet do not have access to safe, clean water, and 4,100 kids under the age of five will die today from drinking dirty water.

Pretty crazy. You guys should definitely get involved. I’ve also been back in the studio doing what I absolutely love…writing and recording. I’m so excited for you to hear what I’m working on. It’s going to be big!

Thirst Project

Thirst Project

Now that you’re pretty much up to date on what I’ve been up to since the big move…I’m going to get a little mushy for a moment.

I thought you deserved to know my final thoughts on “things” with the band. Firstly, each one of you has touched my life and made me a better person each and every day. Please know that this is NOT a goodbye, so put those tears and tissues away!!

We’ve been like family, you and me, but it’s weird because I feel like you’ve only had a small taste of who I am and what I sound like. I was put in a role with the band that I didn’t really like, and it wasn’t easy, because I was prevented from being me and having a voice.

Time to spread my feathers

Time to spread my feathers

Mark Whalberg said it best (yes another cheesy moment) – “The peacock needs to spread its wings and fly” lol — and I plan on doing just that :) So with my next step, and in this next phase, I’m SOOOOOOO excited to show you the other 60% of me that I couldn’t show you.

I’m so thankful for your support and I plan to continue doing what I love, so with this blog you’re gonna read about all of the stuff I’m doing – whether it’s making music, acting, or just sharing my thoughts on life. I’ll be posting every Tuesday, so stay tuned for next week…

Speak next week

Speak next week

This is just the beginning, so hold on tight and I can’t wait to see where we’ll end up next…together. You’ve made my days brighter, and I love you all. Talk again soon!
