Casting Call - MTV's The Paper

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! MTV is casting for The Paper, a new reality show that delves into the ins and outs of a high school newspaper. Get more info right here so you can apply to be on the show!

The Paper - MTV's Latest Project

The Paper may not sound as exciting as American Idol or Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, but trust us, it will be! MTV crews and cameras want to come into your school to get the inside scoop on your high school newspaper. They want to find out what goes on behind the scenes of the newspaper and follow you around as you search for the latest breaking news and battle it out for who and what goes on the front page. MTV also wants to know about the lives of the newspaper staff outside of school, like who you're crushin' on and who's crushin' on you! Being selected for The Paper could launch your future journalism career... or just put you in the spotlight and send you to Hollywood, much like Laguna Beach did for Kristin Cavallari.

The Paper - Calling All Student Reporters

The Paper is accepting applications via video submission, so here's what you need to do. Make a video of a tour of your newspaper office, a typical staff meeting and sit-down interviews with all the staff members and advisors. The sit-down interview includes questions like what grade you're in, what your responsibilities on the newspaper staff are, why you're interested in the news, what your hobbies are, who you're dating and a whole slew of other questions. Take as much time as you need to answer the questions and be yourself cuz MTV wants to know the real you, not someone who's just putting on a show for the cameras.

The Paper - Video Application Details

When making your video, you'll have to use a miniDV, DVD or VHS. Send your video tape, along with a recent copy of your newspaper, to:

MTV Networks

770 Broadway, #10-58D

New York City, New York 10003

Attn: Claresa Mandola

There's no deadline, but they want your video application ASAP - that means now! If you have any questions, just email the producers

Talk to your parents about it. Tell them you didn't like your Christmas gift, and don't let your brother boss you around. Your parents can, your brother can't. Your parents gave you life, sorry to tell you but they can do anything they want if it's legal. But your brother can't. Let your parents know that you shouldn't have gotten in trouble for the stuff he doesn't. Tell them he makes you feel really awful and you don't like it. If they're good people they'll understand.

I would stop being friends with her. I mean she should understand that it'd be mean to do that. It's hard to help your friend get through a breakup when you're dating the same person. Plus you don't even know if she was trying to break you guys up so she could be with him.

You want to know if he likes you or not? Just ask him. It's not as bad as people say-I mean, it's a question. It looks like he does, so he probably does. It's not that big of a deal.

Talk to your friend. Tell her that this is the first guy that's ever liked you but you don't want her to get mad at you for stealing him from her. But understand she likes him too so don't get mad if she doesn't want you dating him. Nicely decide which of you should get him instead of the other. Chances are she might be thinking the same thing.
