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

  • Think your high school newspaper staff is newsworthy? Then head to MTV’s official site to submit your video application!

My mom can be that way too. There's nothing like that, you're exagerating, you dont even know what you're talking about. When all tthaat time I was going through it. She didn't have a clue honestly.

Two years ago my parents broke up. I was never really the same after that point. My mother she began to just not care about anything. She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting

theres this guy that i really REALLY like, im not sure if he likes me back. i put my mobile # on a piece of paper and slipped it in his locker, he hasn't texted or called me yet. Today at lunch i asked his friend to ask if he likes anyone but his friend keeps lying to me and won't tell me if he said anything. The guy and I were best friends in 5th grade but now that we're in different classes we don't talk much anymore. My friends said that i have a chance with him and that we have a lot in common, but im pretty sure he likes this other girl but im also pretty sure he likes me. I want to make a move but i don't wanna end our friendship i don't know what to do.

It's good to have both to talk too about things. But, what's the point of being with someone if you can't trust them enough to even tell them things?
