Ryan Beatty Gives 'Hey L.A.' A Big Apple Remix

Ryan Beatty Gives ‘Hey L.A.’ A Big Apple Remix

After hearing his single “Hey L.A.,” it is crystal clear Ryan Beatty is a huge fan of the Golden State, but it was not until the MTV News team spent the day with the YouTube sensation that we learned he is a New York enthusiast as well.

While we were pretty sure our Big Apple tour, where MTV News’ Christina Garibaldi took him to Times Square, the Empire State Building and Central Park, had something to do with his newfound love for the city, it turned out our sightseeing adventure was not the only thing that won Beatty over.

See more from Ryan Beatty’s journey through New York

“I love Serendipity,” he told MTV News. “Their frozen hot chocolates are the best. Anyone that ever comes to New York, go to Serendipity. I can vouch for that. It’s amazing.”

To celebrate his admiration for NYC, the 17-year-old from Clovis, California, made a few changes to his ever-so-catchy new song especially for us!

What do you think of Ryan Beatty’s “Hey L.A.” New York remix? Let us know in the comments below!

Usher's BFF Obama And More: The Week In Instagrams

Usher’s BFF Obama And More: The Week In Instagrams

What gave Cody Simpson this lizard-like tongue?

“I had, like, five blue Warheads,” Simpson told MTV News. “After, like, three, I saw my tongue obviously started getting blue, and I was like, ‘I might as well have two more.’ “

Check out Cody Simpson’s sweet-and-sour story here!

Although we don’t know the entire story behind these next five Instagrams, they’re the MTV News team’s favorite from the week:

Zac Efron
Zac Efron posted this pic from the Philippines. The “Lucky One” star four-wheeled up the side of Mayon Volcano, an active volcano in the province of Albay, on the island of Luzon.

Lucy Hale
“Pretty Little Liars” star Lucy Hale snapped this Instagram with castmates Julian Morris, Keegan Allen and Tyler Blackburn. She captioned the photo “4 of my favorite gents,” which is a little confusing, since we only count three dudes in the picture … unless?

Usher
This political pic of Usher and President Obama received a lot of attention for the R&B superstar. Not only did it grace Instagram’s Popular feed, but it also obtained more than 13,000 likes and 737 comments and counting.

Tom Daley
It’s not all about diving for Tom Daley. The 18-year-old Olympian showed off his tobogganing skills in this Instagram picture earlier in the week. While the athlete proved he has what it takes to compete in the Summer Olympics, we’re taking bets that he won’t be joining Great Britain in bobsledding during the 2014 Winter Games.

The Wanted, Pink, Miley Cyrus Make My First-Ever VMAs Incredible!

The Wanted, Pink, Miley Cyrus Make My First-Ever VMAs Incredible!

What an incredible night! On Thursday, I co-hosted my very first VMA pre-show on the red carpet and words can’t really express what an amazing experience it was.

After rehearsing for the show for a few hours this morning, it finally really sunk in that it was really all happening when I put on my dress and walked up to take my position.

The preshow kicked off and my first guest who was none other than VMA performer Pink and her husband Carey Hart (The two of them are adorable together and were sneaking kisses and hugging before we went live.) Pink looked stunning in her rocker chic gown and it was the perfect way to kick off the night.

Yet, it was just getting started. I also got the chance to talk to the super stylish Rita Ora who showed off what was in her clutch … a blow torch, I can only imagine what that was for!

Next up were the guys of The Wanted (happy birthday, Max!), who are always so much fun to talk to, since you never really know what’s going to happen when you interview them!

And the night concluded with a fun chat with the lovely Miley Cyrus. She revealed that she is releasing new music soon and trust me, I saw her engagement ring up close; Liam did a great job!

I still have to pinch myself that this really happened, but I have to say I couldn’t have done it without Sway Calloway, Jim Cantiello, James Montgomery and of course the entire MTV News team. Thanks for making this such a memorable night!
