Many people know Dylan Minnette as Clay Jensen from 13 Reasons Why and Wes Hicks from Scream

Similarly, he has been part of other notable projects like Goosebumps, Don’t Breathe, The Open House, Grey’s Anatomy, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Supernatural, among others.

However, most people don’t know that Minnette is a singer and guitarist with a band of his own. His band name is Wallows, and Minnette serves as the alternative rock band’s lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist. 

Formation of Dylan Minnette’s band

Minnette, along with Braeden Lemasters (guitar/vocals) and Cole Preston (guitar/drums), make up the Los Angeles-based alternative rock band Wallows.

The band talked about the formation of their band with Bustle in September 2022. It first started when Minnette met Lemasters when they were ten years old. 

They were in their hometown of Los Angeles and talked about vintage music. Soon, the duo bonded over their love for music. 

Then, years later, they saw Preston at a music program. They saw him behind the drums, which fascinated both Minnette and Lemasters.

Lemasters noted that there was an instant connection with Preston. He said, “I remember it just felt amazing. It was just a connection there.”

Minnette, Lemasters, and Preston first founded a band with the band name, Join the Band as adolescents in 2011. At that time, they had a bass guitarist named Zack Mendenhall. 

They were GigMasterz students at the Keyboard Galleria Music Center in Southern California. Later, They renamed themselves Feaver and performed on the 2011 Warped Tour.

They also went under the moniker The Narwhals until deciding on Wallows in 2017. Mendenhall has since left the band, and the trio now plays as Wallows.

In April 2017, the band began releasing songs independently, starting with ‘Pleaser,’ which peaked at number two on the Spotify Global Viral 50 chart.

Wallows signed with Atlantic Records in 2018 and released their major-label debut EP, Spring. The band’s debut album, Nothing Happens, was released in 2019 and includes the hit ‘Are You Bored Yet?’

It was followed by the 2020 EP, Remote. In 2022, the band released their second album, Tell Me That It’s Over.

The bond between the bandmates

If you have been working together for a long time, fighting once in a while is inevitable. The same goes for Wallows.

The trio is best friends, but at times, they have disagreements. They joked with Bustle that they fight it out physically.

Minnette said, “We normally fight it out, like physically, with some beatdowns.”

They explained their bond as best friends and bandmates in an interview with Spin in April 2022. Lemasters noted that all three have “pretty strong mindsets,” making it inevitable for them to have disagreements.

However, they respect each other and their opinions. Moreover, being best friends, the three of them know each other inside and out, which helps them agree.

He said, “We know the highs and lows of each other. And I feel like it does just help. What else could you want than to be in a band like that?”

Preston agreed with the guitarist and added that being friends was the “most exciting thing about being in a band.” They imagined themselves like they are now when they were kids.

And eventually, they got to do it — something that was fun for the trio. Minnette pointed out that their relationship was not just limited to their band.

For the singer, Lemasters and Preston are the only people he hung out with. He said they are the only ones he could think of if he wants to do something that is not work-related.

He said, “The only people I think of asking to hang out are these guys. I’m like ‘oh, I’m gonna go hang out with my friends … yo, Cole and Braeden, what are you guys doing tonight?’ It’s all easy with these guys.”

Zoe LaVerne Gets Pregnancy Test To See If She’s Pregnant Again

Zoe LaVerne is an American TikTok influencer, YouTuber, internet personality, and singer. LaVerne gave birth to her first daughter in 2020 with her husband, Dawson Day.

It seems like LaVerne wants to get pregnant again. She took to social media to show off her pregnancy test and her desire to have a second kid. 

Is Zoe LaVerne pregnant again?

On January 25, 2023, LaVerne took to Snapchat to reveal that she might be pregnant again. She said that she had had some pregnancy symptoms lately.

As a result, she believed that there were chances that she had conceived her second baby. So, she said that she might do a pregnancy test to confirm her speculation.

She confessed she was low-key scared to do the test. But a few moments later, she took the test and uploaded a story on Snapchat saying, “my heart is racing I’m nervous lol.”

A few moments later, she posted another story to reveal that she was not pregnant. The pregnancy test showed only one line — indicating that she was not pregnant with a second kid.

LaVerne was disappointed with the result, and it seems she really wants to get pregnant again. She wrote, “i’m sad but it’s ok!! when it’s my time, it’ll be my time.”

Looking at her message, the TikToker might try to get pregnant again in the near future. Fans were unhappy with her stories since many complained that she was trying to pull a “Cody Orlove.”

Orlove was LaVerne’s former boyfriend, and the break up between the two was bad. After the split, they moved on and stayed in a relationship with other people.

Recently, Orlove took to Snapchat to upload a story of her girlfriend showing off a pregnancy test. This led many to believe that Orlove was going to be a father soon.

However, he later clarified that the test said: “not pregnant.” He noted how he got congratulatory messages from fans and followers, but the symptoms were just a “jump scare.”

Many accused him of click-baiting his fans and followers. Now, they are accusing LaVerne of the same.

Is Zoe LaVerne a bad mother?

Since LaVerne expressed her desire to give birth to a second baby, many have noted that she should not be doing so. They have complained about her being a bad mother to her first child, Emersyn. 

When she gave birth to Emersyn, the TikToker had an emergency C-section since her baby was premature, and she claimed that she almost died. Following the birth, Emersyn had to stay at Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for quite some time.

For LaVerne, this meant that her income from socials was put to hold. As a result, she did not have a steady flow of income to take care of her baby.

So, she opted for the easiest mechanism to make fast money —  OnlyFans. She offered her fans and followers exclusive photos of her daughter for $15.

LaVerne told Insider selling the pictures “was a way to make money to pay for her extended stay in the hospital and spend more time and focus on her.”

However, this did not sit well with LaVerne’s fans and followers. They complained that she was a bad mother for selling the pictures of her baby.

Moreover, they pointed out that there were different types of people on the internet, and Emersyn’s pictures may be misused. Taking this as an example, many have asked LaVerne not to get pregnant again and have a second baby.

Rachael Lange Issues An Apology For Deleted Tweets Using N Word

Since January 20, 2023, Rachael Lange has been facing a massive backlash.

This happened as soon as she was seen holding hands with Dylan O’Brien. People thought she was his girlfriend, so they started researching her.

Soon, they were mortified to find out that Lange was a racist who did not hesitate to use the n word. Moreover, she admitted to being a pedophile, claiming to like “small black children.”

To make matters worse, she had now-deleted tweets about her hating Taylor Swift. O’Brien and Swift are very close, and to see O’Brien’s alleged girlfriend slut-shaming Swift was horrifying to a lot of people. 

Needless to say, Lange was called out for her actions. The model deleted tweets and blocked several users as well following the backlash.

Regardless, the damage had been done, and people demanded an apology from her. The Elite Model Management NYC  model private her Twitter and, possibly, hoped that the controversy would die down.

But since it did not, Lange took to Twitter to apologize for her actions.

Rachael Lange’s apology

On January 23, 2022, Lange apologized for her actions via a post on Twitter, claiming she was “mortified and ashamed” of her old posts.

She “wholeheartedly” apologized for the now-deleted tweets. She claimed that she was disgusted by her behavior and the way she spoke.

“I would like to wholeheartedly apologize for past tweets of mine. I am mortified and ashamed that they exist; and am truly disgusted that I ever spoke that way,” she wrote.

She admitted that she heard the people’s concerns and issued an apology for the pain she had caused. “All I can say is that I hear you all and am sorry for the pain I’ve caused and contributed to,” she wrote. 

She took responsibility and accountability for her actions and claimed that she was ignorant at the time. She promised that she was not the same anymore.

“I want to make it abundantly clear that I take full responsibility,” she explained. “I was extremely ignorant and while I do not remotely resonate with the things I once said, there is zero justification for my ever having said them.”

At last, she sincerely apologized for hurting people with her words. “I understand the significance that my words have and am deeply sorry for the hurt I have caused,” she concluded.

Reaction to Rachael Lange’s apology 

Even though Lange apologized, people were not happy with it. Many complained that her apology was insincere and that she simply did it to save her face.

Moreover, people noted that after the racist tweets and her using the n-word surfaced, Lange’s first reaction was to delete the tweets. Not only that, but she also blocked the people who called her out.

The netizens pointed out that this was Lange’s mechanism to hide her dirty past. They questioned the model and why was her first approach to delete the tweets and not issue an apology sincerely. 

After apologizing, Lange has not responded to anything on any platform.
