Teen Celebs’ Most Embarrassing Moments

We rounded up the stories about the times that made your favorite teen stars cringe, right here. Get ready to LOL!

Selena Gomez takes a spill.
Selena Gomez of “Wizards of Waverly Place” loves her fans, but she also adores footwear. When she decided to brave a set of stairs in a pair of killer heels to meet up with some admirers, things didn’t quite go as planned. Here’s what she told reporters at a red-carpet movie premiere: “I was doing a live taping of my show, and I fell because I was wearing these high heels down the stairs after saying hi to my fans. That was pretty bad.”

Justin Bieber gets bashful.
He’s a home-schooled pop phenom now, but before Justin Bieber blew up, he attended a regular school and had regular kid probs. “I was in class doing a project, and one of my best friends thought it would be funny if he would kind of change my project around,” Justin told a teen mag. “He put a picture of something stupid on it, and everyone started laughing at me. I felt really bad.”

Taylor Swift has tall troubles.
Country singer Taylor Swift is a towering beauty, but sometimes her height can lead to some really awkward moments. “I’ll always be hitting my head on the side of a car or going through door,” she once admitted to a music reporter. “I think I’ve gotten minor concussions from hitting my head on things.”

Miranda Cosgrove’s pal pulls a prank.
Miranda Cosgrove and her BFF were spying on a guy when the “iCarly” star’s friend pulled a fast one! “My best friend and I, we’re always driving by this guy’s house she really likes,” Miranda told a magazine. “This time, she was begging me to walk up to his house to see if he was home. So I got out of the car and went up to look into the house like a total stalker, and she drove away pretending to leave me there! She came back like 30 seconds later, but I thought she had abandoned me.”

Josh Hutcherson has not-so-smooth moves.
“The Hunger Games” star Josh Hutcherson should have no problem impressing dates, but he recently confessed that he could use a little more finesse in the cuddle department. In a magazine interview, he talked about trying to get close to a girl he liked, when a fumble nearly ruined the evening! “I was on a date, and we were sitting at dinner,” explained Josh. “I tried to put my arm around her -- I was doing the yawn thing where you lift your arms up. As I did that, I hit the table and spilled a drink.”

Make it a Movie Night ... With a Twist!

Allow us to introduce you to the awesomeness that results when you combine two of your favorite things: movies and karaoke -- duh! It’s called movie-oke, and all you have to do to get in on the fun is grab a few DVDs and invite some pals over.

Here’s how it works: You hit the mute button, play a movie clip with the subtitles option on, and let each of your friends read the lines of a different character out loud. It’s a blast -- and we’ve got a few sweet ideas for how to put the perfect finishing touches on your movie-oke night!

Make the VIP List
Movie-oke works best with smaller groups, so try to keep your guest list to four or five friends. Once you’ve decided who makes the cut, it’s time to send out invitations. Take a few ticket stubs from movies you saw recently and tape them around the edge of a white piece of paper, like a frame. Then write the party deets in the middle of the page and photocopy the whole thing a few times for an awesome DIY invite.

Choose a Theme
Are your girls obsessed with chick flicks? Does your crew love musicals? Or maybe old Disney movies are your thing. Whichever way, pick one movie (or more) you know everyone in the gang can get into. Movie-oke is most fun when everyone has seen the scene you’re re-enacting a bajillion times before.

Snack Time!
Fun-size versions of movie theater candies make the perfect snacks. And, of course, you need popcorn. Spice it up by sprinkling on a little bit of cinnamon-sugar, or chili powder and Parmesan cheese. Just drop a little bit of it into the bag after it comes out of the microwave, hold the bag closed while you shake it up, and then empty the popcorn into a bowl. So simple -- and so yummy!

Primp Your Place
Snag some streamers in your fave colors, and use a marker to write famous movie lines on ’em before hanging them around the party pad. For a fun game, leave the movie titles off the quotes and see which of your flick-obsessed friends can ID the most lines.

Up Your Game
If you want to mix up the movie-oke festivities, pause the flick mid-scene and ask your friends if any of them knows which line comes next. Then hit play to see who’s right -- and who’s hilariously off. Even if no one knows the lines by heart, hearing everyone’s guesses will definitely make you all LOL.

Do Them a Favor
Send everyone home with a parting gift that keeps on giving: a new DVD (raid a garage sale, the dollar store or Goodwill for super-thrifty finds) and a bag of microwave popcorn. Maybe one of them will host another movie-oke night next time around!

The Hunger Games: Willow Shields Plays the Fame Game!

The only thing that might be better than The Hunger Games premiering on the big screen last March is the blockbuster finally coming to DVD this month for your viewing pleasure in the comfort of your own home!

No one is more thrilled about the wild popularity of the books-turned-film-series than star Willow Shields, who plays Primrose Everdeen, little sister to Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss. In real life, the 12-year-old has a twin sis, Autumn, who is also an actress, and an older brother River. Here, the girl from New Mexico spills on how life is different since snagging her breakout role.

Congrats on the movie’s success! How have things changed for you since The Hunger Games premiered?

Willow Shields: Thank you so much! It’s completely changed. I mean, I would never expect to be a part of something like this, so it’s insane. I got to go to the [Nickelodeon] Kids’ Choice Awards -- that to me is a weird sentence.

Nickelodeon is known for sliming celebrities. If you could slime anyone, who would it be?

W.S.: It would probably be either Dayo Okeniyi, who played Thresh, or Alexander Ludwig, who played Cato [in The Hunger Games], because those two are like my brothers, and they also make fun of each other all of the time. I think it would be pretty hilarious if they got slimed.

Unfortunately, many of the characters from the first film don’t make it to Catching Fire, the next movie in the series. What do you miss about working with The Hunger Games cast?

W.S.: I just miss spending every day with my Hunger Games family. We became so close, and it’s so weird that we’re now so far apart. But we still keep in touch and go out to Umami Burger [a Los Angeles burger joint] and get sushi all of the time.

You’ve had some gorgeous red-carpet looks. What’s your favorite outfit you’ve put together during your downtime with the crew?

W.S.: Well, I love animals, and my favorite outfit was this sweater I have with a little fox on it and then I tucked it into high-waisted shorts. That was really cute.

Awesome Soundtrack for Summer 2012!

Songs are as much a part of summer as seashells and shaved ice. The music that marks your sunny season’s main events will evoke sentimental memories for summers yet to come. … so let’s get down to it:

John Mayer, Born and Raised

This album is packed with breezy tracks, each like a breath of fresh air. And it’s something everyone in the fam can agree on while crammed into a tiny hotel room together, so toss it in your suitcase when packing for the summer vacation.

Best time to play: Road trip …

Our fave song: Turn off the car’s A/C, roll down the windows and crank up “Queen of California.”

Beach House, Bloom

Tough to resist including a band called Beach House in a summer roundup, right? Maybe you’ve heard the dreamy “Myth” or “Lazuli,” which get righteous radio rotation. The Baltimore-based band’s Frightened Eyes Tour hits Europe and the U.K. through August before making rounds in the U.S.

Best time to play: Skipping barefoot in the clover

Our fave song: We love “The Hours.”… because time is just an illusion anyway.

Kylie Minogue, The Best of Kylie Minogue

Talk about a CD release pah-tay -- the pop goddess kicked off her greatest hits release a few months back at London’s Buckingham Palace for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert. Who doesn’t love “Can’t Get You Out of My Head,” a throwback to summer 2001? But really go retro by time-tripping to old-school hits like “The Loco-Motion.”

Best time to play: Pool party!

Our fave song: “Kids” has a beat that’s funky and spunky. …so shake it, monkey!

Justin Bieber, Believe

OK, we know you can’t get “Boyfriend” out of your head. But what we love most about The Bieb’s newest CD are his hookups with Ludacris, Big Sean, Nicki Minaj and Drake. (Just Drake -- not to be confused with former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell, who’s been blasting Bieber with disses on Twitter.)

Best time to play: On roller skates and wearing ear buds

Our fave song: “Catching Feelings” is a softly sweet detour from the fast-paced dance tracks.

The Smashing Pumpkins, Oceania

The Pumpkins have gone through the blender when it comes to band mates, but they’re still going strong. Oceania is high energy that dips into pockets of moodiness. And, heck, a girl can get moody …

Best time to play: It’s 100 degrees outside so you’re staying in your room today.

Our fave song: “I was dead set on making an album where every song was just as valuable as any other, ignoring the claptrap you hear about needing a single,” says Pumpkin-head Billy Corgan. Cool. We still like “Pinwheels” best. (But, um, could do without the annoying intro.)

Cody Simpson, Preview to Paradise

We’ve tried and tried to score an interview with Cody, but no go. Still, he’s cute and gives good pop (and he’s got a cool rainbow-color beach towel on his site’s store). Preview is just a toe-dip into full-on Paradise, out this fall.

Best time to play: On the beach

Our fave song: We love the acoustic-guitar vibe of “Gentleman.”

Eden’s Edge, Eden’s Edge

If you’re a country music fan, you know this plucky trio’s glad-that-other-girl-is-gone-so-I-can-have-him-now anthem, “Amen,” released last year. The band’s full-length summer CD rounds out at 10 songs -- or you can get the extended 13-song special-edition version … only at Cracker Barrel. Now that’s country!

Best time to play: While catching fireflies

Our fave song: Beat the heat with “Skinny Dippin’.”
