Letter from the Editor

Seasons are a constant reminder of change. And because we

know what season is coming next, we have that sense of

certitude and security in this cycle of life. These past few days

have been a difficult reminder of the illusion we cling to. The past

two strong earthquakes here in California have made us a little

nervous. Are we prepared? The answer is often a very shy yes.

We kind of prepare for the inevitable in life hoping it will not

happen. Some people are trying to "live" in a blissful denial. But is

it healthy for our soul? Most likely not.

While I was fearing a third and more powerful earthquake, I also

learned of the passing of 20 year old actor Cameron Boyce. It

shook me way more than the strongest earthquake ever could. I

had the pleasure of collaborating with this charismatic young man

when we launched TILTED magazine. I thought he was so perfect

for the concept I had in mind. Mark Twain said that “a man who

lives fully is prepared to die at any times” and Cameron sure was

the definition of that quote. He lived his life like a universe in

expansion; that is the only way I could describe the energy I felt in

his presence. You could feel it even if you just spent a couple of

hours with him. So I asked myself, “does that force die when we

die?” It seems unlikely that this energy we are expressing here is

just a burst of nothing to nothing. But rather, our impact remains

even after we are gone.

One thing we are all facing in this life are obstacles. So, while it

feels and seems easier at times to complain, to find excuses, to

blame others, and even hurt others with our actions and

decisions: by doing so, we are actually suffocating ourselves and

our energy. We feel anxious because we still believe we have

the ability to control the world around us. That third shake I was

dreading did not come but surely shifted (or realigned) something

in me. I realized you can affect someone’s life with just a meeting

and without even being aware of it. Only our ego likes to keep

records of things (good or bad) so we need to let that go in order

to live the life we are supposed to. That chance may not come

around so easily again so why jeopardize something greater than

“ourselves" for short term illusions? That is the reminder (along

with stocking up on non perishable food and water) this summer

has brought me so far.

With all my love.

Summer 2019 is the Summer of Max Ehrich.

He’s dominating summer airwaves

with his roles in two new hits. He stars as

Tate Watkins in a new Netflix film called

Walk. Ride. Rode. about real-life barrel

racing star Amberly Snyder who continued

to press on after becoming paralyzed;

in addition to Walk. Ride. Rodeo.,

Ehrich stars in a new Lifetime series titled

American Princess.

The two very contrasting projects allowed

Ehrich to flex his breadth as both

a comedic and dramatic actor. “I think

they’re just completely different genres,

so just the respect you want to pay to

the person or the event that the story is

based on definitely had a huge impact on

how I play the character.”

Since Walk. Ride. Rodeo was based on

a true story, Ehrich’s preparation for the

role differed a bit from fictional roles projects.

“I did a lot of research beforehand;

I wanted to be as informed as possible

as to the actual story. Even though my

character is fictional, I wanted to know

everything I know about the real life Amberly

so I could go into there having full

knowledge of the project I was entering

into.”

Despite the two projects contrasting

heavily, Ehrich still achieved something

he does with every character he plays:

learning about himself through his characters.

“For each character, I always bring

part of myself to relate to the characters

and so I can do it in the most truthful and

authentic way. I’d say characters also inform

me about aspects about myself that

I hadn’t necessarily seen on my own. It’s

a two way street.”

Though acting is one way for Ehrich to

interact with his inner self, music has

served as another important outlet for the

star. Ehrich has a deep passion for music,

something that is evident with his song in

Walk. Ride. Rodeo., which he wrote with

Amberly Snyder. “For many years I’ve

been playing characters in different projects,

and music is a way to express myself

without playing a role. It feels like I’m

taking off the mask and sharing my life

experience, my heart, so it’s a pretty vulnerable

experience. Been writing songs

for years and stuff, but it’s been this passion

I kept to myself. After the song were

placed in the film, I felt inspired to share

more after seeing the reaction that I was

affecting people. When you affect people

on a personal and emotional level, it inspires

you to continue.”

Just as Ehrich shines through on the

screen, his musical talent is evident as

well. He has an impressive musical vocabulary

that influences his music, including

the Beatles, 90s grunge, Daniel

Caesar, and John Mayer. “I really grew

up on John Mayer, who is a huge influence

for me. My music taste has allowed

myself to dive deep, especially as a guy in

society, we’re told to put on a tough face

and just move on. John Mayer was an

inspiration moving on because he’s really

vulnerable. He’s a huge inspiration.”

Ehrich’s respect for vulnerability and introspection

not only comes from his interest

in holistic healing, yoga, and meditation.

“I’m a big fitness guy as well. I

love going to the beach, I love anything

that’s nature oriented. I’m into holistic

herbs and healing. I’m always fascinated

by different ways we can heal our bodies

through natural ways, that’s really intriguing

to me.”

These interests and practices influence

Ehrich’s worldview, as he advocates for

appreciating the present. When asked

what he would advise his younger self to

do, he responded, “To not take myself so

seriously. I think that we’re in a culture

where we’re really defined by the things

that we do and our time here is a bit limited,

so I think it’s okay to enjoy the process.

It's okay to strive for a bit more but

I think It’s important to enjoy what is.”

As he continues to enjoy his current successful

summer, Ehrich does have plans

to continue to grow as an artist and share

his passions with the world. “I just want

to continue to dive into projects, like acting

roles that challenge me and continue

to bring me out of my comfort zone, I feel

like that’s the only way we can grow. I

want to put out my music and have an

impact on society in a positive way and a

way that get people thinking and feeling

more deeply.”

Be sure to catch Ehrich in Walk. Ride.

Rodeo. on Netflix, American Princess on

Lifetime in addition to listening to his latest

musical releases “Ride” and “Somebody

Else,” available on all music streaming

services.

exclusive

conversation

with

Sarah Jeffery


The charming and talented actress Sarah Jeffery has been making

moves recently with her role on the drama series CHARMED

and her role on DESCENDANTS 3, coming out August 2nd.

Having also starred on three seasons as Jennifer Lopez's daughter

on the drama series SHADES OF BLUE among other projects,

Jeffery has been making moves in the industry.

Beautiful and talented, Sarah Jeffery is on the rise and continues to

do so as she balances her two worlds.

Tell me more about your experience being one of the lead

roles on the drama series CHARMED.

I feel very grateful and lucky to have stepped into the role of

Maggie on Charmed. The show itself has such a strong message,

it’s very in line with my political views and is all for women

supporting women, which I think we could definitely use

right now. Additionally, Charmed is such an iconic show and

was so ahead of it’s time, I was so excited to be a part of a

new iteration of it. Maggie is also just such a fun character to

play, very multifaceted. She’s smart, caring, and empathetic,

but she's also a girly girl who's into fashion and I think its important

to remind young women that they can be both these

things and they don't have to fall into one category.

How does it feel knowing that the second season of

CHARMED has already been renewed?

It feels great. We worked really hard on the first season,

long hours, intense fight scenes, lots of magical elements of

course… I’m stoked to get to do it all again.

What do you look forward to the most in the second season?

I look forward to developing the magical side of things. Potential

new powers, more fighting and combat… I honestly have

no idea what they're cooking up in that writers room but I can

only hope it includes some of that!

The Disney Channel Original Film DESCENDANTS 3 is set

to come out in August. Which role do you play in it?

I play Audrey, Sleeping Beauty’s daughter. She was raised as

a princess and has an attitude to match. You get to see a new

side of her in Descendants 3, and I'm so stoked for people to

see what we created for this third film in the franchise.

What are some key differences you have had to adapt to

between filming a TV series and filming a movie?

9 pages a day. There are definitely pros and cons to both.

If you could have any powers, what would they be?

I would love to be able to teleport, I have such a busy schedule

and not a lot of down time, so if I could teleport I’d save a

lot of time on travel and actually be able to take vacations on

the weekends!

How would you describe your fashion style?

Honestly, it varies so much depending on my mood. Some

days I'm a lot sportier, some days I'm girly and preppy, and

other days I’m in chill street style clothes. Fashion is a big part

of self expression to me so I’m always exploring new looks.

What would you say is your biggest goal in life?

I guess I would say to continue working on great projects, and

sign on to projects that I am excited about and can really get

behind. That and just to be happy and healthy.

Could you share with me a favorite memory on set (any

set) ?

One of my favorite on set memories was shooting the finale

song/dance on Descendants 3. It’s allegedly the last film in the

franchise (who ever really knows) and I’ve known these people

for over 5 years now, and getting to perform with that family

and celebrate what we've created over the past half a decade

was really special.

Picture yourself 10 years from now: what do you see?

I see someone who has crossed off a lot of her goals but is

still working very hard to cross off more. I definitely am a hard

worker and will continue to be, and I hope that 10 years from

now I am happy with not only my professional life but my personal

life as well.

I guess the main difference would be pace. With feature films

you really get to take your time and specifically with Descendants,

we had a lot of rehearsal time to nail our big song and

dance numbers. You shoot a LOT less pages in a day with

films. With TV the pace is insanely quick, sometimes you don't

get as much time as you want, and sometimes we shoot up to

Madame X

by Sam Spotswood

One of the biggest influences in pop music history has released

her 14th studio album, Madame X. This album, perhaps Madonna’s

best work, reflects her artistic expertise while also including

brand new influences based on her experience living in Portugal

that will satisfy fans old and new alike. Because the album

showcases Madonna’s mysterious, cosmopolitan alter ego, the

namesake of the album, the work as a whole experiments with

new sounds and provocative topics, continuing Madonna’s legacy

of pushing the envelope through her music.

The opening track “Medellin” featuring Maluma sets the precedent

for the album, establishing steamy lyrics alongside worldly

themes and sonic patterns, reflecting the experimental nature

of the album. Even so, this song eases the audience into the

mold breaking to come. While the next track, “Dark Ballet” at

first doesn't seem like a natural progression from “Medellin,” its

attempt to break traditional song structures makes it the perfect

fit. The mechanized sounding

waltz that sits in the center of

the song is reminiscent of similar

innovative efforts by Queen

with classic songs like “Millionaire

Waltz” from 1976’s A Day

at the Races.

The third track, “God Control,”

follows a similar trajectory as

“Dark Ballet” with its rejection

of typical song structures. The

harmonizing chorus at minute

one especially stands out, contrasting

with the more rap-like

introduction to the song; the

chorus leads into an electronic

glam-pop sequence seemingly

inspired by the instrumentation

and electronic beats of

RuPaul’s “Supermodel (You

Better Work)” before returning

to the harmonizing chorus

to close out the song. The influences

heard in this track do

not translate or flow to the next

track, “Future” featuring Quavo,

but instead continues the

theme of diverse musical patterns. “Future” implements beachy

reggae technical elements, including trumpets, steel drums, and

reggae-inspired guitar chords. Quavo’s feature initially may seem

like an attempt to reach “kids these days,” but proves otherwise,

as his verse seamlessly fits into Madonna’s creation.

After “Future,” Madame X reaches a turning point, signalling

the shift to radical political commentary the rest of the album

adopts. The next track continues to break the cohesiveness

of the album, drawing upon more house, EDM, and (surprisingly

enough) folk music in “Batuka” (of Orquesta Batukadeiras of

Lisbon, Portugal). Madonna’s synthesized vocals on this track

sonically contrast with the voices of the Orquesta Batukadeiras

singing in Portuguese, producing an intentional dichotomy used

to demonstrate the adversity felt by women around the world,

including the women in the Orquesta.

International influences and political commentary continue with

“Killers Who Are Partying,” as demonstrated with the sultry Spanish

guitar and the chorus is sung in Portuguese. This song is the

most poignant one on the album, speaking to various political

and human rights concerns present in the world today, including

the oppression of members of the LGBTQ community, women,

exploited children, Muslims, and more. Her radical statement

of allyship are syntactically simplistic, yet tackle complex issues

through a complex musical production. This interplay most firmly

establishes the mission of the album.

“Killers Who Are Partying,” while the most outwardly radical on

the album, is the most characteristic song of the album--the

strong guitar on the track bleeds into “Crave” featuring Swae

Lee; the Portuguese chorus translates to the more traditionally

Madonna-esque track “Crazy” and the fully Portuguese song

“Faz Gostoso” featuring Brazilian artist Anitta; and the Latin influences

are heard in her second

song featuring Maluma,

“Bitch I’m Loca” (which also

seems to implement Bollywood

influences). The worldliness of

the musical composition, while

making the album sound interesting,

takes a back seat in “Killers

Who Are Partying,” as well

as the final song of the album “I

Rise,” which features snippets

from activist Emma Gonzalaz’s

2018 “We Call BS” speech. Incorporating

the groundbreaking

words of a politically active

youth captures the essence of

Madame X’s lyrical composition;

Madonna’s advocacy for

social change in tandem with

her worldly instrumentation and

production firmly establishes

Madonna’s call for a collective

movement towards progressivism

and equality for the global

population.

Overall, Madame X is an experience--one

that takes the listener

for a ride through a dark world in dire need of change with

Madonna as our guide. Madonna’s reputation as a trendsetter

and mold breaker continues with this album, possibly even more

so than her other works. While verses seem to include the popular

meters dominating the radio airwaves at the moment, the

timbral effects produced by the rich instrumentation influenced

by a variety of international genres, computer-manipulated vocals,

and radical lyricism reinvigorates the current dry spell pop

music is experiencing. Furthermore, the sonic experimentation

awakens the listener, allowing Madonna to spread her political

activism in the most effective manner possible. With Madame

X, Madonna brings her artistry to a younger audience (as well as

her older fans) in a way that is receptive to their inclusive postmodern

sensibilities, demonstrating yet again to the world that

she is the Queen of Pop.

All In the Family:

JAGMAC's Pop Power

by Sam Spotswood

Following in the footsteps of sibling groups like the Jackson 5 and the Jonas Brothers,

Baltimore natives Jared, Alyssa, Gabriel, Manjo, Angelique, and CJ Patalinghug

(collectively known as JAGMAC)

have made an impressive mark on the pop world.

From their first single in 2015 to their UK tour with Little Mix to their recent acquisition

of the title of Radio Disney’s “Next Big Thing,”

Jagmac’s wholesome, dance worthy pop discography has earned them recognition

from elite members of the music industry. The group continues to progress

and gain more success, as seen with their latest hit “Like a Band.” BELLOmag got to talk to JAGMAC and ask

them about their relationship as siblings, their musical influences, songwriting process, and more!

As a group of siblings, how do you think being in a band together

has changed your relationship?

Our relationship has changed in the best way possible! We have

become closer as siblings and as band members. We’re not

perfect, and we do have our moments, but we somehow make it

work.

How do you think being siblings influences your creative

process and your group collaboration? Who would you say

contributes the most/who is the laziest (lol)?

Well, we all grew up listening to the same type of music early on,

so we all have a similar taste in music. Also, being siblings helps

because we know each other’s strengths and weaknesses.

Jared: What’s it like being the youngest? Does the order

from oldest to youngest impact how the band works?

Being the youngest has its perks and downfalls for sure, but I

love being the youngest because I get all the attention! LOL.

Each family dynamic is different, but we make sure to respect

each other as siblings and artists, no matter the age.

What is your songwriting process like?

Our songwriting process varies depending on which producer

we’re working with, but it usually consists of us sitting around

the piano, coming up with different melodies. Then from there,

different words will flow and then a concept will eventually develop.

What is your favorite JAGMAC song and why?

CJ - “No Plans” is my favorite song because it’s the most fun to

perform!

Alyssa - “Like Me” would be my favorite because the lyrics are

so relatable and it’s also a very fun song to perform.

Manjo - “No Plans” is my favorite because there’s a lot of

B-More club influence in the production.

Gabriel - “Right Back With You” is my favorite song because it’s

one that will never get too old to perform!

Angelique - “Be Honest” would have to be my favorite because

the lyrics are everything that we stand for and it’s like our anthem

song!

Jared - “Like Ooh” is my favorite because it’s super fun song to

dance to!

How do each of you add your individuality to each song/performance?

We all add our individuality just by being ourselves when we

perform! It’s so important to have our moment to express ourselves

creatively so that the audience can see the flavor that

each member has!

What was it like touring with Little Mix?

Touring with Little Mix was a dream come true! They’re such

sweet girls and we had such a blast being on tour with them!

Playing in different cities every night with thousands of people

was an experience we’ll never forget!

What is your favorite part of tour?

Favorite part of tour would be hearing the fans sing our songs

back to us!

You’re from Baltimore. What was it like getting to perform in

your hometown?

Our first headlining show in Baltimore was totally epic! So many

people came out, not only our friends/family, but other people

we had never seen before!

As Filipino artists, what do you think about the importance

of Asian-American representation in Hollywood and the music

industry?

It’s so important because everyone should be proud of where

they come from! To be able to connect with your roots is such

an amazing thing that shouldn’t ever be hidden or ashamed of.

We also look up to some Filipino artists like Bruno Mars, the

Black Eyed Peas and even artists like Prince and H.E.R. who are

also half Filipino like us!

What are some of your hobbies outside of music?

Aside from music, we like sports, teaching Martial Arts and

hanging out with friends and family.

Manjo, I heard you’re the cook in the group. What are some

of your favorite things to cook?

“My favorite thing to cook at the moment is Butter Chicken.”

Who is one artist each of you would like to collaborate with?

Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Bruno Mars, Thomas

Rhett, Beyonce, and Shawn Mendes.

Who are some of your musical influences?

The Jackson 5, Black Eyed Peas, Backstreet Boys, NSYNC,

Spice Girls

Charles Lott Jr. had not made any specific plans for his future but it seems

that the universe already had. After only a couple of auditions,

Charles landed his comic relief role as Ron "Chubbs" Hendricks in an

upcoming film featuring Ben Affleck. Ironically, the film is about basketball and

Charles had never been a good ball player.

That did not stop him and his will and determination to do right by the movie is

strongly felt. Charles Lott is just beginning his career in the film industry

We know you are performing in an upcoming film with an

interesting cast: tell me more about your role in it and what

the film is about.

My character name is Ron “Chubbs” Hendricks! I am the Comic

Relief in such a Heartsore film. It’s about a comeback story,

a man who was a promising basketball star who had a Transient

career due to alcoholism; he loses so much and ends up

regrouping and gaining it back through the youth of a basketball

team. He ends up growing to love them after an Augean

grueling path.

The story line revolves around basketball. Was that a sport

you used to play ? If not, what are some obstacles you encountered

in preparing for the film?

I did not play basketball growing

up. I sucked. You’d think that I

would’ve gotten better after months

of hard vigorous training! It’s honestly

sad when I had to workout

in front of the athletic coordinator

for the movie I went to the 99

cent store and bought an ugly cast

and taped it around my hand so if

I sucked (which I did) I would have

an excuse and it worked!! It was

just hard going to practice seeing

everyone better than me but I

worked hard in trying to look like I

knew what I was doing

I heard you met with some great

cast members. As you are at the

start of your career, how was it

playing in a film alongside Ben

Affleck?

He is the most amazing, nicest,

most genuine person I have ever

met, and I’m not just saying that I

actually mean it I love that man to

death. He “adopted” me. I’m his

son now: ask him he’ll tell you he

has given me so much game to this

business and I feel so special to

even be in his inner circle and hang

out with him, we’re really close. I

was talking to him yesterday and

I’m still in ahhhh. I hope to work

with him again he’s really like a father figure.

Was there a specific person or event that inspired you to

become an actor?

Growing up I loved Will smith and Leonardo DiCaprio--I idolized

them. I watched them religiously as they were my favorite

actors. I loved Denzel as well; those men have such have such

a command onscreen that forces you to keep your eyes on

them. Obviously, there are tons of people I can name but those

are my favorites growing up!

Tell me more about yourself. What are some of your favorite

hobbies?

Man I am a simple guy I love to listen to music, I loveeeeee

watching movies and reading screenplays!! hang out with

friends, workout, I am a video game addict and love to party! I

just can’t be bored!!!!

What are some key lessons you have learned over the last

year?

I use to hear that “patience is a virtue” and it sound like this

stupid cliche saying that keeps people’s hopes alive but it’s

actually true especially with the cinema industry. It’s hard to

become a movie star but if you have a dream and really believe

in it and have patience it will come: every no is one step closer

to a yes! Even I used to get down after I didn’t book roles that I

really wanted but now I just brush it off and move on. Some of

the roles I auditioned for wasn’t even close as big as the movie

I did now, I did a few tv show auditions and I thought that it was

the end of the world and BOOM a movie came up. Another thing

I learned is always stay prepared and don’t be afraid to take

risks it’s always better to be prepared and not have the opportunity

then to have the opportunity

and not be prepared I always have

the five P’s proper preparation prevents

poor performance. Never

be afraid to take risks!! If you take

them and it doesn’t work out so

be it! You only miss the shots you

don’t take you never know what

might happen ALWAYS TAKE THE

RISK!! Especially if it’s something

you believe in.

If you could pick any role to play

in the future, what would it be?

What kind of movie would you

like to be in?

I just want to show my versatility

in roles and wanting to show how

ambidextrous I am. I feel confident

enough that I can play multiple

genres and characters! But if I

had to narrow it down, at the moment

I want to do something like

Kingsman Secret Service it seems

like something cool to show and

it looked a lot of fun to be a secret

agent would also wolf of Wall

Street, 21 jump street, that Godzilla

movie that came out, comedies,

but I also loved the role in I am legend

I can go on good fellas, Phillip

Seymour Hoffman in the master,

raging bull, Lawrence of Arabia,

rain man, there will be blood,Django

Moonlight, When they See us, the list can go on!!

Growing up, had you ever imagined you would become an

actor? If not, what did you dream of becoming?

It sucks to say I didn’t, I played football I always wanted to be

a professional athlete if that didn’t work I was going to become

a business owner. I wanted to own my own nightclub like my

father did. I was so close, we found the building, had the start

up money and everything but I booked the movie!! but growing

up people always told me I should become an actor. I’ve always

had comparisons throughout my career that I will be the

next will smith from casting directors and other people I mean

who wouldn’t have want have a career like his, his career is a

template for a lot of people. so it was definitely something I

had in the back of my mind and I always loved movies and cinematography

it would’ve happened regardless this was meant

to happen I feel. would go to the church choir while they were

singing and conduct at 2 years old my mom still has the video

ahaha!! I’ve always been a character.

DESTINATION

Palm Springs

3

by Stéphane Marquet

A relaxing Oasis just two hours away from

Los Angeles, Palm Springs has been my favorite

place for a weekend or even a week

long escape under the Desert sun. There are

some iconic hotels that will immerse you into

the resort lifestyle such as The Parker but my

ideal setting is a mid century house with a private

pool overlooking the majestic mountain

and the endless sea of palm trees (that will

glitter like diamonds during the golden hour).

Get yourself some fresh fruits, sorbet, a good

book and your favorite summer drink (mine

is a splash of Grenadine On iced Water) and

you'll be set for a hot summer day. Shade,

you do need shade! Ideally natural shade

from mature trees that will keep you cool. The

only real exercise will be going in and out of

the pool for the rest of the day. This is the

perfect combo for a dreamy vacation. All I

usually do is leave the house to eat. Shaded

breakfast at Norma's patio at The Parker (1),

Lunch at LULU's Café, Lobster Rolls is my to

go (2). On your drive back home make sure to

cruise around Vista La Palmas neighborhood

to enjoy some fine Mid Century architecture

(3). However, if that is where you rental is then

that would make you the luckiest individual in

town. Once the sun dives behind the mountain,

it's already time to get ready for dinner

under the stars at Birba's (4). The food is

just incredible and not overpriced; my suggestion:

try their roasted Cauliflower, Melon,

Prosciutto, and White Pizza ... I mean everything

we had there was delicious. After dark

and before going back for a night dive in your

pool, take a quick detour to The Parker and

order the Smore's that you will enjoy making

around their fire pit.

Diversity is one of the

greatest forces of love.

We are all born open minded

and when a child is

grow more accepting.

Representation in my line of

work is important.

Representation in positions

When people see more than

one color, both where they

find entertainment and in

their lives,

their way of thinking and

views towards others comes

from a different place.
