It's been 10 years since Aly & AJ last released music under their eponymous name but they're ready for a major comeback!The sister duo shared their new single "Take Me" earlier this summer and are getting ready to debut their EP shoot and caught up with them about everything from inspirations to growing up Disney and social media.“He was like, ‘Please wear a cute outfit because I want to take photos of you.’ I was like, ‘Okay, well, I always wear a cute outfit, but sure, I’ll wear an extra cute outfit even though we’re in the woods,’ ” she says.After an early-morning wake up call – which included an unusual sendoff from her mom and sister A. – a clueless Michalka headed off on her hike with Ringer. which we’ve done a million times so obviously that’s not strange at all,” she says.“He planned that we were going to go on a hike in the morning, which didn’t seem weird at all to me because we do that every time we go to Big Sur,” Michalka, 25, told PEOPLE at Matt Leinart’s 8th annual Celebrity Bowl Charity Event on Thursday in Hollywood.And not even Ringer’s special request for his girlfriend to get dressed up raised any red flags.“The fact that Marti is younger than Julian, but she’s mature for her age and there is that connection with the intelligence level and the intellect, [so it] makes sense for them to actually have a relationship.” The relationship is unlikely to evolve into anything particularly serious — and not just because Harold has a date with “The Secret Circle” next season.(Yes, it looks like we may lose him just as things get interesting.) Julian’s past gets in the way.
They'd never initiate any sort of set time to get to know one another.....hence the creation of "Take Me." JJ: Have you found it hard to balance music and acting? We're ready to focus on music and it deserves as much attention as we can give without ignoring acting obligations altogether. Aly: It's funny because everyone sees us as having grown up on the Channel, even though we were really only there for 4 years.Aly Michalka is engaged to her boyfriend Stephen Ringer, the actress-singer announced on Instagram.The 25-year-old shared a photo of her massive ring on Wednesday with the caption: "So this happened .....7/8." Michalka had teased the engagement on her previous Instagram post while posing with her sister AJ Michalka. #Lookcloser Follow," Michalka wrote, referring to the very noticeable ring on her finger.AJ: It was in a dumpy bowling alley in the middle of nowhere, we were on tour at the time. “Pretty Little Liars,” “Life Unexpected,” “Gossip Girl” — inappropriate student-teacher relationships are all the rage in teen TV these days, and “Hellcats” is about to follow suit.
