Tiffany Haddish will soon be gaming up for a physical challenge.
The “Night School” actress, in addition to Shaun White and Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, will be featured in upcoming episodes of Nickelodeon’s “Double Dare,” Page Six can exclusively reveal.
Tied to the 2019 Kids’ Choice Awards, “Double Dare” will have themed episodes airing from March 11 through the March 14, which will include Wentz, whose band is nominated for Favorite Music Group, and actor Joel Courtney, star of Favorite Movie nominee “The Kissing Booth.”
Today, you can’t necessarily think, “Rock music has to be this and it can’t be that.” We’re challenging the notion of what rock music can be. Listening to a playlist might mean going from a Beatles song into Twenty One Pilots into Lil Yachty. Kids are going to arenas to see Imagine Dragons and to hear those big songs. But they’re also checking out Bleachers and Jack Antonoff; he’s one of the biggest pop producers — one who clearly approaches songs as a kid in his bedroom listening to punk rock.
Not necessarily that we weren’t far along before – the songs just weren’t the right songs. We totally altered the course, which I think was important.
“I’d say we’re 60 or 70 per cent done with the record now,” he revealed.
I think we got ourselves into a strange situation where we put out “Young And Menace” and then we were like, ‘What’s the rest of the body of work?’.
It feels like every once in awhile, you’ve gotta do a hard restart that clears the cache and erases the hard drive. I think that’s what “Young and Menace” was – a big palette cleanse. I think it gave us the space to create something brand new. The world can be a big lonely place, especially for kids who are trying to figure themselves out. I think sometimes we can forget that… that’s who Mania is meant to speak to. That’s who I want to reach. I don’t think that kids should feel like they need to adjust their empathy or selves to the world – I’d rather give them the belief that they can adjust the world to fit their empathy.
