Aly & AJ, known briefly as 78violet (pronounced: seventy-eight violet), are an American pop rock duo that consists of sisters Alyson and Amanda Michalka. They signed a recording contract with Hollywood Records in 2004. Their debut album, Into the Rush, debuted at number 36 on the US Billboard 200, and was later certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). It has sold 839,000 copies domestically and one million copies worldwide.

Aly & AJ for Imagista
We got many photos from the new incredible photoshoot of Aly & AJ Michalka for the portal Imagista. Amanda and Alyson look just incredible. We have added 22 UHQ original photos to the phogallery. And you can also check out the interview of Amanda for Imagista by clicking here. And if you have not noticed, we set up a new layout on the whole website featured the photos from the photoshoot for “Schon Magazine“.
AJ: We grew up in Southern California, we were born and raised in LA for most of our lives. We did spend a chunk of our childhood in Seattle Washington for seven years as kids. My family wanted to be closer to the rest of our family but due to our fathers business, which was located in LA, we ended up back in California.
Imagista: Did you start performing at the same time?
Aly & AJ: Yeah! AJ: I think Aly being the older sister really inspired me because as the younger sister I would want to do what she was doing. It became a clear passion for both of us at a young age and we knew this is what we wanted to do but we didn’t know we would be doing it as a profession.
Imagista: You guys have had so much success as together and also individually, how does that work? How do you balance your individual careers and your duo?
Aly: It can be. A lot of the time we need to talk about it together and decide what we can do and what we can’t do. For us, we manage it, because we are really close and we feel like we could make those tough decisions together. When Aj is filming a TV show I am at the mercy of her when it comes to music but that’s okay because I know that and we work around it.
Imagista: How many cities are you going to?
Aly: We will play a total of thirty-eight shows.
AJ: We added on some international dates in July. So for the first time, we are going to be performing in London, Manchester, Paris, and a couple of other spots. It is really the next big step in our career, we have performed around the states but to take our show international is really a new accomplishment.
Imagista: It seems like you guys really have a special bond, your parents must be so proud. Have they always supported these dreams?
Aly: They have, they have been super supportive since the very beginning. I think they knew that it was something Aj and I wanted to do so deeply. We were so happy when we were taking music classes or doing theater, I think seeing how much joy it brings us has brought a lot of joy to them. They still act very concerned and they totally kick into parent mode. When we left for the tour we both got a bunch of texts and calls from both our mom and dad telling us to be safe and to stay focused. It was very sweet, we will always be their babies.
AJ: We are traveling the world together and it is scary for them but they are so supportive, we are very lucky.
Imagista: Is it just you two or do you have any other siblings?
Aj: It’s just us two!
Imagista: Can each of you tell me something about your sister that we can’t find about you on google?
Aly: AJ is obsessed with getting a cat and naming it Tod. She has a special connection with a cat that was at our vet and his name was Tod. I’m highly allergic to cats so I don’t know how that’s going to work.
AJ: Yes! That is true, I am going to need to get a hypoallergenic cat so that he could be around Aly. Aly has this dog, with her husband, he is a rescue and no one knows that she actually treats him like her son. She calls him her son, it’s like she birthed him I have never seen anything like it.

Noelle Stevenson didn’t grow up watching She–Ra: Princess of Power, but she wishes she had. The original She–Ra — which followed Princess Adora, the twin sister of Prince Adam (a.k.a. He-Man) — debuted in 1985, more than six years before Stevenson was born. But now she’s co-executive producer (alongside Chuck Austen) on a reboot, She–Ra and the Princesses of Power, from DreamWorks Animation Television that will debut on Netflix later this year.

Before there were parenting blogs, trophies for showing up, and peanut allergies, there was a simpler time called the '80s. For geeky 11-year old Adam these were his wonder years and he faced them armed with a video camera to capture all the crazy...
