Miranda Cosgrove is best known for her charming turn as the internet-savvy Carly Shay on the hit Nickelodeon show “iCarly.” But she’s quickly becoming equally well known for her music, which continues to grow and mature just as she does. And as she takes that journey, she’s going to be letting us into her life all this September with blog posts, videos, photos and more on MTV’s Posted.
Miranda Cosgrove saw her first musical notoriety with the recording of “iCarly” ’s infectious theme song (I dare you to hear that and not hum along). But her more recent material, especially her 2010 album, Sparks Fly, isn’t just kid stuff; it’s rich, catchy and emotional pop-rock.
In the behind-the-scenes videos below, we catch up with Miranda Cosgrove in the studio, working on her undeniable single “Kissin’ U.” The track was cowritten by Miranda and hitmaking superpowers Dr. Luke (Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream,” Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone”) and Cosgrove had to check her fandom at the door, finding herself working with the writer of some of her favorite songs. You’ll also see Miranda Cosgrove shoot her “Kissin’ U” video in Malibu with director Alan Ferguson.
“Kissin’ U,” which is about letting down your guard with someone you’ve fallen for, is, according to Cosgrove, about someone real. But despite that, Cosgrove seems to be having a blast in the studio and on her video set.
Check out Miranda Cosgrove’s behind-the-scenes MTV Posted videos and her “Kissin’ U” video below. And stay tuned for more Miranda updates all month long!
