Photographed by Alvin Nguyen, Jesse McCartney posed for the camera on a mountain for Flaunt Magazine and talked with them about his career, the Backstreet Boys, and much more!
Jesse discussed what motivated him to go down the path he’s on, giving all credit to his parents saying, “My Mom and Dad were both very musically and theatrically inclined and from the time I was a young child they played me every old show tune, movie, song and TV show that I needed to know.”
He also talked about how long it typically takes to write a record, and for him, it depends: “I’ve written songs in a couple hours and I’ve had songs take two months toget right. I wouldn’t say it’s an easy process, necessarily, but it certainly can be.”

Jesse recently spoke to EW about the Spring finale of Young & Hungry (watch preview here) and how he’s very different from his tech-savvy character. Plus, he explains what it takes to get that squeaky voice for the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise. Read a piece from the interview below!
What can you tell us about the mid-season finale?
There’s a big reveal, and I think there’s an ongoing love triangle that just comes to a head. The audience is kind of in the know about stuff that Cooper’s not in the know about, and they’re gonna see Cooper’s reaction to this whole love triangle. And there’s a big dramatic scene at the end.
In the Chernobyl Diaries, you and Jonathan Sadowski played brothers, and now you’re competing for the same woman.
We got a chance to work in Budapest together and in Serbia for two months, and we became really good buddies. Incidentally, he became my neighbor. He lives right down the street from me. We literally carpool to work.
The great thing about this show is that it’s a family show, but also a grown-up show.
It’s easy to pass judgment on the network [ABC Family] because it has “family” in the title, but I think they’ve done a relatively good job of pushing the envelope a little bit, and trying to tackle real life topics for people in their later teen years and early college years. I realized that when I was shooting Greek a few years back. It wasn’t exactly what you would think of when you think of a family show.
