Charlie Puth Shirtless Photos. There’s a new singer in town. He’s 23 years old. He’s a Jersey boy. He’s got a weird (and kinda cute) eyebrow. And his name is Charlie Puth.
Charlie made it to the big leagues when his musical collaboration with Wiz Khalifa titled “See You Again” was featured on the Furious 7 soundtrack and went on to top the Billboard Hot 100 (for a total of 12 non-consecutive weeks).
Aside from “See You Again”, Charlie’s other Billboard 100 presence includes his first single “Marvin Gaye” (featuring Meghan Trainor) which peaked at #61.
Not a bad accomplishment from a young man from Jersey, huh? How did he do it? It may look like he’s just a lucky guy but he’s been singing and trying for years to gain a share of the limelight. We learn more about Puth’s journey to the top from app.com:
“He’s an overnight success. The thing is, of course, it didn’t happen overnight. Puth went to Rumson-Fair Haven High School, but he didn’t play local clubs or coffeehouses.
“I wasn’t the most popular kid,” Puth said. “They knew me as the weirdo who would go around the hallways making noises and beat-boxing, and just making music. I was kind of in my own little world.”
Puth took his act to the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
“I was a pretty good student and at the same time I was going to New York, taking the Amtrack, waiting outside record executive’s doors, playing them my really bad music,” Puth said. “At the time, I would wait outside people’s doors for like five hours and get no response. It was all worth it because I knew it was going to lead to something good.”
In 2011, Puth’s hustle landed him on the “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
“I put up a YouTube and her wife Portia (de Rossi) showed it to her and they said let’s find him,” Puth said. “They were calling my elementary school, they had a whole team of people who scoured around trying to find information on me and she called me and said, ‘Hey, it’s Ellen’ and I hung up. ‘No, it’s really Ellen’ and I hung up again and then she called back again, ‘No, it’s really Ellen and the whole team and please do not hang up.’“
And the rest, they say, is history.
Charlie Puth Gay or Has Girlfriend? Is he gay? Heh. He is straight. Is he dating anyone at the moment? Is the girl in the pic below his girlfriend? Nope, that’s Meghan Trainor. They just worked together on Charlie’s first single, Marvin Gaye.
Based on their tweets and the pic below, Charlie may have dated or is dating model Pritika Swarup. They sure look together, don’t they?
