After combining forces with rap legend Snoop Dogg back in 2011 to create their hit single 'Boyfriend', pop heartthrobs Big Time Rush are back in the studio working on a new hip-hop collaboration.

Big Time Rush
Big Time Rush have topped a new magazine poll to find the best boy band in the world.

The act, which fronts its own Nickelodeon TV show, picked up the bulk of the 800,000 votes cast in Parade's first boy band survey, edging out Britain's One Direction for the title - and the cover of the latest issue of the publication.

Singer Kendall Schmidt believes the secret to the band's success is in the way he and his pals treat their fans.

He explains, "How many artists have you seen just walk away and act like it's not important?"

Bandmate James Maslow adds, "(Other acts) act like they're bette...

Big Time Rush's James Maslow Talks Big Summer Plans

April 18th, 2012 5:56am EDT
James Maslow
I'll admit it: when I hear the phrase "boy band," I'm one of those people who cringes. But I recently chatted with Big Time Rush member James Maslow, and he changed my mind a little bit.

BTR (consisting of Maslow, Kendall Schmidt, Carlos Pena, Jr. and Logan Henderson) is a boy band that was born out of the Nickelodeon TV series of the same name. In concept, their origin is reminiscent of The Monkees. Since 2009, the foursome have been acting in the half-hour musical/comedy series as well as releasing two albums. They'll be touring across the country this summer.

The group's origins migh...
