This ones for all your closet tweens, like us.

Drake Bell wants to be the next Zac Efron!

The Nickelodeon star is trying to his hand at "rocker." Bell got his groove on at his tour stop at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel.

That's a big venue!

Doesn't he look dapper?

Drakey can ring our bell anytime! (He's 21, bitches.)

    I don't know who this dude is, but I tend to think his style is Beatle-ish. Is that the same kind of guitar Paul McCartney used?

    i just saw drake in concert on tuesday, he really is amazing. he has such great style. i love how his music is different than other people his age who release music. it has such a great beatles/jazzy vibe to it. i think he is going to do great things! not too mention he is way cute! :)

    107

    drake is way hotter and can actually sing and is talented.
    Zac doesn't even sing in high school musical. he's a big fakey.

    I'm the mother of 2 in my mid thirties—and I watch Drake and Josh religiously with my kids. I absolutely love Drake Bell. He has maturity beyond his years and is a very talented actor and singer. Glad your finally give him some attention!

    109

    OMG…lol..well, drake has always been in the music business. He sings the theme song to his show "drake nd Josh", and he had an album out, a while ago…i think he's kinda hot..

    WHO THE F IS ZAC EFRON?????

  13. Mom to tweens says – reply to this


    113

    he's been singing for a while now - and I understand from my daughters that Zac Efron didn't sing his own songs in High School Musical…

  14. Tansan says – reply to this


    114

    Perez, maybe you don't watch his show… like others before me had said, he is in showbiz long before that Zac guy. I guess he's talented too… he plays the guitar (I reckon he does because I saw some episodes of Drake and Josh) and he has a nice voice actually.

  15. Deuce says – reply to this


    115

    Well its about damn time we start talking about Drake Bell…. He's so damn cute!! If I could pick a younger man, this one would be it!!!

  16. Madison says – reply to this


    116

    Drake came way before Zac. I love 'em both both but common the facts are the facts. Drake just wasn't in the tabloids all the time like Zac. Their both Disney boys but I've loved Drake for way longer. And i like his music to. It has a different tone to it that not much music does anymore. Now Perez i would greatly appreciate it if you did have more on Drake he isn't on your site or any other gossip site very often and i love to hear about him. *kiss kiss*

  17. drakefan says – reply to this


    117

    I personally love drake! And like most people have said he's been on television for sooo long. i remember him way back from the amanda show. hes always been funny. i was sooo excited that he got his own show with josh. I watched the movie last night and lvoed it! especially the scene at the end when they flashed back to when they were younger and faught over the shrimp. HE'S great!

    this is my first time commenting by the way..IM A FAN PEREZ!!
    can you please post more zac efron and vanessa hudgens please?!

  18. ron says – reply to this


    118

    catchup perez, he's had a band for YEARS.. he's not newly trying his hand at anything.

  19. mkb says – reply to this


    119

    Drake can indeed ring, and rock, btw! He released an indie album in '05 called "Telegraph" that's amazing, and his newest, "It's Only Time" is more Beatles-esque than McCartney's new stuff. Just in case anyone wants to further, um, explore Mr. Bell's talents! Yum! (Zac Efron is a little too underaged for my taste, and doesn't have an album - or a guitar, as far as I know. ;P Closet tween or not, boys with guitar do it for me every time!)

  20. Jezebel says – reply to this


    120

    Drake is a talented musician and has been putting his music out there way before Zac discovered make-up.

    Saw Drake @ PNC, he was great and so was Corbin Bleu, too bad AJ & Aly sucked big time - half the audience left on their 4th song.

  21. kate says – reply to this


    121

    he's way hotter than zac, way MORE TALENTED, and a LOT LESS GAY!!!!!!!!!

  22. Jennifer says – reply to this


    122

    I love Drake and Josh and his music is just a bonus… he can really sing!

  23. korn says – reply to this


    123

    i watched the drake and josh movie last night with my son (im 33 hes 7) and we love drake!!!! Way better than zac

  24. emily says – reply to this


    124

    Drake is WAY more talented and has been singing alot longer then Zac. I dont see the reason to compare them cause the shows, and movies that htere in are totally different. Same goes with their music, Drake DOES write his own lyrics. He has 2 albums out, Telegrah and Its Only Time. Telegraph which was released Sept 2005. Hes been in the business alot longer then Zac, Drake is NOT gay, hes dating Melissa Lingerfelt, shes runner up miss Teen USA, and he was dating Stevie Ryan.
    Before any of you post, get your facts straight.

    125

    Damn he looks soo good. yummy! but he doesnt even come close to Stephen Colletti, now stephen is a whole other story :)

    way to shout out Holmdel. although i wish it was for a better reason

  28. Kelly says – reply to this


    128

    Drake has def been around ALOT longer than Zac Efron! He used to be on the Amanda Show when he was like 12. Roger Daultry from the Who taught him how to play the guitar when he was 13 or something on a set of a movie and it's been his passion ever since.

  29. B says – reply to this


    129

    perez, do your research first. drake has been singing way before his show even started and he has been famous longer than zac.

  35. Me says – reply to this


    135

    Perez, this guy actually started music way before Zac Efron was even famous.
    But, that doesent mean i like him. I've never liked him. Even though i dont know him personally, something about him just bugs the fuck out of me. Maybe it's the poser thing, yeah.. i think that's it. He's a POSER.

  36. f u says – reply to this


    136

    #139, if you're 22, that's really suprising. I agree with the person that said you dont sound like a day over 12.
    And umm, have you ever heard of fake myspace?

  37. cn1197 says – reply to this


    137

  39. White Diamond says – reply to this


    139

    Hasn't he been singing this whole time? isn't that what he's famous for OTHER than acting as Drake on Drake and Josh??

  40. Sarah says – reply to this


    140

    He is a really cool kid. I got to meet him in Nashville. he took pictures and signed autographs. He was so cool. He is a really good singer and musician. he plays guitar and piano.

  41. katie21500 says – reply to this


    141

    what the hell are you talking about??? so i sound like i'm 12 because i said drake is a lame ass. i'm more grown up then you'll ever be you dumb shit. so i'm not grown up because i cuss a lot. GET OVER YOURSELF. wow!!!!!! and what is a fake myspace??? what are you talking about??? are you insinuating that isn't me??? get a clue!!!!! educate yourself!!!!!!!

  42. Zzzzzz says – reply to this


    142

    Katie, no one cares about your delusional rantings. Now take your meds like a good girl and run along. You're boring.

  43. mrs.robinson says – reply to this


    143

    I have a 6 year old and I am subjected to every episode of Drake and Josh… and Drake is friggin hot, ok?

  44. Nell says – reply to this


    144

    What a charming personality you have Katie. But you say that Drake is the one who sucks. Riiiight - lol! You really do have issues, don't you. Do us all a favor and seek professional help. And you didn't go to the same high school as him so stop lying.

  45. Lozske says – reply to this


    145

    My gosh whats with the Hitler styled hair do???
    Hmmmm>????

  46. Jordan says – reply to this


    146

    he is a total snobbb, fyi. He was completely not interested in the audience at his show at Mohegan Sun the other night.

  47. katie21500 says – reply to this


    147

    hahahaha….why would i lie about something like that. i've never posted a comment on perez ever and i read it like every day. i posted a comment on this because i actually related with it. and YES i did go to high school with him. it was a performing arts high school in yorba linda, california. we went tuesday, wednesday, and thursday. it was a weird school that was directed by my vocal coach janel. i am a singer too. and obviously i'm not famous but i couldn't care less. thats not what i ever wanted. yes i saw him every week and he was stuck up and lame and the only help i need is to try to forget my memories of this guy cause he was so lame. i'm sorry you are upset because i'm perfect and you'll never get a chance to meet me. but thanks for the sweet comments!!!!!!!!

  48. blah says – reply to this


    148

    Katie, stop trying to cause fights over the internet. It's lame. Really, if you did go to school with Drake thats great. Dont all defensive cause no one cares.
    And maybe, just maybe people think your a 1 year old is you not capitolizing your letters and using out of control punctuation.
    But thats my guessing.
    Oh and what school did you attend with Drake?
    I'm just cusious cause Drake was only in highschool for a short ammont of time.

  50. katie21500 says – reply to this


    150

    Ok. I hope this is better for you. YOU need to learn how to spell and use correct grammar and punctuation. Do you know how to proof read???? Why would you tell someone they have bad punctuation if you didn't even read over your own comment for all of your errors. And yes, I defend myself when people like to talk shit and question me. It was called Oak Charter Academy. Happy??? So I happen to be at home sick tonight. Yes I am bored. But I am not picking fights. People talk shit and I defend myself. Ok???????? Hahaha. I still can't believe you tried to call me out on my grammar. How ignorant you must be.

    he's always been singing. he sings the theme song for his nickelodeon show, and is a musician singer/songwriter on the show.

  52. nuttymeggie says – reply to this


    152

    He's always been a singer. He sang the theme song for his show as well as some songs throughout the series of the show. He also released an album back in 2005 before Zac Efron's fame. I don't think he's trying to be the next Zac at all. He's been doing all this way before Zac!

    153

    drake was already singing before zac efron even became famous from high school musical

    drake bell is better than zac efron by a landslide. drake can sing. zac can't. drake doesn't go to a tanning salon and wear as much makeup as a girl and zac does. the end.
