Disney’s Camp Rock 2 star, Matthew “MDot” Finley, was in a serious motorcycle accident in Malibu, CA and has just been released from the hospital. Last Thursday, Mdot’s Ducati bike skidded off a 100-foot cliff on Mullholland Drive when he lost control on a turn. He suffered compound fractures and injuries to his face and head and shattered his shin bone. According to TMZ, Mdot “has already undergone several surgeries to repair damage to his leg … and will require more surgery in the near future.”
Mdot’s rep told EOnline.com today, “He (Mdot) wants to get back in the studio with Nick Jonas and his producer Dapo … who are helping him create R&B and pop music without a parental warning sticker.”
Dapo tweeted earlier today:
Mdot can be seen performing the song, “Fire!” in the Disney cable tv smash, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam. (“Fire” was written by Dapo & Lyrica Anderson and produced by Dapo)
Dapo took a break from the studio this afternoon to attend the “2010 Teen Choice Awards Talent Swag Social” at the London West Hollywood (Hosted by California Queen and benefiting the “Children of the Night” charity)
Jennifer Tapiero (StarCam Host) chatted with Dapo about what it’s like working with Demi Lovato (and about Demi’s “new sound”), his song with Matthew “Mdot” Finley “Fire” in Camp Rock 2, what it’s like working with the hottest pop star in the world, Justin Bieber (“Bigger” & “Overboard”), how cool is Jesse McCartney and his new hot dance song, “Up”, on the Step Up 3D soundtrack & in the movie (Step Up 3D hits theaters today!), and what it’s like to write with American Idol sweetheart, David Archuleta. We’ll post the interview as soon as it becomes available!
Miss California Teen USA (Emma Baker) tried out her interview chops with Dapo and they realized they have “Nigeria” in common when she heard he was from Nigeria, she revealed that her father is from Nigeria! It’s an interesting story and you’ll have to wait until the interview is released! (We’ll post a link!) Oh, and this interview was shot in 3D!! Perfect timing since today Step Up 3D hits theaters nation-wide!!
