Drake Bell, the former star of the hit Nickelodeon sitcom, Drake & Josh, appears to have changed his name, packed up shop, and moved to Mexico.
I know, I wasn't expecting it either.
Here's the full story...
Drake Bell has been through some changes as of late.The thirty-four-year-old actor has made himself a new life, a new name, and a new career, all in the sunny land of tequila.
Admittedly, none of us saw this one coming.When we first met Drake as, well, Drake, on the set of Drake & Josh, none of us quite had a life as a Mexican pop star envisioned for him.
But hey, life works in mysterious ways, doesn't it?Alongside his co-star, Josh Peck, Drake appeared in every episode across the show's 4 seasons, and each and every one was a roaring success.
But, just like his on-screen character...Drake is also a musician and managed to release his first 2 albums, Telegraph and It's Only Time while filming the show.
His third album, Ready Set Go! arrived in 2014...And, in February this year, he released The Lost Album, which included songs from a missing hard drive that were originally supposed to be a follow-up to his 2006 album.
He has accumulated a modest fanbase over the years...
But, evidently, his fan base is stronger in some places than it is in others...
And, to make things even more peculiar...
He even started posting videos where he spoke in fluent Spanish...
The musician tweeted this...
Which, once translated into English, explains that his social networks would only be in Spanish, adding "no more English."
