Calum Hood is a 21-year-old from Australia who is most famous for being the bassist and a singer of the band 5 Seconds of Summer.
How Calum Hood Got Famous
Calum was born in Sydney, Australia on January 25th, 1996 to parents Joy and David Hood. He grew up loving both salsa dancing and football, which are fairly opposite interests. Calum Hood actually played football throughout school and was interested in becoming a famous sports player before giving up his normal life and dreams to be a bassist, vocalist, and songwriter in the band 5 Seconds of Summer.
Calum Hood’s Music Career
In 2011, Calum joined future bandmembers Luke and Michael and posting short videos of themselves singing popular song covers on YouTube using Luke Hemmings channel. The three of them had met at Norwest Christian College. Some of their videos went viral, and they obtained a fourth member, a drummer named Ashton Irwin before they ended up signing a deal with Sony and recording their first album.
Calum Hood became the bassist, songwriter, and one of the vocalists for Five Seconds of Summer. The teen was just 15 at the time, and he and the rest of the band were an instant success among the teenage girls of the world. Their first release charted in their home country of Australia despite not getting any promotion besides that that they did on their own on social media. Calum and the band went on to release two more albums, and they started their own record label. 5SoS are said to be currently working on another studio album as of October 2017. In the meantime, they’ve gone on many sold-out world tours.
Calum Hood’s Controversies
In the winter of 2015, Calum Hood and his bandmates Michael Clifford, Aston Irwin, and Luke Hemmings, got themselves in trouble with their fans when they did an interview with popular music magazine Rolling Stone. Calum, in particular, said that he wasn’t used to getting attention from girls, so he really enjoyed it when they threw themselves all over him on tour. While he didn’t get as explicit as his bandmate Luke did about sleeping with his fans, he did admit that he got “a bit reckless.” The interview could’ve been an attempt to appeal to a new demographic of male listeners, but it did a lot to upset their teenage girl fans. Not only was the interview upsetting, but Five Seconds of Summer was naked for the cover photo. This seemed to be mocking a scandal surrounding Calum Hood and leaked nude photographs.
Calum Hood’s Romantic Life
While Calum has remained fairly private about his personal life, we still have a pretty good idea about who he has dated since he first entered into fame at the age of fifteen. In 2014, he dated Maddy Harris, a famous YouTuber, and Instagram star. The two only lasted together for three months, but she still posts wistful, nostalgic pictures of the two of them on her social media pages. He was rumored to have dated the reality star Kendall Jenner, but that proved to be false. In 2015, Calum Hood and Jennifer Phipps were said to be an item. Jenn is also from Australia, but their young love, if it existed, also did not last long. In 2016, he was rumored to be dating a drummer from one of the bands that were signed to his label, Hi or Hey Records. Nia Lovelis from Hey Violet was photographed with Calum, cuddling up to each other in NYC. It seems like he is currently single.
