For those of you still recovering from this year's Coachella, we only have one thing to say: there's no rest for the weary! That's right, Bamboozle 2012 is happening May 18-20 in the great state of New Jersey! Time to give the east coasters out there a chance to live out their festival dreams.
This year, the lineup for Bamboozle is packed with some of the biggest names in rock and EDM. Acts include Skrillex, Mac Miller, Incubus, Foo Fighters, Blink-182, Bon Jovi, Brand New and more. Here's the full schedule.
While music’s biggest names are known for what they bring to the stage and the stereo, it’s the things they do in between selling out venues and making platinum records that reveal their true character. No, not the mansion parties and golf outings, but rather the endless array of charities that music’s superstars have created and contributed to over the years. No one asked these artists to help anyone, but they’ve decided to put their wealth towards all the right causes.
Culture Club threw its grand reopening party last night, and they certainly did it right! With a Michael Jackson impersonator, non-stop '80s music, and themed drinks like "Vanilla Ice," "Bon Jovi," and "Smurfirita," attendees were cutting a rug like they were the stars of Footloose. The multi-level club featured Saturday Night Fever inspired floors, paintings of yester-year, and plenty of neon colors. With the help of partner Debbie Gibson, VnC Cocktails, and South Beach Smoke, the bash was one of the most colorful (literally and figuratively) so far this year. We even got a surprise live performance from Debbie Gibson of Shake Your Love and Only in my Dreams. Notables in attendance included Kourtney Kardashian, VnC ambassador Scott Disick, Nanette Lepore (who also designed the club's uniforms!), Project Runway’s Joshua McKinley, DJ Kiss, DJ M.O.S, and Mick Boogie.
Say what you want about Justin Bieber, but how many of you have walked away with the “Artist of the Year” award? The teen star took home several awards at the American Music Awards Sunday night, including artist of the year, which he beat out his friend Usher for. Bieber also took home the award for “Favorite Male Artist.”
Don’t feel bad, Usher won the “Best Soul/R&B Male Artist and Album,” while Rihanna won for female in the same category. Brad Paisley and Taylor Swift won for best male and female country artists and favorite band went to the Black Eyed Peas.
The American Music Awards will take place in Los Angeles Nokia Theatre on November 21 at 5.00PM. I'm afraid the price of the tickets looks horribly expensive. Check out the list of the live performers !
Kid Rock, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Carlos Santana, Gavin Rossdale, New Kids on the Block & Backstreet Boys (wait.. what ???), Rihanna, Ne-Yo & Sean "Diddy" Combs, Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, Bon Jovi, Pink, Usher.
Who said kids rule the world because of their parents visa ? Go tweet little bird ! The voting period is closed now. The show will be on ABC.
The MTV Europe Music Awards stopped in Madrid yesterday. You might not have the time to watch the whole show so I made a list of the winners for your eyes only. If you still want tou watch the show, here is the link you need.
Eva Longoria was the master of ceremony. She had a pimpilicious full of diamonds microphone, and more than ten different outfits during the ceremony.
As you can see this skewer of winners looks pretty deliscious for kids, but could suffer from a lack of taste for the others.
The New Jersey rock band Bon Jovi got a knock at the door late Saturday when they were playing in East Hampton. According to Page 6, Jon Bon Jovi invited over 60 guests to his home for his annual party to close out the summer. The event included fireworks, live music from the band and even Jack Nicholson.
When cops arrived Jon invited them in for just one last song.
My question is: What neighbor if anyone would call the cops for I'm guessing, a loud noise violation? It's Bon Jovi let alone a free concert in the luxury of your own home. Did I mention it's Bon Jovi?
