Maroon 5′s Adam Levine Says ‘F*ck You’ To The MTV VMAs

Last night, one day before the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards airs live on MTV tonight, Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice judge Adam Levine took to his official Twitter profile to publicly denounce the VMAs. In an effort to release some “angsty teenager … raw honesty”, Levine blasted MTV for not genuinely caring about music telling the VMAs that they can “fuck” off. This rant seems a bit odd considering that Maroon 5 won an MTV Video Music Award back in 2004, a fact that MTV cheekily reminded Levine of in response to his Twitter rant yesterday. More »

MIGHTY deadMAU5

After much recuperating yesterday afternoon/evening, I finally managed to rally enough to get out of the house last night. I met up with Emma and Josh and Emma’s mom and her boyfriend for a late dinner at Upper West in Santa Monica, CA to help Josh celebrate the end of a very successful play run. Josh’s play Blood Wedding ends this weekend and, by all accounts, he has been hailed as THE star of the show … so we were happy to toast to his success last night. After dinner, at around midnight, I made my way to the Hollywood Palladium to see superstar DJ Deadmau5 live in concert. I have to say, I went to the show without any expectations and ended up leaving completely WOWed! It was a great show, no question. Click below to see some photos and video from last night’s performance. More »

As some of you may be well aware, Summer vacation is quickly coming to an end and very soon, the Beckham boys will have to say goodbye to the beach and hello to the school classroom. But, before the Beckhams have to bid farewell to the beach for the Summer, daddy Becks decided to play photographer in order to snap some fun photos of the boys as they played in surf. More »
