Madonna releases new single “Girl Gone Wild”

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

In advance of her latest studio album MDNA, pop diva Madonna released her new single yesterday titled “Girl Gone Wild”. Her new album is slated for release on March 26, after which Madonna begins her 2012 World Tour on May 29th in Tel Aviv, Israel.
This latest single is described by Billboard.com as “no-nonsense electro-pop, with a driving beat and propulsive hook that recalls Madge’s 2005 single Hung Up.” The track was produced in a collaboration between Madonna, dance music icon Benny Benassi and his partner Ale Benassi.

Punk icon Henry Rollins caught shopping at Wal-Mart!

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

Now this is something you’d never expect to see on People of Wal-Mart: punk icon Henry Rollins!

Rollins is famous both for his time in Black Flag (the band responsible for underground hits like “TV Party” and “Six Pack”) and for his solo career, as well as for his weekly television show on IFC. He’s also famous for his distaste for embodiments of mainstream, consumer culture, so it’s puzzling what he was doing in Wal-Mart (which, love it or hate it, is about as mainstream and consumerist as you can get: it’s a chain store!).

What do you think the beloved (yet often grumpy) rocker was shopping for? Let us know in the comment section below!

The Grammys: tribute, celebration, and controversy

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

The VIP clients we sent to the Grammy Awards must have had an amazing time (yes, we can get you tickets for next year’s ceremonies too – give us a call!). For the rest of us, though, watching from home was almost as good – we got to see a plethora of amazing outfits, see which of our predictions were right for the various award categories, and (of course) check out a series of outstanding live performances by some of the best artists in the business.

The death of Whitney Houston on Saturday cast a shadow over the proceedings, and was addressed in several moving tributes.

All was not gloom and doom, however – the red carpet was chock-full of artists looking great, and most charming moment of the evening had to go to Adele’s chipper pose with a literal armful of awards.

Nicki Minaj ruffled a few feathers with her date (an actor dressed as the Pope) and an exorcism-themed performance which some called sacrilegious. Check it out for yourself:
