The Black Keys Rock New York’s Global Citizen Festival

NEW YORK ? Given, well, everything about the Black Keys, they’re probably not the first band that comes to mind when you think of “global ambassadors.”

And yet, after a decade of grinding it out, and a string of hits that stretches back three albums ? at least ? they’ve become one of the most popular rock acts on the planet (even though they’d probably never admit it), which is why they seemed such a natural fit for Saturday (September 29) night’s Global Citizen Festival, the culmination of the Global Poverty Project’s campaign to end extreme poverty around the world.

Of course, in keeping with their blue-collar roots, they didn’t use their time on stage to discuss politics. instead, they simply rolled up their sleeves (or, in frontman Dan Auerbach’s case, tossed off his leather jacket) and tore through a set of searing, hard-riffing rock, one that had the 60,000 who packed Central Park’s Great Lawn losing their collective minds.

Kicking things off with “Howlin’ For You,” the Keys ran roughshod through their back catalog, making stops at slow-burners like “Next Girl” and “Nova Baby,” going full-throttle through chortling chuggers like “Just The Same Old Thing” and “Gold on the Ceiling,” and letting things boil over on fuzzed-out hits like “Little Black Submarines” and “Lonely Boy.”

Auerbach spent the set pulling elastic solos out of his menagerie of axes, and drummer Patrick Carney ? who, organizers pointed out to MTV News, had just come back from his honeymoon ? based with reckless abandon. Aided by their backing band, they blasted through muscly songs like “Moneymaker” and “Tighten Up,” and, by the time their hour was up, had the throngs wanting more.

With a lineup that boasted sets from the Foo Fighters and Neil Young with Crazy Horse, they were sure to get even more. But for 60 minutes, the Black Keys held the thousands in their hands, rocked hard, and didn’t let up for a single instance. Charity concerts should always be this awesome. And this unassuming.

Filed under Uncategorized

Looking like she may have partied a bit too hard, Christina Aguilera was spotted leaving Spago restaurant in Beverly Hills on Friday (September 28) with noticeable help from boyfriend Matt Rutler and a security guard.

The “Dirty” singer celebrated the release of the new music video for “ Your Body” in a black-and-white patterned dress. She even sported hot pink platform heels to match her pink and purple hair tips.

In addition to her hot new music video, fans can see the 31-year-old star in October when a new PSA for the United Nations World Hunger Relief hits the airwaves.

As the global spokesperson for the charity, Christina stars in the spot that depicts a mother’s emotional battle, struggling to provide food for her starving child. “The Voice Within,” plays in the background, while the pop star urges viewers to give hungry kids a voice.

Speaking about the campaign, she recently stated, “The concept of my new PSA for Yum! Brands’ World Hunger Relief effort really moves me, not just because I’m a mother, but because it speaks to anyone who has ever struggled to feed their children. It is a devastating issue but one that we can help solve and that’s why I’m so passionate about using my voice by raising awareness.”

Amber Rose, her baby bump and her fiance are all featured in the latest issue of XXL.

The model and Wiz Khalifa are expecting their first child some time before the end of the year, and the ex-girlfriend of Kanye West says she’s very ready to be a mother.

“I?m going all-natural,” Rose tells the magazine. “I?ve decided that I?m going to have an all-natural water birth. No medicine. I want those bragging rights! The next time Wiz has a stomachache or anything, I?ll say, ?I popped out a baby all-natural.??

What attracted Amber to her man?

“[H]e?s just a genuine sweet guy,” she says. “And I just said, ?You know what, I don?t care if he?s a rapper.? I don?t care if people say, ?Oh, you?re a gold-digger.? I don?t care if people say, ?Oh, you went from one rapper to another,? or whatever.

“I love him. I don?t look at him as a rapper. I look at him as Cameron Thomaz, not even Wiz Khalifa. I just fell so deeply in love with him, I didn?t care what anyone says.?

That’s actually very sweet. We say: Good luck you two!

The October/November issue of XXL hits newsstands on October 9.

Lady Gaga’s Body Revolution Sends ‘Wonderful Message,’ Experts Say

September 30, 2012 by admin  
Filed under Uncategorized

Lady Gaga opened up about her struggle with an eating disorder this week when she launched her Body Revolution 2013 campaign. Her deeply personal admission came just as she was facing criticism for an alleged weight gain.

In the days since announcing the campaign, Gaga’s Little Monsters flooded the site with their own tales of personal struggle. And according to experts, it’s that type of catharsis that can help lead to healing, along with the right professional help.

“In terms of the fact that her reach is so huge, it’s just a critical thing to have someone who is willing to speak out about really unrealistic standards and that incredible pressure to be thin often at the expense of health,” said Susie Roman, director of programs at the National Eating Disorders Association. “From our perspective, it’s really a step in the right direction when a celebrity like Lady Gaga is willing to do something like launch her Body Revolution campaign and really make statements to advocate for overall health as she did in her ‘thank you’ letter rather than focus on the pressure to be thin, which is just such a wonderful message for so many people who struggle with these issues in terms of developing healthier self-esteem and well-being.”

“The biggest and most important thing is it really gets people talking and gets people focused on it,” noted Laura Discipio, executive director at the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders. “Talking about eating disorders, talking about body image, talking about how women are viewed in the media, whether you like Lady Gaga’s music or not, it still at least gets attention for it. I think it definitely can help. It’s getting people the chance to stop and think. She’s talking about ‘you have to be brave.’ But we shouldn’t have to be brave about this; it shouldn’t occur.”

While Roman notes the positive in having a safe haven to open up, she said it should also be a place that is “providing support to one another to pursue recovery and get professional help. Stories of hope can be incredibly powerful for people suffering, because eating disorders can be a really isolating experience. And so being able to connect in a responsible and healthy environment is great.

“I think when you have such a huge fanbase, as a lot of these celebrities do, they have the opportunity to provide much-needed education about the seriousness of eating disorders and encourage those to get help,” she continued. “Recovery is possible from an eating disorder, and there absolutely is help available.”

As for the criticism that Gaga received for looking curvier, Roman thinks it’s an incredibly positive step that the singer is opening up about it. “It’s so unfortunate that that continues to happen, but it’s really fantastic when people like Lady Gaga are in that really public position [and] are willing to say something about it and point out the harm that it does and talk about it from a perspective from how it influences everybody,” she said. “To have someone like Lady Gaga willing to step up and advocate changing our overall media landscape is incredible.

“I have no idea how much she weighs, but it’s just sad that someone’s going to sit there and think, ‘Wow, look what people are saying about her. She’s this great famous celebrity; she’s smaller than me. What do people think about me?’ ” Discipio said, noting that while they may not be the person being criticized directly, “it really does affect people who hear it at the same time.”

At the end of the day, Discipio has this simple advice for anyone with an eating disorder: “Go to somebody that you trust and get some help.”

Can Anyone Pronounce Jake Gyllenhaal’s Name Right?

September 29, 2012 by admin  
Filed under Uncategorized

Capping off the work week with a television appearance, Jake Gyllenhaal stopped by “Conan” on Thursday (September 27) to promote his newly-released film “End of Watch.”

As the interview got underway, the “Brokeback Mountain” star was stunned that host Conan O?Brien was able to pronounce his last name correctly.

31-year-old Gyllenhaal went on to explain that there are very people who get it just right, saying, ?The only two places that that is pronounced correctly ? my last name, like you just did just now ? [are] Sweden and IKEA.?

Of course, the line went over well with the crowd – with Jake proving that he definitely has comedic chops while also being able to take a joke, adding, “Us Swedes, we are really great people. I mean, I?m half Swedish, you know?We come with simple instructions, and we seem great. At the end of it, your fingers are sore and you feel awful.?
