OMG YOU GUYS OMGGGZZZZZ
Hey, what’s up with “omgzz”, anyway? I don’t get it.
Whoa, Nelly. Our girl has a few things to celebrate while she performs and parties it up on Sunday – like, she just scored her first UK number one with “Maneater” (her current European single, which if you haven’t heard, you must). AND, her big phat album “Loose” is dropping on Tuesday. This will be the summer of Nelly, and it’s just getting started!
Simple Plan think they’re sooooooooo cool. Well, maybe they are. I guess we’ll find out on Sunday night when the weiner for People’s Choice: Favourite Canadian Group is announced. They’ve won this trophy for the past three years and if all goes according to their evil plan, they’ll make it four years in a row. Personally, I know Hedley have some nasty tricks up their sleeve, so the battle is on! FIGHT! FIGHT!
Christina Milian has been dropped by her label (YES, this has something to do with MMVAs, hold your horses), apparently because she refused boss L.A. Reid when she refused to record a little ditty called “S.O.S”. Rihanna of course snatched that one up and well, looky at what happened. Christina’s song of choice, “Say I”, did paltry numbers compared to “S.O.S”. Now cross your fingers that Rihanna steams up MMVA night with that track!
You don’t have to look very far for Nick Lachey news, huh. All the blogs are loving that he’s been hanging out extremely lovingly with this Vanessa Minnillo chick. Vanessa used to date baseball dreamboat (haha, I said dreamboat) Derek Jeter, so uh, Jessica Simpson – if you’re looking, I know a certain ball player who might need a little company! Hubba, hubba.
Metric are living it out (ack, bad pun) on tour right now, and soon after, madame Emily Haines will release her first solo album (due in September)! Please, please, Metric will live on in solidarity and rock … idarity? Taste their delicious dish of Metric in action on Sunday – it’s seriously a must see.
Another band who always puts on a solid show is Fall Out Boy (with enthusiasm!). But despite their recent haul of success, it would seem that bassist Pete Wentz is still quite content to live at home with his parents. Well, hey man – free food, your most favouritest bed in the world – and by now, his parents are sure to know that if there’s a hat on his bedroom doorknob, DO NOT enter.
When Dallas Green set out to release his solo project, little did he know that City and Colour would go gold. Yes, it’s more than he BARGAINED for, mwahahaha. Anyway, his own label has been doing very nicely, thank you, as well – they just signed three new acts, which you can check out on his MySpace blog!
And hooray – cause after Yellowcard’s singer Ryan faced never singing again, he’s recovered from throat surgery and will be hitting the MMVA stage with a new force TO BE RECKONED WITH. What, what.
Only two days til show time! OMGGGGGZZZZ (seriously, what’s up with the ‘z’)!Tweet
