The concert will be recorded live and streamed only at 2vlive.com, so if you can't make it to NYC on December 3, make sure you tune into the livestream of the performance at 2vlive.com at 8 pm.This one night only performance is as exclusive as it gets! Fans will be able to get a full live set with Avril right here in NYC. She'll be playing a lot of her new singles and hopefully some throwbacks as well! Sk8r Boi we hope!
Besides the epic performances and awards, one of our favorite parts of awards shows is the fashion! Some celebrities really called on their inner fashion gods and goddesses last night. And some just well... didn't. Take a look at some our favorite celebrities who got it right and rocked the red carpet at the 2013 American Music Awards last night.
She didn't rock a dress adorned with Biggie and Tupac's face this time around (although she did wear a 2 piece get up adorned with cats during her performance). Miley decided to keep it classy at this award's show and she strolled down the red carpet in a simple Versace pantsuit.

Back in January, The Goddess Of Lakshmi began recording their first album with the help of Chicago blues guitarist Felix Reyes. The word 'Lakshmi' is derived from the Sanskrit word "Laksya", meaning "aim" or "goal," which the Harlem-based band strives to reach by achieving prosperity of a musical value in all of 8 tracks. The new album, LOVE, is the product of one exhausting, yet rewarding journey complete with ‘cuts, scratches, and cigarette burns’. The recording and mixing process, done at Harlem Flophouse and then later at Felix’s studio, The House of Tone, ended with a flow of sound amplified by more textural qualities: close-knit rhythm sections, soul-drenched vocals, and storylines about love: both wanting and losing it.
Get ready "Litte Monsters", because the "Mother Monster" is in New York City, and ready to set Times Square ablaze. Lady Gaga will be on hand November 14th for the grand opening of H&M in Times Square. The pop superstar has the honor of lighting the gigantic H&M logo and matching glitter wall (can't miss it) in Times Square located between West 42nd and West 43rd Street. The store will open at midnight, and stay open for 24 hours, surprising customers with fashion-firendly giveaways, exclusive offers, and of course, a chance to meet Lady Gaga herself. If that weren't enough of an incentive to camp out on one of the busiest streets in New York City, the first 1,000 people in line will receive an extra special all access pass ranging in value from 10 to $1,000.
DJ/Producer Ben Pearce has been keeping himself quite busy. When the 25-year old isn't making hit records for himself, or producing for artists on his Purp & Soul imprint, he launches websites.
