On Saturday, thousands of people turned out at Camden's Susquehanna Bank Center for the seventh annual MMRBQ, radio station WMMR's celebration of rock-and-roll, beer...and beer. Musical guests included Soundgarden, Alice In Chains and Cheap Trick, among others, and WMMR's top talent, including Pierre Robert and the Preston & Steve entourage, held down the fort. I decided to make the trip to see what all the fuss was about. Below, some observations.John Bolaris Is Still In PhiladelphiaThough he's been threatening to vacate the Philadelphia area, everybody's favorite weatherguy hasn't left yet. Here he is backstage getting an unsolicited kiss from some
I was at a bat mitzvah a few years ago, and when the music started, the eighth-grade boys awkwardly grabbed the girls from behind and started grinding, and the girls were pushing right back as though they expected to feel something (later, girls, later). It seemed very music video-inspired and enormously embarrassing for them—as they'd learn 10 years later when they'd unearth the DVD. Some adults were disturbed by the pretend-adult sexuality in the dancing, but it just made me laugh.
Since every other post today is literally about death and taxes, let's take a break and check in with Philly homebody and one-time Sexiest Man Alive, Bradley Cooper:Did you know that Bradley Cooper lives with his mom?In an interview with the May issue of Details Magazine (out April 23), the Academy Award-nominated actor explains his unique living situation."The best way I can answer that is to say we're surviving. Both of us," says Cooper, 38. "Let's face it: It's probably not easy for her, by the way, to be living with her son. It's life. And right now, two years after
On Sunday night, after the 1983 Sixers were honored at the Wells Fargo in a celebration of their championship season, Julius "Dr. J" Erving was honored by his family at a private party held at the Stratus Lounge at Hotel Monaco Philadelphia. Family and friends flew in from around the country to celebrate this special night. Pictured: Moses Malone, Stedman Graham, Dr. J, Reggie Johnson, and Clemon Johnson. The Johnson brothers were excited to be back in Philly and feel the love of the great Philadelphia fans. The first thing they did when they got to town was to run to the Reading Terminal to eat a cheesesteak.
Coming soon to a bookstore near you: The Diary of Justin Bieber. Or as I like to call it, Baby, Baby, Baby, Oh: Meet Me in the Attic, Anne.
Your average couple celebrates a fifth wedding anniversary with a white-tablecloth dinner, drunken sex and a thoughtful gift. But when you're Jay-Z and Beyonce, you go to Cuba and smile for the cameras. When I saw the vacation photos of Beyonce and Jay-Z in Cuba, I didn't think much of it. But over the weekend, questions came up about the legality of their sojourn, given that travel to Cuba remains a questionable affair.They may soon be explaining the trip to members of Congress, or facing a prison sentence and a fine. Treasury Department regulations prohibit Americans from traveling to Cuba “unless
The New York Times' dry notation about Drew Katz's (son of Inquirer owner Lew Katz) wedding, held at the Breakers in Palm Beach, definitely did not include all the fun details that South Florida gossip site GossipExtra.com and the New York Post have published, like:• GossipExtra puts the wedding tab at more than $1.5 million, which may seem like a lot of cash, but keep in mind that Lew Katz sold the New Jersey Nets for $300 million in 2004.• Recognizable faces among the 500-plus guests included Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Oprah BFF Gayle King, Newark mayor Cory Booker, bad girl socialite blogger
If you bother to read music reviews, and if you happen to have read any reviews of Beyoncé's music, you'll notice that critics always say the same thing: Show us who you are. Strangely, many critics said the same about her recent Life Is But a Dream documentary effort for HBO. For some reason, Ms. Knowles-Carter's true persona remains elusive. Her most formidable attempt to do so was on the ironically schizophrenic double-disc I Am ... Sasha Fierce, a mix between lethargic, weepy, self-affirming ballads and oversexed, too-hot-to-trot anthems for "all the single ladies."
Anne Hathaway, whose parents--LaSalle graduates--have Philly roots, was in town this weekend, partying as inconspicuously as possible. (But not inconspicuously enough.) Philly Chitchat reports that she was spotted Saturday night in a pink wig and sunglasses at the Ten Six Club, off Rittenhouse Square, for a cousin's bachelorette party. And last night, if these twitnesses are to be trusted, she was exposing herself to risk of infectious disease at 30th St. Station.Nothing like seeing Anne Hathaway disguised like she was in the princess diaries in the Philly train station! #famous #awesome— Sally Lim (@sallymanderr) March 24, 2013Just saw Anne Hathaway
