This week in Parlouroids … The Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O brought her special brand of weirdness to the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California while Solange Knowles stylishly watched from the crowd. Big sister Beyoncé bared her (sewn on) nipples thanks to a new bodysuit during her Miss Carter World Tour in Belgrade, Serbia. Do you like? We don’t think we do, actually. That was hard to type.
Silver Linings Playbook and Rush Hour star Chris Tucker will be hosting the BET Awards and Tracy Morgan will be hosting the Billboard Awards. Here’s hoping both will be funny. In Los Angeles at the MTV Movie Awards, Jamie Foxx, with his daughter in tow, wore a t-shirt depicting images of Trayvon Martin and the Sandy Hook elementary school victims supporting gun regulation legislation as he accepted the 2013 MTV Generation Award — somehow this sparked racist tweets toward Jamie. Kevin Hart was held for suspicion of drunk driving near his Southern California home, and took to Twitter upon his release, writing, “When the cop asked me to take the sobriety test I said “WHY WASTE OUR TIME…I’M DRUNK MAN” …..#TrueStory … This is a wake up call for me, I have to be smarter & last night I wasn’t.”
On the interwebs, Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” song leak, featuring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers, turned out to be bogus but the group’s Random album tracklist was not. Big K.R.I.T. also released his new King Remembered In Time mixtape.
Tragedy struck the United States through Monday’s Boston marathan bombing and President Obama ordered the American flag lowered to half staff, symbolizing America’s mourning. In Egypt, the judge presiding over the retrial of former president Hosni Mubarak has stepped down, pushing the trial date to May 11. Mubarak is charged with the murder of Egptian protestors in 2011 among other charges and he was ordered back to prison. In England, American conductor Marin Alsop will become the first woman to conduct The Last Night of The Proms at Royal Albert Hall in 118 years.
