You may remember we did an interview and profile with huge musical talent SIRPAUL™ a while back, here he brings us his report from the 2012 Logo NewNowNext Awards in LA.
The most colorful names in pop culture were flaunting some daring fashion and putting on quite a show at the 2012 Logo NewNowNext Awards on April 5th at Avalon in Los Angeles, California. The show (which aired on April 9th at 10pm on MTV’s Logo channel) recognizes “who’s who” and what’s hot in pop culture. This year, yours truly – SIRPAUL™- was invited to make an appearance on the red carpet to promote my new single “Body Connection” (feat. Loco Ninja) and talk about my new album “The Horse”.
It was a star-studded event that left no fashion moment unimagined. From pop stars to movie stars to drag queens and everything in between, this years show was something truly unforgettable. Check out this slide show of whatBuzzfeed.com called All of the WTF Fashion from Logo’s NewNowNext Awards. I think you will get the idea LOUD and clear.
This year’s host Kelly Osbourne made a whopping 7 costume changes! Kelly also humorously pointed out that she has earned her right to critique other people’s fashion choices (on her hit show Fashion Police) while a slideshow played behind her revealing every fashion-don’t moment Kelly’s ever had! (Gotta love a girl who can poke fun at herself and blame her past poor fashion choices on drug use!)
Designer Jeremy Scott was wearing a “bedazzling” leather outfit to accompany the look he created for his muse, China Chow. China brazenly wore a Jeremy Scott original coat made of hand dyed, 100% human, rainbow colored hair!
Perez Hilton himself may have actually stole the show! Hisfreshly remodeled torso made it’s own appearance as he appeared shirtless on the red carpet wearing only a jacket and matching pants. (I guess if you’re working out that hard, you want to show it off, right? I’m certainly not one to talk here. I mean have you seen my new album cover!!)
After falling in line with major fashion icons, TV & Movie Stars and some pretty major pop stars to do press, we all gathered inside to watch the drama unfold before our eyes…and let me tell you this: It was sheer madness!
Some stars played it safe like The Hunger Games Josh Hutcherson, Busy Phillips, Ashley Madekwe & Christa Allenfrom ABC’s Revenge and some played it sexy like Kat Graham, Janina Gavankar, The Talk’s Aisha Tyler and comedienne Heather McDonald. (Some we wished would’ve played dead like the not-so-friendly Kyle Richardsof The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills who sat next to her “plus-one” Faye Resnik and talked smack abouteveryone in the room all night. Surprised? We actuallywere.)
One of my newest obsessions is supermodel Andrej Pejic. Even though you’ve seen him in every major fashion magazine and on the runway, this gender-bending rule breaker is totally real, super cool and down to earth. (Not to mention beyond stunning.)
I got chat with some fellow up-and-coming electropop stars like the event’s DJ for the night, Kerli who was super cool and very down-to-earth despite her very out-of-this-world outfit
One of the evening’s most memorable performers was new comer Rye Rye. Her energy was way over the top with inflatable beach toys, a chinese dragon and backup dancers that put Salt N’ Pepa to shame. Her new single “Boom! Boom!” is infectious! Check it out HERE.
What a difference a year in the pop-star machine can make! Sadly, I didn’t have the chance to speak with last year’s DJ and one of this year’s main acts Neon Hitch. She looked super hot as she performed her new single “Love U Betta” with some backup dancing courtesy of this years lineup of drag queens from Logo’s most popular showRuPaul’s Drag Race.
I had to save the best for last. Two words: Adam Lambert. The American Idol star’s performance of his new single “Trespassing” was a mind-blowing power anthem second only to Queen that ended in a massive explosion of confetti that I’m still finding all over the place while emptying out my suitcase.
Until next time… xxx @SIRPAUL
