Anticipation builds as the time draws closer and closer to this year’s Lollapalooza 2012 festival.  Tickets are selling quickly with only about a month standing between now and the kick-off of the festival in Grant Park located in Chicago, Illinois.

Festival Summery

Lollapalooza 2012 is a music festival that features many popular artists from a wide range of genres including alternative rock, heavy metal, punk rock and hip hop. The festival also features comedy acts and craft booths. It has also been known to provide a platform for non-profit and political groups.

Every year there are over 160,000 people who attend the three day long music festival. Numerous bands reached great publicity there including METALLICA, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, NINE INCH NAILS, MUSE, ALICE IN CHAINS, 30 SECONDS TO MARS, FOO FIGHTERS, and many more!

Brief History

Lollapalooza began over twenty years ago with a man who had a vision. In 1991 the lead singer of the rock group Jane’s Addiction, Perry Farrell, began to plan a farewell show for the band. These plans soon grew into something much larger, and transformed into a “larger-than-life musical roadshow” according to Lollapalooza’s website.

Farrell was inspired by Bill Graham who was successful promoter and impresario (a person who funds and organizes concerts, plays or operas).  With the help of Ted Gardener, Marc Geiger, and Don Muller, the festival was put on its way and became a huge success.

What does Lollapalooza mean?

The word Lollapalooza is most commonly known to mean “an extraordinary or unusual thing, person, or event; an exceptional example or instance.” The word can also be used to refer to a large lollipop. Farrell heard the word in a Three Stooges short film.

Lolla 2012 festival begins on August 3rd! So don’t miss out on this awesome experience!

It probably seemed like the weekend flew by for those who attended the three day2012 Bamboozle Fest in late May of 2012. It would seem to be a success with awesome performances by the fantastic dubstep producer Skrillex on the first day, memorable rock n’ roll jams by the Foo Fighters the second day, and  the classic rock tunes of Bon Jovi the third day. So, let’s take one last look at the Bamboozle Festival 2012.

2012 Bamboozle Festival

Day 1 (May 18): Asbury Park, New Jersey welcomes all of its guests to kick off this festival that has been ten years in the making. Today fans are psyched to see some awesome performances by SKRILLEX, INCUBUS, MAC MILLER, and a wide variety of different artists with genres ranging from hip hop to hardcore metal! Other artists included WE CAME AS ROMANS and DJE-V.

Day 2 (May 19): With one successful day down and out of the way, fans return from their respected overnight establishments to begin yet another solid day of fun. It seemed that if one was a fan of modern rock music, today was a good day to be attending. Artists on the second day included the FOO FIGHTERS, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, ALL AMERICAN REJECTS, and other great acts like NEVER SHOUT NEVER, THE MAINE and MOTION CITY SOUNDTRACK.

Day 3 (May 20): Unfortunately, it’s the last day, but at least fans can look forward to seeing some amazing performances by some of the most notable bands yet (at least according to some peoples’ preferences).  Day 3 consisted of the headliners BON JOVI, BRAND NEW, and THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM. In addition, there were performances by BUCKCHERRY, BOYS LIKE GIRLS, LIKE MOTHS TO FLAMES and TEXAS IN JULY.

Overall, it would seem to have been a great three days of music! Bamboozle Fest has come a long way since it evolved from Skate and Surf Festival to The Great Bamboozle in 2003. Its first headliners were Keller Williams, The Roots, and Dark Star Orchestra. To this day, the festival has a group of characters, some being real individuals with fake identities, and others being completely made up. Regardless, they all have their own purpose in the festival to make it run smoothly.

Madonna isn’t Lady Gaga, and she wants you to know

Madonna, the 53-year-old pop icon/superstar veteran recently kicked off her “MDNA” tour in the holy land of Jerusalem. She incorporated her hit songs from over the last three decades into this performance including “Like a Virgin”, “Gang Band”, and “Revolver”. Of course she used the material from her recent album “MDNA”!

It would seem, however, that the pop star had something to prove in her performance at the Ramat Gan stadium on Tel Aviv’s outskirts. While performing, she managed to fit in a newly added sampling of Lady Gaga’s song “Born This Way” in to her song “Express Yourself”.  At the end of the song she yelled “She’s not me!”

The pop diva, Lady Gaga, made her way into stardom four years ago, releasing hits like “Poker Face” and “Bad Romance”. Since, she has acquired an enormous following and her own risky reputation. Gaga’s influences included Elton John, David Bowie, Queen, and you guessed it, Madonna.

There have been rumors and thoughts of a rivalry between the two superstars, as both show similar characteristics both with their music, performances, and philosophies. Many Fans and critics link Gaga with Madonna in the late 1980s.

So is there a hidden rivalry between these to pop stars? Does Madonna want superiority of the younger version of herself? You be the judge!

Man accuses Justin Beiber of battery.

Justin Beiber had his big break after being discovered through his homemade videos that he uploaded onto YouTube.  He made his first album at the age of 15-years-olds and became a teen sensation gaining 41 million fans on Facebook and 20 million fans of Twitter.

This teen superstar allegedly ran into an altercation with a photographer while walking to his car.

Love Letter from Michael Jackson removed from auction

Recently, the items of the deceased music icon, Michael Jackson, have been set to be put up for auction. Among these items are shoes worn on stage, as well as costumes, various apparels, and some of the many accessories worn by the king of pop himself.

However one of the items that would be put up has been removed from the auction. This item happens to be a love letter written to Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis Presley and ex-wife of Michael Jackson. The couple was married from June 1994 to January 1996 when Presley filed for divorce for irreconcilable differences.  They also spent the following four years being an on-and-off couple trying to reconcile.

The letter read, “Lisa I truly need this rest. I haven’t slept literally [sic] in 4 days now. I need to be away from phones and business people. I must take care of my health first.” The letter was concluded with, “I’m crazy for you. Love, Turd.” Apparently Turd was a nickname for Jackson, at least I would assume.

Michael Jackson struggled from insomnia, a condition preventing him from sleep. He began using a drug called Propofol, which was the drug he overdosed on and passed away from. His doctor, Conrad Murray was sent to jail for four years after being guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

The owner of the letter told TMZ that, “I’m assuming it’s a personal nature, and we wanted to honor the request and continue our good relationship with Ms. Presley.”

Speaking of Elvis, Cirque du Soleil will be performing Viva Elvis, which is sure to be an awesome show, making a tribute to the king of Rock n’ Roll.  They will be performing from May 31 to August 18 in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Aria Resort & Casino – Elvis Theatre.

The American pop singer, songwriter, and actress has experienced a very successful career beginning in 1979. She is well known for her hits like “Like a Virgin”, “Vogue”, “Frozen”, and “Hung Up”, which were all no. 1 hits at some point.  Not to mention, those were only a few of her no. 1 hits!

She has been included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Artist, and she was crowned as the “Greatest Woman in Music” by VH1.  She has release a whopping 12 studio albums throughout her career.

Israeli pop fans are getting pumped for the upcoming performances that will be put on by the American superstar.  She landed in the holy land of Jerusalem to kick off her world tour, which begins next week. Fans were growing anxious as the diva arrived at the Tel Aviv Dan hotel. Guards had to shield her from various media.

Madonna fanatics are going as far as dressing up as the superstar at themed parties in her honor in the Tel Aviv clubs and bars.  It seems that she is quite popular there!

Though she isn’t Jewish, she has gained the Hebrew name of Esther. She also studies Jewish mysticism and is well known in Israeli media as “Queen Esther”.

Madonna will begin her tour on June 14th at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan, Milan and will end her tour on December 4th at Estadio do Morumbi (Formerly Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo) in Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo.
