The 2018 MTV Movie Award Winners.


 

Wakanda Forever! We’re still a long way from next year’s Academy Awards but comic book fans are already hoping that Black Panther will be recognised at the ceremony (making it the first superhero movie to receive a Best Picture nod since The Dark Knight). Regardless, the Marvel Studios movie dominated at the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards picking up a number of huge wins at the show.

Stranger Things, meanwhile, took charge of the television field. That’s no great surprise giving its popularity but an argument could definitely be made that the second season wasn’t quite up there with the first! Going back to Black Panther, it’s great to see the movie receive so many awards and it just goes to show that it resonated with moviegoers in a big way. Did you catch the ceremony?

The Purple Reign Of Future.


en-cours-nouveau-morceau-de-future-en-attendant-evol-son-649

Earlier this year, Future hit 22 cities in 32 days on his Purple Reign tour, and MTV were along for the ride. In this new documentary, Future’s Reign, we get a closer look at Hendrix’s tour stop in Dallas, where he prayed, performed and made it rain at the strip club.  The Atlanta rapper also sat down for an honest (no pun intended) conversation about his early days hustling, dealing with loneliness and unhappiness when he moved to L.A., missing his Aunts funeral due to rap commitments and the realities of juggling a busy music career with fatherhood. Hit singles and platinum plaques aside, Future’s biggest concern is staying true to himself.

“The best thing I can do is be myself,” he said. “If people try to tell you to change and do something else and try new things that you not comfortable with — basically sell your soul — you’re going to wake up and look in the mirror and you gon’ feel like you don’t know this person.”

Throwback Thursday: Field Mob – ‘Sick Of Being Lonely’.


2011-topic-pages-music-field-mob

Throwback Thursday now has a new meaning (on the blog anyway), and we’ll be reminding you of some of those hits that modern music community will never forget.  I remember the first time I heard Field Mob, because I never stopped hearing their hit “Sick of Being Lonely” after that.  Check out the throwback below.

Ruby Rose

If this is what I can look forward to for my tour here in Australia then I am all in (And yes, I just touched down safely in Sydney today). Ruby Rose is the hottest new cast-member of the show ‘Orange is the new Black” and she is, you guessed it, from Australia.

Ruby Rose Langenheim, better known as Ruby Rose, is an Australian model, DJ, actress, television presenter, MTV VJ and recording artist. She is the face of Maybelline New York in Australia.

The beautiful gender-bending actress reportedly came out as lesbian when she was 12 but has recently gone viral due to her stunning looks on ‘Orange Is The New Black’ so fellas don’t leave your lady round her!

“Woke up trending on Twitter and I haven’t seen the show yet got me feeling realllllll vulnerable right now!” she tweeted. “Hope you’re all loving the show.”

Lil Wayne – Krazy (Official Video)


lil-wayne

Dressed in a white straitjacket, the video opens Wayne being dragged through an insane asylum as prisoners creepily recite The Lord’s Prayer. Throughout the video, Wayne is shown eating in the asylum’s cafeteria, taking part in group therapy, taking his medicine, being locked in a padded room with his two alter-egos, starting a riot among the prisoners, and finally being electrocuted in an electric chair.

I’m not talking about being crazy in the song, I’m just talking about being me, and a lot of people view that as crazy so we just wanted to capture that and have fun with it.~ Lil Wayne explained to MTV.

Eminem – Rap God (Official Video).


Nový objekt - Bitová mapa (5).bmpEminem’s return to the rap game has come with some ups and downs since “Relapse”.  But the MMLP2 project has graced his fans with the “style of Em” that made him famous in the first place.  The newly debuted video for “Rap God” reminds of the material plastered all over MTV back in the 2000’s.  Check the method below.

Gatorade Benefit Project

Gatorade has partnered with artists from around the world to create a dynamic print campaign featuring star athletes representing different sports such as NFL, Baseball, Tennis and Athleticism. The campaign features illustrations of the athletes that demonstrate the benefits of Gatorade products and drives at the idea that athletic performance is driven from the inside. Commissioned by TBWA\Chiat\Day he was direct to illustrate a combo of 3 ads for the campaign including the artworks for Cam Newton, Derek Jeter and Usain Bolt, the visual direction was well accepted by PepsiCo and they invited me also for a fourth ad for JJ Watt and participate on a feature for MTV interviewing the star.

Busta Rhymes Discusses Lil Wayne’s Negative Remarks About New York.


“Everybody’s entitled to their opinion,” NY native Busta said Wednesday on Hot 97 personality Angie Martinez’s afternoon show to promote his new free LP Year of the Dragon.  In fact, Busa Bus has similar feelings toward El Paso, Texas, after he and his entourage were arrested after performing there several years back. “It don’t mean I don’t like the people there, it don’t mean I don’t like my support, my love, but I don’t like El Paso,” the Dungeon Dragon stated, making his point very clear. “My experience in El Paso makes me not like it. I haven’t done another show there since.”  As far as his buddy Weezy, Busta understands why he’s down on the Big Apple. On Monday, MTV News asked Wayne how it felt to perform in New York on August 14 with Nicki Minaj.

“You know, flat out: I don’t like New York,” Weezy said before saying he had an “awesome” time on stage with Nicki.  State Senator Malcolm A. Smith of Queens was “angry,” “taken aback” and “shocked” by Lil Wayne’s contempt for his beloved city, according to The New York Times, so much so that he organized a conference in Father Duffy Square, between West 46th and West 47th Streets, on Wednesday to demand an apology.  “If you don’t like New York,” Smith said, according to the NY Times, “you don’t have to come to New York. You don’t have to sell your products here. And perhaps we won’t come to your concerts.”

Dev Fans Rejoice.


MTV has a new series about Dev. Watch the 22 year old pop star show MTV behind the scenes for the launch of her career as a popstar recording her album, touring, as well as her life as a mom.

Rob Dyrdek Kickflips A Car.


Following GM’s publicity stunt, which dropped a 2012 Chevy Sonic out of a plane, MTV-reality and action sports-star Rob Dyrdek recently performed a kick flip in the Chevy Sonic. For those of us that didn’t grow up riding skateboards, a kick flip is a 360-degree rotation in mid-air.  “A kick flip with a Chevy Sonic was a no-brainer,” said Dyrdek. “I am a Chevy guy from my ’69 Camaro to the Tahoe I drive every day. The Sonic’s power and sportiness made it the perfect vehicle for this awesome stunt.”

 

 

The stunt was performed at Six Flags Magic Mountain, while MTV filmed the feat for the Season 5 premiere of Fantasy Factory. Dyrdek executed the kick flip over the world’s-largest skateboard that he created for a previous stunt.

Boating Around The Port Of Maimi.



99% of the time I travel, it’s either for business or for vacation.  Rarely do I ever mix a trip up with a bit of both, but my recent voyage to Miami was just that.  My assistant and I stayed up the entire night before to leave at 3 in the morning, jumped on our plane before the sun came up, made a short trip to Texas, and got into MIA before night fall.  Immediately the next morning we got up and started drinking before grabbing some food at the beach and getting down to business.  Most of our days were like that until our last, where some friends and one of my cousins linked up and took an interesting, and very relaxing trip on a private boat around some of the water ways of Miami.

Aside from a few dolphins that were chilling by our boat, some of the highlights of that morning were some of the sights around Star Island.  We peeped out one of Diddy’s cribs, saw one of the original MTV Cribs houses, and even swung by a MONSTER boat owned by the prince of some Arab nation… and his “shadow boat” that was equally as big, required 30 crew to operate, only carried his cars, smaller boats, and other various toys, and who’s sole purpose was to follow his main boat around just in case he needed some extra entertainment.  (Baller).  I took some pics of a couple of other attractions.  Check the method below.

The $22 Mil. Yacht where they filmed "I'm On A Boat".

The most photographed house in Miami... The mansion where they filmed Scarface.

Gloria Estephan's house next to Sylvester Stalone's place. (Don't mind my finger in the corner)

The pool house of Al Capone's Maimi compound.

And once again, an infinite thank you to Kamekia, Danny, B, Ash, and Jay.

Pop Them’ Thangs.


Everyone remembers the old flip books you’d try and make during a boring class in middle school.  Well apparently the marketing folks over at good old MTV Brazil have decided to ‘fill’ the idea with an interesting air.  The video below is an ad that consists of hundreds of balloons set up in a line, each with a slightly different illustration on it. They simply moved the camera forward, which caused the balloon in front to pop, and reveal the next in line.  An incredibly strenuous illustration process I’m sure, but an incredible effect at the end.  Check the method below.

Gucci Guilty


The guys over at Gucci have hired Frank Miller (Sin City, 300, The Spirit) to helm a new television commercial to promote Gucci Guilty — apparently the new fragrance for her.  The Frank Miller spot stars Chris Evans of the Fantastic Four films and Evan Rachel Wood from HBO’s True Blood with music provided by Friendly Fires.  This is just a tease but the Frank Miller aesthetic, seen onscreen in “Sin City” and “Spirit,” is on full display here.
