If you know me, you know I have a thing for pop culture. I am usually up to date on all the celeb gossip, current music, scandals, trends etc etc. With that in mind, I of course visit all of Perez Hilton’s sites religiously. I don’t care what anyone says about him; that man has a love of music that I totally can relate to. He loves finding unknown artist and blowing them up, spreading their work to the mass and letting them be heard. Perez has these concerts called One Night in.. [fill in State] and I entered the contest to win tickets to the concert here in NYC. I actually won tickets to the LA show but they told me the day before and there was NO way I was going to find a cheap flight in 24 hours BUT it’s okay because I won tickets for the NYC show too! So, tonight I went to Perez Hilton’s “One Night in New York City” with a friend and had an outstanding time. The last four hours have been spent jamming to Karmin, Iggy Azalea, Boys II Men, Mary J Blige, Anjulie and a bunch of awesome DJ’s but most import DJ of the night had to have been DJ. Pauly D. I have officially fist pumped with Pauly D. Number 754 of my Bucket list..CHECK.
I danced non stop, took pictures like I was the paps, chatted up with my friend and sang like my ass was up on that stage. Let me just saw, I am blessed to have parents who appreciate all types of music, so I of course GEEKED out when Boys II Men came on because that’s music I listened to growing up [thanks mama!] After 20 years of being in the industry, those men still got it!! Panties were dropping and bras were hitting the stage. They are THAT great. I was going full on eyes closed, clutching my chest and singing…NO SHAME.
I loved every second of it, granted we were standing for four hours but I was smart and wore flats just in case. My feet would have been barking had I worn heels!
Good music was heard, great dancing took place and it was all for an amazing cause. So overall GOOD TIMES.
Perez just light a fire in me…now I just want to go to concerts and listen to really fantastic music and dance dance dance.
Ps. If you haven’t heard of Iggy Azalea check her out, she was sick and she’s an Aussie which makes her cool already. Actually check out everyone because they were all on point! Also, please check the GLSEN website which is the fantastic organization all proceeds from tonights concert went to. There are people out there doing admirable work.
