    Sunday June 21, was the 2009 MuchMusic Video Awards held in Toronto. Many celebrities, artists, athletes including Perez Hilton, Jonas Brothers, Chris Bosh, Audrina from The Hills and Drake came out to support the awards. Danny Fernandes, Classified, Black Eyed Peas and Lady Gaga were some of last night’s winners.

    Best International Video – Group: Black Eyed Peas, “Boom Boom Pow”

    Pop Video of the Year: Danny Fernandes, “Private Dancer”

    MuchVibe HipHop Video: Classified, “Anybody Listening”

    MuchMusic.com Most Watched Video: Girlicious, “Like Me”

    As much as I didn’t really care for the awards presentation, the performances are always a good highlight. Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas and Classified were some of the artists that performed. Lady Gaga blew me away with her high energy, ultra charismatic performance. I firmly believe she is BETTER artist than Britney Spears. I am kind of mad that I missed her show on Friday.  If you missed the performance, check it out below.

    Lady Gaga – “Love Game & Poker Face”

    Black Eyed Peas – Boom Boom Pow

    Famous Blogger Perez Hilton got “assaulted” by Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas last night after the MuchMusic Video Awards After Party.

    Celebrity-blogger Perez Hilton claims he was assaulted outside a nightclub this morning following his appearance as a presenter at last night’s MuchMusic Video Awards.

    Hilton alleges that Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas and his security guards assaulted him shortly after 3 a.m. in front of Cobra night club on King St. W.

    Toronto police confirm that Hilton had contacted them with an assault allegation, but had no comment pending an investigation. In a Twitter posting, Will.i.am denied an assault took place.

    Perez Hilton confirmed via Twitter that he was assaulted by Will.I.Am and had a bloody nose.

    1. I’m in shock. I need the police ASAP. Please come to the SoHo Metropolitan Hotel now. Please.about 7 hours ago from Sidekick
    2. I was assaulted by Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas and his security guards. I am bleeding. Please, I need to file a police report. No joke.about 7 hours ago from Sidekick
    3. Still waiting for the police. The bleeding has stopped. I need to document this. Please, can the police come to the SoHo Met Hotel.about 7 hours ago from Sidekick

    Will.I.Am created a Twitter account last night and released this tweet below.

    1. i just made a twitter account because it isnt cool for someone to blame you and blast you with lies…about 6 hours ago from web

    Will.I.Am posted a video early this morning to talking about the altercation – [source] where he stated he didn’t hit Perez Hilton. So who did? Perez Hilton just released a video on his website talking about the assault and releases information on who punched him [source]. Perez stated that Will.I.Am’s manager “Polo” punched him in the face. So why are we using Will.I.Am name again? I understand it was something that happened between Will.I.Am and Perez Hilton but Will.I.Am didn’t punch you, his manager did.Too much unnecessary drama that went down last night but you gotta love Twitter for the exclusives. Who needs TMZ when you got Twitter. More story will unfold. Stay tuned.

    I can not keep up with Beyonce and her black & white videos. She released her second version for “Ego” (or third version if you want to include Kanye West). In this version, it all about her sitting in the chair all glam up. No dancers, no dancing and of course no booty. (lol)

    Check out the older version here: Original Version | Remix Version with Kanye West

    What’s Young, Fres & New: Red Cafe “General” featuring Maino

    I’ve been a huge fan of Red Cafe for a HOT minute. I’m a little disappointed that he signed with Bad Boys Records. We all know that Bad Boys Records can make and break career. It’s a cycle – Yung Joc, Dream, Da Band, Dainty Kane, G-Dep, Black Rob, Loon, Mase and so on.  I HOPE that this will not be the same case for Red Cafe.

    My homie Neenyo sent me a track that he helped produced for Red Cafe “General” featuring Maino which appears on the Hottest In The Hood.com Volume One Mixtape. Both Red Cafe & Maino has been tearing up the NYC scene for a minute. It’s nice to see that they are finally get the respect that they deserve. Check out another track of the moment below. Enjoy!

    Kanye West got on the Beyonce’s “Ego” track and now there is an official video. To tell you the truth, there isn’t a major difference from the original video. Same black & white settings just with a lil more Kanye West. Did they really need to make a video for this? Let’s be honest! Peep the video.
