We don’t normally see Alicia Keys rocking dangerously low cut tops, so it’s nice to see that someone’s feeling really sexy these days! The 32-year-old singing momma is enjoying the summer in Sydney as she made an appearance at Foxtel Music Channel’s Summer Launch event held at the Botanic Gardens. To celebrate the launch of two new MTV channels, MTV Music & MTV Dance, Alicia Keys hit the stage to bust out three of her hits including ‘How Come You Don’t Call Me,’ ‘Brand New Me’ and a localized version of ‘Empire State of Mind Part II Broken Down’.
As for the beautiful 27-year-old Nicole Trunfio, the Aussie model was on hand to some good old sex appeal to the event. We should note that she’s dating Austin, TX based guitarist & actor Gary Clark, Jr..
Alicia Key’s Keep A Child Alive 10th Annual Black Ball was held at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Founded by the singer in 2003, the non-profit cbenefits children and families living with HIV, helping local clinics in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, South Africa and India with treatment programs, food assistance and orphan care. In addition to Alicia hitting the stage, other performers included Pharrell, Carole King, Kathleen Battle, British soul singer Laura Mvula and R&B-jazz fusion master Roy Ayers. Since 2004 the event has raised over $18.5 million and we’re sure last night’s event was a success. Visit Keep a Child Alive for more information and how you can help.

The 2013 Costume Institute Gala was held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. In celebration to the Met’s exhibition “PUNK: Chaos to Couture”, the event brings out a who’s who in the world of fashion with numbers of celebrities wearing one-of-a-king creations. The gala was co-chaired by co-chaired by Rooney Mara, Lauren Santo Domingo, Riccardo Tisci, and Anna Wintour. For more coverage from last night’s gala, visit The Met Gala at Vogue.com.
The upcoming exhibition will feature punk’s influence on fashion including “original punk garments and recent, directional fashion to illustrate how haute couture and ready-to-wear borrow punk’s visual symbols.” The exhibition runs from May 9th through August 16th. For more information, visit “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” at The Met website.
Both singers Alicia Keys & Taylor Swift traveled to Madrid, Spain to attend the 2013 40 Principales Awards held at the Palacio de Deportes. For their troubles, aside from bagging appearance fees, room & board, both ladies were nominated for the Best International Act award along w/ David Guetta, Flo Rida, & Maroon 5. Of course, Taylor Swift won the award.
For those of you who give a shit, check Taylor’s performance from the event. She wore a very leggy getup—nothing special, but definitely better than one of her prepubescent dresses.
So as we mentioned in the previous post, KIIS FM’s 2012 Jingle Ball had two shows with two different lineups held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. Whereas the first show included performance by Taylor Swift, the second show included performances by Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, Flo Rida, and The Wanted.

Alicia Keys’ fifth studio album “Girl on Fire” officially released today & as she’s been diligently doing for the past week, she continued giving promotional interviews in NYC. Earlier this morning the Grammy-winning 31-year-old singer was seen working a new, shorter hairdo as she arrived at Sirius Radio studios in NYC. Check the album review in the L.A. Times >>>
Here’s “Brand New Me,” the second single off the album to hit airwaves:
If you aren’t stuck in the kitchen today all day with the turkey baster or trying to figure out how to lattice your apple pie, and you aren’t parked in front of the big screen watching college teams duke it out with a pig skin, treat yourself to the sound of Alicia Keys singing (of all things) the theme from the 1980s Disney animated series and classic The Gummi Bears. You can thank the quixotic musical stylings of Jimmy Fallon for this one.
Lest you need a refresher because it’s been a while since you tuned in to the Disney Afternoon, the Gummi Bears were an ancient race of magical bears who saved the kingdom of Dunwyn with the help of a magical elixir called Gummi Beary Juice. Humans (as they tend to) tried to steal the secret of the juice and use it for evil, so the Gummi Bears broke off all ties with humanity and went into hiding, leaving later generations of humans to think of the bears as only a fairy tale or children’s story. Naturally, a young boy finds the Gummi Bears one day and teams up with them for weekly adventures against the show’s resident villain and his ogres.
What’s next? Pink doing a rendition of the theme from Darkwing Duck? Or the Jonas Brothers covering the Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers title track? Those Disney folks never stop thinking, do they?
