NEW YORK, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- MTV will provide lights, cameras and plenty of Hollywood action as the network today announced that the 2010 "MTV Movie Awards" and "MTV Video Music Awards" will both air LIVE from Los Angeles this year.

By TONY RIAZZI BUT I DO LOVE "ROB & BIG" When watching an episode of "Next" I am usually zoned in, completely and totally engrossed. And trying to follow the intricate plot of a real life, characterdriven drama like "The Hills" is hard enough without background music. It's almost too much to take in all at once.

Well, as I sat one day watching what appeared to be "The Hills'" couple Heidi and Spencer's trademark romantic squabbles, in pops Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz. The staged argument and emo posterboy interruption was meant to...

By Jeffrey Goldfarb LISBON (Reuters) - Music videos were stifled by the downloading that crippled record companies, but they have found new life in the past year on the Internet, mobile phones and DVDs, and are helping rescue the ailing music industry. Once considered nothing more than a costly marketing tool to help sell albums, videos by the likes of Madonna and Kanye West are now bringing in cash on their own as fans stream them by the millions while watching accompanying online...


Word of the Day
mallemaroking

This word is apparently from a confusion of two similar Dutch words: 'mallemerok,' a foolish woman, and 'mallemok,' a name for some persons among the crew of a whaling vessel.
