So the other day I saw this tweet that Roger Ebert tweeted and I replied back to him asking him what he thought about a today’s female pop stars handling the very rowdy situation at Altamont. Well, I was really hoping to hear back from Roger. But I haven’t yet. So I thought […]

I’ve always wondered how celebrity blogger Perez Hilton throws a pre-Lolla party, so last Thursday we headed to the Hard Rock Hotel to join other fans for a late-night adventure of live rock, pop, dance and hip hop in downtown Chicago.
