Jason Mraz to Make History with Performance in Myanmar

Jason Mraz will make history when he performs in Myanmar to raise awareness about human trafficking.

Mraz will headline a free outdoor concert at People’s Square in Yangon, at the base of Shwedagon Pagoda, on December 16.

This concert will make Mraz the first international artist to perform an open-air concert in the country.

The show will be hosted by MTV Exit as their way of raising awareness about human trafficking and exploitation. Local artists will also be performing at the show.

Mraz spoke of his upcoming historical show, saying:

“That’s pretty exciting and I’m going there with an enormous amount of gratitude and respect, and I hope we can actually make a difference. I hope it’s also a testament to the songs. I’ve always wanted my songs to be about healing and self-empowerment, and if this is the way that MTV is acknowledging that, then I am incredibly grateful.”

The show will be broadcast on Myanmar’s national television and on MTV’s international network in 2013.

Mraz hosted a similar concert last year in the Phillipines. Speaking of the issue at hand, Mraz said:

“I thought that this was something that was abolished when Abraham Lincoln singed the Emancipation Proclamation, but all it did was become hidden from our view. There was a recent estimate that there are about 27 million people enslaved on the planet, certainly due to hard economic times not just in the Western world, but certainly in third world countries. Humans as a commodity is a great way to run your business. So I signed on, lent my voice, lent my music to the cause.”

Myanmar has a newly elected government and President Thein Sein’s government is pushing towards a democracy. This Monday, President Barack Obama is scheduled to become the first sitting U.S. President to visit the country.

Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ex” Wants to Be Her VMA Date

So we still don’t know for sure who Taylor Swift is talking about in her new single “We Are Never Getting Back Together,” but her fake “ex-beau” from the music video thinks he should be her date to tomorrow night’s VMAs.

Actor/model Noah Hills plays that ex-boyfriend that she will “never ever ever” get back together with in her new music video and he REALLY wants to attend the VMAs. He wants to attend so much so that he trys to convince Taylor to take him via a video from MTV.

Hills says:

“Taylor, I’m sorry. I know you said never ever, never ever, never ever, but maybe I should come and hang out at the VMAs a little bit. I should be there for your performance at the VMAs and [to offer] moral support. I got nothin better to do so please invite me.”

Check out Noah’s plea after the jump!

Rihanna Responds to Marijuana Photo Controversy

Photos of Rihanna appearing to be rolling a blunt of weed at the Coachella music festival this past weekend have sparked criticism towards the R&B singer all over the Internet, but Rihanna has some words for those who have harsh feelings towards it.

Thursday afternoon MTV wrote on their Twitter account:

“Yikes. @Rihanna’s marijuana photos from Coachella spark controversy.”

Along with the tweet MTV posted the photos that were taken from Rihanna’s Instagram, drawing a response from Rihanna herself, tweeting:

“@MTV Yikes… @rihanna ran out of f***s to give.”

MTV has since deleted their tweet, however t story remains on their website.

Rihanna had some words for her fans who were concerned about the photo. On Tuesday she tweeted:

“I’m crazy, and I don’t pretend to be anything else.”

Well, what do you think of the photos?? Oh, and Happy 420!

Florence + The Machine Film ‘MTV Unplugged’ Episode

Last night Florence + The Machine filmed a small intimate concert for MTV’s Unplugged series!

The taping took place in New York City at the Lower East Side’s Angel Orensanz. I was one of the lucky few who got to be inside of this amazing event and I can’t even begin to explain what a great night it was. I think the best way to describe it would be magical! Now I’m gonna try and not give too much away because it was too great to ruin — you need to watch it for yourself when it airs!

First, the venue was gorgeous! Angel Orensanz was built as a synagogue in 1849. It is the oldest Reformed Synagogue in the U.S. The Angel Orensanz website describes the look as:

“Its distinctive neo-gothic look comes for the extremely open, inclusive vision of the German Reform Movement. Our architect Alexander Saeltzer borrowed extensively from the Cathedral of Cologne the Friederichwerdeschekirche in the Mitte in Berlin, and mostly from the Sistine Chapel in Rome.”

The setup for the evening had the stage lit up with candles and lights, making the whole venue look extremely classy and elegant — perfect for Florence!

Florence’s interaction with the audience between takes was great, even though she might not have thought so. Speaking to the audience in such a tiny, soft, humble manner, she went on to say how the singing part of her job is a piece of cake, but the speaking not-so-much. Well, I don’t think the audience thought so. I think that humbleness that  she brings makes everyone love her even more!

Joining Florence on stage for the night was her band, a church choir, and a string orchestra.

Florence sang songs off her first album, Lungs, as well as lots of new tracks off her latest release, Ceremonials. There were also a few songs not on either of those albums, as well as a duet of Johnny Cash’s and June Carter’s ”Jackson” sung with someone special to Florence, Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age. She sang 13 songs total.

Florence sounded better than I ever remember her sounding — which is hard to do, since she’s always amazing. Her voice is just indescribable and I had the chills the whole time!

In the audience watching and supporting Florence was Kanye West, who worked on a song with her.

As excited as everyone one in the audience to be there watching this awesome night, I don’t think anyone was as excited as Florence. She kept making comments as to how she couldn’t believe she was filming an MTV Unplugged episode and she seemed truly grateful! One of the many reasons we LOVE Florence!!!

This episode of MTV’s Unplugged will air sometime next year. I will keep you up-to-date because this is an episode you will not want to miss!!!
