There is a chance that former N Sync front boy, turned solo superstar, Justin Timberlake might be hosting the 2009 Academy Awards. Now granted he did a great job of Saturday Night Live a couple of years ago (See video inside of the classic D**k in a Box sketch) but for real the Oscars? I am tempted to start a campaign to bring back Chris Rock who kicked it on stage back in 2005. Yeah bring back Chris.
The 5th-Annual Fashion Rocks concert seems to be trying to outshine last year’s already-extravagant show. With announced performers like Beyonce, Black Eyed Peas, Chris Brown, Fergie, Justin Timberlake, Lil’ Wayne, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, Rihanna and Kid Rock, the concert truly and “uniquely celebrates the intersection of two of the most sexy cultural paradigms: fashion and music,” according to Richard Beckman, president of Conde Nast Media Group, which produces the event. The Fashion Rocks concert will be held at Radio City Music Hall on September 5th, and all proceeds will go to the Stand Up to Cancer Campaign. With more performers to be announced and an already high standard set after last year, there’s quite a bit of buzz surrounding the event.
