Books before food (and any sort of comfortable life).
The fourth annual “NewNowNext” Award show premiered on Monday April 11, 2011 and took place this year at The Avalon, a popular club in Hollywood, California. Hosted by James Van Der Beek, the show celebrated “breakthrough” celebrities, pop culture, what’s hot, and what’s the next big thing. The show honored Lady Gaga, bestowing her with the “Always Next, Forever Now” award, presented by former recipients Paula Abdul and Perez Hilton. Although Gaga was not able to make the show, she sent her love via web video to all her fans and everyone at the award show.
Also performing live were Panic! At the Disco with “The Ballad of Mona Lisa,” Wynter Gordon (as her first TV performance) with “Dirty Talk,” Oh Land with “Sun of a Gun,” and Robyn with her new single “Call Your Girlfriend.”
The show featured various celebrity presenters including Adam Lambert, Carmen Electra, Joey McIntyre, A.J. McLean, Jonathan Knight, Brittany Snow, Aubrey O’Day, Keegan Allen, Torry DeVitto, RuPaul, George Kotsiopolous, Kim Coles, Lisa Lampanelli, Sara Rue, Gretchen Rossi, Lisa Vanderpump, Josh Kilmer-Purcell, and Brent Ridge. There were also special appearances by Johnny Weir, DJ and recording artist Neon Hitch, Jessica & Hunter, and Drew Droege.
