    Black Eyed Peas, Ludacris Kick Off World Tour

    Picking up where they left off last week at the Grammy Awards, the Black Eyed Peas kicked off their world tour at Atlanta's Philips Arena Thursday night, creating an over-the-top electronic-hip-hop-pop-rock'n'roll circus, costarring hometown hero Ludacris and party boys LMFAO. LMFAO took the stage first and immediately established the fact this was more of a party than a concert. "Where are all my alcoholics at?!" was met with a big cheer, despite the fact it wasn't even 8 P.M. The lighthearted, groove-happy duo serenaded the crowd via auto-tune, subbed Atlanta into "I'm in Miami, Bitch," and had back-up dancers that included kids bizarrely dressed up in Lego costumes. It was like if the Flaming Lips ran head first into the Beastie Boys of the future... at a party. IfLMFAO turned the room into a bash, Ludacris transformed it into a club.

    Perez Hilton Kicks Off U.S. Tour

    Perez Hilton helped put Lady Gaga and Mika on the map by featuring them in the "Listen to This" section of his popular site Perezhilton.com. So it was only a matter of time before America's celebrity blog princess became a de facto A&R man with his own label and a national tour. See a photo gallery of the show here. Thursday night at Atlanta's 1200-seat Variety Playhouse, said tour kicked offmuch like his fans would expect: The stage was flanked by shiny magenta curtains and a massive "Perez Hilton Presents" backdrop. A video screen played boppy tunes by the Ting Tings and Rihanna, until the house lights dimmed and the host bounded on stage, sporting perfectly messy hair and a tight-fitting turquoise tee that read "I'm Huge on Twitter." "Hi Atlanta! I hope you guys are drunk," Hilton said by way of greeting.
