Eminem and Rihanna to Perform at the MTV Movie Awards

The MTV Movie Awards are taking place this Sunday, April 13, and a new performance announcement has been made today: we can expect an unforgettable performance by Eminem and Rihanna this year. The duo is about to head out for their co-headlining summer stadium tour to take place in August, but before then, they will be making a stop at MTV. The frequent collaborators will be making their first televised performance of their single, “The Monster.” The night will also include fantastic performances by Ellie Goulding, Zedd and Twenty One Pilots. Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum will also be making an appearance to accept their awards, the Generation Award and the Trailblazer Award, respectively.

Eminem and Rihanna are no strangers to collaborating on hits together, some of which have included “Love the Way You Lie” and “Numb.” The duo’s six-date concert tour titled The Monster Tour will hit three cities in August, starting in LA. The tour will move on from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena to East Rutherford, NJ, and then come to an end in Detroit, MI.

The MTV Movie Awards will be hosted by Conan O’Brien live from the Nokia Theater at L.A. Live on Sunday, April 13 at 9PM.

Downtown LA – The Los Angeles Film Festival is back for its 19th year. Following the heels of the Sundance Film Festival, South by Southwest Film Festival and Cannes Film Festival, there is a lot of excitement surrounding the films to be seen in Southern California this year. The festival kicked off with some pre-festival excitement on June 12th with the pre-screening of much awaited “Man of Steel.” The next night, however, was the official opening night of the festival where they debuted “I’m So Excited” by Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar. Tonight the festival continues on with 11 screenings, the first one starting at 7:10 PM and the last one starting at 10:00 PM.

What sort of things do you have to look forward to these next 10 days? While the movies are still the main attraction, there has also been a particular emphasis on providing out-of-the-theater events that add to attendees’ movie experience. These include conversations and panels with actors, directors and writers. The festival is also offering a great opportunity for families with kids to enjoy the big film culture through Family Day. Family Day is an event free to the public that will be celebrated with activities the entire family can enjoy thanks to their sponsors at Hasbro Studios. This fun day of family-friendly adventure will conclude with the world premiere screening of “My Little Pony Equestria Girls.” Family Day will take place Saturday, June 15 at the Nokia Plaza at L.A. Live from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

While most of the screenings will be taking place at L.A. Live’s Regal Cinema, there will also be screenings at the LA County Museum of Art (LACMA), JW Marriot – ION Rooftop Bar, GRAMMY Museum and Grand Performances and Arts Brookfield at FIGat7th Plaza. Starting Thursday, June 13th, the festival will run until Sunday, June 23rd. For more details about the festival and the schedule, visit their website at
