Spotted: Alice Cooper Makes New York A Little More Metal

Every day a multitude of stars wanders through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

New York Fashion Week is almost complete, and the parade of stars wandering down red carpets, showcasing their own lines and attending runway shows is ending. Still, not all of the star-studded events in Manhattan this week have to do with couture. For example, Thursday night (February 18) saw a number of rock stars show up for a party at the Metropolitan Pavilion celebrating Guvera, the latest technological experiment to help try to save the music industry. Guvera, which launches in the U.S. on March 30, provides artists with an ad-supported outlet for music, video and licensing opportunities to fans. It’s a way to help try to satisfy music loves in an age of rampant digital piracy, and the party was attended by rockers the Donnas, rapper Jim Jones and, in a fantastically hardcore team-up, shock rock legend Alice Cooper and earnest Staind frontman Aaron Lewis. Every event should be lucky enough to have that much metal added to its lineup.

On the fashion front, Kate Moss and Pixie Geldof both attended Naoimi Campbell’s Fashion for Relief in London (which raised money for Haiti) while Brooklyn Decker, Kate Bosworth and Kellan Lutz all showed up to the Calvin Klein after party.
