Every day a multitude of stars wander 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.
After spending time working on other people’s music (including a titillating D’Angelo project that will hopefully see the light of day next year), Mark Ronson is back with a new band (called the Business Intl), a new album (the just-released Record Collection) and a new shade to his hair (shiny, shiny silver). He gathered his band together to celebrate the release of the album (as well as the success of his two singles “Bang Bang Bang” and “The Bike Song”) at Rough Trade West in London. It was an appropriate place for an album launch, as Ronson is a record junkie of the highest order, and Record Collection reflects that entirely. It has bits of britpop, hip-hop, glam rock, R&B, dance music and just about every variation in between. At the center of it is Ronson’s charming sense of fun, which makes the whole thing an incredibly thrilling ride of an album.
Ronson wasn’t the only star in front of the flashbulbs, as Jon Stewart made a rare appearance away from “The Daily Show” to pay a visit to “The Late Show With David Letterman,” while Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil signed copies of his new memoir “Tattoos and Tequila” at a Barnes and Noble in Los Angeles. Click here for these photos as well as the entire “Spotted” archive, which features over 500 candid shots of stars like Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Eminem, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, the Jonas Brothers, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Rihanna, Shakira and Justin Timberlake!
