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.
The nation of France has given the world some of the most amazing cinema in the history of the medium care of the work of directors like Jean-Luc Godard, Francois Truffaut, Claude Chabrol, Louis Malle, Alain Resnais, Luc Besson and Jean-Pierre Jeunet. But that’s not to say that they don’t enjoy penis baseball, sweat suit cocktails, wave runner stunts and stun gun obstacle courses, which is why the fans came out in full force to the premiere of “Jackass 3D” at the Cinema Gaumont Opera in Paris. Crew frontman Johnny Knoxville glad-handed and signed autographs with the adoring fans who gathered at the theater, as did co-star Bam Margera and film director Jeff Tremaine. Sure, “Elevator to the Gallows” is a classic bit of moody New Wave noir, but does it have the poo cocktail in 3-D?
Knoxville wasn’t the only star out in the streets, as B.o.B rocked the house in a performance at the GQ Gentleman’s Ball at the Edison Ballroom in New York City and Rihanna signed copies of her new book at a Barnes & Noble in New York City. 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, Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, the Jonas Brothers, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Madonna, Katy Perry, Adam Lambert and Eminem!
