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 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame takes it on the chin an awful lot, mostly because of outrage over who gets in versus who doesn’t and the stunning lack of representation from women and minorities. But when the dust clears, they do put on an awfully interesting induction show, which went down on Monday night (March 14) at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. The show brought together inductees like Tom Waits, Darlene Love, Dr. John and Neil Diamond for a celebration of their work and influence. But the big moment of the night belonged to Alice Cooper (who was inducted into the Hall) and Rob Zombie (who helped induct him). Zombie talked about Cooper’s influence not just on himself but on the greater rock world. “He invented the rock show,” Zombie said. “Before Alice Cooper, there was no rock show.” Later, the two shared the stage for an all-star spook jam on Cooper’s “School’s Out.”
They weren’t the only stars out and about, as Vanessa Hudgens watched the Los Angeles Lakers defeat the Orlando Magic at the Staples Center in L.A., while Justin Bieber celebrated the unveiling of his new wax statue at Madame Tussaud’s in London.
