2012 Oscars – Elton John’s Party Draws Celebs, Raises Millions

We tend to think of awards shows as excuses for famous people to get together in their finest duds and pat themselves on the back — and the same goes for the countless pre- and post-parties that go along with them.

Van Halen’s ‘A Different Kind of Truth’ Debuts at Number Two

He’s just a gigolo, and everywhere he goes, David Lee Roth ain’t got no chart-topping Van Halen records. Despite an impressive 187,000 copies sold, the band’s new album ‘A Different Kind of Truth‘ was kept from the top spot in its first week by Adele‘s unstoppable ’21,’ which enjoyed a huge Grammy-week bounce, moving nearly a quarter of a million units in its 50th week on the chart.

New Van Halen Songs To Debut on Tonight’s ‘CSI’

The last time Van Halen released a studio album with David Lee Roth, it would have seemed awfully strange, to say the least, for a major band to promote its new music by debuting tracks on a TV drama. But times have changed, and as part of the rollout plan for their new album ‘A Different Kind of Truth,’ VH is including clips from two new songs in this week’s episode of ‘CSI,‘ which airs tonight (Jan. 25) on CBS.
