If you’re a bedroom DJ who wants to take it to the next level, try working your magic on LMFAO‘s club banger “La La La” in Pepsi’s Refresh Studio. Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas will review submissions and pick his favorite to create one official remix. One of our favorite remixes so far is by ENZ, a duo combining funky keys and fearless vocals. Think you can top it? Enter the Refresh Studio here.

VH1 is teaming up with Fab 5 Freddy, Amerie and Global Grind to live blog tonight’s VH1 Hip Hop Honors (9/8c). Hosted by Tracy Morgan (a.k.a. Scoopy “Dumplin Butts” Giles), this year’s show pays homage to Def Jam’s 25th anniversary. So it goes without saying the lineup will be hot! Performers include The Roots, Ludacris, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Rick Ross, Ja Rule, Gym Class Heroes, DMX, Redman, Method Man, ONYX, Public Enemy, Foxy Brown, Ashanti, Warren G, Kid Rock and others. Join our live blog party at 8/7c.
It’s not every day that you can chat with one of music’s biggest figures — especially when that figure is the “King of R&B” and had a very public and very turbulent 11-year marriage to Whitney Houston as well as bouts of substance abuse. But thanks to VH1 Mobile, now’s your chance. Watch Bobby Brown‘s episode of Behind the Music this Thursday, Sept. 24, at 10/9c, then live chat with Bobby himself after the show (12/11c)!
Users may download the app on their phone (AT&T phones, Sprint phones, BlackBerries from the BlackBerry App World store and iPhones from the iTunes App Store), then text in questions. Sample: What was it like performing with New Edition again at the BET Awards and who’s that woman on your arm?! You can also text TALK to 44686 and we’ll send you a download link. It will be a half hour moderated chat.

Ladies and gentlemen, consider the following question before booking your next cruise ship vacation. Would you like to dance to “La Cucaracha” with bloated tourists who haven’t seen sun or fun in years or would you prefer to rock the deck with real bands and the cute, pop-culture savvy VH1 set? Yeah. We thought so.
Book a cabin now on our VH1 Best Cruise Ever — a music fest at sea hosted by 3 Doors Down (pictured) and featuring Lifehouse and Shinedown. Special guests include Finger Eleven, Carolina Liar, SAFETYSUIT and others. (Listen to the bands that will be on board here.) We’ll sail together from Tampa to Grand Cayman, April 15-19. Read the official press release after the jump.
The three-day All Points West Festival appeared to take a hit when the Beastie Boys pulled out after Adam Yauch disclosed that he has parotid gland cancer. (Don’t freak out. It’s “very treatable.”) But all is not lost. In fact, some will be thrilled that Jay-Z is replacing the Beasties as the headliner on Friday, July 31.
As a coincidental bonus, MGMT is on the same bill and the two collaborated for the jigga man’s forthcoming album, Blueprint 3. Can we expect a sneak peek of their new song? We’re betting on it.
The festival runs from Friday, July 31 through Sunday, August 2 at New Jersey’s Liberty State Park. If you can’t attend, tune in this fall to Palladia to watch highlights from the festival — in high-def, no less.
Additional performers include the YeahYeahYeahs, Vampire Weekend, Tool, My Bloody Valentine, Gogol Bordello and theArctic Monkeys. Get the full lineup after the jump.
