Clippers Owner Steve Ballmer Loses It To Fergie’s “L.A.LOVE”

Dance like nobody’s watching, Steve

Steve Ballmer is the fiery, ballsy former CEO of Microsoft and current owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, but last night he was just a very exuberant fan in the front row. During last night’s game against the Lakers, which the Clippers won by 25, hometown favorite Fergie took to the court to perform her latest hit, “L.A.Love,” which also features and is produced by Los Angeles natives YG and DJ Mustard. While Fergie performed, some of the people surrounding Ballmer subtly showed their support for the Black Eyed Peas pop starlet, Ballmer decided to go all out. It appeared that he heard a song he liked and was reminded that he’s worth about 20 billion at the same time. That’s enough to make anybody go as berserk as ol’ Steve went last night.

No matter how insane his antics appear to the public eye, we’re pretty sure the Clippers organization will take crazy dancing Steve over his psychotic racist predecessor any day.

2 Chainz takes to the late night posts to promote his debut album

2 Chainz‘ sophomore effort, Based On A T.R.U. Story II: Me Time, is out today, and if you haven’t had enough Tity Boi in the past few weeks, get ready for more. Not long after performing “Feds Watching” with the song’s featured artist and producer, Pharrell, Chainz took to the stage on Jimmy Kimmel’s outdoor stage to perform one of the more popular songs off the album, “Netflix”, which features Fergie. Whilst the BEP singer/rapper wasn’t on hand to perform the cut with Chainz, watch as he hits the ground running on the west coast, and builds hype for BOATS 2.

2 Chainz Connects With Fergie For “Netflix”

boats-2-cover 2 Chainz recruits Fergie for his latest track “Netflix.”

After his VMA peformance with Robin Thicke, Miley Cyrus and Kendrick Lamar premiering a new song, 2 Chainz goes to release his Fergie-assisted track “Netflix,” off his upcoming album B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time.

2 Chainz raps about making a movie, but definitely not the kind of movie you see on Netflix. It’s the type of movie that you got to the doctors the morning after to check yourself.

The instrumental is finessed by two great producers; Diplo and Honorable C-Note. The beat starts with a heavy electric guitar then fades to addictive bass with a crescendoing flute; pure genius.

Check out 2 Chainz’ “Netflix,” featuring Fergie above.

Fergie, Robert Duffy, Marc Jacobs, Hilary Swank, Rose McGowan, Cheyenne Jackson, Greg Louganis, Francisco Costa, Larry Boland, Sean Patterson, M·A·C AIDS Fund Chairman John Demsey, amfAR Founding Chairman Dr. Mathilde Krim, and amfAR Chairman Kenneth Cole were among those who came out to amfAR’s Inspiration Gala. The black-tie benefit, hosted by longtime dedicated amfAR supporters Cheyenne Jackson and Rose McGowan, celebrated men’s style with an Olympic sports-themed runway show and raised nearly $1 million for amfAR’s life-saving AIDS research programs.

Iconic recording artist and eight-time Grammy winner Fergie and Marc Jacobs International President Robert Duffy were honored at the event, each receiving the Piaget Award of Inspiration in recognition of their contributions to the fight against AIDS. Academy Award-winning actress Hilary Swank presented Mr. Duffy with his award, praising her longtime friend for “embodying what compassion is all about.”

Francisco Costa, the Women’s Creative Director of Calvin Klein, presented Fergie with her award. Upon accepting, Fergie gave a speech that was both humble and energetic, breaking out into song twice: once to belt out “We Are The Champions” in recognition of the night’s athletic theme, and again to spell out “a..m..f..A..R” to the tune of her chart-topping hit “Glamorous.” The event kicked off with a runway show of exclusive looks by the world’s leading menswear designers, featuring black-tie takes on athletic wear, inspired by the upcoming Olympic Games. Legendary Olympic medalist and AIDS activist Greg Louganis made a special appearance in the fashion show, modeling a Hugo Boss suit. Rugby star Ben Cohen also walked in the fashion show, alongside top male models. Bottega Veneta, Calvin Klein, Diesel, Dsquared2 Men’s, Giorgio Armani, Givenchy, Hugo Boss, Jean Paul Gaultier, Kenneth Cole, Lanvin, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Piaget, Ralph Lauren, Rick Owens, Rodrigo Otazu, SWAROVSKI CRYSTALLIZED, Thom Browne, Versace, Vivienne Westwood, and Y-3 were among the designers who donated looks for the runway show. The live auction, which was conducted with the help of Simon Doonan, raised $139,000. Fergie, one of the evening’s most active and generous bidders, walked away with a trip to Brazil for amfAR’s Sao Paulo event and a Marc Jacobs fashion package.

The Scissor Sisters closed out the night with a thrilling set that included songs from their new album Magic Hour, as well as their international #1 hit “I Don’t Feel Like Dancin.” The Inspiration Gala was presented by Title Sponsor M•A•C Viva Glam, Award of Inspiration Sponsor Piaget, Fashion Sponsor HUGO BOSS, Kohler Co., and B&B Italia. Cocktails were provided courtesy of GREY GOOSE Cherry Noir. In-Kind Sponsors for the event included Mandarin Oriental, New York, Jeff Leatham Design, and Coloredge New York + Los Angeles. The Inspiration Galas are a series of amfAR benefit events, produced by Josh Wood Productions, celebrating all aspects of men’s style. Previous events in the series have taken place in New York, Paris, Los Angeles, and São Paulo, raising more than $4 million for AIDS research.

Our reporter was on the red carpet and she spoke with Paul Epworth, Adele’s co-producer on “Rolling in the Deep.” He said, “I’ve worked in studios for 20 years. I’ve done live sound, I’ve done vocal coaching in the arts. I’ve sort of been a jack of all, master of none and I feel just lucky enough to be a part of Adele’s moment.”

The Source Magazine also caught up with Crystal Nicole, who wrote Rihanna’s smash “Only Girl (In the World).” This is what she had to say about penning the track: “I was in the studio with Stargate, and they were like we need something huge for Rihanna… and I was like ok, heres this chick.. she’s had all these hits..but what do most women want to feel.. and I feel like every woman wants to feel like their the only girl in the world.”
