The 2007 MTV Video Music Awards: Vegas Baby!

Friday, August 10th, 2007

Well, it’s about time! MTV opens a new chapter in the wild and sexy history of the MTV Video Music Awards by bringing the show to Las Vegas. The very first VMA show was way back in 1984 (can you believe it?) and since then hot spots such as New York, Los Angeles and Miami have hosted the wildest awards show in the known universe. But it’s time to take it to the next level, which is what Las Vegas does best. The Palms Hotel and Resort will be “MTV Central” for the weekend of September 9th and we can’t think of a more appropriate place to go all the way. The VMA’s will air LIVE from The Pearl Theater at The Palms that Sunday evening with a show you just won’t believe. In fact, MTV is set to program a whole VMA weekend featuring not-to-be-missed events, appearances and sizzling performances culminating with the star-studded music extravaganza Sunday night. In addition, the show will ONLY air on September 9th in its original form. Hey, what happens between Vegas and MTV really will stay in Vegas! Justin Timberlake and Beyonce lead the list of nominees for the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards with seven apiece. Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable” was nominated for Video of the Year, along with Justin Timberlake’s “What Goes Around…Comes Around,” which featured actress Scarlett Johansson. The MS Las Vegas Real Estate crew will be on hand for some hard-core partying. We promise to be back in the office Monday morning, but we might come in a little late!

Latest MTV – VMA Update: 50 Cent, Akon and Soulja Boy have been added to the list of the show’s performers which include Kanye West, Rihanna, Foo Fighters, Fall Out Boy, Nelly Furtado, Timbaland, Chris Brown, Mark Ronson, T-Pain, Cee-Lo and Gym Class Heroes. Newly announced presenters include Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Shia LaBeouf and Rosario Dawson.

Modern Masters: The Guggenheim Hermitage Museum at The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas

Friday, August 10th, 2007

There’s no denying it, it’s still a bit of a stretch for some people to identify Las Vegas, Nevada with world-class culture and the Arts. But the fact is, Las Vegas is a city in transformation and our cultural offerings continue to increase in both quantity and quality. An excellent example is the debut of the Modern Masters Collection from the prestigious Guggenheim collection that has just opened for viewing at the Venetian Hotel and Resort. On display until April 27th of next year, The Guggenheim Hermitage Museum (yes, it’s in Las Vegas) is featuring 37 masterpieces from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City that represent significant milestones in modern painting. The show is divided into four thematic sections – portraiture, landscape, still life and genre. Featured artists include Monet, Van Gogh, Cezanne, Chagall, Kandinsky and of course Pablo Picasso. At MS Las Vegas Real Estate, one of our most important jobs is to educate our clients about the revolutionary changes in what is already the most dynamic city in the world. It’s a pleasure to work and live in such an exciting metropolitan environment. Come see for yourself!
