(SL) – It’s time once again for Ludacris to roll out his annual Labor Day Weekend and take over the city of Atlanta. The four-day event features live performances, golf and bowling tournaments, a foundation dinner and brunch, and a celebrity basketball game.

LudaDay weekend seeks to raise money for local charities in the Atlanta area. The foundation reportedly raised $200,000 in 2014.

Mr. Bridges got things started with his celebrity bowling tournament at Bowlmor in North Atlanta. Usher, Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union, David Banner and Teddy Riley were among the attendees.

VMAs Ready For Star Studded Night

(SL) – MTV is gearing up for what’s being dubbed one of the most star studded VMA’s in history.  Show producers are promising a night of unforgettable music and moments. Should be an evening full of foolishness with Miley Cyrus set to take on hosting duties. The girl is not afraid to let loose. I expect to see a lot of twerking and crotch grabbing and if she really wants to make it complete…bring the foam finger!

Nicki Minaj will open the show and performances are scheduled from Justin Bieber, The Weekend, Twenty One Pilots, Demi Lovato, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Pharrell Williams, Tori Kelly and A$AP Rocky.

Nominee Taylor Swift will premiere her video for “Wildest Dreams” and Kanye West will be presented with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, the day after what would have been the pop icon’s 57th birthday.

Let’s see who interrupts him for kicks! Show starts at 9/8c on MTV. Some of the top nominees include Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran.
