NOT SO SILENT NIGHT
Lady Gaga! Kelly Clarkson! LMFAO! Foster the People! Demi Lovato! David Guetta! Pitbull! Odds are you like at least three of those pop stars, but all (and more!) will be performing at Z100’s annual Jingle Ball, tonight at Madison Square Garden. Personally, we’re most anticipating the first two: In the case of the former, a year of meat dresses and giant eggs have overshadowed one of the best records of 2011, and while the latter’s collaboration with Jason Aldean might have earned her a CMA trophy, it also kept her recent work off the radar of hipper demographics. Both will be worth sitting through Foster the People, plus however much you have to shell out for tickets.
