Hello, I registered here because I got this inside news and I just need to share with other Coldplay fans. Chris Martin and Missy Elliot will join Nelly Furtado in her VMA performance next month! Nelly Furtado will kick off her performance with All Good Things (Come to an End) and Chris will enter to sing the second part with her, then Chris leaves and she starts singing Do It with Missy Elliot.
"Troll sat alone on his seat of stone,
And munched and mumbled a bare old bone;
For many a year he had gnawed it near,
For meat was hard to come by.
Done by! Gum by!
In a cave in the hills he dwelt alone,
And meat was hard to come by.
Up came Tom with his big boots on.
Said he to Troll: 'Pray, what is yon?
For it looks like the shin o' my nuncle Tim,
As should be a-lyin' in graveyard.
This many a year has Tim been gone,
And I thought he were lyin' in graveyard.'
'My lad,' said Troll, 'this bone I stole.
But what be bones that lie in a hole?
Thy nuncle was dead as a lump o' lead,
Afore I found his shinbone.
He can spare a share for a poor old troll,
For he don't need his shinbone.'
Said Tom: 'I don't see why the likes o' thee
Without axin' leave should go makin' free
With the shank or the shin o' my father's kin;
So hand the old bone over!
Though dead he be, it belongs to he;
So hand the old bone over!'
'For a couple o' pins,' says Troll, and grins,
'I'll eat thee too, and gnaw thy shins.
A bit o' fresh meat will go down sweet!
I'll try my teeth on thee now.
Hee now! See now!
I'm tired o' gnawing old bones and skins;
I've a mind to dine on thee now.'
But just as he thought his dinner was caught,
He found his hands had hold of naught.
Before he could mind, Tom slipped behind
And gave him the boot to larn him.
Warn him! Darn him!
A bump o' the boot on the seat, Tom thought,
Would be the way to larn him.
But harder than stone is the flesh and bone
Of a troll that sits in the hills alone.
As well set your boot to the mountain's root,
For the seat of a troll don't feel it.
Peel it! Heal it!
Old Troll laughed, when he heard Tom groan,
And he knew his toes could feel it.
Tom's leg is game, since home he came,
And his bootless foot is lasting lame;
But Troll don't care, and he's still there
With the bone he boned from its owner.
Troll's old seat is still the same,
And the bone he boned from its owner!"
NEW YORK — Nelly Furtado, Gym Class Heroes and Common have been added to the list of performers at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.
Previously announced performers include Timbaland, Kanye West, Fall Out Boy, Chris Brown, Amy Winehouse, the Foo Fighters and Rihanna.
The 24th annual VMAs will air live from the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Sept. 9, with Timbaland as "maestro," in charge of creating several "show-stopping and unexpected artist collaborations."
Lil' Wayne, T-Pain, Cee-Lo and Daniel Merriweather have also been added to the lineup of performers, MTV said Monday in a statement. Presenters and additional performers will be announced at a later date.
Furtado, who sizzled up the charts last year with her comeback song, "Promiscuous," is nominated for female artist of the year, along with Winehouse, Beyonce, Fergie and Rihanna.
Gym Class Heroes are up for best group and best new artist.
The saddest kind of sad is the sad that tries not to be sad.
You know, when Sad tries to bite its lip and not cry and smile and go, “No, I’m happy for you”?
That’s when it’s really sad. http://couture-du-jour.blogspot.com
