The Chainsmokers Following Avicii’s Introduction

The Chainsmokers is an American DJ and production group that was created by Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. The duo originated in New York and has performed at many large scale events with artists, including Pharrell. The group would describe their style of music as a blended mixture of indie rock, dance music, hip hop, and pop.

This past Sunday, The Chainsmokers was accompanied by Halsey during the Billboard Music Awards to honor the dear Avicii. Avicii was a Swedish DJ and producer who has inspired many artists today. The Chainsmokers and Halsey educated many viewers at Las Vegas’ Grand Garden about what type of person Avicii was and how his career and passion for his art has affected others in a number of ways. Following Avicii’s introduction, the award for the Top Hot 100 Song of 2018 was presented for the hit, “Despacito”.

The honor was emotional because Avicii committed suicide on April 20th at the age of 28. after struggling with a mental illness. Halsey went on to express how many loved Avicii and how his tragedy should always be a reminder of how much others support us no matter the struggles that we face internally. Louis Fonsi was able to accept his award on his behalf.

The Chainsmokers later dedicated their award for the Top Dance/Electronic act to Avicii. The duo believes that his influence has helped them become one of the best duo’s today. They thanked him for being a muse for their success and hoped that he has gained peace. Although Avicii is gone, he will never be forgotten due to the fact that Avicii has some unreleased music that may still be released according to the president of Geffen Records. He will continue to be an influence to many aspiring artists in the industry and his legacy will live on forever.

Sean Penn: From Actor To Author

Sean Penn, actor phenom turned novelist. Getting people to notice the actor has never been hard due to his share of drama on camera and off, as this only added to Sean Penn’s bad boy persona. But, his roster of critically acclaimed accomplishments on screen far outweigh any shortcoming the actor might have had in the past. Pushing for more achievements to add to his billing, never being satisfied with the status quo, he went and wrote a book, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”. As with any whisper’s of a book coming out from such a figure of our generation as he, comes criticism and speculation. The worst is the categorization, we as a nation have to put labels and categories on everything. We cannot just be. This is what Sean wants for his main character, to just accept him. Do not try to put Bob into some modern day scenario or philosophy.

“Bob Honey Just Do Stuff” is a satirical Americana. The main player is a middle-aged man who engages in such jobs and activities from septic tank salesman to assassinating the elderly. The story is told through the eyes of Pappy Pariah. He narrates the story Bob Honey’s life story and the digressions that ensue. It is up to the reader to decide whether Bob Honey is real or a figment of Pappy Pariahs imagination. Bob, a suspected international assassin that murders the elderly. Bob believes it is his purpose to murder in order to whittle down the population for society and the environment. Honey calls the President of the United States Mr. Landlord in a tirade written to the White House. For the rest, the book must be bought. Sean Penn at first denied being the author of the book, only narrating it when a portion of the book came out in audible format. He claimed it to be written by an author he met in a bar.
