Gaga scores hat trick; Jon Bon dubbed ‘Icon’
MADRID, Spain » Lady Gaga won three prizes yesterday at this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards, claiming best female, song and pop honors, just a year after taking the plaudits for best new act.
Tens of thousands of music fans crowded two of the Spanish capital’s most iconic landmarks — Puerta de Alcala and Caja Magica — to hear performers including Jared Leto and Shakira.
Lady Gaga beamed her acceptance speech from Budapest, Hungary, where she was on tour.
Best new act went to KE$HA, while Justin Bieber won the best male artist award, Paramore the best alternative act, Katy Perry won best video for "California Gurls" and Eminem took the best hip-hop award.
The new MTV Global Icon award went to Jon Bon Jovi, who thrilled fans with a live performance of "Shot Through the Heart" and "You’re to Blame."
Anderson will press fur issue with Israelis
TEL AVIV, Israel » Former "Baywatch" star Pamela Anderson says she will try her powers of persuasion on an unlikely audience: ultra-Orthodox Jewish lawmakers.
Anderson, an honorary director of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is in Israel to participate in the local version of "Dancing with the Stars."
But she said yesterday that she also intends to speak about the issue of fur to Israeli religious leaders.
An anti-fur bill has been put on hold in Israel over concerns by ultra-Orthodox leaders that it could affect production of the characteristic fur hats worn by some men from Hassidic sects.
Anderson called Israel a "progressive" country because it had no fur farms, and said that it can serve as "an example for the rest of the world."
