The Paramount Keeps it Real with Carly Aquilino

Carly Aquilino, from the MTV hit series Girl Code will be coming to The Paramount on September 26th. Carly, originally from Commack, N.Y., has been described by audience members as “funny” and by her father as “a huge mistake” but one thing is for sure, she gives great advice on the sisterhood that all women share. 

When you are looking for a potential roommate, be prepared with questions.

If you don’t know how to bond with your dad and sports aren't your thing.

Having a bad hair day? Don’t cover it up with a fedora.

Beer before liquor will make you sicker; liquor before beer you’re in the clear, right?

And if you had too many to drink, apologize in the morning because 90% of the time it won’t make sense.

You don't have to trust EVERYONE.

Sometimes going to a house party is way better than hosting one.

Always use birth control.

Girls might be just as disgusting as guys, but at least we can cover it up.

Carly Aquilino keeps it real 100% of the time, so see her live on September 26th, tickets are still available!

The Top 15 Most Shocking Moments On Stage

It’s difficult to make it big in the music industry, but even harder to stay relevant because it all comes down to the survival of the fittest…or maybe just the most outrageous. From Elvis’ gyrating hips to Miley Cyrus grinding on Robin Thicke, here are the top 15 most shocking moments on stage in music history:
  1. The Who drummer, Keith Moon, was replaced by a fan after passing out on stage
  2. Axl Rose stopped midway into a song, jumped into the audience and beat up a fan
  3. Jim Morrison was arrested on stage during The Doors 1967 performance in New Haven, CT
  4. Jimi Hendrix set his guitar on fire during the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967
  5. Fergie peed her pants and later confessed, “I had a few drinks before going onstage, but I didn't think to go to the bathroom.”
  6. Beyoncé getting pulled off stage by a crazed fan during a concert in Brazil
  7. Ozzy Osbourne bit a bat’s head off during a live concert; to his defense he thought it was a fake bat, but we all know what they say about assuming…  
  8. Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction” during the Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show…we aren’t buying that it wasn’t planned. 
  9. Ashlee Simpson lip syncing on SNL; she panicked and broke out in a strange jig which was embarrassing to watch.
  10. Christina Aguilera/ Britney Spears/ Madonna kiss during the 2003 VMAs
  11. Akon threw a 15-year-old fan onto another spectator who was later diagnosed with a concussion
  12. Yo- I’m really happy for you and I’m gonna let you finish reading, but Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swifts’ speech during the 2009 VMAs led to a very awkward moment.
  13. Alice Cooper threw a live chicken into the audience. He thought chickens could fly…they can’t.
  14. Sinead O’Connor ripped a photo of the pope on SNL
  15. Iggy Pop cut himself accidently and continued with the show
These are just a few of the crazy moments caught on stage, if there’s something you wish to see on the list let us know right here!
