MTV: 30 years of innovation and corporate rock'n'roll

Grumbled about by the left, hated by the American right, MTV has nevertheless redefined the way people relate to music

As any pub quiz specialist will know, the first video broadcast by MTV back in 1981 was Buggles's Video Killed the Radio Star. That first programme, prefaced with the ominously stiff announcement "Ladies and gentlemen, rock'n'roll" and played over footage of the Apollo 11 moon landing, was watched by just a few thousand people. Today, MTV is a global franchise, with numerous sister channels and offshoots, so broad in its outreach that it represents not so much a TV channel as the condition of popular culture.

Radio stars didn't immediately die with the inception of MTV – during the 1980s and 90s, the likes of Dire Straits, Sting, Madonna and later Nirvana survived and thrived in its medium. However, depressingly for some, it did redefine the way we related to popular music.

Elizabeth Making Feature Directorial Debut
Actress Shannon Elizabeth is preparing to step behind the camera and embark on her first feature film as a director.

The American Pie star has served as producer and director on a few small projects in recent years, but she's now ready to move into filmmaking - and already has one movie in development.

However, Elizabeth is refusing to reveal details about the film.

She tells WENN, "I have a bunch of things in various stages of development. I've directed a music video and shorts (short films) and stuff but (I'm working on) my first full length..."

And Elizabeth, who co-stars with Steve Guttenberg in new independent release A Novel Romance, insists it's just one of several deals she's currently working on as she throws herself back into her career following the 2005 breakdown of her marriage to actor Joseph Reitman.

She adds, "(I'm working on) something more along the fashion lines for a couple of them (projects). I like to try to stay busy and do different things to fulfil that creative outlet...

"My cousin and I are talking about putting a book together just about different knowledge we've picked up along the way."

Actress Elizabeth Finds Solace In Meditation

Actress Elizabeth Finds Solace In Meditation
Actress Shannon Elizabeth credits meditation with helping her to find inner peace following the breakdown of her 10-year marriage.

The American Pie star split from actor Joseph Reitman in 2005 and stepped away from the spotlight as she learned to adjust to life as a singleton.

She admits the relaxation technique has helped her to come to terms with the troubles in her personal life and is convinced it's helped her to become a better person.

She tells WENN, "I meditate. I've been working on myself a lot since my divorce, during the last four or five years. I've really been doing a lot of inner self-inspection and learning about energies and vibrations. I've become really spiritual. It's not religious, it's different. I'd much rather be working in my office until one in the morning than going out to a club or drinking or anything. I've always felt like maybe I'm just weird but it's always kind of been me...

"You kind of just start discovering who you are and what's important to you and what's important in life and in the overall scheme of things. I think I'm just in a different phase in my life."

Annie Duke on Divorce: Don’t Make Kids Pay for Parents’ Mistakes

Ethan Miller/Getty Celebrity Apprentice star Annie Duke is a single mom by label only. The 43-year-old is quick to point out to MomLogic that between her live-in boyfriend of four years Joe Reitman, an “extremely involved” ex-husband in Ben Duke and a nanny, she’s hardly going it alone.

“I have a relatively easy single parent life — we do support each other so much in our parenting and really do co-parent in every sense of the word,” she says of Ben. “When people ask me to speak about being a single mother, I often say I couldn’t even begin to speak upon those issues!” Emerging from their divorce unscathed is a source of pride for the one-time couple, who together are parents to Maud, 14, Leo, 11,  Lucy, 9, and Nell, 7. Annie adds,

“I wish that every divorced couple would remember this: You chose your partner, so take responsibility for that decision.

Elizabeth Finds Love On The Dancefloor
Sexy Shannon Elizabeth has been caught cheating with her dancing partner just days after revealing her teacher boyfriend was delighted with her dancefloor dude.

The American Pie star and Dancing With The Stars pin-up Derek Hough were caught on camera hugging, kissing and rolling around in the sand on a Malibu, California beach on Thursday as they prepared for next week's (beg21Apr08) dance-off on the hit U.S. talent show.

The romantic sunset moment comes just days after Elizabeth told In Touch magazine her boyfriend couldn't have been happier when she landed boyish blond 22-year-old Hough as her partner.

The unnamed beau initially feared the actress would be paired with dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who became a sex symbol when he partnered with Spice Girl Mel B last season.

Elizabeth says, "My boyfriend saw Derek walk through the door and it was Ok. He knows I've never dated a blond. Plus, Derek's 22 and I'm a few year's older.

Elizabeth, 34, is divorced from actor Joe Reitman.

Fans of American Pie star Shannon Elizabeth will be heartbroken at the news the Hollywood beauty has wed. Sexy Shannon tied the knot with her longtime lover Joseph D. Reitman last Saturday in Mexico. Although there is no confirmation on exactly where the twosome tied the knot, the 28-year-old actress did tell this month's In Style magazine that they were eyeing a small beachfront ceremony, possibly at Hotelito Desconocido, a resort south of Puerto Vallarta where they've vacationed previously. But she added, "We were worried we'd get bored. It's a place with no TVs, no phones, no anything." Reitman, 34, has appeared in TV shows Beverly Hills 90210 and Charmed, as well as movies Clueless and The Perfect Storm. He's also had bit parts in several of Elizabeth's movies.
