While the women may have held their own in the best-dressed department at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards, the men were a class apart. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, you certainly couldn’t ignore them. Case in point, Usher, whose electric cyan suit would’ve looked clownish on anyone else but him. Or LMFAO who strode around in their usual neanderthal style picks. The rest of the men were a lot more sedate in their choices. There was a fedora here and there — on Gavin DeGraw who looked like a ’40s gangster in his suit. Or Wiz Khalifa who paired his with a waistcoat, low-rise jeans and Amber Rose.
We spotted a bow-tie on Modern Family‘s Ty Burell, over a plaid shirt. Also wearing checks was Eric Benet, who picked the pattern for his suit. Justin Bieber kept it contemporary and youthful with a pair of cool kicks. Also contemporary, but in a completely different direction was the very fashionable Robin Thicke. All in all, we approve of how the men made sure the carpet was sartorially diverse. If only this could happen all the time. We have 12 picks in the gallery below, and they’re all your favorite male celebrities, so click away and enjoy!

Man, as beneficial as a good run on Dancing With the Stars can be for celebrities looking for a comeback the show is also quite hazardous to their health. Last night, Melissa Gilbert was rushed to the hospital after her performance and later tweeted that she was treated for “mild concussion and whiplash.” Amazingly, her paso doble with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, which earned a 22. That’s what separates stars from normal people, isn’t it? We would have been lying down and crying, like, right away.
And speaking of people not acting like normal people, Gavin DeGraw was a total hero last night. He carried Melissa down the stairs like a knight in shining armor. “I think anybody would have done it,” he told People. “She wasn’t feeling good. I think she hit her head, so I asked her if she wanted to lay down or something. So we decided maybe it’d be best to get her out of the skybox so I carried her. It was further than I thought! It dawned on me how far it was when my arms wouldn’t work anymore.”

Considering the man got hit by a taxi, it makes sense that Gavin DeGraw’s concerts have been canceled for the next couple weeks. It makes less sense that DeGraw plans to definitively join Train and Maroon 5 for a concert August 24. How do they know if that’s enough time for him to heal from a “concussion, broken nose and other injuries”? Even DeGraw tweeted yesterday, “Still sometimes seeing double. NYC looks overpopulated.” So, what, on August 24 his manager will just open the trapdoor under Gavin’s sick bed and drop him directly onto a piano bench? Actually, we would pay a lot money to see thatÃ¢â‚¬Â¦so we’re back on-board with the whole deadline idea!
DeGraw’s rep released a statement today confirming that the singer would need “additional time to recover” from his attack earlier this week, and would have to skip 8 concert dates that stretch from tomorrow night until the 22. According to US Weekly, new details about Gavin DeGraw’s attack suggest that that the musician was beat up at random. “These guys jumped him out of nowhere,” a source claim. “It’s weird because they didn’t take anything, I think they did it for sport.” This might be cruel, but we hope those attackers’ loved ones all had tickets to Gavin DeGraw concerts that they can longer use.
The circumstances surrounding Gavin DeGraw‘s brutal assault on Monday are still murky. The attack on him came as a shock to everyone, considering he was walking down East Village in New York and was suddenly jumped by a group of men. People are saying that Gavin and the assailants got into “some kind of argument” which led to the violence. What’s especially strange is that an injured DeGraw somehow walked for a mile after the incident, and ended up getting hit by a taxi. He was then taken to Bellevue Hospital by ambulance after someone rang 911.
He’s out of hospital now after being treated forÃ‚Â a broken nose, concussion and facial lacerations. And even though all may still not be well, Gavin tweeted his fans, writing, “Hi my friends. Honestly, I don’t remember much. I only know I can recover from here. Thank u all for your genuine concern. I love u guys.”Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Police are still trying to piece it all together. They’re also trying to determine if he was intoxicated or not, as he can’t remember much which is causing all the holes in how this happened
A police source has stated that the “assailants were unknown to victim” and DeGraw himself “can’t clearly recall” what they the argument was about. We do now now that the incident went downÃ‚Â close to a club he co-owns with his brother called the National Underground. They’re trying to find footage or sources that’ll help them track down who did this. There’s no excuse for this sort of violence and we sincerely wish him the best with his recovery.
Gavin DeGraw is in hospital currently after being brutally assaulted in New York City yesterday. He’s believed to be in stable condition at the Bellevue Hospital now after being attacked around 4.30 in the morning in Manhattan. Apparently, the singer was out with friends when a “pack of thugs” went at him on the street leaving him with a broken nose among other injuries. To make matters even worse, after he was viciously beaten, he was hit by a taxi when getting away. Ã‚Â There’s not much else to go on at the moment, but his people have released a statement saying, “Gavin DeGraw was assaulted … and was taken to the emergency room at Bellevue Hospital by ambulance. He is currently under observation. We have no additional information at this time.” What an awful story. Any leads on who did this to him? We’re wishing him a speedy recovery and will keep you posted on more details as and when they surface.
