Every day a multitude of stars wanders through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
U2 get a lot of credit for rising to prominence in the 1980s and still managing to be relevant in the 21st century. (Bruce Springsteen is often mentioned in the same sentence.) However, not enough people acknowledge Bon Jovi as a band who has managed to transcend their origins and become a massive institution. They dropped some of the biggest albums and singles in the hair metal era (namely Slippery When Wet and "You Give Love a Bad Name"), ran into some rough waters in the '90s (where they became mostly treacly balladeers) and then had an unlikely reinvention once the millennium turned over. They're now as much a classic rock band as anybody, and their country-inflected new batch of tunes The Circle debuted at the top of the Billboard album chart last week. This morning, they wore up early to play on "Today," and despite having more than three decades in the game, they still sound fresh (and frontman Jon Bon Jovi can still hit all the notes).
Bon Jovi weren't the only people in New York for a pre-Thanksgiving blitz, as Zac Efron visited "The Late Show with David Letterman" and "New Moon" star Ashley Greene dropped in on a Maxim party (celebrating her cover, of course). Click here for these pictures as well as the entire "Spotted!" archive, which features over 300 candid shots of stars like Britney Spears, Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Adam Lambert, Lady Gaga, Shakira, Katy Perry and Rihanna!
