British TV presenter Alexa Chung DJs the party celebrating the lighting of the Burberry sign across the Manhattan skyline at The New York Palace Hotel on Thursday (May 28).
“[Burberry creative director Christopher Bailey] asked me to DJ and so I did because he’s great and he likes very much the same music as me,” the 25-year-old told me. “It’s easy; you just push a few buttons.”
Next month, It’s On With Alexa Chung will premiere on MTV as the successor to the trail-blazing TRL.
“June 15th we go live,” Alexa tells JustJared.com. “It’s live five days a week and it’s an hour long with celebrity guests, bands, and a Twitter format. I think the guests on the first episode will be Jack Black and Michael Cera.” (They’ll be promoting their new movie Year One, out June 19.)
