Mandy moore and dj am dating
" It wasn't until I had been to Las Palmas and heard this music that wouldn't let me stop dancing until the lights were on and the brooms were sweeping me off the dance floor, that I realized what exactly a real DJ was. Adam would go on to become one of my closest confidants in a big city full of fair-weather friends, he would always remain the one person I turned to no matter what the situation and no matter how many years had gone by.Any other DJ I would go on to see would pale in comparison to this great, great talent. Adam was the kind of warm soul that spread love and joy to everyone he knew and knew exactly what to say to you to cheer you up, even if it was nothing at all. He never stopped striving to be the best he could be.His last tweet and looking at his @ djam twitter page now looks like a monument to a fallen soldier in the culture war, which he was winning. AM made music fun again.”Mia Moretti, Katy Perry’s tour DJ:“I can remember when I met Adam like it was yesterday.I was interning at MTV in Santa Monica and they sent me down to the lobby to escort DJ AM up the elevator to my boss' office.When I first met Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM, at the Hollywood Hills home he shared with then-fiancée Nicole Richie, he had just slimmed down (with the help of gastric bypass surgery) from a peak weight of 326 pounds.“It all starts with shoes,” he told me at the time.It was 2004, and he looked impossibly trim in skinny jeans and a T-shirt from Undefeated, a sneaker store in Los Angeles “If there are a pair that I want really bad, I’ll make an outfit around them.” Then on to the accessories.I would later check him out in numerous clips on You Tube where I could see he was truly talented and was elevating the DJ game to new heights along with Travis Barker on the drums. He made it cool for the metal rockers to listen to hip-hop, the B-Boys to bang their heads, and the electro kids sing along to a ‘70s ballad.
He had one closet to Richie’s five, and in it kept his first suit, by Hugo Boss.
Guys have to pick the right three things: shoes, shirt and pants—that are going to represent you.” His wrist was tattooed with a Technics turntable logo. “To this generation, AM was our bridge between genres of music and culture that had not yet been brought together.” AM had battled drug addiction for much of his adult life, but when we met, he’d been sober for more than five years.
As recently as last month, he was working on an MTV reality show called Gone Too Far, in which he would help teens kick drugs. He was a great guy.”DJ AM’s Facebook page (with 4,875 friends) is still up and scores of fans and friends are typing their thoughts to ease the pain.
Although I didn't recognize him by name or face, as soon as we started talking I knew exactly who he was.
I can remember the excitement in my body when I put it together and exclaimed in only a way a dorky 18-year-old could, "You're the DJ at Las Palmas on Wednesdays!
At one point during the interview, he hauled out his Mac laptop to check his sneaker bids on e Bay.
