NEW YORK — Pop stars can be so temperamental. Just ask 55DSL, which had British singing sensation Lily Allen cancel a private performance meant to celebrate the opening of its Manhattan retail store—after sending out invites touting the exclusive concert.
Despite the last-minute snafu, the Italian streetwear brand managed to snag another hot English act, the Klaxons, for the April 12 event, which featured a party in the store, followed by a concert at Brooklyn's uber-trendy Studio B nightclub. (Revelers were transported to the concert in a fleet of yellow school buses.)

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
