This Week’s Gonzo – the Vaccines and Ellie Goulding have a visit with Alexa

So what’s on MTV Gonzo tonight? The Vaccines, the band you either like or cannot escape from, will be stopping by for a chat with Alexa. Also on the show will be Ellie Goulding, who will not only be talking with Alexa but will also perform a cover of Rihanna’s ‘Only Girl in the World’ (I didn’t see that one coming). American rapper Lupe Fiasco will no doubt be talking about his new Modest Mouse-sampling tune ‘The Show Goes On’ and will be fielding questions from the Gonzola.

Through the wonders of technology, Midwest alt-rock band Cage the Elephant will be filling us in what they’ve been up to since the release of their second album, ‘Thank You, Happy Birthday’, in January. In the weekly Director’s Cut feature, North London rapper Skepta walks us through his video for ‘Amnesia’. I guess it should go without saying that rappers tend to name-drop. Well, at least Skepta isn’t shy to do so, revealing, “Diddy invited me back to party at a pool with loads of girls and champagne!” If we were so lucky. New videos from the Strokes and Dr. Dre featuring Eminem round out the programme. It’s a good night to stay in.

MTV Gonzo airs tonight (Friday) at 7 PM on MTV Music, with a repeat at 8 PM on MTV Rocks.
