Video: Avril Lavigne rocks private Tribeca show

Avril Lavigne hit Tribeca's P.C. Richard and Son Theater Wednesday for a private, raging, 30-minute iheartradio show that included jams "What the Hell," "Sk8r Boi," "Push," and "Smile."

We're totally digging the record, so it was fun to hear the new songs live!

Check out a clip of Lavigne performing "What the Hell," above.

Bill Clinton talks Libya, female presidents at Women in the World Conference

Bill Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, Charlie Rose, Diane Von Furstenberg, Christiane Amanpour and Tina Brown were just a handful of folks who rallied at day one of the 2011 Women In The World Conference at the Hudson Theater Thursday.

"I think it's very important that [the no-fly zone over Libya] not be a U.S.-led effort, because this comes from the people of Libya themselves," Clinton told Brown during their Q&A (top photo).

"It's not my fault!" Clinton added, when Brown commented that the U.S. has never had a female president.

"I don't know [who will be the first]," he said. "But I know there will be, and it'll be a good thing."

Willow Debuts '21st Century Girl' Video

Willow Smith has debuted the video for her second single, "21st Century Girl," and it's kind of amazing.

Set in the African desert and seemingly echoing her parents' outlook on globalization, we can't help but think of Rihanna as a 10-year-old when we watch Willow.

Check it out, above.

Ugg Reveals Fall Luxe Collection

Ugg Australia is poised to reveal their latest endeavor, the Ugg Collection: a 30-piece handbag and shoe line created entirely in Italy.

Poison Ivy had a chance to preview the collection during a showroom presentation Wednesday at RdV - and while images are top-secret - we can reveal that the color palette - full of deep olives, blacks and one leopard-spotted pony hair ankle boot we may have ordered - will be available this September, with prices ranging from $500 to $1,195.

Exclusive: The Green to Play New York's Webster Hall April 15

Hawaii Reggae masters The Green will be playing New York's Studio at Webster Hall April 15, Poison Ivy can reveal exclusively.

The band added the date after an epic two-night run at Irving Plaza last week.

Perhaps even more exciting is that we are giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky reader!

Miike Snow, A-Trak shake up Downtown Music Festival

"This is our last show before we go away to finish our record," says Miike Snow frontman Andrew Wyatt.

"So thank you for being with us."

The Swede rockers - who just completed a grueling 250-show international tour - sealed the stretch at Terminal 5's Downtown Music 5th year anniversary Festival Saturday, rocking a foggy, strobe-fueled set that made us pray no one in the audience was epileptic.

The performance included classics like "Black and Blue," "Silvia," and a cover of Vampire Weekend's "Kids Don't Stand a Chance," which had the second and third tiers of T5 shaking like a hipster at Forever 21.

Santigold took the stage for an uncomfortably brief set earlier in the night along with Major Lazer, and Friday night's guests included folks like A-Trak, White Denim and Art Brut.

Poison Ivy trekked to the Hudson Hotel for the Downtown Records after-party after, where we danced alongside cats like A-Trak and Dave 1 in a dubstep haze.

Check out a third-tier video of Santi's performance below, and photos courtesy of Hi Fi Cartel, above.
