The CES showroom floor is full of surprises, but none were quite as exciting as the plethora of celebrities we bumped into on Day 1. Much of that is in great thanks to Monster, who is focused on new partnerships with brands and celebrities alike, including Diesel Jeans, Nick Cannon, and Xzibit.
With a little luck and the help of some nice PR folks, we managed to get video interviews with male supermodel Tyson Beckford, Joseph “Run” Simmons of Run-DMC, Sugar Ray Leonard, Nick Cannon (formerly of Nickelodeon and current Mariah Carey spouse), and Xzibit.
Every single one of them is pimping headphones, which makes sense considering that these artists and celebrities specialize in both music and fashion.
It’s become clear recently that headphones are more than just a tool to listen to music with on the go. The celebs we spoke with obviously understand this, and they also happen to be pretty down to earth, too.
Here are the video interviews for each. Enjoy!
