DMV Awards called off due to violence; Phil Collins retires; Paul Simon comes to D.C. in May

- A night that was supposed to be a celebration of the local hip-hop community descended into chaos and will likely prove to be a setback for the scene. The fifth annual DMV Awards at the Crystal City Hyatt were interrupted and eventually canceled due to multiple fights during an intermission. More than a dozen cop cars descended on the scene, and a handful of people were hospitalized. Not all awards were presented, but winners included Tabi Bonney (Best D.C. Male Rap), RA the MC (Best Female D.C. Rap), Gods'Illa (Album of the Year), Phil Ade (Mixtape of the Year) and Fat Trel (Breakout Artist of the Year).

- Someone needs to give Phil Collins a hug. The ex-Genesis drummer and '80s pop icon is quitting music due to health problems and also apologizes for all of his success.

- Pop royalty Paul Simon will come to D.C.'s DAR Constitution Hall on his upcoming tour in support of new album, "So Beautiful or So What." He will also play plenty of his classics, including “several songs that haven’t been performed live in many years." Tickets go on sale Friday at 11 a.m.

- The Post's Justin Moyer rounds up the damage control statements from some of pop music's biggest names -- including Beyonce, Usher and Mariah Carey -- who played concerts linked to the Gaddafi family.

First of all why is DMV even putting on a show for these people who act like wild animals??? The show should have been put on by the Zoo. The Dept. of Motor Vehicles should do what the do best and thats creating long lines selling lisc. plates. What will they do next...start selling groceries?? I know where not to buy my plates next time. I say boycott thr DMV!
