Just as with other lifestyle pursuits (fashion, food, music), travel has its trendsits hots and its nots. Lately it's become more and more apparent that what the American public is craving with regards to travel TV shows is culture shock. Just think about itthere's Andrew Zimmern gagging on durian, Jessica Simpson attempting obscure beauty regimens and the whole Ricky Gervais series "An idiot Aborad." Forget the adventures; it's all about the traveler's misadventures.
The latest show to pander to us will be on Syfy (weird thing #1), hosted by Motley Crue's Tommy Lee (weird thing #2) and featuring the drummer's "investigations" into cultures and societies (weird thing #3). Yep, this is officially weird.
There's no premiere date yet for what's to be called Culture Shock with Tommy Lee, but there is a tad more info on what to expect:
Changi Airport / Singapore / Airports / Celeb Travel / Tommy Lee / Vince Neil / → All Tags
Singapore’s Changi Airport is pulling out all the stops to make sure its customers don’t stray. From adding terminals to providing free entertainment, there seems to be no end to their schemes to stop us from flying through places like Dubai or Hong Kong instead.
Now they’ve got a "Smile Campaign" going to improve customer service within the airport (which doesn’t sound too original), and they’re also using a celebrity meet-and-greet idea to entice people to come.
Last week slightly-aged rockers Tommy Lee and Vince Neil from Mötley Crüe welcomed passengers at Terminal 2. Because there’s obviously, uh, a strong connection between Mötley Crüe and Singapore.

VMAs / Award Show Travel / Kid Rock / Tommy Lee / Rihanna / Britney Spears / Fall Out Boy / Kanye West / → All Tags
Just when you thought MTV's Video Music Awards couldn't get more ridiculous, this year's VMAs--in Vegas for the first time--came through big: Sarah Silverman cracked dirty jokes, Kid Rock and Tommy Lee scuffled and Rihanna scooped up two Moon Men. And, of course, Britney opened her "comeback" performance with the imminently classy line, "It's Britney, bitch!"
Holding the whole shebang at The Palms Casino Resort was a great move--where else but a hotel should Fall Out Boy smash up guitars after playing a set? Kanye West performed at the Palms' Hugh Hefner Sky Villa--and not on the main stage, much to his dismay. (Funny, Britney didn't have a problem performing there.)
Kid Rock's scuffle with Tommy Lee got him kicked out of the Palms, set off a Vegas wide police search, and earned him a misdemeanor battery. However, he didn't get a moon man for his performance, looks like he will have to wait until the 2008 MTV Movie Awards where he is sure to snag the award for "Best Fight".
According to Jaunted tipsters and commenters, Tommy Lee isn't buying in. He didn't get an invite.
The World, whose sales are by invitation only, is now 92 per cent reclaimed, according to Nakheel (via Emirates Today).
Nothing says "I love you and I want you back" like a man-made island, so Tommy Lee bought Pamela Anderson one off the coast of Dubai. Need further proof that Dubai is desperately trying to become the world's Las Vegas? While there are still plenty of cultural issues to sort out before Dubai is christened Sin City Middle East, having America's first couple of sex tapes purchase an island in one of the biggest vacation developments ever constructed isn't a bad start.
The World, where Tommy Lee reportedly purchased the man made island of Greece, consists of 300 man-made islands positioned to form the shape of the world map, lying 4km off the coast of Dubai. Measuring approximately 9 km in width by 7 km in length, the development covers over 9,340,000 million square feet and is visible to the naked eye from space--just like Vegas! The World will include a collection of homes, apartments, resorts, restaurants and retail amidst beaches, and boating. Heh, Tommy and Pam on a boat, isn't that how all this began?
