The popularity of celebrities can sometimes be short-lived. Just ask Will Smith.
But amid all the ups and downs of the entertainment industry, Travis Barker’s promising level continues to rise.
In fact, for a short period of time over the past week, the Fontana high school graduate may have been the most famous musician on the planet.
First, the multi-tattoo drummer teamed up with HER and Lenny Kravitz for a hot version of “Are You Gonna Go My Way” at the Grammy Awards on April 3 in Las Vegas.
Then Barker and his fiancée, Kourtney Kardashian, got married secretly (unofficially?) The next morning, and when the surprising news came out later, social media exploded.
On April 6, Barker posted some photos on Facebook and said in his typical way summarized, “What’s up in Vegas” with a red-hearted emoji.
Kardashian was more expressive on her Facebook page, saying: “Once upon a time in a remote, remote place (Las Vegas) at 2am, after an epic night and a bit of teasing, a queen and king her handsome went to the only one. opened the hat with an Elvis and got married (without license). Practice makes it perfect. ”
So Barker and Kardashian had their big moment in the spotlight, but the public fascination with their relationship will surely continue – mainly because they will play prominent roles in the upcoming Hulu series “The Kardashians”, i which begins on April 14th.
Already, a promo for the series has shown that Kourtney and Travis want to have a baby.
It is certainly true that Barker (who is not extremely talkative but does not hide his strong admiration for Kardashian) has always been in the media spotlight because of his wild personal life.
He was on another reality show, “Meet the Barkers,” with his then-wife Shanna Moakler in 2005-2006.
In his 2015 autobiography, “Can I Say,” 46-year-old Barker recounted the horrific plane crash that nearly killed him in 2008, and the book also took a detailed look at his early life by grew up in Fontana.
However, there is no doubt that Barker’s extraordinary talent as a drummer (not to mention being a record producer and owner of a successful clothing company) are very much worthy of the appreciation he has received for more than two decades.
In addition to his years of providing excellent rhythms for the multi-platinum pop-punk band, blink-182, he has been helpful in helping other artists like Machine Gun Kelly to achieve success. He has also worked with numerous hip hop and rock artists.
In fact, a week before his appearance at the Grammys, Barker was collaborating with Sheila E. on a star group at the Academy Awards.
However, he is careful to choose his friends wisely. On Twitter two months ago, he said, “Protect yourself from toxic energy and people at all times,” and in December, he posted another message: “Social media, internet, your phone = ALL BAD.”
In the coming weeks, viewers will discover how well Barker is managing to stand firm amid Kardashian chaos.
At the moment, the couple may not be legally married yet, but whenever Kourtney asks, “Will you go my own way?”, Travis will surely follow.
