Yes, Simon, there is life after MTV. One of the most popular VJs of the '90s, Simon Rex found a comfortable level of B-list fame among the young and rich party crowd in the 2000s, landing roles in TV series and several Scary Movie installments. His goofy likability and comedic charm kept him on the list, so to speak, and now, even at 40, he headlines clubs as his alter ego DJ Dirt Nasty. Rex laces humorously cheap dance music with lyrics about sex, drugs, and, actually, that's pretty much it. Celebrating the release of "Polluted," on which he guest raps alongside TJR, Dirt Nasty descends upon Ten Nightclub in Newport tonight. Prepare yourself for some serious ridiculousness.
