    Default B-52s Kate Pierson marries longtime girlfriend

    Love shack, baby! Kate Pierson of The B-52s marries her longtime love Monica Coleman in Hposted




    Kate Pierson, co-founder of the new wave party band The B-52s, has married her longtime lover Monica Coleman in Hawaii.


    The 67-year-old singer/songwriter took to her Facebook page on Tuesday to share photos of her and her new wife with the caption: ‘#itsofficial!’


    A series of snaps show the happy couple post-ceremony as they don chic wedding gowns with Pierson’s in pink with a elegant Victorian style.

    Selfie: The singer/songwriter took to her Facebook account to share photos of herself and her partner including this close-up selfie, which shows the ladies donning celebratory leis




    The ladies fanned out their dresses as they posed together on a palm tree laden lawn.


    Both women were coated in celebratory leis, affirming that the ceremony took on a Hawaiian theme.


    And in another photo, a close-up selfie, Pierson wears a floral headdress atop her characteristic fire red locks as the newlyweds touch cheeks.


    Other snaps shared over the weekend by the new wave songstress show her anticipation for the big day as she admired the natural beauty of the Hawaiian islands.

    A rep for Pierson told E! News: ‘The wedding was attended by the entire B-52s band, Sia Furler and husband Erik Anders Lang were the witnesses.
    ‘Sia performed the song she wrote for the couple “Crush Me With You Love” on Pierson's first solo album Guitars and Microphones and was accompanied by the famous Hawaii music group the Lim Family who serenaded the attendees during the event. Fred Schneider made the best man speech.’

    In 1978 The B-52s shot to underground stardom with their first hit ‘Rock Lobster,’ which landed them frequent gigs at New York’s infamous CBGB.
    After guitarist Ricky Wilson’s death in 1982, the other band members – Pierson, Fred Schneider, Cindy Wilson and Keith Strickland – continued making music and still do today.
    The remaining members of The B-52s are currently touring alongside 1980s new wavers The Psychedelic Furs with a string of concerts at the Hollywood Bowl this fall.

    Showing support: E! News reports that the remaining members of The B-52s were all in attendance at the wedding with Fred Schneider (far right) making the best man speech

    And after years of playing in a band, Pierson has begun making music on her own.
    The musician’s first solo record, Guitars And Microphones, was released earlier this year and is exclusively available at Barnes & Noble.
    Originally a keyboardist, bassist and vocalist for The B-52s, the album features Pierson picking up the guitar and serenading her partner Monica.

    yeah, did the band start out way earlier than I'd thought, or did she come to the biz a little later in life than the norm? 'Cause I would have thought a decade younger for that group of musicians.
    Always loved her voice.

    They've been around since the mid 70s, first charting in 79, so they are around a long time. I guess she was about 30 when they hit it big.

    Congrats!

    I' love the B-52's. My favorite album was Wild Planet. Quiche Lorraine, Devil in my Car, Strobe Light, Private Idaho, Give Me Back My Man, and of course Dirty Back Road!! tee hee.

    I always thought she and Keith Strickland were an item. At least I thought they were years ago and then I found out he was gay, too.

    Love Shack is super fun to karaoke to. I nailed it myself *buffs nails on lapel*

    I love her voice, didn't know she was gay either. Congrats to them.

    And she has aged really well too.
