Hot Stars and Even Hotter Parties
February 14, 2005
It was pure musical magic under one roof as Alicia
Keys, Jamie Foxx and Kanye West joined together
for a pre-Grammy celebration Saturday night at
Clive Davis' bash. The legendary music mogul put
Foxx on stage with Baby Face and Mary J. Blige.
"That's the beauty of this thing," Foxx
insisted. "This party is about talent."
The party is also famous for introducing new acts,
such as Alicia Keys back in 2002. "You know,
I was wet behind the ears," Keys recalled
of her first performance at Clive's party. "I
still had a bottle in my mouth, but I rocked them
And from the pre-parties on Saturday night to
the big event on Sunday, you can bet the stars
weren't ready to stop there. Let's fast forward
to Sunday night, post-Grammys, where Nelly joined
stars like David Spade, Paris Hilton and Alyssa
Milano at Usher's party. "I'm going to go
party!" Nelly told us.
And Usher, who was nominated for eight Grammys,
told us, "It was a beautiful night. I recognize
the three I won, not the five I lost."
Our next stop was the ultra-sexy Sony/BMG party,
where Ricky Martin revealed to us he's getting
ready to tour again. "The concert will be
full of music and a lot of concerts," Martin
told us. "I can't wait to get back onstage."
Next up, we went to Kanye West's bash, which he
hosted with MSN, after taking home three Grammy
Awards. "I'm feeling elated and overjoyed,"
the rapper admitted. "I can't even describe
it. I can't even put it into words."
Our last stop was the Spin Magazine party hosted
by Wyclef Jean, who took the mic.
So from one end of Hollywood to the other, it
was certainly a night to dance and celebrate!
