This past weekend there was a lot of celebration going on in New Orleans for the NBA All-Star Weekend, bringing in celebrities of all types from around the world to watch one of the most glorified sporting events in America. One of those celebs was none other than Pharrell Williams, who was invited to perform before the All-Star game between the East and West. The 20 minute performance was comprised of some of Pharrell's classic hits, as well as his newest single, "Happy". He brought out some friends for the performance as well - Diddy, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Chad Hugo, Nelly, and his now legendary hat came back with a new style. Check it out above!
There were many pre-Super Bowl parties that took place in New York City this past weekend leading up to the big game on Sunday night. One of the parties that took place on February 1 at Time Warner Cable Studios was for REVOLT TV which is owned by Sean “Diddy” Combs.
As part of the party, Drake performed songs from his album Nothing Was the Same as well as “We Made It” and “Trophies.” He also performed with rapper French Montana and Diddy who performed his own song “It’s All About the Benjamins.”
Some of the celebrity guests that attended the party included Funk Flex, Paul McCartney, Katie Couric, Mary J. Blige and Hayden Panettiere.
Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey
When: Dated on and off beginning in 1999, married in 2002, divorced in 2006.
Why They Split: Jessica reportedly chose partying over playing “Newlyweds.”
Even though Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson are both taken, we miss having new episodes of The Newlyweds every week, so we'd be totally down for Newlyweds, Round 2!

Rick Ross, dressed in his signature head to toe white threads, celebrated his 36th birthday at Club Amnesia in Miami over the weekend. The legendary rapper drew a swarm of fans along with some of the biggest names in hip hop including Dr. Dre, Diddy, Wiz Khalifa, Wale, and the LOX, amongst others. He was also joined by singer/producer Sean Garrett and former business manager and head of Poe Boy, E-Class. Guests enjoyed flowing bottles of Moet champage and, naturally, Ciroc Vodka (Diddy's brand), while listening to sets by DJ Camilo.
Speaking of, Diddy rolled up as expected with an entourage that included Cassie, his son Justin, and French Montana --the latest new artist to join Bad Boy Records. The highlight of the night was when Ross took to the stage for a live performance of his 'Holy Ghost' track which also features Diddy.

You would be surprised how many people go out on Monday nights in NYC. It's arguably the favorite night to go out for many New Yorkers. Most people might think: "don't these people have to work in the AM?" And yes most of them do. How people stay out till 4am and then go to work at 8am remains a mystery to me. Monday-Thursday nights are my favorite nights to go out in the city. The clubs on the weekends are filled with riff raff and amateurs, the streets are filled with puke and it's very likely you will see a random shoe (yes, just one shoe) on the ground. This past Monday I had dinner at Catch, the new EMM group venue in the meat packing and then went to the lounge upstairs.
Diddy is back on tour and he wants to party with you. He'll be celebrating Friday, April 22 at West Orange's new megaclub 4Sixty6.

Considering that Last Train to Paris, Diddy’s latest music endeavor, took nearly a year and a half to be released, as a part of a new trio named Dirty Money, he’s arrived with a propositional transit absolutely worth taking. Puff Daddy/Sean “Puffy” Combs/P. Diddy/Diddy has had quite some hits and quite some misses throughout his hard-earned longevity in mainstream music; but his collaborative efforts of late are in actuality pretty top notch, as the polished vocals presented are not nary of emotive statements alongside production numbers that command to be perceived as don’t mistake my kindness for weakness urban pop ear candy. His previous collection, 2006’s Press Play was a great start towards making hits that not only sounded great, but were of some avail (like the fantastic “Last Night” featuring Keyshia Cole). Last Train to Paris is undeniably superior with its showcase of experimental hip-hop that never translates as an ill-fated attempt at creating amalgamated tunes because of its usage of influential genres.
Ne-Yo got more than just a little support Sunday, Nov. 21, during his black carpet affair in Avalon Hollywood. The R&B singer and producer was joined by friends at his VEVO and Compound Entertainment sponsored show and after party. The Ne-Yo and Friends Party started off with some Moet and Chandon champagne and ended with some collaborative surprise performances.
Diddy came out to perform It’s All About the Benjamins and Mo Money Mo Problems. Even Jamie Foxx was pressured to join the stage. Ne-Yo’s band started playing She Got Her Own and it was all over for the actor. Ne-Yo also took pictures with fans during a Kelly Rowland performance and Keri Hilson fooled everyone. Acting quite sly and stating she was just there to enjoy, the singer popped out of her seat a moment later with microphone in hand to collaborate Knock You Down.
