Rap-Up was on the red carpet at Clive Davis’ Pre-GRAMMY Party in Beverly Hills tonight. We were positioned right next to the “Today” show before the entrance to the event. Nicole Scherzinger was a show stopper on the red carpet and Tyrese looked like he packed on the pounds. Wyclef Jean shaved his head and Mary J. rushed by reporters on her way in. Christina Aguilera snubbed everyone, including “Today.” Bow Wow and Ciara were both there, although he arrived way before her. Inside, he was spotted talking to Rihanna. Christina Aguilera, The Black Eyed Peas, Akon, Pink, Carrie Underwood, and Jennifer Hudson performed. Jennifer was the nicest of all the celebrities we spoke to and even Naomi Campbell took time to answer our questions.
UPDATE: Fantasia was supposed to be there, but was unable to attend at the last minute because her daughter became ill. Justin Timberlake was scheduled to perform, but didn’t because he was sick too. Surprisingly, Alicia Keys and Jamie Foxx were no shows.
