After the fight, it’s the after party. Following Floyd Mayweather, Jr.’s victory over Canelo Alvarez on Saturday, the stars turned up in Las Vegas with parties all over the Strip.
Ciara made a quick trip to the Prada store to grab a fresh pair of kicks before heading to The Bank at the Bellagio. The stylish singer, whose bags didn’t make it onto the plane, put up her dukes while sporting a “Lover Not a Fighter” sweatshirt.
The Ciroc was flowing freely as Diddy (who lost $1 million to Rick Ross in a dice game) hosted an after party at the Palms Pool, with guests including Rozay, Tyga, Bow Wow, and 2 Chainz, who was dressed in all white.
After his star-studded bash in New York, a tuxedo-clad Nas celebrated his actual 40th birthday at a pre-fight party with LL Cool J and Busta Rhymes before heading to TAO for the grand finale.
It was bound to happen. The catchphrase “You ain’t ’bout that life” has been turned into a street anthem courtesy of Rick Ross, French Montana, Meek Mill, and Diddy. The hip-hop crew boasts about their lavish lifestyle on the boisterous cut off the Self Made, Vol. 3 compilation, due Sept. 17.
Diddy and Jay Z joined forces to throw the biggest post-VMA celebration. Following Sunday’s show, the hip-hop moguls hosted an after-party at PhD at Dream Downtown in NYC with some of their famous friends.
The star-studded guest list included Beyoncé, Rihanna, Drake, Rita Ora, Timbaland, J. Cole, Cassie, The Weeknd, Pharrell, Kendrick Lamar, and Macklemore, just to name a few.
Fresh off his victorious night, Justin Timberlake brought along his wife Jessie Biel and *NSYNC members Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone.
The Ciroc, D’USSE, and Ace of Spades were flowing non-stop throughout the evening. With a bottle of his new Ciroc Amaretto in hand, Diddy got up on the DJ booth to make a toast to everyone who came out to support.
Check out all the photos from last night’s big bash.
Ciara stopped by Kim Kardashian’s mother Kris Jenner’s new talk show on the same day Diddy was playing co-host. The three bonded over being Scorpios and CiCi praised the Bad Boy mogul.
“When they asked me who I wanted to be like, I called myself Poprah, and it was a combination of Diddy and Oprah,” she told him. “You are such an inspiration to me and I honestly can’t find all the words to say it, but seriously you mean so much to me as a young artist coming up and to our generation and to our culture.”
He returned the praise. “This new CD is incredible,” he said of her latest self-titled album.
Diddy and Ciara also faced off in a stepping competition with their two teams. See how they did.
Hip-hop all-stars mingled with sports MVPs at the 2013 ESPY Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday. The Game, Snoop Dogg, and Nelly rubbed shoulders on the red carpet with athletes including Michael Phelps, Gabby Douglas, and Dwyane Wade.
Diddy brought his son Justin Combs and presented the Best Team award to LeBron James and the Miami Heat, while “SNL” comedian Jay Pharoah drew laughs with his impersonation of Jay-Z as a sports agent.
Game caught up with Reggie Bush backstage. “Two very distinguished gentlemen. Ladies…. you may cream now,” the Compton MC told his followers.
Jeremih is taking his career to the next level with some help from Diddy. The R&B singer has hired the Bad Boy mogul as his manager.
“As of two months ago, P. Diddy and James Cruz actually took over my management,” Jeremih told Rap-Up TV at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards. “I’m out here doing a lot more work now.”
He was honored that Puff wanted to work with him. “I means a lot to me as an artist, as a writer. For Puff to acknowledge my talent and my gift, it’s a good thing.”
Diddy will also serve as executive producer of Jeremih’s upcoming album Thumpy Johnson, due in early 2014. “What I make is kind of like drugs for your ears,” he explained. “It’s definitely for the trunk, it’s definitely for the streets. It’s definitely for everybody. It’s a lot of thump for your trunk and just crack music for the streets.”
So far, the album features French Montana, Busta Rhymes, Diddy, and Lil Wayne, who appears on the lead single “All the Time.”
The Lonely Island takes control of your mind—and the dance floor—in the bizarre and hilarious video for “Go Kindergarten.” Diddy brings Paul Rudd to the club where the comedic rap trio and pop star Robyn command clubgoers to do whatever they say, including eating garbage, making your butt flat, and umm, whipping your dick out (ladies, too). Puff plays it cool, drawing a nude portrait, eating a banana, and teaching math to a kindergartener.
The Wack Album is out today featuring Solange, Kendrick Lamar, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, T-Pain, and more.
