Over the weekend, music superstars flocked to Las Vegas and showed us how they (aka the rich and fabulous) do the Strip.
The Hip-Hop Royalty Way
After his sold-out show at The Pearl in the Palms, Jay-Z joined his wife Beyonce to celebrate the end of his tour and party into the morning. Joined by Young Jeezy (who was a special guest during Jay-Z's concert) and Larry Johnson of the Washington Redskins, the hip-hoptourage headed over to Tao in The Venetian. Co-owner Jason Strauss was excited to say that Tao's records were broken that night with 1,400 diners at the restaurant and 7,000 parties at the nightclub.
Jay-Z and company took over Tao's private room for dinner and Beyonce silenced the pregnancy rumors by drinking her husband's own Ace of Spades champagne.
After enjoying sushi, Kobe beef, and sea bass, the group headed over to the club where Jay-Z dominated multiple tables on the dance floor as he sang and danced to the music of DJ Vice.
An eyewitness said, "Beyonce let her husband shine, clearly having a blast herself, but staying a bit more low key as she sat on the banquette at the table. The Ace of Spades champagne flowed feely, and Jay-Z even autographed a huge bottle of the bubbly for the club. They stayed until just after 4 a.m, stopping on the way out to thank DJ Vice for killing it all night long."
But the dynamic duo wasn't done for the night just yet. Jay-Z and Beyonce played some blackjack at the high-roller lounge Mint, at the Palms, before retiring to one of their Fantasy Tower suites.
The Young Stud Way
That same night, Trey Songz (who opened for Jay-Z) headed over to Eve for a midnight performance. Fans were lined up outside Crystals, which holds Eva Longoria Parker's nightclub, in hopes of getting to see the sexy singer perform.
Once Trey took the stage the crowd went wild, throwing their hands in the air and singing along.
An eyewitness reported, "Trey hyped up everyone at Eve. He was having a great time and didn't hide it, and you could feel the excitement in the crowd. He clearly enjoyed being on the microphone and even said, ‘I'm having a special after-party in my room tonight, and I'm looking for a lucky lady to bring with me.' "
He then proceeded to select several super lucky female fans to join him and his friends in his VIP area where he celebrated the end of the tour with a cigar, over-sized champagne cake, and Ace of Spades champagne.
The Birthday Boy Way
Yet another R&B babe, Jay Sean also partied at Eve over the weekend, but instead of celebrating the end of a tour, he was there for his 27th birthday.
The British singer and 11 of his friends enjoyed dinner at Eva's steakhouse Beso where the birthday boy had Alaskan halibut and two pounds of lobster along with sharing sides of lobster mac and cheese, potato puree, mushrooms, and asparagus with his pals.
Jay then walked the red carpet in front of Eve where the fans went crazy. But that was nothing compared to the reaction of the crowd when he performed "Down" and "Do You Remember" at the club later that night.
The Eve servers then surprised Jay with an enormous red velvet birthday cake in the shape of his favorite Dolce & Gabbana sneakers. The cake weighed sixty-five pounds which included fourteen pounds of pure frosting! He also received Dom Perignon Rose champagne.
If I had to choose between the three different ways to party like an R&B/Rap star, I would hands down choose to party like Jay Sean. Fourteen pounds of frosting! That, my friends, is a dealbreaker.
