If Nicki believes NYE superstitions, she’ll be having another successful year in 2013. She’s taking her “talents” to Las Vegas to ring in the new year.
According to EURWeb, Nicki will be at Pure nightclub as we ring in the new year. The club states that Nicki will be throwing a huge bash while doing the countdown at midnight and celebrating with all the partygoers. Oh, she’ll be making an estimated $5 million for the appearance.
Here’s the thing: Nicki probably won’t even be there all night. Although it states that she’s hosting the party, doors open at 8p and as we all know, celebrities don’t show up to anything when doors open. So the likelihood is that Nicki will arrive at 11p, party for an hour, do the countdown, collect the check and be out.
I’d wear a multi-color wig and some leggings and perform “Hickory Dickory Dock” for $1 million if Pure wants to save some money!
But seriously, that’s great for Nicki who will also be doing a concert in New York City on Christmas Day. That’s a working woman for you.
We’ve also heard that Beyonce will be performing in Vegas at the Wynn for $4 million dollars and Jay-Z will be doing a show in Brooklyn at the Barclay’s Center. It seems performing on NYE is one of the easier ways for celebs to make money.
What are your New Year’s Eve plans?
Well with an upcoming Super Bowl halftime show, you know Mrs. Carter had to do something else that would be pretty big to get the buzz going. Well, it looks like she’s done it.
According to Alex Pariente and Luis Alberto Sadalla, both executives of the Wynn-Encore Las Vegas, Beyone will be doing an exclusive New Year’s Eve concert at the Wynn for about 700 guests. Pariente says she agreed to do it because three years ago, she did two wonderful shows in Brazil for Sadalla, his family and other friends that were amazing.
According to the video, which was totally in Portugese, these guests are invited so at this point, there’s no need to get excited about buying tickets because that doesn’t appear to be an option. Further, Global Grind reports that she is going to be paid four million dollars for this one night only “spectacular.”
Have you ever heard the saying how you ring in the new year is the same way you’ll spend it? Well it looks like the Carters will be working hard and making money because while it looks like Bey will be in Las Vegas, her husband Jay-Z will be performing with Coldplay in Brooklyn at the Barclay’s Center.
Check the video below for confirmation (its at the 9:50 mark and if you don’t believe me, open that Google Translate and work it on out)!
The joys of Twitter: you can vent as much as you want…and then erase all the tweets. Fortunately, most people will either get a screenshot or a at least get a transcript of what was said. Ice-T, you are not exempt from that, my brother.
Saturday morning hit with Ice-T having to see pictures of his wife, Coco, wrapped in arms with another man named AP9 while she was in Las Vegas. Coco was the first to address the pictures but kept it very light by saying, “Woke up to people in a panic about some pics,please guys I’m happily married,sometimes fans & friends take silly pics. Its harmless. #RELAX”
Well, her fans may have relaxed but her husband certainly didn’t take too well to the pictures. As soon as he was able to calm down a minute to type, he gave us the following tweets:
Coco’s in Vegas. She has given me her explanation of the pics on the net from her first weeks out there with some dude. She said he knew someone in the crew from our show and would pop up where ever they would go. He also said he knew me.. I don’t know dude.
Regardless.. They would take Posed pics every time. Most of them disrespectful and in bad taste. She’s made me look.. And feel like sh-t.
I say this on Twitter because there’s no way to avoid the obvious misconduct of a married couple. That’s it. Any more questions ask @Cocosworld
Don’t get it twisted… I’m not happy about this sh-t.
He was absolutely clear on how he felt about the situation. After his tweets, it seems Coco got her mind right and re-thought her position (or was getting screamed at by her husband) because she later tweeted:
Ice is right,the pics I took with this man were in poor taste & I disrespected my husband however the pics were the only thing that happened.
I feel so sad,the bottom line is I love Ice & I can understand why he’s upset theres no excuse for my actions.I’m so sorry baby & to everyone
We’ve got to give Coco some serious side eye here. She’s been married to Ice for quite some time and should understand that pictures like that are completely inappropriate. I suppose the key word there is “should.” If she didn’t know that those types of “friendly” pictures should not be taken with another man, she might be a little off her rocker. But really, there’s a chance that Coco got “caught out there.”
Their reality show has really made people like Ice and Coco so the hope is that they can get through it. Oh, and Coco? Don’t be stupid all your life!
In case you may not have known, June is Black Music Month and people, we’re in a musical crisis: Where are today’s legends? Though many of us grew up on our parents’ music (Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Earth Wind & Fire, etc…) and some of us in the 80s were blessed with Michael, Whitney, New Edition and Prince, the 90s and beyond have presented a challenge. I’ve come up with a list; you may or may not agree, but we need to talk about this! Who is an all-around legend to you?
Today is Drake’s born day, and it looks like he had a great time celebrating his birthday at Tao in Vegas over the weekend.
Stepping out of his typical nerd-cool t-shirt and sweater attire, it’s clear the 25-year-old was feeling himself, rocking a blue Versace shirt and gold chain for the occasion. While purchasing 200 shots and bottles for the club, Drizzy told the crowd:
“I’m here for ya’ll tonight. If you want to drink, if you want to dance, if you want to party—ladies, if you want to Fawk, I’m ’bout whatever. I turned 25 and I just want to thank each and every one of you for coming out tonight. I appreciate it. Let’s have some fun.”
Who wouldn’t have fun sipping on free drinks with Drake in Sin City? Let’s hope he makes it a good one. Happy Birthday, Drizzy, you big cutie!
