Last week was full of events, but one the highlights was the official after party for Rihanna, following her concert at Staples Center. Asics hosted the event at Drai's Hollywood, one of LA's hottest night clubs. If you haven't been there yet, you definitely need to experience this place atop the W Hollywood. The view is insane. The crowd was an eclectic mix of club-goers and die hard Rihanna fans...some of the peeps were even rocking the same haircut and style as RiRi. The vibe kind of reminded me of the time I was at Lady Gaga's Fame Ball after party, where fans dressed head to toe in Gaga-esque attire. Just as Gaga has become a pop phenomenon, Rihanna has proven she is an icon of our day. People were still buzzing about the performance where Ri and Eminem rocked the stage at Staples, performing their number one hit, "Love the Way You Lie."
Rihanna and her crew (including her boy, Matt Kemp, back up singers, dancers, musicians, etc.) took over two large VIP cabanas where they hung out and danced all night to the sounds of DJ Spider. The Drai's Hollywood staff presented Rihanna with a customized cake illustrating the cover of her album with an edgy rocker look. Celebs also came out to support, including Brody Jenner, Avril Lavigne, and one of the craziest MC's I know...Lil Jon. This guy ALWAYS knows how to get the party started. Cut to the highlight of the night: Lil' Jon hopping on the mic, performing late night, while pouring shots of Belvedere from the bottle right into random mouths....STAY CLASSY HOLLYWOOD.
