How’s it going everyone!? What a week it has been for me! I got to co-host the Daily 1o on E! TWO days in a row, attend the premiere of When In Rome, and to top off the week, I went to the 1st Annual Data Awards which paid tribute to the art of DJ’ing. The event was hosted by Will.I.am and boasted performances by Kelis, Kelly Rowland, and the Black Eyed Peas. It was held at the legendary Hollywood Palladium, which has amazing art deco architecture, and has hosted musical greats like Frank Sinatra, Nirvana, Madonna and Barbara Streisand over the years. Drew Seeley and I went to the event with my roomie Becky and her good friend Jessie. As we made our way in, we were greeted by our
first ever paparazzi.
He was asking Drew all sorts of questions and I just smiled and stayed close. What a funny little world I’ve entered into. The pap was super cool and never once made us feel uncomfortable, its just so weird that he was following US! I walked the green carpet and ran into HSM hottie Monique Coleman and her good friend Jason Williams. Mo and I wore matching liquid leggings, she must’ve been going for the same rock n roll look I was 😉
Inside, cabanas framed the stage and there was a VIP area upstairs where all the celebs hung out. I ran into Aubrey O’day, whom I interviewed for E! News a while back and gave her a hug. She’s so sweet and looked fab. We mainly hung out upstairs with Mo, Jason and Naturi Naughton from FAME. We danced, sipped on drinks and caught up. I spotted Chad Michael Murry behind us and realized that Drew and he shared a common bond with the Cinderella movies. I thought it would be funny to have a picture in between the two as a sort of Cinderella sandwich. I asked Chad, he obliged, but not very happily. It was very loud and maybe I’m misinterpreting his body language. I’m pretty sure he had no idea that Drew replaced him in a better version of his movie, or maybe he did, and that’s why he was fussy. That may sound bratty, but of course I’m biased 😉 HA! Thanks Chad! Also spotted in VIP, 90210’s Matt Lanter. I heard his 90210 cast mate and my girl crush, Jessica Lowndes was there as well, but sadly, I didn’t see her.
We had to end the night early as I had to wake up at 5am for E! News Now. We managed to see Kelis perform before we left and she was great, even dressed like a creature from Avatar. As we exited Will.i.am was spinning tunes. Another fascinating Hollywood night.
