The VMA’s might be over but you can take a look back at the exclusive Blackberry BBM party that took place during pre-VMA’s. The roster for this highly anticipated event included everyone from A-lister hotties like David Beckham and Ryan Phillippe, all the way to fist pumping Jersey Shore cast mates Pauly D and Vinny Guadagnino. While most events boast for having celebs in attendance, they fail to mention that the high profile attendees come and go quicker than you can BBM your friends with the news. This was not the case at “The BBM Lounge”…the majority of the celebs were at the Bel Air Mansion where the party took place before the event even began, until the very end when Ne-Yo performed for an intimate crowd of 300.
The private estate in which “The BBM Lounge” was held is very well known for holding some of the most exclusive and over the top soirees for the social elite in LA, including the Esquire Dinner which took place directly before the BBM Lounge doors officially opened. Dinner guests who broke bread (delicious Philippe Chow Bread) with mega stars such as Rihanna, Drake, Jermaine Dupri and Akon, were then escorted to “The BBM Lounge” on the lower part of the terrace where they enjoyed custom BlackBerry martinis and hors d’oeuvres, and were handed freshly charged BlackBerry batteries on silver platters…all while rubbing elbows with LA’s finest.
