Sponsored by Belvedere Vodka for the night,  about 500 people attending the mansion on the hill of Beverly Hills, the road so narrow the LAPD closed the entrance and made attending celebs walked down the dark, dangerous, winding road to safety where shuttles, which were 90 minutes late picking people up at the start of the bash.

The ASCAP, Jeramine Dupri, Ocean’s 7 – minus MONICA (No show) MTV VMA event include musicians Usher, who did NOT walk the red carpet, Jesse McCartney, Anthony Hamilton, Miss Issa, TIONNE,  Flo Rida, Nelly, New Boyz in their sports attire, Johnnyh Gill,  Actors Kweisi Gharreau, Tristan Wilde, Evan Ross, Quinton Aaron, Shantie O’Neal,  Model Brie among other top models.
This was the first time I have attended a red carpet event with no spot lights on the the stars. The person in charge told me “Were relying on media TV lights to provide red carpet lighting.” That’s fine, however there were very little TV media and the few that had TV cameras turned their lights off, which explains why some of the celebs such as Usher walk past the dark red carpet area onto the sidewalk and into the house.

He was lucky we go any pictures at all. Jermaine Dupri, one of the party sponsors also escaped in the vast crowd, and if he hadn’t taken a phone call in the kitchen, where I spotted him, I not sure we would have his photo either. The food was good, the music was awesome, and so loud you could have danced on the dark road a mile down the hill. The VMA event honor ASCAP’s 2010 VMA nominees was fun once you got to the mansion. Leaving the media in the parking for more than an hour (some left) and treating us like gardeners or house servants doesn’t make the greatest impression. Even some of the celebs attending said as they waited and left the party, “No more mansion parties.”
By the way the group Ocean’s 7 includes Usher, Nelly Trey Songz (who was also a no show), Brian Michael Cox, Johnt Austin & Tyron Davis.
I was invited to another party, but since I caught a terrible cold walking down the dark road leading up to the mansion, I opted to pass.
