Kickoff party sponsored by Belvedere Vodka
ASCAP, Jermaine Dupri & Ocean 7 MTV VMA

A cold dark one mile+ walk down from the mansion
Sponsored by Belvedere Vodka for the night, there were about 500 people attending the mansion party on the hills 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 included musicians Usher, who did NOT walk the red carpet, Jesse McCartney, Kandic Melonakos, actress/recording artist, Ayden Mayeri, actress, 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. 
The talented Anthony Hamilton talks to the media at MTV party in Bev. Hills
This was the first time I have attended a red carpet event with NO continuous spot lights on the red carpet for the stars. The person in charge told me "We're 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 camera lights 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. We were lucky we got any pictures at all.

Jermain Dupri, one of the party sponsors also escaped into 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 and Tyron Davis.
I was invited to another party, but since I caught a terrible cold chest walking down the dark road leading up to the mansion, I opted to pass. 

Airing live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, the 2010 VMAs promise to be the biggest and best in the show's history, featuring performances by Eminem (who will kick the show off), Kanye West, Drake, Justin Bieber, Paramore, B.o.B, Linkin Park, Florence and the Machine, Usher and in-house music provided by deadmau5 (and a handful of special guests). Plus, all of your favorite stars will be in the building, including Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, 30 Seconds to Mars, the casts of "Glee," "Jackass" and "Jersey Shore," Rick Ross, Selena Gomez and dozens more. They'll all be in the house celebrating the year in music and competing for the coveted Moonman, the only entertainment award designed after a a guy who has a crater named after him on the moon.
The action begins with a live red carpet (sorry, white carpet) celebration at 8 p.m. Eastern. MTV News' Sway and Tim Kash will be welcoming the stars, keeping track of the surprise arrivals and throwing to Nicki Minaj and for an early performance. You can keep track of everything live on MTV, stream it live here or stick around here for the live blog below.

Will Ferrell and the Other Guys Dethones Inception at Box Office

- 1hr 47min‎‎ - Rated PG-13‎‎ - Comedy‎ - Action movie

Director: Adam McKay (also cowrote script)- Cast: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Eva Mendes, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, Derek Jeter

Hollywood, CA - "The Other Guys," the cop buddy movie starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg from Sony Pictures beat "Inception" at the box office this weekend. The comedy pulled in $35.6 million and put to ease any concerns over Ferrell's box-office duds after the disaster that was "Land of the Lost." There's still enough interest surrounding "Inception" to drive the Warner Bros. movie to second place with $18.6 million. The "Step Up 3D" didn't make anyone want to dancetaking in only $15.5 million in its first weekend.

 If you think some cops are cocky or a little wierd, these guys define both terms in the new movie The Other Guys, now in a theater near you.

The Sony Pictures flick, starring Will Ferrell, and Mark Wahlberg, sped to the top of the daily boxoffice rankings with an around $13.2 million from its first day in movie theaters on Friday. and it will tickle your funny bone and then some. 

It is not your ordinary shootem' Up copy movie like Bruce Willis, who survives gun blasts and exposions, and steps on broken glass barefoot. No, this is a comedy about a day in the life of two mismatched New York Detectives trying to take a bite out of crime. There are so many stars and so many action scenes, it's unstoppable.

Terry Hoitz's past mistakes in the line of duty and Allen Gamble's reluctance to take risks have landed them the roles of the "Other Guys", disgraced New York City police detectives relegated to filling out paperwork for cocky hero cops Danson and Highsmith. The mismatched duo must look past their differences when they take on a high-profile investigation of shady capitalist David Ershon and attempt to fill the shoes of the notoriously reckless officers they idolize. Written by The Massie Twins
NYPD Detectives Christopher Danson and P.K. Highsmith (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson) are the nastiest and most beloved cops in New York City. They don't get tattoos - other men get tattoos of them. Two desks over and one back, sit Detectives Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell) and Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg). You've seen them in the background of photos of Danson and Highsmith, out of focus and eyes closed. 

They're not heroes - they're "the Other Guys." But every cop has his or her day and soon Gamble and Hoitz stumble into a seemingly innocuous case no other detective wants to touch that could turn into New York City's biggest crime. It's the opportunity of their lives, but do these guys have the right stuff? Written by Sony Pictures
