· A small after-party went down at the Beverly Hills Hotel's Bar Nineteen 12. The Sony Music Post Party honored the label's nominees, including Beyonce and Kings of Leon.
· Nicki Minaj recently was kicked out of The Dorchester, but the first-time Grammy nominee was better during her stay at the SLS Hotel, where she shacked up for the party-filled weekend, Celebrity-Gossip reported.
· Rihanna almost spent the Grammys holed up in her Montage Beverly Hills hotel room. The singer was dealing with some bad laryngitis and bronchitis, ContactMusic said. Luckily, she got better in time for her "Love the Way You Lie" and "What's My Name?" performances, and to wear that see-me-practically-naked Jean Paul Gaultier dress that had everyone talking.
