Some Celebrities Went Ham Over The Holidays

January 2, 2013 at 6:21 PM | by | ()

It look like celebs have been living it up over the holidays. So much so, we’ve had to condense it into a mini digest. Here’s what’s been going on with the bold faced and the beautiful.

KimYe Are Expecting a Baybay:Some people announce that they’re expecting with a cute little sonogram or something more demure. Not Kanye West. Nope. He had to deliver the news to thousands of folks at Atlantic City’s Revel Resort in this endearing manner, by saying during his December 30th concert, “stop the music right there and make noise for my baby mama," smiling in the direction of his boo, Kim Kardashian. Yes, that’s exactly how one wants to be referred to when revealed we are carrying your child, Yeezy!

Is Rihanna The Right Way for the BTA?

Where: Barbados
November 12, 2012 at 9:06 PM | by | ()

Rihanna, who filmed an episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” during the summer where she took the media queen around her Barbados childhood home, signed a three-year contract with the Barbados Tourist Authority to be the official “face” of the Caribbean island. BTA chairman Adrian Elcock, made the announcement at the Hilton Barbados Hotel during the island’s annual Crop Over Festival that the ads would be released in time for the island’s winter high season.

The 24-year-old songstress, whose new album “Unapologetic” officially drops November 19th, returns to Barbados often, so it’s no wonder she was a choice for the BTA, despite her frequent, and often unpleasant mentions in the news with paramour Chris Brown, alcohol and drugs.

But it’s no secret she’s a proud Bajan and a fan of hip hotels like The House. We do wonderin this new role if she’ll promote The Crane, an island institution (and its oldest private hotel), which is about to go IPO in hopes of raising BDS$120 million. Seems a little stuffy for her taste, but she's also brought lucky fans for tea and an overnight at Sandy Lane, one of the most high falutin' resorts on the island, so one never knows.

We’ve seen a few of the photos that were supposedly “leaked” of the new ad campaign and we're divided in our opinion of them.

Chris Brown Sneaks Into, And Back Out Of, Rihanna's NYC Hotel

Just one day after multiple sources say they caught Rihanna and Chris Brown canoodling at Meatpacking District nightclub Griffin, the troubled pair seem to have elevated their relationship status from "it's complicated" to "we're sharing a hotel suite."

On Tuesday evening, photographers caught Brown sheepishly exiting the Gansevoort Park Avenue, which, as we know, is where Rihanna likes to stay whenever she's in NYC. While not exactly the most luxurious digs in the city, those dark interiors make it easy to sneak around unnoticed.

Or at least, that's probably what Chris Brown was hoping...

Rihanna Manages To Not Flood Her Suite At Mandarin Hyde Park

She's still keeping tight-lipped about all those Ashton Kutcher rumors swirling around the internet, but one thing we know for sure: RiRi found a nice place to call home in London during a recent press trip to promote her first-ever movie, Battleship.

The bleach blond singer-actress was photographed in a simmering olive green dress earlier in the day, posing with co-stars Brooklyn Decker and Taylor Kitsch. Then later, when paparazzi caught up with her in Knightsbridge, she looked like she was in a hurry to get back to her room inside the hotel—we're assuming it was to make sure she hadn't left the sinks running inside her room. Thankfully, all signs point to no.

Rihanna Floods The Savoy London (Rockstar), Apologizes (Not So Rockstar)

November 28, 2011 at 4:42 PM | by | ()

No, you wouldn't want it dripping here

So we already know that The Savoy London does an unexpected line in ironing boards, but we hope they also have plenty of umbrella-ella-ellas - because its latest celeb guest has apparently been setting the place awash.

No, not Matt Goss, 80s boyband English superstar-turned Vegas crooner who brought his Sin City show to the Savoy last month; no, we're talking Rihanna, who apparently left the taps running in her £2000-a-night suite after she performed on X Factor last Sunday.

And Rihanna's NYC Hotel Of Choice Is...

It's only been a few hours since we saw Rihanna perform at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ, but we miss her already. So here we are, dutifully browsing various tabloid stories and YouTube videos of hers, and what do we find? Photos of the red-haired star leaving her Manhattan hotel yesterday morning en route to the venue.

Many celebrities are often photographed coming and going from their hotels, but unless the caption makes it clear, the paparazzi (whether deliberately or unconsciously, we're not entirely sure) often omit all indicators of the hotel itself. Except in this case. Though there is a hint on the awning of a nearby building, we found a much more obvious clue on the carpet under Rihanna's feet.

Celebs Spent Time Hotel Hopping For the Grammys Last Night

February 14, 2011 at 1:03 PM | by | ()

J-Hud gets warmed up at the Beverly Hilton before her Aretha tribute.

Last night's Grammys gave us some great performances—Lady Gaga—and some missteps—Xtina almost falling on her face. Of course, it also means there was tons of hotel action, since the music industry swarmed Los Angeles for the awards ceremony and the bashes that come along with it.

· Celebs came out for Clive Davis and the Recording Academy's Pre-Grammy Gala at the Beverly Hilton. Cee Lo Green—before donning his peacock suit—R. Kelly, Glee's Matthew Morrison and Jennifer Hudson performed, while peeps like Katy Perry, John Mayer and Miley Cyrus also attended, according to MTV.

From Tea Time in London to Strippers in Vegas, Katy Perry Gets Around

September 20, 2010 at 9:54 AM | by | ()

On this Monday morning, we know there is nothing more important than updating you on the latest hotel adventures of Katy Perry. Last time we saw the pop singer, she was sipping on tea at the Claridge's Hotel in London.

Now we're happy to say that after that little scuffle between her fiancee, Russell Brand, and a paparazzo at LAX, Miz Perry made it safely to Vegas where she had bachelorette party thrown by none other than Rihanna (Apparently, she's a bridesmaid in the Brand/Perry nuptials.)

The girls made quite a nice tour of Las Vegas, arriving first to the Hard Rock Hotel for some swim fun and cabana time(Katy wore a veil attached to the bottom back of her bikini.) Sources inside the Hard Rock tell us:

Later, they caught a showing of the Cirque du Soleil show, KA at the MGM Grand but the "California Gurl" didn't stop there.

Who Did What and Where in This Week's Infamous Hotels

November 6, 2009 at 10:20 AM | by | ()

Strippers! Sex! Tell-All Interviews! Dead Bodies! Bad Rap Music Videos!

It always seems that no matter how much Celebrity Scoop we write about in a given week, there's also lots more that we didn't have time to get to. So from now on, every Friday we'll be rounding up the week's Infamous Hotels. This weekly list will include hotels that celebrities visited (and it made the news) but also hotels that really up the "Eww" factor. This can easily be done by have a decaying body in your hotel. Welcome to the dark side.

· St. Regis Atlanta: A stripper claims that she had "lots of sex" with actor Josh Duhamel in an $830-a-night suite here. The problem? He's married to Fergie of The Black-Eyed Peas. Both say the allegations are "absurd" but the pole-dancer passed two polygraph tests.
· The Gramercy Park Hotel: Rihanna has spoken out for the first-time about the horrible beating she suffered at the hands of Chris Brown last February. She did her sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer in a suite at the GPH.
· Gansevoort South: Someone keep Rick Ross away from Miami hotels for his rap videos. Here's the latest one, featuring Clipse.
· Radisson Paper Valley Hotel: Former hometown hero Brett Favre returned to Wisconsin with his new team, the Minnesota Vikings, and had to shack up in a so-so room in downtown Appleton like the rest of them.
· The Jane Hotel: Another reason to avoid hotels with SRO residents inside. A body at the Jane was left decaying for days, disrupting the um, sensory experience of one hotel guest.

Rihanna Dons a Bellhop's Cap in Paris and Berlin

September 30, 2009 at 10:01 AM | by | ()

We've always admired the fashion risks taken by Rihanna but we're not so sure we love her new hat. The singer was spotted outside the Hotel de Rome in Berlin yesterday wearing a hat that could have belonged to the bellhop.

Never matter, Rihanna left Berlin for Paris where she headed straight for the Four Seasons George V, even doing a photoshoot with some fans and her new hat.

But bellhops shouldn't expect any designer influence on their uniforms any time soon. Barb DeLollis at Hotel Check-In says that designer hotel uniforms are a thing of the past. She interviewed Kimpton Hotels CEO Mike Depatie who says that while Kimpton was leaning towards nicer staff unis in the flush days of the hospitality industry, nowadays they just use "stuff off the shelf."

That's a little sad. We actually really liked seeing designer uniforms on hotel employees. Oh well, there's always Rihanna!

Rihanna and Chris Brown's Trump NYC Stay is Way Shady

So, as we are all well aware by now, the Rihanna/Chris Brown relationship was a little bit tumultuous. And there was that whole February assault scandal, which Brown has since publicly apologized for — and we're not going to offer our opinion on that whole mess because, really, it's not our business.

But this gossip is more our thing: this weekend, the should-be-estranged couple was allegedly spotted coming and going from the same Manhattan hotel. According to PopEater (and the whole celeb gossip circuit, really), Chris is supposedly not allowed to see Rihanna (hello, restraining order) — but the two of them were both staying at the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Manhattan this past Friday. Smells like scandal.

And we say it smells like scandal because, like, really: of all the hotels in NYC, The Trump, you guys? The odds that both of you would pick that place over like, the Ritz-Carlton Central Park or something — kind of shady. The Trump, really?

Reviews at the Trump are so-so, with its biggest perks being the location and its crew of obviously-well-trained-to-deal-with-paps staffers.

The Empire Hotel is a Revolving Door of Celebrities

If the The Empire Hotel actually had a revolving door, we could say that the hotel is a revolving door of celebrities — literally — but even with a boring set of pull doors, celebrities keep on coming and going from this Midtown West hotel. And some of these recent celebs have actual talent (unlike The Kardashians.)

Orlando Jones is shacking up at the Empire in a $1,500-a-night suite while he does he stint on Broadway, starring in The Wiz. Also, Heidi Klum stayed at the hotel to attend a Victoria's Secret Beauty luncheon on the pooldeck. According to a source, she was "wonderful and smiley" but was a little tired (probably because she's pregnant, AGAIN) and talked about taking a cat nap in her suite.
