Celebs didn’t have to worry about the weather at the Lollapalooza Music Festival since they had the ”It’s So Miami Oasis“ at the Hard Rock Hotel as their rock star sanctuary.
Aaron Paul and fiancé Lauren Parksekian, Rose McGowan, Josh Henderson, Kaylee De Fer, Ryan Cabrera, Michelle Williams, B.O.B., Michael Pena, Animal Planet, who hide out from the storms Saturday and picked up some New Era Caps, along with other notable offerings.
Aaron Paul sported his own New Era Yankee cap throughout the day’s festivities and when congratulated on his Emmy nomination we couldn’t help but notice the huge smile on Parsekian’s face, obviously a very supportive fiance. Aaron also mentioned that he starts shooting a new movie in a few weeks.
Michael Pena delighted the lounge with hitting the turntables and performing an impromptu DJ set. He picked up a White Sox New Era Cap that says “Chicago” across the front and mentioned, “It’s like I’m wearing my address on my head.”When she’s not shopping or testing beauty products, Evan Hosie writes gadget reviews for the site Popgadget.net
It’s one of the most revered musical festivals in the country, and this year again, Lollapalooza lived up to its hype.
Despite a massive storm on Saturday causing the site to evacuated for several hours (a first for the festival), the sun again took to the main stage in the sky on Sunday in Chicago, proving that this year was another one to remember.
And when the stars weren’t rocking out to their favorite bands, they could be found hanging out the Hard Rock Hotel, which played host to three great events: ck one color Music Lounge; It’s So Miami Oasis; and ck one presents Rock The Vote Nights.
Here’s some insider gossip from the series of parties….
Jenny McCarthy arrived at the ck one color Music Lounge this weekend during Lollapalooza in a gorgeous orange mini-dress (which she had purchased on her way), looking healthy and in great spirits. Having just moved back to her native Chicago, the beauty mentioned that she didn’t want to raise her son in LA and was glad to be back in the Windy City, as was her son. She mentioned that her boyfriend lives very close to her new home and she was incredibly happy with him and her current life in general, even though she mentioned that she’s constantly traveling back and forth between Chicago and LA and has been maintaining a crazy schedule. While having ck one color cosmetics applied by a makeup artist at the event, she was overheard saying that she had recently gotten into yoga and was feeling very at peace as a result saying she had “followed her heart” and it had led her to the right place. After the party, she headed home to get ready for the festival, mentioning that the bands were not really “her type of music,” making fun of her age and saying that she “prefers Pink Floyd and loves Ozzie Osbourne.”
Kelly Osbourne arrived to the ck one presents Rock the Vote Nights event at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago over the weekend looking healthier and happier than ever. The beaming Fashion Police correspondent was accompanied by her new beau Matthew Mosshart, who was content holding her purse and sneaking in kisses whenever he could. “He knew people were looking”, says an onlooker, “but he didn’t care… He just kept leaning in for some PDA”. The purple-haired starlet and her main squeeze sipped on Belvedere cocktails and took goofy pictures – enjoying themselves throughout the night. Later, when the other man in her life brother, Jack Osbourne, showed up she was overheard telling a friend that “he is pure inspiration to everyone around him” due to his ongoing battle with Multiple Sclerosis. The trio’s positive energy made onlookers gravitate towards them with Kelly happy to take photos with adoring fans.
Josh Henderson partied at the It’s So Miami Oasis with a close group of friends. The Dallas star was spotted challenging fans to a game of ping pong, getting very into it and celebrating each time he scored a point. His close friend and roommate, who joined him for the Lollapalooza festivities at the Hard Rock Hotel, was overheard saying, “Josh is VERY competitive. He has to win at everything, he plays a lot of sports in his free time and needs to be the best at everything he does.” But he usually is. After claiming his victory, he sat down with a group and munched on fries while enjoying DISARONNO cocktails, dancing and taking pictures with fans. He also picked up goodies from the Clearasil“Rock Your Skin” Lounge and shades from GUESS.
Michelle Williams was spotted getting a temporary tattoo at Lollapalooza’s Clearasil “Rock Your Skin” Lounge in the It’s So Miami Oasis. When a fan complimented the petite “Destiny’s Child” singer on her svelte figure, she was flattered, saying she didn’t work out regularly but was blessed with a high metabolism. She was overheard commenting, “I’m not claiming I don’t want to be skinny but I don’t try to be this skinny.” She went on to say that her metabolism shot up after her first tour with her former band, led by Beyonce Knowles, and hasn’t slowed down since. “The kids made fun of me and called me Olive Oil in school but I didn’t think I’d still be this lanky in my 30’s,” Williams was overheard saying. A few minutes later, the fun-loving star seemed confident in her own skin, showing off her sparkly, rainbow, leopard print piece of art and posing for pictures with guitars in the spirit of the festival which she said she was “so glad” to be enjoying rather than having to perform. At one point the star got so excited, she threw her hands in the air and said, “I love this thing! I’m wearing this to church on Sunday!” Later on, the singer visited the Rock The Vote Lounge where she was handed a white t-shirt. She looked down at the shirt and asked what the size was only to learn it was, of course, a small.
Destiny’s Child singer, Michelle Williams was seen greeting fellow crooner, Ryan Cabrera with squeals of excitement and a giant hug. Ryan shared the enthusiasm, introducing her to his friend and Chicago Restaurateur,Billy Dec. Billy was later overheard telling her that a boat architecture tour was the best way to see Chicago, saying, “if you like nerd things like me.” After his performance, he was relaxing with Belvedere cocktails in the VIP area when his pal, actor Michael Pena, walked in to greet him with a quizzical expression saying, “I thought you were performing?” The singer told him he had already finished his set jokingly saying, “but that’s okay – I’ll show up to your next movie an hour and a half late.” The buddies then joined Evan Ross in the It’s So Miami Oasis where Cabrera checked out SOUL by Ludacris headphones while Ross nabbed an Incredible HulkNew Era baseball cap.
