That meant a crush of celebs around town that weekend, including Jennifer Lopez at Pure; Lady Gaga fleeing the Cosmo for the Palms when her room didn’t come with a private pool; Nikki Minaj wearing her Barbie-pink chicken-wing necklace onstage; and Tao going full-tilt for its thousandth night with Jay-Z and Dr. Dre and the presentation to Hov of a 15-liter bottle of Ace of Spades valued at $100,000.
