Conventional wisdom holds that it’s hard to keep a party under wraps when it involves pyrotechnics, a Ferris wheel and Martin Scorsese’s two favorite go-to actors. Especially when you stick it on the Las Vegas Strip.
From what we’ve been able to piece together through online reports and grainy social-media pictures, though, it sounds like Nov. 3 saw Malaysian billionaire Jho Low threw himself a top-secret shindig inside a tent on the north end of the Strip and invited about 300 of his closest buddies.
You know, like Robert De Niro, Jamie Foxx, Britney Spears, Kanye West, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Pharrell Williams, Busta Rhymes, Chris Brown, Michael Phelps, Psy, Ludacris and Kanye ’n’ Kim.
According to an Instagram post from Kanye producer Million Dollar Mano, DiCaprio got onstage with Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest and Busta Rhymes to do the Phife Dawg verses on “Scenario,” in what would appear to be a remarkable case of white-boy hubris.
Celebs were allegedly required to wear only tuxedos or red dresses, the bar was carved from ice and Spears presented a $2.5 million Bugatti Veyron to Low on behalf of one of his friends, according to a website for the radio station KROQ in Los Angeles—though everyone who was there was reportedly asked to sign nondisclosure agreements about their involvement. Because apparently now conspicuous consumption has to be handled with the delicate care and consideration of a CIA operation.
The next time a rich guy wants to buy a fancy car and hang out with the ex-Spider-Man, expect it to go down in an underground bunker in a former Soviet state.
