MIAMI BEACH, Fla. _ Joe Jonas, Kim Kardashian, Usher and a bevy of supermodels are making the party rounds in South Beach this week, with Art Basel Miami Beach gatherings drawing celebrities, art collectors and fashionistas from around the globe.
Both MTV and VH1 are hosting Basel bashes Friday night. And earlier this week, Beyonce’s little sister Solange Knowles was the making the music as she sang at an after party for a private watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen dinner Wednesday hosted by actor Jason Alexander where guests included “Into the Woods” actress Emily Blunt and Victoria’s Secret models Karolina Kurkova and Adriana Lima. Kardashian stepped out at the Paper magazine party Wednesday wearing a black crop top and thigh-high split skirt _ far more than she did on the magazine’s talked-about cover that featured her nude backside. And Usher and Beastie Boys’ Mike D walked the red carpet Wednesday night at the ArtHaus VIP lounge at the Select Air Fair, one of at least 20 satellite art fairs surrounding Art Basel.
Perhaps the week’s most memorable celebrity moment: Miley Cyrus’ bizarre private performance Wednesday, where she smoked pot onstage, sang a duet with a topless woman and sang an original song she said she was inspired to write after a cat spoke to her while she was sleeping.
