Posted: 15 Feb 2005 15:30 Post subject: The 3121 Report: Grammy Weekend

-----

PRINCE is slowly but surely shortening my time here on this earth. Everytime I go to one of his parties, I think I lose at least a year of my life. My blood starts quickening, my heart starts racing, I lose sleep and I start to sweat profusely. Maybe that's due to the fact that I can't stop dancing and tearing up his fine floor with my Manolo's.

This weekend was no exception. Saturday's Pre-Grammy party was busting out at the seams with a new band I hear Prince has put together that simmers with the sound of old soul. Young vocalist Ashley and keboardist/vocalist Frank McComb mesmerized sultry John Mayer, Floetry and a slew of movie power house execs: Donald DeLine, Nina Jacobson, Walter Parkes & Laurie MacDonald, Mike Sheresky and Nick Reed. It was interesting to watch "been there, seen it, done it" execs discover a whole new level of coolness when partying at a rock star's "casa de royale". Faith Evans and her entourage took over the pool room while Macy Gray, Jessica Simpson and Nikka Costa lounged in the richly dressed gazebo by the pool. Paris Hilton crashed the party just in time to see Prince perform with the band as John Legend, Mekhi Pfieffer, Goapele, Ani DiFranco, Jay Leno, Patti LaBelle, and Babyface, Will.I.Am from the BEP's and Pras cheered on.

Goodness! And that was just Saturday! I had no idea that my connection with a personal friend in the Prince camp would garner me a second invite to Sunday's party!

The Post Grammy party at "3121" received guests with a funky new song by the same title bumping in the background while beautiful girls passed out trays of chocolates as guests walked in.

The grand entrance was no preparation for what was to come. Let's preface it with saying I would gladly give up another year of my life if I could re-capture the moment that sparked Maceo Parker's band conjuring up Prince on keyboard and guitar trading off with Alicia Keys, on James Brown "Make it Funky" and it was.... until Stevie Wonder came on stage and gave everyone on the floor a refresher course on the true meaning of funk and soul -- Prince, Stevie, Maceo, Alicia and Matthew McConaughey on congas????!!!! Penelope Cruz, Salma Hayek, Mia Maestro, ?uestlove from the Roots, Malcom J Warner, Elijah Wood all had the opportunity to witness history in the making.

Unfortunately, the gates to the front door closed before the rest of the guests could get in:
Usher, Goapele, Mos Def, Q-Tip, Beyonce & Jay-Z, Faith Evans, Mekhi Pfieffer, Eddie Murphy, Wesley Snipes, Arsenio Hall, Jaime Foxx, Lawrence Fishburne, Gwen and Gavin, Shakira, John Mayer and Ricky Martin all missed out on "3121 xperience".

As the song goes, "3121.. u can come if u want 2 .. but u can never leave" ...

Well I finally did, at 7:30 am. May my epitaph read: "3121 killed me".

"3121" seems to be the name of a new joint by Prince. I think the whole party thing which has been going on lately might as well be another brilliant marketing effort by Prince. Big names will be talking about Prince's spectacular parties, the mysterious group he has just banded and the "funky joint" which will surely "beat the s*** out of everyone". Bravo Prince!

Well, I guess he didn't have the flu. Oh yeah, MJ's the one with the "flu". lol
But seriously, did Matthew Mcconaughey move in with them? Seems he's at all these parties. Hmmmm, that would explain the "look" in the pictures from Clive's party. stoned
