Rolling Stone 40th partyLast night Snoop Dogg stepped up at one of many Rolling Stone 40th Anniversary parties at the Hard Rock Hotel. (Incubus and the Bravery kicked it off last night. Today there’s a RS sponsored celebrity poker tourney, as well as an outdoor concert with Linkin Park, and a late-night blowout at the Joint with Kanye West.) The Hard Rock also houses a club called Body English. That’s where Snoop held his afterparty. On the balcony, Britney Spears drank, smoked butts, and looked extremely hot. (The word at the Palms hotel, where the VMA’s are going down on Sunday, is that Britney’s show-opening routine will feature a slew of aerialists.)
The S.S. headed over to the Palms for a performance by current RS cover star Kanye West, that went down in one of the ridiculous suites in the Playboy wing. When we got there, we ran into the Linkin Park dudes — Joe Hahn, Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington — who were standing idly in the casino.
