I showed up at Bagatelle last night to cover Nas‘ album release party for ‘Life Is Good’ on behalf of Crunk + Disorderly prepared for only one thing – unlimited Moët. As an Oklahoma girl who just relocated to New York City six weeks ago, I’ve never been to an industry party and the biggest celebrity I’ve ever been within ten feet of is Toby Keith. So I decided to go with an open mind, a fully charged phone, and a two drink maximum just to keep it classy.
I arrived exactly at 10:00, made it inside by 10:30, and was half-drunk by 10:45. Girls dressed like Kardashians stood at the entrance, smiling and holding trays of miniature bottles of Moët. Two drink maximum? Whoops. Yes I sure will take one, thank you miss. And yes I sure will take another. Y’all are so sweet.
Waiters buzzed around the room offering appetizers I’ve never seen before, but since I didn’t want to drink on an empty stomach (and rarely turn down a snack) I ate them anyway.
Everyone there seemed to know each other but people were surprisingly friendly, breaking into big smiles when I told them I was present on behalf of Crunk + Disorderly. “Really?” said one girl, motioning to her friend. “I love that blog!” I smiled and kept drinking.
Will Blue Ivy Carter make her first red carpet appearance draped in Versace like French Montana at Summer Jam at the ’12 BET Awards? I have already made my blood sacrifice to see that it happens. Now it’s your turn.
It has been confirmed by the Associated Press that both King Bey and husband Jay-Z will attend this year’s BET Awards on Sunday. Now, the follow-up question: Will Beyonce use the awards ceremony to make her first televised performance since giving birth to the Sacred Lamb of Tribeca?

House Mother Kanye couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to give Jay-Z a gift for his first Father’s Day, purchasing his Words With Friends partner-nem a Lions & Sons’ Divora Skull in Yellow Gold with Red Topaz stones worth a whopping $34,000.
The radar detector you copped from the Fingerhut catalog for your pops would never make it inside the queen diva’s online shopping cart. Check out pictures of the gift after the jump.
