Jenny McCarthy

Jenny McCarthy arrived at the ck one color Music Lounge this weekend during Lollapalooza in a gorgeous orange mini-dress (which she had purchased on her way), looking healthy and in great spirits. Having just moved back to her native Chicago, the beauty mentioned that she didn’t want to raise her son in LA and was glad to be back in the Windy City, as was her son. She mentioned that her boyfriend lives very close to her new home and she was incredibly happy with him and her current life in general, even though she mentioned that she’s constantly traveling back and forth between Chicago and LA and has been maintaining a crazy schedule. While having ck one color cosmetics applied by a makeup artist at the event, she was overheard saying that she had recently gotten into yoga and was feeling very at peace as a result saying she had “followed her heart” and it had led her to the right place. After the party, she headed home to get ready for the festival, mentioning that the bands were not really “her type of music,” making fun of her age and saying that she “prefers Pink Floyd and loves Ozzie Osbourne.”

Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Osbourne arrived to the ck one presents Rock the Vote Nights event at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago over the weekend looking healthier and happier than ever. The beaming Fashion Police correspondent was accompanied by her new beau Matthew Mosshart, who was content holding her purse and sneaking in kisses whenever he could. “He knew people were looking”, says an onlooker, “but he didn’t care… He just kept leaning in for some PDA“. The purple-haired starlet and her main squeeze sipped on Belvedere cocktails and took goofy pictures – enjoying themselves throughout the night. Later, when the other man in her life brother, Jack Osbourne, showed up she was overheard telling a friend that “he is pure inspiration to everyone around him” due to his ongoing battle with Multiple Sclerosis. The trio’s positive energy made onlookers gravitate towards them with Kelly happy to take photos with adoring fans.

Josh Henderson

Josh Henderson partied at the It’s So Miami Oasis with a close group of friends. The Dallas star was spotted challenging fans to a game of ping pong, getting very into it and celebrating each time he scored a point. His close friend and roommate, who joined him for the Lollapalooza festivities at the Hard Rock Hotel, was overheard saying, “Josh is VERY competitive. He has to win at everything, he plays a lot of sports in his free time and needs to be the best at everything he does.” But he usually is. After claiming his victory, he sat down with a group and munched on fries while enjoying DISARONNO cocktails, dancing and taking pictures with fans. He also picked up goodies from the Clearasil “Rock Your Skin” Lounge and shades from GUESS.

Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams was spotted getting a temporary tattoo at Lollapalooza’s Clearasil “Rock Your Skin” Lounge in the It’s So Miami Oasis. When a fan complimented the petite “Destiny’s Child” singer on her svelte figure, she was flattered, saying she didn’t work out regularly but was blessed with a high metabolism. She was overheard commenting, “I’m not claiming I don’t want to be skinny but I don’t try to be this skinny.” She went on to say that her metabolism shot up after her first tour with her former band, led by Beyonce Knowles, and hasn’t slowed down since. “The kids made fun of me and called me Olive Oil in school but I didn’t think I’d still be this lanky in my 30’s,” Williams was overheard saying. A few minutes later, the fun-loving star seemed confident in her own skin, showing off her sparkly, rainbow, leopard print piece of art and posing for pictures with guitars in the spirit of the festival which she said she was “so glad” to be enjoying rather than having to perform. At one point the star got so excited, she threw her hands in the air and said, “I love this thing! I’m wearing this to church on Sunday!” Later on, the singer visited the Rock The Vote Lounge where she was handed a white t-shirt. She looked down at the shirt and asked what the size was only to learn it was, of course, a small.

Ryan Cabrera

Destiny’s Child singer, Michelle Williams was seen greeting fellow crooner, Ryan Cabrera with squeals of excitement and a giant hug. Ryan shared the enthusiasm, introducing her to his friend and Chicago Restaurateur, Billy Dec. Billy was later overheard telling her that a boat architecture tour was the best way to see Chicago, saying, “if you like nerd things like me.” After his performance, he was relaxing with Belvedere cocktails in the VIP area when his pal, actor Michael Pena, walked in to greet him with a quizzical expression saying, “I thought you were performing?” The singer told him he had already finished his set jokingly saying, “but that’s okay – I’ll show up to your next movie an hour and a half late.” The buddies then joined Evan Ross in the It’s So Miami Oasis where Cabrera checked out SOUL by Ludacris headphones while Ross nabbed an Incredible Hulk New Era baseball cap.


Dev stopped by the ck one color Music Lounge before making her first appearance at Lollapalooza. She talked about her independent style, beauty secrets, favorite ck one products and her upcoming collaborations (those she wished to keep secret). Dev’s spending time in the studio post-Lollapalooza to record a new album. In between interviews, the proud mother was overheard bragging about Emilia’s “vampire teeth” (her first to come in) – “everything is weird with my child”. Dev was also gushing about fiancé Jimmy Gorecki – the couple still hasn’t set a wedding date. Dev claims she’s the one not ready, but she recently bought a wedding dress – cream chiffon with black embroidery.


At the It’s so Miami Oasis lounge at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago, B.o.B was spotted drinking DISARONNO cocktails with an entire entourage of childhood friends. “We all grew up together in Atlanta” the rapper told a bystander, “we need our own reality show” he joked. Later, when asked about how his love for Atlanta compares to other cities, he said “Chicago’s up there. Such a cool place. New York City on the otherhand, now that’s a place I can’t stand”. However, he was quick to add that the fans there are “some of the best in the world”. As B.o.B made his way through the lounge, he spotted Gossip Girl actress, Kaylee DeFer, who was dancing away with a Coors Light in her hand. The odd duo instantly hit it off — the rapper was overheard asking when the new season returns and if she’s been enjoying her time off. Kaylee seemed “flattered and caught off guard” said an onlooker. The two stars exchanged numbers and then headed in different directions to mingle and enjoy the party, with DeFer keeping close tabs on her new object of affection.

Zach Gilford

Chicago native and “Friday Night Lights” actor, Zach Gilford, was spotted at the It’s so Miami Oasis lounge at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago with his older fiancé, Kiele Sanchez and a group of friends over the weekend. The sweet actor was keeping tabs on his sexy bride-to-be and was even overheard telling a bystander that “he’s absolutely smitten”. The two drank DISARONNO cocktails and mingled with fellow celeb attendee Rose McGowan. The two actors instantly bonded over what musical acts were playing and even posed for a few pictures. Later, when Zach was asked to pose for photos at the Clearasil “Rock your Skin” Lounge he shyly said, “I’m an actor not a model — photogenic shots are not my thing!”, making the room full of women laugh out loud. Zach and his group snagged some Nico Lives watches and New Era hats on the way out, making sure to thank everyone. An onlooker even said out loud, “he is one of the most gracious celebrities I’ve ever met”.

Josh Hopkins

Who knew Josh Hopkins had hidden musical talents? The Cougar Town actor was overheard telling friends that he sings and plays the guitar at the It’s So Miami Oasis sponsored by Motorola Mobility, but hasn’t done it in while since he has been so busy with work this summer.

Aaron Paul

Aaron Paul and his fiancée Lauren Parsekian agreed on mostly everything at the It’s So Miami Oasis, except for their favorite baseball team, as she picked out a Mets cap from New Era and he was all about supporting LA. Why New York? She is a daddy’s girl and it’s his favorite team. They also picked up watches from Nico Live and phones from Motorola Mobility. The two joined Aaron’s sister after and headed down to the festival to see MA3. His favorite part abuot the festival? Dancing in the field. He told an onlooker that last year his fiancée and him got poured at and completely soaked. What’s next for Aaron? A dark season 5 of Breaking Bad and watching the Olympics.

Haley Reinhart

American Idol contestant, Haley Reinhart hasn’t lost touch of her roots. The singer was spotted outside of Lollapalooza’s It’s So Miami Oasis kissing her dad goodbye after he helped her pack up the family van, a beat up old conversion. They kissed goodbye as he told her he loved her and she asked if it was okay if she stayed behind to hang out with friends. He told her okay but to take care of them to which she responded, “of course, I’m going to get them right now to make sure they know where they’re going.” The singer picked up goodies from Blue Microphones earlier in the day.The schedule of the awesome performances are below:
