The stars came out in droves at the 2012 NBA Baller Beats by XBOX 360 VMA Lounge, presented by Velodyne Acoustics benefitting VH1 Save The Music Foundation at the Ritz-Carlton Residences at LA LIVE on Thursday, September 6th.

As all were preparing for the VMA’s at the Staple Center, the 2012 NBA Baller Beats by XBOX 360 VMA Lounge was taking place at the Ritz Carlton Residences at LA LIVE. Celebrity guests came to support VH1’s Save the Music Foundation- such as AJ Mclean, Teenwolf’s Tyler Hoechlin who played Baller Beats basketball by XBOX. JLO’S Casper Smart stopped by the lounge and drank water, as partygoers learned that he was just starting a “Cleanse”, while The Far East Movement sipped on Voli Light Vodka and REFINE Mixed specialty cocktails.

The Gold Medal Olympians- Fab 5- Jordan Weiber, Kyla Ross, Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, and Aly Raisman were dressed to impress for the VMA red carpet, but could not stay long enough to get pampered in the LE POSH Salon Lounge. The girls all posed for a picture with VMA Nominated band, The Wanted. While the Fab 5 hit the carpet, the boys of The Wanted –Jay McGuiness, Siva Kaneswaran, Tom Parker, Max George and Nathan Sykes – picked up new head phones in the Velodyne Acoustics listening room.

Later that night VMA guests enjoyed the perfect panoramic view of Los Angeles at the Ritz Carlton destination while sipping on the newly launched sparkling liqueur by Timbaland– LeSutra. Guests were also treated to a private listening session by the one and only Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan of Karmin.

As an added bonus, specialty cocktails were provided by Voli Light Vodka and REFINE Mixers in the afternoon, and Timbaland’s newly-debuted LeSutra in the evening.

So HollywoodLifers, What did you do to prepare for the MTV VMAs?
