On Thursday night (Feb 9) I attended the Belvedere and (Product)Red party with an exclusive performance by R&B queen Mary J Blige. The red carpet was sprinkled with celebrities, among them Belvedere spokes person (and vodka lover) Chelsea Handler, Sophia Bush, Paris Hilton, Natasha Bedingfield, Kelis and Skrillex, yes Skrillex.
While the drinks were flowing (the entire bar area was covered in pre-made Belvedere cocktails to enjoy at your (ir)responsible leisure), the DJ was spinning, getting everyone excited for Mary J Blige’s performance. The event raised money for the Global Fund – one of the world’s leading financiers of programs to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa.

Miss Mary took to the stage wearing a spandex and leather one shoulder ensemble and her signature knee high boots – accentuating her fabulous figure. She opened the set signing some of the latest material off her new album My Life II….The Journey Continues and closed with some of her most iconic hits “Family Affair,” “No More Drama” and “Just Fine.” Joining Blige on stage was dub-step DJ, producer and Grammy nominee Skrillex, who added a little house flare to Blige’s hits. Just fine indeed!
