Nothing like ringing in the new year with my favorite lil dude.
Justin Bieber performed at Leonardo DiCaprio‘s very exclusive, very St. Bart-y private NYE party which begs the question- did he get time and a half for working on a holiday? Billboard reports:
Bieber treated the crowd to a mini-concert, singing a few songs as midnight approached. The audience –ÃÂ of course filled with beautiful blonde models –ÃÂ gave the love right back. There was a rotation of girls hugging and kissing Biebs, who started the night with a black shirt on, but lost it for good about midway through the celebration.
“Who is representing New York? Who wants to have a good new year?Ã¢â¬Â he asked. Ã¢â¬ÅWho has a good year resolution? Who was once not a Belieber, and is now?”
With the crowd in the palm of his hand, Bieber was careful to keep the evening a somewhat private affair, a treat for those who made it. When he started singing Ã¢â¬ÅSorry,Ã¢â¬Â scores of cell phones came out, but the singer urged the partygoers to put them away. “This is not aÃÂ Prince concert,Ã¢â¬Â he announced, referring to a restaurant next door where Prince had just performed at Roman AbramovichÃ¢â¬â¢s party. Ã¢â¬ÅI know when Prince said put your phones down he wasn’t even connected with anybody. For real though, let’s just have some fun.Ã¢â¬Â
But overall, Bieber kept the vibe positive. He got on the mic, thanked Ã¢â¬Åmy crew from L.A.Ã¢â¬Â and gave his necklace to a friend.
The star took some personal time for reflecting on the new year, too. A little later, Bieber walked down the villa steps to the beach. He took off his hat, sat by himself for a few minutes, apparently deep in thought.
HAHAHA, BIEBER had a nice photo op moment to himself, how ADORABLE is that? Dude’s still a total douche but I LOVE IT.
Other guests at the soiree included Robin Thicke and his teenaged bridewife, Kate Middleton‘s kid brother James and Kevin Connolly. But most importantly, there was a private chef at the event who cooked pizza and truffle pasta until 5 a.m, the true VIP.
Would you have wanted an invite to Leo’s NYE bash?
