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 — of course filled with beautiful blonde models — 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?” he asked. “Who 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 “Sorry,” scores of cell phones came out, but the singer urged the partygoers to put them away. “This is not a Prince concert,” he announced, referring to a restaurant next door where Prince had just performed at Roman Abramovich’s party. “I know when Prince said put your phones down he wasn’t even connected with anybody. For real though, let’s just have some fun.”
But overall, Bieber kept the vibe positive. He got on the mic, thanked “my crew from L.A.” 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?
