Nicki Minaj had a pretty eventful NYE. She was performing Moment 4 Life when the clock struck midnight, and was shaking it so hard on stage, that Nicki’s dress split open. Not that it bothered her one bit because the New Year spirit(s) was running high. She carried on performing, as a witness reported, “holding her dress together with one hand, with a glass of Belvedere in the other.” Ã‚Â And she carried on singing while her stylist stitched up the dress! That wasn’t even the craziest part of the night—cleverÃ‚Â Nicki had the club’s DJ turn the clock back six minutes because she was running late for the party! The deal was that she was supposed to be on during the countdown, which wasn’t going to happen because of her tardiness. Not that anyone noticed at Mansion, but they all rang in 2011 six minutes after everyone else on the continent. Nicki’s New Year resolution should be making it to her own events on time!
A split dress and a near-disaster did nothing to dampen her mood, possibly because of her companion for the big night.Ã‚Â Even though he had his own hosting duties at a separate party, Drake booked it to see Nicki and they apparently canoodled till 4 in the morning. A source reveals, “Right after the clock struck midnight, Drake left his party at the W South Beach and dashed over to Nicki’s MoÃƒÂ«t & Chandon-sponsored bash at Mansion. [They] were dancing and cuddling all night.” Looks like Drake has a thing for cray-cray fashion-singer types.
The Snooki Ball happened! Well, the pre-taping did, and as previously reported about, everyone’s favorite guidette became everyone’s favorite hamster for a night. Snooki was ensconced in a glittering ball that gently descended to the ground as a part of the taped version of the 2011 Ball Drop in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. Dressed in a leopard-print wrap dress, holding a red plactic cup (because she’s classy like that), our Snookums looked like she was having a ball!

On New Year’s Eve Snooki will be hurtling toward the pavement in a very familiar part of town, only this time it won’t be because she drunkenly toppled out of her heels. TMZ reports that the Snooki New Year’s Eve ball has been spotted in none other than Seaside Heights. The translucent orb with light-up Snooki sign will deposit the guidette gently onto New Jersey soil, meaning that after Snooki goes down, she’ll be able to walk to her house in the morning. Which is probably how she prefers it anyway.
Insiders revealed earlier today that it was Times Square officials that stopped Snooki from crawling into her hamster ball this Friday. “The Snooki ball drop isn’t going to happen in Times Square. At midnight, the crowd and the media will be watching Mayor Bloomberg, Dick Clark and the official ball drop, not a cast member of the Jersey Shore,” a source explained. We guess since we watch the Jersey Shore crew the other 364 days of the year, maybe we can let this one slide. Besides, whenever we look at Snooki times stops, which would make the count down seem of anti-climactic. [Photo: Getty Images]
Get ready to ring in 2011 with a tiny guidette trapped in a hamster ball, everyone. Snooki has agreed to be inside a ball that drops in Times Square at the stroke of midnight on December 31. It’s kind of like David Blaine meets Jersey Shore meets Double Dare, isn’t it?
It will all be a part of MTV’s New Years Bash, which will also include an appearance by Flo Rida, as well as the rest of the Jersey Shore cast, and an attempt to break the world record for largest group of people to collectively fist-pump, but how boring is that compared to SNOOKI BEING INSIDE THE BALL? Did you ever think you’d get to see a Oompah Loompah plummet from the top of a tall building in front of millions of people? Dreams really do come true.
Jennifer Lopez has always impressed us with how short she hems her skirts, how deep she plunges her necklines and the creative uses of double-sided tape she employs to reduce boob-spillage. But who knew she would blow our minds while wearing an outfit that covered 99% of her body?
While we sat at home on New Years Eve (in yoga pants) watching Ryan Seacrest and his dropping ball, we noticed that Lopez, who performed that night in Times Square, was dressed in a shiny bodysuit and Cousin It-inspired fuzzy coat. It might have been the champagne, but we had to stare deeply into that bodysuit to figure out that she was not actually naked. For a mother of two she looks amazing, and we think it’s great that she’s finally embracing speed-skater chic. New trend in ’10? [Photo: GettyImages]
