Mike Kyser and Angela Yee celebrated his and her second annual Bottles & Strikes event at Frames Bowling Lounge in NYC last night with a star-studded line including our most adored celebrities. Lala who was celebrating her Off-Broadway Debut of “Love, Loss and What I Wore,” Carmelo Anthony, Angela Yee, Charlamagne Tha God, AJ, Terrence J, Melyssa Ford, Necole Bitchie, Joe Budden, Estelle, Maino, DJ Clue, Meeka Claxton and as humbly as I can put it…myself! strapped up our laces and took to the 10 private lanes for bowling! The atmosphere was friendly as celebs mingled with the industry’s finest. Lala enjoyed a massive vanilla cake in the VIP section with her hubby Carmelo close by!
Jay-Z and Beyonce stole the show when they walked in heavily followed by bodyguard Julius and several others. I was lucky enough to shake his hand before they ushered him into the back VIP section where Lala and Carmelo Anthony were sitting. Jay was extremely polite, probably the nicest celeb I have ever met! He was very approachable and stopped for almost every fan he could, acknowledging the people that have a hand in his career. No pictures were allowed (I managed to snap some!) and every time a flash went off Beyonce ducked like she had been trained to avoid exposure. None-the-less she is just as beautiful as I imagined. Her baby bump was very much present and perfectly shaped underneath a draped shirt. They only stayed for a while. The last I saw of the two was Bey bopping her head to her man’s song as the elevator doors shut…what a night!
