Noted film scholar and indie picture enthusiast Paris Hilton was up at Sundance this weekend because … there was a director’s cut of The Hottie & The Nottie, maybe?
But she was there nonetheless Friday night to check into Tao’s pop-up Park City outpost along with brother, Barron, and boyfriend, Rivers Viiperi — plus Danny Masterson, Jesse Williams, Mekhi Phiffer, Jef Holm, Ben Foster.
On Saturday, Adrian Grenier showed up because he continues to be tied to the entertainment industry, somehow. Nas got on stage to do a couple of songs, noting “We usually do Tao in Vegas and Tao in New York. This is Tao Utah. How real is that?” Which, considering it’s a temporary club in a city that people kind of only go to 10 days a year for a film festival … not very.
Checking out Nas’ set were Kevin Huvane, Mami Gummer, Gabby Hoffman, Karina Smirnoff, Troian Bellisario, Patrick Adams, Michael B. Jordan, Stephanie Pratt, Ben Lyons, Jason Kennedy, Sal Masekela, Scooter Braun, and Geyer Kosinski. Please note, not that Michael Jordan and Scooter Braun didn’t bring Bieber.
