Kris Fade's Diary
So I’m just back from the MTV EMAs in Amsterdam and it was off the hook! The night before the big bash, I went to a party for Monster headphones at a bar called Little Buddha.
I hung out with superstar producer Swizz Beatz as well as Jay Sean! Swizz is married to songstress Alicia Keys, and he joined her in Dubai for her gig this weekend. Meanwhile, he had a Dubai first to boast about – he filmed a music video at the Burj Al Arab! “I never put the video out, but I wanted to be the first person to do it!” he said. “I flew a helicopter off the helipad five years ago! I keep it in the archive and I’ll release it one day. Dubai’s one of my favourite places in the world.”
Jay Sean’s a Dubai regular too and told us how excited he is about his expected baby with wife Tara! He said, “It’s something new in my life! This is one thing I have no idea what it’s going to be like!” He says he’s going to be there for the birth too!
Later on, Ralph Lauren model Tyson Beckford rocked up (calm yourselves, girls) and we partied until 3am!
The next day was the Awards, and it was a show like no other! I met Ron Burgundy, from Anchorman, aka Will Ferrell.
Swedish beauties Icona Pop told me to invite them to Dubai! Jared Leto, from the band 30 Seconds to Mars, told me that he thought the UAE was “incredible” when they played here. “We can’t wait to come back!” he said.
Rudimental, who just played in Dubai for the first time at Sandance, told me how excited they were about it!
