Everybody wanted a piece of LeBron James' homecoming last night in Cleveland. Check out the NBA's "Coming Home" festivities before the Cavs game last night inside, and the celebs who kicked it courtside...
There was lots of hype last night surrounding Bron's return to the Cavs. He and his team lost their home opener, but the city was on fire with performances and celebs to celebrate the homecoming of Ohio's favorite son.
Kevin Hart jetted to Cleveland to do some pre-game hosting duties with Charles Barkley and co. They introduced the performing acts, Imagine Dragons and the homie Kendrick Lamar:
Kevin cuddled up courtside with fiancee Eniko. But first:
He flew in on a private jet and parked next to Cavs part-owner Usher. Peep his commentary:
Back at the game:
Usher, his protege Justin Bieber, and Michael Strahan chopped it up courtside.
And Ursh gave Bron a big 'Welcome Home' hug.
And before the Cavs took the floor against the NY Knicks, Usher belted out the National Anthem:
Super Knicks fan Spike Lee was on the sidelines cheering on his team in the hostile environment:
Ha. Gotta love it. The Knicks ended up pulling it out 95-90. Tonight, the Cavs travel to Chicago to battle it out with Derrick Rose and The Bulls.
Alicia Keys' Keep A Child Alive 11th annual Black Ball went down at Hammerstein Ballroom last night. And plenty of celebs came out in full force for the cause. Check out Alicia, her baby bump, her man, her performance and tons of her celebrity friends who came out to raise money to save children in Africa from the AIDS epidemic...
Oh, the sweetness. Last night Alicia took her bump out for a glamourous night of charity as she and her husband Swizz Beatz shared kisses and laughs on the red carpet of the Keep A Child Alive Black Ball.
The mom-to-be (again) rocked her favorite style--a grecian-inspired gown--with sparkling silver off the shoulder straps.
And she stopped over at Aretha Franklin's table to pay her respects to the Queen:
Aretha and this fur are determined to be the belles of this ball. She posed it up with her longtime friend Clive Davis (who was equally as influential in Alicia's life) as well.
Madonna was also there and snapped some pics with the woman of the hour. And speaking of Madonna, she snapped some us-sies with Kanye West (and Riccardo Tisci) too:
Hey 'Ye! Looks like he flew solo...meaning without wife Kim but with his...friend...Riccardo. By the way, Kanye popped up at an open mic night in New Jersey the night before, much to the surprise of the locals. He was there to support the 17-year-old rapper daughter of one of his closest friends.
Angela Simmons served up one of our fave looks of the night. This midnight lace Michael Costello gown was perfection:
Gorgeous. And the hair and makeup were on point as always.
LaLa Anthony, dressed in head to toe Moschino, brought her bestie Po Johnson along as her date.
We're loving everything about this effortlessly sexy coat dress.
