“(The) Hard Rock is opening a club and I’m supposed to be opening up that new club for them,” so says the versatile artist.
The new nightspot, Vanity, is set to open on New Year’s Eve.
Still, the rapper formerly known as Puff Daddy won’t necessarily be at the Hard Rock when the ball drops on 2010.
Instead, he said he is scheduled to host a day or two after the grand opening celebration, on or around Jan. 2.
Still, he may very well be there at the Hard Rock on NYE.
“I may be out here, I may be shooting a television special,” he teased, adding with a smile, “I can’t give you any more details, that’s breaking news.”
Still, it’s pretty safe to say Puffy is planning to party somewhere in Las Vegas on Dec. 31.
The hip-hop heavyweight is no stranger to the Las Vegas club scene and likely has a litany of lucrative hosting offers on the table for New Year’s Eve.
“I’m the Black Sinatra,” he said. “I’m supposed to be out here.”
It wasn’t always this way for the rapper/actor/producer/fashion designer/fragrance developer/father/vodka czar. Whew!
“I used to come to Vegas maybe once every other year,” the outspoken 40-year-old icon said. “I’ve been out here already four times this year … This is the most I’ve been out here.”
