Stars from Justin Bieber and Drake to Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat and Tiësto hit the stage at the hottest parties leading up to Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles on Sunday.
On Saturday, Michael Rubin hosted his annual Fanatics bash at 3Labs in Culver City, where guests including Travis Scott, Kevin Hart, Shaquille O’Neal, Eli Manning, Charlie & Dixie D’Amelio, Robert Kraft and many more mingled as Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat performed.
Spies told Page Six that Leonardo DiCaprio quietly snuck into the party and hung out in the VIP section with his p—y posse pal Kevin Connolly.
While many of the A-listers stuck to their enclosed area, the Bella twins were spotted rocking out and singing with the crowd in front of the stage. Also spotted in the crowd was Ryan Phillippe having the time of his life dancing with his son Deacon and a group of Deacon’s friends.
“We used to start at 12:30 pm and everybody was too hung over, if we’re being honest with each other,” Rubin told Page Six of his famed day party. “So now we’ve moved it to 2 pm … We like the daytime party, we like bringing people together and it’s much better doing it in Los Angeles.”
Also on Saturday, Sports Illustrated hosted a party at Century Park attended by Jeff Bezos, Kygo, Jack Harlow, Julianne Hough, Diplo, Michael Bay and more. Across town Heidi Klum was spotted at DirecTV’s Maxim Electric Nights, where 50 Cent and Tiësto performed. The Kid LAROI and Iann Dior performed in Hollywood at Rolling Stone Live.
Drake took the stage past midnight for h.wood Group and Revolve’s “Homecoming Weekend” at the Pacific Design Center with a slew of celebrities in the audience including Justin Bieber, Cardi B and Lizzo. Bieber performed at the same venue on Friday night, which was attended by his wife Hailey, Kendall Jenner, Khloé Kardashian, Jeff Bezos, Lauren Sanchez, Larsa Pippen, Scooter Braun and more.
Also in attendance were many of the “Selling Sunset” cast, including exes Jason Oppenheim and Chrishell Stause, who we previously reported were feuding at the bash because he kissed another woman in front of her.
Meanwhile, Jonathan “Foodgod” Cheben was spotted chatting up Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy and “Bachelorette” exes Nick Viall and Andi Dorfman were also catching up. DiCaprio was also in attendance before heading to the West Hollywood bar The Nice Guy, where later that night three people, including rapper Kodak Black, were shot.
Across town, Shaquille O’Neal hosted his own annual Fun House party with performers including Zedd, Lil Wayne and Diplo. Jeremy Renner, Floyd Mayweather, Amber Rose and more attended.
The Super Bowl weekend parties officially kicked off on Thursday with Machine Gun Kelly and Halsey taking the stage for Bud Light’s Super Bowl Music Fest at the Crypto.com arena.
MGK went live on Instagram ahead of the show to share with fans that he helped design his stage set for the evening, which was pink and black and inspired by Mario Kart.
The rocker brought out a number of guests as he sang hits like “Candy,” “Emo Girl,” and “Bloody Valentine,” including Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, rapper Trippie Redd and punk rock singer Willow.
We’re told MGK’s girlfriend, Megan Fox, was in the building to support her beau, along with Barker’s fiancée, Kourtney Kardashian, who shared a few videos from the concert to her Instagram Stories.
After joining MGK to sing their catchy “Forget Me Too” collaboration, Halsey later took the stage to perform a rocking set of her own. The singer told the crowd that she was feeling “pretty nervous” all day on Thursday, as it was her first show in two years – after having a “whole a– baby,” son Ender, with Alev Aydin in July 2021.
The festival continued on Friday with Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton and Mickey Guyton, and wrapped Saturday with performances by Miley Cyrus and Green Day.
