What the Celebs Are Doing This New Year’s Eve

They’re getting paid to host New Year’s parties. From New York City to Las Vegas to Miami the stars are out in full force. Even a DUI won’t keep Mischa Barton down; we reported earlier that she’s still planning on hosting the opening of Cathouse at the Luxor in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve.

In Vegas, Kanye West is hosting at The Palms, where 3,000 balloons will drop at midnight in the Pearl Theater. While Jay-Z and Beyonce may be hosting the party at Jay-Z’s soon to be opened 40/40 Club, although the club failed a safety inspection, so the opening seems iffy. Avril Lavgine will be hosting the festivities at Prive, with Lil’ Jon manning the turntables.

Ashlee Simpson and Mandy Moore will be hosting separate events in Miami. Simpson will be hosting the event at The Shore Club, with Eve singing and Pete Wentz playing the part of deejay. At The Raleigh Hotel, Mandy Moore will host the Belvedere bash in which the covered pool becomes a dance floor.

Lastly, Kid Rock will be holding down the fort at the Hotel Gansevoort. As long as Pamela Anderson or Tommy Lee don’t show up, things should run smoothly.
