On tuesday, the “Who’s Who” of the music industry got together in Monaco.
Pretabloguer got one of the exclusive invitations, which gave us access backstage and to the actual stars of the night. Besides Mariah Carey the scandal-singer Miley Cyrus were just one of the big stars at the glamorous World Music Award in Monaco. The 21-year U.S. musician was awarded “Best Entertainer” and the “Best-Selling Female Artist”. Nominated was Cyrus in 14 categories. When she got the trophies she was accompanied on stage by her brother Braison Cyrus, with whom she snapped a few pictures for her fans on Instagram.
Host of the evening were the Bay Watch Actress Pamela Anderson and rapper Jason Derulo. German fashion designer Wolfgang Joop and his young boyfriend were spotted in the audience, together with Victoria Silvstedt and Kellan Lutz. Awards also went to Ricky Martin and Tim Bendzko, Cassandra Steen, the band Fall Out Boy and the Belgian singer Stromae. The U.S. singer Mariah Carey (who arrived more than three hours delayed) was honored with a “Pop Icon Award” because she had sold over 200 million albums.
The German band “The Boss Hoss” got an award for its hit single “Do not Gimme That” the musicians rocked the stage and brought the room to a boil. The band wrote on Facebook: “Whaaaat? WE HAVE THE THING! ”
Traditionally, the World Music Awards are awarded based on the sales and download numbers. Some categories may also be voted online, so it was smart that the day before the event Miley asked her 47 million followers on Facebook to vote for her.

The Grand Prix 2014 took place from the 22.-25. of May. On Thursday I had to chance to help as a volunteer at the One Piece Day Gala at ”LE SALLE DES ETOILE” in Monaco. Jude Law is the Ambassador of this charity association and Jessie J was supposed to give a little concert. It was a mix out of ”Wanna-Be-Celebs” and the High Society of Monaco. Many plastic lips, tits and chins. I was enjoying the evening but just because of Jessie J who rocked the stage and Jude Law was real eye-candy.
On friday Max and I went to Amber Lounge. We talked about it in a previous post. A fashion show with the Formula 1 drivers and their wives/girlfriends was part of the show. Pixie Lott came 60 minutes late to sing her Number 1 Song ”Mama Do”. Max found out afterwards that she was late because she was having sex in room 421 at Le Meridien with her boyfriend instead of having her hair and make-up done. This exclusive information is from someone working at the Hotel who accidentally walked into the room just minutes before the beginning of the show.
Victoria Silvstedt also arrived late but had enough time to get her hair and make up done properly. Max took her to her seat after she was ready and they talked about her outfit. Victoria would have preferred a long dress but instead she was given a very short mini dress by the in-house designers.
Tamara Ecclestone and Kellan Lutz (Twilight) were the most famous celebs at the party sitting in the first row. Tamara came with her own security team but was very easy to talk to and agreed to take pictures with me after I had told her about our blog and the work we do in Monaco.
On saturday we were invited to the Infiniti Podium Lounge Party. We were welcomed with open doors. The security team had been informed about our arrival in advance so we skipped the queue. Inside we received free drinks at the bar. The party was ok, but not much different to a normal night out at Zelos. The Infinity party was supposed to be hosted by Sebastian Vettel, Formula 1 driver. We were very disappointed not to see the any of the promised drivers that night!
Finally on sunday we had the chance to watch the race from a private balcony overlooking Monaco and the race track. The atmosphere was relaxed we had great home made food and Champagne .
After that we decided to end the Grand Prix with the Sunset Lounge Party at the private Beach of the Meridien. Nico Rosberg, winner of this years F1 GP in Monaco joined the party together with some friends. A little fun fact: Justin Bieber tried to book a table the day before but failed because it was fullly booked. Next time maybe…
