Sir Ivan’s “Kiss All the Bullies Goodbye” Record Release Party

Although it’s been a while, we finally made it back to the Hamptons. thanks once again to Recording Artist and Philanthropist, Sir Ivan, and another of his fabulous parties at his 15,000 square foot Castle in Water Mill, New York. To celebrate his new anti-bullying anthem and Billboard hit, “Kiss All the Bullies Goodbye” featuring Taylor Dayne and produced by Paul Oakenfold, Sir Ivan held a 70’s “love fest”. Inspired by the White House’s stunning rainbow colors after the Supreme Court’s decision on Marriage Equality, Sir Ivan’s medieval style Castle was lit up in a mesmerizing disco flashing rainbow light show.

More than more than 600 attendees, dressed as members of the Village People-inspired costumes (the event’s theme) were present to celebrate this song, many of whom Sir Ivan had transported from New York City to the Hamptons.

Guests were treated to a wonderful buffer-style meal and unlimited drinks. The event’s music was provided by Vienna’s Life Ball Resident DJ Sin Morera who played a 5-hour set, and aside from a performance by Sir Ivan, 28 world class professional Latin hustle dancers from Stepping Out Studios provided non-stop dancing throughout the event. The event’s festivities also served as a thank you to supporters of The Peaceman Foundation, Sir Ivan’s Charity. Both the Peaceman Foundation and Sir Ivan have donated more than $200,000 to 10 non-profit organizations that help prevent bullying.

Sir Ivan made a grand entrance for his performance, riding in on a custom made Ironhorse Tejas chopper, straight into his castle through a packed dance floor dressed in a leather biker cape embellished with a Swarovski encrusted peace sign. We were lucky enough to get video of his entrance and musical performance

Attendees enjoyed hours of non-stop fun, dancing to the pulsating music, touring and taking photos of the grand grounds, and indulging in the provided feast. Special guests of Sir Ivan’s “Kiss All the Bullies Goodbye” Record Release Party included: singer Pras from The Fugees, singer Aaron Paul, grandson of Omar Sharif and LGBT activist, Omar Sharif Jr., journalist Michael Musto, “Orange is the New Black” actress Farrah Krenek, and The Village People’s former “Cowboy” himself, Randy Jones. all in all, it was a wonderful event and experience, and we support and cheer on Sir Ivan for his continued efforts to make life better through his music and charitable efforts.

Prince Announces Welcome 2 America Tour

On a very rainy night, I ran up to Harlem for a Press Conference by Mega Icon, Prince. As I ran up to the Apollo Theater, I had no idea what the Press Conference was about as the invitation only stated: “Superstar Prince to make Exclusive Announcement”. The Press conference was supposed to start at 6pm, so I had limited time to sprint up there (luckily it actually started after 6pm, so I had a few minutes to get settled in). While waiting for it to start, we were treated to music from Prince’s album and I couldn’t hep but notice Prince’s name illuminated on the ceiling on one side and Welcome 2 America on the other. After several minutes of listening to some awesome Prince music, the curtain arose to reveal this poster

Seconds later, Steven Hill, Executive Vice President of Entertainment and Music Programing at BET Networks arrived on stage to introduce the superstar. He gave a riveting and enthusiastic homage to the icon. See the video below

Now on to some tragedy, I did have the full video of Prince himself announcing his tour and the other performers who are joining him on the tour but of course, my computer decided to crash at the same time I was downloading the video….sigh. So instead you must settle for only a photo of the Purple one on stage

As for the tour, he coyly proclaimed “We’re here in New York to announce a series of events that will begin on a purple day in December 2010” and listed the following friends that will be included on the tour such as Mint Condition, Janelle Monae, Sheila E., Cassandra Wilson, Maceo Parker, Lalah Hathaway, Esperanza Spalding and Sinbad. My favorite moment of the of the evening was when Prince told the audience – “Bring your friends, bring your children,” he said, “and bring foot spray because it’s going to be funky.”

Another highlight was the announcement that Prince will auction off this gold-plated Fender guitar

after the run of live shows, with the proceeds benefiting the economic recovery group Harlem Empowerment Zone. After the press conference, we were treated to Prince’s DVD from his London concert series called 21 Nights in London. The DVD included scenes from his concerts and interviews with fans including Naomi Campbell, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Elton John, etc. See below for an excerpt.
