Never in a million years did MJ think that it would afford him so many opportunities to meet some of the most successful people in Entertainment and call some of his favorite celebs, his “friends.” (Or “celeBFFs” as we call it!)

Upon arrival, VIPs were given pink and orange PowerBalance wristbands and whisked upstairs at The Box, where they took pictures on the red carpet and enjoyed a gift from jewelry designer Lacey Ryan and a peek at the hottest new denim line on the market, DL1961 Premium Denim.
DJ Vito Fun had the crowd dancing all night long while MJ’s BFF and DJ to stars like Beyonce, Jay-Z, Kanye West and more, DJ Cassidy, emcee’d the special event.
After an explosive fourty-minute performance by Marla Joy, Cassidy came back on stage and introduced the surprise guests of the evening — the cast of “Real Housewives of Miami” — who came directly from an emotional taping of “Watch What Happens LIVE!” with Andy Cohen, to celebrate with MJ. The girls presented Micah with a customized three-tiered topsy-turvy cake from BCakeNY before dancing the evening away!

Halloween + New Years = Fashion’s Night Out 2010
To say that Fashion’s Night Out took over New York City on Friday night (Sept 10) would be the understatement of the year!
Despite crazy traffic all over town, Micah Jesse and crew “popped” all around in the Popchips Mobile, hitting Macy’s Herald Square for an interview with Joss Stone, an impromptu performance of “Livin’ On A Prayer” by American Idol Jordin Sparks at Kiehl’s, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and power publicist Lizzie Grubman holding fort for her newest client, Shopafrolic, at Barneys.
Oh, you thought that was it? No, no… part two:
We then “popped” over to the Meatpacking District, visiting DJ Cassidy at Tory Burch, Christina Ricci at Jeffrey, and the always fabulous Diane Von Furstenberg with the woman responsible for Fashion’s Night Out, editor-in-chief of Vogue Magazine, Anna Wintour.
But that’s still not all!
In the MPD, we also spotted Wyclef Jean, actor Neil Patrick Harris, designer Kimora Lee Simmons and Russell Simmons (not together) and gimmicky branding opportunities from companies like Barbie (a mobile “Catch Me If You Ken” bus with 6 male models posing as Ken), a Maybelline pop-up beauty shop, karaoke tents, live performances in the streets, and so so so much more!
Sounds like fun? It was!
MJ wrapped up an intense evening hosting a table at Legendary Damon‘s party at the Cabana’s at The Maritime Hotel, hanging with friends Estelle, Dawn Richard and boyfriend Que of Day 26, and even spotted the one-and-only Queen Latifah.
As Frankie Valli would say, “Oh whatttttta night!”Read More
