Sir Paul among game parties stars
A rich and eclectic mix of stars have been partying in New Orleans ahead of Sunday's big Super Bowl game, with CeeLo Green and Sir Paul McCartney among the biggest names.
CeeLo was the featured performer at ESPN Magazine's party, which had a guest list that included US swimmer Michael Phelps, Kelly Rowland, Anthony Mackie, Jeremy Piven, Josh Hutcherson, and current and former football players like Emmitt Smith, Cris Carter, and DeSean Jackson.
CeeLo performed with his old rap clique Goodie Mobb. The group, which was an offshoot of OutKast before CeeLo became a solo hit, is coming out with a new album later this year.
Although the ESPN party was the main event of CeeLo's night, he made it clear it would not be his only one: "New Orleans has got a lot to offer, I may get into a little trouble".
The stars were spread out across New Orleans: Sir Paul gave a rock royalty air to the Rolling Stone party, which featured performances by Flo Rida and Pitbull and guests that included Chace Crawford and Sofia Vergara.
At Audi's Super Bowl lounge, Will Ferrell, Jeremy Renner and Olivia Munn mingled, and Playboy attracted Neil Patrick Harris and David Arquette.
