I brought in 2014 on Miami Beach's palatial Star Island at the estate of Sean "Diddy" Combs. Having arrived early, I was privy to seeing the grounds during set-up for the private party.
Combs was very hands-on, in sweats, working along with a large staff, meticulously arranging furniture, checking and double checking details, and did so until nearly 10:30. He then went inside and shortly returned dressed in a tux.
Celebrities at the very exclusive event included Beyonce, Jay Z, Drake, T.I., Kelly Rowland, Fat Joe, Scott Storch, Damon Dash, Rick Ross and Robin Thicke, to name a few.
I had a great time celebrating and socializing until the sun came up.
