Attending an Official Grammy gifting suite hit a high note on celebrity-loving Spot Phoebe Rose’s social calendar. A Pug with her paw on the pulse of Hollywood, the canine correspondent gives a behind the scenes look at all the stars and the swag in the following report, which was filed with help from her Mom, Sheila Appleby Williams. To keep informed of Phoebe Rose’s take on all things Tinseltown, visit A Traveling Pug.
How do celebrities find time in their hectic schedules to always appear so flawlessly groomed and remain such tireless trend setters?
An Inside look at The Official Grammy gifting suite at the Staples Center in Los Angeles (prior to the Awards) is where Grammy nominees, music industry honchos and Hollywood heavyweights and hotties stop by to browse and (graciously) accept exclusive and luxury items from the high end world of food, fashion, entertainment and virtually any product that carefully screened participating vendors hope to parlay into celebrity promotion/endorsement.
Phoebe Rose, a celebrity Pug with a purpose and Red Carpet blogger, noted that celebrities (just like us) love free stuff-only their free stuff is a heck of a lot better!
Check out what when on when Miss Rose high-tailed it over to the VIP tent.
“Sorry Phoebe, no chocolate for you,” says Emanuel Andren-5th generation Chocolateer to Sweden’s Royal Family (they won’t travel anywhere without their chocolate). Phoebe’s Mom got to sample a blueberry, cheese and jam chocolate-“delikat!” (Swedish for delicious).
Band members of The Fray joined Phoebe in admiring this leopard tent from Field Candy-these guys can definitely spot a trend!
Wow, Red Carpet Manicure has 24 kt gold in their nail polish- unfortunately no canine polish (yet).
Just when I was really starting to enjoy my massage with the ReFa Platinum Electronic Roller (from Japan)……
“But why did she stop?”
Got my game on as a spokesmodel for New Era Hats-official hatter for all the major league sports teams-“cool.”
A beautiful line of jewelry supporting the American Cancer Society- designed by Simone I. Smith (wife of LL Cool J).
Another Rose -this of course is Amber Rose (former squeeze of Kanye West) and now a model for Smirnoff Vodka. Amber took a quick break from checking out (and leaving with) the old school aviator sunglasses from the Solstice Sunglass Boutique and Safilo USA suite. She has two pugs and showed us their photos on her gold Swarovsky crystal cell phone.
Fold up shoes by Butterfly Twists to carry for soothing tired stiletto strained tootsies -very cute and girlie-“Uh, I’m not sure how to promote this.”
Wow! Even Weird Al showed up to check out the great stuff!
Glee’s newest addition, Damian McGinty-“love his Irish accent.”
This is Lash Fary-he’s the founder of Distinctive Assets (PR for the Grammy gifting suite). We coordinate well, no?
Now this guy is really cool-he’s Deadmau5, the DJ-spotted at the Gibson guitar display. His feline friend, Professor Meowingtons has close to 100,000 Facebook followers!
I’m not sure what this guy is doing, but since he’s a three time Grammy nominee saxophone player-Ski Johnson, it must be okay.
