Every day a multitude of stars wanders through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
The beauty of New Year's Eve falling on a Thursday is that you can essentially keep the party going all weekend. That's exactly what many top stars did over the past few days, as nobody seemed bothered by their hangovers and continued to hit clubs and party spots nationwide. Diddy and Rick Ross jumped on the party bandwagon on Saturday night (January 2) when they attended the opening of a new club called Vanity, located at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. (Though they probably had a fully stocked bar at the party, Diddy brought along some of his favorite Ciroc vodka just in case.)
The new year seemed to be prime time for establishments to throw up their velvet ropes and welcome in stars, as Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy all threw down at Play in Miami Beach and Pete Wentz hosted a New Year's Eve party at the Jet club in Las Vegas. But it wasn't all about partying, as Nick Jonas spent some time volunteering at the North Texas Food Bank in Dallas.
