Earvin Magic Johnson stopped chasing thots long enough to stop by the Carousel of Hope Ball. Since beating AIDS, and Skype chatting with the Obamas isn’t a big deal, he accepted the Brass Ring Award. He wanted Kim Kardashian to give him the honors, but Kareem Abdul- Jabbar was the only one who had time. All the money was collected, and given to Children’s Diabetes Foundation and Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes.
Everyone was invited, accept you, and I. Jay Leno ignited his hosting dreams by emceeing the event. You could find more Hollyweirdos in the show, than at the Cannes Film Festival. Music icons- Barry Manilow, Johnny Mathis, Rod Stewart, and Natalie Cole, sipped expensive champagne. Comedy legends- Kathy Griffin, and Jon Lovitz, kept the crowd rolling. Magic Johnson had Barry Gordy, Quincy Jones, and Clive Davis, in the same room. Angelica Huston, Diane Keaton, Bellamy Young, Raquel Welch, Joan Collins, and Larry King had a smoke session in the bathroom for the after party. We heard they had so much fun!
Jennifer Hudson, Josh Groban, and Babyface, entertained the crowd. Kimye’s wedding was Top Ramen Noodles compared to Magic Johnson’s Brass Ring Award party. LaTimes:
In recognition of Johnson’s humanitarian efforts, Jabbar described the honoree as an extraordinary athlete, extraordinary human being and a proven leader, before adding a few words about Johnson’s famous smile. “You know that smile, the one that can light up a room, brighten an arena and illuminate the world,” he said.
