A roaming (but Romo-less) Jessica Simpson, walking through the lobby of Seattle's Hotel Monaco after checking out with her malti-poo, Daisy. "She had these huge, dark sunglasses on," an onlooker says. "She was going for under the radar." But – no surprise –Simpson was noticed by fans. "She was nice enough to pose for pictures with some guests in the lobby," the onlooker says.
Rihanna, stopping into the Betsey Johnson boutique in New York's SoHo neighborhood. The R&B star picked up four evening dresses during her visit. On the same day, Katy Perry stopped in, buying two frocks.
Gabrielle Union, dressed like a cheerleader at her Bring It On-themed 36th birthday party at a private home in L.A. The actress, who starred opposite Kirsten Dunst in the 2000 movie, made sure she matched her birthday cake – a vanilla and chocolate-chip ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins with a cheerleader on top. R&B group Troop performed for Union's 300 guests, who were asked to bring books and school supplies to be donated to a local elementary school.
She's becoming a fixture on the scene! Amanda Bynes, dancing the night away at Crown Bar in West Hollywood. Sporting a black tank and tight leopard-print skirt, the starlet and her usual crew of three girlfriends kept moving to songs like Britney Spears' "Womanizer." Also at the club: Jesse McCartney, enjoying a rather quiet night with his guy friends.
Adrien Brody, dining with Simon Rex at LAVO, the restaurant inside of The Palazzo in Las Vegas. The famous friends were joined at their meal with two other male companions. "[Adrien] was in town doing a photo shoot," a source says.
