For much of his career, Ferrell has been saddled with the gift and the curse of looking exactly like Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. This has resulted in a playful rivalry between the two men, with Ferrell pretending to be Smith after a recent Reddit AMA. Smith didn't take the insult lying down, challenging the comedian to a musical duel – drum vs. cowbell – all in the name of charity.

Originally posted 08/07/2012 06:00AM

Chicago got a taste of Hollywood over the weekend, as stars made their way to the Windy City for the Lollapalooza music festival, where a slew of acts performed, including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Florence + the Machine, Kaskade and Avicii.

Jenny McCarthy, who has been spending a lot of time there with her Chicago Bears beau Brian Urlacher, skipped the festival itself, but took part in some festivities, sans her man.

Arriving at the Gilt City Better than Backstage rooftop brunch, the Playboy cover girl – clad in a pair of M2F Brand Denims and sky high platform shoes – nibbled on veggies and dip, and took in the skyline.

"She looked very happy and seemed really excited to meet Chicagoans at the party," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

DENIED: John Kay of the rock group Steppenwolf says Paris Hilton approached him about using the band's 1968 anthem "Born to Be Wild" on her FOX TV show The Simple Life – and that he refused her idea outright.

The band's songs, including "Born to Be Wild" appeared on the soundtrack of the classic 1969 road trip film Easy Rider.
