With Britney Spears already making a splash and Kanye West and Christina Aguilera hosting bashes Saturday night, here is a look at how the rest are celebrating so far ...
Nelly Furtado – with newly blonde hair – hosted a pre-VMA party Friday night at Jet with friends and backup dancers by her side. Still, the singer only had eyes for one person: her fiancé Demacio Castellon. In a short, flowing pink gown, Furtado spent most of her evening dancing with her beau. She did take a break to greet rapper Eve and the two chatted until Eve headed to her own VIP table on the other side of the club. The party continued well past 2 a.m. – with the arrival of Timbaland and his entourage.
