Star Sightings SuperBowl Week 2008 in Glendale

I will be the first to tell you I was born without a “sports gene”.  My husband will concur.  I really think I’d be more tempted to sit down and watch a game if I didn’t have to listen to all the sportscaster’s commentary.  Women have always taken the rap about being incessant chatterers.  I take it whoever started .that rumor had never listened to a sportscaster…blahblahblah.  It makes my teeth itch. 

That being said, having the Superbowl come to town doesn’t excite me all that much.  BUT…WAIT…Hollywood typically shows up at events like this and that does make it a bit more interesting.

So, Starwatch 2008 is in full swing. 

Heading the list in my personal opinion are George Clooney, Will Smith, Vince Vaughn and Will Farrell who are scheduled to attend the Creative Artistis Agency part at the Mondrian Scottsdale on Feb. 2

Sandra Bullock and her husband Jesse James, Tom Hanks, Jim Carrey and Nick Lachey who will be attending an invitation only party at upscale Skye Restaurant in Peoria on Feb. 2 starting at 7 pm.  Backtracking here…Skye will also be hosting Jordin Sparks and some of the other Idol runner-ups (there’s actually a photo of Sanjaya on the Skye promo page, does that mean he’ll be there too?) who will be performing on Jan. 30 and P. Diddy on Feb 1.

Ashlee Simpson will be performing on Jan. 30 at Myst in Scottsdale.

On Feb 2, Rapper and actor Ice-T and his wife, Coco, will preside over the DMS Bowl 2008 after-party also at Myst (taking over for Jamie Foxx who cancelled due to scheduling conflicts) following a concert that night at Veterans Memorial Coliseum by Akon, T-Pain, Ne-Yo, Fabolous and Eddie Griffin. They’re expected at the party, along with Black Street, Guy and Doug E. Fresh. (Ok, who are these people?)

944 Magazine is turning four acres of Scottsdale waterfront into the “Epicenter of Entertainment” or so they say.  Celebrities and Special Events From Thursday-Sunday of Super Bowl XLII Week include Wyclef Jean, Fall Out Boy, 50 Cent, Paris Hilton, Velvet Revolver, Juliette and The Licks, Paul Oakenfold to Own the Night. (I recognize a couple of these…just what is Paris going to do?)

Axis/Radius performances on Thursday, Friday & Saturday include performances by Snoop Dogg, Kid Rock, P. Diddy and Nick Lachey.

Mary J. Blige and Maroon 5 will kick off the first concert in the NFL Pepsi Smash Super Bowl Concert Series on Thursday, Jan. 31, at 7:30 p.m.

A gospel concert will bring Patti LaBelle and Donnie McClurkin to Phoenix Symphony Hall on Jan. 31. Rap star Ludacris will be the big draw at a Feb. 2 show at the Celebrity Theatre.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers will be performing during the halftime Show (this is the part of the game I will actually watch).

A post event reception where you can meet Jay Leno.  Tickets for this event started at $50,000 and are, sadly, sold out.  Sorry Jay, I had to take a pass (hey… isn’t that a football term?)

There’s a whole slew of famous athletes who are going to be hosting parties at their namesake restaurants or at the very least attending a party, but I wouldn’t know them if I saw them.
