The release party last night for Fabolous's new album, From Nothin' To Somethin', wasn't a complete bust; Fab seemed to be having a good time, eventually, posted atop a corner couch at Runway with a bottle of Level vodka and mugging for pics with the megaproducer Swizz Beats, his buddy. But outside, things went less well. It started early when one invited guest — Teyana, the My Super Sweet Sixteen subject turned Pharrell protégé — walked face-first into the bar's strict I.D. policy. Even borderline real celebrities like Cassie, the pop singer of "Me & U" fame, weren't immune: She couldn't get in, either. Even worse, the I.D. checks left an ever-swelling crowd waiting to get in; people yelled, charges of incompetence were leveled, and club management shut down the red carpet before Fabolous even showed. That meant there were none of the usual red-carpet interviews for reporters, which is why we can't tell you anything definite about anyone in attendance and are forced instead to invent completely unfounded gossip about the guest of honor. Let's say that Fab, too, has become a fan of Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" and has recently taken up, um, horticulture. "It helps me think," he might have said, if we had spoken to him, and if it were true. —Amos Barshad
