Roman Abramovich Knows How to Throw a New Year’s Party


So how was your New Year’s Eve? Cold and boring with lots of cheap booze and a sloppy midnight kiss? Yeah, sounds about right. Unless you were one of those lucky enough to land an invite to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich’s $5 million celebration. His guests enjoyed a New Year’s that was warm (it was in St. Barts) and entertaining (with performances by Beyonce, Gwen Stefani and Prince) with lots of pricey booze (he spent $2.6 million on food and drink) and a sloppy midnight kiss (not even a billionaire can change that).
