Fresh from ringing in 2011 at LAX Nightclub at the Luxor Las Vegas the night before, Sean “Diddy” Combs was at it again as he continued the New Year weekend celebration at PURE Nightclub inside Caesars Palace, Saturday night (January 1). The hip hop icon arrived at the Las Vegas hotspot a little before 1 a.m. with his usual large entourage, including record producer Dallas Austin and rappers Too Short and Red Cafe.
Hundreds of fans lined up outside the casino floor and chanted “Diddy” as he made his way through the crowd to the red carpet. He was then escorted through the packed house, stopping to say hi to a few fans before heading to PURE’s iconic stage. After settling in at his VIP table, he asked the DJ for a mic and welcomed everyone to his second New Year party. From that point on, it became a “Diddy party” where he generously poured shots of his CÎROC vodka to lucky fans on the packed dance floor. While on stage, he was seen dancing and rapping along to his smash hits. Diddy ended the evening wishing everyone a prosperous New Year before calling it a night heading out around close to 4 a.m.
