How Daft Punk Stole the Post-Grammys Party
The awards show's big winners celebrated -- on their own dimes -- at L.A.'s Park Plaza Hotel with Jay Z, Beyonce, Madonna and many others.
A version of this story first appeared in the Feb. 7 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.
Daft Punk's post-Grammy party at the Park Plaza Hotel yanked a lot of heavyweights from the Universal Music, Warner Bros., Sony and Republic postparties, pulling in Jay Z and Beyonce (making out in public again), Chris Pine and Ellen Page (dancing together), Madonna with her kids and Lorde with entourage.
The wonder isn't that the French robotic duo got out the A-list but, according to sources, that they nearly paid for the bash themselves, with Perrier-Jouet ponying up free champagne.
