Music and Hollywood celebrities were out en masse at Tao in The Venetian and Lavo at the Palazzo after the 2013 Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena. Multiple BBMA winner Madonna dined with a group of friends after the awards in Lavo’s private dining room.

At the upstairs boutique nightclub, South Korean star Psy hosted a 2013 BBMA after-party. Psy donned his signature shades on the red carpet before taking over a VIP booth in the hotspot, where British singer Ed Sheeran, who performed at the awards, joined him.

Partygoers went wild as DJ Jessica Who announced Psy’s arrival as he walked to the stage to perform. Psy expressed his gratitude for his BBMA win and thanked the crowd for their support before performing his new release, “Gentleman.”

Psy, in a black-and-white checkered jacket, then followed with his smash hit “Gangnam Style,” and clubgoers sang and danced along as Psy’s manager, Scooter Braun watched from their VIP table.

Earlier in the day, “Breaking Bad” actor Aaron Paul and fiancee Lauren Parsekian continued their bachelor and bachelorette weekend at Tao Beach. Friends joined Aaron and Lauren in a cabana, where they relaxed and enjoyed new brunch menu items from Tao.

In the evening, the group dined at Tao and enjoyed satay of Chilean sea bass, lobster shrimp spring rolls, wasabi crusted filet mignon, orange chicken and other specialties. Also at Tao post-BBMAs: actress Chloe Moretz with family and friends.
