According to this report from Bloomberg, “Dubai defied the economic crisis last night as stars flocked to South African billionaire Sol Kerzner’s Atlantis resort for a $20 million party that included the world’s largest fireworks display dazzling enough to be seen from space and a performance by pop singer Kylie Minogue.”
Fireworks that can be seen from space and Kylie Minogue? We think there’s a disconnect. She will always be the poor man’s Madonna to us. Odds are Kerzner used a British party planner — even frosty Queen Elizabeth flips out over Kylie.
If you were spending a reported $4.4 million to book the talent at the best party ever, who would you hire as the entertainment?
