Kanye West namechecks LIV, Ronaldo keeps partying

 

lank@aol.com

You’d think the leakage of Kanye West’s Yeezus Friday was the second coming of, well, never mind. But for LIV’s David Grutman, it kind of is. West’s single On Sight, produced by Daft Punk, name checks the Grand Poohbah of clubland at the 1:40 mark, saying something to the effect of “Took her to the Bleau, she tried to sip the fountain, that’s when David Grutman kicked her out. . . .”

We asked Grutman his thoughts on joining the ranks of Kathie Lee Gifford, Tom Cruise, Jennifer Aniston, John Travolta and Jake Gyllenhaal, all names West has previously dropped in his songs, to which he replied, "It’s pretty f-----g sick. It doesn’t hurt that it’s the first single off the much anticipated album and that those Daft Punk guys produced the song. Pretty special." When we asked Grutman if West was referring to his baby mama, who, along with her sisterly klique and their assorted appendages, has spent many a night at LIV, he said, “I have no idea.”

The Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan enjoyed a weekend at the Shore Club with his pit bull Junior. Millan hit the hotel’s poolside restaurant Terrazza where he enjoyed the Italian restaurant’s spin on a Miami staple, a Cuban sandwich. As for the pit bull, well, according to a hotel insider, “At least he didn’t attack anyone. I’m sure we’ve had more rowdy guests.”

Portuguese soccer star Raul Meireles was seen with his wife Saturday, enjoying a day in the sun at the Delano pool. The couple enjoyed mojitos and lunch in a cabana. Also at the Delano Beach Club on Saturday was Toronto Raptors player Rudy Gay, who ate lunch with a large group family and friends.

Continuing his Miami party streak, soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo spent Saturday night at Bamboo for the hip hop hot spot’s one year anniversary party.

Former Real Housewife of Miami Karent Sierra is going to jail for a good cause. Sierra, a Coral Gables dentist who wisely passed (or was luckily passed over) on the show’s third season, is going to jail Tuesday for charity. At 11 a.m. Tuesday at The Airport Sheraton in Dania, Sierra will be arrested and sent to the Jail & Bail headquarters at the Broward Sheriff’s office to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Jail & Bail is an annual fundraiser that will continue through Friday. Sierra’s charges? Too smart, very pretty and extremely sweet.”
