Swim Week snippets
Party animal Dennis Rodman made a cameo at the Minimale Animale show at Raleigh’s Oasis Monday night. He was joined by pal, shoe designer Lisa Pliner.

Nina Agdal does not have a clone. The woman can get make ground, though. The model was seen at various spots over the weekend but planted herself for awhile at the Lifestyle Retreat Lounge at the James Royal Palm, enjoying the fruits (vitamin-infused soda). Agdal was also seen walking around in a Viking helmet, a prop from the photo booth.

Jay Z (no hyphen these days) and JT paid tribute to Trayvon at their “Legends of the Summer” concert at Yankee Stadium, dedicating Forever Young to the slain teen. WPLG-TV reports the show will go on, citing a source close to the tour. A Live Nation rep did not respond to an email for comment as of press time.
