  • Chris Brown makes some new friends at Elton John’s Oscar soiree

    Matt Donnelly at Yahoo! Movies Oscars Blog1 yr ago

    While Seth MacFarlane was making jokes from the Academy Awards' stage at Chris Brown's expense, the hip-hop star was making the scene at Elton John's Oscar viewing party.

    After mingling with host Elton John himself, Brown held court with a smoking crowd outside the restrooms discussing his latest album and the photographers he'd like to use for its various promo shoots. Entertaining two girls and two guys, Brown seemed content to stay on the fringe of the big screening -- one that saw a major reaction to the show's original song performances by Adele and Barbra Streisand.

    It wasn't all chat. The "Look at Me Now" singer -- clad in a grayscale printed blazer -- helped a party guest recover when she stepped on her own dress. The flustered female apologized and Brown offered a toothy smile, simply saying: "no judgment."

    Additional attendees at the bash include Heidi Klum, Jim Carrey, Kim Kardashian, Ian Somerhalder, Emma Roberts and others ... though omg! couldn't spot Brown's lady love, Rihanna, in the glittery crowd.

    For the glittery crowd at Elton John's Oscar viewing party, love is definitely in the air. Cute couples like Emma Roberts and her "American Horror Story: Asylum" actor boyfriend Evan Peters shuffled into the tented affair and took their seats to catch Seth MacFarlane's opening.

    Snapping iPhone photos of each other and giggling, the pair got a nod from a couple in "The Vampire Diaries" family, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder. That smoky duo walked the dinner floor sipping champagne and greeting friends.

    Meanwhile, handsome dads Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka enjoyed a date night in tuxedos, talking to their pals who just happened to be hosting the soiree: Elton John and David Furnish.

    Wrapped in an ornate fur shawl, Heidi Klum wasn't on the arm of her security guard beau Martin Kristen ... yet. A chatty friend on her team mentioned he's was en route to the fete. We're sure Heidi caught him up on everything he missed.
