The advantage of only two official inaugural balls? An early night.
The Obamas got back to the White House Monday night a little after 10 p.m., which left them plenty of time to celebrate at a private, late-night bash in the executive mansion for top donors, staff, and several selected celebrities. The exclusive party was not covered by the White House press, but John Legend, Katy Perry, and Kelly Clarkson were among those helpfully tweeting out news.
“I don't even know what to say,” tweeted Teigen. “It's 3:15am and I just teared up seeing our president getting down at the white house.” It was Perry who gave the definitive thumbs up: “All other parties from here on out will be judged unless they take place at the White House.”
And no, there’s no such thing as a private private party anymore.
