DiCaprio’s Bicoastal Club Crawl
Leonardo DiCaprio is not letting a little thing like the 2,352 miles between Indio, Calif., and New York get in the way of his social life. On April 18, the Wolf of Wall Street actor, who has been rocking a rather hirsute look as of late, replete with a ponytail and fedora, checked out former Swedish House Mafia member Steve Angello, who was spinning at Marquee NYC in Chelsea. A spy says that DiCaprio left around 1:30 a.m. with a brunette he had been socializing with at the club. Almost a week earlier and a coast away, DiCaprio, in shorts and a blue T-shirt, checked out the pop-up Desert Soho House at Coachella at the Merv Griffin mansion in La Quinta. He arrived in the late afternoon of April 12 with a small entourage that included actor friend Lukas Haas. Also seen at the ritzy location were Florence & The Machine frontwoman Florence Welch and, on April 11, Katy Perry, who arrived in a van with an enormous entourage and was whisked away to a private cabana by the lake at the Grey Goose-sponsored site.
The Jett Set
Joan Jett hosted a private dinner with a group of A-list friends following her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 18. Among those who broke bread with the “I Love Rock ‘N Roll” singer in the Foundation Room of the Cleveland House of Blues were Paul McCartney; Tommy James, who wrote Jett’s hit cover of “Crimson & Clover” and performed it with her at the ceremony; Dave Grohl, who also jammed with Jett; Alice Cooper; Steven Van Zandt; and Miley Cyrus. Speaking of Cyrus, a spy tells Overheard that the “Wrecking Ball” singer showed up to sound check wearing the heart-shaped pasties adorned with the letter “J” that she showed off backstage during the ceremony. Now that’s commitment.
