It appears that Las Vegas, NV is growing more & more popular in the hearts of celebrities everyday!
Being a born & raised Sin City native, my views on this transition are very mixed. When I think of all my years spent in Las Vegas, celebrity encounters definately don't come to mind. I think of my youth, my family, my past. It's a bittersweet sense of nostalgia.
However, Las Vegas has always been an "adult playground" for wealthy celebrities since the beginning of well, LAS VEGAS. That's old news! Day in & day out, we watch the Hollywood crowds flock to our nightclubs & casinos in search of publicity, money & sex. Don't confuse these high-roller celebrities with the average folks just looking to have a good time!
As much as I adore the thought of my hometown becomming a star-studded metropolis, I still have my reservations. Las Vegans already have to deal with people constantly asking us, "Is your mother a showgirl? Does your family own a casino? Is your life anything like The Hangover? Do you hate Jesus?" Now they'll add, "Do you go clubbing with celebrities?"
Do you think Las Vegas is following in Los Angeles' footsteps? Feel free to share your thoughts!
