Timbaland Has Tantrum at His Own People Magazine Pre-Grammy Party

Timbaland Pouts at His Party

People Magazine threw a pre-Grammy‘s party for music producer Timbaland at the Avalon Club Saturday night.  The party was celebrating a combination of it being time for the Grammy’s, an early birthday party for Timbaland, and to announce the new deal Timbaland has in place with wireless provider Verizon to create a mobile album and additional content.

The party was packed with celebrity guests and performers including Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Ludacris, Miley Cyrus aka “Hannah Montana”,, Fergie, Jordin Sparks, and Mr. AC Slater himself – Mario Lopez.  Paramore, Missy Elliott, and Chris Cornell were performers on the bill that lasted early into the morning hours.

During the show Timbaland was seen on the side of the stage essentially pouting and later grabbed the microphone and tore into People Magazine in a tirade that included several instances of foul language.  Before popping off at the mouth, Timbaland warned the crowd that he was about to outdo Kanye West in this public outburst.  The reason he was so mad was apparently some of his friends were denied access to the event and were waiting outside.  After he was done crying the party he just ruined was basically over.

None of this should be surprising to anyone.
