So much for that.
Scottie Pippen and Larsa Pippen were overshadowed Tuesday at their own party by none other than Lady Gaga. The star stole the spotlight at the Chicago Bulls Charities and Bright Pink benefit in their honor at Studio Paris.
Lady Gaga befriended basketball legend Scottie Pippen after meeting him at the 24th annual Evening With the Chicago Bulls gala in Chicago, Illinois on Jan 8.
The pop star and her actor boyfriend Taylor Kinney got a basketball signed by Pippen, and later partied with him and his wife, Larsa, at hot spot Studio Paris, according to the New York Post's Page Six. There were so many suit-wearing security guards surrounding their booth it was difficult to see the diminutive "Poker Face" singer. Gaga dined at RPM Italian afterward for the second time in as many months.
"Transformers" director Michael Bay relaxed in a corner booth not far from Scottie Pippen after Bay's dinner at RPM Italian and visit to Public House. Earlier that day, Bay had lunch at Hub 51. Why was he here? It likely has to do with the next "Transformers," which Mark Wahlberg, the newest star of the franchise, claimed would film in Chicago this summer, according to RedEye.
R&B singer R. Kelly also made an appearance at Studio Paris that night -- his birthday. The Chicago native continued the birthday celebration Thursday at The Shrine.
