Of all the celebrities who attended Clive Davis’ Grandiose Pre-Grammy party at the Beverly Hills hotel last night, singer Alicia Keys was one of the few who had the common decency to bypass the red carpet while the body of the late Whitney Houston lay upstairs in her room at the same hotel. According to reports, Houston died Saturday of unknown causes at age 48.
A somber Keys arrived at the hotel’s rear entrance in a chauffeured limo with her husband, Swizz Beatz. Davis greeted Keys with a hug as she exited the limo. Inside the party, Keys posed for pictures with Sean “Diddy” Combs and his longtime girlfriend, Cassie. Surprisingly, Diddy also bypassed the red carpet.
