This year was my second Grand Prix and like last year, it didn’t dissapoint. The highlight for me, shock horror, regardless of seeing him play live 8 times in the last 2 years (to say I’m a fan is an understatement), was Jay-Z. Yas Island always manages to bring in headline acts to cater to everyone’s tastes over the three-day Formula 1 weekend; last year being Kylie, Eminem and Nickleback, this year was Jay Z, Muse and Depechemode. Eminem for me will always be in my top 5 acts to see live, but my loyalties still lie with the Jigga!
Supporting was Timbaland, who I’m not sure has left the UAE since World Music Week where, let’s say he will always be remembered here for the guy who just about managed to put a tracksuit on and keeps his eyes open for his headline performance after smoking way too much ‘shisha’**. Nevertheless his Yas Island DJ set was great.
Oh and last but not least….some cars raced around the track and Tamara Ecclestone just so happened to be walking around with her new fragrance line. #ThanksDaddy
