Madonna’s Oscar Party: Adele Was Photo Shy, Gucci Paid for It, French Oscar Nominee Shot It


Here’s a little more we’ve gleaned about Madonna’s post-Oscar party held at manager Guy Oseary’s house. (You didn’t think Madonna would have all these people in her house, did ya?)

For one thing, according to Oseary’s Instagram page, Gucci has been paying for the party for 11 years. Why? Who knows?

Adele may have been there but stayed out of the group selfies. I can tell you that Adele has been living in the Hollywood Hills for the last year with husband Simon Konecki and their son. She made gazillions from the “25” album and tour. Plus — “it’s warm and sunny in LA,” says an insider. But Adele didn’t go to Madonna’s party. Simon did. In a post about the party, Oseary wrote: “We miss Simon’s wife.” I’ll bet.

Oscar nominated filmmaker and artist JR shot the guests at the party. They included Sam Rockwell, Greta Gerwig and so on. JR did NOT go to Vanity Fair’s party because he wasn’t invited. If and he and Agnes Varda had won, they could have attended it. But they lost. Varda, I’m sure, went home or to dinner. She’s 89.

@jr , Alejandro González Iñárritu and @madonna .. Oscars 2018..
