And next Wednesday Jeffrey Mounts (aka Jasmine Rice) will be having his big 22nd birthday bash. Looks like he'll be doing the full Wednesday night circuit: Urban Mo's for the Dreamgirls with Chad Michaels at 8pm, then off to Flicks for Welfare Wednesday, then off to Mischief with Bianca at Rich's.

Mary J. Blige booked for White Party Palm Springs

Promoter Jeffrey Sanker announced this week that Mary J. Blige will headline the Saturday night White Party during the White Party Palm Springs weekend, the annual gay dance event scheduled from April 6 to 9 in Palm Springs.

She joins a long list of past WPPS headliners, which in recent years have included big names such as Jennifer Lopez, KE$HA, Robyn and Lady Gaga.

This year is shaping up to be quite a party! The weekends’ DJ sets will feature Dave Aude, Nervo, Manny Lehman, Theresa, Hector Fonseca, Dawna Montel, DJ Pornstar, Casey Alva, Scotty K., Paulo and DJ Grind; and in addition to Blige, Melanie Amaro, winner of the X-Factor (USA) 2011 will be performing at the Sunday Tea Dance, with even more entertainers to be announced later.

Hotel rooms at the host hotel, the Renaissance Palm Springs, are now completely SOLD OUT; however, there are still a few rooms available at the nearby Hilton Palm Springs.
