Trends, fashion, celebrities, events, music, and all things only Vegas
Las Vegas has always been a haven for spotting celebrities, with the rich and famous popping in and out of town for various events and just to have a good time.
But many celebrities also call Vegas home. Virtually every sport has some star athlete that resides in Las Vegas. Baseball has Greg Maddux. Tennis has Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf. Boxing has Floyd "Money" Mayweather, and for MMA, UFC president Dana White calls Las Vegas home. NASCAR stars Kurt and Kyle Busch live in Las Vegas, too, as does BMX rider T.J. Lavin.
Vegas is also home to legendary performers, including Brandon Flowers, Penn & Teller, Gladys Knight, Marie Osmond and of course, longtime Vegas icon Wayne Newton, whose home, "Shenandoah," will be open for tours soon.
