U’s grammy party an open affair

Gores, Hilton, 50 Cent on hand at party

HOLLYWOOD — There weren’t any red ropes or VIP areas blocking partygoers at Universal Music Group’s soiree at the Palm Restaurant.

One U Music rep said the design “was encouraged by Universal Music chairman-CEO Doug Morris, who wanted to create an all-inclusive, mingling environment for the label’s employees, representatives and artists.”

No boundaries put most of the room in touch with former vice president Al Gore and wife Tipper, who not only chatted with Paris Hilton but also socialized with winner Mary J. Blige.

Unlike other musicians, who put in appearances at fetes around town, most of U’s top-tier talent, such as 50 Cent and Busta Rhymes, stayed put at the Palm.
