Apparently, it was all about crypto and techno at Elon Musk’s “Saturday Night Live” afterparty following his controversial hosting gig on the show. Ian Schrager opened up his downtown party hotel Public for the first time in 14 months to fête the Tesla CEO and his guests, including girlfriend Grimes and the “SNL” episode’s musical act, Miley Cyrus.
“It was a cryptocurrency-themed bash for Elon,” an insider told, according to Page Six. “Ian opened it just for Elon and his guests. Girls were dressed as aliens, walking around with trays of Dogecoin cookies and cupcakes, and there were Dogecoin ice sculptures.”
Dogecoin, featuring a much-memed Shiba Inu dog as its mascot, is Elon Musk’s favorite cryptocurrency, which he referenced several times throughout the night as he hosted. “A dog handler also brought a live puppy version of the mascot and walked it around the party. It was like a good-luck token,” the source revealed.
Grimes, 33, and Elon Musk, 49, spent much of the night dancing to techno with Miley Cyrus, who was there with her crew and hanging out with The Kid Laroi, Keegan and producer KBeaZy. “Everyone was in a great mood, dancing. Miley was obsessing over the escalators and a yellow pool table. She said she wanted one of those at home,” the source said.
