Miami Star Report STAR SIGHTINGS Words by Miami kicked off its so-called "season" slowly but surely, with a star sighting here and a star sighting there, but the Magic City soon lived up to its nickname, and then some. Once the election heated up, Angels descended on our sandbar, and everyone arrived in town to check out at some art, and kiss 2008 good-bye. In October, Serena Williams was seen taking a dip in the ocean and frolicking under the sun on South Beach. For his part, her boyfriend Common hosted a 944 Magazine release party at Mansion. Lil Wayne celebrated his birthday in a big way at Mansion, where, in the midst of the country's financial crisis, he received a Louis Vuitton bag stuffed with a cool one million dollars. Uh … nice.

New York Yankee and part-time Miamian Alex Rodriguez found himself right in the eye of the Madonna-Guy Ritchie storm 168 MIAMI LIVING SCOOP 168 MIAMI LIVING Miami Star Report STAR SIGHTINGS Words by Martin Haro Mary J.
