Kanye West, Jay-Z party for 'Throne'; Paltrow hits the Hamptons

Kanye West and Jay-Z attend a "Watch The Throne" listening event.

Feud between Jay-Z and Kanye West? What feud? The Ministry has all the latest star sightings, including a very harmonious promo appearance by Jay and Mr. West to promote their joint album "Watch the Throne."

Despite rumors of creative differences in planning their hotly anticipated tour for the album, Jay-Z and Kanye turned up Monday at New York City's Hayden Planetarium, nestled within the American Museum of Natural History.

The two men beamed at one another as they played tracks for a few lucky fans, including Jay-Z's wife Beyonce, her Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland, rapper Nas and Beyonce's "Obsessed" costar Idris Elba.

The tension-free event doesn't mean the "Throne" tour will come without complication, however. Ticket demand and added dates have pushed a slated Sept. 22 start in Detroit to Oct. 29 in Atlanta, according to promoter Live Nation.

Gwyneth Paltrow goes buggy

Gwyneth Paltrow enchanted the Hamptons with mother Blythe Danner the day of the "Throne" preview, as the annual Baby Buggy Summer Celebration took place Sunday in the celeb beach haven.

Championed by Jessica Seinfeld, wife of funnyman Jerry, Baby Buggy supplies families in need with essentials to care for young children. Paltrow and Danner, Rachel Zoe, Gayle King, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos all came through, raising almost $300,000 for the cause.

Over on the Left Coast

Los Angeles has seen all kinds of summer sightings from off-duty celebs. Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and his on-the-mend son Christopher enjoyed some quality time recently in Santa Monica. The actor-turned-politician and his boy, hobbling a bit but in good spirits, were spotted together at the Fairmont Hotel.

Over in Malibu, close Kardashian family pal Brittany Gastineau hosted a day of girly glamour on a beachfront property for her mom Lisa and entertainment anchor Maria Menounous. "Entourage" star Jerry Ferrara stopped through with girlfriend Alexandra Blodgett while the ladies sipped VnC speciality cocktails and received Keratin complex dry shampoo treatments.

Also spotted out: Charlize Theron enjoying a business lunch at West Hollywood Italian joint Ago. Later on at dinnertime a newly single Kiefer Sutherland stopped through with two male pals ... Trace Cyrus relaxing at Hemingway's in Hollywood, telling friends he's kicking his smoking habit with a South Beach Smoke e-cigarette.
