Ultra is finally over: goodbye costumed teenager ravers and goodbye to all of the celebrities who swooped in to our beautiful city for a few days. From Weezy to a Kardashian sister, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande and the return of Justin Bieber, Miami was practically drenched in celebrities. In between all of the celebrity action, Miami-made dancers, filmmakers and poets got some national media attention and Zoo Miami welcomed some new baby leopards. 

Here's your midweek roundup of all of the best gossip:

  • On Thursday, Wyclef, Flo Rida, and hometown favorite Gloria Estefan all stopped by to celebrate Miami Beach's 100th birthday in style. 
  • The Red Bull Guest House also saw its share of celebrities including a member of the Kardashian family, Diddy and Weezy. 
  • That Kardashian was Khloe who was with and her on-again, off-again boyfriend, rapper French Montana. They looked very on-again
  • The New York Times praised the locally-made short film, Papa Machete, calling it  "hypnotic."  
  • The Times also enjoyed Miami City Ballet's Heatscape. O, Miami also got a mention in the Gray Lady. 
  • Justin Bieber joined Ariana Grande at her weekend concert at American Airlines Arena. Bieber was supposed to sing a couple of duets with the Boca-born singer, but it turns out he didn't know any of the lyrics. Bieber also chilled with Nicki Minaj after Ultra.
