Sweet sixteen parties for the gloriously rich and famous can already be seen on the MTV series “My Super Sweet 16″. They are exceptional mostly because teens really know what they want. And these teens, whose parents prefer to shell out the big bucks than to face yet another early adolescent tantrum, actually get what they want.
Maybe that’s why we enjoy the drama of the MTV reality series or why we follow celebrity parties, like those for their children’s Sweet Sixteen. These are the parties dreams are made of! They have the hippest music, the right scenery, the perfect dance floors, and the hottest DJs.
