LOS ANGELES — Sean Parker is in a partying mood. He has invited 700 of his closest friends to his $55 million home on this starlit evening to celebrate the launch of his latest project, which he describes as the most important thing he has done in his 36 years.
It’s bigger than Napster, which upended the music industry, he says. More life-changing than Facebook — which now has more than 1 billion users.
On the grounds of the billionaire’s mansion, which glows with several thousand white candles and is decorated with elaborate arrangements of succulents, it is as if the world has been turned upside down. Tom Hanks, Keira Knightly, Katie Couric and Bradley Cooper are milling about. California Gov. Jerry Brown makes a cameo appearance. Lady Gaga and Katy Perry are here, too.
